The Mystic Wand Rechargeable is made of completely odorless silicone and plastic. From the looks and feel of it, the outside of the massager seems to be coated in a layer of velvety silicone, from the contours of the massager's head to the flexible plug that protects the charging port when not in use. The handle, neck, and head of the massager are rigid when squeezed, leading me to believe that the interior casing of the massager is plastic. Please note that while pure silicone toys can be boiled for sanitation purposes, an electric toy such as this should not be subjected to such high temperatures, whether in a boiling pot or in a dishwasher. First of all, it is not waterproof. Secondly, the electrical components could be damaged by the heat. For recommendations on cleaning, please see "Care and Maintenance", below.
The silicone exterior is very velvety and pleasant to the touch. It produces very light drag when drawn across skin. A little water based lube may be added if the friction is found to be too much. The top of the approximately cylinder-shaped head is smooth and rounded, while the sides are ridged in a toothed fashion (as opposed to smoother, rounded ribs). These ridges, when rubbed against the clitoris, provide more intense stimulation in addition to the vibrations. The texture is not too intense, and can be enjoyed by all but the most sensitive of sex toy users, whom may prefer to use the smooth area of the vibrating head exclusively.
The shaft or handle of the Mystic Wand Rechargeable should fit comfortably in most hands. It is on the heavier side of average, being only slightly heftier than a traditional vibrator but not so heavy that it causes the wrist to tire after prolonged use, as can be the case with other massagers. The massager is not awkward or chunky in shape, instead looking rather streamlined and cute. It is small and discreet enough to be taken on a weekend getaway. Simply charge it up and go!
The shape of the massager is easily described in three portions. The handle and the head, both already discussed above, and the neck that connects them. The neck of the massager is rather flexible, though not floppy thanks to its plastic skeleton. This feature allows the head to be bent at an angle for maximum accuracy when looking for your magic spot(s) without painfully bending your wrist to compensate for a stiff massager.
The Mystic Wand Rechargeable has two buttons which control six functions. Two lights, one large and one small, reveal the status of the toy. The bottommost button is the power button. A single click turns the vibrator on and automatically starts at the first function. Regardless of vibrational pattern, as long as the massager's power is on, the larger indicator light will glow pink. Another click of the power button turns the massager off, anytime, anywhere. "Emergency off" is a great feature to have on any vibrator when you live with roommates, family, or just want to keep your pleasure a secret to whomever is barging into your room.
The other button, marked with an "F", clicks through the functions when the massager is on. There are a total of six functions, which "F" will cycle through, 1-6, and then start back at the first one again. Unfortunately, it cannot scroll backwards, so if you miss the function you wanted, the quickest way to get back to it is to turn the massager off, then turn it back on again and scroll to the function you wanted from the beginning. The smaller indicator light will change color or flash according to which function it is on. The functions, in order, are:
1. Steady low vibration (light shines green)
2. Steady medium vibration (light shines orange)
3. Steady high vibration (light shines red)
4. Low pulse (flashing--alternates between red and orange)
5. Two quick pulses followed by a longer pulse (two orange flashes followed by a red flash)
6. Escalation from low to high, and repeat (flashing green to orange to red)
The strength of the vibrations spans a decent range. The low vibration is not as subtle as the lowest settings on some other vibrators, but should not be overpowering for those sensitive to vibrations. The highest vibration should also be sufficient for all but those who possess "clits o' steel". These vibrations are deeper and "thuddy", more suited to relaxing massage than "buzzy" surface vibrations. While this type of vibration may not be suitable for all users, it has the benefit of not producing the numbing, overstimulated sensation that "buzzy" vibrations can bring about.
Despite being advertised as virtually silent, I found the sound of the massager to be quite noticeable. On low, it is comparable to a cell phone on vibrate. However, on higher intensities, the noise also rises exponentially. I asked friends sitting on the opposite side of the moderately large living room whether they could hear the massager on low in my hand, and they said that they could hear it clearly. Other users of this massager have reported it as being very quiet, however, so I suspect that it may be an issue with only my massager.
Prior to your first use of the Mystic Wand Recharger, it must be charged. The process is very simple. Simply take the included 110 V charger, plug it in to a power outlet, and then plug the charging end into the charging port, located on the bottom end of the massager. Remember to stopper the charging port with its attached silicone tab when not in use to prevent damage from fluids. While charging, the larger indicator light will slowly flash pink. When the massager is done charging, the flashing will stop. Due to lack of instructions included with the product, I do not know whether overcharging will damage the massager, but have not yet detected any negative affect on the toy from leaving it plugged in for a little longer than necessary. The massager may not be used while being charged. A single charge lasts a long time. I have had my Mystic Wand Rechargeable for a few weeks now, and it is still running fine on its first charge.
The Mystic Wand Rechargeable is not waterproof, so please keep it out of the shower and bath. It should be used with water-based lubrication due to its silicone covering. To clean, warm water and soap should do the trick.
The massager comes with its own drawstring storage pouch, perfect for protecting your massager from everything else in your toy box. Simply wash, dry, and pop into the velvety white pouch until the next time you pull it out for a relaxing massage or sensual playtime.
While the massager comes with instructions, they are very generic and say nothing about the Mystic Wand Rechargeable specifically. There is no information about using the recharger, how long it takes to charge, or how long the charge should be expected to last. This was a bit inconvenient, but by no means a deal breaker.
I am always on the lookout for the next best vibrating apparatus to use on my clit, so this massager was a welcome addition to my collection. I love pulling it out for quickies or for teasing myself before moving onto another toy. Unfortunately, one of my favorite things to do is to pair vibrations on my clit with a filling toy inserted vaginally, and this massager isn't the best choice for this sort of stimulation. The head is quite large and I like to use the edge of it on my clit. This means that the rest of the head is blocking the entrance to my vagina, so it's hard to thrust with a toy without bumping repeatedly into the wand and... let's just say it leads to frustration and sometimes disaster. The Mystic Wand Rechargeable just doesn't like to share with other toys, I guess. For the same reason, we found it not very satisfactory for use during partner sex. On its own, though, this massager is wonderful.
It may seem superficial, but one of the things that made me fall in love with this massager even before I used it for the first time were the lights. The pink and white exterior of the massager paired with blinking pink, green, and red lights are just so festive... it's hard to not love the appearance! Sometimes I charge down the hallway, massager in hand, scaring the cats out of their wits.
