Review of the Toner

Influencer Emma @myacnepage explains how the Toner primes her skin for better absorption of next formulation you apply. It is a gentle and hydrating formulation that tightens up your pores.

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.

Key Ingredients

Witch Hazel

A natural astringent and antioxidant that helps to reduce redness and excess oil.

  • Powerful antioxidant
    It contains many compounds with potent antioxidant properties, including gallic acid and tannins. Dr Thring et al, 2011
  • Reduces skin irritation
    Research suggests that applying witch hazel topically to sensitive skin may be beneficial in the treatment of irritated skin. Dr Hughes-Formella et al
  • Refines pores
    Acts as an astringent, causing your tissues to contract to help shrink pores, while also soothing your skin. Dr Leena et al, 2014

Cucumber Water

Primes your skin for the next formulation that is applied.

  • Primes your skin
    Skin’s ideal pH is 5.5, which is slightly acidic. When it’s balanced on 5.5, then skin is working to it’s optimum.

See what others have to say about Clearly Basics.

@_myskinstory 😭 I feel like I’m an addict and someone has taken away my drugs 😂

Saturday night I came to the end of my @clearlybasics Clear Out bottle. After consistently applying it every night for 3 months along side Niacinamide & Zinc so last night I had nothing to apply. (Right picture: a few days previous. Left picture: This morning) As soon as I woke up I knew it different feel great! 😭

Regardless off the other amazing benefits that a 2% Retinol & AZA has; I JUST WANT MY GLOW BACK!! I’ll dedicate my next post to the ingredients and how they ‘clearly’ work!!

@gabriela.akrapovic Absolutely so happy with this product! My cheeks were congested and had so many breakouts and redness I didn’t know what to do anymore. I tried everything. I kept seeing Clearly Basic showing up on my Facebook and Instagram and thought what the hell and decided to order the complete trio moisturizer pack. It came in cute packaging and the directions were clear. I started using it two months ago and my god there is a lot of improvement!! My cheeks are less congested and red. I have mostly dark spots but the lighten up is definitely helping with that! I rarely get any big breakouts and even if a pimple starts to show the Clear Out stops it in it’s track. The Protective Moisturizer is great for my sensitive skin and helps keep my skin feel moisturized but doesn’t make my skin go oily. I definitely would recommend this product and I can’t wait to see how my skin will be in the few months using Clearly Basics! Thanks Clearly Basics!!

@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!

@amys.acne.journey Yes I know the lighting is different but look at the difference in the texture 😍. Yes I still have acne, that hasn’t gone away however…the fact that my texture has improved has increased my confidence so much. I really do believe this is all down to @clearlybasics I’ve been using their power duo for about 3 weeks and I’ve noticed such a difference in the size of my acne spots…my face doesn’t hurt as much nor is as itchy as it was.

I would definitely recommend giving them a whirl it’s the only products that I can honestly say has made any difference to my skin. The difference it has made in 3 weeks is fab!

@beatlebarbs  Hey guys! So I rarely write reviews for products I purchase, but I’m going make an exception for Clear Out, because it literally changed my life (what a cliche I know).
I’ve suffered from acne pretty much my whole life. I had ups and downs but mostly downs. After I moved to London I was under a lot of stress and my body was a mess. So was my skin. I’m generally a happy and optimistic person, or at least I try to be, but acne made it impossible for me for a while. It got to a point where I couldn’t look at myself in the mirror without crying. I didn’t wanna go out or even meet my friends. My self confidence was nonexistent. I had severe anxieties and break downs. I wasn’t myself anymore. I sought the help of a GP and dermatologist but nothing worked. Antibiotics made my skin look even worse. ⠀⠀
Then I read about the Clear Out somewhere on internet and the reviews were great. Still a bit skeptical, I decided to give it a shot and thank God I did. My skin improved drastically and even though I still get a pimple or two every now and then, I am overall very happy with the results. It makes your skin glow, look fresh and healthier. ⠀⠀
For some people acne might seem as not a big deal and I feel like a lot of people underestimate it a lot and think of it as only a small “beauty defect”. It’s so much more than that though…it can affect your every day life, relationships, mental health and can lead to anxieties or depression. I’ve been through all that and THANK GOD I got out. Thank you so much Clear out for helping me to be myself again. I could not recommend this product enough!

@carliedaniel18 I have suffered with Acne since i was 13, I’m now 32, after spending years of medication, and spending absolutely £1000s on products that didn’t work i decided to try prescription oral medication, during the course it was probably the hardest 8 months of my life, i got all the side affects, and even though eventually it did clear my skin after being off it for just 3 months my skin got bad again especially hormonally! Every month my skin would break out bad again and it got to a point it just wouldn’t clear so once again i was back at square 1. I was spending £100s again on products, I then came across clearly basics on Instagram and had a look, although the reviews were good I was very reluctant as it wasn’t cheap and was i buying another dud that didn’t work! Eventually I gave in as I always do and it was the best decision ever, I’m on week 5 of using the “Clear Out” and I will never be without this stuff again, I cant believe I hadn’t come across this sooner, my skin has cleared up so much and I have even had my monthly hormones and I did not break out at all!! Its made my skin soft and glowy as well, it genuinely is everything in a bottle! If your thinking about it, JUST GET IT 🙂
