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 don't think I can live without this stuff. I use it in combination with the good genes and have had amazing results. Since using the combination my skin is much healthier. My skin tone is much more even. I don't get near as oily. And the amount of breakouts has greatly reduced. I'm not embarrassed to be seen without makeup anymore.

Not sure if I noticed any major differences like everyone else. The UFO oil is great but I didn’t see and changed with the Luna like I did the UFO. I will continue to use since it costs so much but not sure it’s making a big difference.

I really cant say enough about this product, it smells amazing (though my bf doesn't love it!) and it feels like silk on the skin.  I had very high expectations for this since I had read so many rave reviews and I have to say, I 100% get the hype.  It has helped calm down any breakouts I have had while still keeping my skin moisturized.

I am a first time user of this product. When used with the lactic acid treatment you will see a difference in the clarity and tone of your skin. It did not irritate my skin at all. Be sure to use a gentle cleanser on skin prior to using.

Live this stuff!! I have no clue if the retinol component is effective but the other ingredients have done amazing things to my skin. I am hydrated and clear in the morning. Also feel like this has brightened my skin as well. Smells pretty herbaceous but I find it calming now that I'm used to it. Buy some. You won't be disappointed.

Right away, I really enjoyed the pleasant and soothing scent, color, and feel of this oil.  I've been using it 2-3 nights a week for the last couple of months and I've found that it's really been helping my skin.  It absorbs easily and quickly into the skin and my skin still feels soft, supple, and hydrated the next morning.

Horrible. This oil gave me blackheads and enlarged pores. It made my skin look worse than before I started using it. I thought for being so expensive it would have been spectacular but it was such a letdown. I would never use this again.

Holy grail of night time facial oils. I rotate this with a aha nighttime gel every other night. It has a very herbaceous smell that I can see some being turned off by but after a week I was used to it. I've noticed a big improvement in the texture of my skin since starting using this. My skin has less breakouts and appears smoother.

This was the first nighttime oil I utilized in my routine. I have sensitive skin and have had no issues adding this product. I am not in love with the smell, but I wake up looking refreshed. This brand has wonderful anti-aging products.

Oh my gosh where to start with this oil. First off, it has improved my acne marks. It helps with my acne and since I am in my mid 30's the retinol in the the oil will help keep my skin young and glowing. It does not have the best smell in the world but I can over come it for the benefits it gives. It is very well worth the price tag.

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?
