Consistency and Patience Are Key

Now that you know what tools are effective in getting rid of the clogs, you simply need to have patience and commitment in order to get all of the clogs out of your skin.

A clog normally takes 6 weeks to emerge as a pimple. However, a closed comedone (hard lump underneath your skin) may take up to 5 months brewing as a clog before it finally surfaces as a cyst. As such, you will need to be patient and consistent with your skincare routine in order to determine what is actually working:


Whether it is Clearly Basics products or some other system you are using, commit to using an acne product or system for at least three months before making a decision as to whether it is effective.

If you have closed comedones, you may need to wait 5 months before these stubborn clogs finally flush out.

You will only know if an acne treatment is effective after you have finished an entire cycle (at three months). You should notice that new breakouts have decreased dramatically, otherwise it is time to move on.


The Clearly Basics line was designed to work together. Resist the urge to throw in additional products within the three month observation period as the use of multiple acne treatments will likely cause irritation and may even trigger a new wave of breakouts.

After the second week, you should be using Clear Out Clarifying Lotion every night for the entire bottle. Clear Out will break down clogs and flush out the dead skin trapped inside your pores.


As the name suggests, Clear Out will force out the clogs currently trapped inside your pores. This “purging” peaks at week 5 with a second smaller peak at week 8.

It is necessary for us to get rid of these clogs if you want to get clear skin. If we kept these clogs trapped in your pores, they would surface down the road as even larger pimples.

By the end of week 10, most of the clogs that were lurking in your pores will have been flushed out and you will turn over a new layer of skin that is less acne-prone.

If you have closed comedones, these clogs operate on a completely different timescale. These clogs may take up to five months to flush out.

By the end of the first bottle of Clear Out, we will have flushed out most of the closed comedones but the stubborn/large clogs will need the additional two months before they are all out.

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.

Skin Type: Combination

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 ☺️

Fresh Feeling

My skin feels so clean and still hydrated when I use this cleanser. It’s balancing and refreshing. My skin has responded really well to it and at times my skin can be sensitive. I highly recommend this product to anyone with relatively oily t-zone area

Very happy!

Love the texture, the minty scent and the lather.
I wish the bottles were a bit bigger HOWEVER they are just small enough to fly with.

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.
