The Radox Muscle Soak does a fantastic job at relieving the pain in your achy muscles after a long day, but some customers can't get past the smell and enjoy it.

Something to note, however, is that this isn't a feeling that everyone shares. There are some consumers who have no problem with the scent of the bath salts.

There are no size options for the purchase of the Radox Muscle Soak. The bath salts come in a box that carries about 400 grams of the product. You can purchase, online, packs that have more than one box if you are looking for a little more than the offered 400 grams.

Each bath takes about two handfuls of powder, but that size varies from person to person. That means that the number of baths you can get per box will depend on the person taking the bath.


There are a handful of ingredients in the Radox Muscle Soak so you can get the best product and greatest relief after your bath.

The soak contains Maris Sal, Aqua, Sodium Sesquicarbonate, Isopropyl Myristate, Propylene Glycol, Parfum, Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, Sodium Carbonate, Thymus Vulgaris (Thyme), Flower/Leaf Extract, Linalool, CI 42090 (chemical coloring), and CI 77007(mineral-derived blue coloring).

Of course, it is possible that the list of ingredients can be changed by the manufacturer at any time so if you want to know the actual ingredient content for your Radox Muscle Soak you should check out the packaging of your product.

Those are a lot of big-name and hard to pronounce ingredients. The bath salt isn't full of natural ingredients as some consumers might like. If you want an all-natural muscle soak or bath salt, then you might want to consider a different option.

There are quite a few customers who are not pleased with all the unnatural components of the Radox Muscle Soak. They stated that the blue dye and various types of powder used in the soak left them unimpressed.


When using the Radox Muscle Soak, you want to make sure that you are keeping it away from your eyes. The bath salts tend to be more powdery than some consumers like, but that means it can be blown around more easily. This will increase the risk of you getting the powdery substance into your eyes.

If the Radox Muscle Soak does happen to make contact with your eyes, Radox suggests that you should rinse them with cool and clean water to flush the salts from your eyes.

How to Use

At the end of the day, when you just want to slip into the warm water and relax, the last thing that you want to do is fiddle with your bath salts. The good news is, using Radox Muscle Soak is super easy, there is barely any inconvenience.

While you are running your bath water, you will take a generous amount of the salts (usually around two handfuls) and place them under the warm running water. You want to allow the salts time to dissolve fully before you step into the tub.

It is as easy as that. You just put the salts in the warm water until it dissolves and then step in and relax.


There aren't really any varieties of the original Radox Muscle Soak. There are, however, other similar products from Radox that can do the same things.

Radox offers other bath salts that can help you out. There is one called Muscle Relax (with a peppermint scent) and another named Detox (with an acai berry scent). Additionally, there are bath bombs available with properties to help you calm down and pamper yourself in a variety of scents.

There are also some other muscle soaks available from Radox. However, they come in liquid form instead of as a bath salt. They offer the Sage & Sea Minerals Muscle soak, as well as ones for stress relief (rosemary and eucalyptus), sleep easy (chamomile and jasmine), feel relaxed (lavender and waterlily), and muscle therapy (black pepper and ginseng).


When it comes to bath salts, consistency isn't as important to some people as it is to others. After all, you are going to be dissolving the substance into the water, so why does it really matter?

The consumers who are displeased with the consistency of the Radox Muscle Soak would say that it shows an inferior product. Since the salts are more powdered and refined, they aren't actually salts. These are the customers who expect to find bigger crystalline salts instead of a smaller and more powdered crystal.

There were a few reviewers who mused that the reason for the powdery composition is because of all the unnatural ingredients on the mixture. Since most of it isn't actually salt and a lot of the components are chemically made, it would make sense for it to be a powder.

On the other hand, there are customers who have no problem with the thin and powdery consistency. They believe that if the product works, then what does it matter? As long as the Radox Muscle Soak work and soothes your muscles, the consistency doesn't matter. You are dissolving the powder into the bathwater anyway, so you aren't actually feeling it when you're in the bath.


One of the bigger problems that customers have with the Radox Muscle Soak is that it turns their bathwater unnaturally blue. It can be a little uncomfortable stepping into bright blue water when it comes time to relax.

In the opinion of reviewers, there was no need to add the extra chemical to dye the Radox Muscle Soak this color of blue.


When compared to other muscle soaks on the market, the Radox Muscle Soak has a pretty reasonable price tag. You should be careful, however, when ordering online to make sure you are getting the correct product for a decent cost. There are vendors who are selling it at a higher price since it's not readily available for sale in the United States.

Although the Radox Muscle Soak has a decent price tag, some consumers don't consider it a good value. They believe all the unnatural additives and dyes make the product feel and appear cheaply made and not worth the cost.

Bottom Line

At the end of a long hard day, all you want to do is sit back and relax. Whether you spent the day on your feet at work or you pushed yourself hard at the gym, if you have sore muscles, the Radox Muscle Soak will become one of your best friends.

All you have to do is fill up your tub with warm water and add a couple of handfuls of the bath salts into your water. Once you dissolve the salts, then you can step in and enjoy the soothing feeling. Warm water alone is fantastic for achy muscles, but the addition of Radox Muscle Soak takes it to a whole new level.

The active ingredients, although not always natural, work to help soothe your sore muscles, helping give you a more comfortable feeling. You don't have to let a hardcore workout keep you down or take you out of the game for a day or two. Relax in a tub of Radox Muscle Soak, and you will feel refreshed and ready to go.

Some consumers are put off by the slight chemical smell and way the salts change your bath water to a weird, unnatural blue. There are concerns a handful of customers have experienced; however, not everyone shares these concerns. That said, it is worth noting these problems so you can make an informed decision about purchasing the Radox Muscle Soak.

All and all, a lot of consumers love the Radox Muscle Soak and sweat by it. There are some downfalls, although most products experience that. For the most part, however, customers can appreciate for what it is. There is no doubt that these bath salts do their intended job, and they do it well.
