Better Than Blue Cream is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 27.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not better than Blue I found the cream doesn't soak into my skin and has a lingering fragrance that is not pleasing. Does it work better, I'm not sure because I don't want to use it any longer to give it a fair trial.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Husband said it helps. My husband says it helps. It is not as effective for him as the Ultra Blue that Swanson sells, but it helps some, and is less expensive.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Okay ... but This product is pretty good, it works okay, doesn't have a bunch of bad boogie in it, but the packaging is awkward. Would be better in a tube or with a pump bottle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It really is Better Than Blue The original Blue got so expensive I had to quit buying it. I tried all the pain ointments at the drug store. Nothing compares to Swanson's Better Than Blue. My husband says I need a bathtub full of this blue stuff and at this price.... Thanks Swanson. I wish it came in a 16 oz pump jar.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Reordered Third Time Never used Blue Cream, but jumped directly to Better Than Blue Cream and am quite happy with this cream which I mostly use as a face cream after morning shower and drying. The product gets absorbed by the skin immediately and feels nice and moist without any oily residue. Very happy with it. The packaging is also excellent so no wastage of any kind. Can use the last milligram of it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Disappointed in product! i was looking forward to receiving this product, because it sounded so good from the description. However, after using it, I did not like it nearly as much as the product I've been using for years----Peaceful Mountain. I will not be ordering this again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Glad I tryed Have used blue Emu for years and found better than blue to work better with less mess and cost. It truly lives up to its name.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Stuff Works better than the blue stuff for me
Date published: 2014-07-22
Rated 5 out of 5 by from End of a long search I spent lots of cash trying to find a product that worked as well as this cream. I use it daily which makes my day more pleasant.
Date published: 2014-04-30
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Buy This is a good product made better by using oil of Emu on top of it. Better than blue dries out with rubbing in and rolls up in solid particles but by following with a few drops of the oil it leaves the skin surface slightly oily with no other residue. I believe that this treatment is synergistic and beneficial to both products and their effects

Rated 5 out of 5 by from As the name implies.... It really is better than the blue stuff.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Soft, Silky, Soothing! Love it a LOT! I have tried a lot of comfort creams, and this is the first one I have found that I love this much. There is no tell-tale smell at all. It is so silky smooth that I can use it easily on my legs, neck, arms, back ... anywhere I need it. Works fast, too! I highly recommend it. You simply cannot beat this one! I know. I have looked all over! My mobility and joint comfort is the best it's been in years!
