Carley's Clear & Smooth Kick Ass Industrial Strength


  • comes with Two 1/2 bars of our natural soap. 
  • Huge 16oz bottle of industrial strength acne treatment
  • Designed especially for teens, but works on adults with severe acne too!
  • 2 ½ times stronger than our regular Clear and Smooth
  • If you have mild acne this isn't for you, try our regular strength Clear
    and Smooth
  • Free full size natural soap included!

This is a stronger version our adult acne treatment. We originally targeted this for teens. Today we find many adults use it.

So which one should you choose?
1. No matter what your age, if you have severe acne go with this one.
2. If you are seriously addicted to stay on the skin ointments/spot treatment. In other words you keep them on your skin constantly and are finding them to be less and less effective, go with this one. At some point ointments/spots will completely stop working. Our product will continue to work. We have many regular customers since 1999.
3. Body acne: Body skin is thicker than facial skin. We've found this product tends to perform better for body acne.
4. Does this dry the skin? No. The nutrients in the product counteract the additional benzoyl peroxide drying effects.

"I have been using the facewash since I was in 8th grade and had TERRIBLE acne... I tried Proactive and ALL the store brands. I was just about to go on Acutane when I read about all the terrible side effects... and then we found you guys on ebay! You were an answer to my prayers. I am now 24 years old. It has been ten years and your products have never let me down. THANKYOU!!! "

"This is the only thing that has ever really worked for my acne, without drying out and killing layers of my skin. I'm 43 and still struggle with acne now and then, worse during that one week per month. I've tried everything from antibiotics to straight rubbing alcohol and/or peroxide. The highly medicated options kill layers of my skin, making things look better for a few days, after it all peels away, and then the acne starts up again.

Clear and smooth exfoliates the cells I don't need, opens up my pores, disolves the oils creating blockages, and allows my skin to breathe and feel softer, never tight and dry. The all natural oils and ingredients keep my skin feeling healthy and supple. Other cleansers and acne regimens made my skin feel burned and damaged, leaving me with peeling skin and dry wrinkles over the newly formed blemishes. Clear and Smooth heals, smooths, stimulates, moisturizes and cleans away dirt and bacteria.

The scent of natural essential oils is soothing and pleasant, not medicinal or harsh like other chemical based treatments. This is the best option."


"I use the soap teen kickass scrub and the day time moisturizer. My skinis restored and dewy looking after use. Even if I miss using it I am still clear! unlike other products I have used this really heals your skin. Even my 12 year old is acne free thanks to this. I was taking her to the derm and they had her on antibiotics and cream but she still had bad breakouts. Now she is clear and very happy! This has changed my life I can now wear whatever I want and not worry about my back or chest having ugly scars and acne on it. I am ACNE FREE now."

We've been selling our Clear & Smooth Skin treatment for acne and other skin problems on eBay for almost 6 years. And now with 10s of thousands of satisfied customers who reorder constantly, we sort of took everything for granted. We were fat & happy so to speak.

Recently with copy cats nipping at our heals, we decided that maybe just one product for acne wasn't enough. Maybe our treatment wasn't an end all for everyone. So we started to look at our results with teens and those with severe acne. Most were seeing results. But they were not all seeing 100% clearing. They were happy (thrilled) to get 70 or 80% clear. Nothing they had tried before had ever come close to those kind of LONG TERM results.

We wanted to see if we had what it takes to create an even more powerful treatment for those who have tried everything without success. So we decided to increase the active ingredient and how we processed that ingredient. It gets pretty technical and it''s a secret process.

My son was one of our first guinea pigs. His 17 year old skin wasn't 100% clear with Clear & Smooth. I noticed an almost amazing transformation, within a short time of using our industrial strength formula his face was smoother and the blemishes just faded away.. I had him lift up his hair to see his forehead and it was so clear. Yet his skin was not dry and he had no side effects.

Reverse Osmosis Purified Water: When looking at other skin care products I always want to know how the water they use is purified(if at all). Is it filtered? How small a filter? Ozonated? Often the devil is in the details. We use only Reverse Osmosis purified water. Reverse Osmosis purified water is the gold standard for being clean and pure. So if we are talking microscopic differences why is it important? Reverse Osmosis water, we've found, works better than any other water to maximize the potential of the precious ingredients we use. It's expensive, but we believe anything else is purely just cutting corners.

