My parents used to have this cream a long time ago from the doctors, however they replaced it with a cheaper option as the NHS do!! However it did work for them so I decided to see if I could buy it online and Im so glad I have found it with Chemist Direct and at such a reasonable price. I used to take part in a lot of running activities when I was younger and my knees often ache now that Im 40, especially when its cold, it feels like tooth ache in my knees. This cream gives a welcome relief to that horrible throb I get now Im older. Definitely a winner for me!
