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.

7 reviews for Caffeine + Peptides

  1. Ofentse Molatlhegi (verified owner)

    I bought the 5ml for starters and it’s been a month using it so even a small one can last you for a month since I only use it around my eyes and I’m consistent with it cause I naturally have dark circles/ pigmentation so my eyes haven’t entirely lightened up to where i want but so far I can see the progress slowly so

  2. andrieszb (verified owner)

    I am absolutely thrilled with this caffeine serum! It has truly transformed my skin and made it look and feel more energized and refreshed than ever before. After just a few day of using this serum, I could see a noticeable difference in the appearance of my skin.
