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 had a really hard time with the smell, however I used this at night after washing my face and I'd wake up every morning with fresh skin and less acne and scaring than the night before! It's a wonderful product and it didn't keep my already oily skin oily!
I'm not a huge fan of this product for my skin but a lot of my friends enjoyed it. It is pretty expensive at Sephora, about $40-$60. It is very gentle on the skin and you don't even feel when it's on. I feel it could improve a little with helping acne.
This stuff is amazing. I have read reviews about people complaining about the smell which is not that offensive or bothersome to me. It’s more of a earthy herbs like smell instead of synthetic smells and perfumes I just love it. Dry oil soaks in nicely love it
This is my favorite night time oil. I have sensitive skin that never seems to react well to oils. They tend to cause breakouts, but not this one! When I feel like I want to be extra indulgent, I use this at night with Good Genes in the morning. Especially for those days when I need something extra.
I have had problem skin since I was a teenager. I've never had a regular skin routine. I recently established a skin routine and bought this product. I have had amazing results and very little blemishes. I use it 1-2 times daily after cleansing my face.
I use this for Black heads and to help clear up my skin. This is the last step to my skin care routine and I was also told this was a good oil to use as a base before I put on make up. I recommend it for sure. My skin looks great and my makeup stays put.
OH MY GOSH! This stuff works! I have really clogged pores and get acne sometimes but when I use this this it’s like what acne. If I use this everyday instead of spreading it out it does dry out my skin so be warned of that. But other then that I love it.
A must have for acne prone skin! The smell is quite strong, but it is worth it. This oil is gentle enough for my sensitive skin. It keeps me clear and hydrated! I have combination, sensitive skin, and it works well for my dry areas and more oily areas!
Love the stuff the only reason I’m giving it four stars is the price tag. But I’ve used up two bottles and if you have acne prone skin you need this in your life. It’s a little scary to put oil on your acne but the stuff clears it up and reduces acne scars with time.
This is a god send for acne prone skin especially if salicylic acid hasn’t worked for you in other forms or if it works but dries you out so much that you have to stop use. This is formulated to counteract the drying effects of salicylic acid so try it out!
