I came across this word of formation twice, today, but I have no idea what it means exactly and I can't find it in the dict...Is this a kind of colloquial expression?

Note that the literal meaning of this is "without thinking" (the -zu form of 思う). The idea here is probably that if you can't help but do something, you do it automatically, i.e., without thinking about it.
