  • Wasting money. You can do the same thing with regular lotion. Since most of these creams work by increasing the blood flow to the area which can be done with any lotion by the rubbing motion. I have a close friend that has a condition that causes her to scar horribly from any surgery and this is what she told me.

  • Good to know! I noticed the main ingredient was aloe, w/normal lotion-type ingredients also, so I was thinking "huh?" Ok, its already bought, so...when it runs out, I'll use lotion.
