Oh how I love Mother’s Day! A day to celebrate your real life superhero. Especially my mom. Who has been there to nurture me, care for me, love me… and everything in between. Whether you’re a mom to a human, fur baby or whatever else I can’t think of at this very moment, consider this holiday a GREAT way to pamper either yourself or the mom in your life who has stood by you through thick and thin & has loved you no matter what.
Instead of the traditional route of a spa coupon or massage (though both still terrific options) consider doing a skincare gift card or a skin care themed gift set. This way, it’s the gift that keeps on giving & every time your mom uses that product she can think of you!
Whether you’re looking for something safe like a face mask or you know she could use a book outlining the ingredients behind beautiful skin, we have the perfect list for that special mom in your life. And for all you moms, HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY from Cheeky Complexion. (Especially you, mom!)

‘The Jade Facial Roller is an incredible tool for inner and outer beauty. Facial rolling is relaxing and de-stressing. It’s been a beauty ritual since ancient times in China, dating all the way back to the 7th century. Physically, it helps to firm the look of skin through gentle massage. It also aids in supporting the lymphatic system, the body’s main major detoxification system. Metaphysically, jade brings peace and harmony, and is known to help reduce stress.
‘SkinMedica’s TNS Essential Serum features two active formulas that combine to smooth wrinkles and regenerate skin cells for a more youthful appearance. The TNS complex is a protein- and amino acid-rich serum to reduce inflammation and the signs of aging. The APS corrective complex is a mixture of anti-aging ingredients, peptides and antioxidants to strengthen sagging skin. Use this anti-wrinkle serum morning and night after cleansing and toning.’

I used to use the Noni Oil and while I like that, this argan oil seems to be JUST a little more hydrating, so I’m sticking with this guy! Plus, it seems to soak in well enough that I can wear it during the day which is uber helpful with my dry skin. Especially on mornings after I use the GloPro.
‘Triple Lipid Restore 2:4:2 is an anti aging cream formulated with a maximized concentration of lipids: 2% pure ceramides, 4% natural cholesterol, and 2% fatty acids. This unique lipid correction cream contains the first 2:4:2 cholesterol-dominant ratio to help restore skin’s external barrier and support natural self-repair, while potently nourishing aging skin for improvement in the visible appearance of skin smoothness, laxity, pores, and overall radiance.’
When we move to our next Air Force base, I plan to do a little upgrading in my skincare storage department, so I have been holding off on this purchase until then. But this is the perfect little gift for the mom in your life who loves her skincare. Perfect size to store all your masks, eye creams, jade rollers, etc.
