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
This is my favorite face oil. It seeps directly into my skin for IMMEDIATE and LASTING hydration. I cannot recommend this product enough! It's purely amazing and leaves no greasy feeling afterwards.
MUST HAVE. If you have acne prone skin I would highly recommend. EVERYTIME I have a breakout I use this oil and it clears it up so well! It's not harsh it's hydrating, it just smells a little weird. I bought the mini to try out, I'll be buying the full size for sure. In love.
It's okay. It smelled weird. It looked weird, also. It felt like face oil. One of the sales associates at Sephora suggested it to me, so I took a sample. She said it was supposed to help with my hormonal acne, but it didn't. But it made the rest of my face nice and moisturized.
Great oil if used consistently and correctly. Can cause some purging but is a great oil for those with mild breakouts and oily skin. I don't use many oils bc I have oily skin but this one doesn't make me nervous to use. Reduces the size of fresh breakouts. Will repurchase again
I bought this as part of a set from Sephora and my acne is a major concern. To be honest I didn't see much of a result and won't be purchasing it again. It may be that my acne is more severe but the smell wasn't appealing and my skin didn't feel any different after application.
Although I only had a sample of this, this was the best thing I had to clear up my breakouts. It was as if I woke up overnight and my skin was clear again. The only thing I would say is don't but a lot because it will dry out your skin and definitely save up bc this is pricey.
This helps my blackheads! I use this as my moisturizer because my skin breaks out so badly. This is one thing that I always splurge on. I love the ease of the dropper and the smell is not that bad. As some know some of the products don’t smell that great but they work wonders.
I love this product because I really see the results. This brand is more expensive but I don't mind spending money on skincare because it's so hard to find products that work. The only complaint is that I don't like the smell but other friends really like it so it's probably just personal preference
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, Other more...
This product is a life changer for me. I don’t have terrible skin, but I have uneven tone and some dullness. This changed that. I use it at night before I go to bed and wake up with a glow. Absolutely one of my favorite products.
Sunday Riley products have never worked out for me and this is no different. The smell is awful and gives me a headache as I can smell it for a long time after applying. It also irritated my skin and broke me out which is literally the opposite of what it’s supposed to do.
