The Ordinary Niacinamide + Caffeine Duo lets you upgrade your skincare routine. Put your skincare in the hands of The Ordinary’s fave skin treatments to experience clearer, brighter and healthier skin. Including a skin treatment and eye serum, this two piece set will bring your skin routine to the next level! 

Why you need it

The Ordinary Niacinamide + Caffeine Duo gives you the opportunity to get healthier, brighter and clearer skin. Including two full size The Ordinary products, this two piece set works to improve the appearance and radiance of the skin.

The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% is a targeted treatment to reduce the appearance of blemishes and congestion for brighter, clearer skin. The high concentration of Niacinamide (also known as Vitamin B3) is combined with Zinc to balance skin's sebum production and in turn improve skin's elasticity by boosting collagen production. Niacinamide also helps to reduce the appearance of enlarged and visible pores thanks to its ability to help restore skin's elasticity. Its ability to help firm and tighten skin can also help with the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles

The Ordinary Caffeine Solution 5% + EGCG is a lightweight eye serum that reduces puffiness and dark circles around the eyes using caffeine and a purified Green Tea Extract (EGCG). Caffeine helps to reduce swelling and constricts blood vessels under the skin, so that skin around the eyes appears tightened, while EGCG has anti-inflammatory properties and is rich in Anti-Oxidants. The formula also contains Hyaluronic Acid and Glycerin to hydrate and moisturise skin.

Key Ingredients

Niacinamide: A form of vitamin B3, niacinamide has a myriad of benefits. It helps in strengthening the skin's barrier function, reducing the appearance of pores, regulating oil production, and minimizing redness and irritation. Moreover, it has brightening properties which can help fade dark spots and hyperpigmentation.

Zinc PCA: This ingredient not only controls sebum production but also acts as an antimicrobial agent, which can be particularly beneficial for acne-prone skin. Its anti-inflammatory properties can soothe redness and irritation.

Caffeine: Known for its stimulating effects when consumed, caffeine, when applied topically, can help reduce puffiness and under-eye bags. It constricts blood vessels, reducing the appearance of dark circles and giving the skin a revitalized appearance.

EGCG (Epigallocatechin Gallatyl Glucoside): This polyphenol is derived from green tea leaves. It's packed with antioxidants which help in combating oxidative stress, providing anti-aging benefits and soothing inflamed skin.


Q: Can I use The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% and Caffeine Solution 5% + EGCG together?
A: Yes, both products can be incorporated into a skincare routine. However, apply them to targeted areas; the Caffeine Solution is for the eye area, and the Niacinamide serum is for the entire face.

Q: In what order should I apply these products?
A: After cleansing and toning, you can apply the Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% serum to your entire face. Follow with the Caffeine Solution, applying it specifically to the eye contour.

Q: Are there any potential side effects when using these products together?
A: Both products are formulated to be gentle, but as with any skincare products, there's always a potential for irritation. If you notice any redness, itching, or other signs of sensitivity, it's advisable to discontinue use and consult with a dermatologist.

Q: Can I use these products with other serums or treatments?
A: Yes, but ensure you layer them correctly (from thinnest to thickest consistency) and be aware of potential ingredient conflicts. When in doubt, it's helpful to patch-test or consult with a skincare professional.

Q: How frequently should I use the Niacinamide + Caffeine Duo?
A: Both products can be used daily, morning and night. However, always monitor your skin's response and adjust usage accordingly.

Q: Are these products suitable for all skin types?
A: Generally, yes. However, individuals with sensitive skin should proceed with caution and might consider patch testing before full application.

Q: Will the Niacinamide serum dry out my skin?
A: Niacinamide is not typically drying. In fact, it can help regulate oil production. However, the Zinc in the formulation can be slightly drying for some. It's a good practice to follow up with a moisturizer.

Q: Does the Caffeine Solution help with dark circles?
A: The Ordinary's Caffeine Solution 5% + EGCG is formulated to reduce the appearance of eye contour pigmentation (dark circles) and puffiness. However, results can vary based on individual skin types and the root causes of the dark circles.
