One of the Most Effective Moisturizers - Zim's Max Crack Creme

*PR samples & Bought by me

When I skimmed the email for Zim’s Max Crack Creme, I thought about 2 things: glue and Breaking Bad.  I know it wasn't a good association or maybe it was because it caught my attention.  It was enough for me to become a bit curious about an all-natural herbal cream that was first created 60 years ago.

When my samples arrived, I noticed 3 major points with Zim's Crack Creme:

  • Very simple ingredients listing
  • No silicones 
  • No petrolatum or mineral oil

Could a 60 year old herbal formula really moisturize dry skin, or for that matter dry winter skin in this modern age?  I was very skeptical!! But after first use, my skepticism disappeared and I went looking for the brand at 3 of my CVS stores nearby to buy more!!  (More on this later.)


Zim’s Max Crack Creme Original Liquid Formula ($6.99 for 2 oz.) is the original formulation.  I was surprised by it because I expected some lotion type product but it turned out to be an oil, almost like a serum. In fact, if Zim's repackaged this in some fancy glass dropper bottle and placed it in a department store, it could probably sell for 20x's its price!

First, there is a slight scent like licorice or cloves which is from the myrcia (bayberry) oil. It does disappear within a few minutes.  The bottle is only 2 oz. and it sounds small but it only takes about two or three drops to moisturize hands, feet, or face.  

The Liquid

The liquid looks like an oil which it is but once applied it provides moisture without feeling greasy at all. This is done without any silicone oils of any type!  You might notice the SD Alcohol; this is beneficial to formulation.  If you think this will dry out your skin, it won't.  

The way this product feels when it moisturizes the skin made me think, it can be used not only as a skin care product but as a product to mix with makeup.

Makeup Experiment 1

I started experimenting and this is one way to use the Zim's Max Crack Creme Liquid Formula. I used it as a mixing medium for my cake foundations.  You could also mix it with your foundations to thin them out if you find them too thick (example: RCMA). Not only does this product turn cake color makeup into moisturizing color, it also acts as a sealant because of its formulation.

I also used it to mix with my mineral makeup powder to change it into a concealer or liquid foundation.

Makeup Experiment 2 - Mix with Mineral Makeup

What I also found intriguing about this product is not only is it oil-based, it is also water soluble. You can mix this with water without any problem! Why do this? You can use it diluted and put it in a spray bottle to set your makeup.

Mix with Water

I am sure there are other uses for this excellent moisturizer but don't forget it does moisturize without feeling heavy, greasy, or slippery.

For the non-liquid version, there is the Zim’s Max Crack Creme Creamy Daytime Formula ($6.99 for 2.7 oz) .

Zim's Crack Creme

Just like the liquid lotion, this one does not contain any silicones and it has the addition of aloe.

Zim's Creamy Creme

This one is the most lightweight yet effective moisturizing cream I have used during the winter months.  I can actually use this as a facial moisturizer and skip the primer. Of course, it works great on any other part of the body where it might be more dry like the hands and feet, but as a facial moisturizer this one works wonders. Remember, I will repeat, there is NO SILICONE!!!

Anyway, I was so impressed by this brand that I actually tried to find the liquid or at least the large pump of the Zim's Crack Cream at CVS.  I went to 3 different stores and didn't find any crack. 😢  (A suggestion to Zim's, you need to put some red labeling to differentiate your product line from the other brands.  Do you know how many skin care brands use blue and white?  Too many!)

However, I did find Zim's Max Freeze Gel ($9.99 - I bought this) and figured I have aching muscles and if the moisturizers felt good, then the mentholated gel would probably help the aching parts of me!

Zim's Max Freeze Gel

After buying this, I will no longer buy the other icy brand I was using. I like Zim's Max Freeze much more, again it does NOT contain silicone.  The gel is much more moisturizing and allows the menthol to last longer.  Not only is there the usual active menthol, it also contains tea tree oil, aloe, and camphor.

I will continue to search other brick and mortar stores for the Zim's line.  I love 💖 the Zim's Crack Creme Liquid!  A very effective moisturizer and a versatile product!
If these three products work as well as they do, I am guessing the other products from the Zim's line are just as effective!

Go check them out and you will see they have many more products worth trying!
