Allure, Ipsy and something extra

My July’s beauty boxes arrived.

First my Allure Beauty Box came in the mail. I like this box. My favorites are the Redken Sea Salt spray for my hair. Love the way it smells. Doesn’t fell sticky or tacky.allure beauty box, review blogger, subcription boxes, latina blogger

I also like the Cargo Water Resistant blush. Great color.

Next is the Burt’s Bee Facial Oil. Made my face feel smooth and hydrated. I love that because after washing my face it usually feels dry.

Lipstick! I always love lipstick. Wander Beauty “Barely There.” 

The other items were a Bamboo Charcoal sheet mask by Feel. Some Beauty for Real Lip Scrub. There was some Briogeo Rosarco blow dry perfection & heat protectant crème.

 


 

 

ipsy beauty box, review blogger, subcription boxes, latina bloggerMy Ipsy Glam bag  arrived. I’m pretty sure come September or October I’m going to switch to Birch box. I haven’t been thrilled with Ipsy in the past few months. This bag is the cute little Japanese egg mascot – Gudetama makeup bag.

The Tarte Park Avenue Princess bronzeur is perfect. Trifle Cosmetics Raspberry Ripple blush is really good too. I didn’t like the Jersey Shore Cosmetics lip conditioner it smelled bad and smelled awful. The Ciate London eyeliner is really cool. Another makeup brush from Beau Gachis.


Has a special Thank You for being a member of the Allure Subscription Beaut Box club.

Stress Relief Balls Toys [Product Review]

I was asked to review these Stress Relief Balls.
I noticed there are a lot of fidget spinners and companies that are trying to jump on the band wagon of the attention keepers. Objects that would aid a person in focusing, an object to keep in their hands to occupy their mind.
Right. Not happening with these balls.

Stress Relief Balls Toys, product review, sassycat3000, latina blogger
I didn’t find any instruction or information booklet in the package. So I wasn’t aware that there were different levels of firmness to each ball. There was no information explaining which color was the easiest to squeeze and the hardest to squeeze. I had to figure that out by squeezing them all.

The description on Amazon states that I could squish or smoosh these balls. But I couldn’t do either of that. I can’t see using these balls as a fidget type toy for children. I can only see these balls to be used as hand strengtheners, muscle builders. Objects that might be used during physical therapy for the hands, wrists and forearms.

Vibease. My First Bluetooth Vibrator [Product Review]

I was so excited to receive the Vibease and disappointed after using it. I tried several Vibease, bluetooth vibrator, remote control vibrator, latina sex blogger, sex toy reviewtimes to give this little remote-controlled vibrator a thumbs up from my experience. But as many times as I tried I just couldn’t do it. Don’t get me wrong, the Vibease is a cool little toy keeping up with technology by connecting the vibrator to an app you can use on your smart phone. You can listen to erotic audiobooks, connect with your partner via the app who can also control the Vibease vibrator, chat with your partner.

What’s Inside the Box

vibease vibrator, sassycat3000, sex toy review, latina sex blogger

The Vibease is sealed in a clear plastic wrap. The product sleeve has information on 3 sides with the name & logo on the front. Opening the box you will find two charging cables (one short & one long). Two instruction booklets (one quick start & full user manual). One black drawstring bag for storage. I do like that there are two charging cables included. One long & one short. When I first looked where to put the charger into the Vibease I couldn’t see the tiny hole at the bottom.

 

I was really excited to get this vibrator. I thought of some many possibilities how to use it. But my disappointment would soon replace my excitement. First thing was to sync the Vibease with my iPhone. Downloading the app, reading the instructions and I still couldn’t get it to sync via Bluetooth. This is probably super simple for most people but for me, I just had a hell of a time getting it done.

I get easily annoyed with things that don’t start right away. I wanna just push a button and go. I don’t want to have to fiddle around with setting & syncing. I’m not saying that this Bluetooth toy isn’t any good, just not something I’m recommending if you’re like me and an impatient person.

