reFRESHingly amazingI think that this toy is pretty great. It's simple, beautiful, effective and really very enjoyable. A great toy for anyone who's just starting out or any expert. It'd be nice to have some patterns on it, but then again the entire point of the Leaf line IS simplicity, so I'm just fine with it.

The Leaf Fresh external vibrator is a really fun toy. It's great for clitoral stimulation and basically anywhere sensitive you would like to stimulate. It is meant for clitoral and labial stimulation though, so that's where it would be best used. This toy is small, you can easily slip it into a pocket or even a coin purse for on-the-go fun. I think just about anybody who enjoys clitoral stimulation and who enjoy a mix of low and high vibrations but not patterns would like this toy. Also, this toy is waterproof!
The material is a body-safe silicone that is phthalate-free and is rated a 10 on the EF safety scale. The texture is velvety with a little bit of drag to the material. I think anybody can use this sort of toy, as the feel of it is pleasurable in every sense of the word. I didn't notice any smell off of the toy right away, but upon sticking it directly under my nose I could smell a sort of "new" scent that I would compare to that of a balloon, but about ten times stronger. The same with the taste--like a balloon but more concentrated. All in all, not bad at all, it's just new. I actually stuck the Fresh inside my pocket absentmindedly and found that it does pick up lint, but I think this was due to the inside of my pocket being that fuzzy "hoodie" material, so it does pick up a little bit of lint. Since it's silicone, it is a non-porous material that is very clean and very safe. Never use silicone lubes with this toy, it will ruin it! The toy is soft but rigid, it's not squishy and it's not sticky.
I thought that the design was great, very artistic and very pretty. If you left it out and someone saw it, no one would think it were a sex toy--it doesn't look like one at all. For all they know it could just be a paperweight or something like that. This toy is rather small, as most all clitoral stimulators are. I can easily hold it in a closed hand, it only takes up about half of my palm, maybe slightly less (then again my hands are kinda big). It's not bad at all especially since the power of the toy is great. The shape makes for about ten different surfaces to use, and depending on how you place the toy, the feel of the vibrations either intensify or get slightly more dull, but the entire thing has great vibes all throughout. The shape of the pointed part is extremely small and quite strong so for those who REALLY want perfect pin-point stimulation this toy will be a necessity. Since it's small, it's super easy to hide--like I said, it fits into any pocket and doesn't even really look like a toy. It's super for travel too since the button can lock. It's also ergonomic, the intended shape is pretty similar to the Bswish Bcurious--like an extension of your finger, though this one is smaller than the Bcurious, about half the length, and much thinner. I found myself using the toy in lots of different ways and positions, all pleasurable.
So this toy is pretty simple, but you do have to remember that it does work differently than other toys. There's only one button, and you push it three times to unlock and turn on, then press and hold until you reach the desired intensity and three quick hits to turn it off again. It's also waterproof. The DC jack at the bottom does not have a cover, the idea is that air pressure will keep it dry. Personally, I still put a finger over the hole, just in case. I'm paranoid like that. The toy's vibrations are really powerful, pretty much everywhere. The motor seems to be in the center and the vibrations echo out throughout the entire toy, the long narrow tip is where they are the most concentrated and is great for pinpointed stimulation. However, if you like broader sensations, trying one of the other curves feels pretty nice too, or simply use the large flat side for duller, more rumbly, slightly less powerful, broader sensations. I also put this to the "sound test": I left it on high speed on my bed without anything on top and stepped out of the room, then closed the door. I couldn't hear it. I opened the door and went on the other side of the bedroom wall and could not hear it there either, so it's very quiet--about 2 bees, but I do think the sound is different from a Lelo product. It's deeper, so it does sound slightly louder than a Lelo during use, but not by very much; you still can't hear it past a closed door. It's also rechargeable and waterproof which is nice, and it has no seams.
This toy is easy: just wash it with warm water and soap or use a toy cleaner that is safe for silicone toys. Never use a silicone-based lube on these either. It came in a nice sturdy cardboard box that has that 'natural' paper look to it, organic-y, it has a magnet clasp to close it as well. And it also came with a little pouch to store it in. It's plenty big enough for both the charger and the toy itself. To me, this box was certainly worth keeping. It's discreet only using the words 'natural pleasure' on it with an outline of the toy on the back (and it's small). I doubt anyone who didn't already know what it was would be able to figure it out unless they read every single word and has a dirty mind. Personally, I keep the charger and information booklet in the box and keep the toy in the baggy in my nightstand for easy access.
I sort of described this already, but the box is a brown natural-looking cardboard, its pretty durable and silky, with magnets to help keep it closed. The packaging is simplistic and only has labels saying: 'Fresh', 'Leaf', '100% silicone', 'Phthalate free' and 'Natural Pleasure' on it. So I think it's pretty discreet. Only one small outline of the toy is presented on the back with a loose description. inside, is the brown canvas baggy, inside the toy is in a clear plastic baggy declaring NO Silicone Products should be used with it. And the charger is underneath, also in a plastic baggy. Overall, it's a pretty Organic-themed packaging that I like a lot.
