Wake Up Call: Our 4 Favorite Caffeinated Skin Care Products
There’s no mistaking the jolt of energy we get from a morning cup of caffeinated coffee. Caffeine—found naturally in plants, like tea leaves and coffee beans—stimulates our central nervous system, which can essentially wake us up when we’re feeling sleepy. When used in skin care, caffeine can have a similar effect on the surface of the skin, which is why its most often used in eye creams. Give your skin a jolt with our four favorite caffeinated skin care products.

This eye roller features a gel that instantly cools and refreshes tired eyes, especially when you store it in the fridge. This formula with vitamin C—an antioxidant—mint, caffeine, and a micro-stimulating roller ball applicator, the gel helps to temporarily reduce the appearance of puffiness under the eyes and deliver a brighter, more awake look.
Lancôme Bienfait Multi-Vital Eye SPF 28
Any girl on the go will tell you, a product that pulls double duty is a must-have.