What I didn’t like about the Vibease…

  • For me, it was annoying for me to have to sync up with my iPhone via Bluetooth. It disconnected on me a few times, for whatever reason, which is most annoying when I’m trying to have an orgasm.
  • I couldn’t find where it explains what those blue dots are for. I figured its a way of controlling the vibrations but how? How did I miss the instructions? Are there instructions. I found a few videos, but nothing that answered that question. I just kept swirling them around with my finger like Fruit Ninja.
  • I’m all for audio erotica, but I really felt uncomfortable listening to most of it. I tried not to laugh as well. I felt like most of it is scripted, sure I know it has to be but some of it really sounded bad.
  • The Vibease has a silicone outer covering. This causes the vibrator to collect lots of dust & debris. Which you can see in some of the photos.
  • The way that the Vibease is to be placed against the body seems counterproductive. The Vibease reminds me of a “Peep,” that small tip is to be placed against the clitoris and the rounded fatter end rests against the pubic area.
  • The vibrator kept moving away from my clit and seemed too heavy for my sexy panties. Even wearing my standby granny type panties wouldn’t hold it in place for me to achieve an orgasm.
  • The Audio erotica costs credits. You can buy the credits to purchase specific audios. There are several audios that are free to download and you can even sample most of them before you buy or download them. This is all possible through the app.
  • The Vibease does have several different settings, some of which can be powerful.

What I did Like about the Vibease…..

  • That this vibrator can be used with the app  or can be used alone. It is a very powerful little vibrator however holding it by hand does vibrate in your hand.
  • The Vibease offers so much in a small vibrator, but for me its too much.
  • I like that there are two charging cables with this product.
  • The Vibease app is available on both Google Play and iTunes app stores.
  • I love that this vibrator can be remotely controlled by your partner via the app in the Vibease Chat. You can select out of your contacts on your phone. Perfect for all kinds of titillating conversations.
  • The box was sealed in clear plastic, you get a black drawstring bag to keep everything afterwards.
  • The possibility of adding a new level into a long distance relationship is wonderful for those people who are in one.
  • I absolutely love the option of being able to record a voice fantasy or adding music to the app.

 

I would really like to say that I loved this Bluetooth vibrator, but I don’t. It was just overwhelmed me. I want to masturbate, I don’t want to power up, sync and plug-in my headphones while I listen to someone who sounds like they’re sucking on a popsicle for sound effects. Maybe I’m being too hard on the Vibease, this is my personal experience. I don’t want to walk around with a vibrator that wont stay in place in between my legs. It just frustrates me.

It’s not a bad vibrator, it is a good vibrator, just not for me. The Vibease isn’t something that I will use often.

Satisfyer Pro Penguin [Review]

I have reviewed the Satisfyer 2.

The second clitoral vibrator I received from the Satisfyer family is the Satisfyer Pro Penguin.

sexblogger, latina, product review, Satisfyer Pro Penguin, Clitoral Vibrator

The Satisfyer Pro Peguin is also a touch-free clitoral vibrator that uses the “pressure wave” technology.  The opening of the vibrator is placed over the clitoris to feel the vibrations made from the burst of air coming from the device. The Penguin also has 11 different levels of intense vibrations. However, instead of having two separate control buttons the penguin has combined the control buttons in one central area. Once the power button is pushed it will light up and stay lit until the device is turned off. You can increase the vibrations by pushing towards the button area of the control button.

sexblogger, latina, product review, Satisfyer Pro Penguin, Clitoral VibratorSatisfyer Pro Penguin Clitoral Vibrator

Something I do not like about Pro Penguin is that once you have pushed the power increase button you can not decrease the power until you have reached the maximum level. Once you have maxed out power then the Penguin will begin to decrease in its intensity back down to the lowest level.

sexblogger, latina, product review, Satisfyer Pro Penguin, Clitoral VibratorSatisfyer Pro Penguin Clitoral Vibrator

The Penguin is a lot smaller than the others. It’s about 5 inches in length and compared to the Satisfyer 2 the opening on the Penguin is larger with an obtuse angled head & neck with a rounded penguin-like body. This device is silky, smooth silicone texture verses the smooth plastic of the Satisfyer 2 and the Satisfyer Pro 2. The white silicone tip is removable for easy cleaning. It is also thinner than the Satisfyer 2. I experienced some roughness from the edges while using this device. I didn’t have a problem with the white removable tip falling off until the Penguin was used on me by my partner. When he would switch hands or move the vibrator around for some reason the tip would fall off. Not once but a few times which broke my concentration.

