What makes Clearly Basics different?
We’ve taken products that are normally sold in a dermatologist’s office at 3x the price and made it available for everyday consumers. We select medical grade (USP certified) ingredients when potency matters, but less expensive cosmetic grade ingredients when purity is not a concern.
We believe in transparency and post real results from real users along with their social media handle. We are one of the few acne-related brands who share real results … you are welcome to contact our users to verify and ask about their experiences.
Why is the Lighten Up different?
There are very few formulations on the market designed to fade the appearance of post-acne scars and even fewer formulations that are effective. Lighten Up’s formulation is one that you can’t find anywhere else on the market and we consider it the best in its class.
Active Ingredients: Lighten Up
- Calendula – A natural oil extracted from marigold flowers, calendula is an anti-oxidant that protects the skin against environmental damage. It increases hydration within the skin.
- Bisabolol – An essential oil extracted from the chamomile flower, bisabolol is an excellent anti-irritant. It is a soothing agent that acts as a humectant to help lock in a skin’s natural moisture.
- Pracaxi Oil – This tea tree oil found in the Amazon is very effective in promoting wound healing and to soothe irritation and inflammation.
- Reduces hyperpigmentation: Teixeira et al, 2012
- Hydration: By hydrating the lesion, the skin does not need to produce extra collagen that may lead to textured scarring. Banov et al, 2014
- Keeping the surface clean: As a tea tree oil, pracaxi is effective in keeping open lesions clean. Dr Guimaraes & Dr Cunha, 2016

Breakouts come and go but the red post-acne mark can linger much longer. Lighten Up is our anti-redness formulation designed to fade the appearance of red marks after the breakout has subsided.
What it does:
Packed with essential oils. The Lighten Up uses –
- Pracaxi oil creates a healing barrier over your skin.
- Bisabolol soothes the skin and reduces redness.
- Calendula is a natural anti-microbial that is loaded with anti-oxidants that protect your skin.
What it is formulated without:
Fragrance-, colorant-, 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.
The Lighten Up is used both morning and evening as the first formulation after you have washed/used toner. It is a leave-in spot application formula that works throughout the day/night to fade those pesky red scars. If you are using the Lighten Up alongside the rest of our product line, here is the order of application:
- Wash your face / apply toner
- Lighten Up (spot treatment)
- Moisturizer/Hydrator, sunblock or other products you normally use
- Wash your face / apply toner
- Lighten Up (spot treatment)
- Clear Out (can only be applied at night)
- Moisturizer/Hydrator or other products you normally use
If there are products on this list that you normally do not use, please skip that step.

@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🔮🧚🏽♀️
@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.
@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)
@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 !!!
@gemskin__ A little progress goes a long way! 🙌🏻 In the first picture I think my skin was purging from the first week of using @clearlybasics ‘Clear Out’. I believe I actually cried either before or after I took this photo, my skin was super painful and I felt so ugly and self conscious!
The second picture is 5 weeks after using Clear Out, just scarring (being helped by using Lighten Up) and no actives!
I’m so happy with the results so far using these products and they have been the only thing that has helped my skin!
@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!
