Shoppers have called PRAI’s and M&S new beauty collection for menopausal and perimenopausal women a ‘game-changer’ – and some claim they’ve seen improvements in just one week.
PRAI Beauty and the High Street favorite have teamed up to create a line-up of five products called ‘MenoGlow, ‘which starts at £ 20, in an effort to actively break the taboos surrounding menopause and encourage women to talk.
And adult beauty fans across the country are going crazy for the range – which is designed to moisturize, cool, nourish and repair – with one even saying ‘my skin looks better after a week of use’.
‘I would highly recommend it to menopausal women who have had skin problems,’ wrote another, while a third called it, ‘Beautifully luxurious. This one delivers on every level. ‘
Sigret, left (before) and right (after) a week of using the Super Hydrating Sleep Creme pictured) says, ‘It’s been my skin saver, but a little bit goes a long way, I love it! When everything is going weird with your body during menopause, it’s reassuring to save your skin so you can show your face and don’t have to hide behind makeup ”
When we got to the comment section online, someone panned, ‘This is going to be a game changer,’ while another commented, ‘Excellent. Very cooling and great for menopause ‘(photo)
Princes starts from £ 20 for the MenoGlo Gentle Rebalancing Crème Cleanser and ranges up to £ 30 for the Ultra Rejuvenating Sleep Mask. Pictured, the range with five products
The hero in the collection is the Hot Flush Cool Fix Serum, £ 28, with others including the Collagen-Enhancing Cremegel Moisturizer£ 25; Super hydrating sleep cream£ 28; Ultra rejuvenating sleeping mask, £ 30 and Gentle repairing cream cleanser, £ 20.
According to the online description: ‘The products are powered by a unique M complex; a powerful blend of Cloudberry Seed Oil, Centella Asiatica and Syn-Coll – along with other key active ingredients in each product that moisturize the skin and help restore radiance. ‘
The range, launched earlier this month and available to buy in-store and online, claims to directly address the changes women will see to their skin – including massive collagen loss – up to 30% in the first five years after menopause – extreme dryness, hot flashes, and night sweats – among many others.
And it seems that many who have put the product to the test agree – some even share impressive before and after photos to show the differences in their skin.

Sigret, who tested the Super Hydrating Sleep Creme, said before applying the product, “My skin was beautiful before menopause and then it got all dry and full of little pimples and redness, it was itchy too.”
But after applying the product and noticing a difference after just a week, she commented, ‘After the first night I had used the cream, I saw that the skin was calmer and hydrated and no redness – it felt too so soft to the touch. It’s been my skin saver, but a little bit goes a long way, I love it!
“ When everything goes crazy with your body during menopause, it’s reassuring to save your skin so you can show your face and not have to hide behind makeup. ”
Elsewhere, another called it ‘brilliant’ and continued, ‘This works. I often get a red face and it doesn’t take it away completely, but it cools it down and takes away some of the redness, please make a handbag size. ‘

Another added: ‘After many years and wasting a lot of money trying to find products that would suit my hypersensitive menopausal skin, I decided to try this one. I can’t fault the scope in any way ‘, while a further comment commented:
‘This has been a game changer for me. This range is fantastic. My skin has improved, hydrated and feels the way it was.
Others responded to social ads saying, ‘I really need this in my life,’ while a second wrote, ‘I was doubtful seeing this, but the serum is the best stuff ever.’
A third admitted, “Even my husband noticed that my skin looked better.”

Annie Toker, MD of PRAI Beauty said, “As a pro-aging, targeted skincare brand for women 40 and older, we are very excited to launch a new but highly relevant category for our customers. The response so far has been exceptional!
Perimenopause and menopause is when women will experience the greatest difference in their skin color, due to hormonal imbalances and a drop in estrogen levels.
We’ve done a tremendous amount of customer research with PRAI Beauty and M&S customers and women called it ‘aging overnight’.
Not only did we want to create a full line of products to help improve skin during menopause, but also be leaders in putting the discussion about menopause in a more positive light, through the lens of skin care. ‘
