As I’ve begun to get just a little bit older over the past two years or so, I have realised that I don’t get quite so naturally “wet” as I used to. It’s nothing to do with a lack of desire or arousal, of course . . . in fact I’m finding thatI get more easily aroused than ever!
It’s more to do with just the natural changes in one’s body as we . . . “mature” . . . a little more. Our bodies produce less hormones, or estrogen, and so our “lady bits” tend to not get quite so moist as they used to. That’s why it’s important to have a nice lubricant close at hand for whenever the need may arise.
So I was absolutely thrilled to receive a parcel from Empowered Products in Los Angeles with their range of Pink personal lubricant products.
As I hope you will be able to see in my video review, or from the pictures here, the individual dispensers are just wonderfully presented. And what I particularly like is that as well as the twist-to-open, and twist back to lock-closed, nozzle to actually dispense the lubricant . . . each bottle is also supplied with a pull-off and then push back on, protective cap which means the bottles can be stored away after use without any dribbles . . . or unexpected ejaculations on their own accord.
Now all of the Pink Lubricants use a variety of botanical ingredients (including Aloe Vera, Ginseng and Vitamin E) specially selected to help minimize irritation and add protection to your skin tissue and private moving parts and membranes. These can also help increase blood flow and heighten sensations during those special moments.
And by using different combinations of these ingredients, Pink have six different products to try . . . all colour coded to make it easy to remember which one is best for you.
The first of that range, the “Pink” Pink . . . is available in four different sizes. 200 millilitres, 120ml, 100ml and 50ml. It is a silicone blend which Pink say is their most lubricating and long-lasting formula. It is water-resistant . . . so you can move into the shower, or even the pool, if you feel inclined! And like all of the Pink range, it is unscented and flavour-free (so none of that false sickly strawberry flavoured taste that I just don’t like at all !!!) It doesn’t contain any Glycerins or Parabens at all and is safe to use with most toys, but not recommended for any of your porous silicone ones.
The next bottle I tried . . . and actually my favourite . . . is “Pink Water”. As the name suggests, it is water-based and feels slightly “wetter” and lighter in texture than the silicone Pink. But it is still very smooth and slippery and doesn’t dry out. “Pink Water” has a nice subtle pale blue branding and has added extracts of Aloe Vera and Oat to minimize irritation, and Ginseng to increase blood flow and enhance sensation. It is available in three sizes of 200ml, 100ml and 50ml, free of Glycerin and is safe for use with all of your toys.
“Pink Indulgence” is also available in 200ml, 100ml and 50ml sizes and it’s unique combination of pure-water and crème emulsifiers . . . with a touch of silicone added . . . gives it an ultra soft and silky smooth feel, which makes it ideal for both lubrication AND foreplay massage (or perhaps, AFTER-PLAY massage if you’re like me and just love some “unwinding-time” massage on your back or feet after you’ve just enjoyed your ultimate pleasure!!!) “Indulgence” is free of Glycerin and is safe for use on all toys.
How about “Hot Pink”??? Pink say that this lubricant has their own, patented, warming agent that combines with your own natural lubrication to give an exciting and thrilling sensation that both parties will be able to sense. I must say that you don’t necessarily feel that when you squirt it onto the palm of ones hand . . . but both I, and one of my lovers I recently used it with, did notice a different sensation during play. So . . . !!!
“Hot Pink” is available in two sizes, 100ml and 50ml, and is not recommended for use with silicone toys. (It’s just a little too-hot for those toys!!!)
But “Pink Frolic” is safe for all toys because it is a purified water-based lube that has a thicker, longer-lasting feel than most other standard water-based lubricants. It is highly-concentrated and so is ideal for applying specifically to the spot(s) just where you want it as it quite thick and not so “watery” as the other bottled lubricants in Pink’s range.
“Frolic” comes in either 100ml or 50ml.
Now, as I said . . . I love the twisting dispenser caps to unlock and lock the bottles, but if during the heat of the moment you would prefer to be able to reach for a larger pop-top tube lubricant, then “Pink Unity” is probably the Pink Lubricant for you.
“Unity” is a hybrid silicone gel which combines silicone molecules and purified water to produce a satiny-smooth slippery-ness, so it is ideal if you feel you really do need extra lubrication. And I can certainly tell you that it does really seem to stay slippery for a long, long time! The tube is 100 millilitres and like the bottled Pink lubes, it is unscented and flavour free. Because it does contain some silicone it is not recommended for porous or silicone toys.
It is alcohol free and contains anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties to properly and safely disinfect and sanitize . . . and it’s soft foamy-spray content makes it really easy to evenly apply all over your favourite toys. And because it is foam-based, Pink tell me that it goes twice as far as most of the regular spray or liquid type toy cleaners you might be more familiar with.
You can see just how easy it is to use on my video! After you’ve applied it you should always wipe your toys over with a clean cloth and rinse with water and dry before re-using. “Sparkle” is available in 200mls or 50mls . . . and I really LOVE it!!!
I’ve mentioned when talking about lubricants in the past that I do think it is really, really important that what we put onto our private bits is safe and not going to cause any discomfort or infection. As you would expect, all of the ingredients are clearly listed on the labels of each of Pink’s products. But if you are like me and don’t have a degree in chemistry or biology . . . those lists can often be more confusing rather than enlightening. So I tend to base my acceptance of a product on the way it “feels” and looks to me . . . and I think all of Pink’s samples I was sent, do just “feel” and “look” right. The packaging of the lubricants themselves is stylish and professional . . . and the product catalogue that accompanied my “Pink Pack” is crammed full with information on all of the ingredients and elements used. And also has a really helpful “Frequently Asked Questions” section and information on the difference between Silicone, Hybrid and Water-based lubes.
So after having “tested” . . . quite thoroughly I might add . . . all of the different “Pinks” here, I can thoroughly recommend them all!

The Pink range of Intimate Lubricants for Women was sent to me, free-of-charge, by Empowered Products for an honest and un-biased review.
The Modesty Rider:
I realise, of course, that there are already thousands of long-established Sex Toy Reviewers and Review sites . . . most of whom will be far more adept at explaining all the technical details and specifications of things. But for me, sexy clothes and lingerie, sexy toys . . . and even sexy books . . . are all about adding a little fun and excitement to things. So that is how I tend to approach my reviews and videos!!! Just to explain “how it was for me” in a fun, and light-hearted, way without taking things too seriously! Chances are that if something makes me giggle and tingle and feel good, it will score higher on my Modesty Rating.
