extremely useful review


When they say "Great things come in small packages", they must have been talking about the Mini Pearlessence. This is your simple basic vibrator with no bells or whistles, but perfect for those just stepping into the sex toy world. It it easy to use and not intimidating at all. It's great for vaginal penetration, labia stimulation, and clitoral stimulation. You can even use it on your nipples and other erogenous spots. You can use it alone or with a partner. It's small size makes it easy to slip in between you and your partner for some added stimulation during intercourse, anal or oral sex, without it getting in the way. For the more advanced, this is definitely a good warm-up toy.

If you are shopping for an anal toy, please look elsewhere. This is definitely not intended for anal use as there is no flared based and with its petite size it could very easily get lost within.

Material / Texture

The Mini Pearlessence is made of a hard plastic. It it a completely non-porous, food-grade material that is phthalates & latex free. It's very smooth with no texture at all making it great for beginners. When lubed, it slides nicely over your girly parts with no drag at all. There is absolutely no taste or smell to this toy.
    • No odor
    • Not porous at all
    • Smooth

Design / Shape / Size

The Mini Pearlessence is sleek and petite with 4 1/2" total in length, 3 1/2" insertable with a circumference of 4" and a diameter of 1 1/4". It has a straight shaft and with its pointed tip it is perfect for pin point stimulation. This is not a discreet toy as far as sight and is visibly a vibrator, but with its small size it really easy to hide. The size and material make it great to travel with as there are no special needs, bags, or storing instructions. Just throw it in your suitcase or carry-on and you are good to go.

Functions / Performance / Controls

This toy is powered by 1 AA battery but don't be fooled. It packs quite the punch for a little thing. The vibrations travel nicely up the shaft right to the tip, even on its lowest setting. The battery is inserted by removing the screw on base. On the base is a multispeed dial. The dial is easy to turn, and can be controlled with one hand on your vibrator and using your thumb to turn the dial. Like most toys, the higher you crank it up the louder it gets. It's definitely not discreet as far as sound goes, and can definitely be heard through a closed door. When on its highest speed, it's more like a rattle rather than a buzz.
    • Easy to use
    • Multiple settings
    • Not very discreet

Care and Maintenance

Cleaning is very simple by just washing it with hot water and an antibacterial soap or your favorite toy cleaner. Do not submerge in water as it is not waterproof. There are no special storing instructions. When finished washing you can store it in your toy box or tuck it in a drawer. You don't have to worry about it reacting with other materials. It's not a lint or dust collector, but like every other toy it should be washed before and after each use.

You may use any lubricant you wish with this toy.
    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store


The Mini Pearlessence comes in a clear plastic package that can be easily opened by pulling it apart at the top. It's is definitely not discreet as you can see the toy clearly. There is a picture of a woman in the background with only her legs exposed. There are no instructions included, and only a few toy specs.

For me, this toy works best for clitoral stimulation. When fully inserted I can barely feel the vibrations inside of me, but my clit seems to love it!

This is the perfect toy for introducing sex toys into the bedroom. My partner had never used toys before being with me so I had to find a vibrator that was not intimidating for him. I used this vibrator to introduce him to the sex toy world, allowing him to use it on me and then me using it to stimulate his bits as well. He instantly fell in love with it, and it still plays a role in our sex life. I find this toy less of a hassle to use than bullets during couples' play if you don't want to get tangled in controllers and wires, especially if you tend to move around a lot.
Follow-up commentary
It's not that I don't like this toy anymore or think it's a bad product - it's just not ideal for me. This vibe has made it to the bottom of my toybox collecting dust. I still recommend this as an introductory toy or for beginners who are not looking to spend much.
