I had tried every kind of arthritis rub on the market. Some just burned my skin but gave no real relief. I read about Castiva in Dr. Gott's column in the local newspaper and had to give it a try. With regular use, I can straighten one finger that has been crooked from arthritis for years. I prefer the cooling lotion because I can put it on my hands at night and wear sleep gloves for maximum benefit. Everyone with arthritis should give it a try!

Moderately effective, but greasy

It is moderately effective, but is REALLY GREASY, which stands to reason with a castor oil base, so it's not good for painful hands and leaves residue on clothes and sheets. Also, the package claims it is odor free, but it is not. It is not a bad smell, but strong enough I would not use it in the daytime. I have found others that are at least as effective,if not more, with no smell.

          Use daily for arthritic hands. Helps relive pain but not eliminate pain. Makes work bearable.

              This product is too thick, does not blend in with the skin, is too greasy and had absolutely no effect.

                    Comments about Castiva Arthritis Pain Relief Lotion, Warming, 4 oz:

                    It relieves the pain for hours.

                    I know it doesn't wash off hands easy and that also means it doesnt come off the area you put it on. But it also burns if you forget and touch your eyes.

                    I use as I said above disposible gloves.

                    I love this product. Gave some to my sister for her back pain and she orders it faithfully also.

                      I got this product as a sample and it really worked. Couldn't find it in any stores so was pleased to find it at drugstore.com I ordered two and shared one tube with family. Best pain reliever in a cream that I have found.
