Too young for wrinkles?

This is sponsored content BlogHer and Olay.

Evidently, you are never too young to get wrinkles.

I think the ones around the eyes are the ones that really do a number on you. Well, at least me. I don't use waterproof mascara or eyeliner, but yet I always have a hard time getting my eye makeup off! Therefore, I rub my eyes too much. I know this. I've been wanting to change this. I've needed to make some adjustments to my skin routine since pregnancy.

As you may remember from this  post, the color of the skin on my face definitely changed some. Along with the color changing, I'm pretty sure I developed some crow's feet over the summer. When we were in the hospital with Cohen, we slept VERY little. If that's what aged my eyes, I'm totally fine with that. The lack of sleep since then, I wish I didn't have. Between rubbing my eyes to remove my makeup, the hormonal change by body is going through and the emotions I've endured, my skin is needing some TLC.

I need to find a way to get my eye make up off in a gentle fashion. I need to moisturize the eye area because I know it's very delicate and probably needs more TLC than most areas.



I've been continuing to use my Olay Cool Effects Total Hydration. So far, I've been using it around my eyes and I do feel it's keeping the area smooth.

Do you want to win a $100 Visa Gift Card for some facial TLC?


Tell me - Do you use your facial moisturizer all over your face, or do you use a different one on your eyes?

I've been using the same moisturizer around my eyes as I use on the rest of my face and on my neck and chest. But as I get closer to 30 than I am to 20 (yikes!) I've been noticing that, like you said, the skin around my eyes seems to need a little more TLC. If I don't get lucky & win this giveaway I am definitely going to be buying this product for myself!
