I pulled a muscle in my back and was in a lot of pain. I tried a variety of products (ibuprofen, Thermawrap, etc.) with no relief. My lower back was killing me, and I was having muscle spasms. Even walking, sitting or laying down was causing me pain. I went to my local CVS to ask if there was an over the counter muscle relaxer that I could take. As I had suspected, no such thing existed (I guess I would have to go to my doctor to get one). I didn't have the money for a doctor's visit, so the pharmacist that I spoke to recommended Bengay Zero Degrees. She said that a friend of hers had used it, and said that it worked "like a miracle". I was cautiously optimistic, since as I stated earlier, nothing else that I had tried worked. I put the Bengay into my freezer as directed, to get it cold. I applied a generous amount on my sore spot last night before I went to bed. I like how it has menthol, and combined with the fact that when you put it into the freezer, it feels nice and cool when you put it on. I woke up this morning, and to my surprise, my back pain and spasms are gone!! It really is like a miracle, and I can't believe that the pain went away. I will probably continue to use this for the next couple of days, just to be sure that the pain is really gone. This stuff works great, and I love it! I recommend it to anyone that has a pulled or strained muscle. I read that some people were saying that it cost a little more. But I don't mind paying for something that actually works, like this stuff does. I give this product five stars. *****

10 dollars is a pretty high price to pay for 3 ounces.hardly lasted a week and the other brand blue cooling product i-c-h** is the same price and it comes in a larger container. I use it for headache and need more already. I should of read the label better. Its impossible to tell the volume from the packaging so assumed it was more than what i purchased. It does work good.just need a larger size at a better price.

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!!!

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.
