BenGay Review and Giveaway!

I recently had the opportunity to review BENGAY Cold Therapy and BENGAY Pain Relief + Massage. Let me tell you that this review opportunity came at the perfect time.

I started an exercise class at work and after a few workouts my old body is stiff and sore. After the second day, I came home and grabbed up my BenGay products and used them!

The first product I tried was the BenGay Pain Relief + Massage. My back was sore and I needed some relief. I have used BenGay before and know that it will relieve the pain. What I liked about this new product is that it has a massage applicator. So I was able to put it on the sore spot and rub it in. It also allows you to control the amount of BenGay that comes out so it doesn't go all over the place. The massage applicator was great because I was able to rub it into my skin and it relieved the pain. It was easy to apply and it dried up quickly.

I used the BenGay Cold Therapy on my shoulders. The BenGay Cold Therapy is a gel. It is also the only brand that uses the PRO-COOL™ Technology. The formula combines the pain relieving power of menthol, an OTC topical pain relieving ingredient, with the cooling benefits to alleviate the minor aches and pains. It was cool when I applied it. It was easy to apply and left my shoulders feeling good.

Both BenGay products had the BenGay smell but the Pain Relief + Massage
has a vanishing scent that makes it great to use any time. The smell went away rather quickly so I didn't smell like BenGay for hours. The Cold Therapy scent was not as strong. Both did not leave my hands greasy at all. Plus, my soreness was relived!

Like I said, I have always used BenGay for minor aches and pains and these two new products are certainly ones I would purchase in the future. If I continue exercising the way I am, I know I will be needing them for a few months!!

I have 2 prize packs that include one each of the BENGAY Cold Therapy and BENGAY Pain Relief + Massage for two lucky readers!! Just enter on the RaffleCopter widget below.

  64. I'm thinking yard work around the house: in the spring there is gardening, in the fall there is leaf raking, summer there is mowing and trimming of bushes while winter there is snow to deal with.
    Each activity is relatively short but intense, and leaves a different set of muscles sore.
