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

- "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
Pricey but does the job! I have dry skin with large pores around my T zone. I use it in those areas before bed about twice a week if my skin looks congested. Next morning it always looks like my pores shrank overnight. I'll continue to purchase once I run out.
My favorite facial oil. It is a dry oil and does seep into the skin quickly. With the active acids, tea tree oil, and willow bark, this product is like getting a facial via a kiss from an angel. It makes my skin look exponentially better the next day.
Got this in a sample and was excited to try it as it is a cult favorite. I think this is one of those products you really need to multiple times in order to notice a drastic difference. However, the sample I did use left my skin clear and very smooth.
I used a sample of this and loved it so I went and bought the full size but my skin is just to dry for this. It worked great for a few weeks but after that it dried me out so bad I had to give it away. I was sad cause it looked like it had great potential!
The UFO Serum has done a great job hydrating my skin but I have not noticed any difference in the monthly hormonal acne I tend to get. The smell takes a bit to get used to but is not awful. For the price of this Serum I don't think I will be repurchasing.
SIS, GET THIS NOW!!! Definitely one of my favorite things I’ve ever tried and will try because it truly works wonders. I use it every night during my skin routine and use it on mornings that I don’t wear make up. I’ve seen a huge difference in my pores and my break outs go away faster as well
I recently bought this facial oil from Sephora to try out. The smell can be a little overpowering (my boyfriend always complains that I smell like pepper right after I use it). I think it's been very effective at keeping my breakouts at bay.
I would give this many more stars! This oil is amazing. I have oily skin and I use this every single night without feeling like a grease ball. It's very effective at reducing size and amount of blemishes overnight. I will definitely keep repurchasing this!
Felt great on my oily skin. I used a sample for a week but didn't notice much improvement. I also didn't like how harshly fragranced it is considering fragrance is very irritating on the skin. I think it's very expensive for what it is. Not a huge fan.
