D’Ran Cosmetics Part 1: Tea Tree Series

There’s one question that often comes up in the female expat
What is a good Korean skincare product for troubled skin?  

While browsing the Cosmo Beauty Expo I was invited to the D’Ran
Cosmetics booth to learn about their product lines and see how they were
influencing the Korean skincare industry. I’m so pleased to find this
brand and you can imagine my excitement when they gave me products to
try to see what I thought of them. After 2 days I loved the results so
much I immediately recommended it to my friends who attended the
expo. My husband even commented that my skin looked radiant and he was
wondering why it suddenly changed. So here is Part 1 of my review of the products
I’ve been using by D’Ran and how my skin has reacted thus far. 

This post is all about the tea tree series. I’ll have another one out soon reviewing a couple other products from various lines, so check back for more!

WONDER Tea Tree Spot Treatment

My go-to product has always been the tea tree oil so I loved the fact this line is full of the active ingredient and makes my skin feel fresh and elastic. I started using this product alone and was immediately impressed with the results. I caught one pimple at the first sign of appearing and applied the gel right away. It drastically reduced it’s appearance throughout the day (applied 2 or 3 times during the day). Instead of growing the zit was only visible for a day or 2 before
it disappeared. Usually a pimple lasts about 5 days before going away and I’m left
with a red spot for a few more days. This reduced the lifespan and redness of the pimple while quickly healing it.

The ingredients include 58% tea tree leaf extract which acts as the anti bacterial agent and willow bark extract which is anti-inflammatory. It also includes other various root extracts. The product is free of parabens and mineral oil which are 2 ingredients I choose to avoid. Make sure to apply it with your finger or place the product on a Q-tip before putting it on your face. If you use the wand directly on your face you will put bacteria back into the product, and  no one wants to do that.

WONDER Tea Tree Essence 

I’ve noticed the essence (texture of a serum) is really helping
reduce my red spots that are left from pimples, and have prevented more from
occurring. My skin is usually in good condition, but I do tend to break out if I eat
fried food. So in the name of research I ate a giant burger and fries last
week, then waited for the pimples to arrive! I’ve been using the tea tree serum in the morning under the
snail cream then apply my makeup as usual. One week late, no pimples. Not even a sign of
one. I have to credit the tea tree essence for keeping my skin healthy and in check this week (though I’ve been eating junk). The product is also packed with an awesome ingredient list including tea tree extract, willow bark, and many other oils and extracts that I can’t pronounce. It leaves my skin fresh and primed for a face cream and/or SPF then my foundation.

Big thumbs up for both of these products. I highly recommend them and will be repurchasing them in the future. Check out the full list of ingredients, products, and details about the Wonder Tea Tree Series on their website.