Why is this not like all the other benzoyl peroxide products? Because all the other ones just use fillers for the rest of the product. This 5% helps to control the bacteria that causes acne. But so much more is needed to make it an effective product. If you follow our directions and wash after each treatment with the Natural soap, you will not have any allergies or stained clothing. We believe Benzoyl Peroxide works as a catalyst to energize the Natural ingredients. We have tested so called ''all natural products'' and trust me, they aren''t really all natural and they also don''t work long term. Read on! The balance are in order of prominence. Remember everything works in concert to make this an extraordinary product. There is nothing like our products on the market!

[saponified oils: coconut, olive, soybean, ricebran], Our special formulation. Natural soaps help to clean the skin and are very gentle. ALL other acne cleanser we know of uses SLS (sodium laurel sulfates) or artificial soaps. Since millions of acne sufferers are allergic to these SLS ingredients, we believe they have no place in ANY acne product. We get amazing emails right after their first treatment. They tell us they can''t believe how wonderful their skin feels. Really clean for the first time in a long time.

WALNUT SHELL POWDER, -Exfoliant, we use a special cosmetic particle size. Exfoliants remove dead skin cells and embedded dirt in the pores. This encourages the skin to produce new skin cells.

SHEA BUTTER; (Butyrospermum parkii) World renown for many incredible skin improving properties, but almost unheard of here in the USA. The Shea tree grows spontaneously in the wooded savannahs in west Africa (Ghana, Mali and Burkina Faso). The tree is stout, can grow up to 20 m high and its trunk can reach 1 m in diameter, bearing leathery oval leaves. It produces its first fruit when it is about 25 years old and reaches its full production at the age of 40 to 50. The fruit is harvested by the natives and hand processed to the finished butter product. Most Shea butter is commercially processed to remove the natural color and odor, or industrially extracted with hexane (a carcinogen). This yields more butter and is less expensive to produce, but it is odorless and white and has fewer of important qualities. The Shea butter we use is yellow and unrefined. Villagers in Ghana extract the nuts (which grow wild in the forest) by the traditional, solvent-free method, by grinding and heating, and pour the butter into a gourd shell.  Our bottler sterilizes it and filters it. But we use no chemicals to refine it.

GLYCERIN; is a humectant. This means it has the ability to draw water right from the air and bring it closer to your skin. We use a Kosher Variety made strictly from vegetables. Yes some companies use an Animal based product made from Animal Fat. Unless it says so, chances are most products have animal ingredients in them.

PROPYLENE GLYCOL, -humectant, helps bring moisture to the skin. Although this product has many industrial uses, it is very common in cosmetics and is even a primary ingredient in some teeth whiteners that dentists prescribe. It is also used in cigar humidors to help hold in the moisture. (For your information: radiator coolant uses Ethylene Glycol)

STEARIC ACID: If you read labels (and since you''re reading this, you probably do), you''ll find this ingredient in many, many cosmetics and other products. It is really essential to help bind oils and waters together. Unfortunately most companies use a product made from animals. Yes most likely cows or pigs. YUCK! Plus they have to use a lot of fragrances, because that stuff stinks some kind of awful. We use a Kosher variety made strictly from vegetables.

-emollient, and carrying agent. This is not a grain alcohol or rubbing alcohol. This is not drying.

vegetable sourced thickener

-this is a natural vegetable waxy binder which helps combine oils and water. Again, we could use animal based product here or Beeswax. But we have pledged not to use any animal based product.

-we could use a chemical to do this job of helping ingredients mix properly in the manufacturing process, as most manufacturers do. But why not use something natural? Yes this is just plain old ground corn meal.

Jojoba Oil.
We use a special virgin golden variety. Jojoba is not actually an oil, but a wax ester. Jojoba mimics the skins natural oils and helps the nutritional part of our treatment integrate into the skin.

Kukui Nut Oil-
We use only specially expensive Kukui from Hawaii. Kukui heals the skin and helps clear acne.

ELDER FLOWER EXTRACT (sambucus nigra)
-a natural healing Herb to help the skin repair itself. Ooh this stuff is good. Ever buy any? About $30.00 for 4 to 8 ounces and is so watered down that it is useless. We have a special source which provides us with a concentrated version. In the 1800''s this plant was an important part of every medicine cabinet and doctor''s kit. It fell out of favor, but still has remarkable healing powers.

