Dona plumping lip balm by System JO - review by TheSinDoll

Plump Me Up

I enjoy the Dona Plumping Lip Balm. It has a nice scent and it softens my lips. Although it has a tingling effect, I didn't notice any actual plumping to my lips. However, I would still recommend it as an effective lip balm.

extremely useful review
Dona Plumping Lip Balm comes in six flavors: Mangosteen, Pomegranate, Acai, Goji Berry, Blue Lotus, and my favorite, Camu Camu. The flavor of my balm is actually Camu Camu, Lemon Drop. It smells like a mix of lemon and spearmint. It goes on clear with no shine. There’s no greasy, oily, or sticky feel to it, and I really enjoy how smooth it leaves my lips. There’s no taste, so you won’t be tempted to lick it all off and reapply. As a matter of fact, you won’t have to reapply often at all. I tend to mush my lips together and notice (surprisingly) that it's still there. This balm also locks in moisture really well. However, despite the slight tingling sensation, I didn’t notice any plumping effect. The tingling sensation only lasted about 15 to 20 seconds, and it wasn't painful or harsh at all.

Dona Plumping Lip Balm comes in a .15 ounce tube. As with any regular lip balm, twist the bottom and more balm is pushed to the top. Its size makes it pocket friendly and easy to slip into any bag or purse.

Manufactured by System Jo, Dona offers a variety of great bath and beauty products. Looking through the entire line, you could put together a wonderful gift basket for just about anyone. Overall, all of the Dona products are very safe, and this one is no exception. You won’t find any phthalates, sulfates, triclosan, or parabens in this product.

Summer is here and my face is getting sun. I'm always reaching for something to go on my lips while I'm in and out from the house to the pool during day. This serves that purpose very well. As I mentioned, I didn't experience any plumping effect, but I've been using this lip balm and loving it for a few weeks now. As a regular lip balm, it works great. It smells great as well. It leaves my lips feeling very soft and moisturized.
Follow-up commentary
I still use this lip balm. It sits on the table next to where I write. While you might find that it's a bit on the expensive side for a balm that doesn't actually plump, it still smells really good and leaves my lips feeling very moisturized. I really enjoy it!
