I don’t think it’s rude. I’d love high end anti-aging products. I’ll trade my brother for your sister.

Girl, Scarlet Johansson was using anti-aging products from the time she was 16! Was she sporting wrinkles then? Heck no! She wanted to get a jump start on preventing them and she hasn’t looked back since!

My sisters and I LOVE LOVE LOVE keeping up-to-date on what is new in the beauty world, be it skincare or make-up and we are constantly sharing or buying new products that are tried and true for one another. I personally would not be offended in the least if my baby sisters bought me anti-aging creams. Those beauty gurus know what they are talking about and would never lead their big sis astray! Nor would they ever try to offend me.

We are blessed with sisters that care for us and so take the gift with gratitude and a grain of salt. Don’t think your sis is telling you that you’re turning into a prune. She is simply sharing some products she thinks you would enjoy and potentially benefit from.

EllyAnne :  I think for close friends and family it wouldn’t be weird at all.  Now if a random coworker bought it for you, I would think that was strange.

I wouldn’t suggest getting anti-aging products for someone as people can get offended. As she’s into skincare, she probably wasn’t thinking about how you look. It was probably something she would have liked to have as a gift herself. As I’m also crazy about skincare and hate if someone guess I’m older (even offended if I don’t get carded), I would be happy if someone gave me those products as a gift as I would like to see if they work well.

I don’t think it’s rude. It’s best to start anti aging skincare, well, before you start aging.

I don’t think it’s rude and I don’t think she intends for her gifts to come off as you’re perceiving them. Maybe have a casual conversation and tell her you’re not as into the anti-aging things but you appreciate the gifts and will give them a shot.

Th early 30’s are when we start to age, so I think it is a great gift. I would not be offended at all.

EllyAnne :  Wouldn’t bother me AT ALL. This sentence says it all “She’s 37 and spends A LOT on skincare plus has botox and is booked to have a skin peel.”

This is her thing. She’s very into skincare, and she’s trying to share that with you. Unless you have always had a difficult relationship, I’d be appreciative. It can’t hurt, and it’s not coming from nowhere, it’s clearly something she’s into.

That said, if you’re truly not into it, you are more than welcome to ship it my way! 😛

EllyAnne :  

Send them to me!  I’love be happy to take them off your hands.  I’ll even cover shipping.

When I was twenty, it hit me that acne was going to go away someday, but wrinkles would be forever.  I started wearing eye cream and moisturizer then and have worn anti aging products since.  Decades later, I am reaping the benefits.  A cosmetic surgeon recently complimented me on my skin.  His opinion means something to me.

I’d be delighted to get good quality skin care products as a gift.

From an acquaintance or a secret santa from someone I barely knew then it could be rude, but I wouldn’t see it as rude from a sister.
