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
Cannot say enough good things about this oil. It's really effective and keeps my skin pretty clear. When I do have a breakout, it clears much faster than it did prior to using it. I can't live without this oil and I've repurchased is several times. I love the .5 size because it's easier to travel with!
These face oils are the best I've ever tried but if you've got some texture I highly recommend this little guy. I've been using it for a little over a week and my skin has evened out not only in the amount of texture I see but dark spots and discoloration around my eyes has faded it's a must have!
I think this face oil has saved my skin! The smell is a little earthy but totally worth it! I have very sensitive skin and was so worried that this was going to dry out my skin or cause me to break out but it hasn't. I highly recommend this product.
love this product!!! i was skeptical at first but it’s amazing!! so worth the expensive price!!! it purged your skin (for me the first few weeks) & i got breakouts in places i never did, just because it was detoxifying my skin but now it’s so clear!!! I LOVE & i can tell it will last me a while:)
I've never used an acne-fighting product that is oil-based before, and this one worked excellently. The packaging is lovely, the ingredients are top-notch (natural and effective), and the product just works. It soothes my breakout-prone skin while hydrating as well, and prevents future breakouts. A win-win.
I'm tempted to go overboard when I use this because it is so effective for me. It's gentle to use every day and night if you want, and it will not compromise the skins moisture. I will use three drops for the full face or one drop to spot treat at times. This is one of my most important steps in my regimen, that I really can see a difference with!
Growing up? I've always had clear skin. But when i turned 30, my skin has changed. I've been breaking out a lot lately and this product has definitely helped me. Most acne treatments will dry you out but since this is an oil based, it moisturizes your skin as well. I will definitely repurchase.
I personally didn’t notice much of a difference in my skin. I would be willing to try this product again and be very diligent in following the directions on how to incorporate this into my skin care routine. It is very important to use as directed to see results but that can be difficult to do.
My absolute favorite facial oil! I have oily/acne prone skin, and I use this morning and night on top of my moisturizer. Does not make skin greasy and makeup still applies beautifully over the top. My skin has been so happy since adding this product into my routine. Just bought my second bottle!
I LOVED this product so much! I received a sample of this product from Sephora and applied it every night for about 5 days. I noticed a difference in my skin after just one night. It applies so smoothely and leaves the skin looking amazing the morning after. Def going to purchase the big bottle!
