Like most girls, I’m a girl who is obsessed with clit vibes. I feel like you can never have too many, and  I’m always looking for the best one out there. Or at least something that’s better than what I already consider to be the best clit vibe out there. When I first saw the Envy line, I was super excited to see they had a small version. It wasn’t as small as I was expecting it to be, and I actually would have preferred something a bit smaller. I’ve never owned a Jopen product before, so I had high hopes for this One. I’m always reading great things about their power and silicone material, and with such a high price tag, I would expect nothing less than great.

Material:

The entire Envy line by Jopen is made of silicone; an odorless, non-porous, and hypoallergenic material. If your toy has a faint smell to it upon arrival, it’s due to the packaging it comes in. Mine had a very faint smell to it but it went away completely once I washed it. The silicone material is smooth but it’s not buttery smooth like some of my other silicone toys (that I love). This silicone has a small drag to it, enough so that I like to add a small amount of water-based lubricant. Make sure that you only use this toy with a water-based lubricant, or a high quality silicone lubricant that you know won’t react to the material. I strongly suggest spot testing. There is also a seam along the sides of the toy but they can’t be felt or noticed during use, so it’s no big deal. It does have the tendency to collect lint, but I’ve had toys that are way worse, so this one isn’t so bad.

Charging:

The Envy One comes with a USB charger. You can either charge it on your computer or you can use a USB charging adapter that plugs in the wall. The charging port is located at the bottom of the toy, and it has the same kind of plug as a pair of headphones/ear buds, so it’s very easy to figure out.

The Envy One takes 2.5 hours to come to a complete charge. With a complete charge, you’re supposed to get 4.5 hours of play time on low speed, and 2 hours of play time on high speed. I can say that the batter did last two hours on the highest setting, but I did notice it start to weaken as time went by.

My charging process did not go very smooth. When I plugged-in the Envy One, a red light came on but when I looked over at it about 5 minutes later, the toy was not lit up all. I unplugged it and then plugged it back in and the light came back on again. Again, I looked over at it and the light turned off but I just let sit on the charger for a couple hours anyway. After a couple of hours passed, my toy had appeared to be fully charged. I was pretty annoyed by the light issue. It had me wondering if it was even charging, and also unsure of when it was done charging.

Shape/Size:

The Envy One is a small sized vibrator with a tapered tip that is good for delivering pin-pointed vibrations. Even though it’s a small vibrator, I still think it’s a bit on the bulky side. I personally wish it was a tad slimmer and shorter. It resembles the very popular We-Vibe Salsa, except the Envy is longer, wider, and covered in silicone.

The Envy One measures in at 4.5 inches long and 1.25 inches in diameter. It’s big enough that you could use it as a teaser to tease the vaginal opening, and also for some shallow insertion but the size is best for clitoral and external stimulation.

Controls/Functions:

The Envy One comes programmed with 7 functions, and you adjust the speeds in increments from low to high. There are two buttons on the bottom of the toy that controls everything.  One of the buttons has the letter F on it. That button scrolls through the 7 different vibration patterns. The other button powers the toy on and off and increases the vibration intensity. It only takes one press of the blank button to turn the toy off, so it’s very easy to accidentally turn it off during use. On the plus side, when you turn it back on it takes you right back to where you left off. Honestly, it took me a little bit to figure out how to work this thing. It can be a little tricky at first.

Vibrations:

The vibrations on this toy are strong, but they don’t really travel that well through the silicone. I would say that the silicone lowers the actual potential that this toy has. The vibrations are the strongest and most rumbly right after charging it. They weaken pretty quickly, and they also weaken when applying pressure. I’m someone who applies a lot of pressure, so that was definitely an issue for me.

The vibrations can be felt through the entire toy but they’re strongest at the tip. After about 20 minutes the vibrations did start to become slightly finger numbing. Again, I think that could have something to do with the way the silicone distributes the vibrations. I was very impressed with the noise level. You can hear a slight rattle when it’s on but I doubt anybody in a separate room would hear it.

Keeping It Safe / Packaging:

The Envy One comes packaged in a really nice box that is perfect for storing your toy inside of, but I was really surprised that a storage pouch wasn’t included. Even if the box is good for storing your toy at home, it’s nice to have a pouch for it in case you want to travel with it. The Envy One is definitely travel friendly, so I would recommend finding a pouch to store it in if you take it traveling with you. The packaging comes with some information on the back, and there is also a small pamphlet included inside the box.

Keeping It Clean:

The Envy One is 100% waterproof and very easy to clean. You’re not able to boil it or run it through the dishwasher, so you have to wash it in warm water with a mild soap or a toy cleaner of your choice.

My Experience:

Like I said before, I had high hopes for my Envy One. Unfortunately it wasn’t all I was expecting it to be. The first problem I had was the charging issue. Even though the toy seems to charge perfectly fine, the light indicator is all kinds of jacked-up. My second issue was how hot it started to get while I was using it. About 15-20 minutes into my playtime, I could feel the heat from the toy warming up my vagina. It doesn’t burn you or anything, but it is very noticeable and can start to feel uncomfortable. I honestly wouldn’t spend the $100 range asking price that these things are going for. My Salsa and my Tango are cheaper than that, and I like those way better.