BUTTER; (Mangifera indica) A luxurious Butter imported from India made from the seeds of the Mango Fruit tree. We use this butter purely for it''s luxurious feel and absorbency. You''ll only find this is the quality stuff, it''s not cheap.

(Macadamia integrifolia) This tree is native to Australia. Also known as Queensland nut oil, this cold pressed oil is high in palmitoleic acid, a monounsaturated fatty acid that acts as an antioxidant, preventing deterioration of cell membranes. It is a skin lubricant and is easily absorbed by the skin, sometimes described as a "vanishing oil." Helpful in cases of sunburn and wound healing. Can you see why we use it?

SEED OIL; (Cannabis sativa) This is one of the more effective skin-care oils with a wonderful nutty smell. Hemp seed oil is derived from the seed of the plant Cannabis sativa, best known as the marijuana plant, and least known for its many productive uses. Hemp seed oil has none of the intoxicating properties of the leaves. Since hemp cannot be legally grown in the U.S., the supply of its oil is low and the price high. Hemp seeds produce a vegetable oil that is high in protein and can be used within a variety of foods and cosmetics. Alpha linolenic, linoleic and oleic acids–the essential fatty acids known as the omegas–make up 88% of the total fatty-acid content. Its moisturizing properties are absolutely magical. It adds important qualities that other oils are missing. Again, not a cheap product. This is not a filler.

PRIMROSE OIL, -Works as a natural herb to help skin heal

POWDER  (Chamomilla recutita)-a powerful herb for skin healing, this helps reduce redness. This is another very important ingredient

VERA, -skin softening and healing properties

; (Armeniaca vulgaris, Prunis armeniaca) Apricot Kernel is a light but rich oil which is especially good for sensitive skin, as well as for skin that is inflamed or dry. It can be used alone or as a massage oil and is used quite often in lip balms and creams. It is particularly helpful for dehydrated, delicate, mature or sensitive skin. It has a high vitamin A content.


As of early June 2002, we have eliminated all fragrances (which are artificially made from harsh chemicals and alcohol). We are now using pure premium essential oils for a nice light smell. Rather than use one, we use several to create a nice bouquet. Listed in order of their prominence.

, (Brazil)

We use the good stuff from France (yes the best Lavender is grown there).

adds a wonderful floral smell.

) a different citrus smell

Nice touch

My personal favorite. Unfortunately it costs between $800 and $1200 for 16 ounces. So we don''t use a lot, but it is very powerful and a little goes a long way.

WOW this stuff is expensive. We don''t use much, but a little goes a long way.

PRESERVATIVES (paraben free)

, -preservative and PH balance

Germall Plus®
We use a non-paraben bactericide & fungicide:[it’s two ingredients are: diazolidinyl urea, iodopropynyl butylcarbamate (IPDC) and contrary to internet rumors this is indeed a vegetable derived product. There are no animal ingredients in it and completely safe.] 

Sorry natural preservatives are a nice touch as a back up, but we believe that real germ killing preservatives are necessary, when you consider this product is left in your hot wet shower all the time. We use this preservative, because such a little amount goes a long way. We have heard about competitors bottles blowing up. This is due to poor preservative design and can be dangerous.

This is the best product. My husband had tried everything we could find for breakouts on his back. They would really be painful. He has had them for over 25 years and nothing ever worked - tea tree oil, scrubs, clean and clear, proactive - nada. This did the trick within a short amount of time. Now if he doesn't use it, he notices a difference. Thank you so much. Great customer service, too!

I am 23 and have been struggling with cystic acne for about 8 years. I have tried everything from proactiv, neutrogena, acnefree, home remedies, and even accutane. This list goes on & on but none of them worked. This product in combination with the bar soap and mineral foundation is the only thing that works for me. In about 3 weeks I saw a HUGE difference. Not to mention, one bottle lasted me 10 months! I am more than satisfied with all of these products and the customer service. I will not use any other product besides Carley's on my face from now on.

I rarely post reviews about any product but I really want to spread the word about this one! I've been using Carley's Clear & Smooth Kick Ass Industrial Strength treatment for more than a year, and let me tell you that this works wonders on my skin! I finally found the right product that was right for me and it was worth the money. My skin was very picky with every acne product that I bought at the store. My last option was Proactive but I decided to keep searching. I ended up searching on Youtube and found that it received many positive reviews so I decided why not? Best choice I have ever made! Within the first few days, my acne was minimizing each time i used it. I just love how my skin has become so smooth and beautiful! I seriously want people to try this out because it really freakin works!

