Pain Relief with Salonpas - Review and Giveaway

I received products for review from Salonpas.  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.
Salonpas, a company I learned of last year, sent me some pain relief products to survey.  Salonpas is a leader in external analgesic products, and I like it as much now as I did a year ago.  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 newest to the line is Salonpas Pain Relieving Patch.  It includes three active ingredients, camphor, menthol, and methyl salicylate, which provides temporary relief of minor aches and pains.  The strength of this patch has more medicine than the Salonpas Original, and the patches are larger.  There are a total of 60 patches per box, and they are easy to apply by peeling and sticking to affected area.  There's a cooling feeling when the patch is worn, and the patch fabric reminds me of what the stretchy part of a bandage feels like.  My mother has been the one to use these patches the most, to help with her chronic back pain.  Jason and I have also used them for shoulder and muscle pain.

The Salonpas Jet Spray is 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.  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.

I have an old work injury in my shoulder, and numerous other aches and pains throughout the day. I have used Salonpas for over 15 years at the recommendation of an employer. I have used them ever since and love them. I also share with family and friends so they know the benefits, as well!

I to have a lot of aches all over BUT the one that hurts the most is my shoulder and mid back. That is 2 places that a patch just will not go, cannot reach. So a spray would really be a big help. I also have times my hands just cramp and ache. I have to give up knitting because of this pain. these products would help me a lot. right now I have had both hips replaced and worry about my knees.

Romeo said...

I have a medical condition, and numerous pains throughout resulting from an accident that wasnt my fault - the at fault driver that backed into me (pedestrian) had no insurance. I have wanted to use Salonpas for years at but cant afford. I also plan to share with family and friends so they know the benefits, too!

Please say prayers as I have an upcoming appointment; I am hoping it will go fast so I can get back and rest the pain!
