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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
