If you keep the lid on nice and tight it will last months after opened.

The tubes are 10g and need to be applied nice and thick! One full tube would only be enough to cover a full forearm for 3-5 hours.

Absolutely! The numb is only skin deep and wont affect any of your limbs deeper than the skin.

All people are different and have different levels of numbing but as long as you apply correctly it should fully numb the area for the majority of people. See the review section for more information!

Sandwich bags taped with masking tape work well too. If you cant use anything like that you may find it doesn’t fully numb the area or the numb doesn’t last as long as it should.

This is completely normal! When the cream is exposed to the air it changes colour over time. As long as its not dryed out it should still work just fine!

Absolutely, some people prefer to leave it on for 1.5-2 hours as that’s what suits their skin type. But its all trial an error with what works best for you.

You might not have the full effective numbing experience, we fully advise that the cream should be on for at least an hour – no matter how numb the area may feel prior to that.

The beauty of the yellow tube is that its amazing for all skin types. Although we absolutely recommend a patch test just to be safe.
