This metal jewels vibe is made of a hard, non-porous, and phthalate-free plastic material with a smooth texture. When I took it out of its container it had no smell or taste and it was smooth to the touch. There was no added texture to speak of on this vibe since it was completely smooth down the entire shaft. There were ridges near the end that you hold to change the vibrations.
I liked the design although I had trouble using it as it was intended. This just did not work for me as a g-spot vibrator. This was uncomfortable for me to insert for reasons that I am still trying to figure out. The vibrator is purple and 6 1/2" long. It can be inserted up to 5". The circumference is 3" and the diameter is 1". It is not heavy at only 0.2 pounds. This will not be an easy toy to hide so I would suggest that you purchase a bag or even a small box if you plan to take this away from home. I believe that this toy would be more suitable for advanced users instead of a newbie such as myself.
The functions were easy to control although I stayed on the 3rd level more than anywhere else. The vibrations were located over the entire vibrator. The functions that I enjoyed most were level 3 and level 6. I found the other vibrations past level 3 and excluding level 6 to be more annoying than anything else. This was due to the fact that I would get close to an orgasm and the vibration would pause, causing me to have to start all over again. The controls are easy and convenient to use. It gets progressively louder as you go up in levels but not loud enough to be heard through the door or even a thick blanket. When using this in the water I found that it worked just as well as it did out of water. It did not lose any of its power when I used it in the water.

It can easily be cleaned with antibacterial soap and hot water or by wiping down with isopropyl alcohol. It works with water, oil or silicone based lubricants. I suggest putting this toy away in a pouch or toy box to prevent any dings to it.
Edited to add- THIS IS NOT WATERPROOF!!! I tried this in the water and it worked fine. After using it I was cleaning the toy and opened it to take the batteries out. There was more than a few drops of water in the battery compartment. I would suggest not trying this in the water, I think I got lucky and it still works but I wouldn't risk it again.
The vibrator came in a clear plastic rectangle box which is flimsy and cannot be used for storage. It had no instructions in my package but it was very easy to ascertain how to get the vibe to work. The packaging was not discreet since the packaging was clear.
I thoroughly enjoyed using this vibe although not in the manner that was expected. It was still a joy to use and I will continue to use this in the year to come. I found that it did not guzzle batteries as I would expect a powerful toy to do.
