This is the baby pink and white rechargeable Gigi from the luxury sex toy makers Lelo, this was sent to me by the lovely people over at Bondara, it came in some lovely discreet packaging and arrived super-fast.
It comes in some lovely stylish packaging, a simple pink box with Lelo printed on one side and a clear picture of the toy on the other, none of those horrible cheap looking pictures of half naked women on this one, just a lovely simple yet stylish design. Open the pink box and slide out the black box inside, this looks like a lovely gift box, and the packaging alone would make it an ideal present for someone special.
Inside the box, is the Gigi 2, a charger, a sample of the Lelo Lubricant, the guarantee’s and the instructions and a lovely satin storage pouch. This pouch is lovely, it is just the right size for the toy and looks great, it would mean that the toy would be easy to store in a drawer without it looking obvious.
The instruction book is nice and clear with some lovely diagrams inside to help you get started with your new rechargeable toy straight away.
Before you start
Before you play with the Lelo Gigi 2 for the 1st time you need to give it a charge, you remove the rubber stopper and push in the charger much the same as you do with a cell phone, whilst it is charging the light flashes to indicate that it is charging, once the charge is complete the light stays on. When the battery starts to run low the light glows red which is a sign it needs to be re-charged. I find this to be a really helpful feature because I don’t want to be left frustrated by a dying battery in the middle of a session.
The charge takes about 2 hours and a single charge can last up to an hour and a half. When the Gigi 2 is charging it states that you should avoid trying to turn it on, no matter how tempting it may be to do so.
Once it is fully charged, you turn the Lelo Gigi 2 on by using the panel on the front. To turn the vibe on you hold the plus button down for a few seconds, this button also increases the speed of the vibrations.
Functionality and how it performs
Unlike most other vibrators where you have 3 speeds and a few patterns, with this vibe, you can choose your pattern and your speed. The Up and Down arrows scroll through the patterns, when you reach the final pattern rather than going back to the start again you need to scroll back down to it, this is possibly the only thing that I didn’t like about this toy and is a very minor thing.
The plus and minus button adjust the speed, holding the minus button also turns the Gigi off, if you want to lock it then you hold the panel for a few seconds, but I have found that just using the minus button to switch it off is usually enough.
The vibe is slightly smaller than I was expecting but it is a nice size, the white control panel sitting just under your thumb when you are using it making it easily controllable.
The head of the Lelo Gigi is shaped perfectly for me, it pushes right against the g-spot when being used internally but as it is flat it also works equally well against the clit, making this a fantastic all rounder. It is also remarkably quiet, making it perfect for anyone who shares a house.
Although this vibe is probably a bit more expensive than its battery operated equals, it easily makes up for it in the fact that it is rechargeable, not only does it mean that you won’t be endlessly needing to change batteries, or having to deal with the vibrator running down mid use as you can keep it topped up, but it is also a lot lighter than a battery operated toy as there isn’t the weight of the battery to add to the toy.
The material that the business end of the Lelo Gigi is made out of is silicone and it feels really soft and tactile, once I picked it up I didn’t want to put it down. I just love the feel of the head of the toy, the shape and the warmth of the silicone really is something that you need to feel to understand.
Some Key Features
- 8 adjustable vibration modes
- Made from FDA approved body safe silicone
- Submersible to 1 meter, the charging socket is sealed internally
Please note that silicone toys should not be used with silicone lubricant and should be stored separately from other toys to prevent them from reacting with each other and melting, nothing worse than your favorite toy being spoiled because of incorrect storage or lube. The storage pouch which is provided with this toy is the perfect accessory to make sure that this doesn’t happen.
The Vibrations on this toy are good, they are nice and deep and powerful, in fact given its size it is a really powerful toy, they do not buzz so much as throb meaning that they feel lovely and deep.
Overall, I am in love with this vibrator, the shape is lovely making it a perfect toy for both clit and g-spot stimulation, the vibrations go from nice and gentle to strong and throbbing. The charge lasts well and the panel is nice and easy to use. The little storage pouch is just the perfect finishing touch.
