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

- "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 do think this serum is worth the splurge. It’s great for those with oily skin, and does clear up your skin!! I notice my skin being less oily the next day if I use this as my last product before bed. Love the packaging too!!
I've only heard good things about this brand but unfortunately this is supposed to clear blemishes whereas it made me and my boyfriend break out. I have dry skin and he has oily so from both spectrums this doesn't work
HOLY GRAIL. I heard about this and needed to try it since I have acne prone skin and congested pores. I purged for about 3 days but after that my face had improved 95%. I couldn't believe it. I will continue to repurchase.
I do use it when aunt flow comes to visit and I break out... I also use the toner as well but I honestly can't get over the smell. It's so strong. The packaging and container itself is very sturdy though which is nice.
Sadly, I didn’t really see much of a difference using this oil. I am very acne prone and my skin has large pores and texture. I didn’t feel like this product did much to helP. Which is disappointing since it is quite pricey. It also dried out my skin a bit
I love this product so much. The smell is a little peculiar but it doesn’t last too awful long. It takes a while to soak in but it cleared my acne like a dream. I have hormonal acne and type 1 diabetes so I heal super slow and this helped tremendously.
I have only been using this product for 2 weeks now but can see a difference in my complexion already. I only use the product once a day, usually at night but am going to start using it in the morning an evening. The bottle reads it dries down quickly but I am still about to feel the serum on my skin a while after I apply. Overall great product.
The smell on this is a bit strong but I can definitely look past it when I see the results, my skin is smooth, clear and bright when I wake up after using this. I highly recommend to anyone with acneic or oily skin.
This is an amazing oil!!! So worth the money, it is for your skin which you only have one so better take care of it!! This helps with acne tremendously, and gives an overall healthy skin look. Cannot live without it!
This was the first serum I ever really gave a shot and I'm obsessed!!! I put it on at night before I go to bed and wake up with clearer looking skin and soft hydrated (but not oily) skin. It's truly a miracle worker.
