Unfortunately, this gave me a severe reaction that a patch test could not have foreseen. This irritated the capillaries under my eyes so much that they ended up bleeding. I started getting bruises under my eyes which I did not immediately relate to this product. When I finally caught on the bruises stopped. It's not for people with thin, sensitive undereyes.

The ordinary caffeine solution was the first product that I have tried for my little dark circles, and I have to say that it did something after a few days of use. I could see a slight brightening effect. I can't tell if it's working for puffiness, but if you have dark circles, you should give it a try. As it is very affordable, and you can't go wrong. But it is sooooo drying even with a moisturizer on top! Read more

First of, this product does very little/next to nothing for dark circles. I don't really get puffy eyes, but I have a feeling that the Caffeine Solution would help with it. It's drugstore-priced even in Austria, where no makeup brand I want ever seems to ship to, so I'd say give it a go.

I've found my undereyes flaky and dried out after putting to much product on. One …

I need something light and hydrating to use something under my eyes since it helps to have a good canvas for a concealer. I have huge purple-bluish hereditary circles that I cover pretty much every day. I know that no skincare can help me with them so I don't expect this from the serum. It does hydrate and doesn't leave any greasy residue. This serum is a thick transparent liquid with a …Read more

I'm on the fence about this. If I could give 2.5 lippies I would.

I noticed that yes, it got rid of dark circles. It was hydrating and refreshing to my undereye area. For less than $10, this was quite an effective product.

However that's where the pros end. I started noticing that it was doing something ugly to my broken capillaries. I don't have a lot of visible …

Thin gel like consistency. Absorbs easily, feels nice and cooling. The assistant in Deciem was clear that this product would only give a temporary effect for a couple of hours but it sadly didn't absolutely nothing in diminishing my dark circles.

I really like this product! I was sceptical at first, but it really helped brighten up area around my eyes. But the reason I purchased it was to help with puffiness I have after having under eye fillers.
It works, will buy again.

I bought a number of The Ordinary products on line in the hope that they would work , even tho they were quite inexpensive.

I loved them all, and bought another group three weeks, All of which I also adore.

Having tried Every eye product ever produced, I find their Caffeine Eye Gel superb. Just make sure your face is dry around your eyes, apply it, and then hold it a bit taught …

While I thought I noticed my eyes seemed less puffy while using The Ordinary Caffeine/EGCG serum, I wasn't 100% sure if my mind was playing tricks on me. But the hunch was strong enough that I continued applying it every week day before work.

Yesterday I was in a rush to get the door for a hair appointment, and while I did the rest of my skincare/makeup routine, I forgot to use the …

this made such a huge difference to my undereye puffiness....i literally saw my puffiness disappearing as it dried. I have been using the clinelle firming eye serum which also works great, but layering the caffeine solution underthis seem to amp up its efficacy.
I don't recommend using it on its own especially for people with dry skin. If your eye cream hasnt been working the way you …
