Luna works throughout the night to deliver more visibly youthful, luminous, even-toned skin in the morning. Trans-retinoic acid ester (retinol) complex reduces the appearance of pores and wrinkles, while visibly improving the signs of premature aging, including fine lines, uneven texture, age spots, dryness, and dullness. Balanced with blue tansy and German chamomile essential oils—both rich in soothing, blue azulene—the look of redness and sensitivity are visibly balanced for a calm, even-toned complexion. Luna is clinically proven to improve the appearance of fine lines, radiance, and skin smoothness in as little as four weeks, while advanced retinol ester mixed with potent botanicals makes this product the ultimate transformational, soothing, sleeping night oil.

  • "Hands down, my favorite skincare product I've ever used. I've been using the Luna oil for over 6 months now and am so impressed with the change in my skin! I have very sensitive skin that is prone to redness, irritation, and breakouts. Retinoids typically cause major dryness and peeling with my skin, but not with the Luna oil! My skin is brighter, with a more even tone and texture, and my breakouts are far and few between! When I do break out, I find that the inflammation clears much clearer than it used to. I even had to change to a lighter foundation shade because of how much clearer my skin became!" in 198 reviews
  • "I got a couple samples of this from Sephora and it lasted so long! It didn't take me long to fall in love with this product! It's so useful for hydrating and lightening dark spots! It definitely exceeded my expectations and I would definitely recommend this product even though it's expensive. Worth it!" in 192 reviews

I used this stuff as directed for months. It stinks, costs too much, and I saw no difference. The only reason I gave it 3 stars is it moisturizes my skin before bed.

This is the best night oil I’ve ever used. I love every Sunday Riley product I’ve tried, but I use this after good genes and in combination with the UFO oil and it keeps my skin looking so good!

I really did like my Luna oil almost as much as my Kiel’s oil. The scent is a little off setting but once you get past that it’s a great product leaving your skin feeling moisturized before bed.

This is one of my holy grail products. I apply it every night with drunk elephants TLC and wake up to baby smooth skin. The smell is very unique but I now associate it with hydrated, plump skin!

This is nice but if I use it every night my face gets a little irritated. The packaging is cute and the blue color is entertaining. I like the product when I use it every other night, but I’m not sure it’s worth the price tag.

Got this in a small size and a little goes a long way. Not impressed with the sent but i do love this oil. It starts off blue and disappears when blended. Love this for my skin! Looks healthier.

I'm sure this would be great for someone with really dry skin, but with my oily skin it always leaves it feeling sticky. Despite it saying it can be used on oily skin, I wouldn't recommend it.

It has a strong odor but it's a great nighttime oil. Greatly reduced redness and when used in conjunction with Good Genes, I noticed fewer fine lines and my skin was a lot smoother.

I love this! A little goes a long way. I have dry skin with a tendency to get oily in the t-zone area in the summer. I use this year round! Blemishes, dry patches, unevenness gone!

Use alone if you have oily skin or under your night cream for drier skin. I have yet to not wake up refreshed. I used 2-3x's a week and my bottle is still pretty full!

Two things to watch for:
1) Don't mind the blue tint of the oil, it melts away as your skin absorbs the oil

2) Store this as you would all your precious oil- in a dark and cool place!

Yes, this oil is worth it!

If you are new to retinol look no further!!! This is one of the few products that I can out on my skin at night and wake up and see a noticeable difference. Beyond the anti aging benefits, it helps with my redness and blemishes. Truly can’t say enough good things

I keep hearing about the Luna Oil, and the Good Genes. Do you have to use both, or is one better than the other? If I were to only buy one, which one is the MUST have item???

Is this worth the hefty price tag? Will this help my skin if I am currently suffering from active breakouts? Also, is there any stinging? I ask because I use good genes and if there is any broken skin, it burns so much!

Would I put this on after I put on your moisturizer for the night or can I skip the moisturizer and just add this?
