My Big Beauty

The Reflections Beauty is a great toy for any glass enthusiast or those interested in the novelty of a glass vibe. With a large girth and beautiful rippling texture, the Reflections Beauty may be a toy size queens would like. The Reflections Beauty can be heated up or cooled down for temperature play and its light vibrations make it great for teasing of any erogenous zone. The Reflections Beauty is also beginner friendly with its smooth tapered tip making for easy insertion.

Use

The Reflections Beauty is part of Doc Johnson's affordable glass line, called "Reflections." What this beauty lacks in power it makes up in size, providing the user with that rich, full feeling. The delightful texture creates a wonderful popping sensation that lovers of texture or those who want to explore simple textures will be sure to enjoy. While the Reflections Beauty is a girthy size, this toy lets you take that girth with a simple tapered head. However, if you are someone who needs high or even moderate vibrations, look elsewhere!

Material / Texture

The Reflections Beauty is made of beautifully frosted tempered glass, that shimmers in the light, over a large plastic bullet. Doc Johnson uses a "Velvet Touch" coating, making this glass toy dance across one's skin with ease.

Glass rates a 10 out of 10 on Eden's safety scale, making the Reflections Beauty 100% body safe being hypo-allergenic, latex, phthalates and odor free. Glass is a nonporous material and can be used with all types of lubricant (oil, silicone or water-based) without compromising the integrity of the toy's finish. Unlike other toys, glass does not easily pick up lint making it much easier to store! Being a glass toy, the Reflections Beauty is very ridged with absolutely no give to it.

The Reflections Beauty, while smooth yet firm, does have some delightful texture to it. Having three large bulges down its shaft, the Reflections Beauty is great for creating g-spot pressure and giving one that nice "popping" feeling upon insertion and removal of the toy.

Design / Shape / Size

The Reflections Beauty is a large, unforgiving toy, with three ripples down its shaft. The Reflections Beauty has a four inch circumference while the bulbous "ripples" measure five inches around (with about a half inch spacing between them), giving the user an intense, full feeling when inserted. The Reflections Beauty measures a total of nine inches in length, with about four and a half inches of insertable length. The tapered head of this toy makes for easy insertion, even if some users are weary of the overall size of this beauty. Users should use an ample amount of lube to make insertion more comfortable. The Base of the Reflections beauty is a plastic cap with a push button control on the bottom and a large O-ring making this toy 100% waterproof.

Although this would make a wonderful anal toy, the Reflections Beauty is for vaginal use only as it lacks a flared base making it unsafe for anal play. However its overall size makes for amazing external stimulation to the vagina, and the tapered tip of the toy can make for excellent pin-point stimulation to one's clitoris.

Functions / Performance / Controls

The Reflections Beauty has a push button control located at the bottom of its base, but unlike other push button controlled toys, the Reflections Beauty only has three settings of vibrations being void of any patterns. The vibration speeds of the reflections Beauty, when turned on, range from low to medium to high. The toy will turn off with a fourth click to the control after going through all of the vibration settings.
Being a glass toy, the vibrations carry very well throughout the entirety of the Beauty, however these vibrations are very, very weak. The highest vibration setting on the Reflections Beauty rates about a 2 vroom.

The Reflections Beauty is powered by a single AA battery which is easy to insert and remove. After taking off the cap on the base of the toy (by turning it to the left until it turns all the way off), you will find a small bit of paper inside of the battery compartment which tells you which way the battery is to be placed and what type of batteries are used for this toy. DO NOT REMOVE THIS PAPER! Many toys with this slip included in the battery compartment will often stop working once the paper is removed. It also serves to keep the batteries inside the toy from knocking around and creating excessive noise.

Although the vibrations of the Reflections Beauty are meek, it makes for good, light sensory play of any erogenous zone such as one's nipples. Coupled with temperature play, the light vibrations can feel amazing and are great for teasing.

Like other glass toys, the Reflections Beauty is great for temperature play, keeping its desired temperature for some time. One can heat up the Reflections Beauty by holding it in a bowl of warm/hot water, or cooled down by putting it in a bowl of ice water, until it reaches the desired temperature is reached. While this toy is 100% waterproof, it is not suggested to submerge the whole toy in tempered water as it could react badly with the motor. It is also suggested to NEVER expose your glass toys to different temperatures quickly, such as going from hot to cold (or vice versa) in a very short amount of time, as the shock can crack the toy, making it unusable. While others have put their glass toys in the freezer/frige to cool down, I would not suggest doing this with your Reflections Beauty as the temperature will stop the motor from working until the toy warms up again.

The Reflections Beauty is a very quiet toy and is almost inaudible from under the covers, making it a great toy for dorm living.
    • Discreet sound
    • Not enough variety
    • Weak

Care and Maintenance

Being a waterproof toy, the Reflections Beauty is very easy to care for. To clean the Reflections Beauty, one can use mild soap and warm water, spraying it down with a 10% bleach solution then wiping it down, or by using your favorite toy wipes or spray! Because the Reflections Beauty has a large bullet under its glass body, you cannot clean this toy by boiling or putting it in the top rack of a dish washer, as it can not only ruin the toy but the glass used.

Because Reflections Beauty has a glass sleeve over a bullet, it may be a little difficult to clean where the sleeve is sealed to the bullet. Pay special attention to this area during cleaning so that no water/body fluids get trapped between the two causing bacteria to grow.

Storage for the Reflections Beauty is simple. Being a glass toy, the Reflections Beauty will not react to other materials/toys and can be stored with other toys. However, to avoid nicks and cracks, be sure to store the Reflections Beauty in a safe place where it will not be knocked around, preferably in a padded storage bag, and away from other loose glass toys (so they cannot knock into one another and break).
    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store

Packaging

The Reflections Beauty comes packaged in a clear plastic box, sitting inside a plastic insert so the toy does not move around during travel. While there are no overtly sexual images on the packaging, it is less than discreet as you can clearly see the toy through the plastic window in the front. This packaging comes with very minimal information such as "HYGIENIC, BODY SAFE...BOROSILICATE GLASS...VELVET TOUCH...MULTI-SPEED... WATERPROOF." On the back of the packaging is a short story about the Reflections Beauty, but offers no further information aside from the website to find the warranty information and product registration.

Because of its plastic insert, the packaging of the Reflections Beauty may be used for storage so the toy does not get damaged, however this plastic packaging is not the best for long-term storage.

I cannot remember if a battery leaflet, explaining how to remove the battery cap and insert/remove batteries, was included with this product - though I do not believe any were (as I am very careful to keep any and all toy packaging/info together until after reviews are published).

Personal comments

The push button control of the Reflections Beauty can be on the sensitive side. While it dose take pressure and the reaffirming "click" to change speeds or turn off the toy, if you bump into the control or do not push the button all the way the vibrations will stop. This may be nice for those who enjoy sensory deprivation, since you can hold the button down lightly to stop vibrations, and then remove your finger to start the vibrations again without changing the vibration settings. However I do not know if this will have a negative effect on the toy's motor in the long-term.

Experience

I wish this toy was anal safe as I could see myself really enjoying the full feeling and popping sensation this toy is so good at providing! However as it is, the Reflections Beauty is not a bad toy, but not at the top of my list of toys I use often. The girth of this toy provides me with a great sensation, but the weak vibrations do not do much for me.

I really enjoy cooling down this toy before using it. On its highest vibration, I use the Reflections Beauty for broad external stimulation/teasing before insertion. While I cannot get off alone, I enjoy using it with another vibe on my clitoris, while I thrust with the Reflections Beauty. Even with weak internal vibrations, it's very pleasurable, especially when I use the Reflections Beauty in this way.
