[REVIEW] Aritaum Fair Smile Fermentation Lip and Eye Remover

Aritaum ~ 7 000 Won / 120mL
Get It Beauty 1st Place Winner (2013)

I have really oily eyelids which prompts me to wear waterproof eye makeup. It's essential that I find a good makeup remover and luckily, I've discovered several affordable options from the drugstore price range. Although I had really enjoyed Missha's Green Tea Makeup Remover (reviewed here), my curiosity drew me to Aritaum's Lip and Eye Makeup Remover. This remover has won the Get It Beauty blind test with high points in effectiveness and low irritant. 

It claims to have fermented grains [extracts] - rice, beans, and barley - to gently clear lip and eye makeup.

It's a dual phase makeup remover which you have to shake first in order for it to be effective. Once you shake it, it becomes a cloudy mixture that is crazy effective at removing makeup. There is a stopper with a little hole which helps to control the amount you dispense. I usually soak a cotton pad and hold that to my eyes for a few seconds before just gently swiping it off. My eyeliner slips right off and even my most stubborn waterproof mascara comes off with a bit of gentle rubbing. 

It has a very soft floral scent that is barely noticeable. It's a little bit like the smell of rice water.

I usually go through two pieces of cotton pad for each eye. My eyes neither get blurry nor irritated when I use this remover. It also doesn't feel as oily as other makeup removers can feel. I still follow up with water to rinse off the residue though. Korean makeup removers usually work pretty well for me but I think this is the best one I've used so far. 

Thanks for reading! If you've any questions, please feel free to leave it in the comments.


  1. I've been frantically searching for a good makeup remover for ages, most of the ones i tried just didn't remove my makeup too well, especially the mascara, but this one sounds really good, might give it a try *_*



    1. Give this one a try! It's been making my makeup removal so easy. I usually wear a mascara base so it makes my mascara even harder to remove but this does the job well! :)

  2. Thank you so much
    That was very informative
    But can you please try it with liptints, and share with us your experience, because they're hard to remove
