BareEase is one type of numbing cream used for waxing. BareEase was created by an anesthesiologist to dull the pain associated with waxing, and it is commonly used for bikini waxes.
BareEase is a safe numbing cream that contains the maximum amount of lidocaine permitted by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. The numbing cream is applied 30 to 45 minutes prior to waxing, and comes with a pair of pink latex panties to wear after applying the cream. The cream must be wiped off immediately before waxing, and the numbing effect lasts for up to 30 minutes after removing the cream.
