Mini pearlessence - traditional vibrator by Cal Exotics - review by vhoskins

Gets "her" done!

I love this toy and will continue to buy this one until I get too old for play time. It is durable, pretty, fun and easy to use. Anybody can enjoy this work of art! It is definitely worth buying, specially since it is at a great cost. Easy and cheap to replace or add more! Even with its one flaw, it is still getting a 5 star rating from me!
Smooth enough for anal or vaginal penetration, comes in several cute colors, easy to hide and use
The battery door and dial knob can wear out in a short time if used excessively.

useful review


Mini pearlessence - It is my most used "toy." I think it is best used for clitoral stimulation rather than vaginal penetration. It has a slender design and is easy to maneuver while in the throws of passion with your partner. Because of its slender design, I find it is easy to insert into the anus for added excitement either with or without your lover. Personally, I own 2 of these. Sometimes while having intercourse with my husband, I use my purple one for clitoral stimulation and he uses the sapphire one on me anally while he is penetrating me. With both of them vibrating and my husband doing his thing, it adds to an exciting level of climax.

Material / Texture

Touch - It feels great anywhere on the skin. Since it is a smooth plastic, it is cold at first until the batteries and your body temperature warm it up. For extra excitement, put it in the freezer for a few minutes to make it colder and be prepared for a wow moment.

Smell - When taken out of the package for the first time, it has that new vibrator smell. After use, well, as long as it is kept clean then there should only be a clean smell to it!

Taste - I never noticed a taste.

Sound - At the highest setting, it can be heard in the next room if the house is quiet. Now after extended use and having it for what seems like a life time, it will get worn out and become noticeably louder.
    • No odor
    • Not porous at all
    • Smooth

Design / Shape / Size

I love the simple design it offers. It isn't big and clunky nor hard to hide. It is just small enough to fit into your purse or travel bag. Its straight design makes it easier to insert anally, vaginally and to hold (or move around) on the clit. It's perfect for those who prefer to get off with clitoral stimulation.
    • Beginner
    • Discreet look/design
    • Ergonomic

Functions / Performance / Controls

The dial control - over time it does wear out and becomes a pain to keep closed after replacing the batteries. After about a year of use, my purple one (it's used the most) sometimes pops the battery cover off and won't operate unless I press down hard on the back of it. Sometimes it goes back to normal and sometimes it doesn't. It isn't a flaw with just this vibrator. It is pretty much all of them that operate with a dial and screws onto the body of the toy.

I have also tried it in the tub a few times and even when the battery lid is being a pain, it still keeps the water out, that is unless the lid pops off.
    • Easy to use
    • Multiple settings
    • Strong patterns

Care and Maintenance

I keep my toy in my underwear drawer, best place I could think of to hide it. It can be stored anywhere there isn't too much heat. Plastic and heat don't get along well, but who would store it in a place that is too hot for it? Because of its smooth build, it is easy to clean. Just use a clean rag and some soap to clean off any love juices left behind and dry well with a towel or dry rag, best not to let it air dry.
    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store


The instructions were easy to understand and easy to read. The package was just like a package for a regular child's toy and can be a pain to open if you don't have a pair of scissors handy. Either that or I am a weakling! Once opened, depending on how you opened it, the package is trash and can be thrown out or burned if you are too embarrassed!
    • Minimal
    • Recyclable
    • Very informative


Experience - This toy can be used by beginners or toy "experts" since it is just a simple and traditional vibrator. All kinds of people who like a little excitement added to their bedroom fun can appreciate this toy's design, style, colors, shape, feel and ease of use!

    Great first review. Keep up the good work.
  • KaraSutra
    Nice review, though I wouldn't suggest a product like this for anal use since it doesn't have a base and may accidentally get lodged inside you. If you can find one like it with a flared base there should be no worries.
  • vhoskins
    Thank you newfoundlust!

    Karasutra, good point, I didn't think about that. I never use it all the way in...just part of the way. Sorry for tmi.

    You guys are great, thanks for the comments...all in all, this is even my first time writing an in depth review on anything, ever! Makes me feel great to know that I did well enough for my first time! Jenyana, I forgot to mention the size, sorry...I will remember to mention that on my next review!

    I'm with Jenyana, the size would help. Great first review!

    It's not too late to modify it. You can still edit your reviews up to a few days after you publish them, so you could still add a little footnote in the "design/sahe/size" section.

    Fabulous review! Thanks for being so thorough!

    Thanks for sharing, but I agree with Karasutra. You should not use any toy without a flared base inside of your anus unless you have a very firm grip on it.
