This little eggy-wegg is definitely staying in my basket.

I feel that this is a very nice massager, especially since it is so discreet and can even go into the shower, tub, and pool with you. Even though I feel it could use a couple more vibration settings, it's still a good, high quality product (and I absolutely love the mood-light!)
Published:
Pros:
Very pretty mood-light, 100% waterproof, floats, *very* discreet, nice egg-shaped design, soothing
Cons:
Only one vibration setting, vibrations are sort of 'buzzy' and will not make for a deep massage

extremely useful review
The Luminescence is a very nice product for just about anyone looking to give themselves or their significant other a soothing massage, whether in the bed, shower, bath, hot tub, or pool.

It is somewhat egg-shaped with three nubbed feet on the bottom and the power button in the middle. Mine came in the color 'smoke', a light, gray color. I've looked around and I've also found that it is also made in pink and purple as well.

This product is *very* discreet, not only in sound, but also in design. It's the kind of massager that you could leave on your nightstand, or just about anywhere, and it will not offend anyone. The packaging is also G rated. The Luminescence comes in a clear box with a very nice water design, a "front window" so that you can see it, and pictures of the product itself showing some of the colors from the Mood-Light. This also makes it a great gift as well, you could give it to pretty much anyone and no one would know that it's from the same company that makes sex toys. To me, it honestly looks like something you'd get in the Discovery Channel Stores when they were around in malls and such, since they sold a lot of massaging products with similar features to this.

It is made of ABS Plastic and is 3 1/2 inches tall and just over 7 1/2 inches in circumference at it's widest point. The plastic seems pretty sturdy and as far as I can tell, of good quality. It can be cleaned with hot water and soap, or an alcohol dipped cotton ball. The Luminescence is compatible with water, oil, and silicone based lubricants, meaning that it will be perfectly safe if you decide to use them for massaging. There is a white "O" ring where the two halves connect, which makes this product 100% waterproof; though the package did say this outright, I decided to test for myself. After letting it go for a 30 minute swim, lo and behold, not a single drop of water was inside this product! Not only that, but it also floats in water, *and* glows different, pretty colors. I will say that when screwing the top back onto the bottom of the massager, please be aware of the threads. Sometimes, especially in low lighting, it can be hard to see them and if not screwed back on correctly, could damage the threads, or even the toy itself if you're about to go into the water with it, as it could make for an incomplete seal.

It's very easy to use, if you push the white button on the bottom once, just the mood-light will turn on. Pushing the button for 4 seconds will cause the vibrations to come on as well (and the light too if it's not already on). This product only has one set speed, which may be a put-off for some. While I don't mind it too much, I do agree that multiple speeds/intensities would have been very nice to have in a product intended for massages, and I feel would have made this product even better. The vibrations are concentrated in the base, where the motor is, but carries well throughout the toy. This means that there is no one prescribed way to use the product in massages, but more on that in a bit in the Experience section.

It is for external use only, so it can not only be used for massaging the back or feet, but also on the clitoris, the penis, and other places, so long as it doesn't involve taking a wee little trip inside the human body, of course.
Experience
This is the first product I've owned that is made for actually giving someone a massage and I personally love it. Before I got this to review, I would give Synthetic massages with just my hands, but I think from now on whenever I give him one, I'll be reaching for this little egg-shaped friend.

When I tested this on Synthetik, and he in turn tested it on me, as a sort of "After-sex massage", he and I both agreed that when using it (as we assume is intended) so that the bottom 'nubs' were massaging the skin, it just kind of tickled. So I tried it other ways on him and what felt the best of all to both of us was when the massager was rolled on it's side along our backs with a little bit of pressure, and the vibrations going.

We both agree that, while it was very soothing and actually almost put each other to sleep, lol, the vibrations are sort of 'buzzy'. This could be another downside for some, as many may want a massager that will have deeper vibrations. It's not going to give you a very deep massage, but it's feels very nice regardless.

As far as using it for more 'nefarious purposes' (aka: on the genitals), I did try using it by myself on my clitoris, however, it's just not really something I particularly cared for. I think that I personally need "non-buzzy" vibrations there for any sort of 'fireworks' to happen (I didn't even get to 'firecracker' level with this). Not only that, but when testing this so that the nubs were stimulating me, when I tried to push it against myself, the nubs poked me uncomfortably and kind of hurt actually. So I have designated it as just a massager for pretty much anywhere that isn't "down there". Other people may enjoy it being used on their genitals, but I, however, did not.

    I wonder why they call it 'metal' if it's plastic. It's a neat looking toy though.
