I've had my eye on this toy too, but for those of you who have boughten it, can you tell if it is silicone? The description for VixSkin here on the site gives the impression that it is not, but the VC website indicates that it is.
VixSkin is silicone, but it's made with different types of silicone so the surface of the toy is softer than the inside.
The softer surface silicone does seem (from anecdotal reports) to be more sensitive to having silicone lubes bond with it, so if I had a VixSkin toy (or O2) I'd be a bit more careful with it than I would with my other silicone toys. Softer silicone can also tear a bit easier than the firmer stuff as well.
But it is silicone, and is OK with oil-based lubes, bleach, boiling, is 100% bodysafe, etc. etc.
