Too Much Hype, Not Enough Delivery

Gigi is a good toy, it's rechargable, it's curved well, but it will never be my toy of choice. As a warm-up/foreplay toy, Gigi can't be beat, but as the main course? Gigi will remain an appetizer. The vibrations are too weak, and its body too short to be entirely functional as my toy du jour.
Published:
Pros:
Great color, good shape, lots of speeds and vibration styles.
Cons:
Weak vibrations, too easy to change vibration speed/style while using it.

Use

The Gigi is marketed as a G-Spot vibrator, but as I usually have difficulty hitting my own G-Spot, I went for the clitoral approach first. I thought that the flattened tip of the head would be a perfect match for my body, but maybe I should have stuck with G-Spot penetration as Gigi's first ride.

I was incredibly underwhelmed with the vibrations produced by the Gigi. Having read other reviews before I purchased my own, knowing that I prefer strong vibrations, I anticipated a vibrator that would make my knees quiver before I even took off my pants. The vibrations are there, with Gigi, but are nothing that makes my eyes pop open. I have to keep the Gigi on its highest setting to even find it remotely useful, and that means all of the other vibration styles were useless for me. I would have preferred stronger vibrations with the same intensity scale, so that as well as meeting my needs, it could be scaled down to people who prefer softer vibrations.

So I moved on to G-Spot stimulation. Fortunately, my G-Spot is shallow, so Gigi did hit it while it was being used on me. However, if I had the vibrations on while I was using it on myself, even clitorally, my fingers almost always accidentally hit the control pad, changing the vibration style or turning it off altogether. I was unable to hit my own G-Spot while using Gigi, but I won't fault the toy for that; it might just have been a pilot error.

Because the plastic of the handle is smooth, it is very difficult to handle when wet, and especially difficult when it is lubricated.

Material / Texture

I love silicone, because I'm a germaphobe and I'm entirely too obsessed with cleanliness. Fortunately Gigi is pure silicone, which means it's nonprorous, latex free, odorless, tasteless and (my favorite) completely sterilizable!

The insertable portion of Gigi is velvet-soft, a very pleasant texture, while the handle is smooth plastic.

Design / Shape / Size

Gigi has a slight curve to it, like an open parenthesis, which makes it much easier to use clitorally or vaginally than a straight vibrator.

I found it a little short to be really useful, either for solo or partner play; the insertable portion is a little short for my taste, but that would be okay if the handle was longer. Because it was so difficult to get a grip on the toy and hold it, g-spot attempts became frustrating.

On a completely superficial note, Gigi's colour is to die for--a beautiful turquoise that I wish I could match my outfit to.

Functions / Performance / Controls

It does have 7 speeds, as well as 5 different patterns of vibration (continuous vibration; slow, medium, and fast pulses, and rollercoaster, which cycles through from slow to fast) so if you don't need strong vibrations, this might be a great toy for you.

Also, given my issues with hitting the speed/vibration button while in use, I wish there was a way to lock the speed in place, so that I could use it without shutting it off.

It's not really noisy, a gentle hum at most, which will be great for people in cramped quarters or people who like to watch movies while using Gigi.

Gigi's product information says that an hour and a half of charging will provide you with 2 hours of play, but even with her on her highest speed, I got over four hours of use out of her--and Gigi is rechargeable, which is both economically and financially beneficial.

Gigi's "charge me now" sign is the control pad, which will turn red when it's time to recharge, and is otherwise white. Keeping her charging in for over 24 hours is strongly discouraged.

Care and Maintenance

Silicone is really easy to care for; it's sterilizable but the Gigi is not waterproof, so do NOT throw her in the dishwasher! Water-based lubricants are best, as other kinds may break down the silicone insertable portion.

Gigi comes with a white satin pouch, which is where I usually store her, though for traveling, her handsome box is where I prefer to put her.

Packaging

This was probably the most classy, attractive packaging of a toy I have ever seen. It comes inside a Gigi colored box that reminded me of a piece of Tiffany's jewelry, and then inside an attractive black box that held the Gigi. It comes with an instruction manual.

Personal comments

It's a beautiful toy, but it just did not do it for me. However, my partner really enjoyed it for clitoral stimulation, so others may enjoy it more than I did.
Follow-up commentary
When I first tried out Gigi, I was a little unimpressed--to say the least. However, I've found that as a quick and dirty toy strictly for penetration, she's not half bad. I don't use the vibrations, which sadly have still not started to do anything for me, but the curved shape makes penetration easy, even when another toy is stimulating me clitorally.

I'm surprised that it remained in my bedside toy box, but not upset!

    Nice review! Too bad this didn't work out for you.

    Thanks! It's a really nice toy, but it's just not for me. My partner liked it so she'll probably get custody of it, proving that what works for some doesn't always work for all!

    Too bad it doesn't work for you. For me, the higher speeds are overwhelming...we can be so different. Good review!

    Sorry this didn't work for you.

    Just to let you know though, you were talking about how you wish there was a lock button - there is. You hold down the control panel and it flashes. You're locked. I know what you mean about sometimes changing the settings. I always lock before I start playing.

    Jon--how do you lock it while it's in use?! I've tried a few times, and every time I use the lock feature while it's turned on, it turns straight off!

    Thanks everyone. It's okay that it wasn't for me, because it's a beautiful vibe that works well as a warmup.

    It's a shame this didn't work out for you, I've been thinking about buying it myself for a while now.

    Well, I must admit that I warmed up to it more after using it more often. It's still not my go-to toy, and I think there are better g-spot toys, but it's not as bad as I originally thought.

    I'm glad you liked her more with time. That's a lot of money to potentially waste.

    Thanks for the follow up. Sounds like the good thing about Gigi is that its shape is reminiscent of Ella. Ella is a great dildo.

    I keep going back and forward on this one! I love this colour and that it's a Lelo, but the tiny girth concerns me. I'd love it if they made it in a few girth sizes.

    Nice review
