See what others have to say about Clearly Basics.

@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!

@clearupchels Guys after using clear out from @clearlybasics for over a month everyday I do truly believe it’s made a MASSIVE difference. My face is smoother, tone is more even and I do think the stubborn spots are going quicker.

I payed for this myself and have not been asked to do this post, I just think If it’ll help someone else why would I not shout about it!

@a_triple_shot_of_e Opening up about my acne struggle!

Most of my acne comes from wearing makeup all day & then going right into sports. Even though I would use facial wipes before I started sports, I still broke out! The more I would try to hide it, the worst I made it. I have tried everything… when @clearlybasics reached out I thought, why not try it && surprisingly IT WORKED!!! After a few weeks my skin was clear.

Now unfortunately since I have been out of it, my acne is coming back. I will always be honest with y’all & if something doesn’t work, I will let you know!!! #clearlybasics WORKS!

@brittaneyshanae I swear the Power Duo (Clear Out and Lighten Up) are a GOD-send! I’ve been using both consistently for 3 months now and my skin has NEVER looked or felt better! I haven’t experienced a breakout since March and more than 80% of my hyperpigmentation is GONE!

I’m so grateful to have finally found a product that actually works for my skin!

If you’re dealing with acne breakouts and hyperpigmentation, you should def research Clearly Basics.

@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!

@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.

    The moisturiser has been great and definitely a good product to use with the clear out and lighten up, I am ready to order again and this time I am going to try the matte hydrator to see which my skin prefers but I defo would use the moisturiser again as it seems to have helped my skin along side using the clear out and lighten up.

    Other than the Power Duo, I’ve also tried the Protective Moisturizer. This moisturizer is so much different than those in the market. Most of the moisturizer that I had used always turned my face to be very oily after a few hours. However, this one keep my face moisturize throughout the day and it is not oily as compared with the other brand moisturizers.

    I was a skeptic over moisturisers, initially felt they would clog my already oiled up skin. Noticed a huge diff after using it for 3 months straight. Skin was less inflamed and not as oily as i thought it would turn out.

    I’m so Glad my Friend recommended me Clearly because I’ve never had a better skin after suffering a sudden breakout due to god knows what! Being a cabin crew, I had to deal with a super patchy dry skin and an oily face after touchdown from flights. Air in the cabin can get pretty dry and it’s such a challenge if you’re working in these conditions. No moisturizer was suitable for my combination skin until I used the clearly Moisturizer. It can last the whole day and I don’t have to worry about having peeling skin especially when I land in cold countries with lower temperatures! It’s an antioxidant, non comodegenic moisturizer which doesn’t clog pores and definitely makes your skin brighter! It is my holy grail product because it makes my Skin looks so much CLEARer everyday. Thank you Clearly for such a superb service, and of course creating products that is not only affordable but does wonders to our Asian skin! Try it to believe it!

  • Reduces redness: The Moisturizer is has several ingredients that reduce redness and inflammation.
  • Medical-Grade: We use medical-grade ingredients which are far more effective than mass market products. The same pharmacy that produces our prescription medications also produce the Moisturizer. They share many of the same medical-grade ingredients as our prescription formulations.
  • Multiple Actives: The Moisturizer has multiple active ingredients which have been carefully balanced so that each ingredient works together in synergy.
  • Transparency: Clearly keeps the reviews section of its Facebook Page open. You can see that the reviews are from real users who have used our products.

How do I apply the Moisturizer?

Apply 1-2 pumps on a clean, dry face and as the final step of your facial treatment. You can use the Moisturizer on your body or hands. It has become a cult favorite with Airline Flight Attendants who deal with dry air environments.

Can I use the Moisturizer on oily skin?

The Moisturizer was designed for people with oily, acne prone skin. It absorbs quickly and leaves a light, matte finish. If you have very oily skin, consider using our serum-based Hydrator instead.

What are peptides and how do they benefit my skin?

Peptides are the amino acid building blocks of your skin. As you use the Moisturizer, it will give your skin a constant supply of raw materials so that your skin can quickly repair.
