The Beauty Reflections Glass vibrator by Doc Johnson




I was really excited to try another of the beautiful Glass Reflections range from Doc Johnson.Vibrator Kingdom were kind enough to send me the Beauty to try for this review.
 
The Reflections range

I already have Reflections Nirvana from the Reflection range so I had a good idea I was going to love the Beauty too.


The differences are the Beauty has a velvety texture with a white frosted opaque appearance. while the Nirvana is the same shape but has a glossy black glass with lots of glass nodules for much more stimulation. The frosted appearance however is deceiving as it looks rough but it certainly isn't and it really does have a smooth velvety feel.
I adore glass toys and to find a range which is not only stunning to look at and hold, but comes in different shapes and girths too; there really is something for everyone here.

Which will you choose?
 In order of appearance the Beauty  Bliss Glee Love Nirvana Wonder  and the the adorable glass bullet  Lil Pleasures

Packaging
My parcel arrived the next day discreet and well packaged. Plus I adore receiving products from Vibrator Kingdom as each item is always individually beautifully wrapped in coloured tissue paper. So you always feel extra special, along with your item you will always have samples sachets of other products to try at your leisure. I love the extra hand done little touches Vibrator Kingdom always give you.
This range comes in a plastic transparent box stylised with really snazzy 70's style hearts and swirls, circles. The box is fun and colourful and gives the feeling of 70's free and easy living.

Description
This gorgeous white frosted Borosilicate glass vibrator has a velvet touch, kinda odd having a velvety glass but it really has.
What is  Borosilicate glass
We have all heard of Pyrex used in kitchen equipment and  Borosilicate glass is a patented form of Pyrex. It's slick, smooth, dishwasher safe and extremeley strong and durable, its odourfree heat and chemical resistant and the glass can often last a lifetime. Should you drop it, instead of shattering like most glass it will simply crack or break open.
It has no pores and absorbs nothing so cannot pass on any bacteria or diseases.

It is phthalate and latex free, hygenic and body safe. Glass is also recyclable, making it one of the most environmentally friendly types of toys. The whole vibe has a lovely substantial weight and feel and sits comfortably in your hands.
It is 6 inches long and 1.53 inches wide.
Insertable length is 4.45 inches and the Head is 1.5 inches long.

The head tapers well from the shaft which has 2 ripples in the middle for extra sensation.

At the white base is ABS plastic with Doc Johnson logo printed in black on one side.
(I know its upside-down I wanted to show the button too lol)

On the tip is a rubberised transparent button with a 3 in black printed on it, standing for 3 speeds.This is well defined and easy to scroll through the 3 speeds to find the one your after.

Vibrations
The base unscrews to replace 1 AA battery. Tighten this back on up to maintain the 100% waterproof seal to play in the bath or shower. The vibrations are nice and simple with low, medium and fast.
Low and Medium are extremely quiet and great for foreplay, fast has a nice medium buzz to it, a lower frequency buzzing but its not quite a rumble it's completely inbetween buzzy and rumbly. A wonderful feeling inside.
Its not the strongest vibe I have but its nowhere near the weakest either. the low frequency makes the vibrations slightly deeper giving a great feel inside.No numb fingers here.
Noise
All 3 speeds are fairly discreet and cannot be heard through or wall or door. Ideal for the bath or shower with running water too.

The Reflections Nirvana and the Beauty
I adore this range purely because I can incorporate my love of sensory play too and my love of all things glass. For me I love hot and cold sensory play with the Beauty I enjoy more cool play and Nirvana hot.

While taking photos of these gorgeous vibes I had them in the sun ..(yes we actually had a hot day here in the UK) . When I went to pick up the Nirvana it was really hot in my hands after only 5 minutes in the hot sun, but the Beauty remained only just warm a marked difference.


But I have found she holds the cold much better than the Nirvana plus the frosted appearance reminds me more of snow and ice anyway so having both these gorgeous vibes is a bonus as they offer completely different sensations.This alone makes the Reflections range worth collecting to offer different feels for different moods.

