What we like about it-
Aside from being incredibly effective, the spearmint scent is pleasant and the gel makes it easy to apply. This liniment can be used before or after workouts and can be used anywhere except on the back before saddling.
The liniment can be made more effective for legs by wrapping it with breathable material.
This liniment can also be used for human use. However, it is considered very strong, so caution is advised.
What we don’t like about it-
If you look at the inactive ingredients you can see that there are a few chemical ingredients that could possibly cause skin irritations. This is very uncommon, but doing a small patch test is recommended before human use. Possible side effects include rash and itchiness.
In conclusion,`Absorbine is a terrific product to use for pre and post exercise soreness.
