There’s No One Like You
There are very few formulations out there designed to fade the appearance of post-acne red marks. There are even fewer formulations that are effective. Lighten Up uses a one-of-a-kind blend of natural, soothing ingredients you cannot find anywhere else.
More Than a Pore-Purging Machine
With retinol to fight the signs of aging, and AZA to calm redness and fade the look of post-acne marks, Clear Out Extra Strength does more than tackle tough clogs. As the spots and bumps start to go, look out for all-round healthier, younger-looking skin.

@megdaviesx I’ve suffered with acne since I was 12 years old. Now at 25 I just accepted that I’d always have acne prone skin. When I came across Clearly, I had pretty much run out of hope, thinking ‘well why the hell not give it a go!’.
Only 2 months into my new routine, and I can’t believe this is my skin!! I am happy to go out of the house without makeup on but doing makeup isn’t a chore anymore either. My confidence has grown and I can’t believe I didn’t find Clearly sooner!
@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🔮🧚🏽♀️
@megandownes Amazing!! Never have I found a brand that is so gentle on my skin but works wonders. The lighten up is the best thing for redness, the difference in just one day on my pictures below. Can’t recommend enough, especially for hormonal acne. Thank you Clearly!

How To Use
How do the products in this set work together?
- Clear Out Extra Strength (COES) is our flagship product. As the name implies, it flushes out the clogs and congestion in your pores, making it much harder for breakouts to form.
- Lighten Up fades the appearance of red marks left after pimples have flattened.
Why is Clearly Basics different?
CLEARLY BASICS IS EFFECTIVE. Every product in the Clearly Basics lineup uses medical-grade ingredients which ensure the purity and potency (and ultimately, the effectiveness) of the formulation. Most of our products use multiple active ingredients; when combined in the right mix, these ingredients amplify each other’s effectiveness. Our pharmacists then boost the formulations with botanicals, which are very effective in reducing potential irritation.
How do I apply the 2 products?
Wash your face and pat dry. Follow with your toner (if using).
Then, apply Lighten Up directly onto any red acne marks.
Wait 3 minutes and apply a pea-sized pump of COES (for nighttime use only). Be sure to apply COES before other night creams.
You should use a pea-sized pump of COES to spread across your entire face and the lotion should be left on all night. It’s that simple! We spent a lot of time working on the base of this formulation so that a pea-sized pump can spread across your entire face. At this rate, a single bottle should last 2.5 to 3 months.
Note that 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, continue with your usual routine and use a non-comedogenic facial sunscreen with SPF+30 if you are going outdoors.
How often do I apply the 2 products?
As for COES, it should only be applied in the evenings. 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.
Can I use this set alongside my other skincare products?
If COES is too drying, step down to using Clear Out instead.
Can I use this set if I have sensitive skin?
Can I use this set if I am trying to conceive, breastfeeding, or pregnant?
I am getting new breakouts while using COES. Should I discontinue use?
COES does not cause clogs. Rather, these were clogs that were already deep inside your skin before you started COES and it is necessary to remove these in order to get clear skin. 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 COES for rosacea, psoriasis, cystic or nodular acne?
Will certain skin conditions make the purge worse?
Can I use 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 to surface.
- 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.
