The Ordinary Caffeine Solution 5% + EGCG is a light-textured formula containing an extremely high 5% concentration of caffeine, supplemented with highly-purified Epigallocatechin Gallatyl Glucoside (EGCG) from green tea leaves. Independent studies have shown that topical use of each of caffeine and EGCG can help reduce looks of puffiness and of dark circles in the eye contour. Additional studies have shown that caffeine can also reduce the appearance of cellulite.
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.
Review(s) on The Ordinary Caffeine Solution 5% + EGCG:
"BEST EYE PRODUCT EVER! I have puffiness under my eyes and have tried a lot of different products without any real results. This one has truly made a visible difference. Be aware that at least for me, I had use it about a week before I saw any difference and the biggest change came after several weeks. I use it at night and again in the morning before makeup. One very pleasant surprise is that when I use it around my eyes and tap it into the inner corners, it behaves like a primer helping my concealer not to crease and to stay on better." - KJ's review of The Ordinary Caffeine Solution 5% + EGCG from theordinary.com
