They promise to diminish the appearance of dark circles for a brighter, wide-awake look. They work at lifting, tightening, and firming skin around the eyes. Bee venom cream helps smooth the delicate skin around your eyes while keeping it moisturized and hydrated. Bee venom in the creams is used to lessen the appearance of dark circles, bags, and fine lines around the eyes.

However, there are no legitimate scientific studies that prove the benefit of bee venom when used topically or injected. There has also been a lack of clinical trials to judge the effect of venom.
