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 tried this on a night I was having particularly dry skin. And honestly the next morning, I've never felt my skin that soft! All my dry skin peeling went away and it was like I had new skin. The smell of it however is a little hard to get used to at first. It kind of smells like an old person, but after you get over it, it's totally fine. It does leave a little blue stain on my pillow case if I go straight to bed without letting it absorb first, but usually it absorbs quickly. I will definitely recommend this to anyone who is having a hard time with their skin for sure.

Stop wasting your time and money on other night time products and go  buy this one. You will see results almost immediately, you wake feeling refreshed, looking rested and younger than the day before. This was my first time using an oil and I will never go back, don't let the word oil intimidate you, your local Sephora will give you a small sample for free and it won't be long until you're buying the full size product. FYI the dark bottle maintains the structure of the formula because it needs to be stored in a dark place so if you get a sample from Sephora keep that in mind.

My boyfriend bought this for himself, but I been sneaking a few drops for myself every now and then. Shhh. He's been trying to work on his skincare routine since he's been breaking out pretty bad again. I suggested he added a beauty oil to his routine and we heard a lot of good things about Sunday Riley. I have normal to dry skin, he has combo skin, but the product has work wonderfully for the both of us! I noticed his face has gotten a lot less red, and I just feel more much more hydrated.

Luna is a beautiful luxurious feeling nighttime facial oil. It has a different derivative of retinol in it than most retinol products. It is less irritating than other retinols I have tried. It has azulene in it, so it has a beautiful blue color to it and is calming on the skin. I like this oil because this is the only way for me to incorporate a retinol in my skincare regime, as other retinol are to irritating. My skin feels soft and plump when I wake up After using Luna. With continued use I have had the clearest skin of my life. Luna is definitely worth the price to me and I recommend it to anyone who is interested in being an anti aging skincare regime.

I couldn't get over the texture, the oil doesn't really sink in and felt like it was getting all over my pillow. Other than that, I thought it was a nice oil, but I didn't use it long enough to really see any results.

I wish I could say this was a holy grail product like many people do. But that's not my case. I found out that it would give me red spots in the morning if I use it more than two nights in a row. I found out that I could use it every other night without problem and it leaves my skin soft but that's it. For me it wasn't a miracle product I prefer Josie Maran argan oil if you ask me

I had heard great things about this product, but was worried that it would be an issue with my sensitive skin. I started with trying a sample and could immediately see results. I have sensitive skin and eczema, but have not had any issues with the product. In fact, I've convinced my friends and family to try the luna oil as well. I use it at night after my other moisturizers and find my skin feeling plumper in the morning. The blue color rubs out once you place it on your skin, and the smell isn't amazing, but isn't bad either. It's definitely worth the price.

I'm a true believer in Sunday Riley skin care and this is a great way to add a retinal to your routine. Helps reduce the appearance of your pores, lines, and any sun damage to your skin. I like to rotate between this and Juno every other night switching. It's such a great product and also perfect with good genes as well.

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?
