Headache? 26,000+ Amazon shoppers say this ice cap can help — get it for $30 (that's 40% off)

'It feels heavenly': Slip on this stretchy, gel-filled mask for cold or hot therapy.

There is no one-size-fits-all treatment for headaches. For some, medication may be the way to go, while others may turn to caffeine, massage or a nice lie-down t in a dark room. Ice packs are another popular remedy, but they can constantly slip off, presenting yet another hassle. Well, there's a genius solution at Amazon: It's called the TheraIce Migraine Relief Cap, and it's designed to help deliver relief to your head and face when you need it most. The price is pretty pain-free, too — "head" on over and grab one for just $30, a 40% savings.

The freezable gel inside this ice cap can help relieve tension wherever you need it — temples, forehead, face.

Why is this a good deal?

While $30 isn't the absolute cheapest we've ever seen this cap, the fact that it's 40% off makes it a worthwhile purchase. (It's been on sale for as much as $40 in the past.) It's also reusable, so you can repeatedly get relief — cheaper than shelling out for a new bottle of over-the-counter pain relievers every month.

Why do I need this?

The TheraIce cap is simple to use. Store it in your freezer in the included zip bag to get it nice and cold. It's stretchy and soft, allowing you to easily slip it over your face. There's gel inside to help deliver cooling relief as you rest. Just pull it down over your eyes and kick back — it's that easy. Prefer heat therapy? You can also zap it in the microwave to warm up the gel.

Because the cap is so stretchy, you can wear it down over your eyes, slide it up over your forehead or use it somewhere in between — wherever you need it most! Worth noting: The thick black material also helps block out light, a nice bonus if you're struggling with sensitivity to brightness. Oh, and it's one-size-fits-all, so the whole brood can use it.

What reviewers say

More than 26,000 verified shoppers swear by the TheraIce cap.

"I used this mask as a last resort for the migraines I was having," shared a five-star fan. "I was to the point of going to the ER and tried this since ... it came in on a day I had a migraine. I popped it in the freezer for an hour or so and as soon as I put it on my head, my headache started to ease. I left it on until it went room temperature and then I put it back in the freezer and waited a while and wore it again before bed. Woke up today fully refreshed and no more migraine!"

A fellow satisfied shopper agreed: "I have had migraines my entire life. There isn’t a medicine I have not taken. This head wrap is a game-changer if I can use it at the onset of a headache. Cold around the head really helps to calm inflammation and brings pain down. I also love how it covers the eyes and brings me to complete darkness. It’s a comfort to have the entire head surrounded with cold instead of trying to balance an ice pack on one side."

"It feels heavenly and puts pressure in just the right places," added a final user. But if you're sensitive to the cold, take note, they said: "If I put it in the freezer it feels way too cold, but the fridge gives it that cooling sensation without hurting your ears." (It's good to have options!)

This specialized cap also blocks out potentially irritating light.

Another soothing product Amazon shoppers love? This heated eye massager:

This eye-pampering mask heats up to 107° F, and its built-in speakers even allow you to zone out to calming tunes via Bluetooth.

"You guys, I never take the time to make reviews, but this thing: It is next-level," wrote a satisfied reviewer. "My headache is gone. Not only does it give you gentle heat and eye rubs, it also massages your temples, which is a total soft spot for me. I’m in awe. I feel so relaxed. The pressure is so perfect. How they made this thing feel like hands rubbing my head is just such a mystery."
