  • Not for us

    0.5 out of 5

    Not for us, i have had to throw this away. I do not recommend it for babies and I do not think it is trustworthy, we were not impressed by this product at all.


  • Good teething gel

    4 out of 5

    I used this for my son when teething seemed to get quite bad. It would give him instant relief and stop the tears! Great price and easily accessible


  • Must have!

    4 out of 5

    Most of the time this gel helped my son. He wasn’t a big fan of the flavour so sometimes it was hard to get it where it needed to be. It seemed to provide temporary relief but he really needed it more often than the box said. It does seem to work fairly quickly when you can get it in the right spot


  • Great

    4.5 out of 5

    I know Bonjela has had a lot of bad press, but it really does work. Just make sure you follow the directions and don’t overuse.


  • Is a must have

    5 out of 5

    I love bonkers teething gel it’s a must have!
    I got it for my sons because my parents used it on me when I was younger. It works a treat


  • Relief relief

    5 out of 5

    Not sure what exactly it does.
    But everyone told me to get this whilst my daughter us teething.
    I think it does help, and gave some kind of relief.


  • Excellent

    5 out of 5

    I’ve used this for all my babies while teething and it seems to give instant relief. It’s easy to apply and isn’t too expensive. Would definitely recommend to other mums.


  • Good but can be hard to use

    4 out of 5

    We found this product pretty good but it can sometimes be hard to use as baby bites down on your finger and pulls it out before you can rub the gel on her gums.
    But when it’s on there properly, it seems to soothe her.


  • Has come in handy!

    5 out of 5

    My little one is teething and have only had to use this a few times. She seems to really enjoy the taste and takes her pain away. Highly recommend.


  • very good

    4 out of 5

    This is the one thing that you can’t test yourself and has to be judged by how the kid reacts on its usage. it worked fairly well with my son. he would ease down within minutes. recommend. pls read instructions and caution.


  • Good but need to be use with caution

    2.5 out of 5

    I was using it for very short time as i there was a big rumor about harm cause by this product if use incorrectly or in big amount. I never know how much is pea size …


  • Handy

    4 out of 5

    I do reccommend this product as it seems to calm my kids down but having tried it on myself it doesn’t seem to work. Seems like more of an addition to my kids but I never give more than the reccommended dose! I keep it in the fridge and the changed the texture of the mouth when used. Tastes like liquorice.


  • I have had this product in my home for 20 years !

    5 out of 5

    Bonjella has always served my family well. Amazing for the teething of babies. it helped during that time and I will never forget it. It stings a little bit and tastes a bit like licorice, but does the job perfectly. I apply about a pea size portion to the affected area and leave it for about 2 minutes. The family use this for mouth ulcers as well. I absolutely recommend for your babies and the families oral health inflamed mouths.


  • Great for teething

    4.5 out of 5

    We use this one following the advice of my sister. She keeps hers in the fridge so it feels even better on bubs teeth. It seems to help our little one. Only use advised amount.


  • Eases the pain

    4 out of 5

    Used for my toddler when he was teething and using currently for my infant, when applying the gel it’s not a present feeling as it does sting the gums a little (personally tried it) but after that sting, the gum is numb and therefore eases the pain for the little one, do follow instructions when using the gel


  • Relief

    4 out of 5

    It does help and what helps it even more is if you put it in the fridge it will feel cold on there gums !


  • Always works

    4.5 out of 5

    I have been using this product on my 4 kids when they were teething. Always provides pain relief for a little while. Tastes good too


  • Works quickly

    5 out of 5

    I love how quickly this product works. Some nights nothing seems to settle my son, not even a bottle. I can massage some bonjella onto his gums and he calms right down almost instantly.


  • Good for wisdoms

    5 out of 5

    I actually used this on my wisdom teeth few years ago and couldn’t believe it actually made a difference. Will def buy this for when my little one is teething


  • Saved my sanity

    5 out of 5

    I don’t think I would of survived teething without a few tubes of bonjela I also get a specially made one from the chemist however both do the trick


  • HHelps so much

    2.5 out of 5

    Bonjella Pain relief teething gel certainly helps my young grandkids sore gums. After putting on the gel, they feel a lot better and stop crying from the teething pain. I would really recommend it.


