Indigo Tries the Blush Novelties Noje W3 Wand

9 out of 10
Pairs nicely with a Shirley Temple, to go. I chose something non-alcoholic because drinking and driving is singularly awful. Don’t do that. Also, this drink is enjoyed with poise and elegance.
This toy was sent to me by the kind folx at SheVibe in exchange for a fair and honest review. At time of publishing, this toy retails for about $36 (USD). You can purchase in Sage (green), Rose (pink), or Wisteria (purple). The wand attachments can be purchased here for about $8 (USD) at time of publishing.
The Noje W3 Wand and the Noje W3 Wand attachments are sitting in their boxes next to a packed green bag, a green sleeping bag and a bicycle helmet. There is further description of the toy in the next image and in the post.
I have a confession to make. I wasn’t excited about this wand when I requested it. I have been using my Doxy wands for a year now, and they are powerful and rumbly. I am the type of human who puts the wand on my clit now because I’m such a power slut. I just live my life in such an electrifying and ridiculous way that I was convinced the Noje would do nothing for me.
And then I left my house for two months and lived in a tent.
The Noje is a wand that is compact, running only about 5 inches long with a head that is about an inch in diameter. It comes in the standard plastic blister case, and it has a single button on the butt of it. When I turned it on, I found that it was fairly quiet, but more rumbly than I expected. Because of these things, I decided to take it with me on my ad-tent-ture.
Let me be clear. I was in no way glamping (glamour camping). I had four canvas walls, a canvas roof (reinforced with tarp), an air mattress, and one bin which held all the clothes I brought with me. The fanciest part of my living situation was that I got to hike up a hill to make it to the place I worked where there was a coffee pot. I could use that coffee pot to make ramen, which I did for just about every meal. My butt is extremely fantastic now, thank you for asking.
Because of the whole canvas walls thing, I didn’t bring any fancy sex toys. I had one butt plug, two toys I needed to review this summer, and my pure wand in case anyone on Tinder wanted to watch me squirt (which they did not, apparently). For the vibrator option, I brought the Noje Wand. Let me tell you, I am delighted that I made that choice.
The Noje wand looks very nonthreatening when you look at it. It comes in two pastel colors: sage (for us mountain lovers), wisteria (for English garden lovers), and rose (for general garden lovers). The head of it is simply white, and overall, it looks elegant. I would not have been embarrassed if someone found this toy while visiting because it looks so glamorous. Perhaps I was glamping a little after all. In order to turn the toy on, you have to hold that button for at least four to five seconds. This is another reason why I loved traveling with it. The idea of this toy turning on in a bag was somewhat preposterous thanks to that handy feature.

The button on the bottom of the toy is also white, and it does not glow, except when the toy is on or charging. When charging, the butt glows with a gently flashing light, and when it is charged, that light stays on. When the toy is on, the light stays on the whole time. Now, the light on the butt is brighter than I would prefer. I was afraid that my camp neighbors could see all the outlines when I used this toy. However, this use as an indicator is simple and elegant, just like the wand itself. I love that it was easy to figure out and I never had to pick up the manual or box. Additionally, the charging cord is connected with magnets, which I still think is cool and no one will convince me otherwise. It makes up for the toy having a non-universal charger, which I know some people hate.
So how does the toy feel in use? Well, I will admit this. If I stayed home and always had my Doxy wands available, I wouldn’t use this toy very often. It’s not as powerful as my clit enjoys, and the options available get me off harder and faster. It’s a standard mini wand, nothing special. It’s got 5 different speeds (which all felt pretty good) and 5 rhythms (which I never touch because I’m a lazy reviewer and I know those will not get me off ever). These are all cycled through with the one button, which is standard.
You know what? I don’t remember this wand promising me anything special. It is built to be travel-sized and used during travel. As a travel toy, this wand excels for me. It’s on par with my favorite bullet from Fun Factory, which is in my safer sex kit for a reason. I love how it looks and how it feels in a travel situation. It stays off when I want it to, and it turns on when I wanted it. Based on my masturbation times and how long between charges while I was gone, I would say the battery lasts about four hours, which is really good for a travel toy.
This toy was sent to me with two mini wand attachments to use with it, which really changed the experience for me. The head of the wand on it’s own is lovely, but the two attachments added some variety, which I felt elevated this toy from an 8 to a 9.
The Noje W3 Wand is leaning against the sleeping bag, and the wand attachments are sitting beside it. They are all out of the box and the attachments are clean and white.
The first head was deemed The Hugger because it had two hard nubs that extended and it sort of hugs the clit. I enjoyed this attachment the most because it allowed me to use a lot of pressure, which I need to get off. I also loved how it felt on my clit. The dual heads made me feel surrounded. At first, it was a little shocking and it felt like my clit couldn’t get away. But after a minute, I found just the right angle to get off. It was a great orgasm.
The other head is extremely different. It was called The Flicker one side of this head has a thin piece of silicone sticking out that is roughly disk shaped. It shakes when the wand is on and creates a delightful flap that felt great for a tease. I used it to get warmed up and I could place it on my clit, hood or anywhere around my labia to help get the blood flowing. The other side that doesn’t have that flapping disc (which is the name of my new 90s nostalgia band by the way) has a ball of silicone the size of a marble. That little ball is the side I use for pressure. After I’m warmed up, I can jam that into my clit and get off. It doesn’t feel quite as good as The Hugger, but it’s still good.
All in all, this toy is really solid. I will continue to bring it on my travels, and I will continue to use it in canvas homes, truck stops, and many hotel rooms. I thoroughly enjoy having an elegant and simple wand to use when I’m away.
This toy was sent to me by the kind folx at SheVibe in exchange for a fair and honest review. At time of publishing, this toy retails for about $36 (USD). You can purchase in Sage (green), Rose (pink), or Wisteria (purple). The wand attachments can be purchased here for about $8 (USD) at time of publishing.

