Dona body wash - soap by System JO - review by ScarletFox

Perfect for a Shower Junkie

A great body wash for anyone who is looking for something for sensitive skin or only wants to use products made with natural ingredients. Great for anyone who loves showers and looking for a luxe shower gel to keep in the bathroom. However, it is rather thin and a little does not go a long way if you like a big lather.
Gentle, lovely scent, left skin soft
Product was too thin

extremely useful review
I am a bit of a body wash junkie, though a picky one on top of it. I like my products natural, cruelty free and a great choice of scents. That lead me to be very much married to one brand for the last few years. However, I found the Dona Body Wash to be a refreshing change in my massive line up.

There are six scents to pick from, the one I received was Acai. It was packaged in the simple pump bottle. Now where as my normal body washes had color to them, this one was very gentle yellow much like light honey. The texture was a little thinner then I liked, which made me wonder how much I would have to use in order to get the lather that I normally like. With my normal body wash I need to only use about a dime size amount to get a nice lather in my poof, but with the Dona Body wash I found I had to use a couple of pumps which I would say is more like a quarter size.

As I wasn't sure what Acai smelled like in the first place, I found it to be very soft and refreshing as I washed. But it left me feeling very fresh and clean. I believe my exact words when I was smelled myself was 'I smell innocent!' Because that is what it made me think, a fresh innocent almost baby shampoo smell on my skin. It also left it feeling very soft and smooth, though I did still use a lotion afterward. For me this scent is perfect for when I want to use something else on top of it with out the scent of my body wash getting muddled into it.

Back to the packaging, it was very simple just wrapped in a normal plastic bag to protect against any leakage. But the bottle itself is made of a clear recyclable plastic.The bottle measures 6" high, and 2" in diameter, and is 9.5oz/269g in weight. There was a simple sticker along the top of the pump that proved it was never opened and showed what scent it was.

On the back of the bottle it lists all the ingredients as well as instructions, description of the product and company information.

Purified Water (Aqua), Sodium C 14-16 Olefin Sulfonate, Sodium Cocoamphoacetate, Cocamidopropyl Hydroxysultaine, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Glycerin, Saccharide Isomerate, Sodium Chloride, Punica Granatum (Pomegranate) Fruit, Lycium Barbarum (Goji) berry, Coffea Arabica (Coffee) Seed, Euterpe Oleracea (Açaí) Fruit, Morinda Citrifolia (Noni) Fruit, Camellia Sinensis (Green Tea) Leaf, Garcinia Mangostana (Mangosteen) Pericarp Extracts, Propanediol, Citric Acid, Benzyl Alcohol, Methylchloroisothiazolinone, Methylisothiazone, Disodium EDTA, Fragrance.

I think the only thing I was disappointed in with the ingredients was the first being water. It seemed to seriously dilute the body wash, which meant the ingredients where also diluted so you have to use more which makes it go faster in the shower.
Follow-up commentary
I continue to use this and enjoy it, espically now during the summer when I want to have only the smallest amount of fragrance on me because anything I wear/use tends to attract mosquitos. This continues to hold up and I have not run out of yet, though I know I will be picking up another bottle of it soon.
