    "I love this heating pad. I use it for menstrual cramps and stomach aches. It really provides a lot of relief and is very soothing. It's also great for snuggling in bed during the winter. One day, I fell asleep in bed with it and I woke up with my cat on my stomach on top of the pad. So, I ordered another one for him! I love how affordable it is." —Grace

    "This pad is great! It gets warm quickly and you can wet the insert to get really nice damp heat into your muscles. I typically use it when I’m on my period because I get the worst cramps. This delivers heat to my aching body quickly, which is the most important quality I look for in a heating pad. It’s great quality for the price in my opinion!" —Brenna Engstrand

    "I bought this for my lower back as I have pain there. I like this pad because I can also bring it to work if need be. Right now it lives in my work bag and should I need it at home, I just grab it out. I like the different heat settings and the length of the cord is great. Very happy with my purchase and would gladly buy again." —Angel

    The heating pad also has an A grading on Fakespot, so you know all those reviews are legit.

    Happy heating, my friends!
