Dona shimmer body spray

Shimmer by System JO

Add resource

lightly scented, delicate shimmer, turquoise body glitter.

I wouldn't suggest getting this spray because the scent fades after 5 minutes and the glitter doesn't last very long.

I wish I could have rated this higher. If everything about it had lasted longer, I would have loved it more.
pretty sparkly glitter.
scent doesn't last long.
glitter comes off too easy.

extremely useful review


This is a spray that can be used anytime. You can use it all over your body to add a little sparkle to your day or you can put it in special places to draw extra attention to them for an evening out. This will work for anyone who wants to use it. It is paraben free, cruelty free and natural. With as much as you need to use to get this to show, it wont last you very long.

Texture / Consistency / Thickness / Viscosity

The texture of this body spray is just a little bit thicker than water. This body spray feels just like water, however, the glitter does add a little bit of a gritty feeling to it. That feeling goes away once the spray dries, leaving the skin soft to the touch. It is easy to pour, but you don't need to because the bottle it comes in has a spray top on it. I would have to say that as long as you don’t rub or wipe at it, then yes, it will stay in place. There is no greasy or sticky feeling to this spray.

Taste / Aroma

I ordered the Blue Lotus and was looking forward to getting it in my mailbox. As soon as I received it in the mail and got the box opened, I went into the bathroom and sprayed some on my chest. The smell I noticed at the time reminded me of children's bubble solution. I shook it -- and then took the top off the bottle -- and smelled it, I got a light citrusy floral smell. The heat in the mail caused it to separate, so the smell was strange. After shaking it, I like the smell, but it is really light and doesn't last very long. The smell is gone within 5 minutes of putting it on, so you could wear your favorite perfume without this interfering with it.

I wouldn't eat this product as it is not meant to be eaten, but I put some on my wrist and licked it. I didn't notice any taste.
    • Light smell


The scent only lasted about 5 minutes after it dried. Since the scent fades so fast, there are no changes in the scent. This scent stayed the same the whole time I smelled it, which wasn't very long. What scent you get is very faint. Anyone should be able to use this. One thing that I found out about this spray is that it takes longer to dry if you put it on right after a shower, and if your skin is a little moist or sweaty. The glitter will wear off after a while. You might have to reapply. If you want it off quickly, you can wash it off with a wet rag. I like the color of the glitter and I like the scent that you get, but I would love it even more if the scent lasted a lot longer. When looking at the bottle, the liquid is clear and the tiny specks of glitter (looks larger in the bottle) is turquoise.

On my wrist. This is right after you spray it on, before it dries.

On my wrist. This is the shimmer after it dries -- a little too light and delicate.
    • Reapply often


This is packaged in a 2oz rectangle glass bottle. It has a spray top with a silver cap on it. The users instruction on the back of the bottle are simple, they say "spray onto desired parts of the body."
This is a discreet bottle, it has a blue label that says shimmer spray. Being as it is a glass bottle, I wouldn't suggest traveling with it, unless you wrap it up really well. Other than it being in a glass bottle, I had no problems with it spilling when tipped on its side, so if you wanted to throw it in a purse or bag to reapply later in your evening, you could do that.

    • Discreet looking packaging
    • Easy to use / dispense
    • Would make a nice gift

Personal comments

When I picked this, the picture showed an iridescent glitter. I got it in the mail today to be surprised that it was a turquoise blue color. I'm not disapointed because I like the color.


I put this on when I went to get my hubby for his night home. I was really disappointed. Most of the glitter on my left shoulder and chest had disappeared because of the wind blowing in my window and the seat belt rubbing against it. As for the aphrodisiac property, no such luck with this spray, hubby didn't jump me. He didn't even notice anything, no glitter or smell.

    I ordered it for the same reason you did, because it pictured a silver glitter. However, I wasn't happy at all when I got it and it's blue. I'm hoping they will allow me to send it back for the spray that is silver glitter since I got it on sale and I will not use this one. I also hope they change the product pictures.
