Biofreeze

Posted by Melissa K on 8/15/02 at 21:22 (092627)

There is an herbal extract called Ilex in Biofreeze that has a somewhat numbing effect and it works along with camphor and menthol to ease muscle and joint pain. In my experience it works better than icy hot and bengay and the initial smell that is present when you apply the gel goes away after a few minutes so you don't smell all day long. It also lasts longer than icy hot and bengay.
