Amazon shoppers say £2 migraine and headache product is ‘better than tablets’

An Amazon shopper shared details of a £1.60 migraine and headache product, and others were quick to praise its usefulness.

The online retailer is selling Kool ‘n’ Soothe Migraine Cooling Strips in packs of four for £1.57.

The strips are meant to be stuck on your forehead or back of your neck if you start having a migraine or a headache.

According to the product description, the strips — which don’t need to be refrigerated — provide “immediate cooling relief” for up to eight hours.

They are also non-medicated, meaning you can use them in conjunction with more traditional oral medications.

Speaking to the Extreme Couponing and Bargains UK Facebook group to share his thoughts, the Amazon shopper wrote: “My friend just sent me this! What a bargain for these I had to share with you all! We use them all the time when we have temperatures and migraines will definitely stock up!”

It wasn’t long before hundreds of other band members were leaving comments giving their own thoughts on the headache strips, and many had nothing but positive things to say.

One wrote: ‘I have chronic migraines, I’m under a neurologist and I have Botox for them and it’s the best, if not better than meds.

“I love these they help me so much I bought some the other day,” shared a second.

A third revealed: “Yeah great, I’ve been using these for years, I have chronic migraines and use them when I go to bed, mainly they’ve been soothing since I’ve been getting older, my migraines have gotten a lot worse but I must continue.”

Another agreed: “I swear by these – every time I have a migraine I put one on before bed. Awesome.”

“Love these when I have a migraine, they’re amazing,” echoed a fifth.

Another said: “Thanks for sharing, I suffer from migraines and this is great to use before a migraine sets in.”

One Facebook user agreed: “They are awesome! I used them during my pregnancies whenever I had a headache because I didn’t want to take pills, it worked wonders.

Meanwhile, another added: “I always buy these on Amazon, it’s the cheapest I’ve found. We go through a lot as both my husband and I suffer from migraines.”

Other members of the group suggested different retailers where customers could pick up the strips, with one commenting: “These are really good, I use them all the time when I have a headache, I buy them in Poundland.”

A second suggested, “Bargains and home savers sell these pretty cheap! My daughter gets these all the time because of her migraines! Awesome stuff.”

A third revealed in the meantime: ‘They are £1.65 at Sainsbury’s. Brought some in today.’
