Caffeine Solution 5% + EGCG

product review positives
šŸŒ· Helps to tighten puffy eyes - I've been testing out this product for around 3 months now and I've come to the conclusion that it's just not for me. It has a really unique texture that's almost thick and gummy- it isn't runny at all and the bottle will last you a long time. The price is very nice considering how long this will last you, I only needed a drop or two for both eyes. It's unscented as well. One thing I will say is that it does tighten up the eyes- I've been using it on days where I wake up with puffy undereyes and after applying this the bags do noticeably reduce.
product review negatives
šŸ‚ Uncomfortable tight sensation šŸ‚ Caused dryness and irritation/breakouts šŸ‚ Tacky finish - The problem is that it FEELS tight. The spots where I apply this feel like they're being pulled, or like the skin is very dry and tight. It's not painful or intolerable, but it is uncomfortable- as somebody with very dry and sensitive skin, I can't stand that sensation. It leaves your skin a bit tacky, which added to the discomfort. On top of that, I began to notice this irritating my skin. If I use this serum for two days in a row, the skin around my eyes begins to feel dry and itchy, and I notice a bit of redness too. Out of curiosity, I tried applying it to my nasolabial folds a couple times to see if the tightening effect would help fine lines, and I ended up getting some small zits there. You may not encounter this issue if your skin isn't sensitive, but the skin around your eyes is so precious and delicate that I can't recommend risking it. I also saw no improvement with pigmentation around the eyes, but that may be something that requires longer usage time.
