New Vulva Dye Doesn't Really Work, But Is Quite Tasty

We mentioned the existence of My New Pink Button a few days ago. This new and exciting product promises to “restore the pink to a woman’s genitals,” since women don’t already have enough things to be insecure about. While Consumer Reports doesn’t have this on their testing schedule (yet), one enterprising blogger has tested the product so you don’t have to. And there are pictures. No, not that kind.

Apparently, the product doesn’t work particularly well. And it burns.

I put the product on and let it sit as the instructions advised. Things were okay for a few seconds, and then…THE BURNING! I have certainly felt worse, but it was very noticeable. The instructions assure me that this burning is “due to the ingredients reacting to your bodies own PH balance which is normal and will go away upon rinsing off the colorant.”

Rinse it off I did, and did I notice a difference? I did not. I will confess to you I took before and after pictures for my own scrutiny. Well hello there my vulva. Long time, no see. Sorry about the burning sensation.

For the purpose of some safe-for-work photos, blogger SJ then used the dye on her pasty Irish arm. After rinsing the colorant off, this was the end result:


I think we can go ahead and recommend that readers stay away from this product. Happy to help.
