So I've never really posted about beauty products here before, but I'm really liking this Rosehip facial cleanser by Essano. It uses natural ingredients and is made by a boutique company in New Zealand. I love the scent, and it's really gentle on my skin.

Especially with living in China where there's a lot of air pollution, it's so important to keep my skin clean. Plus it's also really wonderful to be supporting a local business from back home.

Also as a designer/illustrator, I was really drawn to the packaging! Was the reason I picked it up in the first place. As you may know, I absolutely love anything to do with roses so it really won me over.

I styled it in this shot with a beautiful Chinese fan my husband picked up for me and some gorgeous silk peonies. I wish they were real, but I'm not in the southern hemisphere. I'm insanely jealous that I'm not experiencing Spring at the moment. It's my favourite time of year and it's a little depressing having two winters in one year. Although it means I'll get two Summer's when I return.

PS. If you follow Essano Skin on Instagram, you can go in the draw to win one of their many give-aways.
