This is by far my biggest beauty buy dissapointment. I have KP on my arms and thighs and after reading rave reviews for this product elsewhere i decided to give it a try. The truth is that it is extrimely hard to get rid of KP and there is no magic product for it yet. KP Duty turned out to be a very expensive try. The tube is really small and lasted me only 2 weeks. With KP you need constant hidration twice a day, so i ran out of the tube in less than 2 weeks. Besides the results were not stellar. Maybe if i were to use this product longer it would give better results, but it is very expensive and the same results may be achieved by other less expensive means.
This product works. I also received it as a sample from Sephora. I tried it on my hands when I first got it and then tossed it aside in the cabinet. But weeks later, some bumpy patches, or "chicken skin" appeared on my upper arms, so I thought to try the product on those areas. I noticed a difference that same day. In a couple of days, the dry patches were gone.
It's not remarkable as an everyday moisturizer, but it definitely does what it claims to do--it's great at clearing up problem areas and "chicken skin."
GUYS - YOU'VE GOTTA USE THIS WITH the KP Duty Exfoliating Scrub....that's the trick to seeing results...and, see my review on the scrub...it isn't an ordinary exfoliator (and I've tried MANY to get rid of my chicken skin)....That scrub was the ONLY exfoliator that really worked to give me smooth skin...my KP on my arms and lower legs is bad....This lotion, over time, works with the scrub to give smooth skin...I just wish this stuff was more natural (i..e, didn't contain paraben)...But, it's the only thing on the market that works for KP in my opinion...Scrub + KP lotion = definite results!
I was extremely disappointed with this product. I did not find it superior to other creams or lotions I have used on the KP on my arms. This product contains 10% urea. It is an elegant product as far as urea goes. It does not have an unpleasant odor or make the skin feel dry upon initial application. I just found it to be too heavy and greasy feeling and it did not deliver the results I expected, especially for the price. I am a big fan of several other DERMAdoctor products, but I do not recommend this one. If you are looking for a urea cream to try I recommend Nutraplus. I find it to be more effective and it is much much less expensive.
**update**If you are a fan of this product, I would like to make you aware of a product called Atrac-tain. It is a urea/glycolic acid product like KP Duty. It is prescribed quite a bit by podiatrists for dry, cracked feet. DERMAdoctor will not say the exact percentage of glycolic acid in KP Duty, but the urea concentration is 10%. The percentage in Atrac-tain is the same. It costs about $12.50 for a 5oz tube.
Didn't buy this product. Got it at Sephora as part of the Beauty Insider program when you spend X amount of dollars.
This surely is something I WOULDN'T buy. Don't know what it's supposed to do but to me it feels like overpriced Vaseline.
Maybe some of the other products are better but this one gives me a negative image of the Dermdoctor line.
Happy New Year All!!
I debating buying this product for months! I'm glad I finally decided to just suck it up and get it. I love it. It's really great for my KP on the back of my arms. It's helping fade the scars from where I have *ugg* picked at the little bumps. My skin feels much smoother now. I figured that if it didn't work for my arms...I would just use it for my hands and feet. Either way...it's a win/win product!
I have no idea what KP is, but I pulled off my skin with Nair Hair Removal Strips. The skin looked like a lizards. I put on this cream and it looks beautiful. Now, my normal skin is beautiful, so any cream that would make peeling skin look pretty has got to be a good product.
Edited to add: I had to return the product; it is too greasy. continued >>
I have severe KP on my lower legs (with discoloration), and when I heard about KP Duty from Sephora, I immediately ordered it with very high hopes. Result: no change. Well, my skin did feel softer for sure, but the cream did absolutely nothing for the redness and discoloration. I will not buy this product again. If you have severe KP, I'd recommend either Neutrogena's bump minimizing lotion or NeoStrata's body lotion with glycolic acid (what I'm using now). Don't waste your money on this product, which is absolutely nothing more than a regular moisturizer.
I have KP on my upper arms and this really helps it. It hasn't got completely rid of it, but it's helped a lot. This is a product you HAVE to use twice a day, every day to get results. If you aren't the type of person that can keep up, don't waste your money. This is, in my opinion, very expensive and you need to use a large amount. If you really like this I would recommend getting the "double duty" because it's a two full-size tube set and will save you a few bucks. This is also great for really dry, flaky skin.
What a waste of money! It's $36 for 4 ounces that barelly lasts 2 weeks with regular use. Also, it was very greasy. Every time I applied it I had to wash my hands a few times to get the feeling to go away. I'll stick with my scrubs to keep the kp under control.
