CLEARstem Clear Kit: Anti-Aging and Anti-Acne Skincare

Press Sample (Unaffiliated Links)

If you are having an issue with breakouts, then CLEARstem’s four piece kit, which features two serums, one cleanser-makeup remover and one exfoliating cleanser, might just be what your skin is seeking. This anti-aging & anti-acne skincare line is formulated to clear up breakouts, to help fade acne scars over time and to hydrate the skin while reducing the appearance if fine lines and wrinkles.

According to CLEARStem,

The real CLEARStem difference is that the line uses absolutely no pore clogging ingredients. According to co-founder Danielle Gronich, a cellular biologist and licensed esthetician who has her own acne-focused clinic in San Diego, “organic” isn’t the right strategy for acne. In fact, she says essential oils, coconut oil, shea butter, seaweed, algae and many more create instant “traffic jams” in the pores.
GENTLEclean ($39.00 value) is a purifying, detoxing & restoring cleanser that is good for dry, mature, sensitive, blemish-prone, combination and normal skin types. It removes makeup and dirt effectively, and without stripping the skin or leaving it taut and uncomfortable. Furthermore, it forms a very light lather and has a pleasant, but barely detectable, clean scent.

According to CLEARstem,

Excellent cleanser to remove all makeup and oil without stripping the skin. This blend is nourishing, non-drying, and even gets rid of mascara and foundation (gently, of course). Makeup artist approved.

Directions: Wet face with lukewarm water and apply a quarter-sized amount to your wet palms. Lather well; bring hands to face. Begin to gently massage cleanser into skin using circular motions (pressure should be light-medium). Massage into skin for 30-60 seconds. Use this time to take several deep breaths of the custom herb & fruit aroma. Rinse off thoroughly with lukewarm water; pat dry. Safe for eye makeup removal as well as a full body wash.

Ingredients: Water/Aqua, Sodium Lauroyl Methyl Isethionate, Glycerin, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Sodium Methyl Oleoyl Taurate, Sorbitan Oleate Decylglucoside Crosspolymer, Sodium Cocoyl Glycinate, Sclerotium Gum, Polysorbate 20 (naturally derived), Lauryl Glucoside, Coco-Glucoside, Camellia Sinensis (Green Tea) Leaf Extract*, Glycyrrhiza Glabra (Licorice) Root Extract*, Allantoin, Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Flower Extract, Cucumis Sativus (Cucumber) Fruit Extract, Emblica Officinalis Fruit Extract, Hydrastis Canadensis (Goldenseal) extract, Hippophae Rhamnoides (Sea Buckthorn) Seed Oil, Citrus Paradisi (Grapefruit) Fruit Extract, Citrus Paradisi (Grapefruit) Seed Extract, Capsaicin (Vitamin C Bioflavinoid), Hesperidin (Vitamin C Bioflavinoid), Citrus Reticulata (Tangerine) Peel Oil , Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C), Lactic Acid, Citric Acid, Jasminum Officinale (Jasmine) Extract, Mangifera Indica (Mango) Fruit Extract. Certified Organic*
VITAMINscrub ($44.00 value) is a smoothing, decongesting and brightening exfoliator that gently and effectively removes dead skin without irritating or stripping. It forms a luscious lather that is punctuated by the exfoliating bamboo particles that leave skin smooth, clean and luminous. It has a wonderful fruity aroma that is very satisfying, but it's not in the least bit overpowering.

According to CLEARstem,

Good for all skin types including dry, mature, sensitive, blemish-prone, combination and normal
Smoothing scrub designed for daily use. Environmentally-friendly bamboo particles act as a polish to resurface the skin and keep pores clear. Skin’s texture will appear smooth, refined, brightened, and pores will appear smaller.

Directions: Wet face with lukewarm water (never hot!) Heat kills skin cells. Apply a 50-cent piece-sized amount to your wet palms. Lather until it foams! Bring hands to face. Begin to gently massage scrub into skin using circular motions (pressure should be LIGHT). Massage into skin for around 20-45 seconds, focusing more on any areas of breakouts. AVOID DIRECT EYE AREA. Use this time to take several deep breaths of the custom fruit and herb aroma. We’d love if you used this time to give yourself props for all you did that day. 30-45 seconds is the ideal amount of time to VITAMIN scrub. If skin is dry, reduce to 15-20 seconds. Rinse off thoroughly with lukewarm water; pat dry. Smile because your skin is now smoother.

OTHER USES: May be used on the body as well, and helps eliminate bikini line irritation, ingrown hairs, and razor burn.

CELLrenew Collagen Stem Cell Serum ($59.00 value) is serum that is formulated to fade scars and hyperpigmentation (from acne scars and sun damage), and it features anti-aging and anti-acne ingredients to heal and calm the skin. I do not have acne or a lot of hyperpigmentation from sun damage, and therefore I am not sure about the extent to which it will treat those conditions, but I can say that my skin is calm, soft and my fine expression lines are lightly plumped because of the hyaluronic acid.  It has a light and clean aroma that is refreshing, but not long-lasting or assertive.

According to CLEARstem,

Hormonal support in two ways; ingredients like Saw Palmetto, Green Tea, and Reishi Mushroom regulate oil production, while Tumeric and B5 halt inflammation, allowing skin to re-balance and heal.

