My Arctic Blast Review – Pain Relieving Drops Or Scam?
It’s time for my Arctic Blast review – because it seems too unreal to be true:
- claims to relieve pain in 54 seconds
- promises pain relief for days with just a few drops
Now – this product is indeed unique, because it comes as drops.
But it’s pretty impossible that some of these drops can keep the pain away for more than a few hours.
So is Arctic Blast a scam or it’s simply overrated? I’ve tried it myself so I can speak from experience.
Note: This review is based on my experience with this product. I’m not trying to praise/criticize it or its company, I am simply telling my opinion about it.
So Let’s Get To The Review
Full Name: Arctic Blast Pain Relieving Drops from Biostar
Forms: Only liquid drops
Best Actual Price: $48.97
Best Place To Buy It: Ebay or Amazon, that’s where I found the lowest prices.
Designed For: Pain in general, whether it is:
- joint pain or arthritis
- muscle cramps
- pain due to previous injuries
My Rating: 1 out of 10 – One of the worst joint products I ever tried.
Worth Buying?: Definitely not, it’s really weak overall:
- doesn’t relieve the pain too much (in my case)
- even that minor relief lasts just a few minutes
- smells terribly
- really expensive
So overall – it’s much weaker than any cream I tried. If you really want a proper joint pain product, I really advise you to go for a supplement instead.
What I Liked About It
- Easy to use and apply
- It’s not greasy and doesn’t stick to the skin
- Gets absorbed within a few minutes
- Available in several retailers
What I Didn’t Like About It
- Most ingredients aren’t anything special
- Awful garlic smell
- Doesn’t keep its promises
- In my case, it wasn’t very effective
- It only decreased my pain for a few minutes
- You need to use more than 2-3 drops to feel any relief
- Many negative reviews
- No info about the company behind
- Costs a little fortune (almost $50 for 1 oz)
#1. Ingredients (7.50 out of 10)
Even though it claims to be a miraculous cure, Arctic Blast doesn’t have amazing ingredients:
- most are regular substances
- they are present in many joint creams
So basically – Arctic Blast isn’t that unique.
Now – let’s take a quick look at each ingredient:
1. Menthol (10%) – there’s nothing special about it:
- the most common ingredient in pain relieving creams
- produces a cold sensation
- relieves the pain for a short while
So basically – menthol produces a cooling sensation that actually hides the pain. It doesn’t treat or improve it in any form.
Plus – this relief only last from minutes to a few hours, so it’s not durable.
2. Camphor (3%) – does the same things:
- decreases the pain on the short while
- has a really strong mint smell
And just like menthol – you can find it in most pain relieving creams.
3. DMSO – it’s actually the main ingredient (according to the label).
However, I don’t consider it very useful:
- it’s a topical analgesic
- only hides the pain, without treating the problem inside
- has a terrible garlic smell
4. Other Ingredients – they aren’t too important, in my opinion:
- have much lower doses
- they are mostly additives
CONCLUSION: Except the DMSO, Arctic Blast doesn’t contain anything special.
It mostly has common ingredients, which you can find in most similar creams. So it’s far from a unique formula, if you ask me.
#2. Texture & Smell (6 out of 10)
When it comes to this, Arctic Blast has both good and bad points.
1. TEXTURE – Since it comes as drops, it looks quite different from creams:
- transparent color
- drops are pretty liquid
- soaks in the skin completely (no traces left)
So you only have to apply the drops, massage and they will get absorbed within minutes.
2. SMELL – It was surely the worst smell from every joint product I tried:
- smells like fresh garlic
- there’s also a touch a peppermint, but it’s really low
- so you mostly feel the garlic
- it lasts for several hours – more than the pain relief itself
So as I said, these drops smell absolutely terrible.
And just like that wasn’t enough – it’s also extremely intense. This means it doesn’t go away as fast as the relief does.
It actually stays in your skin for at least a few hours.
The responsible for this is the DMSO – which actually smells like garlic. So it transfers the smell to the liquid as well.
#3. How It Worked (5 out of 10)
Just like I somehow expected, these drops didn’t help me too much:
- my pain did decrease a bit after 2-3 minutes
- but it wouldn’t last more than 10
- so my pain would come back short after
Basically – these drops would help a little bit at first, but in 10 minutes my pain was back.
ITS MAIN PROBLEMS – the way I found them:
- Only works for a few minutes.
- The intensity of the pain doesn’t get much lower.
- It only hides it for a short while.
- It doesn’t do anything to treat the cause.
- Didn’t relieve the swelling from my hands.
And last but not least – it doesn’t work in 54 seconds, as it claims. In my case, it needed about 2-3 minutes to start working.
So basically – Arctic Blast didn’t even help me as much as regular creams (even though they don’t help much either).
If some creams would relieve my pain for a few hours, Arctic Blast doesn’t.
So for me, these drops didn’t do anything major. They were only a waste of time and money.
CONCLUSION: Overall, I would surely not recommend Arctic Blast:
- really weak
- didn’t work almost at all
So I can’t really tell why you would pay almost $50 for 1 oz of this liquid.
#4. How To Use It (8 out of 10)
Here’s the tricky part. When it comes to applying these drops, the label only mentions this:
- Add a few drops on the painful spot
- Let it soak in
- Your pain will decrease instantly
But my question is – How many drops do you have to apply? How much is “a few drops”?
