Rated 5 out of 5 by Best muscle relief I am in my 30s now but I started using this in my early teen years. LOVE it! I used to use the regular strength, but either they discontinued it or it has been renamed. I have fairly sensitive skin, but I've never had the problems some reviewers reported. Any way, this is strong relief, it sinks in quickly-and a little goes a long way. Love the minty scent, even if the rest of the household doesn't! When I have a backache or period aches and pains that painkillers can't touch, I reach for this. Please don't ever discontinue this product! July 14, 2014

Rated 5 out of 5 by Will Definitely Buy This Product Again i'm new to using topical analgesics, but was I pretty happy with the Bengay Ultra Strength. There was no greasiness, and while the odor is strong, it`s not unpleasant or painful. I felt relief within minutes of applying it, and it made it easier to fall and stay asleep. I definitely plan to recommend this product to my friends and family, especially those that work in a field like construction, in the hopes that it will help relieve their chronic muscle aches.

Rated 5 out of 5 by amazing products 00967777929198 I Used it once as a friend of mine gave to me. It was a magic products which i recommend everyone to use. It's effective cream which has a fragrant scent ever. April 17, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Strong Scent, Fairly Strong Relief! I received Ultra Strength BENGAY, courtesy of Brand Power Home Testing. The scent is VERY strong... it didn't bother me, but it gave my fiance a terrible headache. I am exceptionally active for a woman in my 40's (I am a homesteader, and my job requires me to tote a 40-45 pound backpack and continually stand, climb, or "power walk" for up to 17 hours in a day). As a result, I constantly deal with aches and pains of various strengths, in various parts of my body. This ointment works fairly quickly (within about 5 minutes), and dries quickly, as well (both big "pros!"). It completely relieves my minor aches and pains. While my more severe ones are still present, Ultra Strength BENGAY does dull them, considerably. I also noticed that the relief lasts much longer than my usual brand of pain reliever. I get about 6 hours of relief, while I am active, and around 8 hours of relief while relaxed (for instance, at bedtime). April 14, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 love it I'm a teen and I use this for back pain and today I used it because I had sore feet after shopping for six hours. absolutely love it and relieves all pain quickly and thoroughly. so glad I discovered it. April 6, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Causes Burns I received a terrible burn from this product and i still have a scar. The cream to remove the scar is costly and i cannot afford to pay out of pocket but the consumer care dept will only reimburse so basically i will have to live with it. Sad that Johnson and Johnson will not pay for cream that i now need. I asked if they could just pay the pharmacy so i can pick it up. Was told that is not how they work. October 11, 2013
