Balancing Cleanser100mlAHA + BHA cleanser for oily skin
For those who need extra cleansing power, this soap-free formulation contains both AHA + BHA. Glycolic acid works on the surface to exfoliate while salicylic acid goes deeper into the pores to dissolve dead skin cells and break down sebum.
Most acne cleansers contain a single AHA or a BHA. However, Balancing Cleanser combines both acids for extra effectiveness. We then minimize irritation by balancing this formulation with numerous botanicals.
Since we use medical-grade ingredients, you can even leave Balancing Cleanser on your skin for 30 minutes to get a gentle peel!

Double Trouble for Breakouts
Most acne face washes are formulated with only an AHA or BHA. Balancing Cleanser is formulated with 2% glycolic acid (an AHA) and 2% salicylic acid (a BHA) to help clear clogged pores and prepare the skin for the acne-fighting actives to follow. Balanced with botanicals, the formulation is tough on pimples but gentle on skin.
Your Weekly Facial Treatment
More than a daily face wash, Balancing Cleanser can be used as a weekly facial mask. Leave it on for 30 minutes for a gentle peel before carrying on with your regular skincare routine!

@amysacnehealing Yes I know the lighting is different but look at the difference in the texture 😍. Yes I still have acne, that hasn’t gone away however…the fact that my texture has improved has increased my confidence so much. I really do believe this is all down to @clearlybasics I’ve been using their power duo for about 3 weeks and I’ve noticed such a difference in the size of my acne spots…my face doesn’t hurt as much nor is as itchy as it was.
I would definitely recommend giving them a whirl it’s the only products that I can honestly say has made any difference to my skin. The difference it has made in 3 weeks is fab!
@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.
@beatlebarbs Hey guys! So I rarely write reviews, but I’m going make an exception, because it literally changed my life (what a cliche I know).
I’ve suffered from acne pretty much my whole life. I’m generally a happy and optimistic person, or at least I try to be, but acne made it impossible for me. It got to a point where I couldn’t look at myself in the mirror without crying. I didn’t wanna go out or even meet my friends. My self confidence was nonexistent. I had severe anxieties and break downs. I sought the help of a GP and dermatologist but nothing worked. Antibiotics made it even worse.
Then I read about the Clear Out and the reviews were great. Still a bit skeptical, I decided to give it a shot and thank God I did. My skin improved drastically and even though I still get a pimple or two every now and then, I am overall very happy with the results.