sexblogger, latina, product review, Satisfyer Pro Penguin, Clitoral VibratorSatisfyer Pro Penguin Clitoral Vibrator

After holding the Penguin for a few minutes I noticed that I feel the vibration more in my hand than I did with the other two Satisfyer’s. Perhaps because its smaller and is silicone that the vibration is more pronounced in this model than in the plastic models. This model has rechargeable li-ion batteries sealed inside the body and it comes with a magnetic USB charging cable.

WHAT I DIDN’T LIKE ABOUT THE SATISFYER PRO PENGUIN

  • The white silicone tip is too thin for my liking. Sometimes it fell out while in use or in transport.
  • The intensity/vibrating control button is like being on an elevator, going up (stopping at every floor) to the skydeck looking around and coming back down but also stopping on every floor. I prefer the Satisfyer 2’s +/- control button.
  • Wasn’t too thrilled with the “power on” light.

sexblogger, latina, product review, Satisfyer Pro Penguin, Clitoral VibratorSatisfyer Pro Penguin Clitoral Vibrator

WHAT I DID LIKE ABOUT THE SATISFYER PRO PENGUIN

  • I do like the size of the Penguin, the shape is kind of cute. I like the feel the silicone feels in my hands.
  • Contains Li-ion (rechargeable) batteries. The magnetic USB charging cable is included.
  • It is submergible. (Have not tested this device out underwater. I am kind of afraid too)
  • Affordable. Usually it’s less than $50.
  • Easy to clean
  • The device came inside its box that had two separate seals, to assure the customer that the device had not been previously opened.

 

Same Intense Orgasms as the Satisfyer 2.

I enjoyed testing this out as I did the other two Satifyer’s I received. This one was used by both myself during some “me time,” in which I did have some very intense toe-curling orgasms resulting in extreme wetness. I was not disappointed with the Penguin doing its job, I was only irritated when my partner was using on me and the white silicone tip kept falling out. When my partner would move the device or switch hands somehow the white insertable tip would fall out of the vibrator. Of course you are probably guessed how  annoyed I was when that happened, not to mention distracted, interrupted from reaching my orgasm.

After I had reached my orgasms, I decided to just play around with this toy. My partner laid down on his back, both of us had no expectations using this stimulator. His penis was flaccid and I placed the Penguin on his frenulum on a light-medium setting. I continued using my other hand on other areas of his penis. A few minutes passed by, when I felt his penis hardening. My partner reached an orgasm while I used the Penguin on him, just on that area. He shared that it was a different experience, different sensation and pleasurable. I’m not suggesting that the Penguin to used in this manner, I am merely sharing my experience using this stimulator.

Satisfyer Pro 2 [Review]

The Satisfyer Pro 2 is the final review of my Satisfyer models.

Satisfyer Pro 2

All of the Satisfyer’s use the amazing kind of “pressure wave” technology. It feels like the device head is sucking but it’s actually using bursts of air to cause the vibration against your clitoris.

Each box has two Hygienic Seals on them. One on the edge of the box and the other was on the bottom of the box. A form of reassurance that the product has not been opened or used until I opened it for myself. On the sides of the box were the specs and general information about the device in several different languages.

Inside the box I found the Satisfyer Pro 2 and charging cable. There is a booklet of instructions also in several different languages. The booklet is broken down into Functions/Use, Cleaning, Storage and Material, Troubleshooting, Disposal and Safety Information. There is some helpful & useful information in the booklet. Also if you have any trouble with your Satisfyer Pro 2, there is an email provided.

Out of the three models that I received this one is my favorite.

