Review: Shara Shara Kissing Sugar Lip Scrub

3. July 2015

A quick review on a tiny but helpful product, the Shara Shara Kissing Sugar Lip Scrub! Especially if you have often dry or chapped lips lip scrub should be known to you. There are many alternatives to make DIY- lipscrub using honey and sugar, but sometimes it is just more convenient to have a ready made lipscrub at hands.

Shara Shara Kissing Sugar Lip Scrub

Shara Shara is kind of a newer brand compared to Etude House or Missha etc. It attracts the attation mainly by a very girly and cute packaging design, using bright colors and illustrations. The subtitle of their official page is “the romantic lounge for ladies”. You’ll find a lot of doll faces and comic figures on their products, too. I reviewed the Shara Shara Real Sauce sheet mask  previously and I have some other Shara Shara products which still need to be reviewed, mainly from my MeMeBox purchases of last year :D (unfortunatelly, they don’t ship to Europe anymore, but if you are from the US you still might to check it out). The Shara Shara Kissing Sugar Lip Scrub is from MeMeBox, too, but I still had another lip scrub which I wanted to use up before starting to use this one.

First thing to notice for this lip scrub is the doll face depicted on the tin, where the lip scrub comes in. Depending on your taste you might regard the design as cute or too childish. For me personally it is not the prettiest design, because I don’t think that the doll face is specially cute :’D Nevertheless, I can understand if people love the design. The colors of the tin are pastell colors to have everything fit in this dolly-girly image.

Inside the tin you’ll find the product, which looks like a solid lipbutter with some dark particles inside. The Shara Shara Kissing Sugar Lip Scrub contains 10 g of product and consists mainly of brown sugar, avocado oil, honey extract, shea butter and vitamin E derivate Tocopheryl Acetate. apart from the brown sugar for exfoliating it also contains Walnut Shell particles.

Of course, the disadvantage of having a tin is that you have to touch the product either by your (hopefully clean) fingers, or use a spatula in order to keep the product as clean as possible. I preferr lip scrubs with a more creamy formula which come in a tube which is definitively more hygienic. Other than that the product is easy to take out, since the shea butter is melting easily. There is also a good amount of sugar and walnut shell particles to ensure an effective scrub. After using it and washing the product of your lips the lips feel soft and also hydrated because of the Shea butter (and probably also the other ingredients like avocado and argan oil) and they feel like you have applied lipbalm. The taste of the product is flowery/perfumy, which is a bit of a sad point here. Of course there is the sweetness from the sugar, but I would have preferred a more yummy scent than perfume.

Alltogether the Shara Shara Kissing Sugar Lip Scrub does a good job as lip scrub and makes the lips feel soft and nourished and nice afterwards. It is not expensive either, so if you don’t mind the lack of nice taste and like the packaging you will do nothing wrong with this. I personally will use it up, but I will probably try out another more tasteful lipscrub after this one :D You can get this lip scrub for 4730 won (~5 US$) from testerkorea for example.

    Oh, this post it’s so useful to me ._.. Today my lips are awful, so dry, chapped. And just because yesterday decided to use another matte lip tint (not the Tony Moly one, that it’s so moisturizing) and my lips in few hours were so dry and rough.
    I’ll check this. Despite I love DIY, this is more convenient for a lazy like me haha

    Thank you for this review!!

    Ich hatte diesen Scrub mal in einer Meme Box drin und fand den nicht ganz so gut. Also gepeelt hat er super und die Lippen waren danach auch ordentlich gepflegt, allerdings fast zu gut. Bei mir blieb so ein leichter Fettfilm zurück und meine Lippenränder wurden ganz rot :/ Vielleicht habe ich auch einen Inhaltsstoff nicht vertragen.

    Wegen dem pH Wert von den Dr. Hauschka-Produkten weiss ich leider auch nicht so genau Bescheid. Ich setzte mich da selten mit dem auseinander ^^ Auf der Homepage schreiben sie aber leicht sauer bis neutral.

    The packaging is so cute! I want to try this because I have super dry lips, especially when I wake up in the morning.

    Hello! That sounds like a great product, since your lip feels moisturised after washing it off! Such a pity that it didn’t taste like walnuts~ i would prefer it to smell delicious too!

    I love the design :D But you’re right with the hygenic aspect. As I have the scrub by myself I can totally understand that :D

    The packaging is so adorable! Good to know that the lip scrub moisturizes you lips D

    I don’t fancy using my fingers to get product out too. It’s unhygieni :(
