I couldn't agree more with previous reviewers Asig and Heather. The applicator needs to be redesigned as it is blunt and catches on delicate vaginal tissue. I dread each application for that factor alone. And then Heather's review is right on...I'm using my first tube right now, and there was a massive air bubble in it! I thought I had half a tube left, and after the air bubble, I ... Show Full Comment

The last time I spent $100 on a small tube. If I knew the cost had escalated, I would not have purchased. (I try to use it sparingly because of possible side affects.)
