PERFECT FOR: Tired, fatigued, dull skin around the eyes

”I don’t use it as a eye serum. I find this formulation perfect as a slimming antioxidant serum. I used it on my undereye bags, cheeks, neck and jawline. It has noticeably slimmed down my cheek, jaw and neck, and made a lot less puffy taking down both fat and water retention. I love this product. Plus, the green tea content and the soy flavonoids works well with the caffeine and make it perfect as a firming, age preventing serum.”

”I have been using this product since March, daily. I have deep, dark , genetic circles and noticeable eye bags. It has done wonders at reducing bags but not so much dark circles. I always have a back of this nonetheless. It can be a tad bit drying so make sure to use your face moisturizer around the eye contour as well.”

1. Hollowness in the eye contour as a result of structure of sub-dermal tissues like fat and bone can result in visible shadows under the eyes. This shadow, which is not to be mistaken for dark circles, cannot be addressed with topical skincare including this formula.
2. Fat deposits under the eye contour can create permanent puffiness in this area. This type of deposit cannot be improved with topical skincare, including this formula.
3. Supplied in UV-protective packaging as EGCG is sensitive to light.

Additional studies have shown that caffeine can also reduce the appearance of cellulite.

Helps keep you from looking like you lack hours of sleep

I have extremely puffy bags and though this does not remove it, I think it minimizes the effect of another late-night, lack of sleep. I’ve been using it for more than a week now. I trust the ingredients and I’m keeping my fingers crossed it’s going to show better results in time.

Reduces puffiness

I don't really have very dark circles so I can't attest to that but my puffiness is less ever since I started using this. I like how it dries super fast and matte, very comforting and not drying as well. It's pretty good for the price, and the bottle will last forever. So it's a pretty good buy especially if you're not into luxury eye creams.

no more puffiness!!

I've always had extremely puffy bags under my eyes and I've only tried the eye cream from Mizon but this caffeine solution from The Ordinary is so much more effective in getting rid of the puffiness. It does not do so much in terms of lighten your dark circles though(very mild change). But I will continue to use this because it doesnt irritate my eyes or give me milia and it does exactly what I want it to do!

might be useful to drama queens

i got over-excited when the ordinary products was available in beautyMNL. i hauled and i slightly regretted what i have done, not because this is not a good product but maybe because i don't really need this because i dont have issues around my eyes so i didn't find it so useful. nevertheless, i discovered that it does effectively depuffs the eye after crying and crying over a fight with my partner. and because im such a drama queen and a crybaby, i think i can find use of this one.

Great for puffiness

Loved the product mainly for it being effective in reducing the puffiness of my eye bags. I ordered a bottle off from theordinary.com on March and have around half of the contents still, even though I've been using it every night. I have noticed though that it doesn't reduce the size of my (genetic) eye bags even after a long period of time of use. BUT, really effective for mornings when I know I've eaten a lot of salty food and wine the night before.
