A clog normally takes 6 weeks to emerge as a pimple. However, a closed comedone (hard lump underneath your skin) may take up to 5 months brewing as a clog before it finally surfaces as a cyst. As such, you will need to be patient and consistent with your skincare routine in order to determine what is actually working:
Commit to using an acne product or system for at least 10 weeks before making a decision as to whether it is effective. If you have closed comedones, you may need to wait 5 months before these stubborn clogs finally flush out.
You will only know if an acne treatment is effective after you have finished an entire cycle (at three months). You should notice that new breakouts have decreased dramatically, otherwise it is time to move on.
After a gradual phase in, use your acne treatment daily for the duration of the three months. Resist the urge to throw in additional products within the three month observation period as the use of multiple acne treatments will likely cause irritation and may even trigger a new wave of breakouts.
Once you have been consistently breakout-free for three months, you’ve hit maintenance mode whereby you can step down usage of Clear Out by applying every other day. You should have already stopped using Lighten Up and Dark Mark Defense since acne marks have been a thing of the past 😉
As the name suggests, the Clear Out will force out the clogs currently trapped inside your pores. This “purging” peaks at week 5 with a second smaller peak at week 8.
It is necessary for us to get rid of these clogs if you want to get clear skin. If we kept these clogs trapped in your pores, they would surface down the road as even larger pimples.
By the end of week 10 most of the clogs that were lurking in your pores will have been flushed out and you will turn over a new layer of skin that is less acne prone.

@gabriela.akrapovi Absolutely so happy with this product! My cheeks were congested and had so many breakouts and redness I didn’t know what to do anymore. I tried everything. I kept seeing Clearly Basics showing up on my Facebook and Instagram and thought what the hell and decided to order the complete trio moisturizer pack. It came in cute packaging and the directions were clear. I started using it two months ago and my god there is a lot of improvement!! My cheeks are less congested and red. I have mostly dark spots but the Lighten Up is definitely helping with that! I rarely get any big breakouts and even if a pimple starts to show the Clear Out stops it in it’s track. The Protective Moisturizer is great for my sensitive skin and helps keep my skin feel moisturized but doesn’t make my skin go oily. I definitely would recommend this product and I can’t wait to see how my skin will be in the few months using Clearly Basics! Thanks Clearly Basics!!
@brittaneyshanae I swear the Power Duo (Clear Out and Lighten Up) are a GOD-send! I’ve been using both consistently for 3 months now and my skin has NEVER looked or felt better! I haven’t experienced a breakout since March and more than 80% of my hyperpigmentation is GONE!
I’m so grateful to have finally found a product that actually works for my skin!
If you’re dealing with acne breakouts and hyperpigmentation, you should def research Clearly Basics.
@amynuramira I have been struggling with acne for 10 years. This is by far the best product. I started out with brown pigmentation (acne marks) and a lot of tiny bumps of acne on my forehead, cheek and nose (kind of like sand paper). As soon as I started the Clear Out and Lighten Up, my acne bumps got smaller and smaller. My brown pigmentation began turning lighter (reddish pinkish).
Initially, when I started using it, I didn’t really get a ‘purge’ it was just a small amount of break outs which went away in a few weeks. Now my hormonal break outs are not as terrible as before, they still appear but barely noticeable. My skin is acne-free, pigmentation are still there but they’ve improved tremendously!
@deannaskin Over the past month and a half I’ve noticed a massive change to the appearance and texture of my skin since using @clearlybasics. Honestly the most effective products (vegan of course) I’ve used all year. Not only has the redness of my spots reduced, but I rarely get painful under-the-skin bumps or huge whiteheads anymore. My scars have also faded so quickly 👀
If your skin is similar to mine I’d 100% recommend that you implement these products into your skincare routine.
I’m only a few weeks in using these products but the results have been so positive🔮🧚🏽♀️
@_myskinstory 😭 I feel like I’m an addict and someone has taken away my drugs 😂
Saturday night I came to the end of my @clearlybasics Clear Out bottle. After consistently applying it every night for 3 months along side Niacinamide & Zinc so last night I had nothing to apply. (Right picture: a few days previous. Left picture: This morning) As soon as I woke up I knew it different feel great! 😭
Regardless off the other amazing benefits that a 2% Retinol & AZA has; I JUST WANT MY GLOW BACK!! I’ll dedicate my next post to the ingredients and how they ‘clearly’ work!!
