I am so happy that I stumbled upon clearly basics on instagram. I was skeptical at first but decided to give it a try and bought clear out clarifying lotion. It's been 2 months and my skin has improved a lot. I can see significant reduction in pores and acne.

This product is a complete game changer! Stick to your routine and patience is key !

The only thing that works for my acne!

In 2020 I broke out into acne all over my face. It would start off very small like a white head and turn into big cystic acne over the course of weeks. These breakouts would not stop and would take weeks on end to recover. I started using clear out and within 5-6 weeks I stopped breaking out and now I use it as a maintenance treatment. If I get small red spots, I use this and overnight they disappear! I was sceptical about this product because every time I used a product based on reviews, it never worked for me. But this is the only product on the market that worked for me.

After 4 decades of acne have I found a soloution?

I am a week into using Clear Out and so far everything I expected to happen has taken place. With 4 decades of mild but persistent acne I'm certainly committed to giving this a few months to (hopefully) work it's magic. So far I can almost see my pores clearing. This does mean, as I expected more spots appearing but if this means they are finally leaving than lurking under my skin to keep making an appearance every few weeks or months I'm happy with that. I also have some rosacea across my cheeks so was worried that it might become worse, however, the spots that more recently have been appearing alongside the redness appear to be reacting in the same way as other acne type spots. I experienced a little dryness around my eye sockets as I had applied too much product in this area but within a few days this disappeared. It's early days but I'm feeling hopeful and positive and an acne free middle age is certainly very welcome! I am now considering purchasing additional products for cleaning and brown patch treatment. Will update my journey in a couple of months.
