Dona arousing herbal bath essence - bath oil by System JO - review by zj22

Arousing.... Yeah, or Not.

I love Dona products, I really really do. So having one that was such a huge disappointment just left me shaking my head. All this product does is scent your bath water, so you are quite literally pouring your money down the drain.
Smells good.
Doesn't work. Overpriced for what it does.

Dona "Arousing" Herbal Bath Essences is supposed to be added to your bath and make you feel... aroused? It doesn't, and sadly it doesn't even make your skin soft. What it does do is make your bath water, not you, smell really good. For nearly $10.00 this might not seem like much of a price to pay for some; personally I'll keep my free odorless bath water.

Texture / Consistency / Thickness / Viscosity

In the bottle it has the same consistency as most shower gels, or maybe a really thin bubble bath. In the water it dissolves into nothing. It isn't greasy and won't leave a slippery oily film in the bath tub. It's super easy to pour because of its relative thinness too.
    • Thin

Taste / Aroma

The acai does smell wonderful, it's tropical and sweet. If all you're looking for is scent then this would be a great product for you. Arousing Herbal Bath Essences will make your bath water smell really good, and fairly strongly. It could be comparable to what a rain forest might smell like. So if you want to soak and enjoy the pleasant aroma then yeah, you'll enjoy this product.
    • Smells good
    • Strong smell


On the bottle it says to dissolve one or two cap-fulls into your bath water. Dissolve being the appropriate word. You might think that using this product might leave you tingling, or give you bubbles, or will leave you smelling good; but it does none of those things. All it does is make your bath water a bit cloudy for a few minutes, and then make the water smell. The scent doesn't even transfer to your skin or absorb in.

After your bath you won't be soft skinned, clean, or aroused. This product is just a huge disappointment and waste of money. To top things off, this product warns about the high risk of allergy concerns. Ingredients that might worry some are glycerin, ginseng root, ginkgo biloba, centella asiatica leaf, paulina cupana, ptychopetalum olacoides root, turnera diffusa leaf, arnica montana flower, hydrogenated castor oil, and acai fruit.
    • Allergy concerns
    • Performance


Comes in a standard Dona bottle with a blue label and screw top lid. You get four and a quarter fluid ounces for your $9.99. This product does boast being paraben free, cruelty free, natural, and petroleum derivative free.
    • Does not leak
    • Easy to use / dispense
    • Minimal
