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

This has been one of my holy grail night time skin care routine products for a while now. I saw a difference in my skin after the first couple of uses! The product is a bit pricey, but I think it’s worth every penny! It works well with my dry skin

I got this as a sample at Sephora but for the time I had that sample I noticed a huge difference in my skin. My skin wasn't dry all day and the oil itself was light and fast absorbing. The full size bottle is on my wishlist because this oil really made a difference for me.

I am so in love with Luna Oil!
The smell can be a bit much for me personally - it’s like black licorice I guess? But it does absorb quickly and after about 5 min the smell is gone. It’s on the pricey side but you only need a few drops a night so it lasts a while. Well worth the price though!

I really like how well this oil hydrated my skin but for the month I was able to use it, I didn't feel it lived up to all the claims on my skin. I didn't see much change in the pores in my t-zone. The packaging is extra but I love it! Although, the bottle itself seems like it's going to have more product in it but since it's made of glass, it has to be made securely.

This is my all time favorite serum. Before going to bed, I put a little on my face and when I wake up in the morning my skin is transformed. If I am struggling with a breakout, I do add more product and when I wake up it’s gone. Dryness? Gone. Redness? Gone. Fine lines? Disappeared!! This serum has changed my skin entirely!! The only thing is the smell is kinda odd, BUT the effectiveness totally combats it.

Love this oil. Received a deluxe sample of this oil from Sephora a while back and used every last drop. Noticed a big difference in my skin. Woke up with well hydrated skin and noticed a big difference in overall texture. Hate that it's so darn expensive.

Sunday Riley is definitely a brand you can swear by. The fragrance in their products is definitely earthy, but if that doesn't bother you then you're going to love what they have to offer. The luna oil was perfect for my dry yet slightly sensitive skin, I used it in the evening and I always woke up feeling like I had an extra glow from within look.

Luna sleep oil all day everyday! This is the only retinol oil that I will use for the rest of my life!!!! I remember the first week of using it, my husband noticed how good my face look. Yes in less than a week I was able to see changes, that's how good my Luna oil is. I have less breakouts, my pores are looking a lot smaller and The texture of my skin improved dramatically. It's pricey but worth every penny!

Love! The oil itself is blue but once applied you won’t look like something from Avatar :). They say it is a retinol product but I can tell you that there is no irritation whatsoever. This is most likely due to the oil. It does not make your face break out but it does take a while for the oil to absorb. I only use at night. My skin looks amazing!

I went into Sephora looking for a product to help with my fine line and wrinkles and this was suggested. I felt like it was very pricey and I did not notice much of a difference in my skin. I think if I continued to use it over a longer amount of time I would begin to see a more noticeable difference. As of right now I am not planning on purchasing it again.

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?
