Evolved Birthstones: Beautiful For a BeginnerThis is a wonderful little toy for those of us who are just starting on their sex toy journey. Between the price, design, and power, it really is tough to beat. The versatility will please advanced users, and the small size makes it great as an non-intimating introduction to clitoral stimulation among other activities. Between the shower, the bed, and your partner, I'm sure you'll find plenty of adventures to go on this bullet with.
- Surprisingly powerful
- Excellent price point
- Controls can be hard to use
- Lazy packaging
The slim size really helps to concentrate the vibrations at the tip, though this might cause size queens to shy away from trying insertion with it. Anyone from a complete novice to advanced user should be pleasantly surprised with this little guy's power, especially considering the fact it only uses a single battery.
At only fifteen dollars, this would make a perfect beginner's toy. It's easy to clean, versatile, waterproof, quiet, and compact.
One thing I noticed is that this particular bullet had no lingering new plastic smell, and it doesn't attract lint. It's ready to go from right out of the box (just remember to add a battery first; it doesn't come with any), but you should give it a quick clean just for your peace of mind.
Seemingly seam-free, everyone should enjoy the fact that this guy has no resistance when it comes to insertion. Though advanced uses might be bored by the lack of texture, this makes it good for those of us who are newer to sex toys.
When it comes to clitoral and nipple stimulation, the design allows for enjoyment by anyone of any experience level. Size queens will be left wanting for more when it comes to insertion, as will most average users. Speaking as a PIV-sex virgin and as a girl with narrow pelvic bones, I found the small circumference refreshing. I had been looking for a vibrator that was discreet and lacked girth to no avail, until I came across this toy. If you're looking for something small to experiment with, this might be the perfect thing for you. I enjoyed using it without the power source in, just to fool around with penetration without the vibrations.
The design isn't the best when it comes to thrusting, and the plastic can make it slippery if you decide to take advantage of its water-safe features. As a lefty, the turn-dial can be hard to operate. While it is supposedly multi-speed, I did not find that to be true. It seemed to go between full-speed, barely on, and off. Just the slightest twist of the ring can cause it to change, and it's rather easy to accidentally turn on. Make sure to remove the batteries after use if you need to be sneaky.
Speaking of being sneaky, this guy is perfect for travel. It's quiet, making it good for dorm life, and slim enough to store just about anywhere. It would fit nicely in a purse or pencil case, and at a glace it might even be mistaken for a fat, fancy pen. It fit nicely in the pocket of my robe, and I used it several times in the hall bathroom without a hitch. It does not come with a pouch for storage, however.
The controls, as a mentioned previously, can be hard to use. The plastic makes it hard to get a grip, especially if you have slicked-up hands, and the ring can be over-sensitive to adjustment. Given the price tag and the other features it makes it a bit hard to complain. Oh, and the product does NOT come with batteries, but it only requires a single AAA to run.
Have I mentioned how quiet this is yet? It's nearly silent. Over a shower it is impossible to hear, and in the bathroom it could easily be mistaken for a muffled electric toothbrush. You have to hold this quite close to your ear to hear anything if there are other noises going on, and even in a dead room the sound is not exactly invasive. If your roommate is a heavy sleeper you could even get away with using this while they take a snooze.
Not that you would need to do that, when you can just get away to the bathroom. After testing it out in the tub and in the shower, it performs well in both places. You shouldn't submerge this completely for very long, just to be on the safe side, but extended bath time use should be no problem.
Being so tiny, it's a very easy toy to store. You could leave it loose, or find a little bag to put it in. Storing it with other plastic toys should be fine, but be careful about glass, since it might mark it up if they get moved around a lot.
This toy is otherwise very low maintenance. If you want to get the most out of it, just remove the battery after use to help it last the longest it can.
The clear, flimsy plastic casing holds the toy in place by only a small cut-out on the inside. It only gives the company, "Miss (Month)", an email, and a list of features. It advertises a one-year warranty as well. Though the clear case gives you a perfect idea of just what you're buying, I would be leery about what could happen in the mail if the package gets a little too jostled. I would not recommend that you store the toy in the packaging.
Though no instructions were included, and with a little wrapping it would be a cute gift idea (although I'm not sure how many people you would want to give a fifteen dollar vibrator to as a gift). There is no further wrapping other than the box, and for some reason they put a paper insert inside of the battery compartment which you can get to by screwing the gemstone / colored ring part of the bullet off. I'm also not sure if the plastic is recyclable.
