A Comparison of Hydrators
Joanne @skinjo.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.
Protective Moisturizer or the Matte Hydrator?
Teacher Mim @mimandskin 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.
Why is 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.
Improves skin elasticity, and skin appears smoother and firmer. Dr Schagen, 2018
- Repairs and rejuvenates the skin
Fades the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and pigmentation of photo-damaged skin. Dr Schagen, 2018
- Strengthens skin barrier
When peptides help amp up your skin cells, they also help strengthen your skin barrier.
- Boosts collagen
As a result, your skin become more firm (with the appearance of being more “plump”) and smoother complexion. Spec Sheet
Absorbs free radicals, harmful UV radiation and fosters healing of the skin. Dr Surjushe et al, 2008

Why is 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.

Oil-, fragrance-, colorant-, paraben-, lanolin-free. PETA certified vegan and cruelty-free. This non-comedogenic formulation is freshly made in Singapore to ensure the highest quality.
Why the Protective Moisturizer?

Designed for sensitive, dry, stressed or aging skin. The Protective Moisturizer uses –
- Resveratrol, a potent antioxidant that reduces redness and protects the skin from UV damage.

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 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 use USP certified medical grade 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.

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 calm 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.

See what others have to say about Clearly Basics.
@megdaviesx I’ve suffered with acne since I was 12 years old. Now at 25 I just accepted that I’d always have acne prone skin. When I came across Clearly, I had pretty much run out of hope, thinking ‘well why the hell not give it a go!’.
Only 2 months into my new routine, and I can’t believe this is my skin!! I am happy to go out of the house without makeup on but doing makeup isn’t a chore anymore either. My confidence has grown and I can’t believe I didn’t find Clearly sooner!
@theclearskinroad My @clearlybasics update!! The photos on the left were October 2nd and the photos on the right were today (October 11th).
I’ve been using the Power Duo for Clearly Basics for about 2 months now, and now starting to see quick results! My favourite is the “Clear Out” 🤗 Loving the results and exciting to keep using Clearly products!
@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.
@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!
@gemskin__ A little progress goes a long way! 🙌🏻 In the first picture I think my skin was purging from the first week of using @clearlybasics ‘Clear Out’. I believe I actually cried either before or after I took this photo, my skin was super painful and I felt so ugly and self conscious!
The second picture is 5 weeks after using Clear Out, just scarring (being helped by using Lighten Up) and no actives!
I’m so happy with the results so far using these products and they have been the only thing that has helped my skin!
@itsangels_makeup I’ve started using The Power Duo + Protective moisturizer nearly 6 months ago after many positives reviews that I’ve read.
The first thing that I’ve experience has been the “purge” coming with clear out and it can last a loooong time. So this review is for people like me who experienced the purge for more that a month or two: keep going.
Because when I was about to quit I’ve seen a huuuuge difference with my skin. My skin is so much smoother than it was before Clearly Basics. So keep going, use Clearly Basics and stay positive!
