I picked up Equate Ultra Strength Muscle Rub because it was the only thing available at a reasonable price in my local general store. I was in desperate need of pain relief in my hamstrings after heavy deadlifts and wasted no time applying the cream. The cream appeared to be very similar to Bengay, but it had a slightly chalky consistency. The cream left a little residue behind, but once it dried up I was able to just brush it off my skin. This product did a great job of cooling my hamstrings while increasing circulation to my affected areas to promote healing. I was amazed by how long the Equate Muscle Rub Cream worked on my achy muscles. I was able to get several hours out of a single application. The only issue I ever had with this product is that I once forgot to wash this product off my body and went for a run in 85 degree weather. 10 minutes into my run and the area I applied the cream was on fire. I ended getting a rash and it took about 2 weeks for it to clear up.
