The M Word: How To Thrive in Menopause
Menopause and perimenopause (the hormonal rollercoaster years leading up to a woman’s last period) are among our last taboo subjects.

Dr. Ginni Mansberg, one of Australia’s most trusted health and wellbeing experts, is here to work through the evidence and bust the taboos out of the water.

"I've been using the pigmentation products for a month now, I'm very happy with the results, my brown spots have certainly faded, my overall skin is looking much better, and I'm looking forward to even greater results as I continue on using this fabulous skin care regime. I love the way my skin feels after each use and my makeup glides on to give a nice dewy effect which I haven't been able to achieve for some time. I'm feeling more confident in being able to reduce my makeup usage overall."
"Hi, my name is Kelly and I have suffered with problematic skin for most of my life. I had terrible acne and chicken pocks as a child that resulted in scarring. Then along came the fine lines and wrinkles. In just under two weeks, I have seen a massive change! The regime is incredibly easy to follow, you don’t need much of it and it is an Australian product! I am finally proud of my skin and cannot wait to see what my face looks like in a month! I am so grateful! Thank you Esk!"
"I would just like to say how impressed I am with ESK skin care.
I turn the big 60 this year and have be looking for a skin care for mature skin. I was watching Sunrise and Ginni came on talking about ESK. So I thought I would give it ago and I loved the fact that it was made in Australia. I love the way the cleanser made my skin feel so clean and light and the way the products sunk straight into my skin. Which I have been looking for forever. Most products just sit on top of my skin which is frustrating and can be very expensive.
My skin looks smoother and plumper. Finally something that works 😊 Thanks ESK"
"E.S.K is a fabulous product. I thought I would struggle to incorporate a skincare routine in my life but after using E.S.K for a month, I realised how easy and rewarding it is to take better care of my skin. I love that all the bottles are labelled using numbers so even on a busy morning, I can certainly take care of my skin without worry."
"I have noticed an overall difference in the feel of my skin, it feels more plump and the colour has evened out. Wrinkles appear to have less depth. I have just started to use eye serum which I am excited about.
Extremely impressed with results so far, only regret is I wish I had started using it sooner."
"Well what a remarkable change my face has had, I have now been using your skin now for 6mths and what a difference I have experienced, my skin not only looks heaps better but also feels amazing. The softness of the skin is unbelievable. Very, very happy and I have actually weaned myself off my medication for my skin. I have tried coming off it before and within a month my face would be a mess and would have to go back on to control the acne rosacea again.
I will attach photos of before treatment and now. Once again, thank you again for your amazing products."
"My tailored ESK skincare set has exceeded all my expectations. I actually didn’t realise how dull and badly pigmented my skin was until seeing my own 4 weeks progress and honestly being in complete shock of the difference it has made!
I feel so much more confident now to let my natural skin be on show and not having to hide it behind a face full of makeup. I will 100% continue to use this regime as if it can make this difference in just one month imagine what the long term results can be.
Would highly recommend them to anyone that is facing their own skincare issues."
"I have been using ESK for about a year now and I absolutely love it! I have always had quite a red face and using the rosacea kit it has definitely calmed it down and also helped with my acne! But not only that I love how soft the products leave my face feeling. Can't rave about this product anymore!!"
"To tell you how HAPPY I am with my ESK results....as mentioned I just needed a little longer than the 3 weeks to clear up a bit more but each day I could see my face getting better & better so I knew it was still doing it's thing! I have found my forever skin care I am so happy I found you guys!
This product is amazing & I am happy to show the world that it works! I know how frustrating & disheartening it is spending so much money on skincare & not getting results. If showing people my results helps anyone who is so down about their skin get such fantastic results while also getting this product the recognition it deserves I am happy to help x"
"Over the past 3 weeks I've been using ESK Skincare as my morning and nighttime routine and let me tell you, I'm pretty impressed with it. The bottles are numbered so you know exactly what to use, when to use it and in what order. And there aren't a ton of steps, making it a regimen I was able to maintain. My trouble spot is my forehead and as you can see, in a short amount of time, my acne has visibly cleared up!"
"I have used a lot of different skincare products over the years, including professional clinical products and without a doubt, I have found ESK skincare to be the best. Their evidence based products feel lovely on my skin and my expression/age lines have softened and are less noticeable. I am lucky to be blessed with good skin, especially for my age, but ESK products are definitely making a positive difference and my skin looks and feels healthy. I am a repeat customer and will happily remain a loyal one."
"I actually do think esk products have improved my skin, maybe got rid of a few fine lines but my skin just looks and feels healthier almost glowing, I’m also really impressed with the after sales service.. such a personal touch that is rare these days"
"Prior to using ESK my skin was horrible, I tried lots of different skin care products, medication, saw a skin care specialist and nothing worked. It was my mum that actually found ESK and got me using the products and within a week my skin had already cleared up. I absolutely love how they feel and how reliable this brand is. I use my products every day morning and night and don't know what I would do without them!"
"So I've been using ESK Skincare’s Hydroxy Overnight Mask a couple of nights a week for a few weeks now and I am definitely impressed. It leaves my face glowing in the morning and doesn’t let it dry at all. Super hydrating mask! I've also used it to spot treat any breakout, dry and chapped skin! Don't you just love a product that not only works, but oh so versatile too!!!"
"I have been using ESK skincare products for about 8 months now and I’m absolutely loving the results. I’m in my 50’s and was concerned with ageing and dryness. I find the ESK products have really improved my dry skin and overall skin texture. I also find the pump application great and one pump gives you the right amount so you’re not wasting any product. I was initially drawn to ESK because it is Australian made, evidence based and cruelty free but have continued with it because I’m loving the results and find it’s great value for money.
All in all I’m very happy with the products and couldn’t recommend them more highly."
"My name is Marcia and at age 51 my skin is definitely on the mature side as well as being dry. I was hoping to get results to reduce pigmentation and fine lines as well as to increase the general hydration of my skin. Ive been using ESK for 1 month. My favorite product is the Reverse "C" Serum. I just love how my skin feels after it absorbs into it. I am absolutely thrilled with the way my skin is feeling so hydrated and I can really see a difference with the pigmentation. Even the skin on my neck feels soft all day long and I'm feeling confident that with continued use my results will continue to improve. Yes I would recommend E.S.K and infact, after years of breakouts and acne with no real improvement from many products, my daughter is going to try the Acne Kit range. I can't wait to see the results for her."
"I’ve never been so excited to share my results & most importantly my love for ESK Skincare.. I’ve been using their products for about 1 year now and I’ve never been so happy with the state of my skin. After suffering from Acne for 5+ years, I was recommended ESK from a family friend, since then I’ve never looked back.. Within 3 weeks of using the products I noticed a huge difference in the texture & size of my Acne. I love that ESK is evidence based skincare, uses scientifically tested products and really cares about their customers. After spending years and years trying skincare products, I’m so glad I found ESK.. never looking back!"
