Previously, I posted a review of the Perlier 8-piece Mini Set, which I received since I am an iFABBO member. When I received an invite to attend the Perlier Press Preview, I was excited! I love attending Press Previews since it’s a good way to learn more about a brand you love, and it allows you to see what the brand has coming up in the future. Perlier, has some great new products in the works for the end of the summer, fall and holiday season.
The Perlier Press Preview took place in the wine room of the Bowery Hotel in New York City. During the preview, we were able to test, and smell the following new items from Perlier:
Italian Sorbet Collection
Volcanic Thermal Spa Line (available October 2013)
Imperial Honey Collection (available in August 2013)
The Perlier Italian Sorbet collection features four summer worthy, fruity scents: Bellini, Coconut, Wild Berries, and Lemon. Each scent of the line has a bath and shower cream with a complementing body cream and hand cream (3-piece set $39.95). The Bellini scent has a ‘Soothing Gel for Legs and Feet’ ($20). The Wild Berries scent has a lip balm ($14.50). The Coconut scent, which is one of my favorites has an ‘Invigorating Body Water’($22.50), while the Lemon scent has a ‘Rereshing Ice Granita’ ($24.50), which is a crackling spray. I received that for free for review consideration through iFABBO. I posted it on my instagram account, MakeupbyKimPorter, check it out.
The Volcanic Thermal Spa Collection smells divine! It will be available around October of this year on HSN. This collection provides a true “Stone and Thermal Therapy” effect in the comfort of your own home. The Volcanic Thermal Spa Collection has an exclusive anti-aging complex that associates the energizing properties of Volcanic Rocks, and the rejuvenating power of Thermal Water from Tuscany.
The Volcanic Thermal Spa Collection contains the following:
Vitalizing Thermal Shower & Bath gel – Stimulates and tones the body
Revitalizing Active Water – Improves skin’s tone and elasticity
Thermo-Regenerating Cream – Firm and smooth skin
Thermal Scrub – Rejuvenates, provides elasticity, tone and radiance.
The Imperial Honey Collection is derived from a rare hone, and Royal Jelly aka the “True youth elixir”, produced by the Black Bee found in the mountains of Sicily. This collection brightens the skin, makes it smooth, and hydrates it. If you’re like me, and love the Honey Miel Collection, you will definitely love Imperial Honey.
The Imperial Honey Collection Includes:
Bath & Shower Cream – This is really hydrating. It also leaves a light honey scent on your skin. I love it!
Nourishing Body Butter
Protecting Hand Cream – This is truly moisturizing. It’s one of my favorite Perlier items.
I love the packaging of this collection the most; it is definitely luxurious, and screams there’s more luxury within the bottle.
For the holiday season, Perlier is releasing gift sets that feature items from your favorite collections, so keep a look out for them in the upcoming months.

I’m here with another Brazilian Wax review from Shobha. Are you sick of hearing me talk about this place? Sorry, I really love them! If you’ve read my other reviews and/or tweets you’d know why. Plus, they’re accommodating. I was pressed for an appointment, and Jessica made it happen.
About a week or so ago, I was finally able to visit Shobha’s newest location in the Financial District of New York City, Shobha FiDi. I’ve been dying to visit this location since it is closer than the Madison Ave location I frequent for my Brazilian wax service. It took me under 30 minutes to get there from my job, and from my home it would be about the same, which is great! It takes an hour or longer depending on how the trains and buses are running for me.
I arrived on-time, and was taken in for my Brazilian wax at least two to three minutes after my arrival, which is impressive. My wax technician was Tahira. Just like all of the other Shobha technician’s she was friendly, held conversation, and made my Brazilian wax service and experience as comfortable as possible. I mean, it’s a wax, there’s but so much comfort you can get.
As with all of the Shobha locations I’ve visited, which would be four in total, Shobha FiDi was no different. It was just as clean, just as inviting. It had nice displays, and was bright, and the layout made it seem roomy.
After my visit, I met up with my husband, and told him I went to Shobha’s newest location to get a Brazilian xax, he stated “Why didn’t you go to visit your homegirl (Karmjeet) at Madison?” I simply stated that Shobha FiDi is closer, and all of the Brazilian wax technician’s are great.
Recently, Shobha increased their service pricing. Instead of paying $57, the Brazilian wax service was $60. I’m not complaining since another place I go to from time-to-time charges upwards of $80.
I’m definitely making Shobha FiDi my new “spot” for my Brazilian wax.
