Studio collection Vibrating brush - discreet massager by The Screaming O - review by PassionQT

Barely a Dusting!

This toy looked so cute, but sadly, it was a general disappointment from the power to the overall design, which proved to be completely ineffective. Even at the highest setting, the vibrations were barely noticeable in the brush end, but it was certainly loud enough to realize the toy was functioning properly.
Compact, discreet, includes extra set of batteries.
Too weak, uses LR44 watch batteries.

extremely useful review
This makeup brush look-a-like is for those users whose primary focus is the utmost discretion, or for those that like to collect unique personal massagers. Other than that, a more experienced, power-hungry user is probably going to be very disappointed with the performance of this item. It's intended to stimulate your most sensitive external erogenous zones, and it very well may do that, for the individual who doesn't require much stimulation at all to get off; however, if like me, you are one who needs to work it for awhile, may I suggest you find something else because this one became very boring, very quick.

Most of the toy is plastic, with the exception of the bristly head, which has the look and feel of silicone, but it smells more like rubber, so I'm doubtful it's the first option, and the packaging makes absolutely no reference to what it is. The handle is smooth plastic, and consists of several different colored sections stacked together to give it the intended look of a makeup brush.

Measuring just 4.5 inches tall, this toy is comparable to a purse-sized makeup brush, so it fits nicely in to a portable make-up bag or pocket. The handle's diameter is 1.5 inches and the diameter of the bristled head is 1.75 inches.


The supposed highlight of this toy is the brush head, which is made up of 5 concentric rings of flexible bristles centered around a thicker nub. Each ring varies in thickness, and the heights of these are graduated. The brush head is lightly glued in a ferrule that looks like a peanut butter cup. Once the glue weakens, the head is prone to coming off easily, although no water will be able to penetrate to the motor area of this toy through that area and the toy is salvageable if you put re-glue it. Just don't go intentionally pulling the head off! The toy is designed to be waterproof, which is helpful when it comes to cleaning the head, since it's hard not to get most of the toy wet under running water.

This runs on 3 AG-13 watch-size batteries which are said to provide 80 minutes of vibrations. An extra set of batteries is included for your convenience. There are four settings which are activated by clicking the marked power button on the bottom of the handle: low, medium, high, and a pulsating "tease" mode.

According to the packaging, the top center-most part of the brush is supposed ot "please", the middle section to "tease", and the longer outer bristles to "tickle". Honestly, they all felt the same to me. The vibrations are very buzzy but not extremely loud, and if I'm not dreaming, I felt them more in the handle than in the head, which defeats the purpose of this toy.

Since the material is questionable, just stick to a water-based lubricant or your own natural juices to be on the safe side. Dried fluids, lint, hair, etc.. can accumulate between the dense nubs, but it can be safely cleaned under running water with antibacterial soap.
I wasted no time seeing if this would tickle my bits and leave me gasping for air. Pfft! All I could think was "that's it?". If you have very sensitive, and I mean VERY sensitive parts (nipples, clitoris, etc..) you might really enjoy that. I could barely feel anything, even on high.
Follow-up commentary
Cute idea, poor delivery for me. And when the brush head came unglued after a couple of uses, I was like "forget it!". Only those who need assured discretion (or who love James Bond type gadgets) may go for this type of product. Thanks, but I prefer toys that have nothing to hide.

    Wow, a toy without power is tossed out the window for me! That's sad.
    It also bugs me that you said the head part could come off over a little time...

    I'll be passing on this one (I had my suspicions already about it). Thanks for sharing!

    This is exactly what I thought would happen.

    Plus, if anybody would pick it up, they'll know something's hinky I mean what "brush" has fat rubber bristles? It's like comparing Cabbage Patch Kid doll hair to Barbie hair.
