The Gold Standard

To stop acne, you need a lotion that can simultaneously flatten existing pimples while making future acne harder to form. If you look at the playbook which dermatologists use to treat acne, retinoids are the dermatologist's first choice for treatment followed by AZA.

What is Retinol?

Retinol (a gentler variant of retinoids) is a derivative of vitamin A which is common in carrots, eggs and sweet potatoes.

"Retinol is the absolute backbone of an acne treatment¹ since they treat acne by de-clogging pores. They also work to normalize skin cell turnover and act as an anti-inflammatory. Furthermore, have been proven to improve skin discoloration and texture and, therefore, restore the skin from prior outbreaks," - Melissa Levin, MD. ²

Retinol flushes out dead skin and flushes out clogs trapped inside your pores. When your pores are unclogged, pimples and blackheads rarely form.

It also stimulates new skin cell growth, so it will give your skin a smoother and more even texture. This can make superficial acne marks less obvious.

AZA - Calms and Improves Skin Tone

AZA naturally occurs on your skin and it is the anti-inflammatory agent in aspirin.

When used as a topical lotion, AZA will help to flatten existing pimples and reduce future breakouts simultaneously. Furthermore, it helps to fade the appearance of scars. With so many benefits, it is little wonder why dermatologists often give their patients a topical retinoid and an AZA lotion to stop their breakouts.

Ingredient Synergy

By combining retinol with AZA in the right percentages, we have created a formulation that can drive better results with less side effects than using each of the two formulations individually. This powerful combination has shown a 98% success rate in driving a noticeable reduction in acne after just a single bottle.

Enter: Clear Out Clarifying Lotion - Powerful Yet Gentle

Most acne products only have a SINGLE active ingredient. However, to maximize effectiveness and minimize irritation, Clearly Basics spent years formulating Clear Out so that it contains BOTH retinol + AZA. It is well tolerated by people with normal / oily skin.

This unique combination flattens existing pimples, reduces redness and makes it harder for future pimples to form by flushing out dead skin before clogs can accumulate inside your pores.

Seeing Through the Cycle

The Clear Out provides a gentle, perpetual exfoliation by flushing out the dead skin trapped inside your pores.

Depending on how many clogs you have when you first start, Clear Out will "purge" out the clogs trapped inside your pores. Most will just come out as small flakes but the larger clogs may surface as breakouts.

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. See below:

Here are some of our stories below. These are users who have documented their entire acne journey on Instagram, including products they have used before they started Clearly Basics:


Mim (@mimandskin), a teacher from Southampton, battled hormonal cystic acne for over 6 years before she tried Clear Out

“Out of everything I’ve tried over the 6 years I’ve battle acne on and off it’s by far stood out as being one of the most effective with no side effects (after the initial “purge”). I’ve used nothing but Clearly Basics for 11 months now and it still exceeds my expectations!”


Or how about Toni (@xx.tonilumsden), a stylist from Hertfordshire?

She spent over $6500 in acne products and treatments that did nothing for her acne…

Then she discovered the Acne Defense Duo and it changed her life…

Never in my life did I imagine my skin would be this clear! Clearly Basics has completely transformed my skin!”


Alisha (@skinwithak) suffered from severe acne and went through three rounds of oral medications before discovering Clear Out:

All I can say is ‘Clear Out’ by @clearlybasics is a Godsend ❤️ It doesn’t leave me overly dry or flaky which most retinol creams did.” "I wish I came across Clearly Basics before starting oral medication as I would have purchased these and wouldn't have had to put my body through so much!"


Or Ella (@_myskinstory), an aesthetician and a makeup artist who has not found anything like Clear Out to keep her breakouts under control.

"Clear Out is my favorite and most recommended product to any of my followers who suffer with mild-acne as well as post-acne suffers. The combination of ingredients are unique and work THE BEST in keeping spots at bay as well as improving acne marks & scars."


FAQ

How is Clear Out Clarifying Lotion any different from other retinol or AZA products?

Most products in the market contain only a SINGLE active ingredient so it does not use multiple pathways to address your skin concern.

Using multiple ingredients simultaneously is more EFFECTIVE, but getting the percentages correct in order to maximize synergy is difficult without precision machinery.

Every ingredient in Clear Out took years to balance in order to maximize synergy: ingredients work together to address your skin concerns with better results and less side effects.

I have sensitive skin. Can I use Clear Out?

