My Flexiseq Gel Review – Is It Really Good?
It’s time for my Flexiseq Gel review – because I heard so many praises about this product.
In fact – it’s so famous because it’s different:
- has a unique formula
- not based on pain relieving substances
- uses a new technology
So Flexiseq doesn’t have anything in common with most pain relieving creams. Except the fact that it’s a gel.
But is it any good? Does it work for real – or it’s just this hype around it?
Well – I tried out Flexiseq myself, so I will show you below what’s the truth behind it.
Note: This review is based on my experience + opinion on Flexiseq.
So Let’s Get To The Review
Full Name: Flexiseq
Versions: There are 2 different forms:
- Flexiseq Osteoarthritis (designed for cartilage problems)
- Flexiseq Active (lighter formula, so it’s better for milder pain)
However – they both do about the same thing, so you can use any.
Best Actual Price: Around $18
Where To Buy It From: Amazon or Ebay
If you live in UK, you can also find it on the official website – but it’s a lot pricier (compared to Amazon UK).
- lubricate and protect the joints
- relieve pain and stiffness
- improve joint function
However – it’s just a topical get, so I doubt it could actually treat the joints (only pills can do that).
My Rating: 8 out of 10 – It’s a good product, but too expensive for me.
Worth Buying?: Only if you afford it. I’m personally satisfied with it:
- original formula
- works pretty well for pain/flexibility
- many positive reviews
The only problem is that it’s a topical reliever – and these products can’t treat arthritis alone.
So I mostly recommend it if you also use a quality supplement additionally.
What I Liked About It
- Unique formula/mechanism of action
- Doesn’t contain any active ingredients
- No smell or color
- You only need to apply it 2 times per day
- Works really well for pain, inflammation and mobility
- Many positive reviews
- You can find it in several retailers
What I Didn’t Like About It
- Leaves your skin sticky
- The effect only lasts for 4-5 hours (in my case)
- Doesn’t treat the real cause behind the pain
- Very little quantity per tube (1.7 oz)
- Expensive overall
#1 – Ingredients (9 out of 10)
That’s what makes Flexiseq so special:
- Doesn’t contain any common ingredients.
- Works in a physical way.
- Free of any side effects.
So basically – there are no ingredients in this gel. That’s why I can’t analyze anything here (as I usually do).
However, let’s take a quick look at Flexiseq’s formula.
1. The Formula
As I said, Flexiseq doesn’t work like most pain relieving creams. Instead:
- it’s made of oily droplets called “Sequessome”
- these droplets penetrate the skin to the joints
- once they get there, they start building a lubricating layer around cartilage
- that’s how flexibility improves withing minutes
So Flexiseq’s formula is surely unique. As it claims – it works in a mechanical way (not medical).
I personally don’t know any cream/gel with these proprieties, so Flexiseq is surely amazing.
2. Real Evidence
A great thing about Flexiseq is that it has some studies behind.
Now – I couldn’t find many studies on Flexiseq itself, but I found some on the type of formula it uses (ketoprofen-free gel):
Besides, Flexiseq has a clinical trial going on at this point. 
So to me – that’s the best evidence that this formula isn’t a scam.
Very few joint products have studies behind and they’re still effective. So a product that has clinical evidence should be even more effective.
Flexiseq may have a different formula – but it’s surely a good one.
So compared to most arthritis creams, it surely looks way more promising.
#2 – Smell & Texture (8 out of 10)
Unlike most creams and gels, Flexiseq looks pretty good at this chapter too.
As I said – this product doesn’t contain any common ingredient (like menthol, camphor, etc.).
For this reason, it’s great if you’re sensitive to intense scents:
- doesn’t smell almost at all
- you can at most perceive a light fresh scent
However – I personally couldn’t feel any smell.
So if you’re looking for a topical product that doesn’t smell, Flexiseq is just perfect.
That’s not my favorite part about this gel:
- only starts working after it dries out
- it takes a long time until it penetrates the skin
- this can take about 20-30 minutes
- leaves the skin sticky afterwards
So even though it’s easy to apply, it takes a lot more time to work (compared to many creams).
That’s the biggest problem in terms of texture, if you ask me.
But other than that – Flexiseq looks pretty well. You only need to be patient while using it.
#3 – How To Apply It (9 out of 10)
Unlike most creams, Flexiseq has some clear instructions about how you should use it:
- Apply it twice daily (morning + evening).
- Depending on the area where you apply it, use an appropriate quantity.
- Spread the gel on the painful area.
