The discrete way to keep your cool at all times. Mist. Roll. Refill. Repeat.
Why is there such a large warning sticker on the cooling mist?
The Pause Hot Flash Cooling Mist is a very unique product with a high level of active ingredients. These ingredients are not harmful in any way but may cause stinging to the eyes. These active ingredients enable us to achieve a significant cooling effect. We opted to keep a high level of efficacy in exchange for potentially some discomfort to the eyes. For the best user experience, we recommend that you shield your eyes before use. Really, the optimal cooling is achieved when the mist is applied to the back of the neck and the wrist pulse points first followed by the face, neck, and chest area.
Is it normal to feel tingling when using the cooling mist?
Yes, most definitely. The product was formulated to create a strong cooling and tingling sensation when applied. We use high concentrations of key ingredients in our products to ensure effectiveness, so a little tingling is not a bad thing! You are most likely to feel the tingling around your nose, mouth, and eye area. Remember though, you really want to keep this away from your eyes as tingling by the eyes can turn to stinging and discomfort. The product is completely safe, but we already have enough discomfort from hot flashes…we don’t need any more if we can help it.