Indigo Tries the Sola Sync!

8 out of 10
Pairs nicely with a Cape Cod (vodka and cranberry). It is smooth, and a little sour. But it’s basic and easy to drink.
This toy was sent to my by my friends at Shevibe.com! It retails for about 123 USD at time of posting, and you can find it here!
A large box sits on a chair. The front of it opens out and reveals the Sola Sync. It is a purple wand with an angle in the handle. It has chrome trim and a small circular remote is beside it in the box.
The Sola Sync has been on my radar for almost a year now. I was desperate to try one when I saw them at Woodhull last year. I loved the way the handle curved and it looked like it would be amazing for someone who has arthritis or possibly carpel tunnel. I loved the color of purple it was, and the sleek lines.
So when I Shevibe offered it to me, I was delighted to accept. I love wand vibrators and I was thoroughly expecting this one to be powerful and easy to use. That angle was going to happen immediately like magic, and I was going to have so many orgasms.
When the Sync arrived, I was surprised buy how big it was. Even though I had handled it in person, the photos online made it seem so dainty and refined. When I pulled it out of the box, I was surprised that it was about the length and width of my forearm. I was even more excited about it because somehow, size equated to power in my brain. I was wrong on that count, however.
The Sync costs over $100, which all seems to go into the design and the box. When I did unbox this toy, I immediately threw away the packaging because it was just too much. I did not want all that clutter in my already crowded toy area. However, if this is the one wand vibe you own, that box would be extremely nice to keep the Sync in. This fact does not escape me, as I am aware of my reviewer status, and thus my reviewer bias. However, it does feel like a bit much for this toy.
Though I have some form of nerve damage in my wrists, which sometimes acts up around weird angles and weights, I do not have arthritis, or diagnosed carpel tunnel (though at one point, I thought that is what I had). As a result, I’m going to try and talk about this toy with these caveats in mind.
A purple box sits on a chair. On top is the Sola Sync, with a white charging cable, the remote and a white storage bag.You see, I love the angle and the sleek look of this toy, but it isn’t great for me. As I hinted above, the power of this toy is someone lack-luster. It is not buzzy in my opinion, but it isn’t a very powerful rumble. I am, however a power slut. So if you find that toys are too powerful for you or just right, this toy would be great for you. I really wanted to love using it, but it’s so weak that I need to jam it into my clit in order to orgasm. That requires me grabbing the top of the toy, and negates that whole cool handle thing. If I used the handle, I feel like the wand will break in half under my strength. So I am more careful with this than perhaps I need to be. One day, I hope to use a toy that is L-shaped and I just jam the short side into my clit and pull up on the long side for that sweet pressure I need. But alas, the Sync is not that dream toy.
Additionally, I found the remote to be unnecessary for me. I don’t understand why one would need the remote because the handle is so long. I personally used the remote once for testing and then never used it again. However, I realize that I may be discounting someone’s disability because I don’t have that perspective. So with that complaint made, I am glad that the remote exists for those who might need it.
Now, the charging port was another small complaint I had. The actual plug-in part is so long and thin, I’m afraid I’m going to break it every time I try to charge the thing. If this toy is built with someone who has wrist or hand issues, having a shorter or entirely different charging port would probably be a good idea. I also feel like I’m breaking the silicone skin every time I stick the plug in there because it’s so tight of a fit (euphemism intended).
The Sync charged in just under two hours for me, and it never ran out of juice, so it goes for at least four hours (estimating off my average wanking time and how long I had it while I was at home). This is a huge point in favor of this toy. This along with the very refreshing design, and the fancy box are what I feel makes the price tag so high.
Overall, I really like the sync for someone’s first wand, except for the very high price point. It’s not too powerful, but I feel like it has a lack of thought of certain aspects that are vital, especially when taking into account the shape of the toy and what it seems built for. If they made the motor more powerful (or perhaps a corded version)

Indigo Tries Two Doxys!

