The Blush Made Me BlancheThis toy was disappointing; it's far too flexible and unwieldy, carries a strong and lasting odor, and is difficult to clean. The only thing it has going for it is the skin-like texture is realistic.
True to her word, the Blush had a realistic skin-like feel, but that was about all this toy had going for it. The first thing I noticed about the Blush was that it had a highly strange and unpleasant scent, and no matter how many times I washed or aired the thing out, it didn't seem to diminish. Furthermore, the toy was far too flexible and unwieldy for me (not to mention a bit too large for a beginner). In fact, I believe that the Blush's main problem is its flexibility--it feels flaccid at best and I personally tend to work better with something that has a bit of stiffness to it and doesn't remind me of a jello-mold. It's difficult to insert, thrust with, and play with, even when you're using gravity to your advantage. Furthermore, it's a bit porous and hard to clean. (And note: it's only for use with water-based lubricants.)
I suppose that I should go over some of the pros of the toy: the Blush has a fun and artistic sort of look to it. I love how it's a clear-jelly blue with an airbrushed pink head to it. It's also completely waterproof so you can have fun in the shower or bath with it without having to worry. In fact, it's a bit better in the bath because the Blush tends to be a bit on the heavy side. That's about all I can say for the pros. I suppose it would make a good gag gift, as I took the Blush to be some sort of sad joke.
Needless to say, I was so unhappy with the Blush (I even gave it two or three more tries just to make sure it wasn't just me having an off day) that I deemed it unsalvageable and just threw it away.