- Let it dry for about 10 minutes (I say more).
- If it’s your knee hurting, apply it on the back and sides.
I also like that they recommend the quantity you need to use:
- for knee, shoulders, hips: as long as your index finger
- for ankle, wrists, fingers: as long as half your index finger
So in my opinion – Flexiseq is quite easy to use.
The only downside is that it takes a while until it soaks in completely (more than 10 minutes – at least in my case).
Also, washing your hands is a must – because it leaves your skin very sticky.
#4 – My Results (8 out of 10)
First of all – Flexiseq worked really well for a cream.
However – as it’s a topical reliever, I don’t consider it a long term treatment for joint pain (I will explain below why).
1. My Background
I was suffering from both rheumatoid and osteoarthritis (a secondary complication):
- my RA pain was the worst (hands + elbows)
- it was sometimes unbearable during rainy days
- I also had morning stiffness for about 1 hour daily
- I only had OA in my knees
- the pain wasn’t so bad, but I had very little flexibility
So basically – I had several types of pain.
If Flexiseq could relieve the pain, I was the best person to test it out.
I was convinced it normally helps – but would it also help my severe RA pain? It was time to find out.
2. How It Worked
As I said, I was quite satisfied with Flexiseq’s effect (for a cream, I mean):
- It took about 30 minutes until it started working.
- My pain would decrease considerably everywhere I applied the gel.
- In my hands, it would go from a 6 to about a 3.
- In my knees, it would decrease almost completely (from a 2 to 0).
- My knee flexibility also improved.
- However, my stiffness would still last about 30-40 minutes every morning.
- Besides, Flexiseq’s effect would only last about 4 hours.
- Afterwards, all the symptoms returned in the same intensity.
So basically – Flexiseq was really effective in terms of relieving pain/stiffness.
But the problem is that its effect was very short. In my case, it would never last more than 5 hours.
Sure enough, you can apply the gel again.
But the symptoms will always return. So that’s a major sign that Flexiseq is only a temporary reliever – not a long term treatment.
That’s the #1 reason why I wouldn’t recommend it alone.
If you want a real remedy, use a supplement first. You can also add Flexiseq – but the supplement should be a must (in my opinion).
Flexiseq does relieve the pain – and it does it pretty well.
However, it’s still a topical reliever. And that means it only works on the short term – which isn’t very useful for arthritis. 
So if you have a chronic pain, I recommend using a supplement – and only additionally, a pain relieving gel.
That if you want to treat the cause of the pain (not just mask the symptoms).
#5 – Other Opinions (7 out of 10)
I tried to check out some other reviews on Flexiseq – so that I could judge fairly.
And luckily, I could find plenty of real opinions (as far as I could tell).
Note: I only considered authentic reviews, not general ones.
1. What People Say
I will mention the most common praises/complaints I found about Flexiseq:
- Some people say it works from the first try.
- Other praise it for having no smell and side effects.
- A few say it made miracles for their stiff joints.
- Some other claim it worked, but it’s too expensive.
- Others say it didn’t work better than most creams.
- Some others say it works, but the quantity is very little.
Basically – my conclusion after reading these reviews is that Flexiseq works for more than 50% of the customers.
However, it runs out very fast (considering it’s less than 2 oz per bottle).
2. Biggest Complaints
Believe it or not – it wasn’t the effect.
As I said, most customers were satisfied with how Flexiseq worked. Obviously – not all, but a decent per cent.
However, most complaints were related to another aspect – quantity:
- Many people said it’s extremely little.
- Other claimed it would finish after using it 5 times.
- Some others said it was really pricey for this quantity.
To be honest – I pretty much agree.
My own bottle also ran out pretty fast – in less than 1 month, if I remember well.
So if you want to use Flexiseq for more than 1 month, I advise you to buy 2 tubes from the start.
#6 – Price (6 out of 10)
That’s probably the biggest downside of Flexiseq – it’s too expensive to afford on the long term.
I’m speaking for myself, but many people probably agree with me.
1. The Exact Price
At first sight – you might say that Flexiseq is actually affordable:
- costs about $18 per tube
- the price can be even lower in some retailers (about $15)
However – the secret is to look at its quantity.
You’re actually paying $18 for 50 g – which is less than 2 oz (1.7 to be exact).
Well, for this quantity, Flexiseq is indeed pricey.
I’m not claiming it’s a weak or ineffective product – on the contrary. But paying $18 for less than 2 oz seems way too much for me.
If you follow the instructions from the label, that quantity won’t be enough for 1 month.
