This light-textured solution contains a 5-percent caffeine concentration, as well as highly distilled Epigallocatechin Gallatyl Glucoside (EGCG) from green tea leaves. Independent studies have shown that applying caffeine or EGCG to the eye contour may help reduce the appearance of puffiness and dark circles. Caffeine has also been shown to reduce the presence of cellulite in other studies.
1. Clear shadows under the eyes may be caused by hollowness in the eye contour caused by the arrangement of sub-dermal tissues such as fat and bone. This shadow, which should not be confused with dark circles, is unaffected by topical skincare, including this formula.
2. Fat deposits under the eye contour may result in permanent puffiness. Topical skincare, including this formula, will not help with this sort of deposit.
3. Since EGCG is light-sensitive, it is packaged in UV-protective packaging.
AM and PM, massage a small amount into the eye contour. If annoyance occurs, discontinue usage and seek medical advice. On unbroken skin, use only as guided. It is recommended that you test the product on a patch before using it. Keep out of children’s control.

Patch checks are a simple way to see whether you’re likely to have a negative reaction to a new product. Before adding every new product to your routine, it’s a good idea to do a patch test. Based on the type of product, we’ve outlined a general method for performing your own patch test below.
- A small amount of the substance should be applied to a clean region of the upper forearm.
- Keep the place as dry as possible.
- If the product specifies a time limit for use, rinse after the time has passed. Otherwise, wait 24 hours before rinsing.
- Do not use the product if you notice any redness, burning, scratching, blistering, or discomfort at any point during the test.
