YBF! YBF! YBF! It's become a household name at Truth In Aging. So when Darrell Owens, founder of Your Best Face Skincare, gave us news of the beloved brand's latest product, saying that we were thrilled doesn't even begin to describe how we felt. But, could YBF top Correct ($150 in the shop), Balance ($45 in the shop), Prep ($80 in the shop), and my treasured Private Reserve ($75 in the shop)? I am happy to report that Your Best Face has done it again! Introducing Your Best Face Clarity ($9-40) - the latest addition to the already phenomenal YBF line!

YBF Clarity combines French clay and Japanese green tea (matcha) alongside YBF's usual lineup of powerful antioxidants, including spin trap, Lipochroman-6 and vitamin e succinate, as well as vitamins B5 and C, to nourish, brighten, and protect skin. It is packaged in single sachets to preserve the freshness of the ingredients, particularly the high-grade matcha used in formulating this detoxifying mask.

Using YBF Clarity is simple and a bit relaxing, but you’ll need a little bit of time. The packaging instructs to mix one sachet of Clarity with two teaspoons of water and one teaspoon of honey. Mix thoroughly and let it sit for 15-20 minutes and apply. As long as you give it enough time to thicken, the mask stays put once applied (though it is still recommended to avoid light clothing while using the mask). After leaving the mask on for  20 minutes, you are to rinse it off using a damp wash cloth (or in the shower).

The results are instant: glowing skin, clear pores, and an overall brighter and renewed complexion. With regular use, my pores have become nonexistent, and any redness or inflammation has disappeared.

This mask is perfect for all ages, whether you are a 60-something with dry, dull skin, a 40-something with hormonal adult acne, or a 30-something trying to keep aging at bay. YBF Clarity is well worth the investment for each mask. And a helpful tip - though each mask is intended for one use, I've found it actually produces too much for a single mask. Instead, I've been using half a sachet and sealing the leftover in an airtight container until my next treatment.
