KP Duty

No one likes to admit that they have some unheard-of skin condition. That’s why I never really made much of the red bumps that have flecked my upper arms for years. I just assumed I was weird and that there was nothing to be done. End of story. Until I bumped into the DERMADoctor display at Sephora a few months ago.

DermaDoctor's KP Duty DERMADoctor’s creator, Dr. Audrey Kunin, has been handing out non-prescription skincare remedies for years. She combines dermatological treatments with a non-threatening, cosmetics approach. Her best selling treatment? KP Duty, a dry-skin remedy that effectively treats keratosis pilaris, a.k.a. chicken skin, a.k.a weird red bumps on your upper arms. Go figure – I’m not a freak, but just one of many women who suffer from KP.

I’ll be honest and admit that I didn’t have very high hopes for KP Duty. Which is why I was blown away when, 4 days after applying the lotion to my upper arms for the first time, I noticed a significant reduction in redness. Within 2 weeks, my arms were smooth, with an even skintone I haven’t enjoyed since 1994. I’ve got the product’s high level of glycollic acid and urea (a humectant for moisturization) to thank for that. I’ve stopped using it daily, and just rub it onto my arms a couple times a week. For maintenance, I’ll be stocking up with Sephora’s KP “Double Duty” – 2 bottles of lotion for $67 (a $72 value).

  1. Thank you for posting this little review up! My little sister has been dealing with this condition for a while now, and the poor thing thought she was downright weird too. 🙂 I can’t wait to get this for her!

  2. Amlactin, which you can buy at, does the same thing at a fraction of the price — might be worth a try. Smells bad though.

  3. OMG! Both my sister and I had the same, weirdo problem. Red spot just at the wrists. Just figured it was super sensitive skin, let it go. I tried KP Duty, and my sister hasn’t. My little blemish is gone, not my sister’s. Though I have heard that Natura Bisse, with it’s cool dose of glyco, might do the trick as well. (But an expensive trick at that!)
