Since the beginning of this year I've been seeing this brand called The Ordinary literally everywhere and the reviews about some of their products were more than good. (Later on I understood that the name of the brand is actually DECIEM and The Ordinary is a brand under their umbrella, too complicated I know 😀 Let's just get back to the review, I guess the name of the brand isn't that important lol). It was back in March when I was placing an order from beautybay.com when I spotted that they sell the Ordinary and I just had to add at least one of their products to my basket. After a short search in Google and a quick look at the comments under the products I picked the Caffeine Solution, an eye serum which reduces the appearance of eye contour pigmentation and of puffiness.
I started using it straight away and the first thing that I've noticed was how lightweight the texture is. You literally need a very small drop of the product for the both eyes (btw you only have to apply an eye cream/serum on the the bones around your eyes) and the serum isn't greasy or oily, which means that you can easily apply makeup after that. Now, if you ask me does it reduce the dark circles, I have to be honest with you, it does help but if your dark circles/puffiness are genetic you won't be able to get rid of them with any cream or a serum purchased from the store. You might need doctor visit, diet change, procedure etc. However, as I said the Caffeine Solution does help to reduce the dark circles/puffiness and it also moisturises the area. Btw I am pretty sure that on the top of it you can apply a cream as well. Oh, and l almost forgot to mention that it costs only £6 (AED 29) and it will last you at least 6 months. I am using mine from April, it's end of August now and I still have a half bottle of it, pretty good value for the money, isn't it? So looking forward to purchase and try more of this brand. I will keep you updated.
Lots of love xx
