Your daily dose of Caffeine 5% + EGCG

Cardea AuSet

Serious brand love, right now! The Ordinary + all their serums at affordable (and we really mean affordable) prices.

The recent months have been crazy here at CardeaHQ and I went on a mission to find a product that worked on my problem area – my puffy under eyes. I’ve used many fussy lotions, masks and cooling gels that claim to reduce puffiness, but now I’ve found the secret.

The Ordinary Caffeine Solution 5% + EGCG. This Serum contains caffeine: an antioxidant that firms, tightens, and brightens the under-eye area and Epigallocatechin Gallatyl Glucoside (EGCG): a compound found in green tea leaves that provides antioxidant support. I noticed firmer and tighter skin after the first application and continue to see results daily. It is recommended to massage a small amount under the eye once in the morning and again at night. I wait a moment or two before applying my regular moisturizer and then *voila* my new beauty ritual is complete.  

Now, since I’ve mentioned brand love and price point, I should mention that this serum costs only ***JAW DROP*** $6.70 at the Canadian retailer Deciem. The Ordinary offers a range of serums at affordable price points because their mission is to offer clinical formulations with integrity, as stated on their website. Every product formulated by The Ordinary only has the necessary vitamins and retinoid, holding their products to the highest standard.

If you’ve fallen in love with the idea of The Ordinary, check out their website. They’ve taken all the work out of guessing which product combinations will give you your desired results and compiled everything into a regimen guide. I’m definitely adding a few more serums to my cart!
