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

Such a Luxe treat prior to sleep, incorporating it into my sleep ritual has made me me more attentive to taking care of my skin in the evening. I have been using it for about three weeks and so far, so good. I do feel like the design of the bottle makes me deposit more than I need. I use any extra on my neck, chest and hands

I use this almost every night depending on what I did for skin care that day. It isn’t heavy and will have your skin looking and feeling great over night ! It is a bit pricey but you get so much BANG for your buck 💯 you only need like 5 drops for your entire face and neck. Which’ is less then a full droplet. If you are Looking to add a night oil I highly recommend

I received a sample of this in my allure monthly beauty box and I was very excited to try. It really does make you wake up with more even toned, smooth and brighter looking skin! I do wake up with oiler skin but I think I may apply a little too much. You only need a few dots, a little goes a long way!!

Holy grail, worth the price, cannot live without this.
I have extremely sensitive skin and had not found a nighttime routine more than cleansing & moisturizing that wouldn’t break me out. Luna not only did not break me out but over time has evened my skin tone, reduces my smile lines, brightened my skin and shrunk my pores. Outside of an occasional mask this was the only thing I introduced to my regime for the past year. I couldn’t recommend this enough but do get a sample first and patch test!

I enjoy using oils before going to bed and I thought this one was interesting because of the bright blue color of it. If was lightweight and gente, pricey but good. It gave my skin a nice glow but the smell was offputting. Other than that, I liked it but not sure if I would repurchase because it is pricey.

I am underwhelmed by this product. I am afraid it is going to leave residue on my pillows and to be honest i don’t see much of a difference when i forget to use it vs when i use it religiously. I will finish the product i have because of the price i paid but i do not anticipate i will purchase this again.

I was hopeful when trying this face oil, but unfortunately I saw no results after using it consistently each night for some time. It claims to reduce the appearance of pores and wrinkles and fight premature aging and surface redness. I don’t have problems with redness, so I just judged it on the other claims. I didn’t notice a difference in pores or wrinkles so for me, the oil was effectively just a moisturizer for the night time. I did find that my skin starts to feel too greasy after using face oils every day, so maybe oils just aren’t for me. Either way, this product didn’t work for me so I can’t rate it very highly.

I really love this oil and how smooth it makes my skin feel. Regardless of what night products I use each night, this oil is always in the rotation. I actually really enjoy the smell which is strong and def not a scent for everyone. I’m not too fond of the dye and will probably venture out and try other retinoids as this was my first! Very gentle on my skin.

tried this out after it was suggested by a Sephora employee. Not a fan of the smell or burning sensation of this product, not to mention the price is outrageous for the amount of product. While I may not have used this product for a long enough time to see results, I was not impressed after a few uses.

This is a good nightly serum to keep your skin in its best condition. It doesn’t feel too heavy of an oil at all and it didn’t irritate my sensitive skin. The price is worth it in my opinion. Sunday Riley is a legit brand that has real & effective ingredients. Not a gimmick like some brands at Sephora.

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?
