I had forgotten this gem in my gym bag- only to find it after skating (poorly). It saved the day- I had a major knee injury that causes lots of pain and inflammation, particular in my IT band and knee tendons, and rubbing this on made it all bearable again. It works so well, you can trust it will never be “forgotten” again!
