Caffeine + Peptides

Dark Circles, Puffiness and Lines


Product Information

An intensive eye serum that expertly targets dark circles and puffiness while addressing fine laugh lines around the eye area. Perfectly created with optimum concentrations to effectively address the three most common eye concerns; puffiness, dark circles and fine lines. Suitable for all ages this eye product delivers, a firmer, brighter eye area with a reduction in wrinkles.

There are four main triggers of Dark Circles

  1. Lymphatic – as a result of poor drainage, a build up of fluids creates the dark circles. Caffeine + Peptides can assist.
  2. Muscular – when there has been a substantial amount of fat loss in the face area, the muscles in the peri-orbital area become visible. These muscles are brown and can present as dark circles. Product application cannot assist.
  3. Pigmentation – is as a result of over active melanocytes. In this case 2% Alpha Arbutin + Hyperbrite Complex can assist.
  4. Vascular – Vasodilation can occur which creates dark circles. Product application cannot assist.

4 reviews for Caffeine + Peptides

  1. IM (verified owner)

    I had very dark circles under my eyes and couldn’t leave the house without wearing concealer or people would comment on how tired I look. Since using this product I can see a drastic improvement, I would recommend this product.

  2. Bayley (verified owner)

    I suffered with severe dark circles under my eyes – this product has completely solved that.
    I use it in conjunction with the copper peptide eye cream – amazing combo.

  3. aali.ismail05 (verified owner)

    The dark circles under my eyes were so dark and embarrassing, and people used to pass comments about it a lot. And then, I heard about Skinfunctional and how their products actually make a difference and decided to try it. I bought the small bottles first (just to be safe). After a week of using this product under my eyes, the difference was amazing. Now, after using this product everyday for +/- 3 months, my dark circles are almost 100% gone. I feel so much more confident about my skin!

  4. Akhona

    I sleep on one side of my face and have a very noticeable line under my eye. I have been applying this product twice a day for the last two months and I can see a noticeable difference in the line. It is less noticeable and I have fewer fine lines under both eyes. Would highly recommend this product. I absolutely cant live without this product.
