How 10 Women Around the World Finally Get Clear Skin

Acne, the 8th most prevalent disease in the world, affects over 650 million people worldwide¹. Anyone who’s suffered from acne knows how painful or stressful it can be. Due to lack of education and lack of effective products, acne is often left untreated, leading to atrophic scarring which is much harder to fix later in life.

There are many factors (direct & indirect) which can cause acne making it difficult to isolate a source and potentially expensive to treat. Fortunately, clear skin is attainable WITHOUT going broke according to these women.

By addressing the four factors that directly contribute to acne², they are able to see clearer skin and prevent breakouts.

Here are their stories.

FREE TOOLKIT TO CLEAR ACNE

Answer 3 easy questions to get Clearly Basics' Toolkit to clear acne!


Mim, a teacher from Southampton, had suffered from hormonal cystic acne on combination skin for the past 6 years.

She spent thousands on products which claimed to be effective at stopping acne. When these masks, scrubs and cleansers failed to meet their claims, the fallback excuse would be due to “hormonal acne”, which can’t be controlled.

Mim starting taking contraceptives in an effort to regulate her hormones and she also took antibiotics and prescription topical creams but they did not have a lasting effect in slowing down the breakouts.

She started using the Clear Out (originally designed to clear clogs on acne-prone skin) and noticed a difference almost immediately. Within a month, most of her actives were gone and she was only left with post-acne marks which covered her cheeks.

From the second month, the Lighten Up, started to make a significant difference in fading the appearance of her post-acne red marks and by the third month she had clear skin. For the first time in years, Mim has gone months without using green concealer and can go to work without makeup.

Skin still going strong 💪 Used the @clearlybasics cleanser, toner, clear out and protective moisturiser last night. This morning is all about the cleanser and matte hydrator 🥰 (I actually don’t need to use the lighten up every single day now as my hyperpigmentation is gone!). Remember you can get 10% off with the code ‘acneisntugly’ 💷 (remember it has the money back guarantee if you need that little safety net). If you’re worried at all or skeptical please see my journey on my account! I’ve used nothing but clearly basics for 7 months. No doctors, dermatologists, medication, diets or lifestyle changes. I’m as sharing my journey with trialling this product for those of us that can’t go on roacutane and have hit rock bottom. I thought all my acne treatment routes were exhausted and had no other options as I’d tried it all. I began to accept my acne and accept that was how my skin would look. I’m not claiming clearly will clear your skin forever and ‘cure’ you. We can’t cure acne. What I can tell you is, it’s reduced my hyperpigmentation and redness completely and I haven’t had a cyst in over 5 months. My breakouts have reduced significantly and they don’t last as long on my face. My whole experience with acne has drastically changed. It’s gone from severe to mild in under a year just from consistently using high quality ingredients. #skin #skincare #acne #healthyskin #happyskin #clearlybasics

Toni

Individual results may vary

Toni, a stylist from Hertfordshire, has suffered from cystic acne for most of her life.

She had been to the doctors many times and was given creams and tablets which were harsh and burnt a layer off her skin. Instead, she put her trust in high street cosmetic brands but she never saw the progress she had hoped for (or paid for).

Desperate to find a solution, she turned to aestheticians who offered cutting edge treatments that promised the world: dermarollers, vampire facials, microdermabrasion… you name it and she has probably tried it. In total she had spent close to £5,000 in treatments that showed marginal results but her acne kept coming back.

When she stumbled onto Clearly Basics, she thought they were no different than the other brands. However, she was surprised to find how knowledgeable and responsive Clearly Basics is over chat. She was recommended the Complete Trio (Clear Out + Lighten Up + Protective Moisturizer) and decided to give it a try. Toni saw significant improvement in using the Trio and almost all her acne has cleared within the first set. She is only left with post-acne scarring.

Kiana

Individual results may vary

Kiana, a data entry specialist from New Jersey, grew up with acne and hyperpigmentation on sensitive skin for most of her teenage and adult life.

Five different dermatologists had tried to treat her acne but they all fell short. She had committed to using “clean” products for a year, eliminating any chemical that could cause harm to her already damaged skin. While her skin responded positively to the natural ingredients, progress was very slow.

When she came across Clearly Basics, she was intrigued as skincare companies rarely use USP certified ingredients (highest grade).

