The time has come.

I have broken down and bought my first tube of eye cream. To be completely honest, I know virtually nothing about the stuff, so I did some perusing at Wal-Mart {there are sooo many choices out there--who knew??} and this Neutrogena Radiance Cream seemed reasonably priced--so it found a new home in my cart!

I am not worried {yet} about wrinkles, circles, or puffiness, but rather I am interested in keeping my eyes firm and bright and I thought being proactive was better than reactive. As of now, I can't say I notice much of a difference, but I will continue to use it until the tube is gone! I am also going to be reading up on MUA {a make-up forum} to see what their readers/posters recommend. So, I pose this question, does buying eye cream put me in a new age bracket?

Yep! I would say, especially since you are turning 26 this year and passing over the quarter of a century mark and on to the next quarter! BUT WHAT DOES THAT SAY ABOUT ME?! YIKES!!!!!! LOVE MOM

A bunch of us from work went out last night and I didn't get carded! I was mortified. As my 30th birthday is fast approaching, it was a definite confidence killer.

Joi, does not hurt to get ahead of those eye wrinkles and circles, they time flys by anymore. Age is just a number its about how you feel about yourself and health. I need to try some myself i have noticed some wrinkles around my eyes lately, so if you find something that works let me know.

I have to admit... I've been using eye cream since I started college! Juicy Beauty (organic stuff you can get from Sephora) is really great because if the serum gets in your eye it won't burn since it's organic! Also, if you visit the dermatologist, get on Differin. It helps with acne AND wrinkles! Congrats on the new purchase... we are officially OLD!!!

Joi -- Oh tell me about it, hun ;) I bought a generic form of hylexin because I have EPIC dark circles. It works okay, but I still have to use concealer. Good luck with the new product!
