    I have no actual experience with this product. However, I have my doubts about it.

    My rationale is that IF it were actually effective, it would see wide-spread acceptance and use from Law Enforcement, esp. those who have to get OC'd as part of their training. (I know for DARN sure, that if it were effective and talked about within our LE Academy, I would have bought it and used it, for sure) OC is MEAN stuff.

    The departments I served with all issued the Aerko Freeze +P brand of OC/CS sprays. The only thing that helped with deminishing their effects was time and flowing air. I have not heard of anyone, at least in the LE community, state that these are effective.

    Cold air was the only thing that saved me, and later I used that face scrub stuff that exfoliates your pores since the OC spray seeps in there and the scrub helps draw it out.

    Don't waste your money. I've used a few brands. They all work well for the 5 seconds the product is actually applied. After that, the hell comes back. Not worth the money IMO

    Cold water, baby shampoo (helps get the oily residue off the skin and out of the eyes) , cool blowing air and time.

    The only thing that helped me was cold water, a fan, dish soap and time.

    At the academy they had a large tub full of cold water and a big fan, so that you could dunk your whole face in and then let the fan blow on you. The soap helped wash the stuff off of you.

    Yup, Wind, Baby shampoo, wash your head and face facing away from the Shower head..or else

    Although, ALOE VERA GEL did relieve some of the facial burn...Time is your friend.

    On the ambulance, I poke a few holes in a bottle of sterile water and pretend I'm having a water bottle fight with the patients face. Baby shampoo helps, but I don't carry it.


    As far as pepper spray is concerned... you're going to be suffering for a while, and every time you take a shower for the next few days. It's just temporary relief and getting most of it off of you and out of your hair than anything else.

    OH MY GOD. I was just sprayed for the first time about 40 minutes ago, and it was hands-down the worst experience of my life.

    Man, that's rough...! Here's hoping the agony subsides soon! Was this a part of police training?

    Yes... Minnesota requires a college degree in law enforcement/criminal justice and/or completion of a certificate program through a board-certified college + a two- or four-year degree in another field to be a police officer. I had a four-year degree in journalism and went back for 20 credits of academic classes and a 15-credit, 10-week skills program that is roughly analogous to most states' police academies. I thought that being tased was bad, but it was nothing compared to getting sprayed. I had about 10 seconds of functionality to draw my training weapon, arrest someone, secure my training weapon, and cuff them. Couldn't keep my eyes open and wanted to just curl up and rock back and forth for a while.

    I started helping other people recover and was wiping noses and drool out of mouths just to keep my mind off how much it burned. You have to get it dried out before it starts to go away, and the only thing that does that is time. An air conditioner vent is about the best you can do for it- takes some of the burn and helps it dry faster.
    Hakkaa päälle!