So I personally couldn’t afford buying it constantly.
2. Competitors’ Price
I will try to compare Flexiseq with other pain relieving creams I tried:
- Flexiseq costs about $18 for 1.7 oz.
- Biofreeze costs around $12 for 4 oz.
- Australian Dream costs abour $29 for 4 oz.
- Blue Emu costs about $15 for 4 oz.
- Flexdermal costs around $30 for 4 oz.
- Joint Flex costs less than $16 for 4 oz.
Now – not all of these creams have amazing prices.
But all of them are more or less cheaper than Flexiseq (in terms of price/quantity).
So Flexiseq is surely not an affordable product.
That’s why I personally would think twice about buying it. (Especially when supplements have a much better effect and costs less).
Flexiseq is one of the priciest creams I personally tried (due to its low quantity).
So for these money – I would buy a supplement instead.
It has a much better effect and it treats both the cause and the problem (unlike topical products).
So I think it’s a lot more worth it than a temporary cream/gel.
#7 – Where To Find It (9 out of 10)
Fortunately, Flexiseq is available in several retailers.
Normally, it should only be available in the UK – because that’s where the official website ships to (ONLY).
But thanks you Amazon (and Ebay), you can now get it in the US as well.
So here are the top 3 retailers you can get Flexiseq from:
- The official website (only if you’re from UK)
Out of these – my top choice would be Amazon:
- free shipping in most cases
- best price overall
- products can be returned (in case there’s any problem with the package)
Ebay does have some lower prices – but it’s way more dangerous. Plus, you might have to pay the shipping fees.
Regarding the official website, I wouldn’t recommend it even if you live in the UK.
Flexiseq’s prices are far higher than on Amazon UK – so there’s no point paying more, if you ask me.
Therefore – I consider Amazon as the best choice for Flexiseq right now.
#8 – FAQs
Here I will try to answer the main questions you might have about Flexiseq.
Note: I might repeat something I already said, but it’s easier to spot here.
1. How often do you need to apply it?
According to the label – 2 times per day (morning and evening).
But from what I read, you can also apply it whenever the effect disappears. There’s no risk of overdosing.
2. How long lasts 1 tube?
That depends of how often you use it – there’s no clear dose.
Just keep in mind that 1 tube has 50 g (1.7 oz) – so it won’t last too long.
In my case, it was enough for about 3 weeks (I applied it twice per day).
3. Are there any side effects?
Absolutely not. Flexiseq uses a physical formula, not a medical one.
So since it doesn’t have any active ingredient, it can’t cause any secondary effect.
4. How fast should I notice an effect?
Normally – it should work from the first time you use it.
Just wait about 20-30 minutes until it dries and soaks in completely and then you should feel an improvement in your pain.
#9 – Final Conclusions
Coming up, I will try to sum up my opinion on Flexiseq in 3 ideas.
1. Unique Formula
I don’t know any cream that has the same mechanism as Flexiseq:
- no active ingredients
- based on special droplets that lubricate the joints
- no side effects
So at this chapter, it surely has an advantage.
2. Works Really Good
I tried it out myself and I was very satisfied with the results:
- works very fast
- decreases the pain considerably
- also improves flexibility
Besides, I found many positive reviews about it.
However – Flexiseq’s effect lasts very little (just like most creams do).
That’s why it’s not a proper treatment for arthritis – at least not alone.
3. Very Expensive
Even though it has a great formula, Flexiseq is still extremely pricey:
- costs about $18 per tube
- there are only 1.7 oz in each bottle
So it’s not expensive in terms of price. It’s expensive in terms of quantity/price.
That’s why I would think twice before buying it.
Instead of getting a temporary reliever – I would choose a supplement. It treats both the cause and the pain, on the long term.
My Verdict – Is Flexiseq Gel Worth Buying?
Short answer: If you afford it, yes. It’s one of the best topical relievers I tried:
- unique formula
- works pretty fast
- decreases any kind of pain considerably
- also effective for mobility
The biggest downside it that it’s extremely expensive for the quantity.
And just like any cream – its effect is only temporary.
So I would surely not recommend it as a lone treatment.
If you have arthritis or chronic pain, taking a supplement should be the #1 choice (out of alternative remedies – your medical treatment should be the very first).
You can also use a cream, but only as an additional treatment:
- they only hide the pain for a short while
- afterwards, the symptoms come back
- the real cause of the pain isn’t treated
So I do recommend Flexiseq, but only if you use an internal product besides.
For this reason – make sure you spend your money wisely and get the best thing for your problem.
