Me Lovesss The Precious

Ok, so Alia doesn't have the powers that the LOTR ring has, but I think even Smeagol would drool over this one. Just like that ring, Alia does have some wicked to her – in the fact that this vibrator has taken my pleasure zones hostage (I'm not complaining) and has me wrapped around her proverbial ‘little finger'.

FIRST IMPRESSIONS:

I’m not one to jump on a product when first introduced to the public. I prefer to sit back and wait to hear what a range of buyers think. I broke all the rules when I saw the sophisticated Insignia Alia who is designed and developed by LELO Sweden. The unique appearance and shiny centre just begs to be touched and admired. She is my first LELO toy and I now understand why everyone raves about this company's products. They truly are high quality and are made to last. This alone gives me peace of mind.

MATERIAL ~ ODOR:

Alia is created with a silicone cover with an ABS plastic centre. Both the silicone cover and ABS plastic are non-porous earning this vibrator a rating of 8. They are also food-grade, hypo-allergenic, phthalates and latex free. Only water based lubrication should be used with silicone toys, otherwise you may find your lube blending with your toy. There was no odor at all to Alia which is a blessing on my sinuses.

COLORING ~ TEXTURE:

I chose the rose which is exactly the color you see in the product picture. In person, the centre is a slight gold tinged silver plastic which is impressive and adds to the luxury look. The silky smooth silicone creates very little drag on your skin so I haven't required lube with Alia.

CONTROLS ~ SHAPE:

Alia has three buttons embedded down one side of the silicone. Each of these buttons requires a firm press to avoid accidental speed or pattern changes in the heat of the moment. Firmly pressing the + will cause all buttons to briefly flash as the toy starts up on the lowest steady vibration. By continuing to press or constantly holding the + will take you through 6 speeds. At anytime, pressing or holding the – will decrease the speed and eventually turn Alia off. The middle button cycles through 5 patterns as follows:

1. Slow prominent pulsing
2. Fast prominent pulsing
3. Subtle pulsing
4. Long drawn out pulses
5. Powerful random pulses (crazy but nice)

The vibrations are prominent at the tip but are felt throughout the toy. A handy feature to have is the lockable option for travel or if there's children who may stumble across your stash. To activate the lock, simply hold down both – and + buttons simultaneously for 5 seconds. Either repeating the process or charging your toy with unlock it.

This toy is similar in shape to an egg, with two sides flattened and a hole through the middle. Sometimes I find the hole handy to place fingers through to form a good grip for control. Other times I prefer to cup Alia in my hand. The vibrator measures 3.38” in height, 2.12” in width, 1.25” in depth at the widest point (which is at the top) and weighs 2.4oz.

NOISE ~ POWER:

This toy is so quiet, it's perfect for anyone in a dorm or other shared living situations. It can barely be heard under the bed covers let alone through a closed door. I only wish more toys were this quiet – would certainly make playing more relaxing and carefree.

Alia is a rechargeable toy that requires charging via AV power (not USB) before first time usage can take place. Mine only took 30mins. A full charge normally takes around 2hrs and will deliver up to 4hrs of pleasure. When the vibrator is plugged in, the LEDs pulse letting you know charging is in progress. The LEDs will emit a steady glow to announce a full charge. Rapid flashing LEDs indicate a low battery. With 6 different vibration levels, there's an intensity choice for everyone. I use the 4th level and find that more than powerful enough. Even on the first level, if you place this vibrator on a flat surface, she will very easily (and quickly) make her way across it.

CLEANING ~ STORAGE ~ PACKAGING:

Because Alia is totally waterproof, there are hours of carefree water fun to be had. Take it in the bath, hot tub or shower. This also makes her extremely easy to wash with anti-bacterial soap, toy cleaner, wipes or even a 10% bleach solution for a more thorough cleaning. If you choose the bleach cleaning, be sure to thoroughly clean off all residue before using it against your delicate areas. This one can't be sterilized in boiling water due to the plastic and the last thing you want to do is cook the motor.

Take care not to get excess soap or water in the charging port. The port in the bottom has a slight indent which I believe causes a seal and prevents the water actually entering when submerged. I have submerged this toy so others can be rest assured it's safe to do so. Please make sure to allow the port to thoroughly dry (just in case) before charging her again. Better to be safe than sorry!

This toy arrived in a cardboard box with basic information. Inside Alia is neatly packaged surrounded by foam in a discreet (has "LELO" on the top written in black) firm rectangle black box. The toy and a gold plated ABS brooch (in the same shape as the buttons on the vibrator) occupy half of the box, while the charger takes up the rest of the space underneath a flap. Beneath this area, is the warranty, guarantee, user manual and satin storage pouch. LELO gives a worry free one year warranty, with ten years guarantee which means if your toy dies within this time, you simply send it back to the company and receive 50% on your next purchase from their website. I personally like the neat box as it houses the charger and toy together without taking up that much extra unnecessary space. I use the pouch for another toy who was unlucky to be sold without any storage luxury.

USE:

Alia excites the clitoral, vaginal entrance, anus, nipples and any other erogenous zones you enjoy stimulating. This even works for guys who crave vibrations to heighten excitement in various areas. Keep this to yourself for solo delights or share with someone special during intercourse.

EXPERIENCE:

I'm in love – pure and simple! The Alia has taken over my love affair with BTC and Legamento. She is just so simple, attractive in design, yet pumps out the vibrations I desire. Looks often are deceiving but with this you get external and internal beauty. Not only does her unique look make ownership such a pleasure, but not having to worry about batteries is a major plus. I extremely recommend this toy and thoroughly glad I decided to go ahead with buying this one. I'm so impressed I have invested in more LELO products and will definitely be adding more. You have a great thing going here LELO – keep up the great work!!!

I proudly rate Alia 5 very full stars!
Follow-up commentary
Like is a total understatement! I LOVE this vibrator. The charge certainly lasts me quite awhile.
I really can't brag about this one any more than I did in my review - everyone ought to be priviledged enough to have this one in their toy collection.
If cost permits, I recommend getting this one!
