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

I like this serum a lot. A little goes a long way and it absorbs very quickly into the skin. I like that it wasn’t drying or greasy but is still the consistency of a serum. It doesn’t smell great but the smell doesn’t linger. I didn’t notice a huge difference while using this product.

this does nothing for me. i have been using it for about 3 months and i have noticed no difference. All it does is make my face oily and thats it. Waste of money to me honestly. I wish it did its job. I even use two other products that go w the same line and nothing. Disappointed

This product has quickly become my holy grail facial oil! I got it in a sample trio of Sunday Riley product catered towards oily and problem skin and soon after ordered another because I like it so much. It makes my skin feel smooth and clean without being too oily and clogging pores.

After sampling this product from Sephora I had to buy it within 3 days! It was the only thing that took care of my hormonal breakouts that I had for over 2 weeks. It was an overnight cure! And the best thing is that it didn’t dry my skin or leave a greasy residue after putting it on

This stuff is ammmaaaazingggggg. My acne has gotten so much better with this oil. At first it was really hard for me to put this on because of the smell. But I got over that quickly and now the smell actually helps me go to sleep haha this is great for those with oily/troubled skin.

I am not someone with constant breakouts but just like most women I am unlucky with hormonal breakouts sometimes during that time of the month. When these little monsters decide to make there appearance I slip UFO into my routine for the week. Most acne fighting products have a tendency to dry out my skin but I do not find that the case with UFO. It dries up the problems and fights the congestion without drying out my skin. Like most Sunday products there is a slight medicinal smell due to the pureness and high quality ingredients. Some may not enjoy the scent (I personally do) but it does dissipate as it settles into the skin.

This product is a true game-changer for my skin! It is a bit pricey, but well worth it in my opinion. It controls my breakouts and clears some acne and some scarring. Overall, it keeps my skin balanced and even and my skin is a lot better when i use this product! definitely recommend

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...
This stuff is so amazing!! It has helped with my acne so much and in such a short amount of time. Available at Sephora, it is very expensive for the small bottle but you only need a drop or two for your whole face and it works so well. The smell is very intense and a little harsh at first but for the results you get, it’s amazing. Has great ingredients in it so you don’t have to worry about what you’re putting on your skin. It changed my skin overnight and has continued to work it’s magic on me since then. Recommend to many but the price point is something to be awake of.

This product is really good. I love how versatile this oil is because most salicylic acids are more drying on the skin but this is very gentle and has helped clear my skin. the smaller size lasts about a month of using it every night and day. would definitely recommend!

I wanted so badly to like this! I had read so many glowing reviews from people with skin like mine: oily, dehydrated, sensitive, blemish-prone.

My skin HATED it. I gave it a couple weeks, and went from straight oil to blending it with other products, varying the amount, sandwiching it, applying it by itself. But no matter what I did or if I used one drop or six - it never absorbed, just sat on top of my skin all night long, leaving it congested, irritated, and smothered. It clogged my pores and left me a pretty unhappy camper. Would not recommend, but as always YMMV.

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.