To be honest – I couldn’t find an answer anywhere. Some recommended applying 2-3 drops, which I did. But there was almost no improvement.
For this reason – I started applying about 7-8 drops every time:
- the result was a bit better
- but the bottle was getting empty really fast
So basically – I still don’t know how many drops you should apply:
- with 2-3, you will probably feel no small change
- if you apply 7-8 or more, there will be a small improvement
- but in this case, your bottle will run out quickly
So if you already own this product, try it and let me know how many drops works best for you.
If you don’t have it already, I don’t advise you to buy it.
#5. Price (3 out of 10)
Despite not being too effective, Arctic Blast is still extremely expensive:
- It costs around $49 per bottle
- There’s only an ounce of liquid inside
- No special ingredients
Now – I tried to check out different websites, but the prices are about the same.
If you’re lucky enough, you may find a cheaper seller on Ebay – but:
- this retailer is not as safe as Amazon
- so many people are reluctant about buying from here
So if you want to get Arctic Blast from Amazon or the official website – you will have to pay about $49.
For these money, it’s extremely overpriced:
- It’s not just a temporary reliever, not a real treatment.
- Doesn’t even relieve the pain considerably.
- The relief lasts very little (about 10 minutes in my case).
- Doesn’t contain any special/trademark ingredient.
Normally – I wouldn’t recommend creams or topically pain relievers.
But when it comes to Arctic Blast, I don’t recommend it even 10% of how I recommend other creams.
#6. Other Opinions (4 out of 10)
Arctic Blast was one of the few creams I tried that had more negative reviews than positive.
Note: I only considered the reviews that were authentic, mostly from Amazon.
So here’s what most people complained about:
- No pain relieving effect.
- Terrible garlic smell that didn’t go away too easily.
- Really expensive for what it does.
Now – obviously, there were some positive reviews as well. But they were less numerous – compared to the number of negative ones.
So my conclusion is pretty simple:
- I wasn’t the only one who got no improvement
- about 65% people weren’t satisfied
Basically – this means one thing. Arctic Blast is definitely a pretty weak product – or in the best case, not as good as it claims to be.
#7. Best Things About Arctic Blast
To be honest, there aren’t many things to praise about this product.
I personally didn’t like it and I could not possibly recommend it. So here are the few positive things I managed to find about it:
- Easy to use – compared to usual creams.
- Soaks in really fast.
- Doesn’t stick to your skin almost at all.
Now – I know these are not major advantages.
But as I said, there were quite a few positive things about Arctic Blast. So this is just my personal opinion.
On the other hand – the negative side is much longer.
#8. Worst Things About Arctic Blast
At this chapter, there are a lot of things to complain about:
- I couldn’t find any info on the company behind.
- Very weak in terms of effect.
- The relief only lasts for a few minutes (in my case at least).
- Costs way too much for what it does.
- There’s only 1 oz per bottle (very little quantity).
- Terrible smell (also very intense).
- It doesn’t treat or improve the cause behind the pain.
- Most reviews I read were negative.
Now – these are the major things I found.
There may be some others as well, but in my personal opinion – these are the most important.
So considering these downsides, there’s no way I could recommend Arctic Blast. It’s very expensive and it doesn’t even keep its promises:
- doesn’t work in 54 seconds (in my case at least)
- you need to use more than “a few drops”
#9. Final Conclusions
Here’s how I would sum up my opinion about Arctic Blast:
1. Really Weak – that’s how it was for me:
- didn’t relieve my pain considerably
- the only relief I felt lasted for a few minutes
- my swelling didn’t decrease at all
Basically – Arctic Blast didn’t do anything of what it promised:
- It didn’t work in 54 seconds
- I needed to use more than a few drops
- But even more drops weren’t enough to decrease my pain for longer
For this reason, I consider this product way too weak for joint pain, arthritis or any pain in general.
2. Terrible Smell – that’s mostly because of one ingredient (DMSO):
- smells like garlic
- the smell stays in the skin longer than the relief
- it’s extremely intense
Now – there’s also a smell of peppermint, which makes these drops a bit more pleasant.
But you can still feel the garlic well enough – and that’s terrible.
3. Overpriced – for what it does, Arctic Blast costs a small fortune.
It’s not very effective and it has no special ingredients – but it still costs $50 per 1 oz. That is way, but way too much – in my opinion.
My Verdict – Is Arctic Blast Worth Buying?
Short answer: Definitely not. It was one of the worst products I tried overall:
- extremely expensive (almost $50 for 1 oz)
- didn’t improve my pain too much
- the relief only lasted a few minutes in my case
Plus – it didn’t keep its promises.
According to the official website, it works in 54 seconds and you only need a few drops to keep the pain away for days.
But in reality – that wasn’t the case at all.
So I would definitely not recommend Arctic Blast for any kind of pain, even minor issues. For these money, it’s surely not worth trying.
If you really need a good pain reliever, try a supplement:
- decreases the pain on the long term
- also treats the cause, not just the pain
- much cheaper overall
So my top recommendation is a supplement, because it’s a real treatment for joint problems. That’s what I would choose instead.
But obviously, it’s up to you what you decide.
