Toy Review: The Leaf+ Fresh+ Vibrator

The Leaf+ Fresh+ seems almost like a device straight out of the fairy tale; a hand-sized, purple leaf with the ability to provoke extreme pleasure from those who chose to indulge in it. It sounds so whimsical that it might easily be found in the realms of fantasy novels or kinky Dungeons & Dragons roleplay (involving druids and wood elves, almost certainly).

In reality the Fresh+ is the brainchild of BMS Factory—who released the Leaf+ range as an eco-friendly line of sex toys (and successor to the original Leaf line) inspired by “nature’s leaves at the end of a season”.

As the Fresh+ is produced by BMS Factory, and uses the same Powerbullet technology that is contained within the PalmPower, I was excited to try this leafy creation. But did the Fresh+ live up to its fairy tale exterior, or does it fail to captivate the imagination?

Desires of the I.D.

The Fresh+ was provided to me by Desires of the I.D in exchange for an honest review.

Desires of the I.D. specializes in luxury brands—such as Lelo, Je Joue, and We-Vibe—and stock a wide variety of delectable products, from The Leaf+ Fresh+, to the nJoy Pure Wand, to one of my all-time favourites, the Minna Limon (in Teal!).

The owner of Desires of the I.D. is one of the friendliest people I’ve had the good pleasure of talking to, and is always incredibly accommodating. I think it’s fair to say that customer satisfaction is a high priority for Desires of the I.D. and it really shows.

My package arrived quickly and was gift-wrapped in delicate black tissue paper, held together with a custom sticker.

Such consideration and attention to detail is yet another reason why I personally love Desires of the I.D. and would highly recommend them.

The Leaf+ Fresh+

The Leaf+ Fresh+ (that’s an excessive amount of plusses, I know) is part of the Leaf+ line—which markets itself as a revolutionary line of full-silicone, eco-friendly sex toys. In honour of that manifesto the Fresh+ is USB rechargeable, comes in a durable recyclable box, and with a canvas storage bag.

In terms of its full-silicone design, the Fresh+ is covered top-to-bottom in relatively seamless premium silicone. This silicone has a soft, powdery texture which gives is a delicate feel, while still allowing some grip to it. When lubricant is applied, the Fresh+ glides into place and gently caresses the intimate area of choice. Despite the soft feel of the silicone the Fresh+ is actually quite a firm toy, having very little flexibility or give. This works well for the Fresh+

The Fresh+ (like every toy in the Leaf+ range) is inspired by nature. This natural inspiration coupled with the toy’s full-silicone body means that every single curve and contour of the Fresh+ can be explored for potential pleasure.

The Fresh+ can be used in a myriad of ways.

This is a great design choice that essentially allows you to get different forms of pleasure out of the same toy. You can, for example, use the very tip for precise, pin-point stimulation, you can press it down flat for firmer, more dispersed stimulation, or you can use the curved sides for a more moulded experience. The Fresh+ does have its limits, of course—the lower part of the vibrator, closer to the tip, is where you get the strongest vibrations, which can limit play—but the Fresh+ still manages a commendable range of enjoyment.

The Fresh+ has 5 different modes of vibration—3 consistent speeds of differing intensity and then two patterns—all of which are controlled by a single button.. These two patterns are a wave and a pulse and they do the job well enough, but they may not enamour someone who likes more patterns and do little for me (as I generally see patterns as a nuisance).

Leaf+ claims that the Fresh+ is the strongest of the range, and the Fresh+ does deliver a commendable amount of strength. When you turn this toy on and place it on a flat surface it eagerly bounces along like a jumping bean—scurrying off in an erratic and energetic way. And when applied to pleasure points this decisive rumble can still be felt.

The Fresh+ is deliciously rumbly and retains its rumbly sensation even on the highest setting. However, while this toy’s vibrations are more than satisfactory, they don’t resonate as much as some do.

The Fresh+ keeps its vibrations quite surface-level, never quite getting as deep as something like the We-Vibe Touch, for example, instead keeping it close to the area of stimulation. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing, as not everyone likes dispersed vibrations, but if resonance is a complete and utter must have for you then the Fresh+ might just fall short of the mark.

I’d like to say this is the only downside to the Fresh+ but, naturally, every toy has its pros and cons (even the naturalistic ones).

The Fresh+ may satisfy some people, but not all.
The Fresh+ may satisfy some people, but not all.

While the Fresh+ does sport a formidable power for its size, this toy still isn’t the most powerful toy out there and is easily beaten in strength by its cousin, the PalmPower. So, if you’re a die-hard power queen, then the Fresh+ might leave you craving more (though it’s worth noting that I consider myself a power queen and could still have intense orgasms with this toy).

Because the Fresh+ is 100% waterproof, to charge it you have to push the charger firmly into the charge connector provided. While I had no problem with this I understand that some people don’t like handling their toys in too rough a manner, so this may leave a few people uncomfortable or uncertain.

The Fresh+ also has a single-button controller (i’ve already been through why this is annoying) and is somewhat noisy (so not wholly discreet).

And, lastly, the Fresh+ has a very unique shape and, while I do think it’s very versatile, this shape will not work for everybody. Keep in mind your preferences when considering the Fresh+. If you don’t think it will work then there’s a whole selection of Leaf+ vibrators to choose from.

Final Thoughts

In many ways I see the Leaf+ Fresh+ as the type of toy that can bridge the gap between vibrators.

If you want something stronger than the average handheld vibe but not PalmPower strong, rumbly but not too deeply dispersed, and pin-point but also broad when needed, then the Fresh+ has got you covered.

It’s not going to bring down the house for power queens, and those who need a rumble that hits a bit deeper may not be wholly satisfied, but if you’re an eco-friendly Goldilocks then the Fresh+ might be just the right device to help you fulfil your fantasies.

Recommend to:

People who like versatile stimulation.

People who like pin-point stimulation.

People who crave rumbly vibrations.

Do not Recommend to:

People who crave depth of vibration.

People who need extreme power.

People who prefer buzzy vibrations.
