    The Ordinary - Caffeine Solution 5% + EGCG

    The Ordinary Caffeine Solution 5% + EGCG Reviews

    Small price big difference
    I have been using this product for 3 weeks now am and pm was a bit wary first after reading the mixed reviews on here. My dark circles started to become prominent even through concealer so I decided to give this a go and am I shocked at the results even from friends the comments are amazing. I use 2 drops in the morning around the eye contour and then 2 drops in the evening with this I also use the 100% organic cold pressed rosehip seed oil, as soon as you apply you can feel a slight tightness around the eye area where applied. My skin feels plumped around the eye area and also have noticed the dark circles lighting. Will purchase again.
    Works well
    I like the product, it really boosts my black areas under my eyes in the morning and leaves my skin plumped and fresh. I like the short tingling sensation it gives. I always apply eye cream on top of it, as it is quite dry but with some cream if doesn’t affect the makeup and there are no greasing lines under my eyes. Would recommend to anyone!
    No difference!
    Used over a month, had seen no difference whatsoever. Still dark eyes and i use AM and PM! Not worth wasting your money
    Noticed a difference!
    Love it!
    Did absolutely nothing for my dark circles
    I have naturally dark pigmentation (brown) around my eyes that's genetic so literally no eye cream so far has helped with that. It’s a watery serum texture and it wasn’t very hydrating. I had to top up my eyecare with another eye cream over it if not my concealer would crease. Can’t speak to how it reduces puffiness as I don’t suffer from it so overall, this product was fine but probably was not for me.
    The ordinary
    Great.
    Wonderful
    Cheap price with excellent skincare!
    The ordinary
    Now I found something that really works
    Perfection
    The most extraordinary product that I have ever used. My eyes not swollen anymore.
    SO GOOD
    If your problem is dark circles this is the one to try. Super affordable and it really works. I don’t have super crazy dark circles but whenever I use it (almost always at night) I wake up with a much lighter under eye area! Definitely will buy again!
    Amazing
    This is so good that my fiance has started using it too. After a few weeks, my dark circles were pretty much gone, and his puffiness was massively reduced - will 100% purchase again.
    My experience
    Fantastic! I really recommend it to everyone.
    It is working
    I have been doing my research on how best to reduce eye bags, as mine are/were more like suitcases. I found out that caffeine reduces them, so I looked at and tried some eye creams/serums and none seemed to work in the long term, they were more instant fixes until you wash your face! (I always try out products for 4 weeks before trying something new, to give them a chance) I then came across this but it was out of stock, so I put my name on the wait list. I am glad I did as I noticed a considerable difference in the reduction of the bags after 3 days using it 2 times a day morning and evening. I could feel it working as it tightened the loose skin under my eyes, They are not quite there yet as its only been 2.5 weeks of use ( I received it the beginning of August, but I was in the middle of trying something else) I have repurchased it (just to stock up). So to cut my long story short I HIGHLY recommend this serum.
    Magic Eye Potion
    I have a lot of love for The Ordinary right now. I feel like Hermione Granger in Potions class at Hogwarts with all my little bottles to play with & the magic they weave! Ok, The Caffeine solution 5% & EGCG is amazing for reducing the puffiness in my eyes. I have hooded eyes, & pretty sensitive skin. I had a reaction to a well known premium brand of skincares' eye cream & my eyes were very swollen, I had ice on them but I also dabbed this serum on & it reduced the puffiness, without stinging. I cannot use thick creams on the eyes as they make my hooded eyes puffier , this serum is quit runny just the right consistency & feels soothing , as for the dark circles, I'm a nurse who does night shifts and I think I will need to give it time! Excellent product!
    Hasn't worked on my dark circles yet
    I've been using this most nights for about a month and can't see any difference in the dark circles, my main problem, although they aren't that dark. However, whilst my eyes don't get puffy underneath very often, I don't think I've had any at all recently which could be down to using this product. I'm hopeful that as I continue to use it, my dark circles will start reducing, as so many others have had success.
