What to Expect With the Lighten Up
Influencer Emma @myacnepage discusses how the Lighten Up removed her deep red acne scars. She also discusses how long it takes to see results.
What makes Clearly Basics different?
We’ve taken products that are normally sold in a dermatologist’s office at 3x the price and made it available for everyday consumers. We select medical grade (USP certified) ingredients when potency matters, but less expensive cosmetic grade ingredients when purity is not a concern.
We believe in transparency and post real results from real users along with their social media handle, allowing anyone to contact and ask them about their experience. We also encourage all users to document their journey.
Why is the Lighten Up different?
There are very few formulations on the market designed to fade the appearance of post-acne scars and even fewer formulations that are effective. Lighten Up’s formulation is one that you can’t find anywhere else on the market and we consider it the best in its class.
Active Ingredients: Lighten Up
- Calendula – A natural oil extracted from marigold flowers, calendula is an anti-oxidant that protects the skin against environmental damage. It increases hydration within the skin.
- Bisabolol – An essential oil extracted from the chamomile flower, bisabolol is an excellent anti-irritant. It is a soothing agent that acts as a humectant to help lock in a skin’s natural moisture.
- Pracaxi Oil – This tea tree oil found in the Amazon is very effective in promoting wound healing and to soothe irritation and inflammation.
- Reduces hyperpigmentation: Teixeira et al, 2012
- Hydration: By hydrating the lesion, the skin does not need to produce extra collagen that may lead to textured scarring. Banov et al, 2014
- Keeping the surface clean: As a tea tree oil, pracaxi is effective in keeping open lesions clean. Dr Guimaraes & Dr Cunha, 2016
aqua, cyclomethicone, alpha-bisabolol natural, olea europaea fruit oil, glycerin, chamomille recutita (Matricaria) flower extract, tocopherol, calendula officinalis flower extract, acrylamide, isohexadecane, polysorbate 80, hydro swelling droplet polymer complex, sodium acryloydimethyl taurate copolymer, isopropyl alcohol, carbomer, pentaclethra macroloba seed oil, methylparaben, propylparaben
Volume: 15ml, 0.5 fluid ounces. Each bottle is designed to last 1-3 months depending on the number of post-acne red scars present.
Breakouts come and go but the red post-acne mark can linger much longer. Lighten Up is our anti-redness formulation designed to fade the appearance of red marks after the breakout has subsided.
What it does:
Packed with essential oils. The Lighten Up uses –
- Pracaxi oil creates a healing barrier over your skin.
- Bisabolol soothes the skin and reduces redness.
- Calendula is a natural anti-microbial that is loaded with anti-oxidants that protect your skin.
What it is formulated without:
Fragrance-, colorant-, 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.
The Lighten Up is used both morning and evening as the first formulation after you have washed/used toner. It is a leave-in spot application formula that works throughout the day/night to fade those pesky red scars. If you are using the Lighten Up alongside the rest of our product line, here is the order of application:
- Wash your face / apply toner
- Lighten Up (spot treatment)
- Moisturizer/Hydrator, sunblock or other products you normally use
- Wash your face / apply toner
- Lighten Up (spot treatment)
- Clear Out (can only be applied at night)
- Moisturizer/Hydrator or other products you normally use
If there are products on this list that you normally do not use, please skip that step.

@aishx I have been using this product for the last 3 months and I swear by it!
My nasty pimps went away within days, my blemish marks were lightened and the size of my pores decreased drastically! In fact I feel that my skin brightened up a lot and my makeup looked smoother too!
@pimpledgirl The 1st week was amazed! Fascinating skin texture, there were no stinging. The 2nd week were pretty same. The 3rd week – purging starred – bumpy skin, redness. The 4th week – same but I added #ProtectiveMoisturiser either from @clearlybasics and in three days redness was reduced. The 5-6th weeks – skin smoother, less red, breaking out badly. The 7-8th week – is it my skin? not red (even after washing as it used to be).
I’d say the amount of pustules has been reduced in 85%. I still have some tiny-tiny pimples and will keep going with mu treatment. • Honestly I’m very grateful to Clearly Basics • I’ll keep you updated.
@deannaskin Over the past month and a half I’ve noticed a massive change to the appearance and texture of my skin since using @clearlybasics. Honestly the most effective products (vegan of course) I’ve used all year. Not only has the redness of my spots reduced, but I rarely get painful under-the-skin bumps or huge whiteheads anymore. My scars have also faded so quickly 👀
If your skin is similar to mine I’d 100% recommend that you implement these products into your skincare routine.
I’m only a few weeks in using these products but the results have been so positive🔮🧚🏽♀️
@skinwithalisha @clearlybasics helped maintain my skin after accutane and honestly their products have helped so many, I get many DM’s thanking me for recommending clearly basics and how it’s helped them.
If I knew about @clearlybasics prior to accutane I would’ve definitely gone with using Clear Out for sure!
@startingtolovemyself ✨Not a pimple in sight!!!✨
It’s been about 3 weeks since I started using @clearlybasics clear out, lighten up and the protective moisturizer (the complete trio) and my skin has improved so much and I definitely think it’s from the Clear Out formula most of all!
It really is a miracle in a bottle! I’m excited to see how my skin changes even more in the next few weeks and months using them!
@acneisntugly Thank you @clearlybasics for being on this journey with me for the past 5 months.
No more green concealer or green primer! My skin tone is so much better, I don’t use as much foundation as I once did, I don’t constantly worry I look like I have chicken pox and I feel much more confident within my skin!
The power duo really has been an absolute game changer for my skin and I’m so glad I’ve shared my results day in and day out so we could all see this progression.
