Eye Serum: The Ordinary Caffeine Solution 

The Ordinary Caffeine 5% + EGCG for dark circles, is extremely lightweight and dries out quite quickly.

I mean the skin absorbs the product really quickly and will work pretty fine for superficial dark circles.

This eye serum is indicated for everyone, but if your skin is dry, it may dry out your skin a little bit.

Moisturizer: The Natural Moisturizing Factors + HA

The Ordinary

The ordinary moisturizer protects the outer layer of the skin leaving it hydrated at the same time.

It is indicated to all skin types and you can include it to your daily and night routine.

If you are like me and sometimes avoid applying moisturizers because you don’t like sticky creams, you may like this one.

The Ordinary SPF

Don’t forget to seal your regimen with SPF even on rainy days to protect your skin from sun damage and free radicals.

The Ordinary Mineral UV Filters SPF 15 with Antioxidants protect skin from pollution and uv rays, help with hypersensitivity and aid with scarring.
