Lessen pain during chemical peel

I have very sensitive skin (probably from using retinoids all the time) and I was wondering if anyone knows a way to lessen the pain from a chemical peel?
I have a low percentage lidocaine solution but since it's in a cream form and hard to wash off I dont want there to be a chemical reaction with the peel.

Get a tattoo numbing cream online somewhere. Occlude with plastic for a hour. Wash your face and let dry. Peel as you would normally. 

There should  be no reaction if you wash your face, and then use acetone - nail polish remover to clean the skin.

Spot test as your sensitive.
