Maybelline introduced Eye Cream in 1955.

Maybelline introduced an Eye Cream in 1955, but at the time women were not aware of how important it was to protect  the skin around the eye from wrinkling.  It was discontinued the next year.

My mother, however started using Maybelline eye cream when I was 8 years old and by the time I was 15, I too was hooked on eye cream - long after Maybelline eye cream was not available.  In fact, interestingly enough, I started using Estee Lauder, Eye Zone, 30 years ago and to my great disappointment, it has just been discontinued.  So, I've switched to la prairie, SWITZERLAND, and I have to say, it's amazing.  If you don't use eye cream it's never to early to start.  Remember, beautiful eyes are your most important feature.
