    Cryogel's website

    I've had this stuff now for 2 weeks and some odd days...Mike (the owner) is a kick ass guy...he sent me a ton of samples...and well after two weeks of using them...I think I'm finally ready to write a review.

    I'll begin with the fact that Cryogel comes in 3 choices...Original Blue, Lavender Breeze Aromatherapy, and Island Rain Antioxidant.

    For the most part, they all have the same core of ingredients as far as I can tell, with minor differences in ingredients for fragrance purposes and what not. This isn't your grandfather's Ben-Gay or Icy Hot folks...this stuff doesn't smell like a medicine factory and it works....

    And WORK it does......rubbing this on my back, legs and arms after rolling on the mat for 60-90 minutes is the best way to recover after a hard night of training. It kicks in within 30 - 45 seconds after rubbing it on and it feels like having a ice pack right on your muscles/tendons/joints. A "oh so nice" feeling....very relaxing. So after 2 weeks of using this stuff pretty much after everytime I roll/train, I can say it works rather well. It hit's the target areas and allows me to sleep through the night without muscle cramp and wake up the following morning without pain.

    This product definitely has my seal of approval!

    I have been using it for a bout a week now and I have to say that I never used Tiger Balm or Ben-gay because of the smell. THis stuff is great, smells good and works well.

    Mike-Thanks for the samples and now lets talk about me carrying your products.

    Where can you get trial samples? I've used everything from the muay thai linaments, tiger balm, bengay, icey hot to what I use currently, Capzasin, recommended by my sports doc for muscle pain. Capzasin is the stuff found in hot peppers. When you put it on, its like being hit with a low dosage of pepper spray. Hehehe, it gets really warm, but doesn't smell like medicine.

    You guys are saying that it doesn't smell bad.

    Would you be able to put this stuff on and then go to work? I hate that I can't put tiger balm on and go to work, though tiger balm works really well. I've been looking for a non-smelly solution

    It's noticeable in the sense that there's a slight medicine smell.

    There must be something wrong with the samples I got free from budovideos some time back then... They do absolutely nothing.

    I'll just keep using my tigerbalm - nothing wrong with smelling like menthol.

    I've kept my gym bag stocked with a tube of Cryogel for about two years now. A $10 tube will last you a very long time, and it smells/works much better than Icey Hot or equivalent.

    About a year ago, I had a family member try a free sample for her on and off knee pains (she shows dogs), and she's been raving about it ever since.

    I haven't touched tiger balm since I got my first samples of cryogel. I make sure and stay stocked with that noise. I'd probably have missed a few days of training this week without it-- rotator cuff was all irritated.

    edit-- woo! 1000th post. whatev.:redface:
