LOVE this. Definitely a staple for me. Exfoliates nicely and helps keep my blackheads at bay. It smells terrible and causes some redness immediately after application. I've been using it consistently for 2 and a half years, and have found nothing like it. For those with sensitive skin, the P50V or the P50W would work better.
I have several LORAC lipsticks, but my favorite by far is Meg. A lovely brownish neutral color. A tad drying, but not as bad as MAC. This color is a staple for me.
I like this exfoliating cleanser. It feels a little grainy (especially on my dry winter skin), so I add a bit of jojoba oil. This cleanser exfoliates gently and leaves my skin feeling clean. Don't really like the tube it comes in. It keeps toppling over in my medicine cabinet. But it's a nice cleanser. Probably not suited for extremely sensitive skin. I also don't use it every day. I alternate this with the Ellen Lange Mineral Cleanser.
Love this mask! Gives me a nice glow. I use it once or twice a week after I steam my face. Sometimes I'll leave it on all night. I always have a nice glow afterwards and my pores seem a bit smaller as well. Love this stuff. It calms and soothes my irritated skin.

While I like this toner, it does seem to be just glorified rose water. I bought the 50 ampules, and I must say, it wasn't worth it. I do like the product, but don't see any changes in my skin from using it.
I agree that when applied with a heavy hand, you look ghostly. But when applied correctly, this product really helps even out the redness. I had a makeover at the LM counter and she ran over to LORAC to get this product for me. She said nothing would cut the redness like this, and she was right. Love it. Have repurchased three times.
I have Palm Beach and Caffe Latte. Love the texture and the color of both. Palm beach paired with MAC's Oh Baby is a beautiful combo.
I'm combo/oily, and when I got this cream, my initial reaction was that it was way too thick and would break me out. But it's currently the only moisturizer I will use in the winter. I avoid putting it on my nose for fear of clogging pores, but I find that it calms my irritated cheeks and hydrates nicely. A little too thick, but a nice moisturizer nonetheless.
After all of the raves, I, too, expected something great from this product. I didn't feel like it exfoliated very well. It is incredibly gentle, but I didn't think it took away the dead skin cells very well. I'll stick with my HG -- Karin Herzog's mild scrub. Better exfoliation.
I love this serum -- except for the consistency and the price tag. It's a little runny but manageable. Has a nice light melon smell. Only C serum that really calms my red, irritated skin. I have noticed that some sun damage is decreasing. I use it every morning on entire face and around eyes and sun damaged areas at night. Will repurchase although it is expensive.
I love this. Have been using every morning for a year and have noticed a considerable improvement in blackheads along jawline. This product is really good for acne-prone skin. It doesn't smell that great and isn't moisturizing, but does help with acne.
I love this cleanser. Doesn't remove makeup very well, so I only use it in the morning. Very gentle on my sensitive skin.

Love this glycolic cleanser. Has cleared up stubborn acne on my chin. Not overly drying. Does sting a tad, but I have sensitive skin. I only use this at night since twice a day would be too harsh. Compared to the MD Formulations glycolic cleanser, I find this one more effective and less drying.
My holy grail. Will repurchase again and again. Love it even more than the much raved about Dermalogica Microfoliant. Super gentle -- even for my sensitive skin. Contains natural marble grains. I use twice a week and find that it leaves my skin very smooth.
