I am currently obsessed with clearing and whitening my skin. I went to The Amore, a store in Cerritos that carries Laneige, IOPE, and Sulwhasoo products. The Sales Associate at the store convinced me to try their IOPE skincare line to replace the Laneige products I have been using. Here is my review on the products I picked up that day.
-Whitegen RXC 100ppm contains 25.5% plant extracts.
-More water content in dry skin makes it look more transparent and shiny.
-Effective whitening ingredients prevent melanin over- generation and pigmentation.
-Contains whitlow-glass seed extracts, which remain white even under an intense sunlight, to help keep the skin clear and vital.
-Oil-water balance keeps the skin hydrated and soft, and creates the best environment for skin whitening.
The products I used:
IOPE Whitegen RXC Softner
IOPE Whitegen RXC Emulsion
IOPE Whitegen RXC Cream
Like every product we buy, we want to love it. At least I know I sure do, I want to love every product that I buy but, that doesn't always happen. My skin is easy to maintain I've never had acne, I have normal to dry skin, and I have no extreme scares or spots. I simply wanted to hydrate and whiten my skin just a little bit. I didn't have the best results with these products, they may not have been suitable for my skin but might still work for other people. My review is based only on my skin and skin type. Normal to Dry and Non Sensitive.
My face broke out. I don't normally break out from products, I don't have sensitive skin. After the first week of using these products I broke out ALL over my chin and it wouldn't stop, it was a losing battle. Every morning I woke up and there was more bumps. Now I have acne scares on my chin where I never had scars before. Not only did I break out with acne/pimples I started getting those little white bumps all over my face. I was freaking out. I didn't want to assume right away it was the IOPE so I took a break from these products. I cleaned my cellphone thinking that might be the problem, I changed my cleanser, washed all my makeup brushes, even threw away my non used sponges just in case. A week later after my acne cleared up I tried these products again, and guess what? Once again I broke out ALL over my chin! My skin has never been in worst shape, I'm very sad. I continued using these products hoping my skin would recover and get use to them, but they never did. I hate throwing products away but I finally gave up and threw them away.
I would not purchase these products again. I'm a little ticked off being that the SA at Amore told me these IOPE products were great and how everyone in her store uses IOPE. She also claimed IOPE was much better than Laneige. I know Laneige is not high end but Laneige never made me want to stay home with a bag over my face either. Everyones skin is different, so you must determine what is the best for your skin depending on texture and type, just because these didn't work for me doesn't mean they won't work for someone who has different type of skin.
