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
I used this for a few weeks and it really made me break out. I kept using it because I read that it detoxes your face at first. I was getting large cystic acne so I stopped using it. I bought this from Sephora. It's hard to say if I would recommend because I'm sure it's way different on everybody's skin.
I absolutely LOVE this, my pores tend to get clogged and this stuff is amazing at keeping my skin clear. It's not heavy so I can even use it during the day or mixed in with foundation. This is the best oily skin persons oil in my opinion, worth the Hefty price tag
I CANNOT SAY ENOUGH ABOUT THIS PRODUCT!!!! Life changer. I started getting cystic acne after I had my daughter in 2016. Someone suggested salicylic acid treatment and I came across this miracle and had to try it. I use it everyday. Non drying, effective, and worth the price! My cystic acne never came back.
This stuff has literally changed the texture of my skin! It is way beyond exceeded my expectations! I have acne prone skin especially around my chin area, and I have been having problems for three years now. I am so excited to say, that I have finally found my holy grail! It is absolutely worth the price.
If you are someone who suffers from clogged pores or occasional breakouts this is for you! It's great to use as a de-tox treatment as well. It's gentle yet extremely effective. The price is a little high but it's totally worth it. I use it at night before bed. I also use it as a spot treatment when I have a stubborn under the skin blemish.
I absolutely love this oil. It’s amazing for oily-acne prone skin. I use it all over my face at night after all my skin care stuff is done. It got rid of all my redness on my forehead. It’s great at controlling the oil in my T-zone. It doesn’t smell very good but it does what it’s supposed to so I can look past that.
Review for: Sunday Riley U.F.O. Ultra-Clarifying Face Oil 1 oz, SUNDAY RILEY U.F.O. Ultra-Clarifying Face Oil 0.5 oz/ 15 mL more...
I wanted this to work! 💔 I had some really bad acne on my cheeks and chin, and I have combination skin as well. The oil did nothing for me, I saw no improvements whatsoever even with continued use. There is a smell though, so if you’re sensitive to things like that you may not like this. I didn’t mind it.
I love this product. I picked up a sample at Sephora and it's been doing wonders clearing up my skin. The scent is a little strange, predominately a mix of licorice, tea tree, and rosemary, but not one of those stronger than the other. It does kind of sit on my skin, but doesn't feel greasy or uncomfortable.
I didn’t really like the smell of this and I felt like it didn’t do much for me so I stopped using it. I’m glad that it didn’t make me oily though. I think if I gave it another shot I would maybe like it because I do like Sunday Riley’s Saturn mask and maybe I just need to use it for a lot longer to see the results.
I bought this product to use when my skin was problematic. It is definitely a good option, but not as amazing as the Luna oil. I think I was expecting the same type of extraordinary results. I do like and use the U.F.O. oil here and there. But for me and my personal skin needs, the Luna oil is my go to.
