My Thoughts
Zims carries a lot of different products, but I am so glad I chose the two that I did. I love how the gel cools and feels like it instantly relieves my sore muscles. It is perfect for after jogging. The Max Freeze is great. It is not just for feet, despite being more geared towards them. You can even use it on or near your face if need be (spray onto hands first!) Neither product left my skin greasy, it didn't stain anything after wearing clothes after applying, and the smell vanished. I used to be too embarrassed to go out in public, and my friends always commented. 

I just had the chance to try Zims when I needed it most. I pulled a muscle in my upper back/left shoulder area. It was terrible. I still feel some pain, but not nearly as bad as a few days ago. The Arnica Max Gel worked great, but it was in a hard to reach spot, leaving me to ask someone else to help me out. Now the Max Freeze spray works wonders. I know mine was specialized for feet, but I tried it anyway. It works instantly. Thanks to Zims I got to enjoy an activity filled birthday without suffering from shoulder pain.
