Tiger Balm Neck and Shoulder Rub

With the hustle and bustle of the city life, I always wish that I have more than 24 hours to catch up on sleep and rest.
I wish I go to work everyday as if a holiday:

But sadly no, my work is busy, busy, busy all the way:

On top of my full time job, I repair PCs on the side and also attend a lot of events as well during non-working hours to have fun and quench my blogging passion:

In the midst of doing so, there's bound to be aches in many areas as you grow older (ya, I admit I'm old) and a lot of tension build around the neck/shoulder area. Even though, I try my best to have a proper sitting position but yet the tiredness will eventually get to me. And what's more, I don't exercise much.

Not paying much attention to it, I usually just ignore and bear the discomfort. If a person like me who goes back home on time, I fail to imagine how much more discomfort a person would feel for those who work longer hours.

So Tiger Balm has came up with a Neck & Shoulder Rub and Neck & Shoulder Rub Boost:

It is a convenient and effective solution and small to carry around and is specially formulated to provide fast and soothing relief for the tense and tired muscle with the concept of “Massage on the Go”, just like going to the spa. It did help me out on my back when I get too tired.

Now, I have not heard of the Tiger Balm brand for a very, very long time - not since primary school days. And those days, I famously remember it being this only:

Transparent looking ointment in a small container. That's all I remember of it. I can't remember how it feels like when you apply it.

So I decided to try the Neck & Shoulder Rub on and see how is it:

As you can see from the picture above, the ointment is white in color, Boost and the regular one is the same. It's non-greasy so when applied, it does not leave any oily residue on your skin and it absorbs quickly. The Tiger Balm Neck & Shoulder Rub Boost is a stronger version of the normal one. I kinda get a kick out of it and surprisingly to me, it reinvigorates me and actually energize me like an energy drink!

The Tiger Balm Neck & Shoulder Rub Boost has a minty, familiar smell but I just can't put a finger on where I've smelt that before.

I don't need to apply much on this because the sensation is strong, perfect for over-stressed, tired and stiff neck and shoulder muscles and like I said before, it's effect not only relieves my ache but energizes me like an energy drink! No, in fact, it's effect is even more faster than an energy drink!

As for the regular Tiger Balm Neck & Shoulder Rub, this also has quite the same relieving effect but on a more milder note.

Hence, it's good for mild neck and shoulder aches which I believe most of us has. It also emits a soothing lavender scent, a pleasant smelling fragrance.

As you can see from my pictures above, the Tiger Balm Neck and Shoulder Rub, Regular and Boost comes in a 50g flat tube which makes it carrying around easy. It's shape is design to provide an ergonomic approach in squeezing out the contents. The color and design of the product is modern and sleek.
