Pond's Age Miracle Dual Action Eye Cream, P499

1. Pond's Age Miracle Dual Action Eye Cream, P499

Why We Like It: This has two different creams for your upper and lower lids. The pink upper-eye cream fights wrinkles and lines for a smoother, lifted look. Meanwhile, the white under-eye brightening cream reduces puffiness and dark circles. The hint of shimmer seems like a cheat to help lighten up dark circles sans concealer, but since it does help, we're not complaining.



What's In It: It contains Intelligent Pro-Cell Complex, which is a blend of retinol, retinol boosters, and alpha-hydroxy acid, and CLA. These ingredients work together to produce and repair collagen, speed up cell turnover, and moisturize your skin.


Available at Watsons


L'Oreal Revitalift Laser X3 Anti-Aging Transforming Eye Cream, P995


2. L'Oréal Revitalift Laser X3 Anti-Aging Transforming Eye Cream, P995

Why We Like It: The cooling applicator is a great way to refresh tired peepers (tip: store it in the fridge to chill it even more!) and get rid of puffiness. The formula is absorbed quickly and doesn't leave any residue at all, so it feels like it's really being absorbed by your skin. We also noticed that our skin felt somewhat tighter immediately after application.


What's In It: The active ingredients are highly concentrated. It contains adenosine to smoothen lines and refine your skin's texture and caffeine to help get rid any swelling under the eye. Just squeeze the tube gently to make sure you don't accidentally put too much over your lids-especially if you have sensitive eyes.

H2O plus Eye Oasis Moisture Replenishing Treatmeant, P1,500

3. H2O Plus Eye Oasis Moisture Replenishing Treatment, P1,500

Why We Like It: It's a refreshing gel (yes, gel!) that feels light, tingly, and refreshing. The non-greasy formula makes it a must for our humid weather and the oil-free formulation won't make your makeup more prone to running, either.

What's In It: It's spiked with a Hydrating Marine Blend that helps optimize the moisture balance on your skin, so that your eyes appear well-restored and the dry cracks are softened. It's a good entry-level product for gals who want to prevent the signs of aging early on.

Avon Anew Genics Eye Treatment, P1,299



4. Avon Anew Genics Eye Treatment, P1,299

Why We Like It:
If your eye area is exceptionally dry and in need of major TLC, then you'll like the thicker formulation of this no-fuss cream. It's a multi-tasker that's built to help minimize lines that are beginning to creep out-as long as you use it twice a day, of course. Try applying it over your brow bone if you need a little lift.


What's In It: Avon formulated the Genics line with YouthGen Technology, which is supposed to help stimulate the "youth gene" and helps our skin cells act younger.

Olay Regenerist Revitalising Eye Serum, P1,099


5. Olay Regenerist Revitalising Eye Serum, P1,099

Why We Like It: If your eyes are prone to irritation, this fragrance-free find works to hydrate and smoothen the delicate eye area without leaving your skin itchy or uncomfortable. Just place small dots around the eye area (under the eyes, outer corners, and top lids), and pat on until thoroughly absorbed.



What's In It: The formula contains amino-peptide complex, which helps renew the skin's surface around the eye area.


Available at Watsons

P2,001 to P3,000


Philosophy Miracle Worker Anti-Aging Retinoid Eye Cream, P2,695


6. Philosophy Miracle Worker Anti-Aging Retinoid Eye Cream, P2,695

Why We Like It:
It significantly reduces the appearance of deeper creases around the eye area and boosts elasticity and firmness. You'll begin to see results after about two weeks, starting with a plumped up and fresher under-eye area.


What's In It: Retinoid, the miracle ingredient, works to promote your skin's elasticity. It's a potent ingredient that can make your skin sun-sensitive, so remember to use sunscreen and avoid harsh rays if you're using this.


Available at the 2/F Mega Fashion Hall, SM Megamall, Mandaluyong City.


Kiehl's Super Multi Corrective Eye-Opening Serum, P2,750


7. Kiehl's Super Multi-Corrective Eye-Opening Serum, P2,750

Why We Like It: No need for separate cream formulas here. This 5-in-1 product boasts that it can visibly lift, firm, smoothen, and restore the youthful shape of the entire eye. It also targets lifting the upper eye area, so if you're worried about the "hooded" effect, then you'll definitely want to invest in this serum. Bonus points for the pump bottle, since it helps keep the serum potent and bacteria-free.


What's In It: Botanically-derived rhamnose is a plant extract that helps reduce the thinning of the eye area and reinforce the skin's structure for a firmer, lifted appearance. It also contains sodium hyaluronate to hold large quantities of water within the skin's surface to smoothen wrinkles and skin illuminating minerals to boost your eye area’s radiance.


Available at Greenbelt 5


P3,001 and up


Lancome Advanced Genefique Yeux Youth activating Eye Cream, P3,245


8. Lancôme Advanced Génefique Yeux Youth Activating Eye Cream, P3,245


Why We Like It: Constantly tired or staying up late? This gel-cream targets fatigue before it can turn into the signs of aging and makes you look as if you slept for an extra three hours. The texture is lightweight, it feels luxe on your skin, and it moisturizes for up to eight hours while protecting your skin from urban pollution.


What's In It: New-generation elastomers and a cocktail of multicolored micro-particles were selected to help provide a soft-focus effect to blur tell-tale lines and wrinkles, and instantly illuminate dark shadows.


Available at Greenbelt 5

Elizabeth Arden Prevage Anti-Aging + Intensive Repqir Eye Serum, P7,350

9. Elizabeth Arden Prevage Anti-Aging + Intensive Repair Eye Serum, P7,350

Why We Like It:
If your work requires you to be out on the field, then you'll want to invest in this serum since it protects against the environmental signs of aging and works to fight free radicals. It's pricey, but a little goes a long way. In just a week, we noticed that fine lines lessened and our skin firmed up around the outer corners-right where it crinkles up when you smile.



What's In It: Since smoke, pollution, and other irritants can accelerate the skin's aging process, this serum contains the single, most powerful antioxidant (in the form of Idebenone technology) to help fight free radicals.


Available at Rustan's Department Store


La Mer The Eye Balm Intense, P10,160


10. La Mer The Eye Balm Intense, P10,160

Why We Like It:
It's got an A-list celebrity following for a reason. This intensive balm comes with a silver-tipped applicator to cool the skin and improve micro-circulation on contact. The rich cream energizes the skin, helping to reduce visible puffiness and conditions the eye area so wrinkles are smoothened. If you can afford to splurge, it's a definite must-have if you neglected your fragile eye area in your 20s.


What's In It: It's powered with a triple concentration of the legendary Miracle Broth, which is a combination of nutrient-rich sea kelp and other natural ingredients that are infused with energies of light and sound to intensify their activity. To reduce visible irritation and puffiness around the eye, it uses Marine De-Puff Ferment (an energy-rich deep sea red algae that grows in the darkest depths of the sea) that works with a rare tourmaline to deliver ingredients deep into the skin's surface.
