I've been sprayed with both Fox and Sabre. Neither had any effect on my eyes or mucus membranes. They were full double-Z facial sprays, not the "Let me squirt this on a q-tip and rub it on your skin under your eye" BS method that some people try to claim is the same as being sprayed...

After about 3-4 minutes, my skin was burning, but I had already subdued the "attacker" (training, mind you) so it was a moot point. 10 minutes in a hot shower relieved this to a certain point. About an hour or two after being sprayed, I suffered no effects aside from mild skin irritation.

Moral of the story; don't count on any spray to take someone out of the fight.
