Diva Stuff Beauty Bundle Giveaway - $40 value (all natural skin care products)

Last month Vanessa, a representative from Diva Stuff, contacted me and asked if I would be interested in trying their all natural beauty and skin care products.  I was hesitant at first, because as you know, I make my own lotions, face cream, body spray, etc.  But I always try and keep an open mind when companies contact me - I'm very exclusive here on The Tasty Alternative...only the best, most natural, non-toxic and (if possible) environmentally friendly products.  So I did some searching around on the Diva Stuff website with my trusted Skin Deep Cosmetic Database Resource and checked through quite a few products and the ingredients.  Everything looked all natural with ingredients I recognized.  But you will have to contact the company for the entire list of ingredients.  For some reason, they are not all listed on each product.  I know many of you out there suffer from severe food allergies, so please, PLEASE, make sure you know exactly what you are putting on your skin and email the company to verify the ingredients if need be.  

Before we jump into the giveaway, I want to share two product reviews with you.  Here's my honest opinion about these products.

Black Charcoal,black Walnut Hull And Vodka Detox 
& Acne Soap Bar, for Face & Body 6oz
I don't have a huge issue with face or body acne (just your typical monthly acne),  but I love charcoal (I take it internally for bloating) and so I was totally intrigued by this soap.  I can honestly say, after using this soap for about a week, that it did help clear up the small clogged pours on my chest, shoulder, and back.  Just a few things to consider: (1) it's black (obviously) so it will transfer onto your shower and make a bit of a mess if you don't have a nice spot for bar soap, and (2) it has a fairly strong scent.  I asked for the full ingredient list to make sure there wasn't anything synthetic or unnatural in there.  It all checked out, but just be mindful of the scent factor.  It' not totally overwhelming, but I have pretty severe chemical sensitivity, so everything smells strong to me.
(here is the full list of ingredients: soap--glycerin soap, vodka, charcoal powder,black walnut powder, natural fragrance face wash-- distilled water, charcoal, sulfur, tea tree oil, lime oil, vitamin b3, xantham gum )

 Premium Acne Face Wash With 
Charcoal, sulfur And B3, 6oz
I'm a total snob when it comes to facial cleansers.  I mean really, I have very high standards.  It has to be completely all natural, not overly drying, and it must effortlessly remove all my eye make-up without stinging my eyes.  I was happy to find that this charcoal face wash removed all my eye make up and did not sting a bit.  It is a little drying in my skin, but understandable giving this is a acne face wash, but nothing too extreme.  My husband likes this product as well.
