The Ordinary Caffeine Solution – Everything you need to know before buying

What is The Ordinary Caffeine Solution and what does it do?

The Ordinary says: Caffeine Solution reduces the appearance of eye contour pigmentation and of puffiness. This light-textured formula contains 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 resulting from the structure of sub-dermal tissues like fat and bone can result in visible shadows under the e es. This shadow, which is not 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.

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 m h. 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, noticed under 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 s in! Worse product of The Ordinary I ever tried!

Love it!
