Lelo Gigi 2 Deep Rose

 

Gigi 2 is the long anticipated successor to LELO’s Gigi G-spot vibrator. The original Gigi was very well liked, but was not fully waterproof and was considered to be a little lacking in the power department by some. The new and improved Gigi 2 is said to have 100% more power, along with a waterproof design and now comes in four color options instead of three.

Gigi’s short, curved shaft and flat head are designed to locate and provide direct stimulation to a woman’s G-spot. This toy lacks a flared base, so I would not recommend this toy for anal use.

This toy can be appreciated by any level of user. The small size makes this toy non-threatening to beginners, though some may not be keen on the flat head. Advanced users, especially G-spotting fans will appreciate the design and quality this toy offers.
 

Material

The shaft of Gigi 2 is made from LELO’s signature buttery smooth silicone, and the handle is formed out of ABS palstic. Silicone is 100% body-safe and non-porous, and it will hold up for a long time if you care for it properly. LELO’s silicone feels satiny to the touch and has virtually no drag when it’s dry, so it won’t pick up lint and hairs. There will be more of a drag when it’s wet, but a little bit of lubricant will take care of that.

Because this toy is silicone, make sure to use only water-based lubes with it. Silicone-based lubes can potentially react chemically to the silicone of the toy. This reaction can damage the material and ruin your toy, so it’s best to use only water-based lubricants.

I got my Gigi 2 in Deep Rose, which is not quite either pink or purple and almost has a glowy appearance in person. It’s very hard to capture in pictures, but it’s reminiscent of the magenta color of the Jopen Vanity line.
 

Design

The Gigi 2 has a total length of 6.5”, with 4.5” of it being insertable. The shaft has a circumference of 3” and the head measures about 4” around. If you look straight on at the head, it measures 1.5” tall and 1.25” wide.

Function

Lelo Gigi 2 Deep Rose

The Gigi is controlled by a 4-way control pad on its base. There are (+) and (-) buttons to control the intensity, and up and down arrows that toggle the modes. I do find that the control pad can be a little finicky and sometimes pressing the control pad won’t register, even though I’ll hear and feel a distinct click.

To turn the toy on, press the (+) button and Gigi 2 will start up at its lowest steady vibration which is barely a rumble. At this point you can increase the power, or you can use the up and down arrows to start exploring the patterns. Something that’s really nice about LELO toys is that you get a very wide range of intensity and you also get the opportunity to control the intensity, even while in the different modes.

The available modes are:
1. Steady vibration.
2. Slow pulses.
3. Medium pulses.
4. Rapid pulses.
5. Ramps (low to high, stop, low to high, stop…)
6. Quick rollercoaster (low to high to low..)
7. Slower, more pronounced rollercoaster.
8. Random mode (always my favorite)

To turn Gigi off, just press and hold the (-) button for a second or two.

The vibrations are decent and not buzzy, but unfortunately they don’t get very strong. Gigi feels like a solid 3 vrooms on the higher settings.
Gigi 2 is also fairly quiet, it’s almost silent on the lower level and only gets up to about 2 bees on the highest settings.
 

Cleaning

Gigi 2 is very easy to clean because it’s waterproof and doesn’t have any ridges or crazy texture. I like to take my toys to the sink and spray them down with toy cleaner and then rinse them off. You can also you soap and water, or toy wipes if you prefer. Since this toy is silicone, you can use a 10% bleach solution for sanitizing purposes as well.

There is a seam that runs around Gigi’s control pad, this area has the potential to collect fluids, so my advice would be to keep an eye on it.

Gigi’s charging port is located on the very bottom tip of the white handle. Like some other LELO toys, the charging port is completely open. LELO claims that the toy is still completely waterproof and that the uncovered port shouldn’t cause any issues. I still don’t like the idea of dust, lint and gunk being able to get in there. I’m personally not a fan of this feature and try to keep any fluids or debris away from it.

When you plug the charger into the Gigi’s base, the ring around the control pad will light up and flash to let you know it’s charging and the light will turn solid when it’s done.
 

Packaging

The Gigi 2 comes in the usual luxurious packaging that LELO offers. There will be an outer box that has the image of the toy and all the product information. Inside you’ll find a black box that is plain except for the LELO logo in the center. The lid lifts off the reveal the toy nestled in black foam. At one end of the box is a flap that lifts up to reveal the charger, lube sample, instruction manual, warranty card and info, along with a black satin drawstring storage pouch that measures 3.5” x 8.5”

 

My Experience

I had been curious about Gigi for a long time, but I had heard that the original was a bit underpowered. I patiently waited for a long time for the new and improved Gigi 2 to be released. Unfortunately I find myself a bit let down. I was hoping that the power would match that of the Mona 2, which is one of my favorite vibes. But I found that Gigi 2 on high felt more like Mona 2 on a medium level. The power is a bit lacking for me and I find myself needing just a little bit more power than Gigi 2 can give me. Gigi is plenty fine for a warm-up toy, especially because I love the super rumbly vibes on the lower settings, but it’s not able to get the whole job done.

I also find that Gigi’s size and shape are also misses for me. I have to fully insert Gigi and have to tilt the handle way back to get Gigi’s head up to my G-spot, but even then I still find that I can’t get the flat portion to fully make contact and give me the pressure I’m looking for. I have the Picobong Moka which has a similar design, but has a larger head and more dramatic curve to it, this design works much better for me.

As I mentioned, the size is also a little lacking for my taste and I’m not able to achieve any sort of feeling of fullness. Almost every time I’ve used Gigi I find that I get a little frustrated because I want just a little more and I end up grabbing my Mona 2 to satisfy that craving.

Of course these observations will vary from person to person depending on how deep set your G-spot is. If your G-spot is shallower, and not set far behind the pubic bone, then you might find that Gigi’s shape works really well for you.

For me Gigi 2 was a bit disappointing and couldn’t deliver the way that I hoped it would. But if you’re looking for a gentler toy in both size and strength, it could be right for you.

If you don’t think the Gigi 2 would quite do it for you, I highly recommend either the Mona 2 or Moka. They’re both great toys, and I would recommend Mona if you want G-spot stimulation via vibrations, and I’d recommend the Moka for those who want to so precise G-spotting.
