    I have had problems with my skin and acne for over 10 years and I've tried all sorts of crazy products even proactive and other such similar products. I recently started using Diva Stuff and my skin has never been clearer! She has the most amazing products and fantastic people skills! I know for a fact that I will never ever buy any other skin care products other than the amazing and natural wonders that are from http://www.divastuff.com. You'll be hooked for life once you give her a try!

    The first diva stuff product I tried was the blemish bomb and I was hooked from there. I had tried many other products for my adult acne but none worked as well or as quickly or left my skin feeling as good as the diva stuff anti acne line. All of her products are amazing. I love the secrets of Egypt microdermabrasion scrub it is elegance in a jar, it leaves your skin baby smooth. The cantaloupe face cream is luxury in a bottle, leaves your skin silky smooth. All of the face scrubbies are genius. I can't say enough good things about diva stuff. If you truly want to pamper your skin visit divastuff.com

    I am so thankful to have found Diva Stuff a few months ago! I have been on a quest for great skincare products for decades, and I finally found the best! The challenge is that often the products that smell great really make you feel like you are being pampered do not yield significant results, and those that give results are harsh, full of chemicals, and no fun to use – with Diva Stuff you don't have to choose. These natural products have helped with so many issues, from cystic acne to cellulite. And they are such a delight to use…. with yummy, beneficial ingredients like chocolate, peanut butter, bananas, and many more it is a totally decadent experience. The Diva Stuff line has totally changed my skincare regime into a pleasure rather than a chore, My skin is glowing and looking better than it has in ages!

    @ Sven. Your comment is extremely offensive due to the fact that you're leaving USELESS comments when in fact you have not tried any Diva Stuff products. Granted, if you tried some products and didn't like it, it is what it is. However, your comment is tainting and could possibly influence a potential customer's decision to try these products in a negative manner. It would be wise to just ask Diva Stuff fans/users about the products. You definitely WOULDN'T receive a GENERIC answer. This is coming from a Diva Stuff customer of 1 year who wouldn't use anything else.

    I am so thankful to have found Diva Stuff a few months ago, and I encourage anyone who wants healthy beauty to try them! I have been on a quest for great skincare products for decades, and I finally found the best!

These natural products have helped with so many issues…. from cystic acne (love the Honeysuckle & Vodka Spot treatment), to stretch marks (the Peanut Butter and Honey Cream is heavenly), to cellulite (Peppermint Mocha Scrub rocks!) just to name a few. And they are such a delight to use – these yummy ingredients smell so good and make for a totally decadent experience! The Diva Stuff line has totally changed my skincare regime into a pleasure rather than a chore. My skin is glowing and looking healthier than it has in ages!

    Love love love Diva Stuff. There isn't anything you can't find for a very reasonable price and if they don't have something, they'll make it! The product line is ever expanding so it's like a new adventure all the time. I have three full drawers of products that range in cost from beauty suppliers and big name department stores from all over the world. They are slowly being replaced by the sensible and sensational product lines from Diva Stuff. Can't thank them enough for freeing me from chasing the next new product to establishing myself with great products from one source that are like none other I have tried. You can just feel the love. Thank you Diva Stuff!

    My daughter and I love Diva Stuff products. I don't know how Kym keeps coming up with so many new product ideas. Every time I check the site there is some new product I want to try out. The customer service is wonderful and they mail out the order very quickly. I always find an extra surprise goody in my package when it arrives :) If you check out the Diva Stuff Facebook page, there is always a fun contest to enter.