  • Works as expected

    3.5 out of 5

    My baby started teething and this aided in providing immediate relief. I only give it to her when she’s really upset and it seems to calm her so will keep using.


  • Works great

    4.5 out of 5

    Bonjela was great while my daughter was teething. A smooth gel made application easy however the taste made my daughter spit it. It worked fast once applied and would sooth for hours before needing to reapply.


  • Bonjela has been around for a long time

    5 out of 5

    I used Bonjela on my kids gums when they were teething, now my grandkids are using it. I think it helps to relieve the pain of teething. It’s easy to use, easy to get and not dangerous


  • This is a must

    5 out of 5

    I am one of those women who has experienced teething in her teen and adult life (damn wisdom teeth) and this is my teething gel of choice! It is fast acting and lasts a while, extra bonus, it doesn’t taste horrendous. It’s why I never hesitated to use it on both my babies when they began teething!


  • Works!

    4.5 out of 5

    This works so well on my little boy who is teething he will be screaming in painand as soon as I get this on to his gums he is a lot calmer!


  • Great - right up to their molars

    5 out of 5

    We have had Bonjela on hand for the last 15 years. My daughters have enjoyed the relief it brings to their gums – even as young teenagers getting their adult molars.


  • Teething help

    4.5 out of 5

    Bonjela has been around for many years and still does the perfect job by soothing little ones when they are teething,my girl friends and I always used it and discussed it’s ben.


  • Teething gel

    4 out of 5

    I liked this teething gel it helped my kids and I used it frequently for my kids but stopped using it after I heard that it had alcohol in it .


  • A teething lifesaver!

    5 out of 5

    We use a combination of things to help soothe our teething girl such as naturopath teething powders but sometimes this doesn’t cut it and the Bonjela comes in handy as it saves us from restless middle of the night aches. We only use it in the middle of the night as it really does numb the gums. I used to use it for my wisdom teeth until I finally got it removed!


  • Excellent product

    5 out of 5

    Do not leave home without it. Great for teething babies but also great for toddlers getting molars. Also great for older children and oldies with toothaches. Can also be used for numbing areas when little bad knocks to the skins are hurting little children.


  • A must have

    5 out of 5

    Bonjela pain relief teething gel was the one item that lived in my back pocket when my kids were teething. It provided instant relief for my little ones. It helped them sleep through the night when they were unsettled.


  • Best Teething Gel

    5 out of 5

    This teething gel is the best and only one for my kids because it works within a minute. My children started teething at a very young age and using a very small amount of this worked. I have continued to use this product and will do so for as long as they need it. Highly recommend.


  • Natural options are far better

    2.5 out of 5

    I ised this on my son twice before realising what was in it then switched to a natural powder option which works instantly. I’m much happier knowing he gets instant relief without any nasties


  • Even Grandma loves it

    5 out of 5

    I know sounds silly but Grandma lost a lot of weight when she was a bit ill and her dentures didn’t fit properly and were giving her grief so I recommended this as my number two has very tough gums and lived on it for many many months and it worked a treat for him and her. She loves it and it saved her thousands in denture repairs.


  • Sweet relief

    4.5 out of 5

    Bonjella is really effective for our children when teething. They don’t mind the taste, and it is fairly long lasting. Definitely one of those items we wouldn’t dare not have in the medicine cupboard.


  • Helps babies alot

    5 out of 5

    My mum used this on me when I was a baby, and now Im using it on my son. It works quickly to relieve his pain due to his teething. It does contain alcohol though, so you need to be wary of how much and how often you use it. It’s a small tube but goes a long way.


  • Excellent for teething babies

    3.5 out of 5

    This has to be my favourite teething gel ,it works straight away and the babies didn’t seem to mind it, it was an absolute lifesaver the whole time the kids were teething


  • Gives great relief from teething!

    4.5 out of 5

    My kids have been awful teethers (particularly my eldest) and bonjela was a lifesaver during those hard months. They don’t mind the taste and have no dramas with me putting it on.


