Save$12 as a set

You may be looking to leave your mark on the world but acne doesn’t have to do the same on your skin. This trio has all you need to clear clogged pores, and reduce the appearance of red and stubborn brown acne marks that often linger long after pimples have cleared.


  • Lighten Up calms skin and fades the appearance of red post-acne marks
  • Dark Mark Defense fades the appearance of more stubborn and older brown acne marks, sun spots, age spots, and melasma
  • Clear Out flushes out clogged pores, which are the root cause of acne
  • Expect improved skin tone and texture with less noticeable red acne marks and brown marks after the first set. Brown marks typically take up to two years to fade but DMD speeds this process up to six months so by the second set, you will see even greater results.
  • PETA-Certified Vegan
  • PETA-Certified Cruelty-Free
  • Non-Comedogenic
  • Fragrance-, Colorant-, Paraben-, Lanolin-Free

90-Day Money-Back Guarantee

98% of Clear Out users see an improvement in their skin after their first bottle. If you don’t, you can get your money back on Clear Out.

@mimandskin Thank you @clearlybasics for being on this journey with me for the past 5 months.

No more green concealer or green primer! My skin tone is so much better, I don’t use as much foundation as I once did, I don’t constantly worry I look like I have chicken pox and I feel much more confident within my skin!

The power duo really has been an absolute game changer for my skin and I’m so glad I’ve shared my results day in and day out so we could all see this progression.

@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.

@myfriendacne At first I thought that my skin was THE thing that changed the most. It clearly is seeing from the surface. And here must say a huuuuge thank you to @clearlybasics for supporting me and give me the opportunity to take care of my skin.

After I looked at my pictures from last year I was shocked how my attitude has changed towards myself. I love myself more. I accept my skin, my body and my inner self so much more than a year before where I had the feeling to be perfect to my own imaginations and for other people.

How do the products in this set work together?

  • Clear Out is our flagship product. As the name implies, it flushes out the clogs and congestion in your pores, making it much harder for breakouts to form. When there are no breakouts, you will not get post-acne marks.
  • Lighten Up fades the appearance of new red marks left after pimples have flattened.
  • Dark Mark Defense (DMD) fades the appearance of older brown acne marks, as well as sun spots, age spots, and melasma.

Why is Clearly Basics different?

Clearly Basics is a skincare line designed for acne-prone skin. Every product in the lineup has been thoughtfully created to work together with little overlap in active ingredients.

CLEARLY BASICS IS EFFECTIVE. Every product in the Clearly Basics lineup uses medical-grade ingredients which ensure the purity and potency (and ultimately, the effectiveness) of the formulation. Most of our products use multiple active ingredients; when combined in the right mix, these ingredients amplify each other’s effectiveness. Our pharmacists then boost the formulations with botanicals, which are very effective in reducing potential irritation.

How do I apply the 3 products?

Wash your face and pat dry. Follow with your toner (if using).

Then, apply the two spot treatments – Lighten Up and DMD. These two products should be applied directly onto the red or brown marks. They do not harm normal skin but it can be wasteful to apply them to unaffected areas.

Wait 3 minutes and apply a pea-sized pump of Clear Out (at night only). Be sure to apply Clear Out before other night creams.

You should use a pea-sized pump of Clear Out lotion to spread across your entire face and the lotion should be left on all night. It’s that simple! We spent a lot of time working on the base of this formulation so that a pea-sized pump can spread across your entire face. At this rate, a single bottle should last 2.5 to 3 months.

Note that Clear Out packs quite a punch. As such, avoid using products which contain AHAs or BHAs until your skin has adjusted and you are not experiencing irritation. During the day, continue with your usual routine and use a non-comedogenic facial sunscreen with SPF+30 if you are going outdoors.

How often do I apply the 3 products?

Both Lighten Up and DMD can be used multiple times throughout the day. Lighten Up should be used on fresh red marks left after pimples have flattened while Dark Mark Defense should be used on brown marks. There should be little overlap between the two.

As for Clear Out, it should only be applied in the evenings. Start Clear Out with alternate nightly application. This gives your skin time to adjust to the strength of the formulation. Step up to nightly application after one week if no lasting irritation occurs.

Can I use this set alongside my other skincare products?

In order to simplify your skincare routine, we’ve carefully blended multiple active ingredients into each formulation 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 as Clear Out will do the heavy lifting in place of these products.

If Clear Out is too drying, most users will apply the Protective Moisturizer after applying Clear Out. If Clear Out is too strong for your skin, you can also apply the Protective Moisturizer before applying Clear Out. This should only be done for two weeks until your skin adjusts and we can then step it up by applying Clear Out first, before the moisturizer.

Can I use Lighten Up or DMD as a spot treatment on an active lesion?

Lighten Up and DMD are not designed to work on active lesions.

For active lesions, please use our spot treatment gel – Stop Spot (if you are in the US) or Calm Down (if you are outside the US). While the names are different, the formulation is exactly the same.

Can I use this set if I have sensitive skin?

If you have sensitive skin, apply Clear Out only once every three nights for the first week. As your skin adjusts to the strength of Clear Out, you can ‘step up’ by increasing the frequency to every other night and eventually, to every evening. Additionally, you can apply a non-comedogenic moisturizer before you apply Clear Out. This will lessen the strength of Clear Out until your skin adjusts. Clearly’s Protective Moisturizer was specifically designed to pair with Clear Out to help those with sensitive skin quickly adjust to the strength of the formulation.

Can I use this set if I am trying to conceive, breastfeeding, or pregnant?

It is safe to use this set when you are trying to conceive or if you are breastfeeding. However, if you are pregnant and you ingest Clear Out, there is a minuscule chance that retinol could cause birth defects. As such, consult your doctor if you are using Clear Out while pregnant. 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.

Will certain skin conditions make the purge worse?

People who have closed comedones (pimples that never surface but remain as 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 pimples 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 nightly application.

Can I use this set on my back or body?

Yes, you can use this set on your back and body. But do note the products were designed to be applied on the face. The skin on your back is much thicker than the skin on your face.

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 to surface.
  • 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 pores to form blockages. It is still possible for these blockages to form while using Clear Out but the chances are notably lower.

Can I use Clear Out along with my facial?

Ahead of your visit, let your aesthetician know that you are using Clear Out. The full ingredient list can be found in the ‘Key Ingredients’ section of this page. Clear Out gives you a perpetual peel which means that any chemicals 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 Clear Out once I start?

Nope. Once users have been breakout-free for at least three months, they can reduce the frequency of application to every 2-3 nights.

    My skin is softer and more even. After using this set for a couple of months now, I see a reduction in dark spots as well.
