Muscle Aches And Pains? You Need Some Deep Relief! #Review #Giveaway

Posted by

I recently attended the fabulous Social Media and Blogging Conference, BlissDom Canada, in Toronto.  While you wouldn’t normally consider a conference a place where you could end up with sore muscles, that’s exactly what happened to me.

When you are middle-aged and you dance for 3 1/2 hours in a row…muscle aches happen!

Here’s how it all went down…


Yes, that was me, dancing all night the last evening of the conference weekend.  It was a pyjama party after all. So…combine the ultimate in comfort-wear (my PJ’s) with the fact that I love to dance, and mix in some great music, and well…let’s just say I paid for it the next day.

That’s where my pain ends though.  Why? Because I had Deep Relief with me!


When I travel, I go prepared.  I bring all the necessities, plus I think about bringing things that I “might” need – like my Deep Relief Ice Cold Spray.

Thank goodness I brought Deep Relief to BlissDom! While my arms (in the photo) look like they were doing all the work, it was my legs that needed the Ice Cold Spray.

As soon as the dance ended that night and I went back to my hotel room, I could feel the aches in my legs coming on.  Never mind the intense burning heat I was feeling. My legs felt like they were on fire.  I could only imagine what they were going to feel like by morning.

As I got ready for bed, I remembered I had brought my Deep Relief Ice Cold Spray with me.  I opened up the aerosol can and quickly sprayed the Ice Cold Spray up and down my legs.  I also sprayed a bit on my shoulders for good measure (they were aching just a bit).


The cooling, soothing relief I received from my Ice Cold Spray, was instant.  This wasn’t because it took away my muscle aches right away (more on that later), but because it immediately soothed the burning heat I was feeling in my legs.  It felt wonderful! I also discovered another benefit of my Deep Relief Ice Cold Spray. Note to self (and to you!): Do NOT get overzealous with the spray and do NOT bend over and take a big sniff of the sprayed body part.  Eager for relief and eager to see what it smelled like, I did both.  Let’s just say I ended up with what felt like very cold, and very cleared out, sinuses for about 1/2 hour after that.  So my advice? A little goes a long way…and don’t take a huge sniff!

I had a fabulous sleep thanks to my Deep Relief Ice Cold Spray (and exhaustion!). Within about 15 minutes of spraying my legs I could really feel the deep down relief penetrating my sore legs.  I used it once more first thing in the morning before taking off on our long road trip home. Deep Relief Ice Cold Spray can be used up to 4 times per day.  For me, spraying twice provided me with all the relief I needed. By the next evening my achy legs were merely a minor nuisance.

Deep Relief’s Ice Cold Spray is the newest product in their line up of sprays and rubs that “reduces inflammation, and provides a penetrating cooling formula that works on contact for targeted pain relief of sore muscles.” I previously reviewed another Deep Relief product on the blog which I loved, so to me it was no surprise that my Ice Cold Spray worked so well.

None of us are immune to injuries or health problems that require the need for some topical pain relief.  That’s why our friends at the Mentholatum Group, makers of Deep Relief products, are coming to the rescue of Canadian Blog House readers!

    I live with foot pain on a daily basis. Some days it very mild that it’s OK. I have Plantar Fasciitis and metatarsalgia ( inflamation of the ball of the foot). I don’t wear ill fitting shoes and I’m not overweight. I have Orthotic. I have what you call faulty foot mechanics and wear and tear. Inflamation causing pressure to my nerve. My toes and calf get tingly. The ball of the foot burns and it feels like a lump or nodule under me feet. It’s so hard to find shoe, new shoes hurt me so much that it is debilitating. My muscle are so thigh. I believe what cause the problem was I did get overweight with my first pregnancy, years of doing aerobic and the way my feet are build. One foot doctor says it my muscle, they other one my nerves. Does it early matter they can’t do nothing for me except orthotics.

    • October 17, 2014


      Good grief Carole! That sounds horrible! I’m so sorry to hear this. That must be so painful. I have family members who have suffered with plantar fasciitis and just that alone seemed so painful for them. I don’t envy you dealing with those problems, Carole 🙁

    When my baby was a month old I fell down the stairs (thank goodness I wasn’t holding her!!) and I landed flat on my back on the 3rd step from the bottom, smacking hard – I suffered from major pain in my muscles for weeks. It was the day I was driving my mother in law to the airport to fly home after she had been such a huge help to us during the first month, and I could barely move for weeks. It was awful. I really could have used some relief!!

    I have just started some exercises classes at our local community center. I started out gentle (or so I thought) with a Pilates class. Did the class on Thursday. And on Friday I was feeling pretty smug with myself that I wasn’t too sore. But wait. On Saturday, I felt muscles that I didn’t know I had. lol. Yup, the teacher later told me, that’s when I would feel it. Would have loved to have some the Deep Relief Ice Cold Spray.
