Tesco Ibuprofen Gel
Advantages: Directly targets Pain
I am a very active person, I am always playing sports. I play football for my local village and always come home on a Sunday having pulled a muscle or with a ridiculously painfull back. I get red up of using deep heat and taking tablets! I was recommend this by a mate on the team and he said it works well and eases the pain where you need it. I gave it a try as I trust tesco products, especially there medical ones as they always work well for me.
This will set you back £2 for a 35 gram tube. It's not too cheap, but you are paying for a quality product that works better than the pills. It comes on a tube within a cardboard box. It's an easy squeeze tube that has a screw lid. It'd easy to use and I have no complaints. It fits nicely in my medical box! It's got a high price, but it lasts a long time as you only need a small amount each go. You are told to only use it 1-3 times a day and no more. As it is ibuprofen, you don't want to overdose! I'm sure it would be hard to do so, but follow instructions and do not over use at all.
It's very easy to rub in, the gel is slightly clear and has a clean antibacterial kind of smell to it. You apply a small amount to your finger/hands and then rub it onto the area that hurts untill it's all rubbed in. After a while you will feel the pain start to ease, especially on the back and also tight leg muscles. It will never take the pain away, but it wil go someway to help ease it and make it bearable. It doesn't have a bad smell like deep heat, other people will not know you are wearing it and its subtle.
This has helped me out plenty of times. It justifies it's high price as it works. It's worth getting some of this as it really works and you never know when you may need some. I much prefer using this than taking pain killers for minor muscle pain. What's best is it targets only the area needed and works faster as its direct! This gets a 5 star rating from me, I can't really fault it at all.
Thanks for reading :)