Use

The usual glass toys do not need alot of lube if any because it has no pores to absorb the lubricant but the velvety feel gives a very slight drag but nothing like you get with some silicone toys; I could still get away without any lube at all but it adds to giving me more stimulation so I added a generous amount of my favourite lube (Give Lubes Premiere Aque gel) and I was ready to go.
I loved the cool solidness of the glass on my clit and the gently tapered head allows easy penetration and again being a solid vibe it feels extremely filling inside. I love the fact it has a wider girth than most middle sized vibrators at a lovely 1.53 inches wide. Im a girl who doesn't enjoy slimmer vibes as choice as I love to feel full so always tend to go for girths over 1.5 inches; but to find it in a smaller toy is harder than you think especially in glass.
If you prefer slimmer glass toys there are other designs in the range which offer a slightly slimmer designs like the Reflections Bliss and Glee which have G-spot bent tips. If you enjoy the girth however both the Beauty , Nirvana and Love offer a 1.6 girth.


The wide ribbing near the top of the vibrator is deep enough to feel inside; generally I cannot feel ridges and bumps inside on most toys; but Doc Johnson has designed this just right especially using glass. The heat from sensory play always makes me extra sensitive inside and out. I think its a cross between relaxing faster and the fact it brings the blood vessels to the surface livening up your nerve endings.
Angled in and upwards I can give myself slight stimulation to my G-spot too. I definitely prefer hard surfaces to stimulate both my clit and G-spot compared to soft squidgy toys. I can orgasm faster and with far more intensity.
Its not the strongest vibe I have, afterall its only run on 1 battery; but combined with heat it gets me there in minutes. I get the best stimulation by gently thrusting against my G-spot and then when nearing orgasm stimulate my clit again using the ribbing to gain more stimulation, this feels amazing.

Nipples and body
This is also perfect for sensory stimulation on your nipples and all over the body, simply roll it firmly across the skin and have a massage as well; the pressure feels incredible.

Anal
I haven't actually tried the Beauty for anal as I'm not an anal size queen this is a little to larger girth for me,vaginal yes anal...noooo! But those who enjoy anal play and prefer larger vibes will adore this as its so slippy once lubed and the tapered head is ideal.

Cleaning and maintenance
Being waterproof the Beauty can be cleaned easily under hot soapy running water and then sprayed with sextoy cleaner. I wouldn't though suggest putting this in the dishwasher like you can other glass toys despite being 100% waterproof as it still contains a motor which maybe effected by the extreme heat of the machine. It cleans so easily just under running soapy water in the bath or shower this is more than adequate as long as it is used with a sextoy cleaner too to sanitise.
Then store somewhere carefully so it cant clunk or bang into other glass toys. I would then store in a padded makeup bag or in its own box. Some people use socks to store glass toys in to give some padding.Everyone has got one lonely sock that doesn't have a partner!

Conclusion
The Reflections Beauty has a simple elegance to it which is beautifully designed with a unique luxury feel. I really love the classicness of this beautiful vibe and especially the girth and its small enough to pop into a handbag or suitcase to accompany you on holiday. Although I'd remove the battery first to prevent the small rubber button getting turned on during travelling (not much fun in customs trying to convince them its only a small vibrator).
The glass texture is very unusual I've never felt glass with a velvety feel, but it holds the heat well after being warmed up in a jug of hot water, it keeps the cold well too after only 10 minutes in the fridge.
The only con is that it marks easily but in the same instance it cleans off easily too; so no real complaints for me.
A wonderful glass starter toy as its unthreatening to use alone as a dildo or with battery as a vibrator. Plus a great smaller glass toy but with the same girth as a larger glass dildo a perfect discreet toy.
Enjoy it with sensory play hot or cold, by yourself or with a partner. This is a gorgeous fun glass toy that will be a perfect gift to someone who collects glass with the bonus of vibrations too. Once you try this you wont be able to resist collecting the rest of the set.The whole collection is stunning to look at, stunning to feel and great vibes; which one will you choose?

    Fab review as always. I love that YinYang picture at the beginning : ) and I really like how you talk about how they hold heat and cold differently, I never knew this but its so interesting. I so agree about the girth too, girth is in my view is more important than length and I too feel totally full with these vibrators. I adore the solidness of them and love the smooth finish they feel fab (every where).

    Thank you so much for reviewing some of the reflections glass range from Doc Johnson.. you appreciate their Beauty (lol) and how unique each one is.
