Beauty is in the Eye of the Beholder

The 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.

Use

The Reflections Beauty is a glass vibrator that is best for vaginal use, but can also be used to stimulate the clitoris or any other external areas. It's not safe for anal insertion, since there is no flared base.

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.

Material / Texture

The Beauty is made from non-porous borosilicate glass (also known as Pyrex) and has a "Velvet Touch" coating, which gives it a frosted look and feel. The coating causes this toy to have more drag than most other glass toys, so most users will require added lube.

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.

Design / Shape / Size

The Beauty has a tapered tip, followed by a bulbous head, and 2 bulged areas. According to my measurements, it is just under 6 inches long, with 4 1/2 insertable inches. The head and ridges are 5 inches in circumference, and the base of the toy, and areas between the ridges are 4 inches.

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.

Functions / Performance / Controls

There are 3 levels of steady vibrations, controlled by a button on the base of the toy. The button is easy to press but takes a little force to operate, and clicks into place as you cycle through the settings.

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.

Care and Maintenance

Glass is compatible with all lubes and materials. The Beauty can be washed with soap and water or completely disinfected with a 10% bleach solution. It is easy to clean, especially since you don't need to worry about water getting inside. I recommend storing it in a padded toy pouch for protection.

Packaging

The Beauty came packaged in a clear plastic box, covered in a colorful design of circles, hearts, and swirls. The toy is visible through a window on the front, and there is product information on the sides and back. The packaging isn't discreet, and I find it too flimsy for storage, but it is fairly attractive and could be given as a gift.

Personal comments

The Beauty doesn't work for my body at all. I'm not a fan of texture, and I find it painful to insert or thrust with. The vibrations also aren't strong enough for me to use it as a clitoral vibrator.
Follow-up commentary
I think many glass toy addicts will love this, but it just didn't suit my preferences. It's much too textured for me to be able to insert comfortably and not quite strong enough for me to use as a clit vibe.

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.

    HouseWench - I'm pretty sure that it is a polyurethance coating. It feels the same as plastic toys with a "velvet" or PU coat.

    Thanks for the review! I wish this didn't have the velvet coating on it...I think I might be a better toy without it. Kinda pricey too...
