CLAIM TO FAME: An energizing solution that reduces pigmentation and puffiness around the eye area

FAST FACTS: Light-textured formula contains an extremely high 5% concentration of caffeine; supplemented with highly-purified epigallocatechin gallatyl glucoside (EGCG) from green tea leaves; helps reduce puffiness and dark circles around the eye area; features a pH level of 4.50-5.00; vegan formula is cruelty-free and doesn’t contain alcohol, oil, silicone, and nut

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.

Safe for Eczema. Effective in fighting against dark under-eye woes, perfect for stressed out working millennial

(Note: I have a skin condition called seborrheic dermatitis, which is a milder form of eczema, and I found this safe for my skin)......I am a male and I previously didn't have a great deal about my skin (majority of my previous purchases were for my mother) until I recently started working and stress got the better of my skin, especially the eye part. I decided to buy this product so that I'd look fresh and energized at work, or practically everywhere. This product definitely helped me in fighting dark under-eye woes. While looking for the perfect eye serum/cream, this product had me fascinated because of its special set of ingredients which makes it a stand-out among other products (which usually have the same formulation, to be honest). Plus given how I personally witnessed the wonder of this brand, I started becoming interested in other The Ordinary products to solve my other skin concerns. P.S. I hope BeautyMNL would also create a section of products for people with special skin conditions like me.

Surprisingly effective!

I got this from a friend who felt she didn't need it. I didn't think this was doing anything. It feels nice and tingly when you apply it, but at first I didn't notice any improvement around my eyes. Then, within a week of use, I realized that I hadn't been applying concealer under my eyes anymore! I'm very sure I don't get eight hours of sleep, so it must be this!

Temporary but work really good!

I bought this abroad a few weeks back i put a small drop on the back of my hand and massage it on my under eyes then I let it sit for about 2 mins. I do this twice a day morning and night. Honestly so amazed how it works. My dark circles disappear and my eyes are not puffy at all. Although one thing I did observe is that after I put it on the morning my dark circles are clear, and yes I do look super fresh on the way to work then going home I look at my self in the car mirror and wow my dark circles are back. I re-apply it at night and it disappears and comes right back in the morning. I dont know if the solution was meant to be temporary for only a few hours or it takes more than 2 weeks to take into effect? We'll see! I have a long way to go with this bottle!

Eyes must have!!!

Caffeine Solution 5% + EGCG really helps reduce looks of puffiness and of dark circles in the eyes. Also, it minimize the visible appearance of cellulite below the eyes. Perfect for the the people who are taking care of the eyes appearance. It just leave the skin dry so moisturize it would be necessary. Good job for this product! Thanks.

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.