I bought this product for my sister when I purchased the original clear and smooth... This product has been the only one that has made a difference and continues to improve her skin. A lot of other products, including prescription strength ones, would improve her skin then their efficacy would start to wear off and she would be back in square one. It's only been a few weeks (probably about 6?) and her skin is not quite where she would like it to be just yet, but between this and the natural soap her skin is looking better all the time! I will update the review... so far 4 stars just to be on the safe side, but if this really works for her, and I'm sure hoping it will, I'd gladly give 5/5 stars! Being patient is hard but I'm glad that there is already a visible change!

This is amazing stuff right here! If you give it a little time, you will see your skin clear up and look amazing! I am 27 and have been using this stuff for years, I have very finicky skin that seems to get 'immune' to every face wash I buy and this has been the only thing to work for me over an extended period of time. The 3 step process may seem tedious, but your skin is worth it!

This stuff is the BEST. I am 24 and have been fighting with acne since I was in my late teens. Never started getting it till then and cant seem to get rid of it now. I know that if I eat certain foods, especially candy, anything with lots of sugar, and then other random food, my face with become a zit fest. After Being gone for 3 months in a village where food was more expensive and and I didn't want to spend the money on things I generally liked to indulge on, my face started to clear up, but when the weather got bad and I had to protect it, and the moisture was being trapped against my skin, it broke out again...When I got home, my youngest sister told me to try this new face wash she had just gotten a week prior and LOVED it. So i did. No joke. The very next morning, I saw a huge difference. My face cleared up, it didn't hurt anymore from it breaking out. I now use it everyday and am in love with it. I told my mom that's what I want for Christmas. You wont regret it!!!!! Thanks you for making this product!!!!!

My husband stumbled into this product on Ebay. I've been looking for something like this for my son who is 16 years old. He had terrible acne since around 12 years old. He started using it 9 months ago and it had cleared out his acne. I wish I knew about this awhile back since it would have minimized the scars. As a mother, it was painful to see my son go through having so much acne. I have bought every acne solutions out there and I refused for him to be on antibiotic. After I noticed that it was actually working, I cleared out his bathroom drawer of all the other acne solutions I have ever bought. It filled out almost a whole box. I even bought a $200 blue light therapy but now I don't know what to do with it. I ever started using for myself the anti-aging wash, the natural soap and lotion. It's been great. My skin is clear. I changed brand from using the expensive Obaji brand to Carley's. I love the natural soap and the night time butter moisturizer. I love ordering the products because of all samples that comes with it. I just ordered two scar spot cream for my son so I hope it will help diminish his scars. Thank God for Carley's Clear & Smooth.

This stuff is AMAZING. I've suffered from acne since I was around 8 or 9 (have just turned 18) and nothing, literally nothing had worked. I came across this about two months ago just after I started a mild oral acne antibiotic and thought I might as well as give it a go. I ordered two bottles (saves on shipping cos I live so far away) and I'm so happy I did. My skin is so smooth and clear! Looking back at photos before it's crazy that my skin looks as amazing as it does know. Obviously there are other contributing factors to my skin clearing but I still highly recommend this! Well done guys!It also came with a whole bunch of moisturisers etc which are amazing as well (good advertising because I'll definitely be buying some haha).

Thank you. I have painful cystic acne and had given up hope that anything could help. I am 34 and am so tired of my skin being so painful and ugly. This product cleared my skin! Yes, I still get cysts about once a month. BUT THEY CLEAR WITHIN 3 DAYS!!!! These things used to take MONTHS to heal!!! Now, I get a spot and I don't panic. It won't hurt for weeks and then scar when can't leave it alone any longer, IT WILL HEAL!!! My skin is 95 % clear all the time, and my skin doesn't hurt. Can't believe I ever lived without Carley's! Customer service is fantastic, TRY IT!!! You have nothing to lose but damaged skin and poor self-esteem. Life really does change when you feel good about your skin :)

