Tiger Balm (Red) Super Strength Pain Relief Cream 30g (Health and Beauty) I have Adhesive Capsulitis (better known as frozen shoulder) in my right shoulder and arm, it's so painful not even narcotic medication helps much with the pain. A friend suggested that Tiger Balm works really well for pain so I decided to give it a try. I ordered a jar from GiveOBuy as it seemed to be the best deal and offered free shipping with no minimum purchase, the downside to that is that it comes from Thailand so it took about 25 days to reach me here in Oregon. However, the packaging was done nicely and even before I opened it I could smell the strong medicine especially the cloves. My roommate thought I was burning incense! I was pleased to see that this batch was made in August of 2015 and doesn't expire until August of 2019, so it's fresh and potent.One other thing is that it's not really red in color as you can see from the photo it's more like a rusty orange.I'm happy to say it really worked to ease the sharp aching pain! As a matter of fact I just purchased one for my mother. Surprise mom! :) SIDE NOTE: I am not sure why this particular seller had such bad reviews but, keep in mind that those negative reviews were from two years ago. I can assure you this product is legit. I just purchased another jar for a friend of mine who was complaining about severe pain in his right hand where the thumb joint meets the palm. Once he gets his I will give an update from his experience. It's a good buy but, next time I will order a bigger size because I'm going through it fast and since shipping takes almost 3 weeks it just makes more sense. However, with that said you can see by the photo that the jar is still half full and I've been applying it twice a day for 2 weeks so I'd say a little goes a long ways!!
Didn't get what I thought. There was less than half the amount I thought. Should have known something was not right when I could not find how much was in it. For a little bit more I get more than twice as much. Beware when buying on line or anywhere else.
I LOVE Tiger Balm. Love it. I use the red extra strength almost every day. It stains my clothes and pillows and I don't even care. That's how great it is.
That said, this Tiger Balm was useless. I don't know if it was a bad batch or what, but it simply didn't work. Didn't smell like Tiger Balm and felt about as strong as baby lotion on my skin.
It did come in a cool hexagonal box and had no English on it whatsoever, so that was kind of neat. Still, I'd rather have Tiger Balm that works. I recommend getting your Tiger Balm from a different source.
I normally love this product but for some reason, this particular product is not the strength of pain relief that I normally receive when buying this @ Walgreens. It was like rubbing vasoline on your skin. Absolutely worthless. I feel this is false advertising because your expecting the same pain relief that this product is noted for.
The product is great, smells good, works.. But I feel mislead in the amount I thought I was getting. It came in a large box which was actually funny. This is a lip balm size jar. So if you want more than a lip balm size amount order accordingly. Disappointed. 10gram is TINY!!
