I was given a bottle of Limitless Lotion as part of a product review through the Chronic Illness Bloggers network. Although the product was a gift, all opinions in this Limitless Lotion review are my own, and I was in no way influenced by the company.
Anyone who’s read Fed Up with Fatigue for a while knows I’m a sucker for lotions and potions that promise pain relief, so any time I have the opportunity to try a new one, I am all over it. A few weeks ago, I was asked by the Chronic Illness Bloggers network to test out Limitless Lotion, a pain-relieving lotion developed by the makers of Liberty Lotion, a popular CBD-based lotion.
I use CBD (cannabidiol) products for pain relief every single day, but I know not everyone is comfortable with products derived from hemp or cannabis. Limitless Lotion is a cannabimimetic product containing willow bark extract, boswellia, arnica montana and other natural ingredients that work synergistically to relieve pain and inflammation. The lotion’s “water-based, transdermal absorption formula carries the active ingredients in Limitless Lotion deep into body tissues, delivering relief from pain and inflammation both on and below the surface,” reads the Limitless Lotion website description.
The main ingredient, willow bark extract, has been used as a healing remedy for thousands of years. During the time of Hippocrates (around 400 BC), people chewed on willow bark to reduce fever and inflammation. Willow bark contains salicin, which was used during the 1800s to develop aspirin. It continues to be used today as a treatment for osteoarthritis, headache and assorted inflammatory conditions.
Limitless Lotion has multiple uses: arthritis, fibromyalgia, muscle pain, headaches, scrapes, stings, bites, bruises, rashes, cramps, sciatica, chronic injury-related pain, rosacea, eczema, psoriasis, joint pain and more.
My Limitless Lotion review…
During my review period, I stopped using my usual CBD lotion and replaced it with Limitless Lotion. Because of Limitless’ ingredients, the lotion has a mild herbal scent. It’s very light and doesn’t linger. That’s a very good thing for people who are sensitive to fragrance like I am.
The lotion has a medium consistency. It’s not overly thick or watery, so it applies smoothly and was easily absorbed by my skin. I used it during the colder winter months, and it did a good job of keeping my skin hydrated.
I used the lotion after my shower every evening for several weeks. Unfortunately, I did not notice a reduction in pain. I did enjoy using the lotion, however, because of its formulation. I prefer using more natural products, and this definitely falls into that category. It’s a good alternative to more mainstream moisturizers that are loaded with chemicals.
I read on the Limitless Lotion website that it’s a good companion to Liberty Lotion. Limitless Lotion is formulated to have a more immediate impact on pain, while Liberty Lotion has more of a compounding effect and provides pain relief and reduced inflammation over time. I wish I could have combined the Liberty and Limitless lotions together because I think that might have led to a better outcome for pain relief.
In addition to Limitless Lotion and Liberty Lotion, the company offers other CBD-related products, including lip balms and tinctures. You can view all of their products here. There is an opportunity to try their products for free; just pay shipping!
