This gets applied as a liquid yet dries so it forms a "film" over the skin.  
Not the same texture, but similar to wax or glue on your skin.  The barrier 
sticks to you.  The tape then sticks to the barrier and not to you.  

I don't have any problems with removing the tape, it just pulls off and the 
barrier get washed off with soap and water.
