Salonpas giveaway #2…
A few weeks ago, Hisamitsu America, the maker of Salonpas, sent me a HUGE care package in celebration of releasing two new over-the-counter lidocaine-based pain-relieving products.

This package of Salonpas products includes:
- Salonpas Pain Relief Patch (5 ct. box)
- Salonpas Pain Relieving Patch (60 ct. box)
- Salonpas Jet Spray (4 oz. can)
