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

  • "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

The best acne clarifying oil I have ever tried. The only bad things about this product is that I do not recommend for sensitive skin and it is a little pricey. But, a little goes along away! I would recommend and if you have sensitive skin and want to try this, use just on your acne and not your entire face! Otherwise it might make your skin dry.

I have tried three samples of this product over the past 6 months. I really wanted it to work because all of the claims were just what my skin needs (blackheads, oily skin, aging skin concerns). Unfortunately, I did not see any benefit. I was using with the Sunday Riley Martian toner and their ceramic slip clay cleanser. This will be a pass for me.

This was my 3rd Sunday Riley purchase. I know the price tag can be jarring, but unlike most brands and their fraudulent promises, this is the only brand that has consistently wow'd me. I did a lot of research and decided to buy SR good genes without even sampling it and I was shocked at how it transformed my skin. My next purchase was the Luna oil, then I ordered this UFO oil and tidal cream. They are staples in my skincare routine now and I absolutely swear by them as I have really obnoxious rebellious skin and SR has yet to let me down. This oil does not cause breakouts, in fact, it prevents them. UFO oil is quicker drying than Luna, it is tinted green but doesn't show on the skin, and smells like oregano, which I don't mind at all. It's pretty amazing, the combination of chemical exfoliating properties in oils that work to prevent dryness while those ingredients do their job. My skin never looked better before discovering this brand. If you're worried about the price, skincare is an investment, and SR is totally worth it. Aside from that, this oil will last you forever. I've barely scraped the surface of my jar and Ive used it just about everyday for a couple months now. I even mix it into my tidal cream and foundation sometimes. I'm really looking forward to trying out more SR products

This product is quite the investment, but it is worth every penny. I can't say enough good things about what this serum does for my skin! My skin tone has evened out, I've even noticed lessening in acne induced scar, my elasticity has improved and the fine lines around my eyes seemed to have lessened. You did it again, Peter Thomas Roth! Knuckles. 😜

This face oil is amazing!! I have oily skin and was very skeptical about putting an oil on my already oily skin but I gave it a try and I'm soooo happy I did! I have noticed a decrease in the oiliness of my skin and it has cleared up my face! The smell is not great but I can deal with it as long as the product really works, and this does just that!

Ugh I still cant decide if i hate this. I have used this for about 2 weeks so far and i have noticed that my skin has been getting EXTREAMLY oily. I havent changed up my skin care beside intergrating this but i know some people break out for the first 2-3 weeks, so i will try to stick it out and see how my skin reacts. So far its been a mess.

This stuff is amazing! Skincare never really wow’ed me before but this product is a life changer! I have red sensitive acne prone skin with acne scars. After a few uses my redness was calmed down and I could tell my acne scars looked a little less noticeable. I believe using this in my skin care routine prevents as many breakouts from appearing.

My holy grail face oil! I use this every time I do an at home facial and it can transform my skin over night. It is pricey, but if you struggle with acne this is a necessity. It gently treats your acne while moisturizing your skin. The smell is a little shocking at first, but like I said... it's worth every penny, and every strange smell.

Great at keeping breakouts under control, also it regulated oil production which is great. First two weeks didn’t see major difference but then my skin cleared up, brightened some pigmentation and evened some of my texture. This is a product that your skin will benefit in the long run.

I use this product day and night and it has saved my skin so much. After using, my acne went down and my pore congestion got so much better because I wasn’t clogging my pores with thick moisturizers. Highly recommend for oily acne prone skin

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.
