Eye cream with caffeine? — The Bump
2nd Trimester

Eye cream with caffeine?

Hi everyone,

 I did a Google search but have found some conflicting evidence, I'm wanting to use a new eye cream I bought but it contains caffeine. I know we need to watch our caffeine intake but I'm wondering if topical creams would produce the same result? And if there's enough caffeine in it that it wouldn't be safe? Any thoughts/comments would be appreciated in advance. Thank you! 

Re: Eye cream with caffeine?

  • First off, ask your doctor.

    Also, how much caffeine is in the eye cream? Unless it's a ridiculous amount like 1000mg of caffeine per gram of eye cream, I'm guessing it's not a big deal. 

    But again, ask your doctor.

    This is brilliant. It wakes you up and makes your eyes puffy simultaneously!

    @stassischroeder isn’t 1000 mcg = 1g? :wink: and if this really were pure caffeine in lotion form you could have to use 200g which is like 8 oz of cream at once to exceed the recommended dose of caffeine per day. That’s like 8 jars of eye cream.

    Yup. I wanted to keep it in mg terms since the caffeine consumption recommendations are in mg (usually recommended at 200mg>). But, the fact that 1000mg = 1g did cross my mind!
