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 am still experimenting with this oil, since I got about a month ago. I like it when applying, but I don’t enjoy the blue color... My face looks nice the next morning, but my most oily parts of my face (my chin) feel oily if applied on a very hot night. It works better for me if I mix it with my anti-aging cream. Let’s see how it continues working during the cold weather!

I have been using this oil for about a year now and while it’s a great face oil, I haven’t found anything extraordinary about it in comparison to less expensive face oils. While it balanced my skin there were not any dramatic changes considering the price point. I will say it does last a long time as you only need 1-2 drops but I do believe there are better options available!

I have been using this product for about a week and a half now and in that time I feel like this has helped smooth my skin and keep away any bad acne. I don’t like how the product smells, but that isn’t a deal breaker for me. You only need 2-3 drops at a time so this product will last quite a while. I think because of how long it lasts that the higher price is worth it to me.

This is a pretty dry oil. It sinks into the skin quickly and I think it is nourishing. I can't say that I have seen a huge improvement in my skin but would say that it is comparable to the Keihls midnight recovery oil. It's blue which is super weird but think it's ok.

Great product for overnight hydration. I wasn't a huge fan of the blue color and how that transferred a little to my face. It does not stain, but I do not use it regularly because of that reason.

Mixed feelings about this. Firstly it doesn’t not contain retinol but an ester form of retinoid. The blue dye can be annoying can transfer to pillow cases. Does the product work? Yes, can see cell turnover, some dry flaky skin.

This is my can't live without nighttime oil. I already was asked about this one, but it's really amazing. Makes my skin so soft, and when you use with the Good Genes, it's a winning combination.

Holy grail. I feel 5 years younger using this after 3 days. Corrects redness, acne, scars, anti aging. A little goes a long way. Worth the price. Lasts 2 months at least. Don’t need to use everyday just 3 times a week is great.

Using the Sunday Riley Luna Sleeping oil with the Sunday Riley Good Genes for an overnight treatment had me waking up to soft and refreshed skin. I will not repurchase due to cost and feel using a lactic acid and more affordable oil will give the same results. null

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?
