TLC for Sensitive Skin

Finding the right moisturizer when you have sensitive skin is a risky mission. One wrong move and you might find your skin stinging, burning, and turning red. Protective Moisturizer takes away the guesswork with a gentle formula that will never irritate your skin. In fact, it is packed with soothing aloe vera, skin-repairing peptides, and the natural antioxidant resveratrol to help calm redness, reduce sensitivity, and protect skin from damage. With daily use, skin goes from dry and sensitive to smooth and healthy!

Perfect Partner to Prescriptions

Are you on prescription or oral medication? Protective Moisturizer was first designed to be used with Clear Out, our retinol-powered lotion for clearing clogged pores. As such, the calming and nourishing effects of the moisturizer will help your skin better accept the strength of retinoids and acne medication, preventing sensitivity and dryness.

@_myskinstory 😭 I feel like I’m an addict and someone has taken away my drugs 😂

Saturday night I came to the end of my @clearlybasics Clear Out bottle. After consistently applying it every night for 3 months along side Niacinamide & Zinc so last night I had nothing to apply. (Right picture: a few days previous. Left picture: This morning) As soon as I woke up I knew it different feel great! 😭

Regardless off the other amazing benefits that a 2% Retinol & AZA has; I JUST WANT MY GLOW BACK!! I’ll dedicate my next post to the ingredients and how they ‘clearly’ work!!

@fi_ding I just wanted to post my progress, firstly to thank Clearly for giving me my confidence back! I have suffered on and off with my skin for years, the contraceptive pill kept it under control for a long time but since stopping any hormonal contraception my skins been up and down like a yo-yo! I really didn’t want to go down the route of prescription oral medication, personal choice, so when I read about Clearly Basics (after ALOT of research) I decided to give it a go. Even after a few weeks I could tell a difference, and after a few months, the difference is huge! My skin was angry, painful and inflamed. Its now way way calmer, with only a couple of spots popping up around that time of the month. And I’m overjoyed with that! I next plan on tackling the red marks left behind so I can feel even more confident make up free. It does take time, but be patient, and consistent, and it will work! No foaming face washes seem to have helped for me too. Thanks again clearly 🤗😀

@celesterobinson This company is honestly incredible! I have been struggling with really painful hormonal cystic acne for years. I was prescribed oral medication, but decided against taking it because of all the side effects. So I did some research and found Clearly Basics! I have been using the Power Duo for 3 months and the progress my skin has made has been amazing! It has cleared my skin without causing any irritation or sensitivity. I am finally at the stage where I can leave the house without makeup! My skin is clear!! The customer service is also very personal and efficient. I don’t have enough wonderful things to say about these products, they literally saved my skin.

FAQ

How is Protective Moisturizer different from other moisturizers in the market?

  • For acne-prone skin: Protective Moisturizer was designed for people who are using Clear Out or other retinoid products. It is a non-comedogenic formulation that absorbs quickly and leaves a matte finish.
  • Reduces redness: Protective Moisturizer has several ingredients that help to calm redness.
  • US Pharmacopeia (USP) Certified: We use medical-grade ingredients which are far more effective than mass-market products. While USP-certified ingredients cost a lot more than their cosmetic-grade counterparts, they ensure a level of purity and potency. Ultimately, this means we ensure effectiveness. In fact, Protective Moisturizer is so effective it has become a cult favorite of flight attendants who deal with dry air environments.
  • Multiple Actives: Protective Moisturizer has multiple active ingredients which have been carefully balanced so that they work together in synergy.
  • Transparency: We keep the reviews section of our Facebook page open. You can see that the reviews are from real users who have used our products. Most acne brands have shut down the reviews section of their pages or have directed their reviews to a website where they can filter to show only the good reviews.

How do I apply Protective Moisturizer?

Apply 1-2 pumps onto a clean, dry face and as the final step of your skincare routine. You can also use the moisturizer on your body and hands.

What are peptides and how do they benefit my skin?

Peptides are the amino acid building blocks of your skin. As you use Protective Moisturizer, it will give your skin a constant supply of raw materials so that it can quickly repair.

Can I use Protective Moisturizer on oily skin?

Protective Moisturizer was designed for people with oily, acne-prone skin. It absorbs quickly and leaves a light, matte finish. However, if you have very oily skin, consider using our serum-based Matte Hydrator.

    I am super happy with these products. I have been struggling with acne and scars for a little over a year now after I decided to go off birth control pills. I have never in my life struggeled with acne before. I went to my doctor who prescribed a face wash and antibiotics. She also recommended some moisturizers. This whole treatment dried my face up and my skin was peeling and burning for three weeks. A little while into this treatment i started using Cleary Basics Power Duo and Protective Moisturizer and I loved it. This moisturizer actually keep my dry skin hydrated without being oily and that is just with a tiny amount. I highly recommend it for people with dry skin.

    Other than the Power Duo, I’ve also tried the Protective Moisturizer. This moisturizer is so much different than those in the market. Most of the moisturizer that I had used always turned my face to be very oily after a few hours. However, this one keep my face moisturize throughout the day and it is not oily as compared with the other brand moisturizers.

    The moisturiser has been great and definitely a good product to use with the clear out and lighten up, I am ready to order again and this time I am going to try the matte hydrator to see which my skin prefers but I defo would use the moisturiser again as it seems to have helped my skin along side using the clear out and lighten up.

    As a flight attendant, I have to deal with super patchy dry skin and an oily face after touchdown from flights. Air in the cabin can get pretty dry and it is such a challenge if you are constantly in these conditions. No moisturizer was suitable for my combination skin until I used the Clearly Basics Protective Moisturizer. It can last the whole day and I do not have to worry about having peeling skin especially when I land in cold countries with lower temperatures! It is an antioxidant, non comodegenic moisturizer which does not clog pores and definitely makes your skin brighter! It is my holy grail product because it makes my skin looks so much CLEARer everyday. Thank you Clearly for such a superb service, and of course creating products that is not only affordable but does wonders to our skin! Try it to believe it!

    Amazing! The only moisturizer that nourishes my face with all the right oils leaving it feeling fresh, without leaving my skin feeling oily.

    This is a great moisturiser. I can feel it working straight away and my skin feels nourished and looks smoother. It does not leave my skin feeling greasy and is a perfect base for make up.

    My skin feels sooo healthy and glowy after using the protective moisturiser in my AM and PM routine. I use it alongside the clear out and lighten up formulas and they all work very well together.

    This moisturizer is amazing. Seriously. I’ve had SUPER OILY and sensitive skin my entire life; moisturizers for oily skin were often too much for my sensitive skin and I’d be red all day. I don’t usually wear a lot of makeup on a regular day, so if my skin is red, oh boy howdy I notice. Because it’s currently winter I decided to try the protective moisturizer instead of the the matte hydrator (also because this product boasts strengthening sensitive skin), and I have to say I’ve noticed a massive improvement since I began using this product over the last 2 months. This stuff feels soooo soothing when I put it on in the morning after the rest of my routine. Overall I feel like my skin tone has started to even out and there is definitely less redness than before. There’s no question that this is my new favourite product!

    I accidentally ran out of this moisturizer and INSTANTLY started breaking out again from the other products that I used to get me through until my protective moisturizer arrived. I will not ever run out again!
