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

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 as a result of the 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.

Caffeine Solution Reviews

Here are some of the things people are saying about The Ordinary Caffeine on Instagram and feel free to leave your own reviews and chat with others directly who have used it.

It reduces my eye bags, gone through a few bottles already.

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

I think most people expect it to improve lines around eyes but it’s actually better to use when you have big eyes cause of a hangover.

It dries the under eye area very much. Love Deciem products but this one is a NO for me.

It seems to really reduce puffiness for me and of course who doesn’t like the price.

I like it. Have had it in my inventory since summer. Stopped using it, however, noticed under my eyes were acting up due to whatever reason. Remembered about this little goody abs voila. Eyes simmered down in puffiness and look so much better.

Doesn’t do absolutely anything to me, except drying my skin! Worse product of The Ordinary I ever tried!

Love it!
