In brief: Yes - spray & rub
Yes, if you spray and rub it in.
The main trouble with the spray is that there is a risk of breathing in the aerosolized particles. These chemicals are not meant or safe to use internally. So when spraying, be sure not to spray directly onto face.

In brief: Yes but more often
Certsinky but it may need to be applied more often depending on your activity level, sweating pattern, and bathing.
