Sunday Riley U.F.O. Ultra-Clarifying Face Oil
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.
- Acne and blemishes
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:
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

Sunday Riley U.F.O. Ultra-Clarifying Face Oil
- "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
Omg I love this stuff!!!! I don't particularly like the smell. Almost smells like herbs or something and it's a bit strong BUT it works Ahh- mazing so it makes up for it! I have never had any acne problems growing up. After two kids, my hormones went crazy and my back started to break out horribly. Literally nothing worked until I found this holy grail!!
I purchased this brand new from Sephora and I honestly am on the fence about it. I have acne prone skin so I’m trying to figure out if I like it or not but I hate the smell and it’s very oily so I can’t really apply it and go to sleep without being afraid I’ll wipe it off. I haven’t seen it do anything for my skin yet.
I’ve been using this for a few months now and have almost used the entire bottle and I find zero difference in my skin. I still have the same amount of acne I did when I started using this. I only continue to use it because at least I can feel like it’s not adding acne to my skin. But for this price, I’d expect some results.
I recommend this oil to everyone I know! The smell is a touch off-putting at first (it's extremely fragrant!) but it works incredibly- especially on hormonal acne, which is the hardest to get rid of. I apply a couple drops every night and in the morning all of my redness has reduced and my skin is noticeably clearer.
As we all know the price point is high and let's be honest I don't mind dishing out some money for a product that works wonders. This product however is it one of them. First the smell not my favorite thing ever then there is the issue that every time I use I I end up with more problem spots than what I started out with
One of my foundations was causing breakouts so I bought this after reading great reviews on it. While I don't think the product is life changing or preventative for acne, I find myself using it every night so it must be doing something! However, I probably would not purchase it again as the difference is not noticeable.
Not a huge fan. Could be the scent that bothered me. Used the product once. Did not like the texture of my skin almost wanted to wash my face. I don't like feeling like I have anything on my face. This sits on the skin and nourishes for sure but the price point plus scent along with the greasy feeling left behind.....
I have repurchased this product several times now and I love it. This oil is so lightweight and absorbs quickly into the skin. I noticed my skin clearing up after including this in my routine. As much as I love this I do not love the price. Not enough to keep me from repurchasing though since I am on my third bottle.
Wow this works great and lasts longer than I expected. Totally worth the money. Tttttttttttttttttttt Tttttttttttttttttttt Tttttttttttttttttttt Tttttttttttttttttttt Tttttttttttttttttttt Tttttttttttttttttttt Tttttttttttttttttttt
This oil has done wonders to my skin. Before that time of the month arrives I use this to prevent any pimples from popping. I haven’t have a pimple in 4 months. I just use half a dropper before going to bed, as simple as that.
