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 was my first retinoid, and the only thing I do not like about it is that it is a) an oil (not great for my oily/combo skin, I find) and b) the blue dye in it. I am not sure it actually works to reduce my redness, but what I do know for absolutely sure is if I dab a little of this oil on a zit (which I rarely get) that baby is gone down or almost completely gone in the morning. It is magical. It is much too expensive however to buy solely for this reason.

This retinoid is one of my holy grail products. It’s got all these amazing calming oils in it so that my skin doesn’t feel at all sensitized or irritated. Retinol is also one of only a few ingredients scientifically proven to reduce signs of aging on the skin. Sunday Riley’s version is less sensitizing than normal retinol. Waking up after putting this on at night gives me a ton of compliments! Don’t forget to put SPF on the next day though. It’s on the expensive side but a little bit goes a long way and this lasts forever!

This product has been a godsend for me. I purchased it at Sephora when my skin was acting up BADLY, and within three applications (at night) my skin had significantly improved. Works very well by itself, but combining it with Good Genes yields even greater results.

Initially I wanted to try U.F.O, but it's out of stock everywhere in Canada and has been for a while, so I took a chance on Luna and I have no regrets. Highly recommend, and worth the price tag!

very hydrating and gentle product. Can be used with or without moisturiser, which I like. it has very delicate fragrance. I havent used it consistently yet to see any real results, but my face seems to be very smooth and well hydrated after night time application

Ahhhh Sunday Riley. I'm so happy you made thia face oil. This does wonderful things to my skin.. I will apply it at night just before the Good Genes and when I wake up in the morning all my problems are pretty much gone. My skin is so healthy and clear looking. It's actually incredible. I get the set with the Luna oil and Good Genes together. I feel like they work best and give best results when used together! Healthy, plump, clear glowing skin. Yes!

I won't use this because it's a sticky mess. I have oily skin and I used it on its own underneath my moisturizer as a part of my bedtime routine and in the morning my skin felt oily and heavy. I don't know if it's good for my oily skin and maybe clogged my pores, just he heavy feeling and weird smell of this product turned me off. I got as a deluxe sample from Sephora. Now I would love to try good genes from this brand because every one raves about it .

The best oil
Base face serum I have tried so far. It lasted me a long time as 2 drops every night would go a long way. Although it's an oily serum it doesn't feel oily or greasy on the skin. It has a very luxurious feel on the skin. I have a combination skin, and because of polycystic ovaries syndrome my skin has become problematic and acne prone. This serum worked absolutely works,and truly improves the acne &redness. I can not recommend it enough

I used to always just get samples of this from Sephora because I wasn’t sure I wanted to splurge and purchase the product... however after a few weeks it was obvious my skin was loving this!! The blue tansy oil truly helped with any inflammation and it actually really helped heal some fresh scars I had on my eyebrows!! Great oil!!

This product saved me when I break out the most. I use demalogica night treatment first after washing my face and let air dry, then I put on several drops of Lina face oil to kind of 'seal' it. I have extremely dry skin, so I always feel hydrated after using face oil. I always wake up having less breakout and irratation the next morning. However the face oil has a blueish color, so be aware not to run it on your bed sheet and pillow! You'll have a bluefish tint once you applied, but it goes away the next morning!

GOOD BYE TEXTURE AND REDNESS! This is amazing for anyone with active acne or is dealing with any problematic areas. you need such a little amount to cover the whole face, and it might not smell the most pleasant but it is so worth the results! you WILL see a difference overnight. its that simple. just make sure you're not using other retinol/retinoids when using this product so you don't irritate your skin.. not like you'll need to...

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?
