Rating ❤❤❤

Why I chose to review a silicone lubricant, I’ll never understand. Actually I do, when I chose to review this lubricant, I didn’t realize that it was silicone based, whoops! About 98% of my toy collection is made up of silicone, so that leaves me with only a few toys that I can actually use this lubricant with. It is possible to use silicone lubricant with silicone toys, but both need to be made from high quality ingredients. You should always spot test silicone lube on silicone toys to see if there is a reaction. With that being said, I’m not a huge fan of silicone lubricant and I wouldn’t want to risk ruining one of my toys by using it on them. The packaging on this toy recommends to not use this lube with other silicone products.

The first time I tested this lube, I used it with my only glass dildo, Rainbow Heart. I’m not sure if all of the texture on the toy affected the lubricant any, but I had to use quite a bit and keep reapplying it. It didn’t really seem to be long lasting or very slick. I somehow always managed to get it on my hands and it’s really hard to get off. When I do use it, it leaves my skin feeling soft which is nice, but I’m just not a fan.

ppplThe nice thing about this lube is that is only has 4 ingredients in it. It contains Dimethicone, Cyclopentasiloxane, Dimethiconol, and Phenyl Trimethicone. On the packaging, it says to keep the bottle upright or it could leak. My bottle leaks a lot, both upright and sitting onpppln it’s side. I asked a few other people if their bottles leaked, and theirs only seemed to leak if the bottle was on it’s side, so I’m not sure if I just have a faulty bottle or what. I would definitely try to get your bottle stored upright to avoid a mess. The design of this bottle is a pop top lid which is easy to use, but a lot tends to come out since it’s so runny. The packaging for this lube is very nice. It’s simple yet classy. The box it comes in is white with a picture of the bottle on the front, their logo on each side and the back has directions, warnings, and a list of the ingredients.

The shipping for this product was fast and mostly discreet, I say mostly because the return label on mine did say ‘Penchant Design, LLC’. Most people aren’t going to be able to figure out where it’s from even if they Google it. Mine arrived in a white bubble mailer and it was packaged safely. Inside there was a small, white box holding the lubricant with some decorative grass to make it look nice. I did really like the packaging that this lubricant had!

Tantus Echo Handle ~ Review

tehechoooI was sent Echo Handle (grab bag version) free of charge in exchange for an unbiased review by Tantus!

Pros: Grab bag option, Affordable, Texture, Beginner friendly, Handle, Good for deep penetration.

Cons: I have nothing bad to say about this toy!

Rating ❤❤❤❤❤

Use:

The Echo Handle is a dildo everyone needs in their life! I’m not just saying that either, I haven’t been able to put it down since I got it back in the beginning of November! I’ve kept it next to my bed, so it’s easy to reach! It’s great for beginners and a good warm up toy for experienced toy users! It’s a good g-spot toy! The handle is my favorite part of this toy. It’s great for deep penetration, makes it easy to use anally and it makes it easy to hold when using it on someone else. The handle has grips where your fingers go, and it’s a matte silicone, so it’s easy to grip! Be sure to use a condom (or boil it!) if you plan to share with a partner or will be using it between holes. Use a dab of water based lube for easy insertion. I could go on and on about how in love I am with this toy! You need to buy one asap!

Material/Texture/Firmness:IMG_1280 (2)

Tantus makes their toys out of their own unique formula of 100% Ultra-Premium Silicone. It is phthalate free, hypoallergenic, non-toxic, non-porous, and hygienic. The texture on this toy feels so amazing! You get a bit of texture from the head and then the shaft is covered in ridged texture. If you aren’t a fan of texture, then this toy isn’t going to be for you. Most of Tantus toys are made out of very firm silicone, which you all know I enjoy! It’s a lot firmer then other companies such as Exotic-Erotics and Bad Dragon. When you squeeze it, it doesn’t have much give to it.

