As we age, physiological and lifestyle factors such as our body’s ability to regulate its temperature, hormonal fluctuations, medications or treatments such as hormone therapy, chemotherapy, intense workouts and even anxiety can cause hot flashes, hot flushes or overheating.
Our Cooling Mist creates an immediate sensation of lowering your body's surface temperature, helping you feel instantly calmer, reducing redness and evaporating sweat for up to an hour after application. Formulated with the brand's proprietary Pause Complex, it also helps spark the body’s collagen production to help skin stay lifted, firm, hydrated and toned.

Absolutely. 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! We recommend spraying the mist on key pulse points (like back of the neck, wrists and chest) avoiding spraying near the eye area. To use on the face, spray the mist into your palms and lightly pat onto your face under or over make-up. You will most likely 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 and rinse the product off within 24 hours.
Yes, our cooling body mist has been clinically proven to deliver instant relief from hot flashes, night sweats and overheating while promoting a sense of calm.
In our clinical study, 97% of women said they still felt refreshed an hour after initial use.
We recommend 2 sprays to the back of the neck to start. The cooling effect is quite strong and intensifies over the first few minutes of use. Ultimately, you can use as much as you need. Prior to using, shake well. Hold 8-10 inches away and mist on pulse points such as the back of the neck, wrists, and chest until you feel relief.
The Cooling Mist has been shown to keep you cool for up to an hour after the initial application. Re-apply as needed. We recommend rinsing off the product after 24 hours.
No, the Cooling Mist will not stain clothing.
Each 2 fl oz bottle of our Pause Cooling Mist contains approximately 300 sprays per bottle.
Because of the importance of collagen for skin elasticity, tone and texture as we age, all Pause products contain our proprietary Pause Complex, designed to help spark the body’s production of collagen and improve skin density and hydration. The Cooling Mist formula also includes a Menthol derivative, False Daisy and Holy Basil Leaf Extract to help create a strong, long-lasting cooling sensation, calm and soothe the skin and also help kill bacteria that can lead to breakouts.
As with any skincare product, We recommend performing a patch test before incorporating any new product into your regimen: 1} Apply a small amount of the product onto a clean area of skin on the upper forearm, 2} Keep the area dry, 3} Rinse off after 24 hours. Using while in direct sunlight may cause irritation. Not recommended for skin compromised by severe dryness and rosacea or after skin treatments such as chemical peels and microdermabrasion. If any redness, burning, itching, blistering or irritation occurs, discontinue use.
No. The Cooling Mist can be used by anyone looking for relief from hot flashes, hot flushes, or overheating due to intense physical exercise or emotional causes.
The Pause 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.
As with most topical products, body chemistry impacts the efficacy of these products. For a small percent of the population, the Cooling Mist may not provide any relief or, in very rare cases, may even result in a feeling of warmth. Again, this is entirely related to body chemistry. We recommend performing a patch test: 1} Apply a small amount of the product onto a clean area of skin on the upper forearm, 2} Keep the area dry, 3} Rinse off after 24 hours. Because we want you to love your Pause products, if you do not experience a cooling sensation from using the cooling mist, please return it for a full refund.
Yes! All Pause products are vegan, Non-GMO, gluten-free, hormone-free, cruelty-free Leaping Bunny certified and made in the USA with Well-Aging® ingredients sourced from around the globe.
I love the cooling mist and this kit allows me to keep a small one with me at all times. I’ve had friends try it and everyone agrees it a miracle!
I learned about this product from the book, Hot and Bothered by Jancee Dunn (highly recommended). Gave it a try and so glad I did. Instantly works and love feeling the cooling effect especially on the back of my neck. I have already shared it with colleagues and they love it too. So very grateful for these products!
The cooling mist is the best product and I can’t live without it. I’ve recommended it to many friends who also love it!
This is the first product that has worked for me! It really cools you off. Only spray on back of neck and pulse points!
There is a peppermint kind of ingredient in this spray that is just too much on my face. It’s ok on my arms and chest but on my face it’s unpleasant. Won’t purchase again.
Hi Maria, you are correct - using the cooling mist on your face is not recommended due to the high level of active ingredients. Instead, we recommend using it as a body spray on the back of your neck, chest and pulse points. If you really need relief on your face, it's best to spray some of the mist into your hands and pat your hands onto your face, rather than spraying directly onto the face.
