Review and giveaway (closed): Stopain Pain Relieving Gel


Congrats to my winner: Lynda Del.
 
Recently, my husband and I have come to a terrible realization- we're not as young as we used to be! And apparently, along with this aging process comes a bunch of random aches and pains. Lately Daniel's been fighting with some chronic joint pain, while I have what I call "training for a 10K while being chubby" aches and pains :)  So I got the opportunity to review a topical pain relief product, both Daniel and I were very excited!  The product that we tested out was one of the products from the Stopain line of topical pain relief products. Here's a bit about Stopain:
Stopain is available in four formulations: Stopain Spray, Stopain Extra Strength Spray, Stopain Extra Strength Roll-On and the new Stopain Gel. The spray and roll-on formulations feature a convenient hands-free application. Stopain Spray, Stopain Extra Strength Spray and Stopain Roll-on are top-sellers in the topical analgesic category. All Stopain products provide fast, temporary relief of minor pains and stiffness of arthritis, muscle aches and back pain…so you can stop pain and get moving again. 

In addition, for every Stopain product sold in 2011, a portion of the proceeds is donated to the Arthritis Foundation  (with a minimum contribution of $25,000).

I realize this is another less-than-glamorous product to review, but honestly, it's another one that I would have a hard time giving up now that I've discovered it! We received the new Stopain Gel to test out, and since the day that it arrived, both Daniel and I have been using it. And we love it! It's easy to rub in to our muscles and joints, doesn't smell too terribly strong (it is 6% menthol, so definitely has a menthol odor, but it's not too bad) and really does help take away the pain.  I've been impressed by how well it helps with my post-run leg aches and pains, and Daniel said that it's significantly lessened his joint pain.  Anything that helps us be less achy is a popular product in our house!

Even though we really like the Stopain Gel, the next time we go to buy Stopain, I'm probably going to pick up the roll-on or spray formulations. Usually there is a bit of gel and odor lingering on my hands after I've applied it, even after I wash my hands well. It's not stopped us from using the gel, but with little ones around, that's not ideal and we'll look for an alternative next time.

If you're dealing with aches and pains from exercise or arthritis or some other cause, I'd really recommend that you try out Stopain. It's helped us out a lot and we're big fans! For more pain-fighting tips, as well as the Stopain "Spring in Your Step giveaway (going on in May). visit www.facebook.com/stopain and www.twitter.com/stopain.

My husband suffers from regular chronic hip pain (as well as a few other painful areas). We've tried a number of products to ease the pain, but so far we haven't found anything that really does the trick. He's hesitant to take any kind of internal medicine, so Stopain Gel might be just the thing he needs!

Thanks for this chance!