Good for ALL skin types, including dry, mature, sensitive, acne-prone, combination, and normal.
We created this product because our clients needed a serum to fade scars and brown spots left behind after breakouts & sun exposure. It is Anti-aging AND Anti-acne, calming, and completely non-toxic. Collagen stem cells along with our targeted botanical extracts and natural hyaluronic base have created the perfect formula to drastically improve the appearance of your complexion no matter what your skin is going through. We’ve got you covered from your teens to your 90’s – enjoy!

CELLrenew can also be used for post peel care as well as laser treatments, microneedling, and hair removal. Whenever the skin undergoes professional exfoliation or heat treatments, there will be inflammation that needs to calmed down ASAP. The fresh skin that has been brought to the surface also needs friendly stem cells to help regenerate quickly and aid in cellular renewal. This item also has hormonal helpers like Saw Palmetto which will calm the oil glands in the hair follicles to reduce the chance of breakouts as a side-effect of the treatment. Triple win!

Directions: SHAKE, SHAKE, SHAKE before use. We don’t use junk fillers or binders, so natural separation occurs. After CLEARity has had a chance to do its job, apply 2-3 pumps of CELLrenew over entire face. Massage into your skin for about 30 seconds. Massage motions are ideal for best results – circulation increases healing! Safe for whole face, lips and neck, just no eyelids.

Ingredients: Water/Aqua, Hyaluronic Acid, Isopentyldiol Epilobium Angustifolium (Willowherb) Extract, Proprietary Collagen Stem Cell Formula, Proprietary Enzymes, Ganoderma Lucidum (Reishi Mushroom) Extract, Aloe Barbadensis (Aloe Vera) Extract*, Serenoa Serrulata (Saw Palmetto/Palm Fruit) Extract, Trifolium Pratense (Clover Flower) Extract, Camellia Sinensis (Green Tea Leaf) Extract*, Citrus Grandis (Pink Grapefruit Peel) Oil, Frankincense Extract, Tasmannia Lanceolata (Mountain Pepper), Kunzea Pomifera (Emu Apple/Native Cranberry Fruit) Extract, Syzygium Luehmannii (Riberry Fruit) Extract, Curcuma Kwangsiensis/Curcuma Wenyujin Rhizome (Turmeric) Extract, Panthenol (Vitamin B5).

CLEARity Mandelic Acid Smoothing Serum + Vitamin C ($64.00 value) is a smoothing and detoxing serum that helps to clear acne-prone skin, and it helps to exfoliate dead skin cells and brighten the complexion. It gives skin a pronounced clarity and luminosity that is really noticeable. It has a light and pleasant citrus aroma, but it is neither long-lasting, nor in the least bit overpowering.

According to CLEARstem,

Excellent for all skin types including acne-prone, dry, mature, sensitive, combination and normal
Exfoliation serum to unclog pores and dissolve away extra skin and oil. With a perfect acid blend, specific pH, and stabilized Vitamin C bioflavinoids, you’ll experience skin that appears brighter, healthier, and free of blemishes. Because this serum also contains Vitamin C, you do not need a separate Vitamin C serum. Watch breakouts and fine lines disappear as your skin tone brightens dramatically.

Directions: At first, use only at night for a week or two. Let your skin adjust to the new level of exfoliation! After 10-14 days feel free to incorporate into your morning regimen as well! P.M. Apply 3 pumps to your fingertips, and then apply to face. AVOID EYE AREA. Massage into skin, then go chill for 15-30 minutes while CLEARity does its job. This is the perfect amount of time to watch a Friends episode and write down down what went well that day. Relaxation helps your skin, so get some. If after 10 days your skin is not dry, repeat this process in the A.M. as well. Use the 15-30 minutes to do something positive, like meal prep, play some tunes or plan out a happy day! May be used on other body parts that need some rejuvenation, like chest, tops of hands, any areas of old scars, or even the bikini line.

Ingredients: Water/Aqua, Mandelic Acid, Propanediol, Olive Glycereth 8 Esters, Glycerin, Hamamelis Virginiana (Witch Hazel) Extract, Tetrasodium Glutamate Diacetate, Xanthan Gum, Lactic Acid, Sodium PCA, Cameila, Sinensis Leaf Extract, Curcuma Longa (Turmeric) Root Extract, Citrus Paradisi (Grapefruit) Fruit Extract, Citrus Paradisi (Grapefruit) Seed Extract, Capsaicin, Hesperidin, Citrus Reticulata (Tangerine) Peel Oil, Ascorbic Acid, Citric Acid, Citrus Sinensis (Orange) Oil, Sodium Lactate, Natural Fragrance.

  1. Why didn't they have products like this when I had hormonal acne? I would have been so grateful for them.

  2. First time I’ve heard of this brand. Will check it out

    1. It's a really good brand, and definitely worth knowing about for people who are seeking anti-aging anti-acne skincare.

  3. Though not for me, I will remember CLEARstem and recommend it to those seeking anti-aging skincare that will also address acne concerns

    1. Definitely not something that you would need, but really wonderful for people who want anti-aging skincare that treats acne too!

  4. I have tried so many different products for my adult cystic acne and Dermalmd by far is one of the few products that actually work for me. I apply it at night on any new pimples and wake up in the morning and it’s already basically gone. I recommend Acne Dermalmd Serum to anyone that’s struggling with adult acne!

    1. Hi Alycia, It is so great that you found something that really works for you! Thank you for sharing.
