Unboxing The Ordinary Caffeine

See the product, the packaging, the bottle, the consistency and the colour before buying.

What does The Ordinary Caffeine do?

The Ordinary says their Caffeine Solution is made to make dark circles and puffiness around the eyes less noticeable. The formula is light and has a high concentration (5%) of caffeine, as well as purified EGCG from green tea leaves. Studies suggest that putting caffeine and EGCG directly on the skin can help reduce puffiness and dark circles around the eyes. Additionally, caffeine has been found to potentially make cellulite look less noticeable.

When there is a hollow area around the eyes due to how tissues like fat and bone are arranged under the skin, it can create shadows that are visible under the eyes. These shadows are different from dark circles and cannot be effectively treated with skincare products applied on the skin, including using this specific formula.

When do I use The Ordinary Caffeine?

  • You can use The Ordinary Caffeine Solution in the morning and/or evening.

How do I use The Ordinary Caffeine?

  • Just a drop onto your fingertips and massage onto the eye contour. You really only need a tiny amount.
  • Some people love this, but they can find it drying. If this happens to you, add some moisturiser on top of the Caffeine Solution. Cleanse first, then add your water-based serum like Hyaluronic Acid or Multi-Peptide Serum and then apply the Caffeine Solution around the eye.
  • Tip! Wipe the neck of the bottle after each use. This can get a bit sticky.
  • The Ordinary Caffeine Solution comes in UV-protective packaging because EGCG is sensitive to light.

The Ordinary Caffeine Solution Reviews

The Ordinary Caffeine really reduces my eyes. I´ve gone through a few bottles already.

I love The Ordinary Caffeine. I never use concealer anymore. No darkness or puffiness for me anymore. Best product I have used for those issues in my 50 years.

Most people expect Caffeine to improve lines around the eyes, but it’s actually better to use when you have big eyes cause of a hangover.

I find The Ordinary Caffeine dries the under-eye area very much. Love Deciem products, but this one is a NO for me.

The Ordinary Caffeine reduces puffiness for me, and of course, who doesn’t like the price.

I like the Caffeine Solution. Have had it in my inventory since summer. Stopped using it. However, I noticed that my eyes were acting up due to whatever reason. My eyes simmered down in puffiness and look so much better.

Caffeine Solution doesn’t do absolutely anything to me except dry my skin! Worse product of The Ordinary I have ever tried!
