The Ordinary Caffeine Solution 5% + EGCG

$12.70

DESCRIPTION

This serum reduces appearance of eye contour pigmentation and of puffiness.

Why We Love It

This antioxidant-packed serum is lightweight and great for those mornings when things are looking a bit puffy! 

This light-textured formula contains an extremely high 5% concentration of caffeine, supplemented with highly-purified Epigallocatechin Gallatyl Glucoside (EGCG). 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. 

Notes: 

1. Hollowness in the eye contour as a result of 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.

ROUTINE

Apply to eye are after cleansing and toning. 

HOW TO APPLY

Massage a small amount onto the eye contour AM and PM. If irritation occurs, cease use and consult a physician. Use only as directed on unbroken skin.

THE FORMULA FOCUS INGREDIENTS

HYALURONIC ACID

A naturally occurring gel-like substance which forms a water-rich reservoir on the skin's surface for long-term hydration.

CAFFEINE

Caffeine, when applied topically, constricts the blood vessels and helps reduce inflammation and puffiness. It also tightens and brightens the skin, reducing wrinkles and visibly smoothing away cellulite on the body.

EGCG

It is a unique and potent extract of green tea called Epigallocatechin-3-gallate, but more commonly known as EGCG. It's an active polyphenol, a fantastic antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and anticarcinogenic agent.
