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.

Limitless Lotion review | Fed Up with Fatigue

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!

  1. I use a cream called MyPainAway FIBRO cream- it’s homeopayhic with arnica. I have had good luck with this cream- it’s for fibromyalgia and neuropathy. I went through chemo three years ago so I suffer from both! I buy mine from Amazon.

  2. Donna, Love your blog! I have had Crohns disease for over 50 years, Fibromyalgia (originally diagnosed as Anklyosing Spondylitis), Gastroparisis, Degenerative Disc disease. After reading the blogs on your CBD studies, and it was just the motivation needed to try this new journey. CBD oil/tincture, edibles has been so effective for me. The chronic diarrhea that has been there is now normalized. After 50 years of it and all the myriads of drugs used, CBD seems to be helping and I’m not going around stoned like I was with Narcotics. I have not desire to be stoned, but well.
    As for CBD and pain relief of Fibromyalgia, I can awaken and put my feet on the floor without aching! I’m not waking up with a migraine every morning from my neck. I’m not fully pain free, but for the most part It’s gone. I still have bouts with it, but it’s nothing like it has been. Thank you for sharing your experience. Please continue.
    Donna, and others, (1) do you mix strains (THC/CBD)? (2) What are you using to control pain, diarrhea? I’m not a smoker, am trying “vaping” Harlequin (Sativa), CBD Shark (Indica), and Harle-Tsu (Sativa/Hybrid). What helps you without losing your focus and ability to work/perform each day.
    Thank you for any help. It’s a topic I’m interested in as I feel like I’m going this journey of finding relief without side affects of medicine.

      Hi Sue, for daytime use, I use a strain called Jet Fuel, which is a CBD dominant strain, so it doesn’t cause the high like THC dominant strains do. I generally vape that. Another option is to use CBD oil – there is no high at all using that. I use THC dominant strains for sleep – either by vaping or by adding some cooking hash to butter before going to bed.

    • Leesa says:

      To Sue: which CBD product are you using for pain and relief from diarrhea? Is it a medical marijuana prescription or something you can get online or by mail order? I’m looking for some pain relief from Fibro and I still want to drive a car and focus, so not interested in much THC, if any.

  3. Simone says:

    I am always trying lotions too and the less unnatural ingredients, the better. My first of this kind was HEMPTASTIC. I think I was disappointed (it was more than a year ago). I seem to do better with essential oils that absorb into the skin better. I use a Frankincense & Myrrh Neuropathy Rubbing Oil which is quite good when I have got really bad Restless Leg or nerve pain in my legs, especially when “herking” from the full or new moon (Chronic Lyme cycle). There was a local concoction that was made for me that had excellent results – made from devil’s club root, wild burdock, caribou leaf and other wild herbs that was also very good. It can be difficult to gather all the ingredients to make it.

  4. Susan Acevedo says:

    I use product called Willow Balm which is made in Tennessee. It’s made from Willow as the name says. it’s a good product of you can’t get anything else stronger. I prefer lidocaine cream because it is stronger.

  5. Sophie B Tramel says:

    I like the Aspercreme Lidocaine Patch. Salon Pas makes one as well, the two brands look identical. My worst area of pain is my neck, so it is awkward to apply the patch, & it won’t stay in place for 8-12 hours, but it really helps calm a bad flare up. They advertise that regular use will help desensitize the pain receptors, but i haven’t used them that consistently. Also, I have very sensitive skin, and am also very sensitive to scents, & these pads cause no problems in either area.

    • Gary Bryer says:

      My family uses Blu Emu brand ointment, for pain from
      Fibromyalgia, osteoarthritis, chronic fatigue, pain. The ointment works well relieving pain. I have tried other brands that contain some blu emu, but the only one
      That works for us is the Blu Emu brand.

      Also pain patches with lidocaine 5%, are also effective.

      Have you tried marijuana to help with pain, and/or other symptoms?

      Gary

      • Greetings to all the Fibro Sufferers, I am Judy and I have fibro all over my body and neuropathy as well. Recently the dr has increased my Gabapentin 800mg daily, Baclofen 10mg three times daily. Also Cymbalta 100mg twice daily. I also take Xarelto 15mg daily, wear compression hose 24/7, Lorazepam 1mg three daily, and Quetiapine ER 50mg daily. This is to treat the figro as well as deep depression and anxiety. None of these do anything for the fibro and very little with neuropathy. I have to say the fibro is the very worst. I cannot do any house chores, bending, moving my upper body from my torso. Both my hips and across my lower back feels like a large animal with hugh claws have them inserted in my hips and back and pulling down tearing the flesh off the bone. What helps is to sit down, doesn’t hurt me to sit, driving doesn’t hurt, getting out of my truck does. Now let me tell you this. I can go outside and crank my push lawn mower with a string and with my hands holding on the the bar I can mow until I give out without any back pain. Explain this. My house looks like I am a horder. I’m trying to get packed in order to move, relocate to East Texas. I am trying to get things in order. All my medical paperwork. But it gets so scattered and I lose my train of thought and I am one that “if you can’t do it right the first time, leave it alone until you can” type people. I have started over in different places so many times I get confused. Can anyone out there is this wonderful blog help me?? I am waiting to sign with a realtor but he can’t come in, my living room is a massive start of trails. I’ve got 74 full years of medical stuff. I think I need to throw anything away because I will be getting another new doctor….maybe. If I could get some relief or manage a way to concour my back in order to do my house hould chores, it would be wonderful. I can put up with the feet feeling like I am walking in mud or my toes are wet or the burning in the heels of my feet when I am asleep. I could use help in the house but I cannoot affort their prices and I know what they do charge is more in line for their time. Any help out there????
