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

One of my favourite products! I look forward to using it every night before bed as a relaxing bedtime ritual. Skin looks and feel great in the morning, even with sensitive skin! 10/0 would recommend!

I have enjoyed using this product. My skin feels plump, smooth and refreshed the morning after use. I don't think I've seen any longterm, permanent results other than continued clear skin and supple texture. The product is quite expensive, which may be a barrier for some but if you can justify the purchase, I think it's worth a try.

LOVE THIS! The blue tint to the oil can be a little shocking at first, but it disappears as you massage it into your skin. I found that this was really effective while still being really gentle on my skin, especially for a retinol treatment. The oil keeps it hydrating. Made my skin look bright, firm and youthful. Absolutely recommend!

I get flair ups of redness from time to time and this night oil really does do the job to help reduce the redness. I know when I apply it at night my face will look better in the morning.

Sunday Riley’s Luna Oil is a gorgeous retinol-based night oil. I use it at the end of my nightly skin routine (after cleansing, toning and using a serum). Depending on how dry my skin is, I may follow it with a moisturiser, however, it usually is moisturising enough on its own!
To me, it smells like strong green tea, and leaves my skin feeling really smooth. I notice a difference when I stop using it.

If you have sensitive skin, avoid this!! I bought this at Sephora and used it for 2 months before returning it. At first I did see improvements, but then it got worse and worse. This shouldn't be advertised for sensitive skin people, this whole Sunday Riley line makes me breakout and I don't know why. But I love the smell of this oil!

This oil is great, I’m only giving it 4 stars because of the price. It’s very luxurious for the average person. It is wonderful though and does as it claims. It feels amazing on the skin, and I noticed a difference within a few days.

This is my favourite oil of all time, it calms redness, helps with texture, pores, fine lines, wrinkles, acne. 
It's honestly a do-all oil for the nights where my skin is really in need of some help.
I pretty much use it every night and my skin has been so much calmer, and less red since.

I use this product every night before bed and I really do like it. One down side is how expensive it is but hey the ingredients are good and the claims are true for me so it's worth the big price tag. My skin has been more even toned and I've seen a decrease in the appearance of my laugh lines. Overall it's a great night oil.

I have extremely oily skin so I was very hesitant to try a facial oil. The oil is definitely thicker in consistency but it absorbs very nicely into my skin. It doesn't feel greasy at all. Some people might not like the smell, but I loved it. The only downside is that it's very expensive but it definitely helped my skin.

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?
