Dona plumping lip balm by System JO - review by FLIPxMODE

Too much tingle for me.

I don't plan on getting another tube of this lip balm nor do I plan on recommending it to anyone I know. I didn't like this product whatsoever. The tingle is too overwhelming for me to handle. I also got very irritated with how thick it felt on my lips.
price, scent, tasteless
tingle, thick, doesn't plump

somewhat useful review
I wasn't impressed with the Acai Dona Plumping Lip Balm by System Jo. The price and smell was the best thing about it. I'm not too fond of lip balms - or anything on my lips for that matter - but since I frequently get chapped lips, I thought I'd give this a try.

The label looks very cheaply made; I figured I shouldn't judge it by its label. I opened the cap, and smelled it. This lip balm smells very nice. Smells just like the Acai berry. The texture of the lip balm is pretty bumpy. I applied it to my lips and felt a sudden tingle - at first, I liked the feeling but after about 5-10 minutes that tingle felt overwhelming. The feeling is also very thick.

There is no taste to it at all, and the scent wore off a couple minutes after application. I didn't notice any plumping, which is what it's supposed to do. This lip balm also didn't help my chapped lips whatsoever which was the main reason I decided to try it out. I ended up wiping the balm off my lips because the feeling of it got irritating. I wouldn't recommend this lip balm to anyone.

I gave this lip balm to my girlfriend seeing as how I didn't want it, she also didn't like it that much and she's normally a very big fan of lip balms. The only thing she liked was how soft it made her lips feel.

The ingredients are:

Olea Europeae (Olive) Fruit Oil, Beeswax, Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa) Seed Butter, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter, Riicinus Communis (Castor) Seed Oil, Pentaerythrityl Tetraisostearate, Caprylic Capric Triglyceride, Stearalkonium Hectorite, Propylene Carbonate, Palmitoyl Hexapeptide-12, Simmondsia Chinesis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin E), Lonicera Caprifolium (Honeysuckle) Flower Extract, Menthoxypropanediol, Tetrahexyidecyl Ascorbate (Vitamin C), Vanillyl Butyl Ether, Flavor
Follow-up commentary
I still don't like the Dona plumping lip balm. I actually tossed this lip balm in the trash not long after my review.

    Oh ! I bet this was irritating to chapped lips. Sorry to hear it let ya down. I have had serious tingle lip glosses before like the Inject Potion, but I don't really love it enough to use it just to plump my lips. I expected this to be a good chap stick too, but I think I'll un-wishlist it. I am surprised it tingled though. I have Shunga's lip gloss meant to be used for a tingle during oral -- it'll burn your penis, that's for sure! -- so I use it as lip gloss some because it's so silky, but it is a tad intense on my lips, especially in the cold winter wind. I also think it's strange that the lip gloss here was bumpy. It really doesn't sound that nice. Sorry to hear that.