9.5 out of 10 for the Die Cast.
10 out of 10 for the III (Smol).
Bonus Points! If you like rumbly, you’ll enjoy both of them!
Pairs well with a bourbon on the rocks. I would recommend Buffalo Trace. It’s been a favorite in my family for years!
Buy the Die Cast from my friends at Peepshow Toys or my friends at Betty’s Toybox! The III (Smol) will be released Fall 2017!
So the Doxy Die Cast has been reviewed a number of times, but mostly by folks who are married to (or have at least experienced) the classic Magic Wand Original. I came to the Die Cast as my first wand. I’ve never really experienced the power of a wand on my vulva, and so I was under-prepared for the wand effect, but hoo boy am I’m glad about getting one. I received the Smol and the Die Cast at the same time, but I’m starting with the Die Cast because it’s actually released and some folks might know it better.

A shiny red wand sits in a foam case with a zipper. There is a protective paper covering over the head.
This fancy case makes me croon though.

So the Die Cast is a wonderful wand toy. It costs about $200, which I realize is a steep price tag. However, this toy is really the height of luxury. The first thing I noticed was this huge case, which is a lovely matte grey and it unzips to reveal a perfect foam bed with the shiny Doxy laying inside. It’s cord is bundled at one end. It’s perfectly buffed into a shine. The head is large and ready to be rumbly. And did I mention that it’s really shiny?
Story Time! So I plug it in, and turn it on. There’s a god awful noise, and the head starts spinning and vibrating. My partner and I look at each other horrified, and I shove it onto my vulva to silence it. Success! It’s a manageable sound level and it feels great! However, that spinning does come with an unfortunate tendency to roll out of my labia. Byeeee?
As it turns out, that spinning is a defect, and I got a new one from Doxy with much apology! They are super cool about that!
Later addition: A lot of folks have had this fault happen in their Doxy originals, as well as the Die Cast. There are a few folks who are writing about/mentioning these. I hope to link to them once those posts are published. For me, this is a problem within the company, not necessarily for the consumer because they have replaced it every time, as far as I know.
Two wands sit on a teal bedspread. One is red, the other is black. They are both sparkly.
Black one is the defunct one. The new one is shiny slut red. Much like my aesthetic.

Once I got the new one, I was really ready to test this toy for real. I usually like a lot of pressure on my vulva. I enthusiastically put the Die Cast on my labia and immediately took it off. I would not recommend doing that unless you try it somewhere else first. If I put this thing on my pubic mons, I can feel the vibrations through my taint. Soooooo that’s a thing, alright? Instead of putting this directly on my labia like I would with almost any other vibrator, I am more than happy to let this sit on my mons and vibrate there until I orgasm.
The power of the Doxy is never in question. But what else is good about this wand?
There’s a steady mode, if you press the power button quickly, it turns on steady and the plus and minus buttons adjust the power. However, if you hold the power button, it turns into tease mode. Tease mode cycles quickly through all speeds in a sort of wave up pattern. The plus and minus buttons speed it up or slow it down. I rarely use patterns of any kind, but I actually really like this pattern. I think the Doxy is powerful enough that if I leave this pattern around the middle, my vulva has just enough time to breath between high points. I actually orgasmed from this! I was rather impressed, given my history.
So the large Doxy is definitely my jam. It’s rumbly and big and it makes me orgasm in like…no seconds. Great for partner play, and forced orgasm!
A red Doxy wand sits on a teal bedspread. Beside, a chrome wand about half the size sits.
See it’s wee little baby face?! It’s so cute!

So the how does the Smol compare?
Well, for the first note, the small is somewhat less powerful? I don’t know if I can accurately say that. The strength of the vibrations may be the same, but the size concentrates it a bit more, so it be used (by me at least) for some more localized stimulation. I actually managed to hold the Smol closer to my clit without feeling overwhelmed or hurting. Was it pleasant? Not exactly. It was closer to painfully erotic. Like a clothespin or other sexy pain tool. I will do this regularly to get off, honestly. Because I’m myself. Huzzah!
It’s also less cumbersome than the Die Cast. I felt that with the Smol, I could use it during partnered sex with a little less of a struggle. When using either wand this way, the power levels were well-dispersed and did not get dampened. It was especially nice because my partner could feel it lightly on his penis (which is fairly sensitive) and it helped us both reach a great climax.
A Doxy III sits on the bed. It's chrome finish with a black head.
The Smol comes with all the same features as the Die Cast, but in a travel-sized package (well, it’s still wall-powered, but it’s much more easily moved). Since I got this pre-release, I didn’t get a case with it, but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t come with one. We will have to wait for the release and find out!
In conclusion, I feel like the Die Cast and the Smol are both luxurious wands. The difference in rating comes down to price. Since the Smol isn’t released, I don’t know the price. The $200 price tag for the Die Cast is really worth it, but I know not everyone can afford it. Additionally, the Smol is easier to move around, and gives the impression that it’s more portable despite having a cord. However, the Die Cast gives me that feeling of settling in for a really nice night at home, with or without a partner.
And they are both so shiny!
