you are not suppose to "rub" Androgel into the skin...just apply it and let it air-dry. (5 minutes)
Also...you are supposed to apply it on your shoulders/upper arms first then any excess put on the sides of your abdomen.
Now with Testim ...you would rub it into the skin until it disappears.
I've been using both types for over 2 years...but now I'm strictly using IM shots of Test Cyp.
Hope this helps and good luck.
