Love it! A drop on one finger and I lightly massage under eyes and on eyelids in morning and it shrinks my bags!
Often I let it soak in and I use a eye moisturizer as well.


This light-textured formula 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 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.

Notes:

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. Supplied in UV-protective packaging as EGCG is sensitive to light.

So I bought this and received it today. I'm not sure if I need to put this on before or after my eye cream...

Probably before.

Put the serum on before the cream. You want to layer your products with the lightest first. I would let it absorb a couple of minutes before going in with eye cream on top.

Yes, before! I put it on as soon as I wakeup. I eat, brush teeth, etc. . . then moisturize face/eyes and do make up.

I'd say after. I use it after wash, but before moisturizer, I don't use toner... But toner would remove it I'd assume unless you spray it, but I still think after is right.


And crappppppp, I just left again today to travel and realized I forgot mine! It's literally my "can't live without" :crybaby:

No word of a lie... I used it for the first time last night (after toner and before my night time serums/moisturizers) and my dark circles look a little lighter!

I'm actually so sad I left mine at home lol
I'd give up most my other items. . . to add insult to injury I also somehow didn't pack my beloved Hourglass concealer. :crybaby:

Oh no! I hate that feeling and that's probably why I over pack! ... I'm going up to a cottage this weekend and taking all my skincare (this included) and I know my friends are going to side-eye me lol
