Zim's Pain Relief Spray (Review and Giveaway)

Disclosure: We received a sample product to help facilitate the review.  All opinions stated are genuine and my own.

Zim's has been in business for over 60 years

My husband is a mailman, and that means he carries a lot of things all day long. Sometimes the packages are heavy, and every once in awhile he gets a pulled muscle. We've had the Zim's Max-Freeze in the house for a couple of weeks, and when hubby said his middle back hurt a bit, I told him to get the freeze.

I sprayed it on him, and it was cold (which made me laugh). It's okay though, you want cool relief when you've got a pull. It had a great spinning nozzle, which made the application a breeze. I'd much rather spray a pain relief than rub it on (like I have with other products in the past).  That being said, there is also a gel and a roll-on available, if you prefer to use either of those.

This product says there is a vanishing scent. We found you could smell it lightly and then the smell did disappear entirely. Later in the day though, hubby said he could smell it again. Nothing major, and certainly not bothersome, just noting it for the review.

Zim's Max-Freeze is formulated with naturally-based ingredients including organic Ilex, Aloe, Arnica, Vitamin E, and Tea Tree Oil.  It's not at all greasy and contains no harmful ingredients such as parabens, sulfates, or synthetic fragrance.

The product is recommended for ages 12 and up, and is intended to help relieve pain from sore muscles & muscle sprains; back, shoulder, and neck pain; and/or painful ankle, knee, hip, and elbow joints. Hubby said it worked just fine on the muscle pull in his back.

We like to keep something like this in the house, for 'just-in-case' moments. It's one of those products you don't really think about needing, but are oh so happy to have around when you need it.

Zim's, which was started over 60 years ago, actually offers a whole array of natural-based products that cover everything from cracked feet, to chapped lips, to dry hands, to sore muscles...and everything in between.

You can learn more about them by visiting their website.  You can also follow them on Facebook and/or Twitter.

One lucky winner gets a bottle of Zim's Max-Free to call their own.
US entrants only.

I hate pulled and/or sore muscles. They make movement difficult. I've not heard of this before. I'll give it a try.

Have a terrific day. ☺

I could definitely use this for my ankle and my shoulder both of which hurt mightily on occasion. I might even get an extra one for my Mom who is forever pulling muscles.

This looks really helpful for those "aches and pains" days. I visited their web site and the Zim's Advanced Crack Creme looks like something I could really use in the winter.

Scott said...

Wasn't familiar with this product at all. Might have to give it a shot for those sore muscle days.

Lesley said...

I've often wondered if this stuff works, I could use something like this. It would be nice if I could just spray something on instead of ingesting a pill. Thank you for sharing, I'll have to look into this further and pick some up.
