Oh hey!

I’m on a mission to find anti-aging skincare products that work for desert dry skin (possibly for other skin types too), one that isn’t too harsh and leaves my skin moisturized, but not greasy.

If there is one thing I have regretted doing when it comes to skincare, it’s not getting on the youth Fountain train ages ago.

I could have also done better when it came to using sunscreen, but what did I know!

I’m getting to my late 20’s and fast approaching the dirty 30.

So what better time than now to start packing and investing that coin into taking the best care of my skin.  

The struggle has been real, but here we are with Clef skincare’s Anti-aging Copper peptide face mask and the trehalose hydrating cleansing gel.

Let’s take these two products and completely decode them, what do you say?

I love that it is so gentle yet extremely powerful in its ability to heal my dry, irritated skin.


clef stands for CLean and EFfective and their aim is to bring us stress-free skincare that actually work. Clef products are 100% vegan, Gluten-free, Paraben-free, Phthalates-free, Cruelty-free, and Safe for pregnant women too.

CLEF Anti Aging Copper Peptide Mask

Now she has fast become an essential step in my skincare routine. Mostly because, it acts as an activator for tissue re-modelling and promotes the production of collagen, elastin, proteglycans and glycosaminoglycans.

If you’re a skincare person, then I’m sure you know how expensive copper peptide ingredient products can be on the market.

Copper Peptide is derived from human proteins, just like niacinamide and it helps in repairing and reducing scars and wrinkles. 

The copper peptide molecules are very small, which make it easier to penetrate into our skin, stimulating collagen, regenerating elastin and restoring our hydration level.

In comparism to other face mask, the Clef anti-aging mask contain as much as 30 ml of essence that not only repairs damaged skin (if you have that) but also increase skin firmness, enhances elasticity, restore skin glow and reduce wrinkles and pigmentation.

It’s great for people who experience if you you often sleep late, face stress at work and unhealthy diets.

In the beginning, I was a little skeptical about using this mask because I wasn’t sure if it was dark skin friendly, but my skin has falling deeply in love. So yes, I can say its “Safe for ALL skin types”.

This face mask has No fragrance, No hormone, No alcohol, and No essential oil (which we want love)

 This is everything to me!

CLEF Hydrating Cleansing Gel also contains properties of Trehalose and DNA Repair Complex which help in hydrating, strengthening and protecting our skin from everyday impurities while keeping our skin moisturized.

What it does mainly does is to repair ~ Firm ~Moisturize and also serve as an Anti-aging agent for our skin.


Protects and shields skin cells, especially epidermal cells. Epidermal cells can easily lose moisture and become keratinized under high temperature, cold, dryness, strong ultraviolet radiation, etc., and even die off and cause skin damage. 

In this case, trehalose can form a special protective film on the cell surface layer, keeping the original nutrition and moisture of the skin, and effectively preventing skin aging. Trehalose protects cellular DNA from being damaged by radioactive particles by forming a barrier on the cell wall. 

DNA Repair Complex:

Improves skin function and improves skin repair ability. Moisturising effect, Enhances collagen fiber, Firms skin, Promotes healthy cell growth

It has anti-oxidation, anti-ultraviolet light and anti-radiation effects.

Protects your skin’s natural barrier and cells

It cleanses deeply but leaving your skin moisturized

Other cleansers may have deep cleansing effect too, but most will dehydrate your skin

Therefore, those cleansers are equivalent to dish washers liquid

My thoughts on the cleanser overall is that, it has taken away then need for me to double cleanse. It really gets into your pores and cleanse without stripping or leaving your skin overly dry.

It’s able to cut through oils, sunscreen and waterproof makeup like no other cleanser I’ve used and it helps to maintain and improve  your skin barrier.

Products rating :

Anti-aging Copper peptide face mask – 9.5/10

Hydrating cleansing gel – 8/10
