The Body Shop's Rainforest Moisture Shampoo(*): I love, love, love this shampoo, to infinity and beyond. It is free from parabens, silicones, sulphates and colourants which is a dream when you take into consideration how much junk most shampoos have in them. On top of being free from nastiness, it also smells gorgeous and a little goes a long way. It leaves my hair feeling clean and healthy and that is exactly what one needs from a shampoo. The shampoo from the rainforest range I use is 'moisture' but there are different types to chose from depending on your hair type. So, let me run you through all the types - there is moisture for dry/damaged hair, shine for normal to dry hair, balance for oily hair, volumising for fine hair and finally, radiance for coloured hair. They all contain community fair trade sugarcane from Paraguay.

Crystal spring natural deodorant (Salt of the Earth): I have been using this bad boy for a few months now and I love it. It doesn't contain aluminium which was a main worry for me when using deodorant. it's also free from fragrance, propellants, parabens and alcohol. I know its weird but I've also become rather attached to the fact you have to wet it to use it too.

Waitrose Pure Face Polish: On the waitrose website they have stated that it is natural care for sensitive skin, it is fragrance free and it is 100% naturally derived ingredients. What attracted me to it even more was that it only has six ingredients in, all of which were desirable nice ones like almond oil and Shea butter. On top of the fact it seemed so perfect formula-wise; it was only £2.99! So I snapped it up in my last food shop. I have been really enjoying using it. It leaves a bit of oil on afterwards as Shea butter products tend to but I like that as I find it extra moisturising!

The Body Shop's Aloe soothing night cream: I have been using this bad boy since I started working for the body shop a year ago. Its fragrance, colour and alcohol free and it doesn't contain any preservatives. I actually use this one day and night because I find it does absolute wonders for my skin! I want to use this forever and ever as it's super luxurious and at a fair price I think.   

Aloe Dent Whitening Toothpaste: Most Aloe Vera products designed for internal use disgust me, but this tooth paste is amazing. The fact I found a fluoride free toothpaste with whitening properties made me very happy and I was even happier when I initially got it home and discovered that it tasted just the same as my old minty toothpastes! Love this toothpaste! Another life long friend I think.

I have an abundance of non-beauty faves this month. I have been a total TV head recently, my favourite programs have been Our Girl on BBC, Bad bridesmaids on ITV, TOWIE and MIC are also a guilty pleasures of mine and I am glad they are back on at the same time to entertain me for three out of seven of these chilly autumn evenings. Music wise I have become a bit obsessed with Ben Howard's song 'Old Pine' and Jamelia's music, in particular 'No More' and 'Thank you' - the lyrics are as if I had written them for how I have been feeling this month and quite frankly Jamelia is one foxy, inspirational young women! As a fashion fave I have been loving my new bag from Zara, it's beaut. A food favourite has been cherry bakewells as my lovely uncle brought them round twice to cheer me up from this absolute pig of a month I have had to endure.
