Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 17 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love it! Worked well for my lower back and shoulder pain. Pain relief lasted a long time. I would definitely recommend this product. July 17, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Works great This is not your regular Bengay. Applies like a deodorant so nothing on hands. Very light scent. Most of all it works! Use it mostly for low back pain. Keep it in the freezer. When I apply it to painful area it doesn't seem that cold, but if I put it on an area not in pain it is freezing cold. I have referred this product to friends, everyone raves about it. Love Bengay Zero!!! June 10, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Not just for joint pain I've used this product for soothing the aches and pains in my knee, but I've also started using it for migraine control. Bengay Zero Degrees is so much better than a cold washcloth or taking a pain pill. Instant relief from my headaches by just dabbing this product on my forehead. June 8, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Works great for minor arthritis. I have extensive arthritis, and on areas where the arthritis is not bad, it worked great. On areas where it is pretty bad, it didn't do much, but it also only claims to work on minor arthritis. I love the applicator! It made it easy to apply, and no mess! I will definitely buy it in the future. (I received a free sample) April 30, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by pleasantly surprized I received this from brand power home testers club. I was a little skeptical at first but was pleasantly surprised at the outcome. It worked pretty quickly and helped my backpain like nothing that I've found before. the way it is packaged makes applying the product quick and leaves no mess on your hands with it very nice. Love the product and will definitely continue to use this April 30, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by A Cool relief from pain I am in constant pain and after using this product, I finally had some relief. I really love the no-mess application that means I will not be getting any in my eyes after applying. But I especially love the cooling effect when applied to the painful areas. This product works!

Rated 5 out of 5 by For the ones in Pain wonderful product working its wonders ;) I had gardening projects over the weekend where I felt like I over hurt my back. it was painful to move even after hot shower. I have decided to use it on my back before I went to bed. Its been great since I hardly had any existence of pain when I woke up this morning April 14, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 NOT PAIN RELIEF, JUST COOLING This product did not relieve my pain it just provided temporary cooling at the site. April 14, 2014
