Who here has ever suffered from dark circles, puffy eyes and fine lines? If you said me, then I can sort of relate with you. More so with the puffy eyes and slight surface of fine lines. The Ordinary is known for its ‘clinical formulations with integrity’ brand. It is part of Deciem’s umbrella that focuses on ‘advanced functional beauty’. I have had an opportunity to test this product that featured at the recent Priceline: The Beauty Prescription event back in March. Continue reading to learn more.
Caffeine Solution 5% + EGCG 30ml $12.70*
The caffeine solution 5% + egcg (epigallocatechin gallatyl glucoside) is described as a light-textured serum that contains 5% concentration of caffeine + a high-purified supplement from green tea leaves. It claims to help reduce the appearance of puffiness and dark circles in the eye contour. Often if you experience shadows, these can be mistaken as dark circles. It is recommended to use a small amount to the eye contour in your morning and night time skincare routines.
This comes in a dark bottle with a dropper. The consistency of this serum is slightly between thin and thick that has no distinctive scent. It feels comfortable and is easily absorbed into skin without leaving any oily reisdue. It is FREE from alcohol, oil, silicone, nut and gluten. It is vegan and cruelty free.
I personally can not fully relate with people who have intense puffy eyes and dark circles as I do not have either of these. However, whenever I experience lack of sleep, I have found that my under eyes appear to be puffy. Within in a few days of using this eye treatment consistently, I have noticed it has helped to minimise the appearance of puffiness under my eyes. I mainly use this once a day depending if my eyes experience any type of puffiness. I also found that it has helped to brighten the eye area and provide hydration. This result will vary from person to person, but in my experience, it has contributed to giving a more awaken look as it continues to hydrate the under eye delicate skin.
