Pristine

Traditional vibrator by

Add resource

Pretty and purple, yes. Pristine, not so much.

Worth a try. Love the thickness and the slightly ribbed shape. Quiet vibrations with okay intensity. Best for deep internal vibrations. Appearance might fade. Wiring may have some faults.

Use

Against the clit, the vibrations are a bit weakened by the TPR material, and using the tip for pin-point stimulation provides a weaker intensity because the TPR is thicker there. If you need firm pressure on your clit, the material squishes a bit. This make it more comfortable, but less effective at transferring the vibrations.

The large internal bullet feels really nice deep inside. If you like internal vibrations, this toy is for you. I could feel the vibrations on my cervix, down through the shaft to my opening, and through my rear vaginal wall deep into my ass. Very interesting sensations all around!

If you cannot handle the full length, the shaft is bendable. The lower shaft can be placed against your clit if your anatomy allows for it.

It is reliably waterproof, and virtually silent in the shower. Not too loud under the covers. I think you could definitely get away with this in a rooommate situation.

Material / Texture

This is my first TPR toy. So I had a lot to learn here.

I found it to be a bit "draggy" but not necessarily "sticky" like others have mentioned. It does attract lint. This material is really uncomfortable without lube. When brushed against slightly damp skin, it tends to pull and drag a bit.

I have used this with Wet Platinum Silicone lube as well as Sliquid H20 lube, and found better results with the water-based lube. The "draggy" texture can still be a bit irritating with a thin textured lube.

It is somewhat firm, with a bit of give when squeezed, especially towards the center of the shaft, but I would not call it "floppy." This TPR is not as firm as my Tantus Acute silicone dildo, but I would have liked it to be even squishier. I chose TPR for that reason, and was slightly disappointed.

Others have mentioned a smell. I did not experience this with my toy. I washed it when it arrived, but other than the fleeting "new plastic" scent, I don't think it is scented. I also found no taste on this toy.

Design / Shape / Size

The tip is slightly pointed which made insertion easier. If you are new to girth play, you'll appreciate this aspect.

The shaft has two rows of slight ridges that I thought felt great during thrusting. They look like they might not be noticeable, but because of the larger girth, they definitely make for an interesting sensation.

I prefer larger girth toys, and this toy definitely did the trick in filling me up nicely. I'd say if you are new to penetration, go with something thinner, but if you're looking for a cheap and filling toy, try this out for size.

That being said, I cannot seem to insert this toy deeper than the ridges halfway down the shaft, no matter which position I've tried. It's not a matter of the length, but something about the straightness of this toy make it impossible for me.

I hesitate to call this "discreet" but it is definitely pretty, and doesn't look like a fake penis.

Functions / Performance / Controls

The Pristine has 3 levels of vibration. Low, Med, and High. They are located toward the bullet end but can be felt all the way down.

I usually skip the first two speeds because the material dampens the vibration, despite having such a big bullet. Once I've orgasmed and become more sensitive, then the lower two vibrations are pretty decent. I would rate them 1, 2, then 3 vrooms, and 1, 1, and 3 bees.

The vibrations are controlled by a push button at the very end of the toy. I've never had issues accidentally pressing it. There is no easy-off button, you must cycle through to turn it off.

I usually use this toy in the shower with no issues with the water-tight seal.

    • Easy to use

Care and Maintenance

This toy is waterproof. I've cleaned it with toy wipes, baby wipes, and hot water with antibacterial soap. So far, good results with all these methods. Definitely clean this before and after each use, because at the very least, you'll have to remove the lint stuck on it. If the lint issue really bothers you, blasting it with the cool setting on a blow dryer can be an alternative to a towel.

I've used water based lube, silicone lube, and relied on my own lubrication a few times. This material definitely needs additional lubricant, and is safe with all types.

This can't be boiled or completely sterilized, so keep that in mind if you plan to share with a friend.

Definitely keep the box, it can be used to store the toy and so much more!

Packaging

I love Evolved packaging! This metal box with hard lid can be used for storage or for holding other supplies like lubes, condoms, pencils, etc. I wouldn't hesitate to give this as a gift unwrapped. Maybe add a bow to finish it off, but the box is so pretty by itself.

An important note if you are bothered by small details... The lid of the box does touch the toy when it sits in the inner plastic form. The lid seemed to rub the toy, so now there is a slightly matte area on the shaft that hasn't gone away. It bothers me, but I don't think there's much you can do about it.
    • Good for storage
    • Would make a nice gift

Personal comments

I forgot to choose a color. I wanted the pink, but the purple is so pretty in person.

The video and the photos make this toy appear to be bright and shiny. After using it once, the toy has turned slightly matte, and no cleaning technique has brought it back to its original shinyness. It is supposedly safe with silicone lube, so I'm not sure why this happened.

I have had this toy for several months. Upon inserting batteries and pressing the button, it does not turn on. I check the batteries, they're inserted correctly, and still nothing. Out of frustration, I gave it a good wack against the bed, and BUZZ! I think the wiring has come a bit loose inside, but it works 99% of the time.

Additionally, when twisting off the battery cap, be sure to close the cap as tightly as possible. Otherwise, the thin TPR that surrounds the battery compartment starts to shift and looks like it may eventually come detached.
Follow-up commentary
Since uploading the original review, I have used Pristine less and less.

The Low and Med settings stopped working, and the High setting only works part of the time. I really think there is something wrong with the wiring. Now when I use this toy, it's just for the dildo aspect. I don't even bother with inserting batteries anymore.

My initial rating of 4 stars was a bit generous, considering all the issues that came with this toy. If the Pristine that I received was without these faults, it would have been a pretty decent purchase.

Ultimately, I have to say that because the Pristine has lost more than half of its function, I don't like it anymore.

    I never thought about holding my pens in their metal containers, so you gave me a new idea. Thank you for sharing.

    Nice review. I have as well had issues with the wiring with Evolved products, they do have a warranty though for 12 months.
