Dona plumping lip balm by System JO - review by PeaceToTheMiddleEast

Dona Plumping Lip Balm/Scent Is Goji Berry And Peach Melba!

So with all the hype about the Dona products by System Jo, I had to give the line a try myself. I am so happy I went with the Scent I chose. The Goji Berry lip balm is wonderful you can really feel the tingle on your lips as you’re wearing it. I did wish it had some type of flavor but that is not the case with this but I don't mind because I would probably be linking it off my lips.
Plumps lips, Smells great, Lasts long,
No flavor

extremely useful review
The Dona by Jo Goji Berry lip plumping balm is a balm that is part of the Illuminate step in the Dona Rituals. The Illuminate process of this aspect is to enhance your natural beauty and space. This lip balm can be used by anyone as long as they don't mind the tingle and their lips plumping up. It really feels nice and soft on the lips.

There is not too much texture to this lip balm it goes on nice and smooth and does not feel greasy on the lips. There is also no stickiness with this balm. The color of the Goji Berry lip balm is a pale yellow. This lip balm lasted me for about a 1 hour and a half I was not expecting that at all.

There is a long ingredient list for this lip balm as with any product do a test before applying to make sure you are not allergic. Below is a list of the ingredients.

Olea Europeae (Olive) Fruit Oil, Beeswax, Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa) Seed Butter, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter, Riicinus Communis (Castor) Seed Oil, Pentaerythrityl Tetraisostearate, Caprylic Capric Triglyceride, Stearalkonium Hectorite, Propylene Carbonate, Palmitoyl Hexapeptide-12, Simmondsia Chinesis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin E), Lonicera Caprifolium (Honeysuckle) Flower Extract, Menthoxypropanediol, Tetrahexyidecyl Ascorbate (Vitamin C), Vanillyl Butyl Ether, Lycium Barbarum (Goji Berry) Fruit, Flavor.

This does not have a taste to it at all; it goes on more like if you were to get a plain lip balm with no flavoring to it. The smell had thrown me off at first. Until I read the tube and realized that it is a Peach Melba smell. I only smelled a hint of Peach and did not know what the Melba was until I looked it up. Google comes in handy. "The Peach Melba is actually a classic dessert that was invented in 1892 by a French chef in a hotel". It was a dessert of peaches and vanilla ice cream. With this product I smell more of the peaches.

Special Features
So I was wondering if it really did work for the lip plumping effect. You know some things say they plump the lips and actually don't work. I was praying Dona did not let me down. So I applied it to my lips but before I did this I made sure to check my lips in the mirror to see how they looked beforehand. When I applied it after 10 seconds I can start to feel the tingle it is not too bad of a tingle. Then I waited and went to look in the mirror and actually noticed my bottom lip was out more I thought this was cool. It actually did work on my lips. You can feel the tingle throughout the whole time you are wearing this lip balm. I also wanted to add even though there is no taste if you do happen to lick your lips and get it on your tongue you will feel a mild tingle which is not to bad but not to tasty either.


I did not receive any special kind of packaging with this product it came to me in the box of all the things I ordered. It is in a black tube and it came with a yellow sticker that covers the Goji Berry line of products. I think this was to prevent it from opening up by accident. The tube is 0.15 ounces and can easily be put in your pocket like any other lip balm of this size. It is travel friendly and it is discreet as well. Around the tube it has the ingredients list and also the name of the product and it shows the DonabyJo website on it.

Here is a pic of the tube:
I actually enjoy this lip balm. Move over Not Soap Radio you have some competition on your hands. I am looking forward to trying them all. I also did not have any problems with this lip balm making my lips chap after it wore off. Like I said it lasted for about a 1 hour and a half. The tingle feels really good so you can tell it is working. I would recommend giving these a try.

I am satisfied that I chose the Goji Berry scent first. I am pleased with everything that I own in this line except for one, but that is another story and review.

I also wanted to give a big thanks to Cookie Monster Mike for giving me the information on all the Dona products. It really helped out in writing my first review on this lip balm.
Follow-up commentary
I have them all now and there are some that are not so pleasant and the rest I love. They still make my lips tingle when I use them.
