Yes, definitely works, but if you put your hand on the insulation it's warm. Two layers of this stuff would be a whole lot better than one.

an air gap is the best insulation,which essentially is what that silver stuff is but just does it less efficiently

i saw a house with a 3 inch air gap and the inner surface was cool

Rockwool is cheap and efficient.
