Pslove:Pain-Relieving Heat Patches for Menstrual Cramps, Backaches, Neck & Shoulder Pains

Hi!

Having neck or back pains? Check your sitting posture pronto. You might be hunching instead of aligning your back to the chair.

Prolong sitting and poor posture may cause our neck and back muscles to strain and overtime, we feel the pain accumulate. If you are an office worker, facing the computer most of the day, 8 hours straight, you are more subjected to get neck and back pain as most office workers have poor posture.

Meanwhile, for the fairer sex, period cramps are evil. I kid you not. My first day is horrible; the day I wish I can just lie down but no, I still need to change or leakage... TMI. But, not all females face this. Some do not experience painful cramps while menstruating. Lucky them..

So, Pslove has generously provided me with three each of their pain-relieving heat patches. Each are specific to either backaches, neck/shoulder pains or menstruation cramps.
The 3 heat patches

"Each product is carefully designed to fit the contours of your body. We've calibrated the heat released to suit the intensity of pain to be relieved, with MenstruHeat being the hottest, followed by BackHeat and NeckHeat." - Pslove

AND I have a PromoCode and a Giveaway at the end of the reviews!



"Our product relies on an exothermic reaction within the pouch to emit heat. When the ingredients (iron powder, carbon and salt) inside the pouch comes into contact with air, a reaction is triggered and heat will be emitted."- Pslove
Package arrived, all products tied neatly together.
Personalization when I received the products. It's nice when people get my name spelt right. :)

Included are also instructions leaflets for each product.

Let me review them with the exception of the MenstruHeat. I'm saving it for my period soon. Cross my fingers that it will bleed come this weekend...

NeckHeat

Pslove has designed NeckHeat to release a slightly lower heat, compared to MenstruHeat, because our skin at the neck and shoulder tend to be more sensitive. If you press hard on those areas, it will become reddish. 

Informative packaging on the front and back, even showing the Expiry Date.
To get another opinion, I used it on my bf. Lol.

He's been having neck pains and using heat patches and ointments to soothe it. So, I asked if he would like to try NeckHeat.

"Ah, why not?" Lol. Tore the top of the packaging and the product heated up after about 7 minutes.
The NeckHeat's shape reminded me of a boomerang. Lol.
I decided to split the NeckHeat for a more flexible use and because his shoulders are broad. The medical-grade adhesives are only on two points, at the corners, instead of spread out on the whole length. After 4 hours, I checked on him about it.

"Feels okay, heat just nice. Not too hot. Plus no smell."

Man and their few words.. At least, he did gave a good remark.  He took it off afterwards and decided to leave it overnight in an air-conditioned room. Next morning, there was still heat from the patch. I guess this means that it can really last up to 12 hours plus, as claimed. And, yes, this NeckHeat is odourless. No worries if you're worried about smell.

The only problem is since it's medical-grade adhesive, it doesn't have strong attachment to the skin. Maybe should add the surface area of the adhesive to stick better.

Rating: 4 stars

Price: NeckHeat RM 7.64

BackHeat
Pslove has also designed BackHeat to bend to fit the contours of your back with extended heat distribution across it's wings so that you get maximum comfort and relief.

Informative packaging on the front and back, even showing the Expiry Date.

I chosed to try this BackHeat as I've been having backache.

The adhesives are on the wings.

It fitted my back's contour nicely. As it heated up, I felt soothe and totally forgotten about the backaches I had. I took it off before sleep as when I leaned back, the heat directly touched my skin, which got a bit uncomfortable. Like the NeckHeat, this was also still warm the next morning.

Same problem with the NeckHeat, I hope Pslove could increase the adhesive's surface area as this moved around a bit when I stretched my back.

Rating: 4 stars

Price: BackHeat RM 7.64

MenstruHeat
Heat therapy is clinically-proven to relieve menstrual cramps. MenstruHeat is designed to fit ergonomically and quickly emit an optimum level of heat to relax the cramping uterine muscles.

Informative packaging on the front and back, even showing the Expiry Date.

For MenstruHeat's review, I will update when I have the chance to use it.
