Every now and then I get a little ache or pain and reach for a tried and true pain relief cream. Granted the product provides the temporary relief I'm looking for, the only problem is the odor. YUK! The price we pay to find relief. There are a few other pain relief creams on the market claiming to be odorless but they never seem to provide the relief I need. I was offered the opportunity to sample Noxicare Natural Pain Relief.
Noxicare is "a breakthrough natural, patented pain relief formula that is a proprietary combination of 7 of the world's most potent natural pain relievers that quickly and effectively alleviate inflammation, muscle aches and nerve pain - with NO known side effects and without a prescription."
My Thoughts: I received a full size 3.5 fl. oz. tube of Noxicare Pain Relief Cream. After a long walk with the family, I was a little achy so I decided to try Noxicare. The scent was pleasant and the texture was nice and creamy. Not as thick and oily as some other pain relief creams I've used, which I actually loved. It was easy to apply and massage onto my tired legs. Oh, I should probably share that I had hiked, nearly 3 miles, uphill, with the youngest of Los Tres Amigos and his best friend and my calf muscles were really sore after our afternoon excursion so I was glad to have Noxicare on hand.
As far as the pain relief was concerned I didn't notice much "relief". *sigh* Perhaps I expected immediate relief or have grown too accustomed to a heating or cooling sensation with the pain relief creams I've used before. Or perhaps, the Noxicare needed a bit more time to alleviate my discomfort. After a little massaging of my calf muscle, the discomfort was gone. I won't say the relief came solely from Noxicare, but I will say the massaging action of rubbing in the Noxicare Pain Relief Cream may have provided relief.
Hubby, on the other hand, loves the stuff. He walks 4-6 miles daily and plays a couple games of basketball each afternoon after work. Occasionally, he experiences a little discomfort and was glad we had the Noxicare on hand. No mess. No medicine odor. Not greasy. He liked it.
Overall, a mixed review. I loved the scent and the lotion-y texture and concur Noxicare Pain Relief Cream is perfect for massaging tired, achy muscles.
I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