What I didn’t like about the Satisfyer Pro 2:

  • There is a small circular light that is in between the power on/off and power control buttons. I don’t see the reason for this light, when the power button could be easily as efficient. The light is as bright as my iPhone is during the nighttime mode. It’s rather annoying when trying to use the device with a partner at night. I held my finger over the light while I used it with my partner. (See photo above).
  • There is no lowering the intensity of the vibrations. You must go through 11 settings to the top in order to get back down to the lowest setting.
  • This device like the others is not 100% waterproof. Water still gathers around the buttons. Not sure how much water actually gets inside of the device itself.
  • The noise level seems to be too loud for my liking. I wouldn’t chance using it in a house full of kids or a family reunion just out of paranoia. The noise at its highest sounds like a hair trimmer at the barber shop.

What I did like about the Satisfyer Pro 2:

  • I like the thick wide silicone removable tip on the devices head. The opening is smaller than the others, but for me that channeled the pulses more direct and intense.
  • Easy to wash and easy to clean. The silicone tip is removable and doesn’t fall off or move around during use. With this model the white silicone tip is not placed inside the nozzle or the head, but placed over the nozzle. I like this much better than the other two models I reviewed. (see photos below).
  • The fully charged device can last several uses even over days of not using.
  • The design of this specific device. Compared to the others, I prefer this model and design. The smooth feel in my hands, the size of the device is not as large as the Satisfyer 2 yet it is larger than the Satisfyer Pro Penguin. However, it does seem a bit heavier than the Satisfyer 2, but not enough that it would change my mind not to like it better.
  • 11 different intensity settings.
  • Affordable. Depending on where you but it from. I’ve seen it as high as $100 and as low as $50.
  • That is it rechargeable and comes with its own USB charging cable.

Satisfyer Pro 2, sexblogger, latina, product review, Clitoral Vibrator

Would I recommend the Satisfyer Pro 2?

Yes. Yes I would. I would also suggest if & when using it in water not to submerge it for a long time. To try to keep the device’s buttons from getting too much exposure to the water. Masturbation, Satisfyer Pro 2, sexblogger, latina, product review, Clitoral Vibrator

Be cautious when first using this device because the sensations are very intense. Especially if you’re not used such extreme vibration. I had previously mentioned in my other reviews that my orgasms are never disappointing. The orgasms are just as intensely satisfying as with the other models that I have used and reviewed. I would recommend this model above the other two, based on my personal experiences with all of three models (Satisfyer 2, Satisfyer Pro Penguin and Satisfyer Pro 2).

Satisfyer 2 [Review]

I was expecting to receive one of the Satisfyer products and was thrilled when I received three of the Satisfyer’s to test out. I received the Satisfyer 2, Satisfyer Pro 2 and the Satisfyer Pro Penguin. I wasn’t sure if I wanted to review them together and compare them to each other or to review each one separately. I decided to do each one on its own starting with the Satisfyer 2.

These touch-free clitoral stimulators use a “pressure wave” technology. In which the opening of the stimulator is placed on the clit or the area to be stimulated, to feel what seems like suction, but is really bursts of air. The higher the setting you use the more intense and more vibration you feel on your selected area. I think because of the oval-shaped head and the deeper area pushes the air harder, faster to the selected area.

Satisfyer 2, sassycat3000, product review, sex toy review, sexblogger, latina

I noticed that each box had two Hygienic Seals on them. One located on the edge of the box and the other was on the bottom of the box. A form of reassurance that the product has not been opened or used until I opened it for myself. On the sides of the box were the specs and general information about the device in several different languages.

Opening the box I found the Satisfyer 2 along with a booklet of instructions also in several different languages. The booklet is broken down into Functions/Use, Cleaning, Storage and Material, Troubleshooting, Disposal and Safety Information. There is some helpful & useful information in the booklet. Also if you have any trouble with your Satisfyer 2, there is an email provided. Something that made me wonder about was written under Safety Information and it states “Do not use the product to stimulate any part of the body for longer than 15 minutes.” WHY? What will happen if you do? How do they know it’s 15 minutes, might be 10 or 20 for someone else. But what happens???? I think I might be able to answer that, however let’s continue with this other information first.

The Satisfyer 2 requires 2 AAA batteries to use it. Batteries are inserted at the bottom of the product by twisting to the bottom section to the left. Insert 2 AAA batteries, place bottom back on, twist to the right and now all I have to do is turn it on.

