Oh Christmas tree, Oh Christmas tree, This ornament will delight me!

The Reflections Shimmer would be a gorgeous ornament on your Christmas tree, even if a bit heavy, a sexy dildo to masturbate with and a nice temperature toy. I am impressed with the uses, do wonder who is going to notice I have my dildo on my tree this year and am excited to use it again.
Great bumpy pattern.
Corded for ease of use.
A bit large.
No vibrations included.
Rating by reviewer:
extremely useful review


I have to admit, when I received this dildo I was a bit put off by the weight. It looks huge and I honestly thought it was aluminum. But no, it is glass, the weight feels good once you work it inside and it is a glass wand.

I enjoyed putting it in ice water for cool play, warm water for a heated experience and thought about this being a perfect Christmas tree ornament. The bumpy pattern was VERY pleasant!! I like this for a dildo, but added a vibrating cock ring with a good bullet for more sensations.

The only response I received from my husband was "Hell NO!!! He did enjoy watching me use this on myself, however.

Material / Texture

The Shimmer is a metallic glass dildo that has a safety cord attached for ease of use. I thought it was aluminum at first, but realized it was glass and could be very pleasant when paired with different water temperatures. There is no odor or taste to the dildo after it is cleansed for the first time.

I love the looks of this dildo. As a matter of fact, I am going to use it as an ornament on my Christmas tree. Then guess who gets the good present!!This is hard, smooth and has a gradient bumpy pattern. The bulb is large and round, and then it narrows down to form another bump and repeats the pattern twice. The base is a smaller rounded bump.

The texture felt amazing after I was warmed up enough to insert it, however I wish it was a bit smaller and then this would be my favorite dildo ever!
    • Bumpy
    • No odor
    • Not porous at all

Design / Shape / Size

The design made this dildo! The bumps were fantastic feeling, but did not allow me to squirt or get a full G-spot orgasm. The sensations were amazing and when I paired it with a vibrating cock ring and good bullet, it was heavenly. I did use a clitoral vibe to get the good hard orgasm I am used to and was screaming from the bumpy sensations internally.

The size is a bit large for beginners, is very full feeling but can be extremely satisfying if you are warmed up enough for penetration. The tip is about 1 3/4" diameter, neck 3/4", bumps 1 1/4", this repeats once. The base is about an inch. The cord fits nicely around a very large wrist.
    • Discreet look/design
    • Partner play
    • Whimsical / artistic


The bumpy pattern, polished metal look and glass material makes this a premium dildo. It is decorative enough to be used for ornamental purposes, is pleasant with mild temperature changes and has become one of my favorite toys.

I am a bit intimidated by the size, but have been working with it due to the bumpy pattern. The pattern feels amazing when thrusting. I need lube!!

When I attached a cock ring to it and inserted the Shimmer the feelings set me over the edge. The jelly ring kept the noise down and the glass distributed the vibrations perfectly.
    • Easy to use

Care and Maintenance

The Shimmer is about 7 inches of useable glass dildo. It has a polished metal look and does weigh in at about 9 oz. It is a bit weighty.

It is very easily cleaned with soap and water, toy sanitizer, is able to be disinfected with boiling water so sharing is an option.

The Shimmer is compatible with silicone, water and oil lubricants. I store mine in a padded jewelery bag. I keep it separated from my other toys due to the glass material. I do not want any breaking or cracking from being bumped around while searching for that perfect for now toy.
    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store
Follow-up commentary
I love the light temperature changes this dildo will allow for sensory play! When adding a vibrating cock ring to this I relax, let the vibrations hit the G-spot and wait for that sweet orgasm to happen. Oh, what a feeling! I am very happy with this product, wish it had more options with vibrations and yes, I still want to hang it on my Christmas tree!

    Dang! For some reason when I did a product search for things to review, I thought I had remembered someone saying that this was a cheap looking metal toy knock off, and that the metallic paint flaked off... so I didn't even click it. Now I realize it's glass, and I'm SO bummed out that I didn't request it!
  • P'Gell
    This is beautiful! Why didn't your husband like to see you using it? Did he say something that would be helpful to know?

    Is "eglass" or "cyberglass" (what DJ says this toys is made of) the same as regular tempered glass or closer to Pyrex?
  • js250
    My husband loved watching me use it, just never on him. He isn't into being penetrated by anything, but is more then happy to watch me play with myself!! I didn't mean to be confusing. I would say it feels more like tempered glass, but there is no explanation on the packaging. I am looking into it for my follow-up.
