Naruko was one of those Asian skincare brands I keep seeing in Watsons and SM Department Stores and never paid attention to until my brother saw the words “Tea Tree” in their products. It’s from Taiwan, by the way. Out of sheer curiosity, I picked up the Tea Tree Night Gelly to use on days when I’m dealing with breakouts.
