Not what I was expecting

When I first laid eyes on the Decadence Ripples, I was really excited. The ripples looked really fun. However, when I had the opportunity to give it a test run, I realized I had set my expectations a bit too high.
Twist-dial, easy to clean, smooth material, very portable, waterproof, comes with its own case.
Hard to use the twist dial if you accidentally get lube on it.

I guess I’ll start this review with a note about the packaging—easiest packaging to open, ever! Easier than opening a package of Pringles, if I do say so myself. (Weird comparison, I know. Sorry!) This is a pretty little vibrator, that even comes with its own storage case. I was actually surprised with how well the storage case keeps the Decadence Ripples secured. I can shake the case all I want and not hear one rattle from it. Keep in mind that the case is transparent, so anyone can see what’s inside.

The Decadence Ripples is a discrete, smooth plastic (velvet cote) vibrator. I was pleased to see that there were no seams along the ripple part of the vibe. It’s easy to clean with soap and water, rubbing alcohol, or your favorite toy cleaner. You can use either water or silicone-based lube with this toy.

The ripple shapes are interesting when using this toy for penetration. The vibrations are really the best feature of the toy though, since it’s so small. Because of this toy’s design, I would really only recommend it for clitoral and vaginal use. There’s no flared base, so anal is a no-go.

On the vroom scale I’ve given it a score of three. This toy’s vibrations alone were not enough to satisfy me because they’re pretty average. The intensity of the vibrations are controlled via a twist-dial at the bottom, which can get really slippery with lube in the heat of action. I had to use a piece of tissue to turn it off because the small amount of lube I had used somehow worked its way down to where the dial was. It feels like there’s about three different (noticeable) levels of vibration, and it’s focused at the “head” of the vibrator.

On the bee scale I’ve given it a score of two. I tested this by turning it on at full power, placing it on top of the covers of my bed, and closing the door. I could hear a slight hum through the wall. If I hadn’t been trying to hear it I probably wouldn’t have noticed, however. I also tested throwing it under the covers, and I could hear it through them. Closed the door and I could not hear it. I also tested it in the bathroom by placing it on top of a towel and closing the door. I didn’t hear a peep out of it that time. It’s overall a pretty quiet toy to match the vroom scale.

I like how the battery compartment works on this toy. You can open it by twisting the upper bottom-half of the vibrator just above the twist dial. It's difficult to accidentally open it while turning the toy on and off. Unless you’ve gotten lube all over the bottom of it and you’re desperately trying to turn it off. Then you might accidentally open the battery compartment.

I took this into the shower with me on its first test run and had some fun with it. It still works, so it is definitely safe to use in the shower and bathtub.

Overall, this is a good vibrator, but not as exciting as I thought it would be.

    I've been looking at this toy myself, as I also thought the ripples looked really great. That being said, I'm sorry to hear that it wasn't what you expected Sad face

    For me, it was just a "meh" / ok kind of vibrator. I'm sure there's someone out there who could fall in love with this thing, but it wasn't me. Big smile
    Thanks for your comment. ^^
