Clearing Duo

Clearing Clay & Clearing Mist

  • for body
  • acne treatment

This duo is formulated to work together to treat skin concerns that come with active lifestyles (or just the frequent wearing of tight, stretchy pants). Sweat and heat create humid environments, cultivating a breakout-causing imbalance of microbes trapped against backs, necks, chests, and butts. The duo’s combination of sulfur, salicylic acid, zinc PCA, and niacinamide target active breakouts, and the resulting hyperpigmentation.

    Effective I had a red blemish on my chest and just days away from my vacation. I used this duo twice for three days and the redness went down significantly. The spray is a unique step but also innovative for body care. Thank you Soft Services!

    Just in time Received my products just in time. I broke my ankle the day my order arrived, had to have surgery to fix it and was in the hospital a couple days. Since I was absolutely bed ridden my back broke out which it hasn’t done in a long time. Your products absolutely saved my skin when I got home and was able to shower again and apply products. Love them, thank you so much.

    Wow! Wow! This stuff is amazing! I have only used it once - immediately the moment it arrived - but the results are already impressive. I wasn't sure how much of a difference the Clearing Clay would make by just using it in the shower, but my skin was so soft and smooth after. I also used it on some inflamed spots as a spot treatment and they were a lot less red after a few hours. The Clearing Spray is great too - dries quickly and it doesn't feel sticky, unlike other sprays I've tried before. Woke up the next day to much better looking arms and shoulders. Thank you so much for these amazing products! I feel like I will finally be able to wear t-shirts and tank tops without being self conscious about my arms and back!

    I enjoyed using the clearing clay. I used it every couple of days as an in shower product, and as a spot treatment overnight. Between this and the mist, my back acne has significantly improved. It has reduced inflammation, redness, and reduced breakouts. It has also helped tone down pigmentation from scarring.

    I LOVE THIS MIST! I've used other acne spray products before but none of them were as light and effective as this one. The mist is easy to use and an even mist and it has a good clean feeling to it. This mask is great! Don't be shy and put it on pretty thick. It doesn't have that tightening feeling at all and when you rinse it your skin is so smooth. It works to immediately relieve fresh breakouts and prevent future ones! I also used it to spot treat and it does the trick! *This person tested samples for three weeks pre-launch. Soft Services products were provided as compensation for their honest review.

    The Clearing Mist was easy to use and effective! Helped reduce the redness of my acne scarring and calm the area. The number of ways to use the Clearing Clay made it really easy and flexible to incorporate into my routine, and right away I saw the calming effects of the clay, less new blemishes and smoother skin generally. *This person tested samples for three weeks pre-launch.

    I like the Clearing Mist lot! It's easy to use and while the tea tree smell can be a bit strong, reminds me of a hot spring. I find using this to be easier and kinda fun. Again, with the back being a challenging area, the spray bottle makes it easy to hit those areas. ​​I've had body acne most of my adult life, most prominently on my shoulder areas. I tend to wear a lot of tanks and I do get self conscious about it. I've started using the clay and my initial impressions is that it reduced the inflammation. After a few weeks, I had one pimple start to appear but I was able to get it to calm down, so that's good. (No scarring!) Application is a bit challenging tbh, and I wasn't sure how much to use at first, so I was a bit cautious. After increasing the amount, think that has helped. Using the apply shower method is faster but considering the shoulder area is a bit challenging to make sure I got it all. The mask approach was also interesting, I was able to do it a handful of times but the additional wait was a bit inconvenient. I usually shower right after I work out and since it says it requires a clean surface, I'd jump into the shower, soap and then jump out, dry off, apply and scroll IG for 5 minutes, then jump back in. Think there's better improvement but I'm not sure it'd be something I could always do, so do appreciate the multiple applications. *This person tested samples for three weeks pre-launch.

    I would recommend this product to: Anyone who suffers from body acne. Particularly men in general, there's definitely some good that comes from self care and finding the right products. It's like getting the right tool for the job!

    Love the Clearing Clay. I used to use the Aztec Clay everyone raves about but it is so strong and harsh. This was just enough not to burn or sting and a little goes a long way. Also love that it's a tube, not a tub. This is great for cystic acne. The Clearing Mist was awesome for maintenance but the Clearing Clay seems like a better mask or spot treatment for breakouts. *This person tested samples for three weeks pre-launch.

    I really like these products! They have definitely made a big difference in my butt acne in particular, and they’re very user friendly. The mist is so easy to spray on right out of the shower, and it doesn’t take long to dry or leave a film, so I can get dressed as usual after my shower. The clay rinses away pretty quickly and doesn’t go on as well when your skin is already wet- I think it still works, but you don’t get that thick satisfying layer that you typically get with a clay mask. *This person tested samples for three weeks pre-launch.

    I used the Acne Clay primarily as an in-shower treatment 2-3 times a week, leaving it on while I condition my hair and wash my face. The texture was surprisingly thin and spread very easily, unlike typical mud masks I'm used to. It seems to dissolve a little on wet skin so I use a generous amount of product (about 1-2 finger lengths) to cover my back. It also has an odd fragrance (like a combination of Pepsi and sulfur) but it's pretty mild, washes off and doesn't bother me. All being said, I haven't had any back acne while using this with the Acne Mist! It's not overly stripping at all and leaves my back feeling clean and fresh. *This person tested samples for three weeks pre-launch.
