Yellow is our strongest deep numb, perfect for tattoos and piercings.
Gold or red are our best fast numbs – ideal for aesthetic procedures
99% of the sites that are selling greens are selling fakes. This is because the authentic green is 7% lidocaine making it illegal to be sold. This high percentage of lidocaine can be dangerous to use. We sell the yellow which is the same strength as green but made with 3 different numbing agents, instead of just the 1.
Make sure the site has extensive and genuine customer reviews! Also never buy from ebay, amazon or wish or places similar. Make sure the seller has a certified certificate and an authentic hologram on the box. If you head to our instagram you’ll see a highlight showing how to spot a fake hologram.
No. Our cream is water based – not oil based – so the ink, tattoo and healing process wont be affected at all!
We would always advise to tell your artist but its not 100% essential. Always tell your practitioner if using the cream for anything other than a tattoo or piercing.
If the cream has been opened please discard after 2 weeks as once the cream has been exposed to air it will not be as effective to numb.
The tubes are 10g and need to be applied nice and thick! One full tube would only be enough to cover a full forearm.
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!
When the initial numbness sets in, the skin should go more pale if anything. But when the feeling comes back its totally normal for the skin to turn redish as the blood vessels widen back up.
NO! The cream is too strong to be used on the eyelids.
The deep numb can last up to 3-5 hours
The fast numb can last up to 1-3 hours
We would not recommend leaving the cream on longer than 2 hours. The cream will begin the wearing off process after 2 hours
You might not have the full effective numbing experience, we recommend always leaving the cream on for the recommended application time.
