The glass wand is incredibly smooth overall, though the small vine design overlay has a matte texture to it. There's no scent nor taste on it's own. It becomes incredibly slick with the use of a small amount of lube, so exercise moderation as far as that goes.
I think this wand is incredibly gorgeous to look at, like every other glass toy I've glanced at previously. The fairly slender girth (approximately 1" in diameter) will make this comfortable to use, even for newer users. I would say the insertable length is about 4" since you need to be able to hold onto something, and this toy does indeed get very slippery when wet. One end has a fairly prominent rounded head, which narrows and flows to another two slightly less defined bulges. The other end, has a smooth shaft, with a very gently curved tip.
When using the side with the curvaceous bulges along it, you most definitely can feel the differing widths rubbing against you, which feels quite nice. The hardness and curvature of the wand allows you to pin point where you want pressure/sensation in a very direct manner as well. The slightly hooked end of the other side, can almost mimic the curved finger of a partner, providing another fun type of feeling.
The fantastic nature of glass toys is that they are incredibly easy to clean. You can pop it in the dish washer, you can (carefully) put it in incredibly hot water, it doesn't maintain any odor from anything you might use to clean it, nor any taste. You can use it with any lube that you want too, which is awesome. I store this toy in a bedside drawer, on top of a clean folded towel along with some of my other toys. Oh! You can also wash it with just soap and water as well :)
The oh so pretty wand came in a white box, with a translucent top to display the item inside and along one side is an enlarged image of the toy. While I'd say it isn't incredibly blatant packaging, it isn't the most subtle either, since it flat out says "Glass G Spot Wand" on the front. The back describes the toy, as well as a descriptor of some methods to clean it. I wouldn't say the flip top with flaps box is very good for storage. It's a bit bulky in comparison to the relatively petite size of the wand.
I wanted to like this wand so much. It's beautiful, it's easy to care for, and I don't have to worry about having batteries. When I first set about using it, I decided to watch some smut, play with my vibrator, and have an orgasm or two before trying it so that I would better be able to find my g-spot. After doing those preliminaries, and feeling with my fingers I know I can find it, considering the contrast in texture/feel from the rest of the inside of myself. However, with either end, from different angles, different positions, I cannot for the life of me find a pleasing way to stimulate my own g-spot. Incredibly frustrating, and over the period of times that I've tried using the wand again, I still am not able to find a way to please my body with it.
