Zim's #MaxFreeze + Giveaway


I am always searching for new and better products to help me with my pain relief. I have a herniated disc in my lower back and I have had several surgeries including disc replacements in my neck. I rely on a combination of heating pads, topical formulas (like Zim's Max-Freeze), supplements, exercise and devices such as my acupuncture Bed of Nails to get through the work days and live a mostly normal life.

Zim's sent me their Max-Freeze Maximum Muscle and Joint Pain Relief Roll-on to try out. I own about 6-7 different brands of topical roll-on pain relief solutions, but I am always looking for a better one. Some are definitely better than others. How did Zim's compare?

Let's first talk about what Zim's Max-Freeze does and does not have:

It contains Organic Ilex, Aloe and Arnica, Vitamin E and Tea Tree Oil. The active ingredient is natural menthol 3.7%. 

It does not contain any NSAIDS (Aspirin, Ibuprofen, etc), Parabens, Synthetic Fragrance, Sulfates, Paraffins, DEA, Petrolatum, Mineral Oil. They also do NOT test on animals. 

The main reason that I wanted to try Zim's is that it boasts that it is greaseless and has a vanishing scent. I have used greaseless creams before, but never with a vanishing scent. I hate walking around smelling like a max strength cough drop. I think my Husband hates it even more. As I used Zim's I came to the conclusion that it not only has a vanishing scent, but the "cool heat" sensation vanishes after awhile too. You may not be sure if that is a good thing or not, but trust is. There is nothing worse than applying a solution in your back in the morning only to feel a weird sensation as you sweat later that day because you didn't have a shower after the application. Zim's takes care of the pain and then vanishes awhile later so that you can enjoy your day pain free. 

I also love how Zim's Max-Freeze has the cooling heat sensation without it being overwhelming. I have had another brand of roll-on actually burn my skin. That particular solution wouldn't even come off in the shower and I had to use prescription strength burn cream to soothe the inflamed skin. I know that this will not happen with Zim's. It seems to have the perfect amount of menthol to soothe my sore muscles without irritating the skin. 

I highly recommend Zim's Max-Freeze for all of your sore muscles and joints. It has been easing the pain on my lower back and neck with just a few seconds of application and a few minutes of menthol scent. Perfect.

One lucky reader will win a Zim's Max-Freeze Roll-On. Ends 3/03 at midnight.

I'm glad it helped you! I'm always nervous about pain relievers because when something hurts for me, I know it's time to step-back a notch. I've gotten hurt before not listening to my body! (Because it felt good at the time thanks to drugs lol...) I will have to look into this, thanks for sharing!

I sure wish I had this RIGHT NOW. I did something to my foot yesterday. I am for real, limping, cannot put my full weight on my right foot. It's not broken, I strained something in it. I wish I had something right now. I am glad I'm off work today or I'd be in trouble. I hope this subsides today.
