There’s technically no wrong way to do skincare, but when it’s an area as delicate as your eyes, we like to err on the side of caution. You never know how much damage you can do until it’s too late to reverse it. As much as eye cream helps, it’s how you apply it that could make the biggest difference.

So, to settle the confusion once and for all, here’s the definitive step-by-step on how you should really be using your eye cream.


Dear Klairs has been a skincare mainstay for most of us here at BeautyMNL HQ, so we were over the moon when they dropped their first ever eye cream—the Fundamental Nourishing Eye Butter.
In true Dear Klairs fashion, this formula was designed with the utmost care and intention, starting with the ingredients. Made with sunflower seed oil, it provides deep hydration to delicate skin without any greasiness, despite its rich, velvety texture. It’s also loaded with peptides, which plump up dull and saggy skin to ward off stubborn fine lines.


STEP 1: Dot the eye cream below your undereyes. Apply it to the full length of your eye, and even past the outer corners, to make sure you target the area where crows’ feet would normally form. STEP 2: Dot the eye cream across your brow bone, right beneath your eyebrows. Make sure to avoid your lids. STEP 3: Dot the eye cream above your brows. This area may seem negligible, but your brows move with every facial expression you make, so that area is just as prone to wrinkles as any other. STEP 4: Use your ring finger to gently tap the cream into your skin until fully absorbed. STEP 5: Once the cream has fully absorbed, use multiple fingers to tap in a “piano playing” motion around your eyes. This will help increase blood circulation to the area.

These may seem like a lot of extra steps, but your future bright-eyed self will thank you for it!

The Dear Klairs Fundamental Nourishing Eye Butter is available on BeautyMNL for P1,230. Shop it right here!
