What makes Clearly Basics different?
We’ve taken products that are normally sold in a dermatologist’s office at 3x the price and made it available for everyday consumers. We select medical grade (USP certified) ingredients when purity and potency matters, but less expensive cosmetic grade ingredients when quality is not a concern.
We believe in transparency and post real results from real users along with their social media handle. We are one of the few acne-related brands who share real results … you are welcome to contact our users to verify and ask about their experiences.
Why is the Clear Out different?
The Clear Out uses retinol + azelaic acid to flush out dead skin and clogs and azelaic acid + pracaxi to flatten and quickly heal (a formulation you can’t find anywhere else on the market).

Full Ingredients List
water, alcohol, azelaic acid, cetearyl alcohol, cyclomethicone, cetearyl ethylhexanoate, isopropyl myristate, PPG-3 benzyl ether ethylhexanoate, glycerin, glyceryl stearate, PEG-100 stearate, retinol, pentaclethra macroloba seed oil, pentylene glycol, lecithin, polysorbate 20, potassium phosphate, phenoxyethanol, ethylhexylglycerin
Volume: 30ml, 1.01 fluid ounces.
Each bottle is designed to last 3 months with nightly application.
What it does:
The Clear Out uses –
- Retinol to flush out dead skin and clear clogs.
- Azelaic acid to soothe irritation, improves uneven skin tone and brightens skin.
- Pracaxi oil to reduce the appearance of red marks or scars.
The three active ingredients have been carefully balanced to produce better results with less side effects.
What it is formulated without:
Fragrance-, colorant-, lanolin-, gluten-free and cruelty-free. This non-comedogenic formulation is freshly made in Singapore and packed in airless bottles so there are minimal preservatives.
What else you need to know:
In the first month, this formulation will trigger a purge of dead skin trapped in your pores which can appear as flakes or low level breakouts. It is necessary to flush out this dead skin which is the material that creates clogs inside the pore. During this time, the formulation will also flush out any existing microcomedones … low level acne that was already in the making inside your pore. This purge will peak at week 5 and subside after week 8 of use. At week 10, you will turn over a clearer layer of skin that is less clog prone.

The Clear Out is only used in the evening as part of your before-bed skincare routine:
- Wash your face with a cleanser
- Apply toner (if applicable, free of AHAs/BHAs)
- Apply the Lighten Up (optional)
- Apply the Clear Out
- Apply moisturizer or other skincare that you normally use in the evening

@_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 & Azaleic Acid has; I JUST WANT MY GLOW BACK!! I’ll dedicate my next post to the ingredients and how they ‘clearly’ work!!
@pimpledgirl The 1st week was amazed! Fascinating skin texture, there were no stinging. The 2nd week were pretty same. The 3rd week – purging starred – bumpy skin, redness. The 4th week – same but I added #ProtectiveMoisturiser either from @clearlybasics and in three days redness was reduced. The 5-6th weeks – skin smoother, less red, breaking out badly. The 7-8th week – is it my skin? not red (even after washing as it used to be).
I’d say the amount of pustules has been reduced in 85%. I still have some tiny-tiny pimples and will keep going with mu treatment. • Honestly I’m very grateful to Clearly Basics • I’ll keep you updated.
@gemskin__ A little progress goes a long way! 🙌🏻 In the first picture I think my skin was purging from the first week of using @clearlybasics ‘Clear Out’. I believe I actually cried either before or after I took this photo, my skin was super painful and I felt so ugly and self conscious!
The second picture is 5 weeks after using Clear Out, just scarring (being helped by using Lighten Up) and no actives!
I’m so happy with the results so far using these products and they have been the only thing that has helped my skin!
@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!
@acneisntugly Thank you @clearlybasics for being on this journey with me for the past 5 months.
No more green concealer or green primer! My skin tone is so much better, I don’t use as much foundation as I once did, I don’t constantly worry I look like I have chicken pox and I feel much more confident within my skin!
The power duo really has been an absolute game changer for my skin and I’m so glad I’ve shared my results day in and day out so we could all see this progression.
@xx.tonilumsden This is me 5 weeks into my skincare journey with @clearlybasics.
5 weeks ago, 5 months ago, and even 5 years ago, I had lost all hope for my skin and appearance. Now I have regained that hope and positivity because I know that I am using amazing skincare products by @clearlybasics that actually do work without being harsh on my skin.
Just because you feel like nothing is working doesn’t mean you should give up on hope.
Frequently Asked Questions
How is the Clear Out different from other products that claim to clear pores?
- Medical-Grade: The Clear Out uses USP certified (usp.org) ingredients. These ingredients are more expensive but far more effective.
- Multiple Actives: The Clear Out has three active ingredients which have been carefully balanced so that each ingredient works together to address clogged pores on acne prone skin. This means that with lower concentrations (less side effects), we will generate better results. This is particularly important for retinol as most countries have a maximum threshold of 2% retinol for over the counter medication. We amplify the effectiveness of retinol by pairing it up with other ingredients.
- Transparency: Clearly has a money back guarantee on its product and we are confident that you will see a noticeable decrease in clogs after your first bottle of Clear Out. Also, Clearly keeps the reviews section of its Facebook Page open. You can see that the reviews are from real users who have used our products. Most peer brands have shut down the reviews section of their pages or have directed their reviews to a website where they can filter and show only the good reviews.
How do I apply the Clear Out?
- Wash your face for the evening and pat dry. Wait 3 minutes before applying the Clear Out
- Apply a pea-sized pump of Clear Out AFTER cleansing and toning but BEFORE other night creams
- Start the Clear Out with alternate nightly application. This gives your skin time to adjust to the strength of the formulation. Step up to nightly application after one week if no lasting irritation occurs
- The Clear Out packs quite a punch. As such, avoid using products which contain AHAs or BHAs until your skin has adjusted and you are not experiencing irritation
- During the day, use a non-comedogenic facial sunscreen with SPF+30 if you are going outdoors
How often do I apply the Clear Out?
Can I use these products alongside my other skincare products?
If the Clear Out is too drying, most users will apply the Moisturizer after applying the Clear Out. If the Clear Out is too strong, apply the Moisturizer before applying Clear Out. This should only be done for two weeks until your skin adjusts and we can then step up by applying the Clear Out first before the Moisturizer.
Can I use this product if I have sensitive skin?
Can I use this product if I have oily skin?
What do I do about acne scars?
Can I use this product if I am trying to conceive, breastfeeding or pregnant?
If you are pregnant and you ingest the Clear Out, there is a miniscule chance that retinol could cause birth defects. As such, consult your doctor if using the Clear Out while pregnant. There has been no documented case of birth defects amongst pregnant mothers who used topical retinol.
The Clear Out can also be used by men in all stages of life.
I am getting new breakouts while using the Clear Out. Should I discountinue use?
Get through the purge and by week eight, it’s smooth sailing! You will turn over a new layer of skin with less clogs. Every bottle is designed to last 3 months so you should see this turnover and improved results by the end of your first bottle.
Can I use the Clear Out for rosacea, psoriasis, cystic or nodular acne?
Will certain skin conditions make the purge worse?
Can I use Clear Out on my back or body?
How can I tell the difference between a reaction and a purge
- A rash or breakout caused by a reaction/allergy would show up within the first day whereas a purge would take at least several days before surfacing.
- A breakout caused by a reaction would surface even on areas where you typically do not have acne. If you are applying the Clear Out on your whole face and only getting breakouts where you normally get pimples, this is likely a normal purge.
- If the breakouts you are getting are itchy 10 minutes after applying the Clear out, discontinue use.
