Testimonials

What to Expect With the Power Duo

Teacher Mim @acneisntugly discusses her experience with the Power Duo, how it cleared her breakouts and got rid of her post-acne scars. She had used prescription medications but they burned her skin and made her breakouts worse.

 

Improving Texture & Even Out Skin Tone

Stylist Toni @xx.tonilumsden explains how the Power Duo cleared her acne and improved the texture of her skin. She had spent more than £5,000 in high end products and visits to the dermatologist before trying Clearly Basics.

 

Fading the Appearance of Post-Acne Scars & Hyperpigmentation

Data Specialist Kiana @mysevereacneblog explains how the Clear Out stopped the pimples and faded the appearance of her scars and hyperpigmentation.

 

Flattening Existing Pimples

Nurse Sarah @sarah.c.papp explains how the Clear Out flattened her existing pimples within days rather than weeks. She had struggled with whether to take oral medications due to the potential side effects but was so glad that she tried Clearly Basics instead

 

More Effective Than Diet

Although Deanna @deannaskin saw minor progress by going vegan, and using big name brands, she saw the most improvement using Clearly Basics. Although she may get a flare up, it goes away quickly using the Clear Out.

Ingredients

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 the Clear Out different?

The Clear Out uses retinol + AZA to flush out dead skin and clogs and AZA + pracaxi to relieve redness and heal (a formulation you can’t find anywhere else on the market).

Key Ingredients

Retinol

A derivative of Vitamin A, retinoids are the primary tool that dermatologists use to clear clogs. Dr. Leyden & Dr Stein-Gold, 2017

Benefits

Helps to calm redness, improves skin texture and brightens the skin

Benefits

Pracaxi Oil

This tree tea oil found in the Amazon is an age-old remedy used to promote healing and soothe redness. Banov et al, 2014

Benefits

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.

Key Ingredients

Calendula

A natural oil extracted from marigold flowers, calendula is a powerful antioxidant that protects the skin against environmental damage.

Benefits
  • Powerful antioxidant that improves skin texure and tone
    Dr Kim et al, 2018
  • Calms skin
    Calendula contains flavonoids and triterpene derivatives which calm the skin. Dr Dawid-Pac, 2013

Key Facts

Save 8% by getting two of our most popular formulations as a set: The Clear Out clears clogs, making your skin less acne-prone and the Lighten Up quickly fades the appearance of post-acne red marks.

What it does:

The Clear Out uses –

  • Retinol to flush out dead skin and clear clogs.
  • AZA to soothe skin, improves uneven skin tone and brightens skin.
  • Pracaxi oil to reduce the appearance of red marks.

The Lighten Up uses –

  • Pracaxi oil to hydrate and protect the skin.
  • Bisabolol + Calendula to soothe red marks.

The three essential oils have been carefully balanced to drive better results with virtually no side effects. The two formulations are designed to work together so there is little overlap in active ingredients.

What it is formulated without:

Fragrance-, colorant-, paraben-, 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.

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.

    I get cystic acne around my chin and jawline and also very uneven bumpy skin on my cheeks. Using this for a couple of weeks cleared it up almost totally. I still get the odd spot but nothing like the big cysts I used to

    Could not ask for a more effective solution- going on about 3 months of using the clearly basics line and my acne is at least 65% better. Which is amazing! I don’t know if I’ll ever not use this go to duo.

#RealResults

See what others have to say about Clearly Basics.

@a_triple_shot_of_e Opening up about my acne struggle!

Most of my acne comes from wearing makeup all day & then going right into sports. Even though I would use facial wipes before I started sports, I still broke out! The more I would try to hide it, the worst I made it. I have tried everything… when @clearlybasics reached out I thought, why not try it && surprisingly IT WORKED!!! After a few weeks my skin was clear.

Now unfortunately since I have been out of it, my acne is coming back. I will always be honest with y’all & if something doesn’t work, I will let you know!!! #clearlybasics WORKS!

@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.

@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🔮🧚🏽‍♀️

@amys.acne.journey 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!

@gabriela.akrapovic 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 ads 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! Thanks Clearly Basics!!

@myacnepage So there’s been some progress with my scarring🙌🏼🙌🏼🙌🏼.

These are Clearly Basics results for 1 month of using the lighten up, you can use CODE EMMA for 10% off at the checkout (only if u want)

Frequently Asked Questions

How is the Clear Out different from other products that claim to treat acne?

  • USP certified: The Clear Out is loaded with USP certified ingredients. While USP certified 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 we ensure effectiveness.
  • Multiple Actives: The Clear Out 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 the Power Duo?

The Power Duo consists of two different formulations. Use Lighten Up as a spot treatment after washing your face or using a toner but before using other lotions or serums. Apply the Clear Out after the Lighten Up.

