Reduce dark circles, under-eye bags, and puffiness with this targeted eye serum.

Reduce dark circles, under-eye bags, and puffiness with this targeted eye serum.

This treatment visibly reduces the appearance of dark circles, under-eye bags, and puffiness in the eye contour area.

  • Caffeine: an antioxidant that firms, tightens, and brightens the under-eye area
  • Epigallocatechin Gallatyl Glucoside (EGCG): a compound found in green tea leaves that provides antioxidant support

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. 


HOW TO USE: Massage a small amount into the area around your eyes in the morning and at night.

    Returns & Exchanges

    Once products leave the Socialite Beauty warehouse, all sales become final. Many products do not come with sanitary seals making it unsafe to put them back on the shelves. We want you as our customer to feel secure you're getting brand new, unused products from us. Because skin can take some time to adjust to new products as well as to detox from any changes, it is best to allow 2-3 weeks of use to see how your skin truly takes on new items. Sometimes a few uses alone is simply not enough time to let the new products get to work. If your product does have a seal and you would like to return it, please notify us via email if you will be returning a product you have purchased ( and include images of the sealed product. Provide your invoice number and reason(s) for the return/exchange. Once merchandise has arrived back to us, we will issue a refund minus return shipping cost.

    Please notify us via email if you will be returning a product you have purchased at your invoice number and reason(s) for the return/exchange. Once merchandise has arrived back to us, we will issue a Socialite Beauty Gift Card.

    It actually worked.

    I've wasted so much money on under eye creams and serums trying to reduce the darkness under my eyes. I used this Caffeine + EGCG twice a day as directed. It took about a month, then what a difference. Every morning I use it, I see a visible reduction in darkness under my eyes after several minutes. When I run out, I definitely notice it in the mirror.

    A warning to sensitive skin owners

    I bought this product in the hopes of perhaps diminishing my under eye circles. Having done a patch test, (and not reacted to it) I decided to continue on with trying the product. Unfortunately after 3-4 days of use it produced chemical like burns to my under eyes, stinging pain, redness, peeling burnt skin, much like the symptoms of a very bad sunburn. It's quite uncomfortable, and any product whatsoever applied to the area is very painful. I do have sensitive skin regardless, but I think that if you also have sensitive skin perhaps don't try this product out. Hopefully I wont have permanent light scarring on the delicate skin of my under eyes, but only time will tell I guess. I wouldn't recommend this product if you have sensitive skin.

    Caffeine for Eyes

    The solution feels good. I'm not sure it's making a difference. I'm going to try using it on one eye so I can compare.
