Those of you who wear liquid eyeliner and waterproof mascara will understand me when I say this: removing makeup is HARD. It’s tedious work. Sometimes you can’t even get all of it off no matter how many times you rinse your face. This is why I often threw in the towel and went to sleep with dark little mascara crumbs all over my face. Don’t get me wrong, I wasn’t being lazy. I tried all sorts of makeup removers ranging from wipes to exfoliating scrubs to luxury brand liquids. They removed my foundation, but they were never strong enough to tackle my eyeliner and mascara in one go.
Then, the Memebox Black Friday Sale came around and my life was forever changed.
At the time, I was relatively new to K-beauty. I had no idea what I was looking for, and since all of the Black Friday boxes sold out within seconds (SOB), I scoured the doorbusters page for the best of the best. Among them was Botanic Farm’s Grain Ferment Cleansing Sherbet.
This product taught me that there are two different types of cleansers: Oil-Based Cleansers which are meant to remove oil-based makeup and other impurities, and Water-Based Cleansers which are used afterward to remove any remaining residue and keep the skin supple.
The Grain Ferment Cleansing Sherbet is an oil-based cleanser that comes in the form of a smooth, silky sherbet. When you use the spoon to scoop some of the product, it glides right through.
How to Use:
- Scoop a teaspoon of the product using the provider scooper.
- Lightly massage the product all over you face, focusing on your eyelids if you use heavy eyeliner and mascara. The goal is to absorb the makeup with the product and rub it around. Do not be afraid to look like a raccoon!
- Using lukewarm water, thoroughly rinse the product off of your face.
- Voila! Makeup-free face.

- Smooth, silky texture