Clear Out can work on its own for 95% of the population. The formulation is gentle yet powerful enough to tackle many cases that would otherwise require prescription medication.

For the 5% with very sensitive skin, add the Protective Moisturizer. Using Clear Out with the Protective Peptide Moisturizer will ensure that it works for even the most sensitive of skin. Protective Peptide Moisturizer contains a wealth of antioxidants and botanicals that nourish your skin and peptides that simulate your lipid barrier to regrow.

This moisturizer reduces your skin's sensitivity and reduces general redness/blushing. It doesn't clog your pores even on the most sensitive skin!

 

I Have Oily Skin, What's Best for Me?

Acne and larger pores are often attributed to oily skin.

As pores are clogged, oil may not reach its intended target leading to a vicious cycle of overproduction (clogged pores -> more oil production -> more clogged pores).

Thus we designed SH+ Matte Hydrating Serum to break the oil production cycle. It keeps your skin matte and supple so that your skin does not need to overproduce as much oil during the day!

What if it doesn't work on my skin?

Clear Out is so EFFECTIVE that you will get a full 90-day money back guarantee if you do not see a noticeable improvement after your first bottle. T&Cs apply.

This moneyback guarantee has been on every bottle of Clear Out and we have seen over +98% success rate.

Directions for use?

Clear Out is only used in the evening as part of your night-time routine:

  1. Wash your face with a cleanser
  2. Apply toner (if applicable)
  3. Apply Clear Out (leave-in lotion)

If you finish an entire bottle and don’t see any results…

You’re entitled to a full refund within 90 days! T&Cs apply.

Comments: Any ideas on how to get rid of brown skin damage
Skin defence

Marks of sun damage are still there they haven't faded much after using twice a day for 60 days. . I will continue until product is finished. I'm a bit disappointed

I am so happy that I stumbled upon clearly basics on instagram. I was skeptical at first but decided to give it a try and bought clear out clarifying lotion. It's been 2 months and my skin has improved a lot. I can see significant reduction in pores and acne.

Amazing

After years of medication and products, I decided to try clearly basics. In just 6 weeks my skin has calmed and I am now able to treat scarring.

So glad to have found these products!

Finding products that helped to control my acne without irritating my sensitive skin has always been a huge challenge. The clearly basics products have been my saviour, I can't recommend them enough ☺️

Here one day, gone the next!

After success with Clearly Basics for my acne scars, I stocked up with all of the active acne products to prepare myself for how angry my acne would get when going off hormonal birth control. I have tried and failed twice as my acne comes back so bad that I just start taking it again. This time I have been using clearly basics without fail every day (lighten up and clear out). I have had 3 pimples start to form and I use ‘Stop Spot’ and the next day instead of a much redder, much angrier pimple with a big white head - the pimple is gone! I have been very happy with this product. I’m one month down (typically when acne gets the worst) - let’s do this!

I love that these products are gentle on my daughter skin.

This skin care routine is the o lay one that has helped clear up my daughters skin.

My daughters skin is really starting to look better!

Comments: The only thing I now need to use to keep my skin clear.
The holy grail for clearing hormonal acne.

This is the only product that I have needed to keep my skin clear since discovering it about 2 years ago, after suddenly developing cystic hormonal acne at the age of 25. I now only need to use it every second night, so it's incredibly affordable. It has also never irritated my sensitive skin and it has faded previous acne marks to truly clear my skin. After years of trying expensive supplements/products/harsh prescription creams, Clear Out was the only thing that gave me long-lasting results.

Skin Type: Oily
Clearly Basics is the only product that has helped my Adult Acne

I have always struggled with dehydrated acne prone skin. Every month like clockwork I would get a new breakout on my chin or cheek area. These included large cystic acne that by the time they came to a head would take me months to clear. With new breakouts each month this created more & more spots before the first could heal leaving more hyper pigmentation spots that never have time to clear. Clearly basics changed all that for me. It gave my skin a chance to heal and reduced the number of breakouts each month. When I do get a new breakout it resolves itself quickly with less scarring and redness. Now that the acne is under control the products are helping to eliminate the remaining hyper pigmentation spots left from years of acne. I have not been using the product for long but I will continuing relying on this product and look forward to the day I can happily look in the mirror at a smooth clear & even complexion some day soon.

Comments: Product consistency in terms of smoothness/coarseness/stickiness/ is sometimes a miss, don't believe it affects the result provided.
Great Combo

Have seen great improvements by using these 2 items concurrently, hard to fault and wil continue purchasing.
