This comes in a standing tube of 180g. I purchased mine from Yesstyle.com for about 20$ USD, which means I consider it somewhat expensive. To start off with I'll say I had no illusions about the fact that this is a diet gimmick type product. No gel or lotion can possibly melt fat away, but I didn't go into this with those expectations. This gel has a heating effect -- similar to putting on Icy Hot, but without the "icy" part. I wanted this because I knew it had the heating effect, which I consider extremely useful and pleasant for my abdomen and thighs especially during my cycle. The scent is a pleasant apple/ginger blend and the gel absorbs easily and doesn't leave behind any weird filmy feelings. I can't say I have noticed any firming effects but I also haven't been using long enough to definitively say "NO" on that front -- but I think we all know that it's not possible for something like this to truly change the body.
