The Luxe rejuvenate is PU coated ABS plastic that is Latex-free, Phthalates-free and Hypo-allergenic. It is very smooth and soft to the touch and feels great against your skin. It has a faint smell when you first open the package but that disappears upon the first wash. It had no taste that I noticed...yes I licked it to check. I think that this would be a great vibe for a beginner as it is unassuming looking and looks very gentle.
It is shaped like a skinny pear, the base fits nicely in the palm of your hand when you are using it. It is 4 1/4" long with an insertable length of 2 1/2". The diameter is 1 1/2". A nice size for travel or to carry with you on an outing.
The vibrations travel evenly throughout the massager. It is powered by 2-AAA batteries and controlled by 2 light up control buttons located on the side of the base. One to turn it off/on and one to control the speeds and functions. It has 7 functions, varying speeds of vibration, escalation and pulses. Something for everyone. It is waterproof and doesn't become slippery when you get it wet in the shower. It is also one of the quietest vibes that I have. You can barely hear it and if you are under covers no one else can hear it.
Cleaning it is easy, I just wash mine with warm water and soap. Be sure to remove the batteries before cleaning and storing it. It is small enough to store just about anywhere. I prefer to keep my toys in the original packing when I can. I'm fixing to have to stop that though, my closet is beginning to look like an adult bookstore. I always use a water-based lube as it is safe for most toys. If you are using a different kind of lube, spot test your toys to make sure that it won't cause damage.
This vibe is perfect for solo play if you want to pay attention to your clit or your g-spot. I started on my clit and then moved on to my g-spot. With all of the different settings it didn't take but a few minutes to drive me over the edge. Job well done California Exotics, you are quickly moving up my favorites list!
