Testimonials

What to Expect With the Power Duo

Teacher Mim @mimandskin 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 & PIH Pigmentation

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

 

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?

Clear Out uses retinol + AZA to flush out dead skin and clogs. These two ingredients are the top choices for dermatologists and we’ve spent years balancing the concentration of these two ingredients into a single lotion so that it maximizes their effectiveness. AZA is also paired with pracaxi to quickly relieve redness and heal. (You can’t find this combination of ingredients 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

Naturally formed on your skin. AZA helps to calm redness, improves skin texture and brightens the skin. AZA pairs with retinol as AZA helps with hyperpigmentation and calming redness. Dr. St Surin-Lord & Dr. Miller

Benefits

Pracaxi Oil

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

Benefits

Volume: 30ml, 1.01 fluid ounces.
Each bottle is designed to last 3 months with nightly application.

Full Ingredient List +

water, alcohol, AZA, cetearyl alcohol, cyclomethicone, cetearyl ethylhexanoate, isopropyl myristate, PPG-3 benzyl ether ethylhexanoate, glycerin, glyceryl stearate, PEG-100 stearate, retinol, pentaclethra macroloba seed oil, pentylene glycol, lecithin, polysorbate 20, potassium phosphate, phenoxyethanol, ethylhexylglycerin


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

Bisabolol

An essential oil extracted from chamomile flowers, bisabolol is an excellent anti-irritant, soothing agent & a humectant to lock in skin’s natural moisture.

Benefits

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

Benefits

Volume: 15ml, 0.5 fluid ounces.
Each bottle is designed to last up to 3 months depending on the number of post-acne red scars present.

Full Ingredient List +

water, cyclomethicone, alpha-bisabolol, glycerin, chamomilla recutita (matricaria) flower extract, calendula officinalis flower extract, pentaclethra macroloba seed oil, isohexadecane, polysorbate 80, polysorbate 20, propylene glycol, sodium hydroxide, acrylamide/sodium acryloyldimethyltaurate copolymer, phenoxyethanol, ethylhexylglycerin

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.

    After the initial purge these products really have cleared up my skin and make my complexion brighter. Still have some stubborn breakouts especially around my period or after wearing makeup and a mask but the products seem to clear them up faster than other products. Onto my second bottles and hoping to see even better results. Patience is a virtue.

    I am in my early 30s and have had bad skin for as long as I can remember. It was particularly bad in recent years on my chin and jawline. Clear Out saved me! I had to persevere as had some purges (week 5 and less so week 8) but all of the literature explaining that this was normal really helped – I am now at about 12 weeks and have not had a single spot in a month! Thank you Clearly Basics 🙂

    This product has changed my skin. I never used to feel confident without makeup and I struggled with hormonal cystic acne. This alongside my favorite chemical exfoliant have transformed my skin. I have never been happy to wear BB Cream and a little powder as my foundation and I have never had as many people compliment on my clear skin … until I started using this! I seriously panic when it is empty and cannot live without it.

    My skin has cleared up from big flare ups. I have had many battles with acne and had many years without any breakouts after going to the doctors for treatments. I then had a huge breakout at the beginning of this year and tried many things but nothing worked! So I came across Clearly Basics and thought do I fork out more money for something that may not work? But I can sure tell you now I am so grateful I listened to my gut and went for it. I have been using the Power Duo on my skin for nearly 6 months now and it has cleared and healed my skin up nicely. I still get the odd spot here and there but overall, over time it has cleared up my skin bringing my confidence back. If you are considering it I could not recommend these products enough.

#RealResults

See what others have to say about Clearly Basics.

@gabriela.akrapovi 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 Clearly Basics 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 and I can’t wait to see how my skin will be in the few months using Clearly Basics! Thanks 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!

@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!

Michaela Holzhuter I’ve struggled with adult acne for years. I’ve spent hundreds of dollars trying to grab at the next promise for clear skin. Clearly Basics is the first brand that actually worked for me! It’s simple (it actually decreased the time I was spending caring for my skin), it’s scale-able (buy one product or by seven!), and it works. I couldn’t be happier with this product and the continuous progress it has provided!

@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!

@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.

Frequently Asked Questions

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

  • USP certified: 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: 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 Clear Out after the Lighten Up.

Clear Out should only be applied in the evening and left on throughout the night. 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 Clear Out is too drying, most users will apply the Moisturizer after applying Clear Out. If 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 Clear Out first before the Moisturizer.

Can I use these two products if I have sensitive skin?

Lighten Up can be used on sensitive skin. Clear Out packs quite a punch so if you have sensitive skin, please apply 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?

Clear Out was designed for people with oily, acne-prone skin. The lotion base in 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?

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, consult your doctor regarding the use of an over the counter topical retinol lotion.

Clear Out can also be used by men in all stages of life.

I am getting new breakouts while using Clear Out. Should I discontinue use?

It normally takes 6 to 8 weeks for a clog inside your pore to surface as a pimple. 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. 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 Clear Out for rosacea, psoriasis, cystic or nodular acne?

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 Power 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 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 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 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 Clear out, discontinue use.

Will Clear Out give me 100% clear skin

No product or procedure can guarantee 100% clear skin. 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 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 Clear Out and try our yet-to-be-released skin maintenance line.