Since she has very sensitive skin, Kiana first used the Clearly Basics’ Protective Moisturizer for two weeks to help strengthen her skin and reduce sensitivity. Then she started to introduce the Clear Out slowly by applying every alternate evening. Within three months, she saw significant improvement in texture and the hyperpigmentation went away.

Kiana logs her acne journey on Instagram @thoughtsofhealing. She talks about the importance of the 3 ingredients (retinol, AZA & pracaxi oil) here.

Ella

Ella, an aesthetician and a makeup artist from Manchester, developed adult-onset acne with a vengeance in 2015.

She was fully aware of the potential negative side effects of using prescription oral medication to control her acne (particularly on birth defects³), and was NOT willing to take the risk. So she opted for antibiotics and prescription creams instead.

Unfortunately, the creams were too strong for her, so she finally accepted prescription oral medication as her last resort in 2016 and went through a 6-month course of it. Fast forward to 2019, she never ever thought she would ever be able to feel confident in herself and with her skin again!

Ella is currently using the Clear Out‘s (2% retinol + AZA) to keep her skin less acne prone, improves the texture of her skin and slows down the aging process of her skin – giving her the natural glow.

She also loves the Protective Moisturizer as it is loaded with peptides, the building blocks of human skin that stimulate the skin to repair. As the skin strengthens, she sees a decrease in redness and sensitivity.

Alisha

Alisha, from Berkshire, developed severe acne when she was 15-years-old.

In her desperation to stop the pimples, she has tried every imaginable wash, soap, scrub, peel, mask, and lotion. Her bathroom cabinets were a graveyard of high end and on-trend products claiming to give her ‘perfect skin’. Unfortunately, most of them only made her breakouts worsen.

Alisha then went through 3 rounds of prescription oral medication but her acne would always come back. She talks about the negative side effects from it and it should not be taken lightly.

“A lot of people always asking me what I do to maintain my skin after prescription oral medication. All I can say is ‘Clear Out’ by @clearlybasics is a Godsend ❤️ I started using Clear out after finishing my course of prescription oral medication and it has helped keep acne at bay. It doesn’t leave me overly dry or flakey which most retinol creams did. I wish I had used the Clear Out before using prescription oral medication.”

The Clear Out has been very effective at keeping her clog free so that she can work on scar repair.

Deanna

Individual results may vary

Deanna, from Essex, had enjoyed clear skin throughout her teenage years but started to get adult-onset acne through her 20’s. She tried every cosmetic, diet, and lifestyle change imaginable but could NEVER find anything that kept the spots away.

Over the summer, she was introduced the Power Duo (Clear Out + Lighten Up) into her routine and she noticed results within weeks:

“The texture of my skin is smoother, the redness is non-existent and scars are fading faster than ever (even quicker than using aloe vera). I rarely get new spots in my problematic areas and find my skin improving the more I use Clearly Basics” – Deanna

Regardless if she gets the occasional pimple, Deanna is now happy to leave the house with no makeup and her confidence has skyrocketed.

Bea

Individual results may vary

Bea, a student from California, suffered from cystic acne on oily skin. She had used prescription medication, chemical peels and a long list of cosmetic brands in an effort to stop her breakouts but most of these products irritated her skin, resulting in even more breakouts.

Without insurance to cover visits to a dermatologist, Bea spent a lot of time following dermatologists on social media and found that gentler ingredients were more effective for her skin.

When the #acnecommunity started talking about Clearly Basics, Bea was intrigued that there was a product specifically targeted at red acne scars. Within the first Power Duo (Clear Out + Lighten Up) set, Bea had significantly reduced her new breakouts and any breakout that surfaced went away in days rather than weeks. Furthermore, the red scars on her face had virtually disappeared over the course of a month.

Bea logs her acne journey on Instagram @beas.bareskin.

