Salonpas Review

Salonpas recently sent me some pain relief patches to try out.  I normally hate patches like these and can't wait to take them off, but after badly hurting my IT band this summer and facing flare ups from time to time I'm willing to try anything to make running easier. 

The patch does have menthol.  However, the odor is not over powering as it usually is in patches like this.  The patch was large enough to cover the area I wanted it to, but not too big.  It was easy to put on with one set of hands as well.

The patch easily stayed on for eight hours.  At that time I took it off easily and there was no goop left behind. 

I know what you're asking....does it work?  It does.  I felt relief after a day of speed work in the cold, a hot shower after and rushing out the door without stretching....
The patch won't compensate for taking care of yourself but on those days when you are a little stiff and can use a little help, the Salonpas patch is a great option.  Its thin enough that you don't notice it under clothing...I even had tight fitting pants on and it wasn't a problem.

They offer all sorts of patches-some for arthritis, some in large sizes, some with gel etc.  No matter what you are looking for, Salonpas has something for you.

However, what I like even better than the patches is the Jet Spray.  The spray is like a pain relieving mist that goes on and doesn't drip.  It feels amazing and takes away pain longer than any other spray I've used.  And the smell is much nicer.

The Salonpas massage foam is a little treat your can give yourself after your workout.  Its a foam that you spray on and massage in.  The cool pain relieving effects happen right away.  I love to put this on and foam roll and its like a mini post workout spa visit.  The best part is that Salonpas patches and sprays are inexpensive, so can use them without worry!

You can get Salonpas patches at all sorts of places including, and CVS.
