@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鈥檛 have enough wonderful things to say about these products, they literally saved my skin.

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!

@amysacnehealing Yes I know the lighting is different but look at the difference in the texture 馃槏. Yes I still have acne, that hasn鈥檛 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鈥檝e been using their power duo for about 3 weeks and I鈥檝e noticed such a difference in the size of my acne spots…my face doesn鈥檛 hurt as much nor is as itchy as it was.

I would definitely recommend giving them a whirl it鈥檚 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!

Will Stop Spot give me 100% clear skin?

No product or procedure can guarantee 100% clear skin. Stop Spot tamps down emerging or existing pimples but it does not hinder the formation of clogs in your pores. To block the formation of clogs, use Clear Out. It 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.

How is Stop Spot different from other acne treatments?

  • US Pharmacopeia (USP) Certified: Stop Spot is loaded with medical-grade ingredients. While USP-certified ingredients cost a lot more than their cosmetic-grade counterparts, it ensures a level of purity and potency. Ultimately, this means we ensure effectiveness.
  • Multiple Actives: Stop Spot has three active ingredients that have been carefully balanced so that they are more effective in stopping acne. This means that with lower concentrations (and fewer side effects), we will generate better results.
  • Pairings: Clearly Basics is a skincare line designed for acne-prone skin. We have numerous products that address every stage of a pimple. We highly recommend using Stop Spot with Clear Out, which will flush out the clogs which cause acne.

How do I apply Stop Spot?

Wash your face and pat dry. Use Stop Spot as a spot treatment on emerging and red, inflamed pimples. Wait 1 minute for the gel to absorb fully before applying other skincare products on top.

How often do I apply Stop Spot?

You can reapply Stop Spot several times a day, especially on emerging pimples in order to stop them in their tracks. It is important to reduce the inflammation in order to prevent tissue damage.

Can I use Clearly Basics products alongside my other skincare products?

In order to simplify your skincare routine, we’ve carefully blended multiple active ingredients into each Clearly formulation so that they work together to address multiple skin concerns. As such, we would recommend shelving other acne treatments aside from the Clearly Basics lineup.

Can I use Stop Spot if I have sensitive skin?

If you have issues with sensitivity, apply a non-comedogenic moisturizer before you apply Stop Spot. This will lessen the strength of Stop Spot until your skin adjusts.

What do I do about acne marks?

After the pimple has flattened, use Clearly Basics’ Lighten Up to reduce the appearance of red post-acne marks. Also, make sure you are applying a non-comedogenic sunscreen when you go outside. UV can quickly darken post-acne marks, making them difficult to remove.

Can I use Stop Spot if I am trying to conceive, breastfeeding, or pregnant?

It is safe to use Stop Spot when you are trying to conceive, and if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. Stop Spot can also be used by men in all stages of life.

I am getting new breakouts while using Stop Spot. Should I discontinue use?

Stop Spot treats acne once it is ready to break through the skin (this means it had been brewing for 6 to 8 weeks as a clog deep inside your pore). In order to stop clogs from building in your pores, use Clear Out. Clear Out is Clearly Basics’ flagship product and it will make future clogs harder to form.

Can I use Stop Spot on my back or body?

Yes, Stop Spot can be used on your back and body.
