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

Take Me to the Tropics!

Dona Body Wash comes in an easy to use pump that makes the bathroom routine good, clean, and easy! It smells great, works great, and leaves me feeling clean and non-greasy.
Smells fantastic
Cleans well
Lathers nicely
I do wish that it was a little more moisturizing and absorbed into the skin better.

extremely useful review


Dona Body Wash is a silky, aphrodisiac infused body wash with a soothing tropical essence that will give you incredibly soft skin while still cleansing very mildly. It smells great. Fantastic, even. It will leave your skin feeling squeaky clean and lightly scented. It doesn’t foam as intensely as a soap bar would, or a body wash with a lot of surfectants and foaming agents, but there is just enough lather to show you that you are getting clean. A light scent will also last well beyond the shower and after you have dried off.

Texture / Consistency / Thickness / Viscosity

Dona Body Wash is a liquid body wash with a slick, smooth, velvety consistency. It is not too thick nor too thin, and does run down your skin if applied directly to the body. I found that it was easiest to apply and lathered best with a bath loofah. It is very natural feeling and does not feel sticky or greasy in any way. It also rinses well and doesn't leave behind any unwanted residue. Overall, it is a good quality body wash.

Taste / Aroma

If you can’t afford to actually take a trip to the tropics, this Camu Camu fragrance will make you feel like you have while taking a shower. It has a very beach-y, summer-y smell to it that is not at all overly sweet, but just right! It does have a fairly strong scent, but it is also subtle enough that it shouldn’t assault sensitive noses. This scent really does create a mini tropical vacation in the shower, and I love it!

This body wash is intended for external use only so I would not recommend ingesting or tasting this product. I'm sure it would taste horrible and also not be good for you.
    • Smells good
    • Strong smell
    • Subtle smell


Of course, the first thing I noticed was the tropical smell. Also, having slightly dry skin from the warm and humid Florida air, I was excited to see how the body wash would affect my skin. It lathers well and makes you fell nice and clean. It also leaves my skin feeling silky, soft, and smelling beautiful. One pump of the dispenser gives you a very generous amount of body wash. One pump into my bath loofah went a long way for me. The only cons with this body wash is that it doesn't really absorb into the skin as well as I would like it to and it gets somewhat drying after a while, so it won't fly come winter time. I find myself still needing to apply lotion after using this product. The scent is permeating and seeps into your skin, but it is very faint and not at all overwhelming.

As a body wash it works good for me, but I don't know that it would work well for people with dry or sensitive skin. As an aphrodisiac....I can't really say. I've noticed this topic can be very debatable, but I've never been able to notice a difference with any aphrodisiac infused products, and this product is no exception. My partner said he liked the scent on my skin, but that was about it.

Dona Body Wash comes in a pretty, durable, 9.5 oz bottle with an easy to use dispensing pump. Mine does get messy just a little bit when I lock and unlock it, but you can just wipe or rinse it off and it's really not that big of an issue. If you do decide to take it with you when traveling, I would recommend putting it inside of a zip-lock bag of some sort in case it does accidentally leak. I love the lace pattern on the this body wash and the rest of my Dona products. It has a very grown and sexy feel to it and blends in very well with other bath and beauty products. All of Dona products make a great gift and I definitely plan on purchasing these for friends and family members.

    • Easy to use / dispense

I have not had any reactions or breakouts with this body wash but it does contain glycerin and fragrance so I can't say this would work for anybody and everybody. There are a lot of ingredients listed on this product so I would suggest going over them to make sure it doesn't contain anything you might have a bad reaction to.
Follow-up commentary
Still a great smelling body wash that leaves you feeling nice and clean. I did seem to go through this product rather quickly, so I do wish that it came with more product. I absolutely love the pump top! I've even rinsed out the bottle when I was done so I could use it for other products. Overall, this body wash is great and worth buying.

    YAY! I'm so glad to read that this isn't harsh on the nose or skin! I just bought a few of the bath products. I have only used the Dona body polish and wasn't fond. I didn't hate it, but felt it was not worth the price so I was iffy about trying these other Dona products. I got this kind for my mom and a few others. We both have sensitive noses I loved your review! Kinda helped with my being nervous about it being too strong for us.

    Thanks for reading my review! I really hope you and everyone you got it for enjoys it. The smell is the best feature in my opinion. The scent is definitely noticeable but also very subtle. I don't have the most sensitive skin but I don't always do great with fragrance and this product was not harsh at all. I really hope you enjoy it!
