Review on Zim's Max-Freeze: An Unexpected Secret Weapon for Sores and Aches

Migraine Mood
I suffer from tension migraines regularly. I know a migraine is in my future when I have been stressed out and spent long hours studying at the computer.  During this past finals season, I had a really terrible migraine, but the CVS near my school only had Tylenol, and I'm a Motrin type of girl...Needless to say, the Tylenol was not cutting it because my head was still throbbing. To top it off, my shoulders felt tight from hunching over my computer, and carrying my boys who were both sick and in result more needy than usual.

I looked in my bag, again, to see if I had perhaps overlooked a bottle of Motrin that I always leave in my bag, but instead found a bottle of Zim's Max Freeze Roll-On I was sent as a press sample. I can't even tell you why it was in my bag -- honestly, I don't remember putting it in there, but if I could time travel and give myself a high-five for putting it in my bag, I would...considering I was a little skeptical of its abilities, and did not think that I would really need it.  Honestly, when I'm having a headache I am not reaching for something topical.

My shoulders were aching, so I thought I would give it a chance. Immediately, upon first roll I felt a huge surge of coldness on my shoulder. Freezing -- I am telling you! I have used IcyHot, Bengay, Tiger Balm, SalonPas, Vietnamese Eucalyptus oil, and no other topical pain relievers come close to the coldness you feel after applying Max-Freeze -- and it's really the coldness that numbs away the soreness and aches.

My favorite part about Zim's Max-Freeze is the roller applicator. When I apply the roller with pressure, I can really work on the knots in my shoulders. It's really handy when you can target, massage, and also "medicate" to a specific area that's sore.

I was also impressed by the non-greasy formula. Zim's is, a company aiming to stay natural, which I love. So, no parabens, synthetic fragrances, DEA, or petrolatum in this formula<3 <3 <3 It's main active ingredient is 3% Menthol. It is also packed with soothing aloe and powerful tea tree oil. As you may have read in my Trader Joe's Facial Cleaner Review or Neem Oil Mask review, tea tree oil is an anti-inflammatory, and so it is a natural and amazing ingredient for releasing sore muscles and joints.  

The formula is also long lasting! A few days after applying it at school, I applied the roller to my shoulders right before a shower. The entire shower my shoulder were freezing. So, it lasts quite a while and is water resistant -- which is great for gym junkies and those in water sports like swimmers.  

Law school has turned me into a sweater-wearing shoulder aching grandma....Thank goodness I gave I this little guy a chance. . I love this roller so much it will never leave my school bag...

As always, use in moderation, and before use, test a bit on a small area to see if you have an allergic reaction. 

 Zim's Max-Freeze Roll-on may be purchased on or for $9.99.
