Pain Cakes are compact, gel-filled ice packs that are meant to stick to nearly any area of the body and have been created with the aim of relieving pain associated with physical injuries. In each standard set of these ice packs, you'll receive two large round ones, two mini-sized round ones, and one wrap. You'll also have the option of upgrading to a deluxe version of the set, which will give you two extra wraps and mini-packs, along with three additional large packs.
The cost of Pain Cakes is $24.99 plus $4.99 shipping, for a total price of $29.98.
To use one of your Pain Cakes, you'll need to first put it in your freezer and chill it until it's frozen. This may take up to several hours. Keep in mind that you can chill all of these ice packs at once and just take one out of the freezer at a time when you need to use it. The Pain Cake you choose will depend on exactly where on your body you're experiencing pain.
Once you've removed a cake of an appropriate size and shape from your freezer, stick it to the area of your body you want to treat, with the logo facing upward. If you're wearing clothes, be sure to stick the cake directly against your skin instead of on top of your clothes—you'll be able to add clothing on top afterward, if necessary.
While wearing one of your Pain Cakes, you'll be able to move about freely, doing virtually anything you'd normally do, without being concerned about the icy device falling off. You'll even be able to play sports, work out at the gym or perform most physical jobs while wearing one of these cakes.
When you feel like you've gotten enough pain relief, or your cake no longer feels frozen, simply peel it off your skin (which shouldn't be difficult or painful) and put it back in the freezer.
Each Pain Cake has a three-dimensional flex-tech design, which will enable it to conform to the shape of the injured or achy body part you've added it to. After it has molded itself into a suitable shape against your skin, the Hyper Stick gel it contains will hold it securely in place, so you won't have to hang onto it with your hands. You also won't need to tape it or tie it to your body with any sort of additional material. As it rests against your skin, it'll deliver icy waves to the area in which you're experiencing discomfort, with the aim of soothing, minimizing or even completely eliminating that discomfort.
You'll be able to attach one of these cakes to nearly any area of your body, including your back, your stomach, a knee, a shoulder, an elbow or your neck. The wrap or the larger round cakes will likely work best on larger pain zones, while the mini-sized round cakes may be a better choice for smaller body parts like the hand or wrist. If you want to soothe and relieve both sides of your neck, or both the front and back of one shoulder at the same time, the wrap is probably your best bet.
With the wrap appearing to be not much larger than a banana, and the larger round cakes looking to be about the size of a grapefruit, all of the Pain Cakes are fairly compact. Therefore, they won't take up much space in an average-sized freezer, and if you need to bring yours somewhere in a cooler, they'll likely fit in there comfortably with your food and drink, too.
You'll be able to use each of the pain-relief cakes in your set up to 100 times, without a decrease in its effectiveness, as long as you refreeze each one in between uses.
Pain Cakes look rather attractive, due to the fact that they come in bright colors such as purple, blue, green and orange. You'll receive a random mix of cakes, in some or all of these colors, in your own set. Their color will likely enable you to spot them more quickly among a bunch of other items in your freezer or cooler.
All of these ice packs are free of both latex and silicone, so if you're allergic to one of these substances or have sensitive skin, you'll still be able to use the packs without irritation. Silicone allergies aren't as common as latex allergies, but some people with sensitive skin can still develop a rash if their skin comes in contact with silicone for a certain period of time.
You'll be able to fit your Pain Cakes under most pieces of clothing. Consequently, if you're wearing them to work or to some other place where you don't want other people to see them, others likely won't notice them at all. Their discreet appearance may come in especially handy at an athletic event if you don't want other participants to know that you're injured or in pain.
If you were to use a standard ice pack, you'd likely have to spend time tying or taping it to yourself, or sitting down while applying it to your body. However, with Pain Cakes, you won't have to sit down or stop moving for even a few minutes after applying one. Once it's on, you can immediately go back to what you were doing, even if you were engaging in an intense training session or participating in a sports-related competition.
All the cakes in each set have been assembled in the United States, which indicates that materials of a certain quality have been used, and certain safety standards have been followed. With that implication in mind, you won't have to be extremely worried that one of your cakes will fall apart and start oozing gel while you're using it.
Pain Cakes are safe for people of all ages to use, so if a child under your care falls down and bruises or scrapes their skin, you can immediately stick one to them. They'll likely find one of these cakes more interesting to wear than a plain old plastic bandage. Take note that unless their injury is especially large, it's best to use one of the mini-cakes to treat it instead of a larger round cake or a wrap.
Even if you're not injured or in pain, the Pain Cakes may be useful on an incredibly hot day when you want to cool down. If you aren't able to use an air conditioner, just freeze a set of these cakes and then stick them to various areas of your body to feel the chill.

I really did not think these would work. Saw these on an ad on IG. I have carpal tunnel with residual pain in my fingers and neuropathy. These are life savers. I have several of them and would buy more.
