Since 30 is now on the horizon, I am entitled to admit that I have the aches and pains of an old lady. Enter: thisworks!

[thisworks' in transit muscle therapy]

First of all, it makes my brain bleed a little that thisworks hates punctuation. The insistence on keeping everything titled with lower case gives me hives. There is, of course, a reason for this. It's to represent the simplicity of their products. While, theoretically, this is a good idea. I don't think simplicity should turn one into a simpleton. Of course, this is where my issues with the brand end. Here on out, they make me very happy!

The packaging of thisworks' products is always extraordinary! It's so very reflective of the products within, and in this case, the product contains pepper, and so the packaging is fiery hot! LOVE IT!

So, what exactly is this? The best roll-on muscle relaxant ever! 

The packaging on this is extremely compact and portable, so it's perfect for taking with you on the go.

I will say this. The smell takes some getting used to. It's not unpleasant, it's just potent. After a while, however, reinforcement will kick in and you will start associating the smell with relaxation, and you will love it!

I use this primarily for my shoulders because that's where my stress centre is. It's the most miraculous thing! You roll it on, you feel it warm the area, and you feel the tightness dissipate. It combines the essential oils of marjoram, black pepper and clove to relax, stimulate and relieve pain respectively, making it far more efficient and effective than stuff like Salonpas will ever be. The effect is almost immediate!

For the record, if you have a headache, this can be used on your temples as well, though their stress less (review upcoming) may be a better bet for that. 

All in all, if you enjoy relaxation (if you don't, I shall await news of your diagnosis of high blood pressure and/or heart disease), this is what you want in your life.

It retails for RM89 and is available through Luxola.


  1. Hmmm...interesting that 30 is the NEW old lady?!

    1. Only because I honestly didn't believe I would live this long! I figured I would die at 27 and join Jim Morrison, Janis Joplin and Jimi Hendrix wherever they landed after they died!

    2. No, Arpita, you and I will grow old together. And we'll still be buying more makeup and makeup brushes than we'll ever need for many, many lifetimes. I hold you to this! You are my partner in SHIME so you must live a long and lovely hoarding life.

    3. Without a doubt we will, but by that time one of us will possibly have either a daughter or a cross-dressing son to blame the purchases on!
      United in SHIME for life! *fistbump*
