On top of Dawn Zulueta's four-word beauty advice is "Use Eye Cream Daily."
Because the skin around your eyes is thinner, and has minimal oil glands to keep that tiny area naturally hydrated.
It's also one of the first to show signs of stress and aging in form of eye bags, puffiness, discoloration, and fine lines.
In short, it needs extra TLC regardless of your age.
In fact, as soon as Cheska Garcia-Kramer began wearing makeup, she had made eye cream part of her nightly beauty ritual.
Now here's a list of eye-cream brands recommended by the celebs themselves.
1. SK-II Essential Power Eye Cream, P5,800
Bianca Gonzalez's regimen is pretty simple: cleanse, tone, moisturize, and apply eye cream.
On her blog iamsuperbianca.com, she mentioned two brands: Olay Total Effects and SK-II.
She trusts the latter for her eye cream.
It is soft, light, and easily absorbed by the skin.
It also claims to make three crucial points around the eyes—the eyelids, the under eye area and the eye corners—firmer in two weeks.
2. African Botanics Marula Botanical Eye Serum, P4,000
A product of a Los Angeles-based natural and non-toxic skin care company, it's part of Kim Jones's nighttime beauty routines, according to StyleBible.ph.
Based on the reviews, it delivers instant results. It immediately lifts, tightens, smoothens, and treats puffiness, dark circles, and wrinkles.
Its active ingredient is Marula oil, which was extracted from the fruit seed kernels of Marula trees in South Africa, and rose otto, which is said to be a rejuvenating oil.
3. MAC LIGHTFUL VIBRANCY EYE CREAM, P3,000
This quick fix eye cream supposedly reduces "puffiness and under-eye shadows while imparting a bright natural radiance to the entire eye area,"thanks to its vitamin C.
On Instagram, Coleen wrote, "LOVE the Vibrancy eye cream!!! It helps quite a lot, especially on my #puyat days."
4. NUXE NIRVAANEQUE YEUX 1st WRINKLES SMOOTHING EYE CONTOUR CREAM, P2,800
This French brand was recommended by beauty columnist/model Rissa Mananquil-Trillo in her Philippine Star column.
She told her reader, "It contains hyaluronic acid, which is amazing in holding in and attracting moisture to the skin, so it instantly smoothens visible wrinkles.
"Your skin appears relaxed and hydrated, making you look more radiant and less stressed as well."

5. L'OREAL REVITALIFT LASER X3 ANTI-AGING TRANSFORMING EYE CREAM, P2,200
On Instagram, Dawn mentioned using it every night.
"Found out that it has #Caffeine that helps to depuff my eyes. It's relaxing, especially the morning after a tiring shoot."
Aside from caffeine, it has Adenosine, which refines the skin texture, Pro-Xylane, which stimulates skin fiber synthesis to retighten the eye contours."
6. POND'S AGE MIRACLE FIRM AND LIFT EYE CONTOUR LIFTER, P495
Cheska Garcia-Kramer likened it to a "machine when you go to a derma...but you have it in the comfort of your own home and you can do it every day, and it's within your budget."
That's because its uniquely-shaped cooling applicator is designed to firm sagging eye contours and reduce puffiness under the eye.
7. OLAY EYE CREAM AND SERUM, starting P600
The White Radiance can reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles, and make the eye more radiant looking.
The Total Effects supposedly treats the appearance of dark circles, crow’s feet, and lines. Its formula also has cooling cucumber extract and soothing aloe vera for visibly younger-looking skin above and around the eyes.
The Regenerist Revitalising Eye Serum has Amino-peptide Complex that helps renew skin’s surface around the eye area.
A few stars in their 20s like the Total Effects range, while some celebs in their 40s swear by the Regenerist range, thus automatically making eye cream/serum part of their beauty routine.
Start young, think of it as an investment for the future of your skin.
