Pretty in purple

Are you craving a step up from your mother's cheap satin blindfold, but not yet ready for hard core BDSM blinders, look now further than this piece purple leather. While the mask may not fit everyone's face and block out all of the light, it is still a comfortable well made product that can be an asset to some fun times in the bed room.

Pretty in passionate purple.

The color is what attracted me to this product in the first place, though the product is lighter than the product photos that are up online. The blindfold is in my opinion designed for beginner or light bdsm play. It is made out of leather, faux fur and elastic. The fur is very soft and should only be spot cleaned with a damp rag. For the price point it is a well made product, but that is for the price point. This blindfold does not have additional padding around the eyes or fabric covered or smoothed edges as other more expensive products do and so while you can wear it for a duration, I would not recommend it for long intensive play. It does have very good stitching and I'm fairly confident when I say that the elastic will give out before the stitching does.

The product comes in a very basic clear clam shell packaging that I would not recommend for gifting as it gives it a cheap look. It is a ready to use product, though I suggest laying it out for a day before use for 2 reasons. 1) It's been folded in half and wants to stay in that position so laying it out flat makes it easier to wear. 2) It smells like a new car. That fresh leather smell, which is a little overwhelming, but it goes away once given time to breath.

My major problem with this product is that for me, it doesn't work. I expect a blindfold to blind me...this means no sight lines. However I can see out the bottom of this blindfold, as well as up the bridge of the nose. I do not believe that I should have to close my eyes to get the desired effect so for me this product is a no go. However, if your face shape is different, or if your nose is more narrow or smaller (I had friends test it out), you may have more luck than I did.
Experience
This toy does not shut out all of the light so for me it's not ideal. My partner who is newer to toys and BDSM is okay with that, but if I'm going to wear a blindfold I don't want to have to close my eyes too. That being said it stays in place, fit just fine and was comfortable for extended wear.
Follow-up commentary
Maybe if I had a smaller nose or smaller head in general this mask would work for me. I wanted it to work so I could justify investing in the rest of the crave line. Sadly no purchases for me in the future. This mask does not do the thing that it is supposed to. It does not block out all of the light. In fact it blocks out little light, at least for me. It is comfortable, it is soft, it is well made, but it does not work for me. Which in the end is unfortunate.
