Pros: doesn't leave greasey residue, helps with aches and pains, reasonably priced
Cons: leaves odor in your clothing, smells

As I am getting older I am noticing more aches and pains than ever before. I take Motrin or Tylenol, but it just doesn't always help especially with the back and shoulder pain. And it’s not something bad enough to spend money going to the doctor for. So I was in the store and on a whim thought about BenGay. 

I was hesitant because the main thing I remember about Bangui once you put it on, it’s over. You will be smelling like  that the rest of the night. Well, I bought it deciding I would give it a try. It did help with some of the intensity. I was able to move around without looking like I was 80 years old. So I kept using it. It worked even better with an oral pain reliever. 

I also liked that it was Greaseless so it didn’t destroy your clothes when you put it on like traditional BenGay. It rubs completely into the skin. There is none of that oil residue that gets in your clothes that won’t come out.  Now I do have one complaint, and that is there is no disclaimer about showering. I had just finished a shower to relax my muscles. I had dried off and started putting on BenGay and about 5 seconds my back was on fire. I ran for about 2 minutes before brain kicked in telling me to go back to the shower. I turned the water cold and hopped and stood there for about 20 minutes. 

So I recommend it but not after a shower. Wait at least 1-2 hours. But it does help with pain.
