Caffeine is the vasoconstrictor in Eye Wide Open. Allantoin and hyaluronic acid both work to soothe and smooth the skin. Using Eyes Wide Open on ones eyelids will make a small contribution to decreasing puffiness. One must consider that overall fluid intake, sodium intake, and genetics all contribute to lid puffiness. Try applying a cold compress to your closed eyes for 10 minutes prior to applying Eye Wide Open. One can use large cotton rounds soaked with ice water, a cold and wet folded clean wash cloth, or the backs of two spoons that have been chilled in the fridge. DO NOT chill the spoons in a freezer. One doesn't want the spoons to stick to the delicate skin on the eyelids!
