Dona plumping lip balm by System JO - review by carebear712

lips that smell SO good

DONA plumping lip balm has a pretty even number of pros and cons. If you can get past the price and the fact that it does not have sun protection, it may be worth it for you. I love that it smells so good, but for me it is not worth the full price (on sale is a different story!).
-smells great
-not sticky or greasy, makes lips glossy and smooth
-long lasting
-I couldn't tell it had aphrodisiac in it
-no sun protection

extremely useful review
Although it did love the smell of this lip balm, I was disappointed that it did not smell like the other DONA by JO acai scented products. It is aphrodisiac infused like the other DONA by JO products, but I did not notice any effects of the aphrodisiac. This could vary from user to user though.

To me, I did not notice a lot of “plumping” effect. It did make my lips feel a bit fuller, but neither my husband or I could see a difference visually. It did feel to me a lot like a medicated lip balm would, it has a tingly type feeling. The texture is somewhat gritty feeling, especially at first. But after it’s on your lips it leaves them very smooth and soft. It has a similar consistency to most lip balms, not too thick and not too thin. Your lips will remain kissable since this lip balm does not make your lips feel too wet or sticky. This stuff is pretty long lasting too. You can detect the smell on your own lips, but the smell is more noticeable to others around you, which is good since it has a very good smell.

The lip balm is white and does not add color, but does give your lips a glossy shiny appearance. The tube is the same size as your standard chapstick/lipbalm at .15oz (4.25kg). One drawback is that it does not conain any sunscreen protection (at least I could not find it indicated to have any in it). The tube is black and has a label stuck around it that appears to be one solid piece when lined up right, but it was not a solid piece and was not sealed (at least mine was not anyway).

All in all I don’t believe that it is worth the price, but it is a good product. I might at some point try some of the other scents, but it would have to be on sale.
Follow-up commentary
I still like this lip balm, but not quite as much. I did not get to use it all because after time the consistency of it changed. But in all fairness it may be that it just got too warm, I am not sure but I went to put some on and the texture was very grainy and somewhat greasy.