The outside of the Satisfyer 2 is pretty straight forward. There is a circular power button and a long multi-speed power button with a + and – symbol on it.

Satisfyer 2, sassycat3000, product review, sex toy review, sexblogger, latina

Before I used the product I held it in my hand, turned it on & off. I assumed that the on/off button was just a simple push, it is to turn the Satisfyer 2 on, but you must hold down the power button for a few seconds for it to shut off. I noticed that the power button is slightly slanted. I’m not sure if there is on purpose, part of the design or if maybe I pushed it in too hard. If you look closely in the photo below you can see where the button is lower on one end than it is on the other. The power still works fine.

Satisfyer 2, sassycat3000, product review, sex toy review, sexblogger, latina

The + and – button control the intensity of the pressure wave or the vibration. It’s a steady vibration no different rhythms. When you start it you are on the lowest setting. This product has 11 different levels of intensity which are all pretty good. However if you have not used a product like this before it can be a bit intense in the beginning. I can have an orgasm within the first 10 minutes of using this product.

The volume level is a bit on the loud side. I placed it under a blanket on my bed and closed the bedroom door. Windows open, birds chirping and I could just hear a slight buzzing. When the device is wide open (highest setting) it sounds like a hedge trimmer or weed whacker or even a Dremel tool that is just idling.

I don’t like that I was unable to find a price on the Satisfyer website. However, I did find several varying prices through the internet. Anywhere from $49.99 to $29.98 and everything in between.

My Intense Orgasms

I didn’t have any expectations for myself or the product. I thought that because it’s battery operated that it might not last very long. However, so far it has lasted longer than I expected. I used it a handful of times at 20 minutes at a time with a middle to high intensity level and using the same batteries I put in there when I received the product.

I have never had such intense eye-rolling in the back of my head orgasms until I used this device. Generally speaking this device is fairly easy to use one-handed. I did use this device longer than 15 minutes as stated in the instruction booklet. After a while there was a slight burning tingling sensation. Not sure if that was part of the intensity but I rolled with it. It kind of reminded me when I used to go swimming and went to the bathroom immediately afterwards. There was that weird stinging sensation. The orgasms were super intense. I’m not sure if at one point I squirted or peed on myself.  I am 99% sure I squirted. This is not the norm for me. At this point after having so many intense orgasms I really don’t care.  I am never disappointed with my orgasms that I get when I use this device.

WHAT I DIDN’T LIKE ABOUT THE SATISFYER 2

  • The device was not truly waterproof (Photos Below)
  • The control buttons were uneven (not sure if that was intentional or done by me pushing to hard)
  • Battery operated (2 AAA)

WHAT I DID LIKE ABOUT THE SATISFYER 2

  • Easy to clean
  • Removable silicone tip (Photo Below)
  • Slim line design (easy to hold)
  • Multi-speed (11 speeds, from very light pressure waves to very intense)
  • Affordable
  • Lightweight
  • Body safe

Recommendations & Conclusion

Let’s discuss the main defect of the Satisfyer 2. It claims that it is “waterproof” with a IPX7 rating.Satisfyer 2, sassycat3000, product review, sex toy review, sexblogger, latina

  • The term waterproof implies that the product will not be destroyed, damaged if submerged in water.
  • The IPX7 rating means that the device (should be) is protected from immersion in water up to 3 feet (1 meter).

Knowing now that this product has an issue with water entering the battery chamber, it would be my recommendation that when the Satisfyer 2 is used in the shower, bathtub or a time when water can enter that the batteries be removed as soon as possible after use. That the battery chamber be dried with a q-tip, dried as thoroughly as possible. Possibly stored upright in order for any excess water to drain out.

I noticed that when the bottom part of the Satisfyer 2 is secured, that there is a tiny lip that seems to be in place of an O-ring. Perhaps a clear plastic O-ring added to create a barrier in addition to that other lip already in the body of the product.

If the product is not used totally submerged in water maybe it should be dried with head of product down in order to allow any excess water to drain out and the silicone tip removed (and cleaned).

I would also suggest not using the control buttons while the device is being used under water. There is a likelihood of water leaking into the device while using the buttons.

