I bought IOPE Bio Essence Intensive Conditioning a while ago, when my skin was in need of deep help and this was advised to me by one of the store workers, since it matched well with the line of products I was using at the time. I must say, the price set a knife through my heart, since I got it as soon as it came out I paid full price. And at first I did not see any difference, but after using it for a little over three full months I am finally ready to comment on this item.
From the brand:

How to use:
Apply as the first step of skin care after washing your face. Use a cotton to apply the product. (I would really always use a cotton, especially for oily skin types)
My Skin Type: Oily T, dry U, blemished, sensitive, and allergic.
IOPE Bio Essence Intensive Conditioning Review:
If you notice on the side of the bottle there is even a time counter, and it says to use it up in 4 weeks. It is not about the validity date, it is about how much you should expect to spend.
I don’t know how big the faces they tested it in were, but applying it generously and with a cotton pad gets me to use “one week” as a little over one month!
The bottle opening is quite simple. The whole is just big enough so that you can pour the product onto the cotton without causing any accidents.
And gladly the product is really incredibly liquid, just like water. This is about the amount of product I use each time–twice the amount I would use in other first step serums or essences.
Unfortunately there isn’t any way for me to show you before and after photos, since the product doesn’t change your skin right away, it is a long term process.
As I was using it in the beginning I just used it because “I already paid for it” and didn’t want to waste it. But as I use it on my daily routine I actually feel now that it feeds my skin with necessary nutrients and made my skin bright and less red.
This is my opinion of course. This product is not meant to hydrate, moisturize, or immediately treat your skin – it’s meant for long term treatment and caring.
Will I repurchase it? Most likely no. There are other first step serums I would like to use which are inexpensive. And my skin is not that damaged anymore. But boy am I glad I used it! My skin really needed it. And if it gets horrible again I will definitely get this one again.
