Menopause & Skincare by Stratum C


Did you know that skin going through the menopause‬ needs extra special TLC‬ and lots of ❤️❤️ . ??

I’ve been trialling the ‎StratumC‬ specialist skincare‬ regime created especially for women going through and having gone through the Menopause. To say I am in love‬ with the range is a bit of an understatement!

After Week Two of using my ‪Formelab‬ specialist skincare‬ range my skin really does feel different. I will tell you more a little later, but in the meantime here is more on the range and why it is a must try if you’re a woman like me that was put through a surgical menopause or are in your 40’s or 50’s going through the change.

Stratum C uses a novel combination of 6 peptides (including Matrixyl) to replenish lost collagen and reduce existing wrinkles. Concentration of these peptides is crucial as clinical research shows that anything below 2% is ineffective. Stratum C uses the highest concentration (up to 12 times that of high street brands) which is proven to stimulate the skin to nearly double collagen production, leaving your face looking plumper, radiant and protected against wrinkle formation.

A revolutionary ultra-light preservative system protects skin from harmful chemicals. Stratum C contains no parabens, EDTA, MI, phthalates or formaldehydes which damage menopausal skin. No synthetic perfumes or colours are used in any of the products which does result in a shorter shelf life. Most products have to be used within 6 months of opening (rather than the usual 12)  which is a small compromise for healthy skin.

So,now you that you know more about the Brand, let’s talk about the products that I tested.


Stratum C Menopause Repair Serum £49serum

A highly effective intense wrinkle reducing multi-peptide serum for use on existing wrinkles combined with high levels of Hyaluronic Acid and Irish Moss seaweed for hydration.

I say: I love this serum and it has definitely found its place in my favourite beauty products of all time list! Skin feels absolutely gorgeous after regular use.

Using naturally derived peptides extracted from rice, soya and yeast proteins, this serum boosts collagen and stimulates the blood flow around the eye to eliminate dark circles. Combined with Stratum C’s luxuriant anti-ageing ingredients,  restores eyes healthy glow, replenishes key moisture and reduce existing wrinkles.

I say: Firstly, the super cool syringe packaging is a delight! But that’s not why you should try it.. After the first week, I noticed the skin around my eyes appeared brighter and most definitely less tired. Now for someone who spends a lot of time still cooped up in bed this really impressed me. After week two, I noticed the under eye area looked much firmer too. There is a real luxurious feel to the eye serum and I definitely prefer a serum to an eye cream after using this.

Stratum C Menopause Protect Cream £85protect cream

A luxurious facial day and night moisturising cream for all skin types incorporating Stratum C’s unique collagen producing peptide formula combined with the very best hydration systems using Hyaluronic Acid and Squalane combined with Vitamins A and E.

I say: I like that I can use this muscle tightening cream both day and night. Sometimes it’s easier to keep things simple. Matrixyl, Hyaluronic Acid and Squalane  hydrate and moisturise the skin deep into the lower levels of the dermis. The jojoba and Apricot kernal oil which provide the Vitamin A & E make the cream really nourishing and perfect for my skin which has really suffered due to all the medication I still take. Recently, I’ve had lots of comments on how soft and radiant my skin looks, which definitely leaves me glowing inside and out!

The range itself is very comprehensive, with everything from Cleansers to Hand Cream. I was really keen to try a range that was created for women going through the menopause and those of us that have or are experiencing the changes will know how different our skin is. Stratum C is most definitely ticking all the right boxes when it comes to addressing the specific skincare concerns of menopausal and post menopausal women.

Fantastic results in a short space of time makes all the difference. Really pleased I discovered the Brand.
