Tempered Lutescence

Reflections Amber is a top shelf glass dildo with a simplistic, eye-catching, light-reflecting design. I would be hard pressed to find anyone who would be disappointed with this toy except for some minor issues with material preference. You will absolutely fall in love and find it difficult to use other toys when you have such a wonderful tool in your chest. This was great for temperature play, fabulous for partner play and those who are interested and cautious could use it for anal play.

extremely useful review

Use

Reflections Amber is a semi-classic glass dildo that is best suited for intermediate users who are looking for a glass toy with slightly more girth. In my opinion, once Reflections Amber is inserted, the feeling is full but comfortable and its size is in no way intimidating. You can hold it at either the larger end or the smaller end, and either can be inserted comfortably. Although I wouldn't particularly recommend this for anal play, I do not see why anyone who wanted to couldn't use it. However, I would caution for lack of a flared base. Additionally, gentle thrusting motions are fine, but this is a glass toy so you want to be careful not to do anything too reckless that might cause damage to the cervix. With that said, I found this toy great for partner and temperature play, but I would recommend that your partner know your body pretty bloody well if you want to give them full control over a glass toy.

Material / Texture

THE PRODUCT:
Reflections Amber is made up of Tempered Glass (not pyrex), earning it a safety rating of 10. Tempered glass is an inorganic non-metallic material that does not have a crystalline structure. Such materials are said to be amorphous and are virtually solid liquids cooled at such a rate that crystals have not been able to form. It retains temperature extremely well and requires only a little lube for a super-slippery effect. Overall, Reflections Amber is made up of food-grade material, is hypo-allergenic, latex free, non-porous and phthalate free.

THE BREAKDOWN:
1. The Senses
Smell
There was no smell to this product.

Taste
There was no taste to this product.

Touch
Reflections Amber is amazingly smooth and cool to the touch. It has four ribs that are smooth when you run your finger over the surface. There is virtually no drag when you run your finger across it, but without properly lubrication it could stick to the skin on the outer labia or resist insertion.
    • No odor
    • Not porous at all
    • Rigid

Design / Shape / Size

The design, shape and size of the toy is very nice for users looking for a comfortable grip on glass play.

DESIGN/SIZE/FIT
Reflections Amber is a beautifully and tastefully designed glass toy that begins smaller on the top and the ribs become larger as you move toward what a new user would consider the base. However, it can certainly be turned around so that the larger rib could be inserted first for more of a full sensation. I would say that this toy is best designed for intermediate users who are now moving on to more girthy and complexly designed glass toys.

CRAFTMANSHIP/MATERIAL
The craftsmanship of Reflections Amber is superb. It isn't too heavy and the tempered glass has been tempered to perfection. There were no imperfections that I could see or feel. I was very, very happy with this purchase. It has a brilliant burst of yellow color down the center, while the remainder of the toy is clear glass. It's very difficult to photograph! The toy does not have a realistic look and may only be suitable for specific types of travel.

Performance

Reflections Amber is a classic and elegant glass toy that isn't too big or too small. Of course, as with any glass toy, you should be careful of thrusting too hard as to cause damage to the cervix. However, if you get a nice motion going, the ribs allow for angular adjustment in thrusting and the toy heats up with the friction so that you feel a very warm sensation that is absolutely orgasmic. I am a huge fan of rigid toys, but for some this might not be so great and people may have trouble reaching their G-spot. I had some concern that G-Spot stimulation would be difficult with this toy, but I actually found it to be quite comfortable and successful. Additionally, the ribs on Reflections Amber could easily be used for Kegel exercises, similar to another glass kegel exerciser that I bought from Eden: Crystal Premium Glass Kegel Exerciser: Charcoal.

Additionally, since this a non-motorized toy, there is no worry about anyone hearing you use it!
    • Comfortable
    • Easy to use

Care and Maintenance

Luckily, Reflections Amber is easy to care for and store, and the ribs pose no trouble for cleaning.
CARE
Glass is extremely smooth and nonporous. It's easy to clean with soap/water or sex toy cleaner. It is recommended that you use condoms if sharing.

LUBRICANTS
Silicone, water, or oil can be used.

STORAGE
I kept the inner plastic insert that the Reflections Amber came in and I store it discreetly in the corner of a drawer for easy access or in a pouch in my toy chest.
    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store

Packaging

As aesthetically pleasing as I found Reflections Amber, I found myself largely disappointed with the packaging. The box was slightly damaged and it was made of a flimsy material that was difficult to close once opened. On the other hand, the box could be used as a gift box or a storage box, but I am not certain how long it would stand up. I had expected a toy like this to come in a pouch that could be used for storage or even a more sturdy box. The packaging itself was not discreet and the window in the front prominently displayed the product.
Packaging
    • Good for storage
    • Not discreet
    • Recyclable
Follow-up commentary
I am still madly in love with Reflections Amber! As my first glass toy, it holds a special place in my toy chest as well as all the right spots in me during play time.

When I first tried it out I used it solo. Since then my partner has introduced it into our play together a couple of times. Some of these included having me use it on myself during anal with him, which created a tighter and fuller feeling that was amazing. We were however, very cautious in this endeavor since as I mentioned originally, you could bruise the cervix without taking the appropriate care. He has also used Reflections Amber on me while I was instructed to use my bullet on my clit as well as during BDSM play, combining temperature play--making it icy cold, while inserting it in me and leaving me tied up, coupled with some good old fashioned spanking. I am able to hold Reflections in without it slipping out as the wavy design affords for Reflections Amber to have grip-able portions unlike some other classically tube-straight glass toys that may slip out no matter the user.

On the other hand, I still wish it was delivered in nicer packaging and that it came with a storage pouch of some kind. Even if it took the price up a little, not having to spend extra money on storage choices would be a huge plus for me.

    And Zasha, I am pretty selective about my backgrounds which I am sure can be distracting for some and fine for others so I appreciate your commentary and I am glad the review was helpful.
