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

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 has worked wonders on my skin.  I've seen a MAJOR reduction in the number of whiteheads and blackheads around my cheeks and jaw.  While I still have a few chats now and then on my chin, the constant deep and painful ones around my jaw are totally gone.  The scent was strong at first but not unpleasant, and now I enjoy it.  Would highly recommend!

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 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.

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.

How did I ever live without this? I got this on a whim because Samantha Ravndhal, who has similar skin issues to mine, recommended it in a video. It has cleared my active cystic acne that I’ve had for months now. It’s also healed older more stubborn spots and evened out my skin. Despite this being an oil, it’s not greasy at all and it absorbs so quickly.

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

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.

Great for clarifying! This works amazing for someone who is dry and has acne. I am oily and I have acne prone skin, so I was skeptical about an oil for my skin. But it did not disappoint! It definitely helps with small blackhead and clogged pores! However I will say I prefer the herbivore lapis oil, but that one is almost double the price.

THIS OIL IS AMAZING!!! It’s expensive, so I get samples of it at Sephora. I wash my face at night, and then put a little of this on. A little goes a very long way, it helps clear my face of all blemishes, its so nice. A holy grail product for sure.

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.
