Soothanol X2 is a liquid formula that includes 11 natural ingredients combined to produce fast and effective pain relief in sore joints and muscles, according to NorthStar Nutritionals. As of November 2015, Consumer Health Digest features a review of the product that gives it an expert rating of just over three stars out of a possible five. The author notes that though many reviewers experience relief, the product has no clinical evidence to support its efficacy. He elaborates that it seems effective for some types of pain, but that in his opinion, there are better options available.
Additionally, other reviewers on Amazon.com fall somewhere in the middle. They point out that the product is as effective as other over-the-counter pain relief topicals in that it's mildly effective, but it has an offensive smell. Some add that even though they experience relief, they would choose an alternative product for their next purchase.
