Perfect for first-timers

I really enjoy having this in my collection, even if it's not my go to toy. It's great to know that I have something I can trust if everything else decided to break down.
inexpensive, powerful for the price, versatile.
not waterproof

useful review


This little pearl is good for general, all-over, stimulation. I've used it on myself and the husband, and on pretty much every erogenous zone. Memory serves that, for such an inexpensive vibe, when used in conjunction with digital stimulation, it is quite capable of fulfilling one's need for orgasm.

Although it could be used for any erogenous zone, shy away from anal use as the base is not flared enough to keep it from going into the anus.

It is also not waterproof, so don't take it into the shower or tub.

Material / Texture

This vibe is made of smooth ABS plastic with a pearlized appearance. This is not a "painted on" pearl finish like the chocolates line. The texture is nice as there's minimal drag, especially when using some lube. This is an all-around decent vibe; I can't say that it's just for beginners as I think it's good to have on hand. It's no more expensive than the lifesaver vibes, but it's prettier and more effective.

The body of the vibe is very rigid, non-porous plastic. There are no grooves in the body of the vibe to collect fluids. However, the base of the vibe does have ridges in the cap that will collect fluids; wipe it down carefully with toy cleaner spray and a cloth. Do not submerge in water!
    • No odor
    • Not porous at all
    • Rigid

Design / Shape / Size

The design is that of a classic vibe. Although it is phallic, it isn't realistic. My husband found this to be very unintimidating, and I caught him playing with it occasionally.

The size isn't too small or too large; it's comfortable yet slightly filling. Again, this isn't something that will intimidate the hubby. It's an average length, with below average girth. And it's not a realistic color.

This toy is quite easy to hide. It's small enough to stash in the pillowcase, between the mattresses, in the lingerie drawer...

This toy is small enough it shouldn't be a problem to travel with. Just make sure to take the batteries out.
    • Discreet look/design

Functions / Performance / Controls

The base of the vibrator is a dial/battery cap. The vibrations range from low to mid-high and are best felt in the top of the shaft. The controls are very easy to use, and I don't find myself turning it off in the middle of playtime, nor does it turn itself on in the drawer.

As far as noise, it's not the loudest toy I own, but it's not the quietest either. I wouldn't use it if I were in fear of behind heard or drawing attention from a mother passing by my bedroom door.
    • Easy to use

Care and Maintenance

Wiping down with a damp cloth and toy cleaner should be sufficient for cleaning this toy. You could use a bleach solution as a cleaner if you feel the need, but you can't boil or otherwise submerge the toy.

Water-based lube is what I generally recommend for playing with toys, but any kind of lube will work with this.

For storage, anything goes. Just make sure you don't drop the toy, as it can and will crack. Check the plastic housing before use for any cracks and discontinue use if you find a crack. This is how my first one took a trip to the garbage. I did replace it with the same model and do still have it.
    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store


The packaging is a basic plastic clamshell package with paper insert. I don't see a reason to keep the package. It doesn't lend well to storage in a small space, wrapping, or presenting as a gift.
    • Minimal
    • Not discreet
Follow-up commentary
This trusty little vibe is still sticking around. It hasn't started to get noisy or slow down on me (that I've noticed). Like I said, I'd had one before and the only reason I'd gotten rid of that one was because the plastic cracked in a weak spot. I'm still happy with this one.

    Thanks for a well-written and informative review. I had what I think is an earlier version of this toy and it lasted for years, surprisingly.

    This was my first vibrator and I still have it. You can clean it with soap and water. I've never had an issue with doing so.
