Yes. It is rude. BUT since she is super into skincare herself and it sounds like she may be into taking measures to minimize signs of aging on her own face, I bet she just figures that you too may want to try stuff and was trying to do a nice thing for her sister. I wouldn’t read too much into it. If it really bothers you, talk to her.

If someone not into skincare bought them for you, that would be a different issue. 😉

EllyAnne :  If your sister is obsessed with anti-aging skincare for herself then she probably has it in her head that she’s doing you a big favor. Those anti-aging products are preventative, so it’s not about changing your appearance. I’d graciously accept and slather my face in fancy goo on her dime.

I wouldnt be offended and i would love it! A lot of the anti aging products are also really good for general skincare and aging prevention. I’d love to receive some fancy skin care as a present (and I’m almost 10 years younger than you if that makes you feel better).

EllyAnne :  I’d love those gifts! But I’m also going to gift myself some Botox on my next birthday. 

My younger sis isn’t really into makeup, but I buy her products I think she’d like all the time. Not because I think she “needs” makeup, but because I do all the research and try a bunch of products and if I find something I think she’ll use, I buy it for her since I know she won’t spend the $$ on herself. She has never seemed offended and often thanks me for keeping her stocked so she doesn’t have to worry about it!

I would be happy because anti aging products are expensive and I started using them in my early twenties for preventative reasons!

Everyone between the ages of 30 and 49 has some line about how they look a few years younger than they are. In any case, it’s much easier to prevent wrinkles than treat them later, as your sister can tell you. I think anti-aging products are perfectly appropriate for 30-something year old sisters who can realistically discuss such things.

EllyAnne :  Well you seem determined to be offended by it, so I guess be offended by it? I don’t mean that to be snarky, but several have commented that they wouldn’t take issue with it– but it clearly bothers you.

I wouldn’t be offended by it, I’d actually appreciate it since usually it’s so expensive. I’m 24 and use anti-aging moisturizers and eye creams. Anti-aging isn’t what you use because you look wrinkly/old looking, you use it to prevent.  Anti-aging products won’t do much good if you already have wrinkles etc, there are other products for that 🙂

EllyAnne :  I wouldn’t be offended simply because she spends so much time and money on anti-aging/skin care stuff on herself, so she probably thought it was the best gift ever since she loves it so much. So accept the products and use them! it’s never too early to do preventative skin care! If you really don’t want the stuff then let her know that you’ve got enough products that will last a while, so she’ll stop buying them for you.
