As a hair stylist, I look at myself in the mirror everyday. My clients would question and comment on my skin, telling me to “cover it up”, “why is your skin like that”, “you should get help.”
I felt ugly, embarrassed, and ashamed of my appearance day in day out. I felt like I had done something wrong, that I didn’t take care of my skin when the reality was far from the truth.
“Some days I wouldn’t want to leave the house or let anybody see me if I was having a bad skin day.”
I had been to the doctors many times and I was given creams and tablets which were harsh and burnt a layer off my skin. So I put my trust into high street cosmetic brands.
Some of these cosmetics showed initial results but I never saw the progress I had hoped for (or paid for).
“My cupboards were full of high-end lotions, gels and creams that DID NOTHING for me.”

I was desperate to find a solution so I turned to aestheticians who offered cutting edge treatments that promised the world: dermarollers, vampire facials, microdermabrasion… you name it and I’ve probably tried it.
In total I had spent close to £5,000 in treatments that showed marginal results but my acne kept coming back.
When I had stumbled onto Clearly Basics, I had thought they were no different than the other cosmetic brands.
However, I was surprised to find how knowledgeable and responsive they were over chat. I was recommended the Complete Trio and decided to give it a try.

Even on first application, I knew these lotions were different. The lotions triggered a two week purge but afterwards I saw significant progress!
“My friends were astonished at how much my skin transformed even after 5 weeks of use.”
Even when I wasn’t done with my first set from Clearly Basics, I was so impressed with the results that I decided to write this article/review.
For those of you who have lost hope and feel like skincare companies only put out misleading ads to peddle their wares… I’ve been there.
“You only lose the battle against acne when you give up.”
So I want to encourage you to keep searching for gems out there like Clearly Basics.
With the power of social media, you’re just a DM away from getting honest advice from people who have been in your shoes.

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. There is something out there for everyone and in my case it is @clearlybasics.

The ingredients in @clearlybasics Clear Out is AMAZING for hyperpigmentation.
A complete GAME CHANGER!

@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.
@beas.bareskin Clearly Basics have been with me for about a week and I’m so happy I’ve been using their product!!!!!
My fave between these 3 is the “Lighten up” one because it has definitely helped with the redness! The redness on my cheeks are slowly dimming down and the texture of my skin is so soft and smooth.
You may not be able to tell cuz pictures don’t do it justice but if you were to have felt my skin before I used their products compared to now you can definitely feel the difference !!!
@roxyrogan I have struggled with hormonal acne for over 1 year and had tried every face cream, scrub & peel you could find! When I started with Clearly Basics my skin started to clear within using the first bottle of ‘Clear Out’! My skin is now on the road to recovery and I still use Clearly Basics ‘Clear Out, Protective Moisturizer and Lighten Up’ products every day! Highly recommend clearly basics to anyone who’s suffering from stubborn acne! 💛
@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!!
