Clinical advice

As a clinical esthetician, I recognise the importance of addressing the root causes of oily, acne-prone skin, including overactive oil glands and pore congestion. These factors often result in excess shine and visibly enlarged pores while fostering bacterial growth that leads to breakouts.

Clarify gel has been intelligently formulated to tackle these challenges. It regulates oil production, soothes acne-related inflammation, and restores the skin’s pH balance to a healthy state of equilibrium.

Rich in humectants, urea, and hyaluronic acid, Clarify ensures optimal hydration, which is essential for preventing excess oiliness. When the skin is dehydrated, it can overproduce oil in an attempt to retain moisture.

Salicylic acid plays a crucial role in tempering oil flow and gently clearing pores, while willow bark extract—a natural steroid—helps maintain hormonal balance and calms acne-related inflammation.


  • Balances oily T-Zone
  • Decongests pores
  • Targets surface blemishes
  • Maintains moisture balance in dehydrated skin
  • Treats keratosis pilaris, seborrheic dermatitis

How to use

Gently massage into your face, neck, and décolleté at sunrise and sunset.

Key ingredients

Kiwi Seed Oil: An antimicrobial and natural exfoliant that controls oil production and addresses microorganisms responsible for breakouts. Its rich ALA profile is ideal for treating acne inflammation.

Salicylic Acid: Clears acne and blackhead-causing build-up and debris from congested pores for smoother, blemish-free skin.

Willow Bark Extract: Contains salicin, a natural steroid with potent anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties,  alleviating acne and irritation associated with breakouts.

    This is a truly well thought out formula that has helped bring my oily skin into balance. That coupled with Resq has really helped me achieve clear breakout free skin it’s a blessing

      John, we really appreciate you posting this, Equilibrium really targets the skin on three levels and, when combined with Resq makes the perfect treatment for oily, inflamed breakout skin. thank you for the feedback

  5. Chaz Colston

    Fantastic gel moisturizer and amazing customer service. This formula works perfect for my combination/acne prone skin. Samantha truly cares about her customers and her products. I had been searching for really well formulated skin care for quite a while before I found out about Naked Chemist and I hit the gold mine with these products. I hope her and her team continue all the great work because she has got herself a lifelong customer.

    • Samantha Miller

      Hi thank you so much for this wonderful review and really pleased that the products and especially Equilibrium are getting the results you require. I know it’s been a long journey for you and we are really pleased we could help on your journey to skin health.

  6. Maria

    I’ve been using this for about 2 months, and I absolutely love it. It’s so light but also really moisturising, my skin feels so smooth and plump after use.

    • Samantha Miller

      Hi Maria thank you for this wonderful feedback and so glad it is helping on your journey to skin health.

  7. Jalela Muhyieddeen

    I layered this with resq and the next morning my face was clearer , that’s just from one use! Can’t imagine the results with continuous use, I tried resq alone which works nicely but with this under resq it’s even better

    • Samantha Miller

      Hi Jalela

      So glad you are enjoying the product, but more importantly that you are getting results, which has to be what using intelligently formed skincare is all about. We really appreciate the feedback. Samantha

  8. Krystal

    I love this gel moisturiser! Have been using it over the summer as my skin is more oily during the summer months. It feels amazing as it is so light weight so I am not getting that oily shine throughout the day:) Thank you for recommending Samantha!

    • Samantha Miller

      Krystal I am so glad you are receiving the results you want with this product, and that you took my advice and layered with Resq. Thank you so much for taking the time to review Equilibrium for me. Samantha
