Description

What it is:
A quick-absorbing, medicated dry oil to clear congested pores, treat and prevent acne, and smooth the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles for clearer, smoother skin.



Solutions for:
- Acne and blemishes
- Blackheads
- Pores


If you want to know more…
With 1.5 percent salicylic acid, this fast-acting, quick-drying, medicated oil clears acne and blackhead-causing buildup and debris from congested pores for smoother, blemish-free skin. Tea tree oil and black cumin seed oil support clear skin, while hexylresorcinol and licorice naturally brighten the appearance of old acne discolorations for a more even-toned complexion.


Counterbalancing the potentially drying effects of salicylic acid, milk thistle and cucumber seed oil nourish the skin and smooth the appearance of lines and wrinkles, without leaving a greasy residue. Chamomile and neroli soothe stressed, blemish-prone skin.



What it is formulated WITHOUT:
- Parabens
- Sulfates
- Phthalates



What else you need to know:
"When I formulated U.F.O., I wanted to create a dry oil that practically disappears into the skin, leaving oily skin smooth (but never greasy) and yet effectively treated for blemishes and blackheads. Salicylic acid is notoriously over-drying, leaving your skin stripped and looking irritated. By infusing salicylic acid into clarifying oils (like tea tree oil and black cumin seed oil), the drying effects of salicylic acid are nipped in the bud, while all of the treatment aspects (like clearing congested pores and managing blackheads and blemishes) are in full-force. U.F.O. is part of the new Green Line, along with Martian Mattiyfing Melting Water-Gel Toner, created specifically for oily skin clients."—Sunday Riley

PRODUCT HIGHLIGHTS
  • "Absolutely OBSESSED with this! Keeps all my stubborn acne at bay! I apply twic a day sometimes, once in the am, and once at night. Has a strong natural scent but I actually like it. It is very gentle especially for my sensitive skin. It is an oil, but it works like a charm for oily skin. Wouldn't buy any other serum! " in 93 reviews
  • "Just bought this oil, and immediately after putting it on I can feel my breakouts soothed and the light tingling from the salicylic acid so I know it's working. For my normally oily, retinol-dried out skin, it's hydrating enough for daytime use." in 78 reviews

So I have been using this for a few months and I haven't really noticed any crazy differences.  I do notice that I wake up with more hydrated skin. One thing that I really dislike is the smell of the oil and I noticed that my pillow does pick up some of it, but isn't stained by the oil. This is a bit pricey so I'm not sure if I'll repurchase it, but I am glad that I've tried it!

I am currently obsessed with Sunday Riley skincare! I wish that they would come out with a backbar already so I could use them in a spa! This oil is so lovely for congested skin! I am so excited that their is finally an oil intended for oily skin!

So far so good with this!! Originally owned oregano oil to begin with (one of main ingredients) but had no idea how to use it! I have adult acne and this oil has helped so so much! You smell a little like a really good pizza but I would recommend it to help people with textured skin! Reduces pores and blemishes!

I have suffered from acne for decades.  Even as an adult, I was still getting breakouts.  I decided to try the UFO oil after having already tried other Sunday Riley products.  My face is clear of acne because of it.  It does contain salicylic acid and that's a major ingredient in most anti acne products, but the fact that it's in an oil I think helps soothe the skin even further.

Holy grail for my blemish prone skin. The price tag is quite hefty and will set you back a bit but it's an investment I stand by for clear skin (I try to only purchase this when Sephora has their vib sale). The smell is quite medicinal but you don't notice it after applying. I use this as a nightly treatment under my moisturizer and I wake up with calmer and hydrated skin.

The only thing more intriguing than an oil that's meant to clear acne is the fact that it works. Some people complain about the smell, but I actually love it. I think it smells fresh. It's pricey, like all Sunday Riley products are, but the bottle goes a long way. I enjoy using it as a spot treatment because it doesn't dry me out as much as more astringent products do.

If you have blackheads (who doesn't), acne, or the occasional blemish or breakout, you need this. And I mean this. It smells of.. oregano maybe, but the smell goes away almost immediately. It also absorbs into your skin pretty quickly. Please note - you only need to use the smallest amount of this oil. Like, a few drops should suffice for your entire face, which will make your bottle last longer and that's a good thing because this stuff is expensive, but beyond worth it. I use the Sunday Riley Clay Cleanser and UFO Oil after, and my blackheads are almost nonexistent, which blows my mind. No exaggeration. This stuff is worth every penny.

This dry oil serum is amazing for oily, acne-prone skin. It seems to make my moisturizer go further than it normally would. It helps keep my skin from breaking out and has changed the texture of my skin, making it velvety smooth. One small bottle lasted me for over 6 months and I immediately noticed a negative change in my skin when I ran out. Definitely will repurchase!

For someone with oily skin I was terrified of this!! We are taught to stay far away from oils so I was extremely hesisranr especially at that price point but I went ahead and purchased a small bottle because I saw so many people enjoying it and I do have to say it put the cherry on top of my skin care routine, everything just seems nice and smooth and refreshed looking.

Does this leave your skin feeling more oily afterwards? I tried the SUNDAY RILEY Luna Sleeping Night Oil and it just sat on top of my skin and made me break out more. Hoping this won't do the same.
