Ingredients

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 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.

Key Facts

Originally designed for our users who were going through a course of oral medication/isotretinoin, these two formulations will help to reduces the redness, improve texture and repair compromised skin.

What it does:

The Lighten Up will fade the appearance of red acne scars and the Moisturizer will calm sensitivity, general redness/blushing and improve texture. These two formulations were originally formulated to help users going through oral medication.

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.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why do I need two formulations?

We designed the Protective Moisturizer to help repair your skin and reduce general redness and sensitivity. The Lighten Up is part of this set as people with sensitive skin often have post-acne red marks that linger for a long time. The Lighten Up will help to quickly fade the appearance of these red marks so that there is less chance the marks would be exposed to UV and collect stubborn brown pigmentation.

In what order do I apply this Duo?

Here is the order of application:

DAY:

  1. Wash your face / apply toner.
  2. Lighten Up
  3. Moisturizer, sunblock or other products you normally use

NIGHT

    1. Wash your face / apply toner
    2. Lighten Up
    3. Moisturizer or other products you normally use

If there are products on this list that you normally do not use, just skip that step.

Can I use these products alongside my other skincare products?

You are free to use any products that do not cause irritation or clogs.

What type of redness does each formulation address?

The Moisturizer is loaded with peptides that strengthen your skin and reduce the general redness that you normally get when you blush. The Lighten Up will help to knock down the redness associated with a post-acne scar.

Can I use this Duo on my back and body?

Both the Moisturizer and the Lighten Up can be used for the face or body.

What types of acne scars does the Lighten Up help?

The Lighten Up will reduce the appearance of red post-acne marks. It is important to reduce these away as it lowers the chance that red marks will be exposed to UV and collect stubborn brown pigmentation.

If your post-acne scar has collected brown pigmentation due to UV exposure, we are currently working on a anti-brown scar formulation. This is anticipated to release by the end of 2019.

Please speak to your dermatologist concerning the correction of pitted or raised scars.

Can I use this product if I am trying to conceive, breastfeeding or pregnant?

These two formulations are safe to use for men and women in all stages of life.

Duo is not making any difference in my skin. Should I stop using it?

The Lighten Up should start to show noticeable results after six weeks of use. Make sure to take “before” photos to track your progress! The Moisturizer should start to show noticeable results after a month of consistent use.