My Satisfyer 2 still works after the batteries were replaced (with new ones)  from being shorted out due to water exposure. The product continues to work as it did in the beginning, but for how long I not sure.

I will not say do not buy this product, because it is affordable. It does cause intense orgasms. I did enjoy using it, however I am always skeptical when a product says that it is waterproof, requires batteries or has any type of opening with the possibility of water exposure. The product can not truly be 100% waterproof.

I think that the Satisfyer Family needs to consider changing their waterproof claim.

Food for thought: The iPhone 7 has a IP67 rating which means that it is protected against dust & water.  Yet water leakage is not covered under the warranty. And knowing what you know now after reading this review, ask yourself – Would you submerge the Satisfyer 2 under water intentionally?

My Monthly Beauty Box Subscription Addiction

I love getting stuff in the mail. Can anyone tell me that they don’t like getting packages in the mail? Bills don’t count.

A few months back, like in October I wanted to get some new mascara. I had wanted to try some new makeup products but never seem to be able to afford some of the products. I also wanted to be able to write some reviews on some new products.

Then I was scrolling through my old websites and found one site I had forgotten all about. I logged on and looked around, signed up to receive a few beauty boxes a month. The price varies on the company box. I also signed up during the holidays when the deals were pretty good. I didn’t have to pay full prices on some of the monthly boxes.

I signed up for the Wal-Mart Box. Target Beauty Box. Allure Box and Ipsy Glam Bag. I had to stop because it could get expensive especially when the boxes are $10 each. The Wal-Mart box is $5 and is sent out every three months and the others are monthly.

I received the Wal-Mart Beauty Box first back in October of 2016. The first Wal-Mart box was mostly all lotions, which was really ok because winter was coming and so was the dry skin. Then I moved onto the Ipsy Glam Bag and the Target Beauty Box in November. And now around every mid-month I receive a new Ipsy Bag and a new Allure Beauty Box. The Target Beauty box must be ordered monthly, which is ok. You get to see ahead time what’s inside so you don’t have to order it if it’s not something you want or need.

I had planned on starting to review the boxes, but you have how I’ve been lately. A mess, unorganized and undisciplined when it comes to my writing and blogging. I really need to be cock slapped.

I like the Allure Beauty Boxes the best. Their “samples” are at the higher end, if you know what I mean. For March I received the following items…march allure beauty box, sassycat3000, latina blogger, subscription addiction, monthly samples,

  • Akar Skin Ruby Tint Lip Butter – There is a code on the box for 20% off my first purchase. 100% natural & organic. Not bad for the lips, I will use it up.
  • Derma E Vitamin C Concentrated Serum – I will always use an anti-aging serum every chance I get. I like this product.
  • John Frieda Luxurious Volume 7 day Volume in-shower treatment – Haven’t used this yet, but I’m pretty sure I wont be disappointed.
  • Londontown Lakur Enhanced Colour -“Cheerio” is the color I received a sheer pinkish color.
  • Londontown Kur Nourishing Cuticle Oil – This is great stuff. I love it. Winter is always hard on my hands, so this came at a great time now that spring is here.
  • Secret Invisible Solid Cool Waterlily Deodorant. A sample, which is ok. I like trying new stuff.

There wasn’t anything in the Allure Box that I didn’t like. Each month you get a new bag to use, some are cute and some aren’t. Mostly they’re intended for you to use as a compact makeup bag. I use them for all sorts of other things.

 In the Ipsy Bag, my favorite product is…

march ipsy glam bag, sassycat3000, latina blogger, beauty box, subscription addiction, monthly, samples

  • Tarteist™ quick dry matte lip paint – Vibin(wine) color. The color lasts long, matte. I’m really getting into these matte lip paints.