Clear Out should only be applied in the evening and left on throughout the night. The Lighten Up can be used both morning and evening as the first lotion that you apply after washing your face or using toner. Both formulations are designed as leave-in formulations.

Can I use these products alongside my other skincare products?

In order to simplify your skincare routine, we’ve carefully blended multiple active ingredients into each bottle so that they work together to address multiple skin concerns. As such, we would recommend shelving any products you are using that are not effective at clearing clogs. In particular, discontinue the use of any products that contain an AHA or BHA unless you have extremely oily skin.

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 these two products if I have sensitive skin?

The Lighten Up can be used on sensitive skin. The Clear Out packs quite a punch so if you have sensitive skin, please apply the Clear Out once every three nights. If after 10 days applying alternate nights and you have no irritation, step up the frequency of application to eventually applying every evening.

Can I use the Power Duo on my back and body?

While the Power Duo was designed to be used on the face, you can also use it on your back or body.

Can I use this product if I have oily skin?

The Clear Out was designed for people with oily, acne-prone skin. The lotion base in the Clear Out leaves a light matte finish and over a three month period, you will see a reduction in oil production. For those with extremely oily skin, consider adding an AHA or BHA face wash into your routine. For normal and dry/sensitive skin, use a gentle cleanser that does not contain AHA or BHAs.

What types of acne scars does the Lighten Up help?

The Lighten Up will reduce the appearance of red post-acne marks. It is important to reduce these away as it lowers the chance that red marks will be exposed to UV and collect stubborn brown pigmentation.

If your post-acne scar has collected brown pigmentation due to UV exposure, we are currently working on an anti-brown scar formulation. This is anticipated to release by the end of 2019.

Please speak to your dermatologist concerning the correction of pitted or raised scars.

Can I use this product if I am trying to conceive, breastfeeding or pregnant?

It is safe to use the Clear Out when you are trying to conceive or if you are breastfeeding.

If you are pregnant and you ingest the Clear Out, there is a minuscule chance that retinol could cause birth defects. As such, consult your doctor if using the Clear Out while pregnant. 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 discontinue use?

It normally takes 6 to 8 weeks for a clog inside your pore to surface as a pimple. The Clear Out will flush these clogs out faster, often within the 5th week of use. As the existing clog surfaces, it may turn into a low-level breakout if the clog was small or a proper breakout if the clog was large. The Clear Out does not cause clogs. Rather, these were clogs that were already deep inside your skin before you started Clear Out 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 the Clear Out for rosacea, psoriasis, cystic or nodular acne?

The Clear Out was designed to clear clogged pores on acne-prone skin. If you have rosacea, psoriasis, cystic or nodular acne, please consult your dermatologist.

The Duo is not making any difference in my skin. Should I stop using it?

Clear Out is a lotion designed to remove the buildup of dead skin inside your pores. This process takes six to eight weeks as our formulations get deep into your pores to flush out the dead skin. We recommend finishing the bottle entirely before making a decision as to whether the Clear Out is effective.

The Lighten Up should start to show noticeable results after six weeks of use. Make sure to take “before” photos to track your progress!

Will certain skin conditions make the purge worse?

People who have closed comedones (hard lumps under the skin) believe that their purge is worse as compared to those with open comedones. It is understandable to have this perception as these users were not used to seeing clogs surface. It is necessary to flush out these clogs by forcing them to the surface in order to get clear skin. However, you can reduce the pace/strength of this purge by applying the Clear Out only every alternate evening for the first eight weeks. Once your skin has adjusted, step up to the nightly application.

How can I tell the difference between a reaction and a purge

Please consult with your dermatologist or send Clearly a message via our Facebook page. In general, there are several tell-tale signs to look out for:

  • 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.

Will Clear Out give me 100% clear skin

No product or procedure can guarantee 100% clear skin. The Clear Out will make you less acne prone by perpetually flushing out dead skin and clogs before they can accumulate inside the pore to form a blockage. It is still possible for these blockages to form while using the Clear Out but the chances are notably lower.

Can I use the Clear Out along with my facial?

Ahead of your visit, let your aesthetician know that you are using Clear Out. The full ingredient list is posted under the “Ingredients” tab. Clear Out gives you a perpetual peel which means that any chemicals that applied to your skin will be more quickly absorbed. If you are concerned about sensitivity, do not apply Clear Out in the evening after your facial.

Do I need to constantly use this product once I start?

No. Once users have been breakout free for at least three months, they can reduce the frequency of application to every 2-3 nights. Eventually, they can “graduate” from the Clear Out and try our yet-to-be-released skin maintenance line.
