Repairs and strengthens your skin
$39.90 USD $31.90 USD (save 20%)

Light yet extremely nourishing, Protective Moisturizer strengthens the skin barrier and shields it from UV rays, pollution, and harsh weather. This means damage stays away, and your skin remains soft and healthy.

Protective Moisturizer is for you if:

  • You have combination, dry, or sensitive skin
  • Your skin flushes red (flushing leads to premature aging)  
  • You want to improve overall skin health and protect skin from stressors that lead to irritation and acne
  • You are looking for a moisturizer you can comfortably wear all day under makeup
    As a skincare line designed for acne-prone skin, you can rest assured that the entire Clearly Basics lineup does not clog pores.


    Nourishes skin barrier

    With medical-grade peptides, aloe vera, and resveratrol, Protective Moisturizer repairs skin and shields it from environmental stressors that lead to irritation and acne. The result is smooth, healthy skin all day long.

    Reduces Redness

    Skin blushing causes premature aging. Protective Moisturizer uses peptides to strengthen your skin. After a month of use, you will notice that your skin is more resilient and less prone to redness.

    Soothes dry and sensitive skin

    Protective Moisturizer is very nourishing to the skin, helping to build strength. It was originally designed to reduce the irritation caused by prescription acne medications. This non-comedogenic formulation is not greasy so it sits well under makeup.

    Fights signs of aging

    With peptides and aloe vera to boost collagen, Protective Moisturizer helps to fade the appearance of wrinkles and gives skin firmer, smoother tone.

    I suffered with acne for years, and when I finally learned to stop the acne I was left with red and brown scars and hyperpigmentation. But I started using the clearly basics Lighten up cream and Dark mark defends, followed by the moisturiser, and I saw a dramatic difference within days! My scars have lightened so much and most of them are gone. I find this moisturiser is also very hydrating but not greasy, it is absorbed into my skin effortlessly, and it wears beautifully under my makeup. I've now been using the products for 6 months and will continue to use it!

    So grateful I found Clearly Basics. Their products have been a game changer for me. I use almost everything in their line, but I especially love the Clear Out Extra Strength to manage my acne and Protective Moisturizer which helps with my acne healing

    When I first started with Clearly Basics, I had just came off Roaccutane which helped me a little before, but as soon as I was off it, I started getting breakouts again. I was informed that the Clearly Basics products were also designed for people who have gone off prescription medications, to help manage acne to avoid relapsing, and they’ve been absolutely great for me! I was in awe of my progress when I first started, and now I’ve been using the products for more than a year! I really believe in these products. I wake up everyday with a smile on my face because of my much healthier skin

    “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 Basic 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!!”

    Amazing! Always keeps my skin glowing and moisturised

    My skin feels so soft after using this moisturizer!


    I am obsessed with this moisturiser. I have tried so many mild moisturisers, but this one keeps my face hydrated without leaving a shiny layer on my face. I only wish Clearly had their own SPF to go with it.


    I like this moisturiser because it doesnt clog pores and a little goes a long way. I have quite oily skin on my forehead so I also use the mattifying serum too. Happy so far with these products


    On those days when my skin is rough it smooths it wonderfully and hydrates.
