Magicool is Verycool
Member Name: Enkaypee
Advantages: It really does work and cools you down instantly
Disadvantages: Is less effective on very hot days
As someone who has tremendous difficulty regulating my body temperature, I was in desperate need of finding something to help me cool off during hot summer days, so having seen the adverts on TV, I decided to give Magicool a try. And, I'm pleased to say, it works!
It's really easy to use, as when you're feeling warm just hold the can around 25cm (10in) away from your skin and spray. I don't know how it works and was a little dubious beforehand, but it does what it says on the tin as the spray is instantly cooling. Plus, a bonus is that you can use it on your face (eyes closed, of course), without running the risk of causing any irritation. It smells really nice and refreshing - it's a difficult smell to try and describe but it's pleasant and summery and doesn't smell of chemicals or anything nasty. It can be used for not only cooling yourself down, but any number of other things; your car, your children, your pets, anything that's hot really!
The can it comes in is quite large and cumbersome, but at least you can be sure there's a lot in it and it'll last a long time! As far as I'm aware you can get slightly smaller cans as well, but it'd be an improvement if they made even smaller, travel sized cans which you could just slip into a pocket or bag to carry around with you. If anyone knows if they do in fact make these and I've just missed them, please let me know!
One downside is that it seems to me that on really hot days the cooling effect does not last. It is really refreshing, but after a few seconds it all seems to have evaporated off and you're either left to sit there and boil, or you have to keep reapplying it every few seconds. Not great.
Having said this, the good old British weather only gives us about three really hot days a year, so it's not so much of a big deal. Overall the spray does work really well, but if only they made it in much smaller sized cans, it would be my number one item in summer for cooling down on the go.
Summary: A must-have for summer as it is such a quick and easy way to cool down
