Shimmer and Shine - Perfect for a Newbie

Overall I think this is a good beginners toy. It's great for a basic toy, and it being pretty, is an added bonus. I'm not let down by this toy, because it was good for a basic vibrator.

This vibrator is fun to play with. It's quite small (only 6" long), which didn't bother me, as it's easy to keep hidden and easy to travel with. I think it makes a great beginners toy because it's quite simple and not hard to figure out how to use.

I loved the fact that this toy is plastic. I have an allergy to latex, so I'm very happy that there is a good range of sex toys available that are non latex. Because this toy plastic, I found it very smooth and quite easy to insert. There was no friction what so ever. Plus, the free lube that came with the toy made it even more fun to use. Note that plastic is not completely non-porous and a condom should be used if sharing. I recommend using water based or silicone lubes.

The dial is very tricky to figure out. It's hard to turn, and I found that you have to turn it a fair bit before the vibrations actually start. I couldn't get the hang of adjusting the speed while it was inserted, so I had to actually stop, pull it out, adjust it, then keep going. When you are on the max vibrations, it can be quite loud. Loud enough that I felt as though someone in the next room might be able to hear it. The base is easy to hold. It doesn't really slip and slide in your fingers like some other toys do. The speed of the vibrations is variable which is good. The vibrations were good, noticeable for a beginner, but not over the top that it's unbearable.

This toy takes 1 AA battery that is very easy to put in. They don't seem to drain too fast, which is good also.

Cleaning the toy is easy. I just washed it with soapy water. However, after I washed and dried it, some of the shine finish washed off. I'm a bit bummed, because it was so pretty when it shimmered. This toy is waterproof, but I haven't had the chance to use it the shower/bath just yet. I didn't have any problems when cleaning though.

I think this toy works great as a couples toy. It can be used on your nipples, clit, belly, balls, butt, and any other region that you can think of. It's small enough that you would have no problems using it externally on your clit while your partner jack hammers inside you. This toy felt fine for insertion, but I liked it best clitorally because it was a bit too small. This toy would work great during foreplay, and for your guy to use on you.
