A formidable anti-wrinkle eye cream

Pros

Dandelion extract and innovative applcator

Cons

Didn't lift lids as much as hoped for

By Julie

Have you ever used a product wherein the first time you applied it you thought this is a really lovely?! Well Schique Insightful Contour Eye Cream ($64 in the shop) is that product. It checks all the boxes – feels wonderful when applied no heavy feeling whatsoever, absorbs immediately with no residual stickiness so makeup can be applied immediately, no scent, innovative applicator, moisturizes and smooths the skin AND it has these remarkable quartz particles that help brighten and enhance the eye area and deflect under eye discolorations – it’s really a beautiful thing.

The woman behind the Schique is Board Certified Dr. Jacqueline Schaffer who created Schique in 2014. Driven by her mother’s two-time battle with skin cancer, she was determined to develop products that are derived mainly from natural based organic ingredients that are therapeutic as well as good for the skin. All products are vegan and gluten-free, cruelty-free, paraben and sulfate-free. 

The mainstay of her product line is dandelion extract – yes you read correctly! After much research Dr. Schaffer discovered that dandelion has many therapeutic properties and is loaded with hydrating minerals and antioxidants as well as vitamins A, B6, C, to name a few. It helps support healthy tissue function and nourishes deep into skin tissue reducing wrinkles, and working to fade scars and clear up acne. With its high alkaline levels, it also helps fight off infection and bacteria. It’s a powerful ingredient!

This eye cream is rich in moisturizing properties thanks to not only dandelion extract but the added heavy hitters Shea butter and Apricot extract – both which also provide a protective barrier to ensure your whole eye area is smooth and looks and feels healthy.  It includes lentil seed extract, touted for collagen production as well as skin-saving properties, pea extract that provides not only anti-aging properties but lighter and brighter skin, and bamboo extract rich in antioxidants and skin soothers. This formidable cream also contains two anti-aging peptides.

The quartz minerals I mentioned are a spectacular bonus!  Their light reflective properties brighten any discolorations under the eye and opens up the top lid.  I used a tiny dot of the cream on each eye twice daily – morning and night.  The product is easy to dispense and has a smoothing tool that is a great addition you can use to massage the lids and under eye area, though the cream absorbs quite nicely on its own.

The Insightful Contour Eye Cream worked wonders on fine lines and under eye puffiness and as I mentioned the way my eye area felt after applying this cream was fabulous!  You really don’t realize how important a moisturized eye area is until you use a product like this and it becomes apparent very quickly.  I am in my 60’s and have the unfortunate issue of creepy lids.  While this eye cream helped firm my top lids, I still needed that extra lift.  After the four weeks I re-introduced my Keracell Anti-aging serum which I used first and then 20 mins. later applied the Schique Insightful Contour Eye Cream on top of it. The results were outstanding!  The anti-aging serum alone is not moisturizing enough and this eye cream with all its moisturizing properties, good-for-your skin, and brightening ingredients has given my eyes the best look in years.

I will definitely be ordering this eye cream again and will be looking into the other products by Schique that Dr. Schaffer has developed.
