    Good Product

    Posted by Blair on 2019 Sep 3rd

    This product worked for about 20 min of my tattoo. I didn’t feel a thing but it did wear off fairly quick. I wrapped it up with Saran Wrap for an hour and a half prior to getting my tat. Next time I will keep it on there longer because I felt NOTHING when it was working!

    I have tried 3 other numbing creams before this and they were crap. I've had a tattoo and some areas hurt. Dr Numb sorted this right out. Brilliant.

    I used the product back in 2017 for a cover up and a start of a half sleeve. One bottle lasted me for my whole half sleeve. I’m work on the other half of my arm and need a new one. I will never get a tattoo done with DR. NUMB!!!

    I’m very pleased with this product!

    Posted by Katherine Smith on 2018 Nov 2nd

    I have tried quite a few different numbing cream for my tattoo treatments here in my shop. Dr. Numb is the only one I've used that actually numbs people up very well. Some of the others that I have used list their lidocaine percentage as 5% but do not work well. I’ve been extremely pleased with this product and will continue to buy it!

    Use of product

    Posted by Connie on 2018 Sep 25th

    I have Basal Cell Nevus Syndrome so I have numerous biopsies and surgeries. I used Dr. Numb on my chest and collar bone for a procedure and it did help with the injection pain. I then used it on my ear (shots in the ear are VERY painful) prior to a surgery and found that it worked amazingly!! I really didn't feel the pain of the injections. I'll definitely be using this going forward for all my skin cancer procedures.
