Shara Shara Bee Tox Spot Cream - review


I received this product in Memebox Global #17.

Previously I had received quite a few Shara Shara makeup products and those were complete rubbish, but I promised myself I would keep an open mind when it came to the brand's skincare range.

I've been using this for a couple of months now - on preggers blemishes and, now, post-birth hormonal blemishes - and unfortunately I've noticed no impact. Foo.

An aside: be aware that this product expires in November this year (at least mine does), so if you're like me and have a lot of stuff sitting around waiting to be used, don't leave this one in the cupboard for too long.

Shara Shara claims/product details:
  • A spot cream for acne-prone skin
  • Formulated with bee venom extracts to help control excessive sebum secretion
  • Also contains six kinds of herbal extracts to mitigate troubled spots and blemishes for achieving clearer, more well-balanced skin
  • Apply it on acne to help suppress and reduce inflammation and speed up healing time
  • Botanical extracts help soothe the skin and relieve pain
  • RRP $18 for 15ml


I've had a look online and this product seems to have been pretty well-received (that may just be because it contains the magic words 'bee venom'), but I haven't found an actual review of it that says whether it's any good. You might have more luck!

To start with, I used this as a spot treatment for the occasional blemish, and I noticed no impact. What I did then was change to using it on a daily basis and over my whole face (my spots don't discriminate and arise wherever they so desire, so I thought I might as well). I haven't noticed any change and my face is just as clogged up as usual. Mind you, I get blackheads rather than any other kind of blemish, so perhaps you'd have more luck with your run-of-the-mill pimple variety.

I don't think this product lives up to its claims at all. It also has a weird smell and it's not something I'm enjoying putting on my face. Plus it feels pretty drying on and seems to sit on top of your skin, rather than being absorbed.

Hmph. If you've used this and have something to say about it, do let me know - I'd be interested to hear how it fares on stock-standard acne.
