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

My New Best Friend!

First timers like me will love this sweet little device. It gave me my first orgasm in a matter of minutes! It's such a wonderful and affordable toy that will definitely enlighten any first time users of the many joys of sex toys.
Affordable, Beginner friendly, latex-free, and very cute!
Not very discreet, can get a bit too loud, might not work for the advanced.
Rating by reviewer:
extremely useful review


I found that this toy performs best on my clitoris and nipples. When I inserted it, I could hardly feel the vibrations at all on the max setting. However, I cannot say the same for when I placed it on my clitoris. It gave me my first orgasm in a matter of minutes and I loved every nanosecond of it!

Even though I am currently single, this toy can have quite a few uses for partners. It's small and non-intimidating, so it should be quite fun to use and experiment with it while with your partner.

Material / Texture

The Mini Pearlessence is made from hard plastic, which allows it to be inserted quite smoothly when it is lubricated properly. It has no unpleasant scents or tastes. This mini vibe is made of food-grade material and is hypoallergenic. It also does not contain phthalates and is latex-free, so if you happen to have a latex allergy, such as myself, then you'll be A-Ok with this little device! The smooth surface makes insertion very pleasant for beginners, such as myself, and it packs quite a punch for its small size too. However, I believe that the more advanced sex toy users would prefer something much stronger than this one.

Design / Shape / Size

I absolutely adore the design of the Mini Pearlessence! It's so small and cute, so I wasn't intimidated by it at all. It also has numerous fun colors to choose from, which made me quite happy. It's shaped like a standard traditional vibrator, so don't expect any intricate curves on this little pleasure machine. The pointed tip is excellent for pinpoint precision, which my clitoris appreciated greatly. It is 4 1/2" in length, 3 1/2" insertable with a circumference of 4" and a diameter of 1 1/4". As far as discretion goes, this toy is not very discreet. It can easily be identified as a vibrator, but the beauty of it is that it is small enough to stash away just about anywhere. Due to its portable size, it makes traveling with it extremely simple. It fits nicely in a purse, so it can be with you wherever you go.

Functions / Performance / Controls

This vibe is very simple to assemble and use. It runs off of a single AA battery, but it has some fairly strong vibrations, so do not let it deter you from testing it out. Since the Mini Pearlessence is made of hard plastic, the vibrations travel nicely through the base all the way up to the tip. The control is a dial at the base that can be manipulated with ease. It was quite easy to use one hand to hold the vibrator, while my thumb simply adjusted the dial to different levels of vibrations. The higher you turn the dial, the louder this toy becomes, so do be careful if you are trying to be very discreet while using it. Another important thing to mention is that this toy is not waterproof, so do not submerge it. It is also not safe for anal penetration, so please avoid using it that way.
    • Easy to use
    • Multiple settings
    • Not very discreet

Care and Maintenance

It is very easy to clean and maintain this toy. It can be cleansed with anti-bacterial soap and warm water, or simply use your favorite toy cleanser to get the job done. I tried both methods of cleansing and it worked quite well either way. I have a storage chest where I keep my toys,and it doesn't interact with anything else within the box either. I simply clean it before and after each use, which I would highly recommend everyone do.

This toy literally has nothing to hide. It came in a clear package that was easily opened by separating the top portion of the container. There were no instructions included with the toy, but the package did show some of the toy's features printed on it. I wouldn't recommend giving it to someone as a gift without concealing it somehow, or else you may get some interesting reactions from the gift receiver.

Personal comments

I am a sex toy virgin and very sexually inexperienced, so I was very cautious about what toy I wanted to try first and this one stood out. It came in so many vibrant colors, it was petite, and very inexpensive. I love this toy and I am grateful to it for granting me my first orgasm. I am sure that as time goes on I'll graduate up to more powerful toys with heavier vibrations, but for the time being, this toy can satisfy me without any disappointments.


Once I had my first orgasm with this toy, I kept going and going and had multiple orgasms! It produced results that I could have never foreseen. Ever since it arrived in the mail I've used it constantly and it performs just as well as it did the first night I used it. This toy earned a wonderful place in my heart and I will always cherish it for enlightening me to the joys of sex toys.

I have yet to really do much insertion with this toy, but as time goes on, I will definitely explore it in more ways.
Follow-up commentary
This vibe will always have a special place in my heart... just not my toy box anymore. It was my very first sex toy and it served its purpose. It gave me very nice orgasms, but now, my body needs something much stronger than the Mini Pearlessence to get to that oh so special place. However, I still would recommend this for a first-timer since it is very simple to use, clean and store.

    I know this is an old review, but I wanted to drop in and say if you're still fairly new to toys you may want to try something curved for insertion. Once I did, I never was quite as interested in straight toys for anything other than the clit!
  • LadyDarknezz
    @Jesss: Thank you for checking out my review and the custom graphic is so cute!

    @MissMori: I am definitely still new to toys. I'm currently looking for beginner g-spot vibrators that aren't to thick since I still have some issues with insertion. It's getting better, thanks to this toy helping me loosen up a bit, quite literally! Thank you for the suggestion!
