Do you have an ink dependence? I can help...

Sailor Jentle Peche

This ink was provided to me, free of charge) by JetPens for review purposes.
There's just a little bit of sheen at the top right of this picture. 
There are only two of the Sailor Jentle inks that I hadn't tried (and reviewed). One is Epinard (which I just got, and will write up soon) and the other is Peche. Both of these inks are on the "cancelled" list from Sailor, so if you like what you see, you need to get on the stick and pick up a bottle or two of your favorites. At the time I'm writing this, JetPens only has 5 bottles of Peche.

Like the other Sailor Jentle inks, this one behaves really well on a variety of papers. Unlike them, this one isn't very saturated at all. It's a really pale pink that reminds me more of the peonies that I had this year than of peaches. The only other light Jentle ink is Apricot (reviewed here), and that one is certainly dark enough once you start writing with it. This one might not be.

The paper that I used for this review is from Staples, and it's a wheat-paper of some sort. It's almost as good as sugarcane papers, but it does tend to be more absorbent. I printed the dots using a pdf that I made based on a link I found on Reddit.

As you'll see below, the ink is a really pale one. I wrote most of this review with a dipped Pilot Plumix. I usually avoid using dip pens because they tend to put down way too much ink, and they're not (usually) an accurate representation of saturation and such. This time, though, it's pretty much the same. Peche is pale from a dip-pen and pale from a fountain pen.

The darkest parts of this review are written with a Conklin Crescent that had been sitting for a while. That pen tends to let the ink dry in the feed more than some other pens, and it made some of this ink a really neat brown-ish color. That darkness wore off eventually, and the ink lightened up again. It's worth noting that the pen started up just fine even after sitting for a long while.

Here's a close-up of the ink comparison. You'll see some of the new Sailor inks in there. Those reviews are coming soon.

So, if you're looking for a really well-behaved ink that happens to be a pale pink check out Sailor Jentle Peche. You can get it in 50ml bottles at JetPens for $16.50.

Not a lot of water resistance, but I didn't expect much.
