Salonpas - Pain Relief Products Review and Giveaway

I received products for review.  The opinions within this post are of my own and I was not influenced in any way.  Please do your own research before purchasing products or using services.  Your opinions and results may differ.
As much as I hate to admit it, I'm not getting any younger.  And with the rise in age comes the rise in aches and pains.  I don't have any chronic health problems but do suffer from joint and muscle pain from time to time.  And if that wasn't enough, my mother (who lives with me) has a whole host of problems.  Even more, my husband is on his feet all day and works hard as an auto technician.  I'm not saying we're a bunch of living fossils but we have our fair share of hurts between us.
 
A company I'd never heard of before, Salonpas, sent me some pain relief products to survey.  Upon further research, I learned that Salonpas is a leader in external analgesic products.  The company name Salonpas comes from its active ingredient, Methyl Salicylate.  Methyl Salicylate passes through the skin and goes directly to the site of your pain, right where it hurts.  Their products are intended to provide symptomatic relief of conditions where pain is present.
The Salonpas Pain Relief Patch was my husband's favorite of the product line.  It's a topical pain patch intended to relieve mild to moderate pain.  There are five patches to a box and each is to be used once.  It's as easy as peel-and-stick.  They contain menthol which gives off a cooling feeling when the patch is worn.  Jason applies a patch onto each shoulder at night, then wears it to bed.  The patch fabric reminds me of what the stretchy part of a bandage feels like. 
The Salonpas Jet Spray is also a favorite for Jason.  He mostly uses it on his feet for temporary relief.  It's applied by pointing towards the affected area and spraying.  It contains menthol which provides a cooling sensation.  It dries fairly quickly, and my son also uses it because he likes how it feels on his joints after a long run.
 
The Salonpas DEEP Relieving Gel has been mostly used by my mother.  It's a non-greasy gel that's to be applied to affected area.  Its active ingredients are menthol, methyl salicylate, and camphor.  Because my mother has several places on her body that ache, she can apply the gel to most of those places to receive quick relief.
 
The Salonpas Gel Patch Hot provides both a cooling sensation and a warming sensation.  There are six gel patches to a box and each can only be used once.  I'm the one who's used this the most often because I like the feeling of first cold, then warm.  It has rounded corners which makes application to elbows and knees easier.
As with any other pain relief products, there's precautions to follow.  It's important to read and follow directions for each product.  Salonpas does not take the place of the importance of seeing a doctor but their products can and do provide temporary relief for aches and pains.  Now that I'm aware of and have used Salonpas, I'm very receptive to using them in the future.  I, along with others in my household, have benefitted and felt the relief.
Win It!

One person will win a selection of Salonpas pain relief products (ARV $100).

I suffer from a torn muscle in my shoulder as well as degenerative disc disease, herniated/bulging discs, and sciatica pain. I've used salanospas before, and even though it doesn't eliminate the pain, it definitely takes the edge off.
