the importance of eye cream

So I was thinking this morning as I was going through my morning ritual of potions and lotions, how important eye cream really is. I also wish that I had been told that at a very early age.....like 7. When the skin is so beautifully full of collagen and not a wrinkle is to be found anywhere. But alas, when I was growing up nobody even used sunscreen let alone eye cream. So now I am burdened with lovely crows feet or more eloquently put, laugh lines. Not that they bother me so much but as you already know, you can't cover them up with makeup. You can "diminish the appearance" of them and "buff them out" but once you own them, they're yours forever. So here's the thing, eye cream. Now and forever. The skin around the eye is more delicate and needs special attention. Sometimes it is darker and sometimes it is puffy. Sometimes, and most times, it is dehydrated and if you want to wear concealer(as you now know is so important) you definitely need to wear eye cream under it so the pigment won't "grab". Philosophy even came out with one for all eye needs called "eye hope" that is absolutely fab and doesn't require hope-it truly works. How simple is that?! It has two anti aging ingredients to stop more problems arising. Again, what's going on under your makeup is just as important as what's going on on top!
