What makes Clearly Basics different?
We’ve taken products that are often EXCLUSIVELY sold in a dermatologist’s office at 3x the price and made it available for everyday consumers. We select USP certified ingredients when potency matters, but less expensive cosmetic grade ingredients when purity is not a concern.
The most frequent comment we get in our reviews is that users have tried everything and nothing has come close to the results they have seen with our formulations.
Why is Clear Out Extra Strength (COES) different?
COES is ~20% stronger than Clear Out; it contains a higher concentration of retinol and uses salicylic acid instead of pracaxi. Retinol + AZA are the top choices for dermatologists and we’ve spent years balancing the two ingredients into a single lotion so that it maximizes the effectiveness of the two ingredients. AZA is also paired with salicylic acid to break down sebum. (You can’t find this combination of ingredients anywhere else on the market).
Ingredient synergy is the reason why our products are more effective than other products may which may also contain retinol or AZA. All Clearly Basics products contain medical grade ingredients + synergy + botanical complexes that balance the formulations so that they do not irritate your skin.

Why is the Lighten Up different?
There are very few formulations on the market designed to fade the appearance of post-acne marks and even fewer formulations that are effective. Clearly Basics’ Lighten Up formulation is the best in its class.

An essential oil extracted from chamomile flowers, bisabolol is an excellent anti-irritant, soothing agent & a humectant to lock in skin’s natural moisture.

What it does:
Clear Out Extra Strength (COES) uses –
- Retinol to flush out dead skin and clear clogs.
- AZA to soothe skin, improves uneven skin tone and brightens skin.
- Salicylic Acid to break down sebum.
The three active ingredients have been carefully balanced to produce better results with less side effects.
What it is formulated without:
Fragrance-, colorant-, paraben-, phthalate-, lanolin-free. PETA certified vegan and cruelty-free. This non-comedogenic formulation is freshly made in Singapore and packed in airless bottles so there are minimal preservatives.
When will I see results?
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.

@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🔮🧚🏽♀️
@skinwithak @clearlybasics helped maintain my skin after oral prescription and honestly their products have helped so many, I get many DM’s thanking me for recommending Clearly Basics and how it’s helped them.
If I knew about @clearlybasics prior to my course of oral prescription I would’ve definitely gone with using Clear Out for sure!
@myfriendacne At first I thought that my skin was THE thing that changed the most. It clearly is seeing from the surface. And here must say a huuuuge thank you to @clearlybasics for supporting me and give me the opportunity to take care of my skin.
After I looked at my pictures from last year I was shocked how my attitude has changed towards myself. I love myself more. I accept my skin, my body and my inner self so much more than a year before where I had the feeling to be perfect to my own imaginations and for other people.
@beas.bareskin Clearly Basics have been with me for about a week and I’m so happy I’ve been using their product!!!!!
My fave between these 3 is the “Lighten up” one because it has definitely helped with the redness! The redness on my cheeks are slowly dimming down and the texture of my skin is so soft and smooth.
You may not be able to tell cuz pictures don’t do it justice but if you were to have felt my skin before I used their products compared to now you can definitely feel the difference !!!
@roxyrogan I have struggled with hormonal acne for over 1 year and had tried every face cream, scrub & peel you could find! When I started with Clearly Basics my skin started to clear within using the first bottle of ‘Clear Out’!
My skin is now on the road to recovery and I still use Clearly Basics ‘Clear Out, Protective Moisturizer and Lighten Up’ products every day! Highly recommend Clearly Basics to anyone who’s suffering from stubborn acne! 💛
@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!!

Frequently Asked Questions
What is the difference between Clear Out Extra Strength (COES) and the regular Clear Out?
People who have been using Clear Out can “graduate” to COES with minimal risk of irritation. Also people who have oily skin can start directly on COES if they have larger clogs to clear.
COES will differ in texture and color from the CO due to the different ingredients used. COES has a more fluid texture and a slight yellow tint due to the 2% salicylic acid.
How is Clear Out Extra Strength (COES) different from other products that claim to clear pores?
- USP Certified: COES is loaded with medical grade (USP certified) ingredients. While medial grade ingredients cost a lot more than their cosmetic grade counterparts, it ensures a level of purity and potency for our ingredients and ultimately this means that our products are more effective.
- Multiple Actives: COES has three active ingredients that have been carefully balanced so that each ingredient works together to address clogged pores on acne-prone skin. This means that with lower concentrations (fewer side effects), we will generate better results.
- 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 Clear Out Extra Strength (COES)?
- Wash your face for the evening and pat dry. Wait 3 minutes before applying COES
- Apply a pea-sized pump of COES AFTER cleansing and toning but BEFORE other night creams
- Start COES 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
- COES 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 Clear Out Extra Strength (COES)?
Can I use these products alongside my other skincare products?
If COES is too drying, most users will apply the Moisturizer after applying COES. If COES is too strong, apply the Moisturizer before applying COES. This should only be done for two weeks until your skin adjusts and we can then step up by applying COES 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, consult your doctor if using the Clear Out while pregnant.
COES can also be used by men in all stages of life.
I am getting new breakouts while using the Clear Out. Should I discontinue use?
Get through the purge and by week eight, it’s smooth sailing! You will turn over a new layer of skin with fewer 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 Clear Out Extra Strength (COES) for rosacea, psoriasis, cystic or nodular acne?
Will certain skin conditions make the purge worse?
Can I use Clear Out Extra Strength (COES) 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 COES 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 COES, discontinue use.
