  • Though I wouldn't mind some serious prescription pain relievers from time to time when it's particularly bad, I don't like the idea of being dependant on pills to make it through a day
  • Specifically used on sore muscles and to treat arhtritis and back pain, I figured this was exactly what I needed when I couldn't get my favorite products, and the price was definitely right

      I have to admit to having a slight strange addiction to pain relieving patches and creams. There’s nothing better than coming home from a long day at work and slapping on a patch and feeling that fantastic hot and cold sensation work over some very over-worked muscles. I work in the retail industry and, though sometimes it’s not quite as taxing as others, when it IS taxing, I really end up hurting myself by overextending muscles that shouldn’t be over-extended. One of my biggest problems is that I’m short, and we’re required to reach items that are sometimes way higher than I’m able to reach, even when I’m on the top rung of our ladders. I have to stand on my tip toes and just barely grab what I’m aiming for with my finger tips, and it’s quite

      the precarious balancing act, and on a number of occassions I’ve actually felt something in my shoulder pop. I’ve been to the doctor, and short of steroid shots and physical therapy (now that i’ve been with my job over a year and it’s already really done a number on me) there’s very little that can be done to treat the pain that accompanies it other than taking over-the-counter pain relievers. Though I wouldn’t mind some serious prescription pain relievers from time to time when it’s particularly bad, I don’t like the idea of being dependant on pills to make it through a day.

      One of my favorite products to use for muscular pain relief is anything with a menthol base. The smell is atrocious and will pretty much clear any room and I’m in and, as a result, I can’t very well use it at work and chase away all the customers, but when I’m at home, I truly prefer to use these kinds of products because they work quickly and effeciently to offer me the relief I need when I’m feeling very sore. One such product I ran across, purely by accident because I happened to be looking for my usual Icy Hot patch, was the Mentholatum Deep Heating pain relieving rub. I typically prefer the patches because they are less messy, but I couldn’t pass up trying this rub out because it was very inexpensive at about $3 for the tube and had my favorite word in the name of the product… “menthol”. Specifically used on sore muscles and to treat arhtritis and back pain, I figured this was exactly what I needed when ...

      I couldn’t get my favorite products, and the price was definitely right.

      The one thing I noticed is that it takes a bit longer to start working than the basic Icy Hot or Bengay product. Whereas, when you rub those products on, you can feel the heat within a minute or two, this product actually takes up to ten minutes before you are feeling the full effect of the heat. But it’s a nice gradual warm-up for those who don’t like the immediate hot/cold effect of some of the other products available. And the smell isn’t as medicinal as I thought it would be. It almost smells like a wintergreen gum, but when that tingling sensation sets in, you definitely know it’s working, even if you’re used to an accompanying strong smell to let you know it. This

      is like the benefits of Icy Hot but without the TOTALLY obnoxious smell (though it’s still too strong for me to wear it while I’m at work, though some of my coworkers said it isn’t as offensive as I might think it is, and they are all trying to convince me it’s okay to use and customers wont be offended by it). I like the product and will continue to use it when my patches aren’t available, and maybe I’ll get brave enough to use it at work and chance annoying some customers in the process. Maybe I’ll get lucky and people will tell me it smells wonderfully refreshing! If you get the chance and happen to find this product in a store near you (i think you can only order it online now and days), then I’d definitely suggest trying it out.
