This is my favorite cream truly helps with arthritic pain a little strong on the smell but I hate peanuts so , hay it's not bad .
Just wish I was a little easier to find .
My colleague gave me this cream when I was in Hungary for a meeting and suffering from a running injury. He swore it would help. At first I just assumed it was something that would (maybe) be mildly helpful, but took the cream out of politeness. I was absolutely astonished that it DID work. Not 'sort of 'work, but REALLY work. Within a few days, I was able to run again! He let me keep the rest of the tube, which I have been using sparingly when I really need it to make it last. But, I am now at the end of the tube, and am SO glad I was able to find it on this site! This stuff is truly amazing.

Is Flexagil available yet? I'm desperate. How can I be notified when it is back in supply. It is the only product that allows me to move without pain. Absolutely brilliant.

My husband and I love this Flexigel pain relief cream. From the wonderfully soothing aroma which, unlike the chemical smell of many other pain relief creams, it smells more like a herb than a pain relief cream. Coupled with its effectiveness, I'm not surprised that we always have such a hard time finding it to purchase.
Knowing that I can come direct to Blackmores to purchase it, and to have it automatically sent out when it's needed is a boon.
Brian and I have tried many topical ointments and creams over the years, most have had little to no effect whatsoever- yet Flexigel actually works and works well.
Would really appreciate being notified when this is back in stock so that we can find some relief again.
Thanks for making such a terrific and holistic product. Would really love it if you could keep it in stock though.

This is a very effective product.
I have clicked on the "notify me when available" and look forward to this working when the cream becomes available again.
I have used many other products but this one really does work.

My chemist told me that the cream had been deleted and could not get it anymore.. So glad that's not the case. I have put so many people on this cream and they are so happy with it as I am.

I am just wondering if there is an update on when the Flexagil may be available again?
