About them: In the century-and-a-half since our founding, Hisamitsu has pioneered the development of patches and other topical treatments to relieve everyday aches and pains. Our SALONPAS® product line gained early acceptance in Asia and now sells in 50 countries around the world.
I suffer from chronic pain in my neck and back and it is very rare that I can find a product that actually helps alleviate any pain at all. When I had the opportunity to try out the Salonpas product line I was pretty skeptical but excited to give them a try. I ended up with a variety of products and was extremely impressed by the relief they gave me. The first of the products I tried out were the sixty count box of Pain Relieving Patches. They measure 2.83″ by 1.81″. These are great for smaller areas where you want to really target the pain. They were perfect sized patches for my neck and I loved the pain relief I got from using them. The next was a five count box of Pain Relief Patches. These ones were 7cm by 10cm so a bit larger and better for shoulders, back and other larger areas. My personal favorite were the six count box of Pain Relieving Patches. These were Gel Patches Hot and were 10cm by 14cm. These felt absolutely amazing on my lower back. These were great for days when my pain was unbearable. I also received a box of Pain Relief Patches that had twenty patches that measured 7cm by 10cm. Another box came with six patches that had Lidocaine in them. These were Maximum Strength and had a numbing relief and made my muscles feel amazing. These patches all stick really well as long as you make sure your skin is nice and dry before application. I did have a couple that I tried to apply while I was damp from my shower and they wouldn’t stay so being dry is a must for proper application. Another one of my favorite Salonpas products was the 2.75 oz tube of Deep Relieving Gel. You just rub it into the area that hurts and get near instant relief. The last two products I tried were the 4 fl oz and 1 fl oz spray cans of Pain Relieving Jet Spray. These provided nice results for pain relief. They all smell amazing and do their job nicely and I highly recommend them if you suffer from chronic or occasional aches and pains!
