The Aerogel (99.8% air) was great and exactly as expected! However! The packaging ALSO included an almost vaporous matter / non-matter that was actually 100% air!!!
I couldn't believe that a company would include such a valuable giveaway!
I breathed it in and enjoyed another minute of LIFE... FOR FREE!!! Would definitely buy again! In fact, i might order enough to keep me alive for years to come!
