Liv me tender, Liv me true.

All in all I give this an 8.5 out of 10. I still prefer the shape of the Gigi, but this is still an excellent toy - every bit of quality I have come to expect from Lelo products. I think it really depends on your anatomy and personal preference as to which shape would suit you better. I still get use from mine since it works well for external stimulation as well. It is a multi-functional vibe that you can enjoy in a number of ways.
Rechargeable, great for beginners and experienced alike, body-friendly silicone
A bit small, pricey

extremely useful review


I've wanted to compare this product to it's sister Gigi for a while now. Many of the features and functions are the same, the main difference is the shape. If you are of smaller build or have a more shallow G-spot, this is the vibe for you. While the Gigi has a more pronounced ridge, this has a smoother design and is great for those who don't need size to satisfy them or may find the shape of Gigi to be irritating and catch on their pubic bone. The vibrations work wonderfully internally as well for clitoral stimulation, nipples, basically any erogenous zones on your body you enjoy the feeling of vibrations on.

A multi-purpose vibe is a great addition to any toy collection, and with Lelo you get top of the line every time. The only thing I do not recommend this toy for is anal play, but the Billy model is designed for that and is very similar in shape and function. Note that it is not waterproof so keep it out of the shower/tub/pool.

Material / Texture

The material is a silky smooth silicone covering over hard plastic. I have the green one and love the bright color; it's nice to see toys offered in colors other than pink or purple for once. The silicone attracts a bit of lint, but is otherwise wonderful. No smell, no unpleasant taste. The size is not at all intimidating; if you are a beginner this would be an excellent choice for a top-of-the-line vibe to try out. The texture itself does not add any additional stimulation, but the vibrations are nice and have multiple settings and speed functions. The controls are easy to figure out and come with instructions. It is not very flexible, but I find the rigidity useful for G-spot stimulation so it hasn't been a problem for me.
    • No odor
    • Not porous at all

Design / Shape / Size

Overall, I like this design but I personally prefer the Gigi a bit more. The shape works well but it is softer and smoother. If you have a prominent pelvic bone this shape would better suit your anatomy. The size is great for beginners; it isn't intimidating at all in my opinion. Size queens might want to look elsewhere, though, as you may find it a bit lacking. The toy is not particularly discreet but could pass off as a neck massager. It is suitable for travel and rechargeable. The charger looks just like a cellphone charger and is discreet.

Functions / Performance / Controls

The functions of this toy are excellent. The vibrations are located throughout the silicone shaft and work externally as well as internally. Sometimes the controls can be a bit tricky to use as things get slippery, but the buttons are easy to manage. The vibrations range from soft and steady to quite powerful for its size and being a re-chargeable toy. The charge also lasts a long time. It will flash red when you need to plug it in and by pressing down on the control pad you can lock the settings so they don't turn on by themselves during storage.

The only downside I've found is that you have to cycle through all of the different settings backwards to get to the first one again. It has a steady vibration, three speeds of pulse, and roller-coaster, all of which can be adjusted in intensity. It is not very noisy - I've tested it under the covers and behind a closed door on the highest vibrations. You can't hear it at all behind a closed door unless you have very thin walls and under covers it sounds like a cellphone. It is not waterproof and has a covering over the charge port to keep water out when cleaning, but I am still careful not to submerge it.
    • Long lasting power
    • Lots of variety in function
    • Multiple settings

Care and Maintenance

Liv is very easy to care for. A spritz of toy cleaner on the silicone covering for a quick cleaning works nicely. Wash with warm water and soap as needed as well, but be careful to keep any water from entering the charge port since it is not a waterproof toy. Since it is silicone, you can't use silicone lubes, but any other lube is fine. I store the toy in the satin pouch and hard cardboard box that were provided. The box makes for nice storage and has an indent with the shape of the toy. I use the satin pouch to keep it from collecting lint. I recommend rinsing it down to clean off lint rather than using a toy cleaner, but otherwise a toy cleaner works just fine for before and after usage if you can't or don't feel like going to the sink right away to clean it up. It is not porous so no worries there; it can be shared with a partner as long as you clean it between uses.
    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store


The packaging was excellent; it came in a nice black box with a removable hardshell storage indent and a satin pouch. The charger was in the box underneath the vibe and can be kept there for storage as well. Beautiful presentation - I feel like Lelo is the Apple of sex toys. The packaging reminded me of an iPod a bit with the nice sturdy box. Over the box it had a paper sleeve with a picture of the toy showing the model, brand, and color inside. The black box is embossed with "Lelo" on the top of the lid. Due to the covering over it, the box itself it is not very discreet, but that could be removed. If wrapped as a gift it could be fairly discreet since it is in a nice rectangular-shaped box.
    • Discreet looking packaging
    • Good for storage
    • Would make a nice gift

Personal comments

I like this toy, but in the end I still prefer the Gigi. This is a great option for those that are more sensitive or have a prominent pubic bone, though. Gigi has a more intense shape and can be irritating during thrusting, while Liv goes much more smoothly. The charge life is fantastic; once fully charged you can get several hour long sessions out of it before needing to charge it again. You cannot, however, use it while it is plugged in, but it charges fairly fast. I like that it flashes red when needing to be charged, you don't end up disappointed with the vibrations slowing down since it gives you adequate warning when it is running out of juice.
Follow-up commentary
Unfortunately, Liv just doesn't do it for me. I reach for Gigi far more often since I prefer the shape. The size and shape isn't quite what I had imagined. It’s too small for me. If you like smaller toys or are a beginner, this would be fantastic. The quality is wonderful, and the vibrations are nice. I just don't get as much use from it as I should be for it being a luxury toy. I see no point in owning both Liv and Gigi.

The color is awesome though, I wish more Lelo toys came in this shade of green.

    So if it was larger, it would be perfect for you?
    Thanks for the great review.

    I wish it was larger. I've been wanting this for over a year, but I always find something else I want more. I hope I enjoy this as much as you did.
  • Contributor: meezerosity
    @ Jimbo Jones - Yes I think if it were a bit larger it would have been perfect. I'm curious to try the Mona too but I don't know if I can justify three toys so similar from the same company.
