There’s nothing worse than the severe pounding of a migraine. The intense pain can last for hours and can be quite debilitating if it flares up when you’re not at home or at work. And according to NHS England, around ten million people aged 15-69 in the UK suffer from migraines.
While most migraine sufferers are prescribed medication or take painkillers to reduce the hammering pain, many also claim these Kool ‘n’ Soothe cooling gel strips are a great additional method for fast cooling relief.
Normally £2.99, you can currently pick up a box of four strips for a mere £2.33 on Amazon – that’s a saving of 22 per cent.

Designed to offer up to eight hours of continuous cooling, these Kool ‘n’ Soothe strips should be applied across the forehead or on the back of your neck at first signs of a migraine or tension headache.
Shoppers have left hundreds of five-star reviews praising the non-medicinal sheets, with many saying they provide soothing and comforting relief instantly.
One Amazon shopper wrote: ‘I have been using these strips now for about ten years during migraine attacks. I find that the best approach is to combine these cooling strips with a darkened room and a simple eye mask.
‘My only criticisms of these is strips is that a) they are quite pricey if you use them regularly, and b) they are wrapped in sachets of two strips – if there is a long interval between using the first and second strip, it does feel like they lose their cooling ability a little. Overall I would recommend trying these out as a part of your migraine management strategy.’

Kool ‘n’ Soothe recommend storing any unused gel sheets in the foil pouch by folding over the top and advise each gel sheet should only be used once.
Another shopper added: ‘Easy to use. They stay put if you have a nap (not sure if they’d stay on all night) and instantly cool your forehead and relieve tension headaches. Light relief. For migraines you may need painkillers as well but these are more comfortable at least.’
A third reviewer wrote: ‘I suffer with migraines and always have these in the house. They are great and really help me to function a bit better. I have young children and sometimes a migraine will knock me back, so it’s brilliant having this to help.’
