Shibari Mini Halo 20x Review

Clitoral vibrators come in all shapes and sizes, with that being said, wand vibrators are quite popular in the sex toy market. The Shibari Mini Halo 20x is a great option for those women looking for a smaller wand, that gets decently strong, at a good price-point. I don’t want to hoot and holler about this wand for the fact that there are tons of other options when it comes to wand vibrators, but the reviews were pretty overwhelming so I decided to give it a look and see what all the fuss was about.

First Impression

When taking it out of the box the smaller shape and size was actually something I was impressed with. A lot of wands these days are huge, chunky, heavy to use by yourself after some time, and they get in the way if you want to use it with a partner. The Mini Halo was a perfect size to fit in the palm of your hand so that you can get ultimate control when using it. It also is more compact making it easier to use with a partner, especially when it comes to reaching between the two of you to be able to use the toy while having intercourse, as well as foreplay.

It’s also a lot more lightweight than some of the others, making it great to use by yourself for however long you may need. One of the biggest advantages to this toy over something like the Hitachi Magic Wand is that since it’s so small its extremely portable. The perfect size to fit in a purse, or a small overnight bag to bring with you wherever you would like!

The design was much more pleasant than some of the other wands out now-a-days. The high grade silicone completely encases the vibrator giving it a really soft silky feel. Definitely the material I would recommend for a vibrator whether you’re using it clitorally or internally just for the fact that it is extremely sanitary, and easy to clean.

It’s also a lot safer when it comes to women with sensitive skin. Just for the fact that jelly materials, as well as rubber, can get little knicks and tears, and can harvest bacteria that can throw of your PH balance and give you things like UTI’s and yeast infections. The silicone material is much more stable product that doesn’t tear and break as easily as some of the other materials will – it’s very strong and hypoallergenic.

Excellent Power

This vibe is going to be more of a higher zingy vibration, it can get pretty powerful for how small it is. Typically with vibrators like this they don’t have much when it comes to lower vibration settings. The high zingy vibration is great when it comes to a lot of power and strong vibration. The only thing with that is if you like a less intense vibration, and want something that will have great low intensity settings as well as the really powerful ones I would suggest checking out something like the We-Vibe Touch or JimmyJane Form 5. They have a power that specializes in the lower grumbly vibraton – they might work better for what you’re looking for.

This vibrator has 20 different vibration settings including speeds and pulsing sensations that can make your toy more fun, for a longer amount of time. Apart from missing the lower setting that would really make this vibrator a home run, it makes up for it with the ability to change the settings to really find what you like best. Something I really love about this toy is that you can control the vibration strength during each type of vibration setting. So if you find a pulsing setting that you really like – you can control the intensity. If you want it to be a little slower on the “wave” setting, but then make the vibration intensity way more intense right before you orgasm – you can!

It will make this vibrator way more exciting for you if you can get past in your mind just masturbating to get off. With the wand style vibrators it’s easy to really find out what you like to use it on – whether it be your clitoris, nipples, or just teasing internally a little. Spend some time with yourself with this toy so you can really find out what you like.

The strongest point of vibration is going to be at the tip. A small downside to this vibrator is that on the highest intensity settings it can be known to vibrate through the handle a little bit. Most wands will do this- especially one’s like the Hitachi Magic Wand because of how powerful they can get. It can be a little distracting but not too bad.

Features

  • It’s not a very loud vibrator, but its not exactly whisper quiet either.

  • Affordable. Definitely one of the cheaper rechargeable vibrators that I have seen that still gets pretty intense when it comes to power.
  • Water resistant – can be used in the shower but definitely don’t submerge it in any water.

Charging

Charging your vibrator is very important when it comes to the longevity of your toy. When you charge it for the first time you want to give it a good 3 hour charge or so and then take it off the charger. This first charge is going to set the life of your battery so be careful to not leave it on any longer than 3 hours. Every time after that first initial charge you want to charge it for about an hour or two and then take it off the charger. Don’t leave any rechargeable toys on the charger – they tend to rely on that charge so that when you go to take them off they will only stay charged for about 30 mins before having to return it back to the charging station.

This is a problem a lot of people have when buying rechargeable toys because nobody informed them when making their purchase. Do NOT leave your toy on the charger all day. 1st time- about 4 hours, every time after the initial charge 1-2 hours and then take it off the charger.

Lubricant and Toy Cleaner

Since this toy is wrapped in silicone material it is very important to make sure you use water-based lubricant with it. If you use silicone based lubricant, or even any type of oils (including coconut oil), you will find it will bind the the silicone material of the toy and in the end it will almost look like your vibrator is melting.It’s not good for your toy, or the inside of your body to use these together, Jo Toy Cleanerso stick to a water-based lubricant.

Toy cleaner is also something I suggest whenever you buy a toy. It’s a foaming antibacterial non-alcohol cleaner that will make sure to get into the nooks and crannies of your vibrator to ensure it’s clean without ruining the material. Most soaps at home will have alcohol in them which is known to dry out the material on your toys, which can create little micro tears that can harvest bacteria. You want a good alcohol-free soap that is still antibacterial to ensure your toy is as clean as possible when you store it until next time. I always suggest Jo Foaming Toy Cleaner because I think it’s the best, and works like a charm every time.

Final Thoughts

Overall the Shibari Mini Halo 20x is an excellent budget friendly option for those of you looking for a higher zingy vibrator that has some impressive power. Although I wouldn’t call this the best wand shaped vibe around, the price-point makes this a totally worthy competitor in this space where each toy is trial and error when trying to find the perfect one for you. Don’t expect this vibrator to last you years, but get excited by the prospect of a slicker, more compact way to have an orgasm without lugging around your Hitachi Magic Wand.
