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
This product is crazy over-priced. I wasn't thrilled. I did not see a difference in the overall clarity of my skin at all. It did not make me breakout more, but I also did not see a difference in any reduction in my skin either. It smells very earthy, almost like oregano, but I grew to love the smell. Overall, it was okay. But I would not repurchase.
Hated the smell!!! Horrible smell! Didn't do much for my skin either. I have to be honest I only used it about 4 times because I just couldn't get passed the smell. The ordinary 2%salicylic a it worked better for me and has no smell. I returned this product
I love the scent of this oil, it is amazing! I was hesitant of the price tag but it's lasted a really long time so far and I don't use it daily which helps it last. I use it when I find my skin is a bit dull or I'm starting to break out. Wears well under makeup but I like wearing it to bed.
I’ve been using this oil for about 6 months and have gone through two bottles. I use this every night after cleansing. It’s left my skin so soft and cleared up most of my clogged pores. The smell is great if love natural scents. It is very pricey though.
I love this oil soooooo much!!! It is seriously a life saver! I've struggled with acne for most of my life and I had pretty much just given up before I found this product. It does exactly what it says it does and I will most definitely be repurchasing!'
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!
LOVE this face oil. LOVE this brand, it did however make me break out after a week or so. I did return this, I felt for the money it wasn't worth the additional breakouts. My skin is just a little too sensitive for this product. I would recommend it to anyone who doesn't have super sensitive skin!
The BEST oil I have ever used! It def helps with skin congestion and leaves my skin feeling soft and hydrated. I have normal skin so oily products do tend to make my skin more shiny, and this is exactly what it states - a dry oil. In a few minutes my skin is back to how it was without feeling 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.
