The Boomerluxe Mini Box came with a product card listing included items and prices, along with denoting which product is part of their Women Supporting Women program.
Jeanne Lottie Magnifying “Readers” Pendant– Value $11.42 USD
This particular design was not on their website, but there were three other designs to choose from. I am going to keep this compact magnifying pendant in my purse for back-up on those days I forget my reading glasses. I still can’t believe I need reading glasses even at 49, yikes! It would have been perfect to receive a case to keep the glasses clean in my purse. This product is a featured entrepreneur from their Women Supporting Women program.
Revlon Age Defying Wrinkle Remedy Line Filler– Listed Value $12.99
This promises to smooth and fill deep lines and wrinkles. I’m not at the point where I have wrinkles or deep smile lines so, I may swap or pass onto a friend.
Arnicare Gel + Bonus Travel Size – Listed Value $12.50
This product relieves muscle pain and stiffness, and it totally helped ease the stiffness in my neck. How appropriate that it came in this box because I needed it right away! It’s unscented, paraben free, and non-greasy. I love how it absorbed well into my skin.
I also received a $3 off for Arnicare Gel.
Divine Skin Hydrator (1 oz) – Value $1.55
This product is also a part of Boomerluxe’s Women Supporting Women program. I have tried other in-shower moisturizers before and they were too oily and didn’t leave my skin moisturized. However, I was pleased with the results of this product. My skin was smooth and hydrated!
Revlon Bold Lacquer Mascara – Listed Value $7.00
I have received this mascara in other boxes before and it works! It gave my lashes volume and length.
Costume Ring – Bonus Gift
This large blue stone costume ring is an inaugural gift. It fit well on my finger and will be a fun addition to my existing accessories.
Lastly, I received a second coupon, good for $3 off Calendula Cream.
Verdict: The Boomerluxe Mini has a retail value of $45.46, which is more than double the cost of the box! Since 2012 with the introduction of PopSugar Must Have Box, lifestyle boxes have been popping up in different categories, and some have been hits while others are misses. Either way, there is a market and certain demographics will be a target such as singles, or 50+, etc.
I am not quite a baby boomer, but I found some of the products very useful, like the Arnicare Gel for my stiff neck. However I’m not ready for the Revlon Age Defying Wrinkle Remedy Line Filler. At 49 I’m sure wrinkles are just around the corner, so It certainly doesn’t hurt to have some remedies on hand! I would have liked to see higher quality items in this box instead of drugstore brands, but overall I’m pleased.
What do you think of Boomerluxe Mini‘s inaugural box?
