I expected more with Donna

When I found that DONA was offering a shimmer spray, it didn't take long for me to snag one. I've had good luck with most of the DONA products and thought this would be no different. When opening the package and finding this beautiful blue, shimmery substance in a heavy glass spray bottle, I was excited! Only, I was disappointed with the contents performance. The shimmer was much too light to notice on my skin, the scent was absent.
Lovely packaging, Generous size, Low cost
No scent, Shimmer is much too light to notice

extremely useful review


A shimmer spray can be used on most parts of your body to add a glittery accent. The product goes on "wet" and dries quickly. This spray can be applied to your arms, legs, hair, chest, or other desired areas. Others have reported that this spray can be applied to linens and other objects to add a bit of shine.

Adding the shimmer spray before applying lotion or makeup is not advised. The spray can and will rub off easily so it's best to apply after the other products.

Perfect usage for intimate moments, night on the town, or just to add sparkle during your normal beauty routine.

Texture / Consistency / Thickness / Viscosity

The texture is a very thin, watery based liquid. The shimmer spray appears to be thick inside of the bottle, and comes out watery. When rubbing the liquid between my fingers, I didn't feel any texture other than the substance. Some have mentioned feeling the glitter, I however, did not.

This shimmer spray did not feel sticky or oily. With this benefit, the product could be easily applied to areas such as your hair without the greasy residue.

Taste / Aroma

The Blue Lotus shimmer spray appeared to have no fragrance. If you've tried other DONA products, you know how lovely they tend to smell. This aspect of the shimmer spray was very disappointing. However, if you are looking for a light shimmer without a scent, this would be a good choice.

This product is not meant to be consumed by mouth. I'd avoid applying this near or on your mouth and nasel areas for safety reasons.
    • Bad taste
    • No smell


I really wanted to love the DONA Blue Lotus Shimmer spray. After using it a few times, I decided it wasn't for me. The spray goes on thin and watery, be sure not to spray in close range or it will run. The shimmer spray does dry quickly and can be applied again. Other than the disappointment with no scent, I also noticed the lack of shimmer. Even after shaking the bottle and applying this spray to my skin again, the shimmer was much too light to notice.

This product is very simple to clean off of your skin. Just wash as you normally would, gently with soap and water. A baby or wet wipe would also be suffice in cleansing the spray.
    • Reapply often


The DONA Blue Lotus shimmer spray arrived in a 2 fl. oz. glass bottle with an easy to spritz silver top. The thick, clear glass of the bottle makes for an attractive view of the substance inside. A beautiful array of aqua blue liquid with a glittery shimmer. I had no problems with the product leaking.

This bottle of shimmer spray is something that I wouldn't mind keeping out in front of guests. There is nothing on the label that would make one believe this is sexual.

On the label, there is 4 round shapes that provide additional information:

Paraban Free
Cruelty Free
Petro. Deriv. Free

The shimmer spray along with other DONA products would make great gifts.
    • Discreet looking packaging
    • Does not leak
    • Would make a nice gift

Special Features

Personal comments

If you are considering to buy a gift for someone, I'd highly suggest preparing a gift basket of DONA products. Place shredded paper in the bottom of a basket, arrange various DONA products, and cover with a clear gift wrap.

Plumping Lip Balm
Massage Oil
Linen Spray

Rose Petals

Body Polish
Lingerie Wash
Perfume Gel
Body Drizzle
Herbal Bath Essence
Cromotherapy Bath Treatment

-Goji Berry: A berry that is native to China and contains an exceptional level of vitamin C (among the highest level contained in natural plants). It enhances both male and female libidos; as people age, their testosterone levels drop, reducing sex drive; intake of goji berry increases levels of testosterone.
