Beauty is in the Eye of the BeholderThe Reflections Beauty is one of only a few toys available that is made of glass and features vibrations. The Beauty isn't extremely powerful, but for those who love using textured glass dildos, the vibrations could be an added bonus. Users who don't enjoy hard materials or intense texture may find this toy overwhelming or even painful.
The Beauty is waterproof, so it can be used in the shower or tub. The glass material also lends itself to temperature play. It is quiet enough that those in shared living situations don't need to worry about being overheard.
This toy would be best for someone who enjoys hard materials and intense texture and doesn't require extremely strong vibrations.
Borosilicate glass is very strong and resistant to shattering. It holds temperatures well and can be heated in warm water or cooled in cold water.
Glass is hard, so the Beauty can feel a bit larger than toys of the same size made from a soft material. The hard glass also means that the texture is very intense and easily felt.
The Beauty has a decent amount of girth, but is fairly short. Some users may find it too thick, especially due to the hard material and texture. It also won't be long enough for someone who prefers deep penetration.
Because it isn't very large, the Beauty is easy to store and could be traveled with. Just make sure to remove the batteries so it doesn't turn on in your bag.
The design is attractive and doesn't resemble a penis, but it does look like a vibrator.
The vibrations are medium in pitch (neither rumbly or buzzy.) They aren't extremely powerful, but should be enough for the average user, especially with the added stimulation provided by the texture. The vibrations are quiet and wouldn't be heard through a door.
The Beauty is powered by 1 AA battery, which can easily be replaced by screwing off the cap on the base of the toy. The cap has a gasket to keep water out, and I was able to submerge the toy without any water leaking inside.
I was asked about the coating coming off, after roughly scrubbing it with a washcloth I saw no signs of that. I even took a bobby pin and scraped the toy as hard as I could. It left a slight scratch on the surface, but none of the coating flaked off.
