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.

 

Keeping Your Skin Oil-Free All Day

Joanne @acne.jo.urney explains how the Matte Hydrator keeps her skin matte, supple and oil-free for 8 hours, while allowing her makeup to last a lot longer without the need to blot.

 

Keeping Your Skin Matte and Not Oily

Stylist Toni @xx.tonilumsden explains how she uses the Matte Hydrator to keep her skin supple and moisturized without the oily sheen all day.

 

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.

    I have used many different brands of hyaluronic acid serum on my face and this is one of my favorites. This product does give you a matte look, I would recommend this product.

See what others have to say about Clearly Basics.

@startingtolovemyself ✨Not a pimple in sight!!!✨

It’s been about 3 weeks since I started using @clearlybasics Clear Out, Lighten Up and the Protective Moisturizer (the Complete Trio) and my skin has improved so much and I definitely think it’s from the Clear Out formula most of all!

It really is a miracle in a bottle! I’m excited to see how my skin changes even more in the next few weeks and months using them!

@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)

@amynuramira I have been struggling with acne for 10 years. This is by far the best product. I started out with brown pigmentation (acne marks) and a lot of tiny bumps of acne on my forehead, cheek and nose (kind of like sand paper). As soon as I started the Clear Out and Lighten Up, my acne bumps got smaller and smaller. My brown pigmentation began turning lighter (reddish pinkish).
⠀⠀
Initially, when I started using it, I didn’t really get a ‘purge’ it was just a small amount of break outs which went away in a few weeks. Now my hormonal break outs are not as terrible as before, they still appear but barely noticeable. My skin is acne-free, pigmentation are still there but they’ve improved tremendously!

@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! 💛

@carliedaniel18 I have suffered with acne since i was 13, After years of medication, and spending absolutely £1000s on products that didn’t work i decided to try prescription oral medication, and it was the hardest 8 months of my life. I got all the side affects, and even though eventually it did clear my skin after being off it for just 3 months my skin got bad again especially hormonally!

I then came across clearly basics, although the reviews were good I was very reluctant as it wasn’t cheap and could be another dud that didn’t work! Eventually I gave in as I always do and it was the best decision ever! I can’t believe I hadn’t come across this sooner, my skin has cleared up so much. It’s made my skin soft and glowy as well, it genuinely is everything in a bottle!

@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.
