What's Up, Doc?!

I think this is a great toy for texture junkies and size queens that enjoy girth specifically. I love how pretty it is and I also love that it delivered as well. It has a fun shape (which I think looks like a light bulb), which makes it super discreet.

Use

Doc Johnson's Reflections Beauty is best used for vaginal and clitoral stimulation. It does not have a flared base, so PLEASE do not stick this in your butt. If you want to use it for rimming only though, that is perfectly ok. Just remember to clean it before you use it anywhere else.

The Reflections Beauty is suitable for both couples and solo users who have a little bit of experience with texture and firmer materials such as plastic. You need not to have tried glass, but because it has no give it will make you feel "fuller", which some users may not like. If you haven't experimented with either previously, you might find this toy uncomfortable or down right painful.

It's also waterproof! Which means it is not only suitable for water play, but you can boil it or cool it for temperature play as well.

Material / Texture

The Reflections Beauty is made of pyrex glass. The awesome thing about Pyrex is that if you break it, it will break into huge chunks, not into tiny little pieces. That means it will not leave tiny chips inside of you and cause injury. It is also super durable, and can be dropped on the floor without fear of shattering (but don't do this, please). Pyrex ranks a ten on the Eden safety scale, which means the material can be purged of all bacteria when properly cleaned. It is also compatible with all lubes.

When I opened the box, the Beauty had a slight odor and what looked like a little bit of dirt (or something that I'm not sure of), but both went away when I washed it with my toy cleaner. So I recommend cleaning this before you use it.

The surface of the pyrex is frosted, which gives the Beauty a certain smooth texture that typical glass toys lack; however I wouldn't say that the smoothness really contributes to stimulation- it's present for a more aesthetic purpose. What you must remember about Pyrex glass: it is glass, so it is going to feel bigger than a toy of the same size made of a material like silicone. It has no give but it does not break easily (unless you peg it against the wall, but it's so pretty, so there's no need to do anything of the sort.)

The texture can make it or break it for some users. The toy starts off with the bulb of the head, which can be a little too much for some. I usually don't require any lube whatsoever (unless for anal play), but I had to grab some so the Beauty could slip in more comfortably. There are then two more ridged areas, which are about roughly the same circumference as the bulb. As someone who has never used glass or an extremely bulbed toy, I admit when I started I was in some pain. As I moved along though, the pain melted into pleasure.

Pyrex can also be used for temperature play; all you must do is place the toy in a bowl of either hot or cold water. If you boil it or place it in the freezer, you may hurt yourself badly, which is something you definitely don't want to do.

If you have never tried "solid" toys, or toys with no give, I wouldn't recommend this to you. Also, if you are sensitive to textures such as this, I would not recommend this to you as well.

    • Rigid

Design / Shape / Size

The Beauty looks like a weird energy efficient light bulb, which I think is awesome. If you decide to take this on an airplane, almost no one should be able to guess that you are taking a sex toy along with you. The bottom of it has the cap which reads "Doc Johnson", so unless you leave this around someone who already has some idea what kind of company Doc Johnson is, almost no one else will know it is a vibrator.

The Beauty has a bulbous head and two ridged areas. The length of the Beauty is 6 1/4 inches but only 4 3/4 inches are insertable. The circumference of the Beauty is a 4 3/4 inches and the diameter is 1 1/2 inches so it is shorter than the average male penis, but about the same width. I think it is appropriate for women who prefer girth over length, so if you are a size queen, this toy is probably too short for you. Also, if you are sensitive to wider toys the Beauty is not meant for you. Again, because the Beauty is made of Pyrex, it is going to feel larger than if the toy was made of silicone.

Because of its shape and size, I can store this virtually anywhere. Currently, it is residing in my Fun Factory Pleasure Can. But if you decide to store this with your other light bulbs, you could probably get away with that too.

I was able to use this toy for deep vaginal use and g spot play, but I have a smaller vagina than most women, so I suspect that women with deeper vaginas or deeper g spots will not be able to use it for this kind of use.

The Beauty does not have a flared base, so please do not use the Beauty anally.

