I got me some luxury in a box and it’s called a Smart Wand.

 

“God, I need to freaking relax!”

I looked in the mirror and spit out those words so forcefully at my reflection a couple weeks ago.  My husband was gone on a trip, my preschooler was bouncing off the walls, and my high need baby was screaming in the other room because he refuses to be put down or left alone ever.  I took a deep breath in and pulled my shoulders back down from my ears… and that was it.  That was all I got – those few seconds in the bathroom while my baby screamed and my older son drummed on the wall, beckoning me to come out.

It was like the Universe knew I was on the verge of a stroke, because the very next day (not kidding) I got a knock on my door and this was there:

 

You’re wondering what that is, aren’t you?

I knew what it was.  It was the Smart Wand body massager from Lelo.com.

I waited until the kids were asleep, and then I plopped myself down on the living room floor and opened it.  It looked like luxury in a box, people.

 

 

It was like opening a box of gourmet chocolates… except the only thing melting would be my tension, and I wouldn’t have to feel guilty in the morning.

It even smelled expensive and luxurious… and Swiss.

Yes I sniffed it.

After opening the box I felt like I was a new member of some secret society.  It was packaged so beautifully, and that little gold pin… I just know I’m supposed to pin it on my sweater so other members of the secret society can recognize me.

The wand itself was shaped so perfectly… easy to hold, and reaches everywhere.

As if on cue, my left shoulder started to throb – it had paid a hefty price having to hold my youngest son these past eleven months.  I thumbed through the instructions and noticed it had to be charged for a couple hours before I could use it.  I put it aside, vowing to charge and use it the next day.

Of course, that didn’t happen.  I was too busy, you know – being stressed out.

It wasn’t until a full week later that I was able to take some time for myself.

I tried it and

Oh.

My.

God.

I have used it every day since.

At first I didn’t think I would be into the whole vibration thing as I enjoy more of a kneading-type massage.  However, the relaxation of my left shoulder afterward has converted me.  I think one of the main reasons is the Sense Touch technology.  Instead of applying maximum stimulation to the muscles from the start, the massage strength will build after it comes into contact with the skin.  It’s got built in sensors – that’s why it’s “smart”.

You can also use it with a water-based massage solution, but I didn’t need to.  Honestly, whatever grade of silicone they made it out of feels like the top of my baby’s head.  The Smart Wand glided effortlessly across my skin.

If you want to overachieve on your relaxation you can also use it in a warm bath.  What?  A bath?  Yes, my friends.  The Smart Wand is waterproof.

I have since used my Smart Wand for a few minutes every night before I curl up to sleep.  For just a few minutes each day, it’s been nice to feel relaxed – to feel pampered.

The Smart Wand by LELO is my new best friend.

It’s luxury in a box.

It’s better than chocolates.

 

PS-  Because I love you and think you deserve some luxury, and because LELO is nice, they are going to give one of you a medium sized one of these.

  3. Um, can I have it WITH a box of chocolates?

  4. I would get the black, nice and sleek! To relax I take a bath whenever possible, but since we don’t have one at home that becomes harder.

    Love the fancy white!

    I stretch and do some yoga almost every night before bed, can’t unwind without it!

  10. Autumn M.P. says:

    P.S. but of course I follow you on twitter!

  11. Suddenly, my nagging neck/shoulder injury from a few years ago flares UP as I see this WONDERFUL device that could help me with the brutal nag, nag, nag of tightness.

    SO PLEASE. Pick me! I want you. HA.

  12. And I do follow you on Twitter.

    As for relaxing, I have rice bag that I heat up. Then, I kick back in my favorite worn recliner with my little dog Fred on my lap. It is bliss – of course – if I have Lindt chocolate near. Even better!

  13. You sure that’s a massager? ;)

    I would want the black. Very nice. Perfect for relaxing in bed with a book.

  16. The black one is soooo elegant.

    Nothing better than a hot bath when I want to relax – bet this would be a great addition!

    I would love the smart wand in Plum

  18. The plum version looks utterly fantastic. When I want to relax, I usually watch anime or masturbate…or both ;)

    I already follow Lelo on twitter (that’s how I got here!) but I was wondering if this was US only or if anyone can enter?

    PS your opinions on this wand are adorable and made me smile!

    I follow Lelo already..followed mommynanibooboo and I tweets the link from @lobbydiva101….can’t you tell I’m eager to win lol. ;)

  20. Relaxation? What’s that? Mostly I watch Law & Order. Sometimes I go sit in a steam sauna and nap. Usually it’s just Law & Order though.

  22. Cindy says:

    I like the purple. As for relaxation – I do deep breathing and try to relax my muscles every night.

  23. I would like whatever color would bring my shoulders down from my ears. My shoulders don’t make pretty earrings. but fine, if I had to pick, purple, or plum, or whatever pretty color that is.

  24. For my wife, who needs to lose the stress from 3 kids and job and…ME. Her (rare) relaxation indulgence is a long hot bath

    She would like purple

    And Ian following LELO and MommyNaniBooboo on the twitter.

    Thanks

  25. Jack Collinson says:

    It would have to be the white one. My wife and I relax together by using our Lelo Gigi and Siri and they’re both fantastic. Nothing better for me than sitting back watching her relax with her favorite toy knowing what’s coming shortly is great!

    I’ve just become a follower of you & have followed the fantastic Lelo for a while.

    Retweet sent too.

    Fingers crossed,

    Jack x

  26. Miss Jackson says:

    Sleep is all I get to do to relax. That, and sometimes a glass of cheap wine before bed. I would be happy with any color, but mostly I’d be happy just to try this Smart Touch technology you so eloquently explained. I already follow Lelo on Twitter, now I’m following you, Mommynanibooboo. Thank you for this article, I see now I must eventually invest in one of these.

  27. Miss Jackson says:

    Just rt it. :)

  28. Danielle says:

    I really like the look of the black, but white looks pretty nice also. I usually read and listen to music to relax and get my mind off of things.

  29. Samantha says:

    I want the white, because I like my vibrator like I like my man. :P

  30. Samantha says:

    Following you on & Lelo on twitter. I’m @sammisaur.

  31. White is fine. Relax? What’s that?

  32. Following LELO. Check.

  33. Following your tweets…check.

  34. LOL tweeted…check.

  35. Now all my Facebook fiends think I’m, gay. Whoops. but check anyway.

  36. Purple, please. I deal with daily pain in my neck, shoulders and upper back. I started running this year and that has helped me blow off some tension, but I still feel fairly tight back there. This wand could really help me!
