Boomerang gel padd
Written By: Mary B, Florids 10/4/2016
My doctor recommended these because if the mark I had on my nose every morning. They were a complete flop as I couldn't keep them on. I would wake up in the morning with them on the sheets.
Good idea..... But

Just not worth the money as they don't stay in place if the wearer is an active sleeper.

Works very well.

My mask would not seal with the boomerang
There is one better

The design of this cushion just does not work. From it not wanting to stay on to still having leaks in my eyes. I tried another one on this site, Nasal Soft Cpap Cushion, the blue one, and it worked great. You still have to work with it to get it to stay on your nose until you get your mask on but it is well worth the trouble. No more leak and no more sore nose with that one.
Does the trick!

This gel pad is exactly what my husband needed. It allows the mask to sit on his nose without irritation. He loves it!

although the gel pad does a good job protecting the bridge of the nose it destroys the silicon seal around the cpac mask which rest on the pad.
Good, but pricey!

I have had major trouble with my mask that would cause my nose bridge bleed, to the point that I have a scar (both skin and bone). No, I was not wearing my mask too tight. The mask I use has a very sharp part inside where it sits on the nose bridge, thus, causing the issue. Otherwise, I love my mask since it is the best one among many I tried in 5 yrs of C-pap therapy. So, I have tried all sorts of remedies to ease the injury from the mask... Nothing helped as much or I had to spend time sticking layers of soft bandage to my nose bridge every single night.... just awful! Then... I purchased the Boomerang gel pad... WOW! It works for the Easy Life mask very well as it does not interact with the nasal cushions (I pace the gel pad inside the cushion) over the sharp portion. Works well. There is still some redness in the morning, however, significantly less than without and no injury to my nose bridge. Reason I gave 4 stars, the pad is overpriced for a puny thing. They do wear out and become hard and useless.
Like wearing nothing

This noseguard is rough and made the bridge of my nose as red as if i had worn nothing. Worst of all is how expensive it is and cannot be returned of course. Waste of $$$$

These gel pads provide excellent protection for the bridge of my nose. Prior to using them my mask was causing pain and major issues with the bridge of my nose. The gel pads have stopped those problems.
Not much I like about this Gel Pad
Written By: Todd, Pennsylvania 6/9/2014
When I received the Gel CPAP Pad I was looking forward to trying it but after one night I knew it was a waste of money. I have a nasal mask and the description of this product claims that it helps secure your CPAP mask and prevent leaks. It's actually the opposite. I couldn't use it because my mask would leak so badly. The instructions also said that you should replace the pad every month which I found ridiculous.
Nice gel pad for the nose

This pad works but its difficult to position it without it falling off. I wish it would stick to my nose when I place it on which would make the whole process easier. That said, it does the job--cushions my nose and prevents (for the most part) leaking air.

The bridge of my nose is very sensitive and sore due to the CPAP mask. This is the second mask pad I have tried and my nose is STILL sore. My wife has cotton pads that she uses to take off her make up and I have folded one in half and used it under my base, to my great relief.
Great Product For CPAP Users

The Boomerang gel pad has done a great job in protecting my nose from pressure sores. I recommend it to any CPAP user who is bothered by that problem.
Pad Makes a Big Difference
Written By: Terry, SF Bay Area 10/28/2013
I have had this pad for a year and a half and only use it when traveling or when I know I need to minimize my mask face marks when going out in public early in the morning. Other days, I wipe my face with no-alcohol witch hazel to ease the marks, and I'm good to go in an hour or so. Because I've used it only occasionally, after a year and a half this pad still works very well. I know I've used it more than 30 nights (maybe 60 nights?) so it certainly lasts longer than advertised, in my experience. Thanks for an excellent accessory --- with a few adjustments, no leakage and it's comfortable!
no more red mark in the morning
Written By: halhouleh, 8/1/2013
I liked using the gel mask pad. It's comfortable and there is no red mark on my nose's bridge when I get up in the morning. I've had to readjust the straps on my mask to accommodate the thickness of the pad.
These pads work very well
Written By: CW, North Florida 7/24/2013
I started using Gel Pads several years ago when my mask was sometimes making a red mark on the bridge of my nose, sometimes painfully. These pads prevent that. They last perhaps a month or so before they need replacement (a bit longer than a mask), just wash every morning with gentle soap, and put it back in the provided case.

I found that it slipped out of place, alot. Not satisfied.
Not what I needed
Written By: dee, Batesville, MS 6/13/2013
It let too much air escape and my nose was still red the next morning. Only tried it a few nights. In the drawer with other not working items...
works as advertised
Written By: Michael, Vermont 4/20/2013
Simple, easy, and effective. It's nice not having the deep red mark across the bridge of my nose every morning.
Very helpful item!

After struggling with a nasty sore on the bridge of my nose and now what appears to be a permanent bump in that area, I have discovered this item and it seems to do the trick. Several masks I had tried left the nose bridge area sore and red and after trying bandaids, gauze, etc (none of which worked) I found this in an ad. It covers the area needed and most importantly, it does not cause the mask to leak. Very happy with it. Just a shame they say it only lasts 30 days as replacing these every 30 days can get very expensive. Would hope in the future they can extend the life expectency or lower the price.

it did not help. Really hard to keep in place
Written By: pammyd, Arkansas 1/28/2013
THANKS SO MUCH FOR THIS PRODUCT. I WAS UNABLE TO WEAR A BRAND NEW MASK, BECAUSE THE BRIDGE OF MY NOSE WOULD BREAK OUT. THIS PRODUCT PROTECTS MY NOSE SO I HAVE NO ISSUES WITH THE MASK ANYMORE. THANKS AGAIN
nose now happy

My CPAP had been hurting my nose for about a year. After the first night with the Boomerang Gel CPAP Mask Pad my nose knew something had changed. Now, I look forward to going to bed and not feeling the pinched nose syndrome in the AM.
Boomerang Gel CPAP Mask Pad
Written By: Dr. Gene, Long Island, NY 8/10/2012
Works well and avoids the mask from actually opening wounds on my nose, but the pressure of the mask on the Boomerang itself cause my nose to turn red from the pressure.