Skin update ✨ My skin looks so good ! I’ve had a few of my classmates tell me my skin texture looks so nice and even now 😊 . . If any of you are wondering what products I use that have been giving me positive results, swipe to see my AM and PM products using @clearlybasics . AM routine: I start of with cleanser and cleanse for about 60 seconds ( i read somewhere that 60 seconds is the proper amount of time but not less! But don’t quote me on this 😅) . . 2. Dab a little bit of the Lighten Up mainly focusing on my cheeks and chin. The bottle may be small but it lasts a while! A little goes a long way as long as you’re consistent 😉 . . 3. I quickly apply toner by putting some on my palms and press to my face. I haven’t gotten around to but cotton pads lol so I work with what I have. 4. And to wrap everything up, I apply my matte moisturizer ✨ since my face is oily, the matte Hydrator is best for me 🙂 . . . For P.M, I do everything above but I add in the Clear Out 🙌 the bottle is semi small but as I mentioned either the Lighten Up, a little goes a long way!!! . . . I also make sure I apply sunscreen energy morning especially after ive used Clear Out the night before. Skin may be more sensitive to the sun using retinol so its always good to apply sunscreen 🌞 plus you should be applying sunscreen DAILY anyways 🤷‍♀️

Sarah

Individual results may vary

Sarah, a nurse from Victoria, had struggled with cystic acne on oily skin for over 6 years.

She is fully aware of the potential negative side effects of using prescription oral medication to control her acne (birth defects, joint pain, eye infections, difficulty moving, blurred vision, mental depression, etc). Yet she contemplated using this medication as a last resort to stop the breakouts from coming.

Sarah came across Clearly Basics over Facebook and ordered the Complete Trio. In just two months into her first set, she saw significant progress. The Clear Out quickly flattened her existing cysts and the Lighten Up helped to fade the appearance of her red acne scars.

She is excited with her progress using the Trio set as she is well on her way to clear skin with Clearly Basics.

Emma

Individual results may vary

Emma, a student from Manchester, had struggled with severe acne for over 6 years.

She tried an endless list of skincare products and diets to no avail. After three years of breakouts, Emma managed to get off the wait list for a dermatologist. Antibiotics only made things worse but six hard months of oral prescription medication helped to calm down her cysts.

However, she was left with stubborn red acne scars and could not find a product to fade away the red scars. She used a number of acids, peels and cleaners which only irritated her skin, leaving her cheeks flushed and sensitive.

Then she stumbled upon Clearly Basics, and she was pleasantly surprised to find a formulation specifically designed for post-acne red marks. Within a month, the Lighten Up had significantly faded the appearance of her red scars.

“I started using Clearly Basics and now a lot of those spots have gone… no joke!! ❤️” – Emma.

Ellie

Individual results may vary

Ellie, from Essex, has combination skin so it was hard to find products that could adapt to her skin. She also suffered from general redness and scarring that never seemed to go away.

She had heard about Clearly Basics through the #acnecommunity and was excited to use the Complete Trio. The Protective Moisturizer and Lighten Up helped to significantly reduce the redness on her face while the Clear Out helped to flush out her clogs.

Ellie continues to use the Protective Moisturizer and Lighten Up to work these (post-acne red scars) away.

See what others have to say about Clearly Basics.

@carliedaniel18 I have suffered with acne since i was 13, After years of medication, and spending absolutely £1000s on products that didn’t work i decided to try prescription oral medication, and it was the hardest 8 months of my life. I got all the side affects, and even though eventually it did clear my skin after being off it for just 3 months my skin got bad again especially hormonally!

I then came across clearly basics, although the reviews were good I was very reluctant as it wasn’t cheap and could be another dud that didn’t work! Eventually I gave in as I always do and it was the best decision ever! I can’t believe I hadn’t come across this sooner, my skin has cleared up so much. It’s made my skin soft and glowy as well, it genuinely is everything in a bottle!

@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.

@theclearskinroad My @clearlybasics update!! The photos on the left were October 2nd and the photos on the right were today (October 11th).

I’ve been using the Power Duo for Clearly Basics for about 2 months now, and now starting to see quick results! My favourite is the “Clear Out” 🤗 Loving the results and exciting to keep using Clearly products!

@gabriela.akrapovic 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 ads 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! Thanks Clearly Basics!!

@startingtolovemyself ✨Not a pimple in sight!!!✨

It’s been about 3 weeks since I started using @clearlybasics Clear Out, Lighten Up and the Protective Moisturizer (the Complete Trio) and my skin has improved so much and I definitely think it’s from the Clear Out formula most of all!

It really is a miracle in a bottle! I’m excited to see how my skin changes even more in the next few weeks and months using them!

@thoughtsofhealing I’ve been using @clearlybasics for over 4 months but here’s a difference from June 3rd and August 2nd!

The ingredients in @clearlybasics Clear Out is AMAZING for hyperpigmentation.

A complete GAME CHANGER!