 Design/Shape/Size:

The Echo Handle is a realistic-esque dildo. It has a head, which gives you a slight popping sensation. The shaft is covered in amazing texture, and the handle has grips for easy use! I received mine in their grab bag option, so this isn’t a standard color. The standard colors for the Echo Handle are Strawberry and Midnight Purple. Mine is a beautiful mix of cream, black and a coffee color. When you order a grab bag toy from Tantus, you could receive a solid, standard color or something amazing such as this or this! It has a diameter of 1.5 inches and a length of 7 useable inches. The length and diameter are going to work well with most people.

 IMG_1278 (2)ehhgehhIMG_1279 (2)Care/Maintenance:

Cleaning and caring for silicone toys is easy! You can use soap and water, a toy cleaner, 10% bleach solution, boil it for 3 minutes or throw it on the top rack of the dishwasher with no soap. Be sure to only use water based lube with your silicone toys. My toy came in a plastic bag, which I keep it in and store it in my dresser drawer.

Shipping/Packaging:

The shipping from Tantus is always pretty quick. Their shipping labels have been a hit or miss with me. I’ve received both review items and items I’ve purchased with Tantus on the logo, but most people aren’t going to know what Tantus is anyways. I have received packages from them without their logo as well.

Is it worth buying?

Absolutely 100% yes! It’s going to work for most people, it feels amazing and the color will be a surprise!

You can purchase the Echo Handle (grab bag version) from Tantus for $26.99!

JOYBOXX & PLAYTRAY ~ Review

jbptIMG_1312 (2)I was sent the Joyboxx & Playtray free of charge in exchange for an unbiased review by Passionate Playground!

Pros: Affordable, Easy to use, Discreet, Good quality, Hidden charging hole.

Cons: The lock, Only comes in 2 colors.

Rating ❤❤❤❤

The Joyboxx is a small, discreet, locking storage box perfect for sex toys! It measures 12x4x4 inches and weighs 26 oz. It can easily fit into a dresser drawer, under a bed or in a nightstand! While the box is pretty small, you can fit quite a bit of stuff in it! The top compartment is prefect for condoms, bullets, nipple clamps and sample packs of lube. The inside of the box you can easily fit average sized dildos, butt plugs, small bottles of lube, small vibrators, and charging cords! In the main compartment I was able to fit Crystal Delight’s Pineapple plug and Hello Kitty plug, Tantus Ryder, Exotic-Erotics small Elephant Trunk, Damn Average’s Jav, Cephalopod, and Tiny Tentacle!

All around the top of the box there are hidden ventilation holes, which help prevent bacteria growth and a hidden charging hole at the back of the box. The charging hole is so convenient for me! I’m always having to charge my We-Vibe Tango, but I don’t like to just have it laying out in the open, so I can charge it in the Joyboxx and not have to worry about someone seeing it. It’s a great feature for someone who has nosy roommates, parents or children!

The Playtray is an adult toy ‘coaster’. It measures 8×3 inches. It’s also a washing and drying rack for your toys. The thing that I find most useful about it is during my play time, I always use multiple toys, so when I switch I often just lay them on the bed and that gets lube and vag goo on my sheets. With the Playtray, I can lay the toys on that instead of my sheets and save myself time from not having to wash them as often! It helps prevent getting cat hair on my toys when I just lay them on my bed which I’m very grateful for! It can be used as a divider in the Joyboxx.

plaThey are both made out of a food-grade, BPA, PVC, and Phthalate free plastic. Since it’s made out of plastic, it’s going to be easy to clean. You can just use soap and water or you can throw it in the dishwasher! One of the great features on the Joyboxx is that it’s lockable! It does come with a lock, but the instructions on how to use it are in a different language and there are 2 sides of numbers, so I couldn’t figure it out. You can always buy a new lock to use with it. To lock and close the lid you: Close the main lid, and slide the child-resistant slider lock to the left. Notice there is a ‘speed bump’ under the hole. Your Joyboxx is now locked! It’s that easy to use!
