”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.

I honestly didn’t see a difference with this product. I have been using it almost every night and morning, I like how it feels on the skin but I see no difference in the puffiness of my under eye area whatsoever. I also don’t see it brightening my dark circles either. The texture is oily so I do feel like it’s nourishing and it absorbs nicely as well, but otherwise no effect.10 days ago
I had a bad case of dark and puffy under eyes and this product saved me. The formula works for me considering i have quite a sensitive skin around the eye area. It’s not that pricey compared to other high end eye serums that work for me as well. Will definitely repurchase.22 days ago
Ive been looking for something to save my tired looking, puffy undereyes for quite a while now, but all these creams and serums just somehow seem ridiculously expensive. I stumbled across this product while browsing The Ordinary line, and since other serums from the same brand have garnered good reviews, I decided to give it a try. I was hesitant at first because the reviews about it arent really all that pleasing, but with a price point like that, you arent really risking much. 3rd night in and I havent noticed any changes as to the dark line under my eyes, puffiness has reduced by a bit though but I think thats because Ive had a little more extra sleep in the past 2 nights. Im in it for the lightening claims, continuing usage for a month and I hope it doesnt fail me.27 days ago
Only a week of using this product and I can definitely see a lighter under-eye 😭 Been looking for this for so long. Buti na lang I found this product and the ordinary brand in general. It may be expensive but the bottle goes a long way 👌🏻 So, super worth it. 💖about 1 month ago
It didn't work for me. My skin was purging because of the product. I also had bumps on my forehead and my face looked tired. When I noticed it, I stopped using the product to see if it was the cause and it was! I guess we're not meant to be The Ordinary 😔about 1 month ago
I use this in the morning in order to combat puffiness, eyebags and dark circles. And this has always worked for me this way. I am on my third bottle now. In the evening I use VMV Re-everything eye serum or Nuxe eye serum, but in the morning or during the day, nothing beats The Ordinary Caffeine. It's lightweight and really really works!2 months ago
