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

Been using this for over 2yrs now and it's amazing, it feels light and has vit c in there which is great to brighten the skin. Very effective for rests. I brought it from space Nk in the UK. Smell is strong but wears off after a while. Price it high but it lasts at least 6months for me

I wish I had love this product like many others did but unfortunately its was I miss for me. I used it for more than a month and I had painful pimple. Ive read that it can happen with retinol but pimple should stop in 2 weeks. Its wasn't my case. I didn't see any change in my skin also, no fading of dark spot. I think its overrated

Yes it is pricey, but this stuff works. I got this from sephora as part of a duo with the Sunday Riley Good Genes. I use both almost every night and have seen a huge improvement in the appearance of my skin. I think it's cool that the oil is blue, but be careful because it does stain.

Note: I have been using this daily for 2 months.

Did not do much for my skin, and was hard to sleep with due to the heavy black liquorice-like scent. Lots of people swear by this, and so I guess it is YMMV. The packaging is lovely though, and I love the dropper system as it makes it easier to mix this with other skin care products.

This oil works pretty well when you first use it. The oil really brightens your skin and makes it feel really soft. This also does not make you break out and is pretty soothing. However I don't think it has any long term benefits and doesn't actually affect the texture of your skin.

I wish I could afford to keep buying this pricey oil! Feels amazing when paired with Herbivore's night cream (superfruit moon). A very light oil that absorbs into the skin nicely, but I do find you have to use a bit more than a heavy oil to ensure all parts of your face are covered.

Was recommended but I was not impressed with the product. I have oily skin so using the oil my skin felt sticky and a bit greasy. Uncomfortable for me. However I heard so many great things and saw many great reviews that wanted to try. Product is costly so read about it before commit

Staple in my routine! I even keep/hoard samples of this product for when I go on vacation or work trips. This has helped my skins hydration, fine lines, dullness. I can't think of another product on the market that tailors to all the benefits told this oil with such great ingredients

This product really helps with skin texture and a glow. Paired with Good Genes and your made a beautiful mixture. It helps with fine lines, pores, dullness, literally everything. I would definitely buy it again. But if you do get it and use it, you must use an SPF in the daytime

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?
