Dona body mist lotion - body moisturizer by System JO - review by Eva Schwaltz

Smells nice but a bit too sticky

The body lotion in this line of products is nice, however this mist is too tacky and sticky to the point where I hardly use it and really don't want to.
Large bottle, inexpensive, variety of scents
Sticky, leaves residue on the skin, heavy for a mist

useful review


This is a body mist designed to be used topically on the skin anywhere on the body. It is a mist lotion so it feels a lot heavier than a regular body mist would. I wouldn't use this on the face because I think the ingredients might be too harsh.

I have the Camu Camu, but you can get this in a variety of other scents as well.

Purified Water, Caprylic Capric Glycerides, Polyglycerol-6 Dioleate, Glyceryl Caprylate Caprate, Propanediol, Saccharide Isomerate, Passion Fruit (Passiflora Edulis) Seed Oil, Rice Bran (Oriza Sativa) Oil, Açaí (Euterpe Oleracea) pulp Oil, Babassu (Orbignya Oleifera) Seed Oil, Phenoxyethanol, Ethylhexylglycerin, Myrciaria Dubia (Camu Camu) Fruit, Fragrance

Nothing in this product irritated me, but those sensitive to fragrances and other stuff will probably not like this.

Texture / Consistency / Thickness / Viscosity

I didn't like the feeling of this on my skit at all. It sprays in very concentrated bursts and it feel just yucky when you try to rub it in. It feels like a creamy oil which then becomes sticky. It's strange and I have no other lotions or mists that do this. It kind of reminds me of sun screen but this is worse. If it were any thicker, it would probably be very tacky. It has a lot of oils in it so it doesn't absorb right away, and when it becomes slightly sticky, all I want to do is wash it off.

Taste / Aroma

I chose the Camu Camu which is a lovely scent although it kind of reminds me of baby wipes, not sure why. It's a very light floral scent that doesn't linger for too long. I would say after half an hour I don't notice it anymore and I'm certainly not in a rush to reapply it.


I really wanted to love this product because of the scent. Most of the other Dona products I have I chose to get in pomegranate but I wanted to try other scents just to compare. Camu Camu is much lighter than the Pomegranate and not as irritatingly sweet as Acai.

I really don't recommend this unless sticky lotions don't bother you. After all, it comes in a nice big 8.5 ounce bottle at a reasonable price.

    thanks for the review! I liked it but thought it was a little bit heavy too. The smell was awesome and I thought out weighted the heaviness..
