I was sold this product with the massage oil on a recent cruise and wanted to see how it worked when I got home. It was great. I use it at night after that was recommended by the cruise staff at the salon. The gel works on cramped muscles and so far, the nightly cramping has diminished. The smell of the gel combined with the oil isn't offensive and disappears in a few minutes. I'll definitely keep purchasing this (along with the oil) for as long as Groupon has it. Great buy!
