    The Ordinary - Caffeine Solution 5% + EGCG

    The Ordinary Caffeine Solution 5% + EGCG Reviews

    Amazing
    Leaves my undereyes less dark and puffy and lasts a long time.
    Great value caffeine eye product
    Nice and lightweight and soaks in quickly. I only had vague dark circles but within a week, there was a noticeable improvement.
    Not 100% sure
    I definitely like it, hence 4 stars. My eyes feel fresh. But I'm not really sure that it actually works as I didn't clearly see the results. Maybe I haven't used it for long enough to actually see the difference, but 4 stars only for the feeling that it leaves.
    Plumped skin
    My skin under my eyes is really plumped but I haven’t really got dark circles so I can’t tell if it works on that.
    Not impressed
    I bought this product because of the great reviews and used it for 2 weeks now... I am giving it a 3 because I hope it will work in the longer term (if so I’ll add a new review) but so far I have seen no improvement in my dark circles. It makes the skin more plump though, I’ll give it that.
    So far, so good
    I have big, dark circles and puffiness and the product works very well in comparison with other products that I have tried but is not life changing.
    Hoping for a miracle that didn’t happen
    Disappointed by this product. Have used for 3 weeks, twice daily. No noticeable difference. If I apply moisturiser and concealer on top, my under eye area dries out and the makeup looks flakey. Ah well. Don’t waste your money.
    Works well
    So far, out of the eye products that I've tried to lighten up my slightly dark under eyes, this one works best for me. It took about 2 weeks before I noticed and improvement on my eye. I haven using it for a little over a month now. I'm happy I gave this one a try.
    Really good
    Works really well to wake up eyes in the morning - I've also been using it on my wrinkly neck skin and I think it's having some smoothing effect. Will definitely buy again!
    Meh
    I first tried it only on one of my dark circles and I have to say you could notice the difference with from the other eye. But after I've used it everyday for about two weeks I couldn't really notice any difference. It's just a little improvement, the darkness is still there. I wouldn't buy it again.
    Disappointing.
    After reading all the reviews, I expected a lot from this product but was disappointed. What I dislike the most is the texture. It is rather sticky and did not hydrate my under eyes.
    Caffeine Solution 5%
    THE GREATEST PRODUST I HAVE EVER USED!!!
    Hydrating
    I have been using this for about a month have not seen much of a difference with my eye bags not sure anything will ever work. But they are not as dry as before.
    So much love for this
    Another The Ordinary product that has won my heart. Immediate and long lasting effects, my eyes can’t be more thankful. I’ve always suffered from morning puffy eyes/dark circles since teen years and it’s only since I started using this (over a year now) that I’ve forgotten what that feels like. All aces!
    Great product and great price
    At first, I was not sure if the serum was working, until one day I forgot to use it and realised what my under eye circles looked like before...
    Great
    Use for scars and cellulite.
    Miracle
    It worked instantaneously on my bags and my dark circles disappeared after a few days. I have never seen such instant results from a product.
    Amazing.
    I'm really impressed with this product as it has improved the puffiness on my eyes dramatically.
    Feels good
    I just started using it. Feels good on eyes. Can't say if it works for dark circles or not.
    Amazing.
    This product is sooo good, I saw a difference within 1 week of using it. It does exactly what it says.
    The best
    Best product for dark circles under the eyes...
    So far so good.
    I haven't seen a major difference but i guess it will take some time to work on my eyes.
    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.
    So Impressed
    I'm ultra self conscious about my under eye skin and nothing has worked to improve the look and fine lines (which look much worse if I've been out in the cold/wind). My skin is very sensitive and easily irritated so I was a bit nervous about using this but needn't have worried. I've used it am and pm for the last couple of weeks and could tell the difference, not only that but my husband proactively commented that my under eyes look better which is a miracle in itself. Really pleased with this, bargain price, highly recommended!
    Not for sensetive eyes
    Liked it, you really can see some result
    Excellent
    Slow but steady results. A must buy!
    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!
    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.
    Great way to start each morning
    Lightweight, cooling eye gel that I keep in the fridge and apply every morning after washing my face. Fantastic feeling each and every time :)
    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
    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.
    Great Feeling
    ***English translation*** Perfect for 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.
    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'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.
    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.
    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.
    Loveeee
    So nice to put on morning and night, absorbs so quick so is really nice under makeup, the bottle lasts FOREVER as well!
    Very useful for problematic skin
    Even though it has not reduced puffiness as much as I would have liked, sometimes I tend to apply it all over my face (not only around the eye area) and I think my skin has gotten so much better, in terms of acne and discolouration. I have less pimples and my face is not as red anymore. Happy, would totally repurchase! :)
    Re: great product
    You only need a tiny drop and it goes a long way. It’s not too oily and is excellent value for money.
