Insignia Alia - discreet vibrator by LELO - review by MGDavicnigirl

Alia for all over body stimulation.

I bought this toy expecting a high powered, rechargeable, and waterproof clit toy. I am disappointed that it couldn't satisfy my clit, but I am happy that I found a toy to tease other sensual areas of my body.
Lots of patterns, Comfortable to hold, sleek and sexy looking, comes in black
Doesn't stay charged for long, not very powerful, hard to pinpoint vibrations to clit or other areas
Rating by reviewer:
useful review


The Alia is a sexy, smooth, velvety, and sleek vibrator. From the moment you take it out of the packaging, the luxurious feel is there. The Alia is waterproof and rechargeable, which is a near must for all of my toys of this price range and higher. You can lock the Alia from turning on, so you don't get any unexpected surprises happening in your suitcase.

The Alia would satisfy the average user for a clit vibe. If you are looking for something with some ooomph, this might not be the right toy. With that said, I have found my appreciation for this little gem in other ways. The patterns on this thing are amazing and perfect for teasing. I like to use it alone or with a partner to tease my anus, nipples, and outer labia. This toy would be a fantastic add-on to an erotic massage leading up to something more.

Material / Texture

The texture of this toy is a turn on from the minute your fingers go over the smooth and velvety curves. The coating isn't particularly soft or hard, but it is grippy and glides over a wet nipple or clit. At first, I was disappointed with the plastic sliver piece. After trying it out, I realized it was really well thought out. The velvety coating on the Alia makes it easy to hold onto and feels great on my skin all over my body. The Alia has no plastic or rubber smell to it, which is a big plus.
    • No odor
    • Smooth

Design / Shape / Size

Because of the width of the curve, the Alia isn't very well suited for pinpoint stimulation. The toy doesn't slide out of your hand, and it is easy to hold onto with the opening right in the middle. The toy doesn't really look like a toy, but it isn't that difficult to figure out what it is upon closer inspection. The Alia is sleek and discrete making it easy to hide nearly anywhere.

Functions / Performance / Controls

I've used this toy in the shower with a partner, and it was amazing! It got me wet in no time with the vibrations over my sensitive nipples and anus. It's hard to pick a favorite, but there is a unique rolling sort of pattern that feels almost like someone is licking you. The patterns on this thing will make sure you don't get bored. The buttons are not easily pushed in, so no accidental changing up the speed or pattern right before you orgasm! The buttons light up for easy display in the dark, but they aren't bright. They provide just enough of a glow that you know what button you are pushing.

The Alia is super quiet. If you have a roommate, they will have no idea this thing is on. The patterns of the vibrations combined with its quietness are the two biggest selling points to this toy. The motor doesn't seem as powerful for a toy of this quality and caliber. The vibrations are spread over a broad area making pinpoint stimulation difficult if not impossible.
    • Discreet sound
    • Lots of variety in function
    • Rechargeable

Care and Maintenance

The toy comes with a sexy satin pouch to store it in. You can wash it with toy cleaner or even hot soapy water. Water based lube is a definite must with Alia!
    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store


The packaging is sexy and sleek, and I wouldn't expect anything less from Lelo. This bad boy is packed in a crisp black box. It comes with a brooch, satin pouch for storage, rechargeable cord, and a little instruction booklet with one year warranty information.
    • Discreet looking packaging
    • Good for storage
    • Minimal
Follow-up commentary
I haven't touched this toy in months. The end of the power cord (where you plug it into the toy) got bent when it wouldn't easily come out of the toy. The cord is now extremely difficult to insert.

The toy is so sleek and pretty it's a real disappointment that it can't bring me to orgasm.
