I bought this a few days ago because i always get pains in my back and wrist. Ibuprofen and pain medicines take too long to work. I had also tried different creams but none seemed to work. This one was perfect. It had a nice smell, kind of minty. The cream was a good thickness but didnt feel too cakey. It is fast-acting and lasts long! It not only calms the pain but numbs it. Im so glad i decided to try this!
