With a light texture, The Ordinary Caffeine Solution 5% + EGCG 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 derived from green tea 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.

Important notes about use of The Ordinary Caffeine Solution 5% + EGCG: 

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. This serum is supplied in UV-protective packaging, as EGCG is sensitive to light.

We suggest this product be used within 12 months after opening


All of our products are filled/measured by weight/volume so the product is correctly filled to 30 ml. The packaging does not accurately reflect the size of the fill. However, this is intentional as some air must be allowed at the top for the product to actually close.

Punching myself with joy
When you receives comments such as 'have you been punching yourself in the eye's' or 'Do you you know your eyes are black?' - You know it's time to cut the sill...

Most Helpful Criticism

‘Meh’
I love products from The Ordinary, but this one to me isn’t a must have. It’s nice and cooling to help waken tired eyes, but I really didn’t notice a difference...
  1. Good

    I have been using this for a couple of weeks now and wasn’t convinced it was really doing anything. And then today, after having a very bad night’s sleep, I noticed, while doing my skin routine, that my bags weren’t as dark or as deep as usual! I use it in the morning under my concealer and also at night.
  2. Great moisturiser

    This is one of the few eye products that I actually used the whole bottle. It's a great moisturiser for the delicate eye area. I'm not sure if it helped my dark circles though (to be fair I'm not sure anything will).
  3. Made the skin under my eyes very sensitive

    This product may have lightened up the dark circles under my eyes and reduced some of the puffiness bite after using it for a month I noticed the area around my eyes was getting paper thin. I have eye allergies and rub them a lot and normally that doesn't cause any problems but last week after rubbing them the whole area because started to split and turn red and itchy .... I've had to use cortisone creams to heal the skin that has become fragile from using this.
  4. Punching myself with joy

    When you receives comments such as 'have you been punching yourself in the eye's' or 'Do you you know your eyes are black?' - You know it's time to cut the silliness and seek an ultimate saviour! Five days in and I have already noticed great results - less puffiness and dark under-eye circles noticeable better. The value is also a great bonus
  5. Love this

    This has worked really well on the dark circles under my eyes. Love this product.
  6. Best on puffiness

    At 48 I've tried dozens of products over the years (mostly high-end French brands like Payot & Clarins) & the only product that came close to this for effectiveness was the La Prarie skin caviar eye gel however it is very expensive & not as effective on puffiness. This is the only product that has noticeably shrunk the bags under my eyes to the extent that I've had many people comment on it.
    The only slight negative it that it's not particularly moisturising but I can live with that.
    Will 100% continue to use this.
  7. ‘Meh’

    I love products from The Ordinary, but this one to me isn’t a must have. It’s nice and cooling to help waken tired eyes, but I really didn’t notice a difference after using it.

    It’s well priced though and may work better for others?!
  8. The Ordinary is just that, ordinary

    I don’t get the hype around this brand and it’s product, I assume it comes from marketing and the low price.

    I found this product watery or that it moisturised the area, if anything, I found it drying.

    I would rather pay a bit more money for a eye cream.

    Definitely would not recommend or repurchase.
  9. Brightens eyes

    I have definitely seen an improvement in the darkness and puffiness under my eyes since using this product. I use it at night and you only need a tiny amount. It absorbs well and is pleasant to apply. Very affordable for what it does.
  10. Results = Soft Skin

    This is the first time I am trying an eye cream and I chose this brand based on the affordability and good reviews. I've been using the product for one week and haven't noticed much of a difference yet. I'll definitely continue using it as I'm sure I need to allow more time to see results. It has left my skin feeling really soft which is great.
  11. Seems to do nothing

    Very thin and seems to have had no impact on my dark circles. Does feel nice a cool when you put it on tho so would probably help with puffiness.
  12. It seems to act the same as an oil

    I've been using this as part of a wider Ordinary face routine and to be honest it seems like overkill after I've already put face oil on. I haven't noticed much of a difference and the oil collects around the bottle and dries up.
  13. Does nothing

    Ive used about two thirds of a bottle and it’s made no difference whatsoever. It’s done nothing for my dark circles or puffiness.
  14. Satisfied with this eye serum

    First of all, this lasts for months and months! You only need a drop and the price is so inexpensive this should be a massive incentive to purchase on its own.
    I've been pretty happy with this and would definitely consider purchasing it again. I like the texture of the serum and how my eyes feel hydrated but not greasy or overclogged.
    Have I thought "omg wow, this has changed my life?" No, but I've been really satisfied with the hydration and keeping fine lines under control
  15. Part of my daily routine

    I've always had dark eye circles so decided to give this a go. Very pleased with the results and now use daily. You don't need to use much and it absorbs into the skin quickly without residue. Also love that I can use it under make up.
  16. Feels lovely

    Have been using this product for around 4 months now and have repurchased my second bottle.

    I wanted a lighter undereye serum which would help smooth my under eyes and this product delivers on that. I use it in the morning and night and have not noticed it impacting my makeup, however, if you do use too much and/or don't let it soak into the skin it can ball up under concealer.

    I don't believe anything but a good nights sleep and some good genetics will truly help reduce the appearance of dark circles, so I would not recommend if that's what you're wanting it for.

    But if you're looking for a nice light eye serum to give your under eyes a little TLC then would recommend giving it a try.
  17. Good for dark circles

    This product is okay. I wouldn't rave about it but I do think it helps my husband's dark circles. Only thing is he is hopeless when it comes to remembering to apply it and you need to be consistent with these products. I wouldnt repurchase.
  18. Not convinced

    So this didn't work on my skin, I used a drop for each eye area for a few weeks. I don't have severe dark circles, but my eyes definitely get puffy. This did not really help with the puffiness. I noticed when I applied this with a metal applicator (not included) it did reduce some of the bags, but that was because of the massaging motion, not the serum itself.

    This also gets kind of gross and clumpy around the rim of the bottle, I'm not sure what ingredients cause it to do so, but you need to be careful to wind it down tightly
  19. Great for dark circles!

    I have very dark circles and can often react to products near my eyes but this product has not only reduced the puffiness but I haven’t had any reactions! I’m loving this!
  20. LOve is product! It really works!

    In love! I apply morning n night. I have massive dark bags! I tried this on a whim as for the price it couldn’t possibly do anything right?! Wrong it refreshed my under eye area, just don’t get in ur eyes lol. I apply under my makeup n blends fine. I will buy more! N for the price I can afford to
