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 amazing for my skin. I didn't think it was really working at first but still kept on using it. I am now after a full month noticing a dramatic change. I have noticed my dark spots are greatly reduced. Like the ones left over from clusters of break outs. This being an oil doesn't make me break out and sinks right into my skin. I notice my four head lines are not as visible. My skin is bright and really healthy looking. I have been using this with the good genes and the drunk elephant glycolic night serum on and off switched. I am not changing this routine ever :)

This oil smells and looks peculiar, but let me say it works wonders! I've been using it for three months and have noticed a huge different in my skin texture. It is extremely effective, and keeps my skin moisturized as well. I would definitely buy it again, especially during the VIB sale at sephora when they are having their big sale :]

This product is pricey, BUT! For someone who cares about skincare, how their skin is living, how healthy it is, this product is a must. It's extremely hydrating, it works crows-feet, it helps with wrinkles, and it smells good! It's a thicker oil and it is strictly meant to be used at night (hence luna sleeping), after cleansing, but prior to moisturizing the face. This product is good for all skin types, and honestly will help any person's skin routine so much, that the price is almost invisible (almost)

I received a 5 day sample of this from Sephora. I can't believe how amazing my skin looks and feels! Absorbs right into my skin, smells fabulous and my skin has never looked better.
My husband commented on how fresh and glowy my skin looks and he never comments on my skin!
Can't wait to buy the full size next time I'm at Sephora!

A bit pricey but oh so worth it. You instantly notice the plumpness in your skin the morning after using the oil. The smell is a little different. It I can work through it. I have been using the oils for about three weeks now and I can see a difference in fine lines, texture and any dryness has left. It is such a great product that I now I have my husband using it.!

I had heard a lot of buzz about Sunday Riley, but more specifically the Luna Sleeping oil. I love the packaging, as well as the scent of the product. I used it every night for 6 months and although I enjoyed using the product, I don't think it was really effective for me. I didn't really notice any changes in the appearance/texture of my skin. However, it didn't make my skin look any worse so I have no problem still using it since I love how it feels on my skin.

I quite like this, I use it at night and it provides me with nice moisture and I do believe it's helping to plump my dehydration lines and smooth skin tone, in conjunction with Good Genes.

Only giving 3 stars due to high price tag; I will be trying out some more affordable skin care when this runs out. However, I will say, I bought this bottle in November of last year and am only now (end of June) hitting the halfway point- so, one bottle could absolutely last a year.

I have always raved over Sunday Riley and their incredible products. Luna Sleeping Night Oil being one of them! I IMMEDIATELY noticed a difference in my skin. It smooths out my complexion. By morning, my skin looked completely revitalized, plump, and radiant. Applying Sunday Riley's Luna Sleeping Night Oil has become my favorite part of my beauty skincare routine. The only kicker with this is the PRICE TAG, but it's well worth the money for gorgeous skin!

Not good for sensitive skin. I used this for 4 nights straight. Although I loved how my skin looked.. it made me breakout for weeks after I stopped using it. I did notice my complexion and wrinkles definitely changed and improved. I have pretty clear skin but this made me breakout too much. Such a shame. Wish I could love it!

When I first used luna, I was new to any form of retinol so my skin looked amazing the next day after using it at night. I immediately became hooked onto it, so I kept on using it for over a year. After a while, I didn't notice any improvements in my skin and it actually started looking worse. I invested in The Ordinary 2% retinoid which is a more pure form, more potent, and for a fraction of the price. I no longer recommend dropping a lot of money on Sunday Riley products when you can get the same results using more pure formulations!

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?
