Emma Taylor, 15, a student from Manchester had struggled with severe acne for over 6 years.
“I used to look in the mirror and try to imagine what I would look like with clear skin … I couldn’t.”
She tried an endless list of skincare products and diets to no avail.
After three years of breakouts, Emma managed to get off the wait list for a dermatologist. Antibiotics only made things worse but six hard months of prescription oral medication helped to calm down her cysts.
However, she was left with persistent red acne scars and could not find a product to fade away the red scars. She used a number of acids, peels and cleaners which only irritated her skin, leaving her cheeks flushed and sensitive.

The #acnecommunity had been talking about Clearly Basics and she was happy to find a formulation specifically designed for post-acne red scars. These red marks are residual blood left behind from the inflammation and the Lighten Up uses essential oils to flush out this residual blood.
Within a month, the Lighten Up had significantly faded the appearance of her red scars.
To knock down the general redness in her cheeks, Emma used the Protective Moisturizer which is loaded with peptides. These amino acids are the building blocks for your skin and paired with antioxidants, the Protective Moisturizer can significantly reduce redness, sensitivity and improve the overall texture of your skin.
Emma saw significant improvements when using the Moisturizer and Lighten Up. They were originally designed to counter the harsh effects of prescription oral medication.
In order to keep her pores clear and to speed up the results of the Lighten Up and Moisturizer, Emma uses the Clear Out every evening. She still gets pimples occasionally but the Clear Out helps to flatten them quickly.
“I started using Clearly Basics and now a lot of those spots have gone… no joke!! ❤️”

@myacnepage My scarring at the moment, i am honestly very very happy with it. When i think back to almost 1 year ago i feel very lucky to have skin like i do now! My scars are still here, they remind me daily of the struggles that i went through but they push me to keep going and that’s why i’m posting about it right now.
I would say that the product that helped these reduce in prominence was @clearlybasics LIGHTEN UP (not an AD) and you can use my coupon code EMMA if you do fancy any money off, but this is in no way sponsored i’m just voicing my opinions. The three near my temple are definitely most prominent, then i have lots of dipped ones that you can see when i stand directly under a light.
These used to make me feel very conscious but now i’m finding it easier, remember it will get better i don’t know when but acne always get better don’t dwell on your acne but focus on being the confident, amazing person you are acne or no acne!
My skin yesterday, after a full day! I have been getting small spots it I think this is stress because of exams coming up, so I’m not too bothered about them. – I started using Clearly Basics and now a lot of those spots have gone… no joke!! ❤️ – Emma xxx

@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!
@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 🙂
@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.
@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!
@amynuramira I have been struggling with acne for 10 years. This is by far the best product. I started out with brown pigmentation (acne marks) and a lot of tiny bumps of acne on my forehead, cheek and nose (kind of like sand paper). As soon as I started the Clear Out and Lighten Up, my acne bumps got smaller and smaller. My brown pigmentation began turning lighter (reddish pinkish).
Initially, when I started using it, I didn’t really get a ‘purge’ it was just a small amount of break outs which went away in a few weeks. Now my hormonal break outs are not as terrible as before, they still appear but barely noticeable.
My skin is acne free, pigmentation are still there but they’ve improved tremendously. The Clear Out does not dry out your skin at all, even when I apply makeup on, it’s not patchy.
@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.
