I just turned sixty-four on July 2nd and I have always been a woman who has pushed back against stereotypes in general, so being "pro-age" is natural for me. I almost always think outside the box of what is "appropriate" behavior for women in general. I jumped out of airplanes and rafted rivers in my twenties; drove all over the USA on a road trip in my thirties, sleeping at truck stops (and sometimes in my car), and making friends everywhere; I bought a motorhome in my forties (and a few Harley Davidsons) and took another cross-country trip for 5 weeks visiting all of the national parks. I started a not-for-profit with a friend in my late forties which was geared toward taking women and girls out into nature and on wilderness backpacking trips. I also co-facilitated a wilderness program for teen girls called "The Goddess Program for Amazing Young Women in the Wilderness". I've had two husbands significantly younger than myself. Most recently, in my fifties and up until May of this year, a big part of my job was to facilitate high ropes challenge courses where I would spend hours up "at height", take people hiking, snowshoeing, and camping. At sixty-four I am now venturing out on my own to create a counseling and hypnotherapy private practice that will afford me more personal and professional autonomy. And a few weeks ago I went back to that river that I rafted in my twenties and rafted it again!
What I love about BOOM products: First, I love that the company was created by beautiful Cindy Joseph. She just radiated natural beauty and I admire her for creating something, not just cosmetics, but something more meaningful for women to relate to and be validated by. As for the products...LOVE THEM!! Simple and clean, BOOM products are created and made with integrity....no animal testing (very important to me), no chemical ingredients, organic and natural ingredients sustainably sourced. BOOM is a "conscious company" and it feels good to me to support that, especially during these challenging and uncertain times. You have to look for the good in the world, then help to expand it. Plus, I truly love the products! The skincare line makes my face glow and feel completely nurtured. And the Trio, well, I use it every day; it takes mere minutes to get ready and walk out the door. And I love the mascara as well; goes on easy, comes off just as easy. Never smudges, never any "raccoon eyes" at the end of the day. BOOM....all great products for a company with integrity. I'd say it's a perfect match!
