Testimonials

A Comparison of Hydrators

Joanne @acne.jo.urney compares the Matte Hydrator with a popular brand of hyaluronic acid. The Matte Hydrator contains pure ultra low molecular weight hyaluronic acid that penetrates into the skin so that it can actually do its job.

Matte Hydrator or Protective Moisturizer?

Teacher Mim @acneisntugly has combination skin so she alternates between using the two. The Matte Hydrator reduces your skin’s oil production so that you can go longer without the oily sheen or reapplying makeup.

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 Matte Hydrator different?

The hyaluronic acid molecule is normally too large to absorb into the skin and many brands save costs by only including a small amount of micronized hyaluronic acid. Our formulation is 100% Ultra Low Molecular Weight (ULMW) hyaluronic acid … no shortcuts, only the good stuff that will actually absorb into your skin.

Key Ingredients

100% ULMW Hyaluronic Acid

Holding 1000x its weight in moisture, hyaluronic acid locks in moisture and revitalizes the deeper layers of the skin so that it is soft and smooth.

Benefits
  • Perfect for hydration
    Naturally produced in your skin, hyaluronic acid is the key molecule involved in skin moisture. Dr Roth et al, 2012
  • Absorbs quickly
    The hyaluronic acid molecule is too large to absorb into the skin so you must micronize the molecule to 5nm so that it will readily absorb into the skin. Dr Jegasothy et al, 2014

Volume: 30ml, 1.01 fluid ounces.
Each bottle is designed to last 3 months being applied in the morning.

Full Ingredient List +

water, sodium hyaluronate, carbomer, phenoxyethanol, ethylhexylglycerin

Key Facts

Ideal for oily or acne-prone skin, the Hydrator will moisturize without the heaviness and oil. Featuring sodium hyaluronic acid, which holds 1000x its weight in moisture, this hydrator keeps your skin soft without adding additional oil. Suitable for oily or combination skin as a primary moisturizer.

As compared to other hydrators which contain hyaluronic acid in a variety of molecular sizes, this product contains 100% ultra low molecular weight hyaluronic acid (pharma grade, USP certified). It is necessary to use ultra low molecular weight hyaluronic acid as normal hyaluronic acid is too large to absorb into the skin.

Why do people with oily skin need the Matte Hydrator?

If you have clogged pores, oil may not reach its intended target leading to a vicious cycle of overproduction (clogged pores -> more oil production -> more clogged pores). Break the cycle by properly hydrating your skin.

What it is formulated without:

Oil-, fragrance-, colorant-, paraben-, lanolin-free. PETA certified vegan and cruelty-free. This non-comedogenic formulation is freshly made in Singapore to ensure the highest quality.

#RealResults

See what others have to say about Clearly Basics.

@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.

@aishx I have been using this product for the last 3 months and I swear by it!

My nasty pimps went away within days, my blemish marks were lightened and the size of my pores decreased drastically! In fact I feel that my skin brightened up a lot and my makeup looked smoother too!

@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🔮🧚🏽‍♀️

@clearupchels Guys after using clear out from @clearlybasics for over a month everyday I do truly believe it’s made a MASSIVE difference. My face is smoother, tone is more even and I do think the stubborn spots are going quicker.

I payed for this myself and have not been asked to do this post, I just think If it’ll help someone else why would I not shout about it!

@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 !!!

@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.
