See what others have to say about Clearly Basics.

@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.

@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!

@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!

@xx.tonilumsden This is me 5 weeks into my skincare journey with @clearlybasics.

5 weeks ago, 5 months ago, and even 5 years ago, I had lost all hope for my skin and appearance. Now I have regained that hope and positivity because I know that I am using amazing skincare products by @clearlybasics that actually do work without being harsh on my skin.

Just because you feel like nothing is working doesn’t mean you should give up on hope.

@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.

    Clear Out has changed my skin for the better! I had an initial break out in the first week but very soon after that my skin changed. I don’t get many break outs anymore and when I do, I apply clear out at night and by the morning they have significantly reduced in size. The texture of my skin is completely different, so much smoother with no lumps and bumps. It’s an amazing product and the customer service is fabulous!

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:


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


    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.
