Interestingly enough, the ink in these pens will actually reappear when the temperature reaches below -10 C (under 14 Fahrenheit). A freezer is sufficiently cold enough to make the ink start to reappear, you can watch a video on how it works here. It is like a magic pen for adults!
Because the ink in this pen is thermo sensitive, we do not advise for it to be left in hot cars, used for mailing, or subjected to a condition that exposes it to a lot of friction.
The video below demonstrates how well these pens erase:

I may be picking nits,...
I may be picking nits, but I was a teensy bit disappointed in this. The color appears a little more saturated than the photo would tell you, but I like that. What I'm disappointed in is the erasing ability. I've tried the US FriXion gel pens and found those to write and erase beautifully, but this must be a heavier ink or something because it, in my opinion, requires more force to erase, seems to "chafe" the paper a little, and does not always erase 100% (90%, maybe). One thing I noted is that the eraser is on the cap, which is obviously better for posting. However, I doubt I will reorder this specific product.
