Review of Deep Relief Gel From Boots.com

*Disclosure:  I received a free sample of Deep Relief Gel from Boots.com for review purposes only. However, no other compensation was received and all opinions expressed are my own.*

You might recall me doing a review earlier this year for Boots.com where I reviewed a Deep Heat Heating Patch, a Deep Freeze Cold Patch, and Regenovex Gel. You can check out that review by clicking here where you can find out more about Boots.com and see what I thought about these products. 


I have now been given the opportunity to review Deep Relief gel from Boots.com. Deep Relief is a dual action formula containing both ibuprofen (5%) and levomenthol (3%). The non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug, ibuprofen, provides effective sustained pain relief and reduces both inflammation and swelling while the levomenthol acts as a counter-irritant providing immediate soothing sensation to calm the pain. The result is a combination of immediate pain relief which lasts for hours. Deep Relief gel is effective for the relief of rheumatic pain, muscular aches, strains, sprains, backache, sports injuries, and other pains.

Deep Relief gel is odorless and colorless. It has a medium consistency, not too thick or too thin. A little goes a long way. It goes on smoothly and doesn't leave my hands, neck, or shoulders greasy afterwards. Within about a minute of applying, I feel a slight burn in the area where I applied it and it starts to work. It takes about 2-3 minutes to reach full intensity and then I feel an intense burn for several minutes before it starts to lessen but by no means is it ever uncomfortable. It's actually a soothing feeling. I have very sensitive skin and this did not cause any adverse reaction whatsoever. My favorite time of day to apply Deep Relief is after I have showered and have sit down for the night to relax but I occasionally use it after a long day at work as well as it provides me just enough pain relief and comfort to tackle laundry, dinner, and other household chores. In my case, Deep Relief provides adequate neck and shoulder pain relief for about 2 hours. With my long history of neck and shoulder pain, I welcome relief when I can.

A Peek Inside My Beauty Case


My SOHO Beauty Case is packed full of cosmetics that I've bought, won, and reviewed over the years. Like every other makeup wearer out there, I have my favorites and here they are in no particular order.     


This BB Cream is an all-in-one solution that provides a light, natural coverage and has a nice scent. It contains six skin-perfecting benefits. It hydrates my skin and also protects it against UV damage with SPF 15. 



This water-based, oil-free, talc-free, paraben-free, and fragrance-free foundation provides wonderful coverage that lasts all day. 


This coordinating trio creates the perfect eye look. This "how to" palette is created to highlight, define, and accentuate. The colors go together nicely and go on nicely as well. 

This professional, multi-use Color Play Palette contains 36 powder eye shadows, 12 lip colors, 3 powder blushes, and a bronzer. I can create so many different looks with this one palette. However, I believe that this particular palette is no longer available at Sephora.  



This mascara coats my lashes individually using a hour-glass shaped brush, giving them a bold look with a lot of volume and definition and no clumps.  



This lip tint is a hybrid between a stain, a gloss and a rich balm. It goes on like a gloss, stays on like a stain, and hydrates like a balm. It looks very natural on my lips and doesn't feel clumped up. 



This long lasting super-pigmented lipstick formula contains vitamins C and E. It's created from an Aloe Vera base. This is a very beautiful, natural looking color. It goes on smoothly and is hydrating.  



This is the makeup that I've used the longest. It covers like a liquid but goes on like a powder. It's nonacnegenic and hypoallergenic. It provides a beautiful matte finish. 




This Special Effects Face Powder goes on flawlessly, giving my skin a nice subtle sunlit radiance or a lift-from-within glow if you will. I can swirl all the shades together with the included brush or enhance my skin one shade at a time.  

If we took a peek inside your makeup case, what might we find?
