Lorac Skincare is one of the product lines offered by Lorac, a cosmetics company whose makeup products are found in many department stores. Lorac’s skincare line consists of MakeupPREP Gentle Skin Resurfacer, ProtecTINT SPF 30 Oil-Free Tinted Moisturizer, Oil-Free Moisturizer and the AquaPRIME Oil-Free Makeup Primer.

All of the Lorac Skincare products can be purchased directly from the manufacturer’s website but only in the United States. The company offers a 30-day money-back guarantee on all of its products except those on sale. The website provides brief descriptions of each product and presents a full ingredient list along with application instructions. We like to see companies disclose their ingredients so that those with skin allergies or sensitivities can determine how the product might react with their skin. It also allows the consumer to assess whether the products contain any low-quality “fillers”.

Product Details

For this review, we will take a closer look at the Lorac Skincare AquaPRIME Oil-Free Makeup Primer as it claims to smooth fine lines and wrinkles. The ingredients per the website are: Aqua (water), acrylates C 10-30 alkyl acrylate crosspolymer, sodium hyaluronate, sodium dehydroacetate, polysorbate 20, triethanolamine, phenoxyethanol, methylisothiazolinone, and di-sodium EDTA. We feel that the most important ingredient in this formulation is the sodium hyaluronate, also known as hyaluronic acid (HA). HA is known to deeply penetrate skin and hold over 1,000 times its own weight in water, thereby hydrating the skin. However, to have the best impact on wrinkles and fine lines, HA should be paired up with other proven effective ingredients like Matrixyl 3000 or Argiriline, which work to stimulate the body’s own production of collagen and smooth wrinkles.

We are concerned about the inclusion of di-sodium EDTA in the Lorac Skincare formulation. This ingredient is used to help other ingredients penetrate the skin better. It is a known allergen and there is also some research to suggest that it may be harmful. Many higher-quality skin care products exclude it for this reason. Those who have skin allergies or sensitivities may want to exercise caution while using this product until you know exactly how it will react with your skin.

The Good

  • Available directly on the manufacturer’s website.
  • Contains hyaluronic acid.
  • Money-back guarantee offered on non-sale items.

The Bad

  • Contains a known allergen.
  • No product samples appear to be available.
  • Does not contain other proven-effective anti-wrinkle ingredients.
  • Not labeled as non-allergenic.

The Bottom Line

Lorac Skincare products may prove attractive to some customers. The inclusion of hyaluronic acid and the money-back guarantee both show that the company is focused on and confident in its products. However, we feel that there are other products on the market that have these features but also contain other powerful anti-wrinkle ingredients. Consumers may wish to investigate these other products before settling on this one.

Rejuval Skin Bottle

Top Anti-Aging Cream for 2014: Rejuval Skin

Editor's Review: 4.9 / 5.0

After looking at literally hundreds of wrinkle reduction and prevention treatments, Rejuval Skin is our top choice. This product offers customers a Risk-Free Trial, and makes sure to both repair and protect the skin without using harmful chemicals like paragons or fragrances. No other formula that we've seen takes such a holistic approach to skin care. Rejuval Skin contains the advanced scientifically proven ingredient Acetyl Hexapeptide-3, proven to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. When you factor in the trial offer, the potent formula, and the scientific studies posted on the official site, it's easy to see why Rejuval Skin is our top anti-aging pick. >> Read more about Rejuval Skin Go



Vivexin

(Optional- For Enhanced Results): Vivexin

Editor's Review: 4.6 / 5.0

We've reviewed thousands of anti-aging eye treatments, and we've never seen anything quite like this! Vivexin is an anti-aging, eye treatment formulated to lighten dark circles, lessen the appearance of bags under the eyes and minimize fine lines and crow's feet associated with premature skin aging. The three active ingredients in Vivexin - Haloxyl, Eyeliss and Matrixyl - are backed with clinical research and positive consumer testimonials. If that's not enough to convince consumers to try Vivexin, the company offers a 90-day money-back guarantee so consumers can see the changes in eye appearance with the option of returning the product if they are not convinced >> Read more about Vivexin Go
