Suave Mango Bliss Event in NYC

by Migdalia Rivera

Recently I was invited to the Suave Mango Bliss Event in NYC; however, due to family obligations I was unable to attend. Thankfully my Latinalicious amiga/ friend, Raquel, was able to go in my stead.

Raquel and I  met over Twitter and became fast friends via a new group I started called Better than Skinny. You may have seen the group’s hashtag #FitnCurvy on Twitter. Our group is filled with dynamic women who are on a journey to become fit, healthy and better than skinny! We’re real women, with curves, of all shapes and sizes, helping one another on our journey.  

Raquel and I bounded even further when we discovered our love of Christ. She’s been a huge inspiration in my life because of her caring spirit and because she is preparing for a marathon! She is definitely one “Latina On a Mission”!  Knowing this, I knew that she would enjoy the Suave Mango Bliss Event. Their products have never failed my body, or wallet, and are comparable to much more expensive brands.  So without further ado,  below is her Latinalicious recap!



The Suave Mango Bliss Event, held at the Mandarin Hotel in New York City, was simply … blissful. It accomplished its goal to bring comfort, relaxation, and bliss.

This event introduced me to a new Suave fragrance, Mango Manderin, and its as sweet as its name. As I walked into the room/bar, the venue for the evening, I was greeted with smiles. I wanted to make myself comfortable and boy did I!  The ambiance in the room was warm and relaxing, with hues of yellow, orange, and brown. The deep and super comfortable suede chairs were a delight.  Later,  I moved around the room, as I sipped my sparkling wine, mingling, laughing, and enjoying the Suave spa experience.


While at the event I met, Divina of The Dancing Hotdogs, Lisa‘s sister, @thisthatbeauty, and Tayelor Kennedy of Absolute Style and Beauty. We enjoyed talking about Suave and its delectable new fragrance and their scrumptious appetizers. We had mushroom mini rolls, lobster with mango salsa, chicken on skewers, mini salmon cakes, and samosas. {I know I have you drooling right now umm hmm.. lol} If you think the appetizers were, well appetizing, imagine the candy bar! Suave’s candy bar at the Mango Bliss Event was full of chocolate covered goodness along with dried mango and sinful jelly and tarty fruit candies.


Before the night ended, I walked over to the back where the hand massages were taking place and was greeted by an awesome hand massager named Angela. Angela asked me if I knew of the Suave Intensive Repair hand lotion. Suave is a brand I use often. I usually purchase the shampoo and conditioner when I can grab them on sale but had never tried the hand lotion. I have really dry skin on my hands and never buy anything other than the other, more expensive lotions. However, tonight I learned that Suave is a high quality product and it satisfies. The body wash was used to wash my hands before the massage and it left my skin smooth and refreshed. Yes, I gave in and I don’t regret it! My hands felt great! They felt as though their thirst was quenched. I left the event a relaxed, softer, sweet scented, and most importantly- a happy camper…

After reading Raquel’s review and seeing her pictures, I’m sure you wish you could have attended. I know I do! Thankfully, Suave has agreed to give 2 Latinalicious readers several bottles via a giveaway. The giveaway will be a part of my blogaversary so stay tuned! Till than, you can find their new Mango Manderin line at most retailers.
