Ever since I was a child, I loved to make people feel and look beautiful.

BAZAAR’s 2019 Anti-Aging Awards – Our Favorite Picks!

It was just the other day that I saw sheer happiness in my mom’s eyes after she used a skincare product we recommended (purchased for her). It was at that very moment that I thought back to why I started Cheeky Complexion in the first place & it was exactly THAT! It has never been about trying to appear younger, it has always been about feeling your most beautiful at any age! And we had helped accomplish that with my pride & joy, my mom & I couldn’t have been happier!

We sincerely hope that Cheeky has helped you feel your most beautiful. A lot of the times, when it comes to products and recommendations, we actually haven’t tried them all. BUT we rely on knowledge, research, feedback, among other things to ultimately recommend them to you. I am not the most confident person on this planet, but I do feel my most confident when it comes to product recommendations & knowing which products & services we should be trusting when it comes to our skin’s health. Not to toot my own horn of course, but it’s something that will ultimately benefit YOU and that’s why we’re here.

I don’t know about you, but when I search for a product or service (related to anything, not just skincare), I’m typically looking for the BEST. And one of my favorite things is to find organizations/publications that release their ‘Best of Awards’ recommendations. It’s like a rush that we get. These are often the BEST of the best products & then we get to take the time to go through them and see which are our personal favorites.

In an effort to get the same wonderful reaction from you, that we got from my mom, I wanted to introduce to you some of our favorites from Harper’s BAZAAR’s 2019 Anti-Aging Awards.

There are over 50 products that were expertly selected by dermatologists, makeup artists, beauty editors & influencers that not only perform, but prove that age is just a number!  Here are some of our very favorites:
