This gel is everything. Literally my life. I use it all over my back and abdomen for cramps and general pain. I also use it on my legs when I know I am going to have a latic acid flare up and don't want to experience the itching. The branding has changed a bit and it's no longer "Chillax" but just Muscle Recovery Gel. Get it, you won't regret it. ...read more

I love the smell of this particular salt. It's a bit menthol-y but I love it! I use it after hard workouts and it helps with muscle recovery. It's such a bonus after you've had a hard workout or long day! ...read more

I was first introduced to this product as an athletic training student in college (no thats not personal training). I love it. The smell can be off-putting for some, just like there are those weirdos who don't like the smell of tigerbalm (: Its an awesome solution for mild, superficial pain such as sore muscles, contusions or minor, closed lacerations. I have never seen the product in-stores but just about anything physical therapist, chiropractor or even some massage therapists have access to the product and can sell it at their discretion. Just be sure to apply with a glove on, otherwise your hand and the affected body part will be treated! ...read more

I like the heat of this product and also the smell. I haven't bought this product before but my mom always has some at hand and gives it to me. Another thing I actually use this product for is my lips. I apply it to my lips and it makes my lips plumper. Originally I thought it was a lip product before told otherwise! This product is also good used under the nose when I have a cold or a blocked nose. It helps to decongest. ...read more

When I was younger I suffered from really bad migraines. My Dr. prescribed Motrin. Recently, I've started suffering from migraines and ice pick headaches, blurred vision, loss of appetite and nausea. My mom reminded me that I should only be taking Motrin for my migraines, so I went to Shoppers and bought some. Instant and long lasting migraine relief. Tylenol and Aspirin just can't act as fast as Motrin can when I'm suffering from my migraines. ...read more

I'm currently using this to relieve some cramping and it's super easy to put on. My fiancé has to apply it to my lower back and because of the sponge tip applicator, he doesn't have to wash his hands afterwards. Easy to apply and of course it has the same great formula it's always had. I thought I'd give this a shot instead of a heating pad this time around. Doesn't work as well, but a great relief for on the road or needing relief at work. Definitely a keeper. ...read more
