Holy cow what is that noise? Infra-really loud! Review with pics!

I wanted a massager that could be used by everyone who comes over. This a great all around body massager, I high recommend it. It is really rather loud, which can be too loud. However it works great, and can really relieve some of that tension you have built up.

Use

Infrared Electric massager; by California Exotic Novelties; intended use should be as and actual massager. This one could be used as a sex toy, however is bulky. Also out of the 5 attachments only one seems like it would be okay for clitoral stimulation. This can be used by yourself or you can use it on some one else. There are two functions this baby can do, one is vibrate and the other is heat. These functions are controlled at the same time; you can not use one without the other.

Each attachment has its own purpose. In the manual they are broken down as following:

1. All purpose Massager: Gentle massage for large muscle groups.
2. Scalp Massager: Soft fingers stimulates the scalp and massage for back of the neck.
3. Dual Massager: Shiatsu-type fingers for spot massage.
4. Lotion Massager: Apply cream or lotion for gentle facial massage.
5. Spot Massager: Deep massage on muscles to relieve stress.

We used this more for places like bottoms of feet, back, neck, and thighs; we did use this other (non-sexual) places, finding that these were the best places for use. My favorite use was on the bottoms of my feet, using all attachments.

Material / Texture

The massager itself is made of plastic. This plastic is smooth and odor less. The attachments are made of flexible plastic, with the exception of the lotion attachment, this has a foam top. Each attachment has their own texture, to provide different kinds of massages. These attachments are odor less as well.

Plastic has a safety rating of an eight. This is because it is a non porous firm material. This can be easily cleaned. This plastic is food-grade material, hypo-allergenic, latex free, and Phthalates free. So this massager can be enjoyed by all, even those who have allergies.

The textures are appropriate for all users.

Textures:
All purpose-bumpy
Scalp-nubby or spiked
Dual-smooth
Lotion- scratchy
Spot- Smooth
    • No odor
    • Not porous at all

Design / Shape / Size


Infrared Massager is only available in red. This is a shaft with a flexible head. One end of this is a circle, where the infrared heat is on one side and the attachment post is on the other side. The other end is the over 6ft black cord. When the infrared heat is in use, this side has a light that lights up during use. On the shaft is where the slider switch is located.

The shaft is 12 ¼” long, making this easy to use yourself. This weights 1.5lb, however does not feel heavy on your hands.



The Spot massager attachment is a cone that has a rounded top. On the bottom is a hole, this is to attach it to the shaft. This cone stands almost 2” high and is 2 ½” in circumference (about 1 ¼ diameter.)



The lotion massager attachment is a round disc with a foam top. On the back of this is the post for attachment. This stands about 1” high and is about 2 ½” in circumference (about 1 ¼” diameter.)



The dual massager attachment is an oval shape with two cones. On the backside is the post for attaching. This one stands 2”tall and has a 3” circumference (1 ½ diameter.)



The Scalp massager attachment is a round disc with 44 spiked nubs. This stands about 1” tall and has 3 ¼ circumference (about 1.5 diameter; just a hair more.)



The final attachment is the all purpose massager. This is a round disc with 7 circular larger nubs. This attachment stands about 2” tall and 2 ¾” in circumference (1.5 diameter; just a hair shy.)

Functions / Performance / Controls

Over all performance is great. I am very pleased with this massager. I do find this is really rather loud; no hiding this sound, even with the TV on. Almost reminds me of the sound of my husband’s electric razor. As far as the Infrared heat, I do not even notice any heat. This is not discreet at all, everyone would assume this is a back massager.



The controls are easy to use. There is a switch located on the shaft; you slide this up once for low vibrations and high heat. Then you can slide it up one more time for high vibrations and low heat. I am not sure why they would put them both on one control. I would like to be able to use each separate. This toy is not water proof, so do not try to take this in the shower with you, puts you at risk of being stocked. This is powered by 110 volt power cord. Each attachment performs differently.

The scalp massager attachment tickles the scalp. This can be used with your hair up or down, without tangling your hair. I would avoid using this on high; you may just get a headache.

The dual massager attachment is good for places like hands and feet. This attachment on low is hard to feel in certain areas.



The lotion massager attachment is my favorite. This on both high and low, I find to intense for the face. It tickles and vibrates too much, making me sneeze. However I have eczema, so I need to apply lotion all the time, I find this works great for this. I use it all over my body. The problem with this one is the foam collects lotion. Then it begins to smell like your lotion. This makes it so you will only want to use the same lotion all the time.

The all purpose massager attachment is good for all areas of the body. I find that on the low setting, it is hard to feel in certain areas. I find the best place for this one is your back.

The spot massager attachment is the only attachment I can see used for clitoral stimulation. This attachment was not used by me, for this use, so I can not say for sure. This attachment is good for places like calves and lower back. Where ever you want a pin point pressure massage, this is the attachment to use. When this one is on low it is hard to feel also.
    • Multiple settings
    • Not discreet at all
    • Powerful

Care and Maintenance

Instructions say:

1. To clean the massager use a damp cloth only. Do not use any strong chemical cleaner.
2. Do not immerse the product into water when cleaning.
3. If massager is damaged or does not operate properly, it must be examined and repaired by the manufacturer or its service agent of a similarly qualified person in order to avoid a hazard.
4. Do not allow the power cord to be excessively pulled or twisted and wrapped the cord around appliance.
5. Always store your massager in its box or in a dry place.

I have currently been cleaning this with baby wipes. Except the lotion attachment, this needs to be scraped off. I use my finger nails to do this. As for storing, I have been using the packaging; this is too bulky for all my other containers. This massager is compatible with all your favorite lubes, and the lotion attachment can be used with any lotion or cream.
    • Difficult to store
    • Easy to clean

Packaging




This massager comes packaged in a clear plastic shell, with a paper insert. This clear plastic shell has a place for everything. This is rather bulky and not great for storage; okay for temporary storage. This is not discreet since it is clear and would not make a good gift package. So wrap this baby up, if gifting out. This does come with an instruction booklet. This contains warnings, operating instructions, maintenance and cleaning, and a diagram. This diagram also explains the attachments. The card broad insert has images of the massager and attachments, however is not at all useful.

Personal comments

I would like to say that if you purchase this be sure to read warnings first. I remember reading that you should not use this under covers. This could cause this to over heat, and may cause fire. Read the instruction manual!
Follow-up commentary
The infrared massager does not get used often because it is so loud. We do still like it though. The sound is just a major turn off for us. The only head that really gets used is the spot attachment. It has not showed any signs of damage either.
