Reflections beauty - traditional vibrator by Doc Johnson - review by ellieprobable

More beautiful to look at

The Reflections Beauty is a unique type of toy. Glass vibrators aren't too common. This one has a gorgeous finish but somewhat disappointing vibrations.
Excellent texture and design
Very buzzy vibrations that numb the hand

useful review


The Reflections Beauty is a petite toy that is primarily designed to be a clitoral vibrator. It does have some insertable length and can be used for vaginal insertion. This toy is not suitable for anal insertion as it does not have a flared base. If you are interested in glass but prefer vibrating toys, this might be a good choice for you. The waterproof design is well done and this toy can be safely submerged.

Material / Texture

The toy is made of glass with a hard plastic base to control the vibration. The glass is very unique as it has a frosted finish. I've actually never seen another glass toy with this finish before. It is not the perfectly slick texture of most glass toys. Rather, it is velvety smooth. This adds good friction and cuts down on drag. It has no discernible taste of smell. Other reviews made me think that this toy was rough in some way but it is not rough at all. Just slightly different from traditional glass.
    • No odor
    • Not porous at all
    • Rigid

Design / Shape / Size

This is a petite toy without a lot of insertable length. This is why I have classified it primarily as a spot vibrator for clitoral use. However, there is a short shaft that can be used for vaginal insertion. The bulges on the shaft allow the toy to somewhat stimulate the G-spot. However, it really is best used for clit stimulation because of the ergonomics involved. Given the small size and pretty design, this toy is moderately discreet. I'm sure anyone handling it could figure out it is a vibrator. However, it doesn't have any realistic features to give it away.

Functions / Performance / Controls

So, how does it function as a vibrator? Eh, not so hot. Here is the thing, there aren't a ton of glass vibrators on the market because glass doesn't conduct vibration too well. I found that to be the case with this toy.

The toy runs on a single AA battery. There are three vibration speeds that you can scroll through by pressing the single power button. For me, the main difference between the three speeds was the amount of noise they made. I could tell that the frequency of the vibration was increasing but it didn't really translate to increased sensation in the shaft of the toy. Where did I feel the vibration? In the hand that was holding the toy. It went numb quickly. So, you have very buzzy vibrations that are not focused on the business end of the toy. Not too satisfying.

The noise was relatively minimal even on the highest setting. The lowest setting, I found was more or less muffled by blankets so it could be used discreetly. When I tested it in the water, it functioned well. The gasket sealing the battery compartment is excellent and kept all water out.
    • Easy to use
    • Multiple settings
    • Weak

Care and Maintenance

To clean this glass toy simply wash with soap or toy cleaner and water. This toy can be sterilized which is a great benefit of it. You can apply a bleach solution or rubbing alcohol. Although it is waterproof, I would not submerge it to clean it because of the plastic base. It is compatible with all lubes!
    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store


The toy came packaged in simple clear plastic with some pretty designs on it. It is relatively streamlined and could be used for storage.

Personal comments

I don't hate this toy. But I don't love it either. I have a feeling it will sit in the back of my toy drawer most of the time. Even though it is very pretty and has a unique texture, the vibrations just don't function the way I want them to. I have other toys with weak vibrations that at least don't make my hand numb!
