Dona body lotion - body moisturizer by System JO - review by Katie09


I would not recommend this lotion. It's too thin and does not have long-lasting moisturizing effects. While the smell is great, it fades quickly and the aphrodisiacs had no effect on us.
Smells great, packaged attractively, relatively well-priced
Doesn't absorb into skin easily, thin & runny, aphrodisiacs did not affect us
Rating by reviewer:
extremely useful review


DONA by JO is an aphrodisiac infused line consisting of 20 different bath and body products. The name originates from Aphrodite, the Greek goddess of sexuality and love. It may also interest you to learn that this product line was created for women by other women. It is intended to be a ritual, consisting of five steps: relax, cleanse, nourish, illuminate and engage. This body lotion is part of step 3, the nourish step.
    • Foreplay
    • Mood enhancer

Texture / Consistency / Thickness / Viscosity

The texture of DONA body lotion is very much on the runny side. I would characterize the feel of it as thin and milky. It dispenses more than easily, quite fast in fact. I would recommend dispensing it into a cupped hand to avoid it getting messy. Once on the skin, the product will start to run unless it is spread around. After you begin to spread it out, it will stay in place. I did not experience any sticky, oily, or otherwise unpleasant residue after applying the lotion.

    • Thin

Taste / Aroma

Products from this line are infused with one of six proven aphrodisiacs. Please note for fragrance preference that Acai, Camu Camu, and Goji are types of berries, Lotus is a flower, and Mangosteen and Pomegranates are types of fruit. Also, expect the fragrances in the DONA product line to be on the lighter side, as the products are intended to be used together to create a layering effect. I purchased this Body Lotion in Acai. While the smell was wonderful, and just like an acai berry, I found the scent to be too light to use on its own without the other products I purchased. There is currently no taste added to these products.
    • Light smell
    • No taste
    • Smells good


With this product, a little goes a long way. It doesn't absorb as well as I'd like. When first applied, it will just sit on top of your skin like a film. You really have to spread the product out and work it into your skin. Once you do, the skin will feel moderately moisturized. It's not luxurious by any means, but you can feel that the skin is softer afterwards. However, I must report that the effects I did get were not particularly long lasting. I applied this lotion to one arm and left the other bare. A few hours later, there was little to no difference in how well moisturized each arm appeared and felt.

These pictures show the lotion first spread out on my skin and then fully rubbed in.

    • Reapply often


DONA Body Lotion comes in a 8.5 fl oz plastic bottle with a pump style top. The top does lock into place for travel. The label on this product has a print of a darker orange lace over a lighter metallic orange background. The front of the bottle lists the product name, what the product is, that it contains aphrodisiacs, the scent, and some of the eco-friendly bullet points (more on that later). The back of the bottle has brief instructions, the ingredients, and the product's official website. Here are all the details:

Directions: Apply liberally to entire body as often as needed.

Ingredients: Purified Water, Heptyl Undecylenate, Cetearyl Olivate, Sorbitan Olivate,Carthamus Tinctorius (Safflower) Oil, Propanediol, Saccharide Isomerate, Caffeine, Maltodextrin, Sodium Hyaluronate, Beta Glucan,
Panthenol, Hydrolyzed Vegetable Protein, Allantoin, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract, Xanthan Gum, Disodium EDTA, Algae Oil, Passion Fruit(Passiflora Edulis) Seed Oil, Rice Bran (Oriza Sativa) Oil, Açaí(Euterpe Oleracea) pulp Oil, Babassu (Orbignya Oleifera) Seed Oil,Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin E), Xanthan Gum, Phenoxyethanol,Ethylhexylglycerin, Myrciaria Dubia (Camu Camu) Fruit, Fragrance

Website: (This link was not up and working at time of review)

Personally, I found the information offered with this product to be very minimal. I had to go to various websites to research the product on my own. It would have been nice if the product came with a hang tag or fold out label with information on all the steps, the scents and actions of the various aphrodisiacs, and the eco-friendly qualities.

    • Easy to use / dispense
    • Minimal
    • Travel friendly

Special Features

In addition to being aphrodisiac infused, DONA also claims to be a green product line for the following reasons:

-created with natural and naturally derived ingredients
-obtained from renewable resources
-eco-friendly and biodegradable
-contains no mineral oil, petrolatum, lanolin, and other petroleum derivatives
-contains no parabens, sulfates, harsh chemicals, or preservatives
-cruelty-free and not tested on animals


As I have already discussed most of the qualities of this product, I think the only thing I have left to talk about is whether or not it lived up to the claim of increasing sensuality by being aphrodisiac infused. Sadly, while the scent was quite pleasing, this did nothing extra for my partner and me. The Acai is meant to have stamina prolonging qualities, but we didn't notice any difference. I'd like to give this product the benefit of the doubt and say maybe with daily use there would be more results.
Follow-up commentary
At this point, I'm only using the rest of the bottle because it seems a waste not to. This product is so thin that you just end up applying twice as much of it. This, of course, counteracts the fact that you get a large bottle of it for such a good price. Better to spend a couple more dollars on something else and get a product where you can get results without having to use so much of it.
