The endurance gods smiled on me recently, sending me pain relief when I was suffering. Can’t recall how it happened, but I somehow tweaked my back, right along the line between upper and lower. The pain was pretty excruciating, even for one as macho as me. In a cosmic coincidence, I was offered the opportunity to try out some BENGAY Pain Relief Products – hallelujah!
BENGAY® Pain Relief + Massage Gel
Made of the active ingredient Menthol 2.5%, along with inactive ingredients camphor, carbomer, DMDM hydantoin, isoceteth-20, isopropyl alcohol, PEG-40 hydrogenated castor oil, sodium hydroxide, water, this is a product that goes on COLD, but then feels like it’s working right away. Massaging nubs uniquely designed to massage in the powerful relief of the BENGAY® gel are paired with the no mess applicator which controls the product flow. The scent starts disappearing in minutes.
BENGAY® cold therapy
cold therapy is a menthol pain relieving gel with PRO-COOL™ technology. Used for pain relief, it has a vanishing scent and provides a fast-acting blast of cold. Deep penetrating and long-lasting, this gel is ideal for muscle and joint strains or sprains.
Both of these products were used concurrently, though not together, over a week’s time or so, and definitely provided pain relief. The initial feeling of the cold was a shock (and ticklish), but made it feel effective. These products work! By the end of the week, I felt pretty much back to normal, with only the typical middle-aged complaints.
More information can be found on the BENGAY website.
