A serum to boost collagen and smooth the skin


Dandelion extract is unusual and nutrient rich


A few unwanted ingredients

Schique is a doctor-founded brand that focuses on ingredients that are effective and do no harm. The mostly natural formulas are based on peptides and unusual botanicals for a decent price point. Truth In Aging community members have been giving the line enthusiastic reviews and I am joining their ranks with my test of Schique Brilliantly Firm Firming Serum ($68 in the shop).

This serum has a lovely silky texture and imparts the same to the skin. After four weeks, my skin feels velvety and is noticeably more supple. Fine lines are softened. These are the results I would expect from a serum that contains the power peptide combo, Matrixyl 3000.

But what makes Schique a standout, in my opinion, is its signature botanical, extract of dandelion. I have to confess that I didn’t know much about this cheerful, but humble weed before researching this review. The dandelion is amazing. The next time one annoyingly sprouts up in the middle of your otherwise pristine lawn, look at it in a whole new light.

The density of nutrients in this ingredient is incredible. There’s beta carotene, vitamin C and more calcium and iron than in spinach. The vitamin K levels in dandelion (a compound that helps broken capillaries and dark circles) are practically off the charts. Several studies have demonstrated that dandelion extracts or individual compounds extracted from leaves or roots are anti-inflammatory, anti-carcinogenic and antioxidant due to various polyphenolics and sesquiterpenes. Linoleic acid content encourages the skin to retain its natural moisture.

Another notable ingredient is lentil extract. I’d like to see more of this in skincare as lentil extract controls sebum and its oligosaccharide content stimulates the process of keratinocyte maturation, eliminating nucleated cells from around the pores.

Bamboo, pea, vitamin C and glucosamine HCl, an anti-inflammatory help round out the formula. There are some ingredients that purists will balk at, including dimethicone (a silicone), propylene glycol and a couple of harsh preservatives.
