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 love this facial oil. It's so luxurious and you wake up with the softest skin. I also really love the scent of it. It has a minor retinoid which helps add to the softness. Great at fighting minor redness.

I have used it for a week and if I have noticed changes in my skin, the only thing I do not like is the smell very strong for my taste, but the turquoise blue color

When it comes to retinols, they have so many benefits especially with anti aging but also could have many side effects with person skin types. However I was determined to try this product after my research.
Since using this product and incorporating it 2-3 nights a week in my nightly skincare routine I have not experienced any skin irritations to my sensitive skin and my skin feels smoother and looks more revitalized. It’s still early for me to say it’s yet the full result of this product but I’m definitely continuing to use it in my routine.
Note that when using retinols sunscreen is crucial.

Minimized my pores and improved the texture of my skin. I only use this twice a week though just to avoid purging. I don't like the smell but I can bear with it.

I received the Sunday Riley Luna Sleeping Night Oil as a deluxe sample from Sephora. I used it a few times a week and saw the my skin looked smoother and softer every morning that I used the product. Only a couple drops are needed for your entire face and neck as it is an oil and spreads easily. I had been using the oil for a month when it crashed to my floor and shattered. I was mortified and just HAD to purchase the regular size. This time, I was using the product every day with the same results. However, after a week I noticed that I was breaking out and would have several tiny closed comedones scattered all over my face. I knew it was this oil because nothing else had changed in my skincare routine. Unfortunately, I've been taking a break from it to allow my skin to settle but because I do enjoy the results so much, I will give it another change but I think I will go back to using the product only a few times a week as I did before.

I would re-purchse Luna for sure because I see result. I think my skin just really loves any Retinol product. I mean my skin looks so plumped and youthful in the morning, and feels ultra soft and smooth so I'm really happy with it. Another thing I like about Luna is that it sinks in immediately, my skin doesn't feel greasy at all, and please don't mind the blue tint because it does go away as soon as you rub it in. I don't find it irritating, it is just an good all around anti-aging serum that any woman who are aged 30 and above should give it a go. I know that a lot of people dislike the scent, and I admit it, it is pretty off-putting at first but it kinda grows on me so I don't mind it at all.

If you want to see a difference in your skin this paired with good genes is what you want in your LIFE! The aromatic scent that LUNA has is so calming and gentle. I was at first confused on how ADDING oils to your face could help anything lol
But I learned the difference between good & bad oils and knew this was something I wanted to add to my nighttime skin care. Any redness that I had— is gone. My wrinkles are less sunken and have definitely improved since using this.
I would recommend that if you have any doubts on these products, purchase them and try them out (even the small boxed combo PACs) the worst thing that could happen financially is you have to return it for your cash back.... but I have a feeling way more people would rebuy rather that return

I was already a huge fan of face oils, so I was already expecting to love this. This oil makes my skin feel like silk every single time I use it. I’m not kidding. My skin had never felt as smooth as it does after using Luna. I put one drop on each cheek and half a drop on my forehead and massage it into my face. I let it absorb for a couple minutes before I put any other products on my face. Whenever I wake up in the morning, my skin always still feels like it did the night before – smooth, soft, hydrated and just healthy feeling. I haven’t noticed much difference in the redness on my skin, but I am really pleased with the other results I have seen with this oil.

This has been my nighttime retinol for the past year, and even though it kills me every time I have to repurchase because of the hefty price tag, I suck it up and buy it anyways because it’s that good. You will need a sunscreen for your daily routine if you use this oil, that is a must!! This is also not a treatment where you will see results over night. It is a gradual treatment. Over the last year, I have noticed decrease in my acne scarring. They are less noticeable and smoother. This oil has also helped to reduce the look of fine lines in my forehead. I apply four drops to my face every night.

Loved this at first! This was my first adventure into face oils. Noticed though after a while, my skin return back to how it it was prior to using the product. Not worth the price IMO.

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?
