Salonpas Gel {Giveaway}–CLOSED

Disclosure: This could be a sponsored post or contain affiliate links (which means I earn a percentage of the sale), but all opinions are strictly my own.

I’m currently training for my first ever half-marathon, and let me tell you, it’s hard work! The long runs are LONG (I have to run 11 miles this Saturday!) and the sprinting and hill workouts are grueling. I feel like I have been constantly sore for the last 10 weeks, and sadly, it’s not going to get better until the race is over on November 9th. Thank goodness I was sent a tube of Salonpas DEEP Relieving Gel or I might have given up a few hundred miles ago!

I first heard of Salonpas when I was in high school. I was a server and a dancer, and therefore frequently sore from one thing or another. My mom brought home some of their pain relief patches from the store one day and I thought I was in Heaven! I loved the pain relief I got from their patches because it lasted so long and really worked, as opposed to some pain relieving creams I’d tried in the past. However, it was hard to always pinpoint the exact starting place of the pain and so sometimes I’d have to use two or three patches to get the relief I needed. Thus, the brilliance in their DEEP Relieving Gel! I can use as much gel as I need to find the painful spot and rub it in until it feels better.

Salonpas DEEP Relieving Gel is a great pain reliever! Since it is a gel, it is thinner than other pain relief creams and slides out quickly, so be careful when squeezing some out of the tube or you could end up with more than you really need. It is slick and applies easily. It rubs in quickly and begins to work right away. Within seconds of applying the gel I can feel it warming up my muscles, sending pain relief deep down where I need it most.  A few minutes after application it really heats up and I can feel my muscles relaxing even further. I think this is an essential product for every medicine cabinet!

The three active ingredients are Camphor, Menthol and Menthyl Salicylate, so it has that familiar, minty-old person smell. The smell lasts for a few hours, but so does the relief, so you kind of have to take the good with the bad 🙂 Salonpas also makes Pain Relief Patches, Arthritis Pain Relief Patches, and even a Jet Spray! If you’re not sure which product is best for you, you can use their Product Comparison guide. All Salonpas products, including the DEEP Relieving Gel, can be purchased at most drugstores nationwide and at select online retailers, like CVS.com, Drugstore.com and RiteAidOnlineStore.com.

My hair used to be thick and shiny without any help at all.  I could use any sort of shampoo, conditioner, styling aid, any or all of the above, and it always had lots of volume and was healthy.

Until I had my boys.

And, I tell you, it’s been an uphill battle for the past four years.  Four months after I had my first son, I had clumps of hair falling out, about an inch all around the edges of my hairline.  Putting it into a ponytail looked horrible because it looked like someone had shaved all around the outside edges.  I thought it would be better after getting pregnant again (and it did), but then it all fell out again.  At least it was more evenly distributed this time…

I was happy to receive these Hydrating products from Reflections Hair Care to review, especially now that it’s winter time and my brittle hair was breaking off and causing lots of flyaways.

I liked the feel of the shampoo and especially loved the smell that made me feel like I was in a spa or salon to get pampered.  I’m a wash-my-hair-every-couple-of-days-thanks-to-dry-shampoo kind of girl, so my shampoo has quite a job to do.  The conditioner wasn’t as creamy as I was used to, and I didn’t notice an incredibly soft feel to it after rinsing it off in the shower.  I did notice, however, that the hair seemed to have more strength to it after towel-drying and that it didn’t have as much frizziness.

I loved the Volume Gel (and so does my husband!), and the Thermal Protecting Spray is a must for me since I use my incredibly hot Chi flat iron daily and my blow dryer 3-4 times a week.

Reflections Hair Care also offers a Tea Tree line

and an Awapuhi line, both comparable to top of the line salon products at affordable prices.

 Reflections Hair Care is giving away one value pack (winner’s choice of line) to a Dandy Reader!
