A Comparison of Hydrators
Joanne @acne.jo.urney compares the Matte Hydrator with a popular brand of hyaluronic acid. The Matte Hydrator contains pure ultra low molecular weight hyaluronic acid that penetrates into the skin so that it can actually do its job.
Review of the Moisturizer Trio
Actress Rhiannon @itsrhiannonmajor explains how the Protective Moisturizer strengthened her skin so that she could use the Clear Out. The Protective Moisturizer did not break her out even though she has very sensitive skin.
Keeping Your Skin Matte and Not Oily
Stylist Toni @xx.tonilumsden explains how she uses the Matte Hydrator to keep her skin supple and moisturized without the oily sheen all day.
Protective Moisturizer or the Matte Hydrator?
Teacher Mim @acneisntugly has combination skin so she alternates between the two. The Protective Moisturizer gives a nice bounce and glow to her skin without breaking her out.

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 Protective Moisturizer different?
This formulation is loaded with highest quality peptides + resveratrol that help stimulate your skin to repair. The Protective Moisturizer is a best in class formulation that simultaneously strengthens skin and reduces sensitivity and redness (a formulation you can’t find anywhere else on the market).
A potent antioxidant that relieves redness and protects the skin from UV damage.

When peptides help amp up your skin cells, they also help strengthen your skin barrier.

Why is the Matte Hydrator different?
The hyaluronic acid molecule is normally too large to absorb into the skin and many brands save costs by only including a small amount of micronized hyaluronic acid. Our formulation is 100% Ultra Low Molecular Weight (ULMW) hyaluronic acid … no shortcuts, only the good stuff that will actually absorb into your skin.
100% ULMW Hyaluronic Acid
Holding 1000x its weight in moisture, hyaluronic acid locks in moisture and revitalizes the deeper layers of the skin so that it is soft and smooth.
- Perfect for hydration
Naturally produced in your skin, hyaluronic acid is the key molecule involved in skin moisture. Dr Roth et al, 2012
- Absorbs quickly
The hyaluronic acid molecule is too large to absorb into the skin so you must micronize the molecule to 5nm so that it will readily absorb into the skin. Dr Jegasothy et al, 2014

The perfect set for those who want to test our Matte Hydrator 15ml and Protective Moisturizer 15ml.
Why the Matte Hydrator?
Ideal for oily or acne-prone skin, the Hydrator will moisturize without the heaviness and oil. Featuring sodium hyaluronic acid, which holds 1000x its weight in moisture, this hydrator keeps your skin soft without adding additional oil. Suitable for oily or combination skin as a primary moisturizer.
As compared to other hydrators which contain hyaluronic acid in a variety of molecular sizes, this product contains 100% ultra low molecular weight hyaluronic acid (pharma grade, USP certified). It is necessary to use ultra low molecular weight hyaluronic acid as normal hyaluronic acid is too large to absorb into the skin.
Why do people with oily skin need the Matte Hydrator?
If you have clogged pores, oil may not reach its intended target leading to a vicious cycle of overproduction (clogged pores -> more oil production -> more clogged pores). Break the cycle by properly hydrating your skin.

How is the Moisturizer different from other moisturizers in the market?
- Acne-prone skin: The 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: The Moisturizer has several ingredients that helps to reduce redness.
- Medical-Grade: We use medical-grade ingredients which are far more effective than mass-market products. The same pharmacy that produces our prescription medications also produces the Moisturizer. They share many of the same medical-grade ingredients as our prescription formulations.
- Multiple Actives: The Moisturizer has multiple active ingredients which have been carefully balanced so that each ingredient works together in synergy.
- Transparency: 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 acne brands have shut down the reviews section of their pages or have directed their reviews to a website where they can filter out only the good reviews.
