so a recent kardashian family post has kendall and kylie jenner, 15 and 13, spilling out their beauty secrets and stressing the importance of their using eye creams to prevent wrinkles and damage around the eyes. is it just me or is that a bit tooo early to be thinking about such preventative measures?

i have been thinking about this for a while and at 24 when i consulted a Sephora worker i was told 24 is too young to be using anti-aging eye creams because if i start now my skin would get used to them by the time i reaaally needed the beauty boost. having spent my childhood and teens abroad sunscreen was unheard of and i have spent summers happy and bare faced getting wonderful egyptian tans under the sweltering heat. while i'm told i look a lot younger than my 24 years getting carded and stuff still. however, since i turned twenty i have seen wrinkles forming under my eyes when i smile. one large line under each eye and accompanying faint tiny lines around it. i am pretty freaked out. after i turned twenty i started using sunblock -not as regularly as i liked but i did have it in store and used it during vacay to florida or something. it made my face greasy so i quit using it during college. i had sunglasses at one point but i haven't worn sunglasses for at least over 3 years now. i'm now thinking about using eye creams and am wondering if they are worth it at all?

in your experience, opinion- are eye creams worth the hype? do they actually make a difference? when do you start wearing them? do you apply it before or after sunscreen?

I don't think they are worth it. Just another item women "need", according to cosmetic companies. I think the same stuff you use as a moisturizer should work on the eyes, unless you have some sort of skin condition where you have to use different types of lotions.

Kendall and Kylie don't know JACK. They just see older women use it, and think that it is a "must have" for all women, and wish to appear more mature.

A waste of $ generally, just use anti aging stuff and regular moisturizer on your eye area.