I am incredibly pleased with this product, and it's only been one day, and I am going to cry of sheer joy if this actually gets my skin cleared up in time. I've had acne since I was in the fourth grade; I'm almost 21 now, and my skin has never, ever been clear between then and now. I've tried leaving it be, Avon, Neutrogena, Clean & Clear, Equate, Aveeno, Cetaphil, and Ponds. More recently, I'd just switched to a routine with Sea Breeze every morning & night, and while they cleared me up significantly, I was only getting so healed - like, sixty or seventy percent, and I'd start breaking out all over again, despite any routine. I have big pores on my nose, minor amounts of black heads, and then I get regular zits, cystic acne along my jaw, and bumps. Just today I work I ran my hand over them and sighed, wondering if my skin would just ever be CLEAR. So I was ecstatic when I came home and saw this in my mailbox. I got in the shower and went through the routine immediately, and I swear, hours later, those minor bumps along my jaw have decreased noticeably. My skin is smooth and soft, doesn't feel greasy or dry, AND, despite this being strong, my dry skin patches (no idea what they are; the skin on my cheeks just sometimes gets incredibly dry and peels off) weren't irritated. The product didn't make them burn or flare up, like most do. I did try the sample moisturizer to calm them down, and it's worked, so no complaints from me.

This is a 4 step routine with the natural soap bar, 3 steps in the shower, 1 over the sink. This does clear up acne and cystic acne (It does take a couple of days to get rid of). You do have to do the routine everyday or else I can guarantee you'll have pimples and cystic acne the next day. However it does not get rid of the non-acne bumps I have on my face, I also don't consider myself to have terrible acne but every bump and pimple does scar. Overall I do recommend these products (though the routine is not teen friendly.

Better than meds for me as as a new mom! During college I was put differin, duac and an oral med to control my moderately severe acne. I eventually went to just differin and the oral med because my skin became sensitive to benzoyl peroxide. These meds kept me almost completely clear. However, several years later when I became pregnant, I could no longer take the oral med and differin didn't do the job. I was prescribed a face wash with 10% benzoyl peroxide and it didn't seem to do much. I tried this. This works as well as the meds I used to be on as long as I am consistent about application and am hoping it will do even better now that I am switching to Carley's moisturizer and make up as well.

I noticed a difference in how smooth my skin was within a few days of using the Carley's soap. I bought the regular acne treatment soap and used it for 2 months with definite success for my face. It cleared my back and stomach up somewhat but I decided to try the kick ass treatment and I am tatally happy! I apply it to my back and stomach before I get in the shower and let it sit for a few minutes. I have been using the kick ass cleanser for about 2 weeks now and my back is almost totally clear. I wore a tank top for the first time in a while too! Thank you guys for selling this product.

I have a quite strong acne problem since elementary school. I am from Indonesia, have tried so many products before. Medications and creams from different doctors, clinics, even treatments like Clearasil, Clinique, all 3 in one products that I have forgot the names, Burt's bees, Oxy with 10% benzoil peroxide (quite works but it's too damaging, you look pale all the time and too dry, and after that, my face became immune with it and acne came back), biore, neutrogena, all different anti acne cleansers did not help too. I always have acne regularly and my skin type is oily. Finally I graduated from college last year and thought that if only I knew Carley's Clear and Smooth before that, it would have been much better!! Seriously, you guys don't know how glad I am to get it is cleared. I am annoyed reading reviews or comments which said that people were paid to write the reviews for Carley's product. Haha, seriously?? You can fake so many reviews in Ebay? How?? If it is not working, people would realize and flood the net with negative reviews but it is not the case, right? How come you manipulate the masses? I mean, Ebay, Amazon, and this website gave same good reviews. I stumbled upon the product accidentally, it made last year's achievement because it gave my skin acne free. So actually, what is wrong with people? If you are so stingy, you can try it and if it is not working, just return the bottle. They will refund you all with shipping fee. I tried it on September last year. Believe me, I almost return it because after October, was not working. But I waited until November and you can see the results after a couple weeks from that. So, it is not instantly working but give it a try and take your time because everyone has a different skin and problem with acne. I already bought 4 bottles because they have promo last month. I hope everyone could try it and post videos in youtube, before and after. That is cruel when good things are underrated and degraded. Thanks.

I'm 25 I've had acne since I was 12... I've tried every acne product or remedy there is to clear acne.. This product has by far been the best product yet for my skin which I ran out of a couple months ago and because my skin had cleared up I've been too lazy to reorder but it really shows that it must be the product that had worked because now my skin is back to disgusting after not using carleys clear n smooth for over 2 months. I will be stocking up and sure not to make the mistake again. I also like that it comes in larger size bottles because I get acne on my chest, shoulders, back and face other products were costing a fortune as I have to use so much.
