Planetary Herbals Horse Chestnut Cream is sold in a bottle of 2 ounces for $12.50 and a bottle of 4 ounces for $23.50. You are unable to purchase directly from the manufacturer. We were able to find the 4 ounces size being sold for $16.45 on another website. The label says you will see best results after using this product for 6 weeks. We don’t know how long either of these sizes will last you if you are applying the cream as recommended. You may need to spend a lot more money to see your desired results.

There were mixed customer reviews for this product. Many said that this product worked for them. One customer said it works but you have to give it 3-4 months to see results. Mostly everyone agreed that it has a very fowl smell when you apply it.
Our Final Review of Planetary Herbals Horse Chestnut Cream
There are a couple of positive things about Planetary Herbals Horse Chestnut Cream. It has a strong group of ingredients that have been shown to be effective in treating varicose veins and helping blood flow. There are also no known possible side effects which would give you more confidence that it won’t cause you any adverse reactions. There are things that concern us as well. The guarantee seems great but will vary based on which retailer you purchase from and therefore doesn’t show us that the manufacturer has complete confidence in the product’s effectiveness. Another thing that we weren’t so sure about was how long it would take to see results. The label says you would see results after 6 weeks but some customers said it will take 3-4 months. We don’t know how many bottles of cream you will need to buy to last you that long and therefore don’t know how much it will really cost you. We feel that there may be better options out there.
