Skincare Review: Clarity Rx Sleep It Off and Skin Defense

The products from Clarity Rx promises to be plant-based and results-driven. Made in the USA, they offer sustainable without the use of harsh retinols, benzoyl peroxides, hydroquinone, parabens, sulphates, phosphates, artificial colorants, fragrances, extenders, and fillers. Looking at their side, I got the feel that the brand is straightforward, which I like so I was really excited to review these.

Designed as a natural retinol alternative anti-aging treatment, Sleep It Off ($120) is 21-day at-home skin transformation sleeping mask. It removes rough texture, loss of elasticity, dark spots, fine lines, and wrinkles smoother, firmer, brighter, clearer complexion with blue green algae, b vitamins, amino acids, and extract of ginger and orange.

I am no stranger to a multi-step routine and sleeping masks are part of it. I enjoy its added benefits and I was excited to try this one as it claims to be a retinol alternative. The mask has a faint sweet smell and has a nice slip to the skin. It thicker than most of my sleeping masks but doesn’t feel heavy. It also doesn’t feel like it’s sitting on top of your skin. I also don’t wake up with an overly oily face in the morning. I just have a smooth and glowing complexion the next day. The first few days of trying this, I expected some redness in the cheek area and warmth as I apply the product but it vanished after about a week of use. After 21 days, I noticed brightening and firming in my skin. It also helped even my skin tone a bit. I used this for 21 days straight, stopped using it for two weeks, and got back it again. I was happy to get the same results afterwards. If only it wasn’t so expensive!

After the mask, the Skin Defense Environmental Protection SPF 30 ($32) is meant to be used in the morning. The FDA-approved, broad-spectrum sunscreen promises to be naturally moisturizing, non-irritating, non-sticky, and water-resistant sunscreen. It contains safflower and sunflower oils to nourish, moisturize, and condition the skin.

As someone with oily, finding a correct face spf can be difficult. A small amount can cover my whole face. I like how this doesn’t smell too strong, it’s lightweight, and it doesn’t sting. What I like the most about this is it doesn’t make me oily during the day, which is usually what happens with other sunscreens.

I enjoyed discovering this brand and these products. I would recommend these vegan sleeping mask and spf to anyone looking for anti-aging products and those who want to have brighter, clearer, and protected skin.
