So I just turned 23 and I've never had major wrinkling or line issues on my face. I look a lot younger for my age and I would like to keep it that way. However, recently, probably in the past couple of weeks I've noticed that I've developed fine lines under my eyes. It didn't bother me at first because sometimes, I guess if I don't hydrate well enough I get lines on my forehead (they're only noticeable to me really close up in the mirror), but they go away after I hydrate, moisturize, and take better care of my skin.
Well, I've been doing that and the lines under my eyes aren't going away. They're very fine and probably only noticeable to me close up but I don't want them to get deeper. I have no idea why they've appeared so suddenly recently but it's starting to bug me. Maybe because I've been having trouble sleeping, but than again, who knows for sure.

I've done a bit of research on eye creams so I would like opinions. I know that Olay is amazing and their products work really well, but it appears that their Definity, Regenerist, and Total Effects lines are mostly for older people who have actual wrinkles. I don't have such severe issues and I've heard countless times that it is bad for young people to use anti-aging products since it thins the skin (or something like that). I am not old and don't have wrinkles so I would like to find eye cream of some sort that is designed for younger skin and helps hydrate/prevent those fine lines from forming or becoming worse.

I thought about getting olay Total Effects Eye Transforming Cream since it seems okay... but it is soooo expensive ($20 for a small 0.5oz tub). It seems hardly worth it, especially since I don't even know whether or not it's right for my skin. I shop at Sally Beauty Supply all the time so I looked at some of the eye creams that they have at more reasonable prices... Of course, once again, most are for eye wrinkles and smoothing out crows feet... I don't have that problem, I just want to prevent that. The only one that is reasonably priced and sounds like it might be worth trying since it got good reviews is Purist Naturals Restoring Gingko Eye Cream. It's about half the price of Olay.

Anyway, does anyone know if it's worth getting one of the two? Or if there are any other better eye creams for young skin? Please let me know because I really don't want the skin to wrinkle and sag any time soon.
Also, I would like something that is reasonably priced, preferably under $20, and also something I can purchase at a store rather than ordering it online.