  • Actual lifesaver.

    5 out of 5

    My older children didn’t really have a problem teething but my poor mr. 2 has been in so much pain it breaks my heart. This always fixes him right up and gives him a break from those damn molars.


  • Great teething gel!

    5 out of 5

    Bonjela teething gel has been around forever. I used it with both of my kids and it saved me many a sleepless night. Highly recommend to all mums out there with babies.


  • Love Bonjela to ease the pain of mouth ulcers

    5 out of 5

    Love Bonjela to ease the pain of mouth ulcers. I quite often get large mouth ulcers and they are very painful. I rub a little Bonjela on them, it initially stings but then eases the pain within a minute.


  • Saves my sanity

    4.5 out of 5

    It is our salvation, especially overnight when otherwise the whole household is awake with the older kids getting up too.Within minutes from a distressed baby I have a happy one.


  • Also a wonderful pain reliever for adults.

    4.5 out of 5

    I occasionally get painful ulcers in my mouth and Bonjela is excellent for easing the stinging pain.


  • What's happened ????

    3.5 out of 5

    This product was a godsend for us when our little 10mo was in her first 6-7 months of life (very early teether) but then all of a sudden she refused to let me use ut in her mouth and screams ???? i know the packaging changed, hope the recipe didn’t


  • Brilliant!

    5 out of 5

    My 9mo has 5 teeth and Bonjela has been our saving grace through all of them. Its perfect for when your bub is in enough discomfort to be irritable and to be able to sleep, but not enough pain to use panadol or nurofen.


  • The only thing I use for teething!

    4 out of 5

    This product works like magic. When baby wakes up crying in the night just some of this on the gums and a quick cuddle and they will go right back to sleep. My 2 kids have both seemed to like the taste and it seems to be a quality product my only complaint is the price compared to the size of the tube.


  • Magic product

    5 out of 5

    We can not live without this in our house. I been saferd with my son’s tooth but with this product I can see thank you very much I m so happy with it


  • Only brand we use

    5 out of 5

    Ella suffered from really bad teething pain. I tried all the rings, ice and natural products but Bonjella was the only thing that helped my girl. I myself now use the adult one if ever I need to


  • Great for adults yoo

    5 out of 5

    Loved it


  • Classic!

    5 out of 5

    I love this little beauty. It lives in my handbag permanently for those times that my little one has teething pain, or my girls and I have any ulcers. It is great in the middle of the night to take the edge of pain!


  • Staple Staple Staple

    5 out of 5

    We can not live without this in our house. Two teething children makes it a necessity. I don’t know if it works as they still whinge and bite, but I feel better putting it on them.


  • Love Bonjela

    4.5 out of 5

    Bonjela is another product that’s been around a long time – and that’s because it works! I used it with all 3 kids for teething. I think the taste was ok, at the beginning they didn’t like having it put on and would scream but once they got used to the process it was so much better. It reduced their teething pain almost immediately. Great for middle of the night inconsolable bubs. I also found it great as they were toddlers for ulcers or when they bit their tounge. The numbing factor worked well. The product is thick but not too thick – enough to put on gums and not be runny and get spat out. Love it.


  • Excellant

    4.5 out of 5

    I found bonjella to be fantastic for fast relief from the pain that teething gives. Although the flavour was not tolerated well by my daughter


  • Recommend

    4 out of 5

    I am so glad I got this, my bub had 3 teeth come through at the same time and he was miserable. Great for numbing their swollen gums


  • Works well tastes bad

    4 out of 5

    I notice the difference very fast with this gel, however I wish there was a strawberry flavour like nurofen. My son tries to push my hand away as he hates the taste.


  • Love it!!

    4.5 out of 5

    Amazing fast relief for those awful teething pains at any age, especially when those sleepless nights attack and the fussy baby that seems incurable appears this is the stuff to reach for!!


  • Lifesaver

    5 out of 5

    My son has been teething since 4 months of age (currently 5 and a half months but still no teeth), when he gets grizzly with the red checks and fingers rubbing I put the bonjela on his gums and he settles right down, it is great for the quick relief and seeing him out of pain!