Target’s Beauty Box for March I received the following…

  • Missha Time Revolution First Treatment Essence
  • Soapbox Bamboo Shampoo & Conditioner target beauty box, sassycat300, latina blogger, beauty porducts, subscription addiction
  • Jergens Natural Glow Wet Skin Moisturizer – This is my favorite product out of the box. In the winter my skin gets so dry that I would use baby oil before drying off with a towel then adding the lotion before getting dressed. But this lotion is GREAT! I rub it in before drying off and I don’t have to add anymore moisturizing products to my skin after that. I loved it so much that I went out and purchased a large bottle.
  • Dove Volume & Fullness Dry Shampoo
  • Neutrogena Hydro Boost Lip Shine – This is ok. A bit waxy, sticky on the lips. Makes me rub my lips together a lot.
  • Skinfix Foaming Oil Cleaner – I like this facial cleaner as well. A very small dab of cleaner goes a long way.

My favorite box is the Allure Beauty Box.

You get more bang for your buck as well as a variety of products. There is a booklet that comes inside that tells you all about your products. It’s a draw between the Target & Ipsy Bag and lastly the Wal-Mart Beauty Box. The Wal-Mart box is only $5 and really is a great deal for some samples. If I could afford it (monthly) I would subscribe to FabFitFun Box but that’s $49.99. Can’t afford it yet! I just might have to add the Birchbox though because that one is only $10 a month.

 

Doggy Style Spreader Bar with Wrist & Ankle Cuffs [Product Review]

I don’t own a lot of BDSM sex toys. I’ve wanted to try a few new things. Sexy Slave, an estore provided me with this cool spreader bar kit. Sexy Slave is also providing the prize for the giveaway I am hosting. You still have time to enter! Winner will be announced December 26, 2016.

 

Doggy Style Spreader Bar with Wrist & Ankle Cuffs

 

Included in this kit:

  • 4 Adjustable Velcro Wrist/Ankle Padded Cuffs
  • 1 Ball Gag
  • 1 Blindfold

Doggy Style Spreader Bar with Wrist & Ankle Cuffs from Sexy Slave.

I received a 3 piece doggie style leg spreader that has ankle & wrists cuffs, ball gag and blindfold in the Amazon brown box. Inside the product was in a sealed silver bubble-lined envelope. The product needed two of these bags overlapped to cover the item which was inside a clear plastic bag sealed with a clear circular sticky. The spreader bar was inside and the two items were in separate zip-lock type bags.

The Spreader bar is about 16 inches long. The ankle cuffs are not detachable, secured as one piece of soft nylon material that makes up the bar. There are two separate bars within the securely sewed nylon material that prevent meg movement. Add 6 inches of nylon material for each ankle. Each ankle cuff is lined with a soft thick velour material.

What I liked about the Spreader Bar…..

  • The price is reasonable for the 3 items in this kit.
  • The product arrived quickly from the Seller.
  • The nylon material that covers the bar is thick and doesn’t irritate the skin. The velour material was thick on the inside of the ankle & wrist cuffs.
  • The ball gag has holes through it for easy breathing. It is about 1.5 inches in diameter and fits around the head 16 -20  inches. I like this ball gag better than the hard plastic one I tried before. The gag secures by a buckle.
  • The bar is comfortable to wear, doesn’t irritate the skin. A soft velour material is on the inside of each cuff which also is good for absorption of sweat.
  • Each cuff is secured by Velcro, for a comfortable fit. But the cuffs are secured to the bar by a heavy stitching.

What I didn’t like about the Spreader Bar…..

  • That the ball gag was just a little to big. We had to punch a few extra holes in it to make it feel more comfortable. I did notice with my experience that if the ball wasn’t centered that one side would “pinch” the corner of my mouth and make it a little raw.
  • I do have a concern about the cleaning of the ball gag since the ball is movable and is secured on a section of leather material. I wonder about mold or bacteria growing after the material remains wet and/or air dries.
  • The mask is a kind of cheesy, more like a cheap little add-on. It is thin, light shines through, but not easy to detect items.
  • Not sure how one cleans the bar.

 

Would I recommend this Spreader Bar kit?

I would have to say yes. Because it is worth the price (less than $20) The bar is sturdy, durable and covered in a thick and comfortable nylon material. The ball gag has breathable holes, thick material and is unlikely to fall apart quickly. The bar is comfortable to wear, it doesn’t irritate my skin. Although I did find that using this spreader is hard on the hamstring muscles if the muscles are tight. Start stretching them out before using to prevent leg cramp!
