I have another fantastic product to share with you which is from one of my favourite brands SBC. If you haven’t heard of them before they are primarily a beauty trade brand but have been selling their products on QVC for the last 20 years. The make the most fantastic problem solving products (Click here to see my review of the amazing Propolis gel) and being gels are extremely easy to use. This one is Camphor & Menthol and I am so impressed I wish I had purchased it before.
As you may know, I suffer with chronic back pain due to damaged joints in my spine so I have to take a lot of pain medication and bizarrely this causes me a lot of headaches. I also have tendonitis in my hip which plays up occasionally (I’m falling apart!) and it has been playing up with a vengeance over the past 2 days making sleeping very difficult, I used some last night and it really helped take the edge off the pain and made me feel more comfortable (which at 2am and you are desperate for some sleep is extremely welcome!).
It is quite a stimulating feeling but very fresh and tingly, strangely I find this very relaxing so I slathered it on my temples, neck and shoulders before I went to bed last night. I went to sleep and then when I woke up because of my hip pain, I popped some on my hip as well and I found the pain eased enough for me to actually get off for some much needed kip. It obviously does wear off, so you do have to reapply, but there are no limits on how much you can use unlike deep heat style products or steroid creams.
The gel is water based with Camphor and Menthol and Evening Primrose oil, it isn’t sticky or drying and sinks in quickly into your skin. I am so impressed with this, I have become rather addicted to using it in the very short time that I have had it!
It won’t get rid of my pain as unfortunately that is permanent, having said that I have found it an excellent supplement with my usual medication. To be honest, I would recommend it just for stress headaches alone as it is so refreshing and clearing. Another product from SBC that I have loved and I am absolutely thrilled with it. Camphor & Menthol comes in a 250ml pump bottle and a little goes a very long way. It is available at QVCUK at £16.00.
If you haven’t checked out SBC before, look them up they are a fabulous brand.
Till next time,