    Difference
    It's nice and all... I have dark undereye corners but no puffiness, this didn't combat this. Will use a few more months but probably will not repurchase.
    Great Poduct!
    I use caffeine drops every morning. I feel they calm the redness and relax my under eye swelling.
    This is a Repurchase for Me
    Excellent product.
    Satisfied
    I bought this for me (32) and my mother (58 - she has evident puffy eyes and dark circles) and we both are so satisfied with this serum. It is light yellow, thick, and sticky and I noticed a visible improvement in terms of puffiness and darkness. My mother also told me that since she started using this (around 10 days), her eyes also stopped tearing in the morning after makeup... AMAZING! Please Cult Beauty, keep it restocked!
    It works
    I was about to give up all hope of finding a dark circle remedy that actually worked when I stumbled across this gem. It works! Use a little every night and rub completely in. I find that it’s not a good base for make-up (congeals the makeup under my eye) so I don’t use it in the morning. A must try.
    Disappointing
    I have used several of The Ordinary products and found most of them to be amazing, however, this didn't seem to improve anything. My dark circles are exactly the same. Disappointing from a usually great brand.
    It is amazing!
    First of all, I want to mention that I am a person with real dark circles...I have them since always, so actually since I was born. I already agreed that nothing will help for that because my face is just like that. I bought this product to give it a try, but mostly for puffiness issue that I started to have some days and I can't figure it out from where it comes, I guess bad circulation in my veiny undereye area. So after I tried it first I was like mehhh... it doesn't really do anything. It was on my shelf for few weeks, I just didn't use it. I came back to this product about 4 days ago because my eye puffiness was driving me crazy and I just didn't know what else I can do. And then a miracle happened! I was using it morning and evening for 4 days and my eye area day by day is better. I just can't believe how it improved mine under eye area. I look so fresh and younger even tho I am 26 years old, I don't have any wrinkles yet but my eyes in the morning looked horrible lately... so basically it didn't improve my dark circles, it seems to be a little bit less spread but I still have them. For puffiness is my number one! Just try to use it at least for few days in a row to see the results.
    Even worse
    I was hoping it would help with dark circles especially but after a few applications, it makes everything even worse! Never had problems with puffy eyes but after using this serum I somehow always wake up puffy and with circles darker than usual. No idea why this happens. I'm a big fan of Deciem otherwise but this is a big disappointment. Started using it on my thighs, maybe the caffeine helps at least against cellulite :)
    Love This product
    There is barely an eye product that I have not used - some of which have been very expensive and returned very little in the way of improvement - until now. Over the past few weeks using this product both morning and evening has brought about a visible change to the puffiness of my under eye area with dark circles reduced. I will never be without this product.
    Love it
    This is the only thing that helped with my dark circles, love it. Dark circles and puffiness are gone for good (I hope). Will repurchase 100%.
    Coffee
    Great!
    LOVE, LOVE, LOVE......
    ...this product and everything about it; especially the price. Be prepared to say bye, bye to dark circles and puffiness. It even fills up and smooth the fine lines under my eyes and tighten my crows feet. Finally a product which actually lives up to it's promises, and together with The Ordinary's Argireline Solution 10% you have a powerful anti-age duo for your eyes. Highly recommended.
    The most effective long-term
    I've tried a lot of products and home remedies to get rid of my dark circles, but this is perfect. I only used it in the evening and my dark circles were gone after the first use. I now only use it once in a while. Highly recommend.
    Loveeee
    So nice to put on morning and night, absorbs so quick so is really nice under makeup, the bottle lasts FOREVER as well!
    I love it
    It's the only eye product that is working for me right now (small baby home). It makes wonders.
    Dark circles under the eyes are significantly smaller
    Nice serum. I use it twice a day (morning and evening). It helped a lot with my dark circles under the eyes.
