I've tried Rain-X on faceshields before and it keeps the rain off quite well, it also seems to cause a lot of light refraction from headlights so I generally don't use it. I find the ol' turn your head and finger wipe works as good as anything else.

In my experience, a full-face lid with a Pinlock anti-fog insert in place is the best for rain. The drops roll off the outside and the Pinlock stops condensation inside. If I have the big windscreen on (Winter) I'll tilt it on the MadStad bracket so my face is just above it.
