I really love this stuff. When I have a cold, I will rub some of this under my nose and it definitely helps me breathe. The camphor and menthol together work great. It also helps protect my skin from all the tissues I use. It's not a replacement for cold medicine, but it's really soothing and enhances the medicine.

I don't think this really works. I think it is more of a mental thing because I tried it and I felt no results.
