Lubricant is a simple product, but one that many people sadly never think about using. I don't use it every time, but I go through enough that I was all too happy to review Pink Unity for Fascinations. Unfortunately, K and I won't be using this lubricant again even if we run out of our other lubricants and there's a worldwide lubricant shortage in the future.
Pink Unity, by Empowered Products Inc., is a hybrid silicone/water-based lubricant. The ingredients are as follows: propylene glycol, water, cyclopentasiloxane, butylene glycol, dimethicone/vinyl dimethicone crosspolymer, hydroxyethyl acrylate/sodium acryloyldimethyl taurate copolymer. It's glycerin-free and doesn't smell like anything. Why would one want a hybrid silicone-water lubricant? I didn't know before trying this product, and after using it I still don't know.
Yes, Pink Unity does not stain. Enough of it washes away with water to make it useless in the bathtub, but not enough to completely clean the tacky residue it leaves off a toy -- you need soap for that. It took scrubbing with soap and water to get it off myself after vaginal sex with my partner as well. Not only that, but I could still feel it the next day.
This gel isn't runny, but it's thin. We needed to use more than three full squirts to do any good, unlike the one small squirt we use of our beloved Maximus water-based lubricant. We only used Pink Unity for vaginal sex; I don't want to think about how much would be necessary for anal use. Even using as much as we did, it didn't make things as comfortable as our normal lube does. It did, however, make things more slippery, creating less friction and less pleasure. I didn't enjoy it much, and K says, "it didn't feel good at all."
Tantus, Ophoria, and Happy Valley silicone toys, and it didn't melt any of them, but you should always do a patch test of your own before using a lubricant with silicone on a silicone toy.
I found Pink Unity acceptable for precisely one thing: clitoral masturbation with a hand. It felt pleasantly silky. But for vibration or insertion, forget it. Also, even if you only use it for clitoral masturbation, it will take a while to come off. I actually find it more difficult to completely wash off than my normal silicone lubricant.
When I took a picture of the Pink Unity bottle with Reyna, she removed the cap and started playing with it. So the cap is easily removable by cat. However, the lube isn't easy to get out of the bottle. We had to pump a few times to get it to start squirting. It's a nicely-shaped, sturdy bottle, though.
Maximus, and I like Wet Naturals Silicone for use in the tub.
Thank you, Fascinations, for sending me this lubricant to review. Fascinations has a large selection of personal lubricants for most tastes, as well as lots of sex toys, and they're a great company, so go check them out.