    Have seen a difference
    I've started to help puffiness under my eyes. It's a nice, light serum and I only use it in the morning. Looking forward to trying more things from this range
    Disappointing
    Hoping that the wonderful ingredients that are supposed to be in this product would work, I am yet to find something that makes this product a must for those who wish to hide dark circles and reduce puffiness around eyes. Do not even contemplate the idea of investing in this product.
    Starting to make a difference!
    I am giving this five stars stars as I am beginning to see a difference and like the consistency of this lightweight serum. So onwards and upwards!
    Excellent
    Slow but steady results. A must buy!
    Not for sensetive eyes
    Liked it, you really can see some result
    Great Feeling
    ***English translation*** Perfect for the morning~~
    Good
    It's a nice formula unlike other eye products but it is quite strong if it gets into your eyes, so be careful with that.
    Meh
    Bought this hoping it would get rid of or help with my dark circles however after a month of using both AM&PM, I haven't noticed a change. The one thing it's really helped is when my eyes are puffy from the lack of sleep etc, it sorts that out rather quickly. Wouldn't buy again since the dark circles is my main issue!
    Excellent
    Excellent
    It actually works
    This is one of the best skincare products I have ever used because you actually can see a difference in a few minutes, nothing else help with my puffiness the way this does. You will need to apply a hydrating eye Creme after that as it makes the area a little drier. Can’t be without it.
    So worth it
    This is just amazing. It does exactly what it says. For real for real it is like morning coffee for your undereyes. A little goes a long long way and you can see results right away darkness and puffiness wise. I'm impressed.
    Great
    Really great product. Gentle on the skin and refreshing in the morning
    Disappointed
    I waited for this product to come back in stock and was excited to try it as the reviews were good. However, I have been disappointed with it. I don’t think it works at all but instead, I think my eyes look worse when I use it. I would not buy again.
    It works
    Against the dark circles great
    Recommended by so Many Friends!
    Lots of friends are amazed by its function.
    The Ordinary - Caffeine Solution 5% + EGCG
    It's nice.
    It's great
    I have puffy eyes, it really help to drain some excess water and de-puffs my eyes. However, it is not moisturising enough.
    Absolutely unreal
    When I say I have tried everything to combat dark circles I literally mean everything. I have tried every under eye patch you can think of and even a few times a week, I didn’t think this would make much difference but wow it’s amazing. I always wanted to be able to do day to day with no makeup but couldn’t because my dark circles were that bad. Now, I never wear makeup. Could not recommend more xo
    Bot very good under concealer
    Just doesn't work with my mac concealer. Using it in the evenings before my eye cream. Have noticed a slight difference after a month or so.
    Not for me
    After a recommendation from a makeup artist, I purchased this in the hope of lessening dark circles. I found this really drying and as a result it created creases under my eye making me look old, tired and run down. As for dark circles, I can’t say they were reduced at all.
    Another reason to love coffee
    Goodbye morning puffiness and hello to a flawless concealer application. This product is very potent, and you can actually see it and feel it working. In just a few minutes it sinks into the skin and gets rid of any puffiness, tightens the eye area, layers perfectly under concealer/foundation, no one will ever know that you haven't slept because you've binged watched series all night!
    Average
    I don't see much difference after using this product.
    No difference
    I had really high hopes for this to reduce my dark circles because the reviews I have read about it have been so positive and also it's really affordable. I used it day and night for about a month but unfortunately noticed no real difference whatsoever. When I applied it, it felt like it "tightened" a little bit around my eyes, but that was about it. It didn't do anything for my dark circles.
    The ordinary caffeine solution
    Absulutely brilliant.
    The best
    Bought this all the way from Malaysia. The best product to get rid of eye bags. I've used it for 1 week and the different is amazing.
    Great Value
    Fantastic product, within two days of using it, I immediately noticed a difference. Less puffiness and darkness around my eyes. I use a tiny bit around my eye contour after applying Kiehl's creamy avocado eye cream. Top stuff, highly recommend.
    Will order again
    I immediately saw an improvement in the dark circles under my eyes. One week in and I no longer wear concealer. HG status for me.