    A staple skin care product
    The product has definitely reduced some puffiness. I barely use any on my eyes - just dab a dot under each eye then rub in. Will definitely last a long time.
    It works for under eye wrinkles
    Before buying a product, I made sure to read the reviews for references that's why I am writing this; to help others. This product works! My under eye wrinkles are almost gone just after 4 days of usage. I wonder why this is not five star rated.
    Didn’t work
    I’m 21 and have had dark circles since my teens. They’ve gotten worse over the years and the bags under my eyes have also become more sunken. I bought this after reading so many great reviews about how it worked for others and after trying so many other products and none of them working I thought this would! I’ve been using it for around 6 months now, twice every day, and have seen little improvement to the darkness under my eyes. However, I think my circles now just may be too dark for anything to help so have given up completely, but if you only have a little darkness then this may work for you. I also recently found that it had damaged the skin under my eye and I ended up with a slight burn under my right eye which left a little flakiness so I couldn’t wear any makeup.
    Love it!
    I have tried a lot of The Ordinary's products but this is my favourite. In one week it not only reduced my dark circles but also made my eyelashes thicker. I've been using it on and off for about 6 months now and I no longer have dark circles.
    Didn't work for me but mum loves it
    I got this to tackle my dark circles but I found it a bit drying and it didn't sit well under my makeup. So I gave it to my mum and she loves it and it has made a difference for her puffiness under her eyes.
    Really good for dark circles and bags under my eyes
    Works good for reducing bags under eyes.
    Caffeine Solution 5%
    I've been using this for just over a week, morning and evening. One drop has been enough to go under both eyes and a light touch on the eyelids. I don't use any more otherwise it leaves a white residue on the skin. I usually have quite dark blue bags under the eyes the serum has done a good job of reducing the darkness and the puffiness.
    Amazing
    Been using for less than two weeks and already seen an amazing difference! I'm not really affected by puffiness exactly but I had awful dark circles and this makes it look like I'm wearing concealer all the time! I also have reeeally sensitive and thin skin around my eyes and this is absolutely fine - stings a bit if you get it in a cut/tear but generally not irritating at all! Will literally use this forever
    Firming
    Iv been using this for over a month now and feel the puffiness under my eyes has reduced . Only downside is if you get it in your eyes it stings like mad !
    Doesn’t do anything for me
    I don’t have puffiness, and it didn’t help me with the dark circles.
    Oil
    Feels like you are giving your eyes a treat.
    Good
    This actually works.
    Not a gimmick
    This actually works!! I’m always sceptical when it comes to magic solutions for under eyes as they rarely do the job but I can honestly say that I see a difference the very next morning when I use it. Really lightens the shadows under my eyes. The only downside is that it makes my concealer a bit drier than usual so don’t wear it during the day.
    Does nothing for dark circles!
    I was “wishin' and hopin' and thinkin' and prayin'” this would work on my dark circles, do something even small to change them- it did absolutely nothing #gutted #thesearchgoeson
    No improvement
    I love The Ordinary so really wanted this to work on my dark circles. Packaging and texture of serum felt as luxurious as usual, but unfortunately after using a whole bottle I saw no improvement to my dark circles. Also difficult to put eye makeup over, so reduced to just evening use.
    Nice
    I don't really have dark circles and I didn't buy it for that,so I can't say if it's good for that,but I bought it because it has caffeine(of course) which is a natural spf (slightly,like a 5,but still better than nothing).I also saw after it has lactic acid in it,which I don't know if I should be happy or sad. Lactic Acid is good for wrinkles, especially that u can't use acids under the eyes so this one has really small concentrations I guess,but the thing is I bought it for the "spf" so now it has lactic acid which you would need Spf for, so I guess I have to start using it only at night then.
    The Ordinary - Caffeine Solution 5% + EGCG
    Seriously, this is good .. really pleased with the results.
    Very impressed
    Amazing serum at an amazing price, I love this product, it’s almost worked miracles
    Not see anything too much
    Maybe take a time more than 2 weeks? But you need to be careful if you put on damaged skin because it will be painful!
    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!
    Wonderful
    Cheap price with excellent skincare!
    The ordinary
    Great.
    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.
    Noticed a difference!
    Love it!
    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
    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!
    Perfection
    The most extraordinary product that I have ever used. My eyes not swollen anymore.
    The ordinary
    Now I found something that really works
    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!
    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
    Excellent
    Excellent
    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.
    Recommended by so Many Friends!
    Lots of friends are amazed by its function.
    The Ordinary - Caffeine Solution 5% + EGCG
    It's nice.
    It works
    Against the dark circles great
    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.
    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.
    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.
    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.
    I love it
    It's the only eye product that is working for me right now (small baby home). It makes wonders.
