Una Isla BonitaIsla is a beautiful vibrator from Lelo. It is the perfect size and shape for nice g-spot stimulation and the vibrations are deep and pretty strong. As part of the Insignia line, it is also water proof and screams "luxury sex toy" as soon as you look at it.
The bulge that makes up the "head" of the shaft, works for some nice g-spot stimulation. It hits mine every time I use it, but it is not in an intense way like the G-ki or Pure Wand. Even though it does not provide as intense g-spot stimulation as other toys, it is still highly pleasurable.
The Isla is a total of 8.5 inches in length, and 5.5 of those are insertable. It is a length that allows you to reach all the spots you want. When not focused on my g-spot, I like it when it is fully inserted. The diameter of the shaft is 1.38 inches at the widest point, that being the head and the rest of of the shaft is closer to and 1 1/8 inches in diameter. Isla won't make you feel full, but I think that it is a good size considering it is so firm. I think everyone can easily accommodate Isla, but it may require a little warm up.
When I opened the box and took Isla out the first thing I thought was how light it felt. This makes it easy to use for long periods of time without your arms getting tired.
To turn Isla off, simply hold the - button. I read in another review that someone had difficulty telling when one of the vibes from this new line was all the way off because the first pattern is so low and I have to say that I feel the same way. To prevent myself from accidentally leaving it on and draining the battery, I lock Isla after I use her by holding the + and - button down at the same time for about 5 seconds. The same thing is done to unlock it.
As I mentioned, the vibrations are nice and deep and can get pretty strong on the higher settings. The vibrations can be felt strongest in the tip, but travel well through the entire shaft. I was happy that although I can kind of feel the vibrations in the handle that they were not so strong that my hands went numb. I enjoy the lower settings for warm up and then use the higher settings for when I'm closer to orgasm. I find that on the highest and second highest setting, I get nice g-spot stimulation and don't have to move Isla for it to feel really good! It is always a plus when a vibe can do that for me. When on the highest setting and outside of the body this can be heard a little bit through the covers, but not a closed door. Once inside of the body, even at the highest level, it is hard to hear Isla. I like quiet vibes, even though I live alone, so this is a good thing.
The Insignia line is advertised as being waterproof. The only reason I am skeptical about submerging this one is because the instructions say not to get water in the charging port. One thing that has decreased my anxiety about this is the fact that the hole is covered in silicone and isn't open. It is like the charging plug has to push through in order for it to open up. I have used it in the shower with no problems.
A full charge takes about 2 hours and is supposed to last for 4 hours. I have not run it out completely yet, as I like to charge my toys before I think they will run out (so they don't die out on me in use) so I am not sure the exact amount of time it holds a charge. The light blinks when it is charging and then glows steady when it is done.
I like my pretty Lelo box, so I keep Isla in there, but I can see that as my collection is quickly growing, I will have to move her to the satin bag that is included so I can have more room.
Silicone toys should be used with water based lubes only. Isla was way too expensive for me to even consider spot testing, so I will stick to my Maximus lubricant.
I really like Lelo packaging and think it would make a great gift. If discretion is needed, then maybe removing the outer cardboard box prior to giving this to someone might be best.
