Cute Name, Cute Box, Mediocre Buzz.

The Sweet Spot Buzz certainly satisfied my eye's sweet spot for bright colors and pretty packaging. Other than that the vibe is a let-down. The vibrations are way too buzzy and aren't strong or "solid" feeling. The control has a glitch, which can be irritating. Additionally there really isn't a low enough vibration setting for my preference.

Use

The Sweet Spot Buzz Snackbox is an adorable vibe if you are looking for a traditional vibrator with on-target packaging. This vibe would be the perfect affordable gift for any gal who just loves cute-sey packaging. Unfortunately other than the presentation the Sweet Spot really doesn't have any other major selling points.I have used the Sweet Spot for internal and external vaginal stimulation, external anal stimulation (it is not safe for insertion because there is no flared base), nipples, and body massage. Due to design this vibe really isn't good for hitting the g-spot. At seven inches in length and one inch diameter the Sweet Spot is great for insertion or any form of external stim.

My boyfriend and I have only ever had a few cheap vibes to play with (I've never committed to purchasing an expensive one) and this one doesn't really stand out or seem any better than the others. It is really just a plain cheap vibrator. My boyfriend and I enjoy using the sweet spot to play with each other. During foreplay he performed oral sex on me and vaginally inserted the toy into me. I rolled the vibe down his back during a massage. Also, he used it to stimulate my anus during sex.

Material / Texture

The Sweet Spot Buzz by Glow is an ABS plastic toy. Plastic is an 8 on Eden's safety scale. On the Snackbox package it is advertised as "slick when lubricated," "Seamless," and "Phthalate free." Plastic is also non-porous. It is a pretty safe toy material-wise. I would suggest using a condom on the toy when sharing if you are not fluid-bonded to the individual.

There is no scent or taste to the Sweet Spot Buzz. It has a shiny slick surface that reflects light. The Buzz has a bit of weight to it, more than I expected. It is advertised as "smooth" and "seamless" and this is pretty much true except for the tiny spot on the tip of the vibe which appears to be where the plastic was poured into the mold. There is no texture on the Sweet Spot Buzz, but since it is plastic there is also no drag or stickiness to it like some other toys (think silicone or jelly).

Design / Shape / Size

The Sweet Spot Buzz is made to be a plain-jane vibrator. At the base there is a twist control for changing the vibration level. I got the Cotton Candy Pink Sweet Spot for review. I find this name strange for the color, I imagine cotton candy as a sweet soft/light pink, but this vibe is more hot/dark magenta. The Sweet Spot is certainly not the color of pink cotton candy.

The Sweet Spot is seven inches long (about six of those inches is insertable) and one inch in diameter. The tip is tapered for extremely easy insertion. I like the size for warming up especially since my boyfriend is a bit larger and it's nice to warm up before jumping into sex. This is a great vibe for beginners since it is a non-intimidating size but really I would recommend it for anyone who is looking for a traditional vibe. Weighing in at .3 pounds (without the 2 AA batteries), this toy does have some weight to it.

I would say it is moderately hard to hide this toy. It did not come with a pouch which makes hiding a toy a lot easier. It is also bright pink which doesn't help. I would suggest tucking this toy away in a storage pouch or a drawer. I would also suggest a pouch for travel and I would also remove the batteries for good measure.

Functions / Performance / Controls

This vibrator is not a fabulous performer. The vibrations are buzzy and there is not a gentle and low enough setting for my liking. I like a deeper gentler vibration but this Sweet Spot Buzz is just that; a big old BUZZ. When I turn it on the lowest setting it sounds like a bunch of angry bees and as I turn it higher its like the bees are getting angrier. The vibrations are located mostly at the upper part of the vibe but weaken at the tip. I do like the twist control because the transition is smoother than an up and down button control but, this twist control is not my favorite at all. My vibrator has a little glitch in it, as you twist the control it goes to low, gets a little stronger, then shuts off and cuts back on to the higher settings. It is so strange!

This toy is pretty loud and can most likely be heard through a door and can certainly be heard from under the covers. This toy is also water proof but I wouldn't try to completely submerge it because it seems like water could still get inside.

Care and Maintenance

ABS Plastic is incredibly easy to take care of. Just wash with soap and water, wipe down with a toy wipe, use toy cleaner spray, or use isopropyl alcohol. You can use any lube you want on plastic: water, oil, or silicone-based are all fine. Storage is pretty easy just put it in a pouch or a drawer and you are good to go. The box it came in is pretty weak and isn't good for storage. I accidentally ripped the box while opening it for the first time.

Packaging

The packaging of the Sweet Spot Buzz takes the cake. It is so darned cute: pink and green color scheme, twirly font, and amazingly adorable graphics. There is even a little bite out of the handle, do you get it??? "snackbox!" If I was rating this toy only by packaging it would get 5 stars!

The back of the package has a few features listed:

7" Vibe tickles your sweet spots- inside and out
Powerful multi-speed vibrations suit your needs
Narrow vibe's smooth texture is slick when lubricated
Waterproof for a sexy time in the shower or tub
Seamless
ABS plastic caresses soft skin
Phthalate free

The box does not include any instructions but the toy is pretty easy to figure out. Un-twist the base, insert 2 AA batteries, twist base back on and use the dial to turn on and off. This packaging could definitely be used as a gift box but it really can't be used as storage which is a shame because it is so cute like something you would buy from a boutique store.
Follow-up commentary
Since getting this vibe I have gotten two higher end Lelo vibes (Mia and Gigi). This vibe just really doesn't compare! I don't use it anymore now that I have been spoiled by more expensive toys.

The Sweet Spot Buzz has cute packaging and a cute name but other than that it just doesn't impress me. The actual product is so simple and plain.
