I am a bit of a body wash junkie, though a picky one on top of it. I like my products natural, cruelty free and a great choice of scents. That lead me to be very much married to one brand for the last few years. However, I found the Dona Body Wash to be a refreshing change in my massive line up.
There are six scents to pick from, the one I received was Acai. It was packaged in the simple pump bottle. Now where as my normal body washes had color to them, this one was very gentle yellow much like light honey. The texture was a little thinner then I liked, which made me wonder how much I would have to use in order to get the lather that I normally like. With my normal body wash I need to only use about a dime size amount to get a nice lather in my poof, but with the Dona Body wash I found I had to use a couple of pumps which I would say is more like a quarter size.
As I wasn’t sure what Acai smelled like in the first place, I found it to be very soft and refreshing as I washed. But it left me feeling very fresh and clean. I believe my exact words when I was smelled myself was ‘I smell innocent!’ Because that is what it made me think, a fresh innocent almost baby shampoo smell on my skin. It also left it feeling very soft and smooth, though I did still use a lotion afterward. For me this scent is perfect for when I want to use something else on top of it with out the scent of my body wash getting muddled into it.
Back to the packaging, it was very simple just wrapped in a normal plastic bag to protect against any leakage. But the bottle itself is made of a clear recyclable plastic.The bottle measures 6″ high, and 2″ in diameter, and is 9.5oz/269g in weight. There was a simple sticker along the top of the pump that proved it was never opened and showed what scent it was.
On the back of the bottle it lists all the ingredients as well as instructions, description of the product and company information.

I think the only thing I was disappointed in with the ingredients was the first being water. It seemed to seriously dilute the body wash, which meant the ingredients where also diluted so you have to use more which makes it go faster in the shower.
