Soothing my back ache away!
Review of Arnicare Bath and Massage Balm by MsTricia

Advantages: works well at relaxing the body and is widely available
Disadvantages: bit runny and a tad expensive!

For some reason, on and off I can get quite severe lower back pain which really can be bearable, and at some times really affects my day. It is not unbearable, but more of a discomfort especially when sitting at my desk all day which can really be a pain! ... Read review

4head - 4 your head!
Review of Diomed 4Head Headache Treatment by Staceymylove

Advantages: portable, no need for tablets, relaxing
Disadvantages: doesn't work for all headaches

I get quite a few headaches, but I try not to take too many tablets to get rid of them. I spend most of my time at work on a computer and the rest sorting out staff issues so my head can often end up aching by mid-afternoon! I bought some 4head as an alte ... Read review

What a relief
Review of Diomed 4Head Headache Treatment by lucie2511

Advantages: Works quickly, effective, can be used anywhere
Disadvantages: None

Although I don't get half so many headaches as I used to when I was younger I still get them quite regularly which are probably bought on by too much time sitting at a computer screen. I have tried most remedies over the years but had never used anything ... Read review

I used to find this was OK for easing migraine symptoms, but I tended to use it alongside Nurofen; for some reason, the cooling effect used to work for me (even though I needed painkillers for the actual migraine). by KateHurst

Aspirin - the latest garden must-have
Review of Tesco Soluble Aspirin by Listerbelle

Advantages: Multiple uses
Disadvantages: Potentially unwanted and harmful prolonged bleeding times.

Aspirin: the latest garden must have I am sure that the whole adult western world must be aware of the fact that aspirin is a pain reliever, and that at least half of those people might know that it is also used as a blood-thinning agent. However, aspiri ... Read review

Very well reviewed xXx by Deesrev
Listerbell you did an excellent job. My profession is pharmacy and i must say that i didn't find any mistakes while reading this review. I didn't rate it exceptional because i found the whole review a bit stretched. And i know you described the product from Bayer but asprin type medications are found in almost every pharmaceutical company. And they do come in syrups , sprays, pastiles, capsules, and many more. Overall you did a wonderful job explaining it's wide usage. And this review by my view is very legit. good work by Hezerothys

Review of Galpharm Ibuprofen Tablets by ryeb

Advantages: Inexpensive for a branded pain killer, no less effectice for mild/moderate pain despite low price

I bought Galpharm's 200mg Ibuprofen because Superdrug had run out of their basic own label ibuprofen, and it was the next cheapest at 40p for 16. If had gone a few doors up the road I could have actually got the same pack for 25p in Waitrose but I only di ... Read review