Functions / Performance / Controls

The Beauty is powered by one AA battery (not included). To place it into the Beauty, all you must do is twist the cap off located at the bottom and then insert the battery. If you want to use this in the bath, please make sure you lock it extra tight so that water does not come in and ruin your toy.

At the bottom of the cap, there is a button that you must click on so that you may to turn the toy on and then change the speed of the toy. There is no off button, so you must keep clicking until it turns off. The intensity increases each time you hit the button. The button is a bit on the sensitive side, so all you have to do is tap it. I managed to keep a good control of the toy most of the time while I was using it, but there were a couple times that I accidently hit the button and changed the intensity.

There are three intensities of vibrations. The vibrations alone should not be overwhelming to the average user, but if you are already overwhelmed with the shape, then it is best to use this toy at the lowest or medium vibration. When I used it on the highest vibration, I first experienced a wee bit of pain, but it quickly escaped. It's super quiet; you can barely hear through the sheets, so if you have company around it is unlikely they will hear your toy.

It is excellent in the shower. Its vibrations were just as good, and since the water kept the toy a little more wet than my vagina alone, it helped for easier insertion and thrusting. I think it would do just as well in the bath tub.

Care and Maintenance

As I mentioned earlier, the Beauty first had dirt or something on it when I first opened it up. It went away after I cleaned it with a water based toy cleaner. Anyway, I've noticed it tends to be dirt attractor, so it's best to clean this toy before and after use. I store it separately in my Pleasure Can so that it will not attract dirt, etc. to itself or to the rest of my toys.

It is made of Pyrex, which means it is nonporous (does not harbor bacteria) and can be cleaned super easily. You can wash it with toy cleaners or wipes, wash it with warm soap and water, or clean it with a 10% bleach solution. So you can basically clean this toy however you want.

The Beauty is compatible with any lube under the sun, which means it can use water based lube, oil based lube and silicone based lube. Pyrex is not picky, so whatever you choose, will not destroy your toy.

Packaging

The Beauty comes in a pretty plastic box with a bunch of colorful decorations that resemble a cross between San Rio and a fun late 60s pattern. It has, "Reflections: Glass Vibrations Beauty" written on the front in a large, colorful font. On the right side of the box, there is a description of the toy written in 6 languages, and also states that the battery does not come with the toy. On the back of the toy box, there is another description going into more detail about the toy and its material. There is a plastic insert that holds and protects your toy from rattling around the box.

This box could easily be used as gift box or a storage facility (if you take really good care of it). There are no user instructions included, but I feel that the Beauty did not need any to begin with.

The packaging is also recyclable.

Personal comments

Doc Johnson toys are a hit or miss for me; this toy is definitely a hit. I think it appeals to a very specific user group, but I feel it is perfect for me. I prefer toys with a lot of girth, but are smaller in length so that they don't hurt my cervix. Many toys with wide girth tend to be super long, and I end up never using them. This toy is not the case. It's pretty, has a good texture, and a super material. It's coming out of the toy box for many visits to my vagina.

Experience

I love this toy. It's so pretty and yet does so well in bed. It has a fun shape which hits all my spots. It also isn't too big, so it doesn't hurt my cervix during thrusting. I can also maneuver perfectly so that it hits my g spot as well. I don't think this toy is for everyone, but I think the Beauty is just wonderful for me.
Follow-up commentary
I like my Beauty still, but I found I have to be pretty careful with it when I'm using it on myself. I do like the size and vibrations, but if I'm not totally prepared to take it, it can be a little painful and very unpleasant. However, most of the time, I usually have the patience and care to make sure that playing with my Beauty is a fun and rewarding experience.

    The product description for this says it's tempered glass, not borosilicate. If the packaging said it was borosilicate, you should submit a support ticket to get the page updated; otherwise you might want to update your review.

    Also, boiling glass is usually fine to sterilize it, but *not* if there's a vibrator motor inside! It should only be bleached. And to avoid burns or Christmas Story Syndrome, only use a bowl of warm or cold water for temperature play---never the freezer or boiling water. Ouch.

    Great review! The shape of this reminds me of a weird shaped ice cream cone, but it looks like it would be a fun feeling.

    Nice review! As stated above though, this should only be used for temperature play with hot and cold water, NOT boiling because it has mechanical parts.
