This toy is a wonderful new way for glass lovers to love glass! The frosted glass has an unique texture in use and the ridges can provide a "juicing" type of feel to the vibrator. Slowly thrust and spin the toy and you have the makings for a truly unique experience. The vibrations are moderate and will not appeal to power junkies but add a bit of excitement to the other features.

Nothing to get ecstatic about
Personally, I found the Reflections Ecstasy a bit underwhelming. Its best qualities (being waterproof and easily cleaned) are not that unique and can be found in other vibrators. Yes, I was able to make it work for me, eventually. But the shape was all wrong for my anatomy. It's no fault of the toy; we're just not that compatible. However, at the modest $32.99 price tag, it might be a good option for someone looking to acquire their first glass toy.
This fun jewel-tone glass vibe takes a single AA battery but packs a punch because of the way the glass transmits vibrations.
Pretty, strong vibes, affordable, glass is non-porous.
Frosted surface scratches easily.
This battery-operated vibe is made from glass! This may be the first, or one of the first, glass vibes out there. It certainly seems like the first glass vibe at this price point. If it doesn't look quite like glass in the pictures, that's because it has a frosted finish.
It is pretty powerful considering it only takes one AA battery; this must be because of how the glass transmits vibrations. It goes at three speeds, and is on the loud side--again, the loudness must be due to the fact that it's glass.
It's marked as "waterproof" so that means it's splash-safe, but I would caution against fully submerging any electrical toy. Submerging it could lead to breakage or a shorter lifespan.
Material / Texture:
The shaft is made of glass with a frosted coating. It's from Doc Johnson, so the packaging offers little in the way of detailed info--but I wonder if the frosted coating isn't designed to help protect the glass. It's as hard as glass and a little cool to the touch unless you warm it by dipping it in warm water. It's not quite as cold as unfrosted glass, and I imagine that's because of the coating.
One thing I didn't like was that the frosted coating was easy to scratch, leaving faint white marks.
On the plus side, this is a relatively affordable way to get the hard intensity of glass with added vibes--a rare combination, to be sure.
Overall, I like the jewel-tone color and the fun design. It looks feminine and flirty but not super girly.
I like the pointed tip because it goes in easy--a feature I always appreciate because of my generally tight nether regions. I also liked how the bulge in the middle intensified the sensation of penetration mid-stroke. The vertical ridges also add a little extra stimulation.
It's not inherently a G-spot toy, but if you can angle it right, depending on the location of your own spot, you might be able to hit it. I was.
Functions / Performance / Controls:
There is a simple on/off button on the end of the battery pack, which is plastic and screws on. Pressing the button turns it on and cycles through the speeds. I like the simplicity of the button, but it's placement does introduce the danger of turning it off accidentally during use.
The vibes are rather strong for a one-battery toy, and I suspect that this is because of the way the glass transmits vibrations.I like the type of strong, throbby vibes too.
Care and Maintenance:
It is non-porous and can be sterilized with a 10% bleach solution and soap and water rinse-off. Use a condom if sharing with others. Take the battery out when not in use to prevent acid leaking out and ruining the toy.
Simple and discard-able. Makes it look fun for a gift.
