Q: Where is this located in the store? I couldn't find it anywhere, and felt stupid asking, lol.

submitted by Target Lover - 6 months ago
  • A: Aisle A10, on each of the online target products it says near the title which aisle it's located in. If your target is like mine lol it's probably in a locker glass case. So you will have to get a rep

Q: In the drug facts, those "hci" should be "HCl" (lowercase L) for hydrochloride, which is super common in pharma. A global site fix/error: every medication with "hci" should be "HCl" (lower L)

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This hemorrhoidal cream was unscented and a thick consistency. It came with a cap to allow easy application for hard to reach places. It was effective at relieving discomfort.

My Go To Hemorrhoid Relief

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I don’t know what I would do without Preparation H. Unfortunately I have suffered from hemorrhoids for many years and I have tried many products to find any type of relief. There is nothing better than Preparation H for all of my hemorrhoids issues. It’s very soothing and it helps with the itching and burning almost immediately. I rely on it to get me through these rough times and it has never disappointed me.

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I didn’t realize this was for your butt when I signed up to review it. I don’t have problems in that area therefore can’t use this. I’ve used other prep h products before and I can say they are a good brand with quality products.

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I honestly wasnt crazy for this product. Two qualities i did like was that there was almost no scent and the texture was smooth. I wouldn't say it was ineffective but maybe not the best for me. I couldnt get over the lack of absorption.

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This cream does exactly what it advertises and helps with itching and discomfort very quickly even after just one use. It comes with attachment if needed too. Good size container so it will last a very long time and doesn't have a scent.

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] A great combination of Pramoxine and Phenylephrine in Preparation H Multi-Symptom Pain Relief Cream to offer fast relief, targeting pain, burning, itching, and discomfort when suffering hemorrhoids. Enriched with vitamin E, panthenol, and aloe, it also reduces swelling. The external application is very helpful and the tube is perfect, not too small nor too big.

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This is one of those products that you hope you never have to use, but you’re eternally grateful for if you do need it one day. Over the years, there have been occasions where this has completely saved the day and has provided very quick relief. We’ve found it to be useful in several applications, from normal cases where it provides relief, to backpacking/camping for a week when you can’t shower as frequently and start having some discomfort. The package comes with a tube and a separate applicator for extra convenience. In my opinion, this is definitely an essential product to have in your home’s medicine cabinet.

Improves discomfort

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I was not prepared for this not so plesant forever reminder that I had kids. This cream has definitely helped with decreasing the swelling at any given time and associated discomfort. It’s just a little greasy like most protectant creams so I’d recommend using a liner after application. I’ve been “lucky”enough to not experience itching or burning so I can’t speak to these symptoms at this time. Thanks Influenster for allowing me to try this product in exchange for my honest review
