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 am very pleased with this product. I was nervous to pay the hefty price but I was pleasantly surprised after using it a few times. Whenever I am breaking out, this completely gets rid of everything within a day or two. The only thing I'm not a fan of is the smell but I've grown used to it.
Even though this product worked in terms of mattifying and controlling oil, it was very hard to avoid the smell of this product. It's like a peppery, earthy aroma that lingers long after application. I would catch whiffs of it throughout the day. That combined with the price point didn't make it a home run for me, but it didn't irritate my skin or clog my pores (and I am super sensitive to breakouts). Definitely recommend grabbing a Sephora sample before purchasing!
I’m not sure if I love this or not. I used it every night for a few days but I don’t know if I’ve seen a difference or not? The smell is quite off putting but once you get used to it, there’s no issue. It is fairly hydrating, which I like.
This is on the pricier side but worth it. It has helped keep my acne under control. I would recommend it for night time. If you use it during the day it can make your skin look really oily throughout the day.
This face oil is my saving grace! It has a light scent, not very strong. It is expensive but a little goes a very long way and it lasts a good while. Whenever I have a breakout this face oil works wonderfully!
This oil is so universal and great at clearing the skin. Not sensitive either just a great clarifying oil. Love to use after moisturizer and or before makeup !!! Check this out now
After only one week of use I can already see a huge differnce in my skin, no new acne or black heads formed, and all the old ones are starting to fade. Best oil I've ever tried, definitely worth the price
I use this oil as a spot treatment and it really reduces the size of my pimples and the redness. I have noticed it will also reduce the size of my pores if I put this oil on my nose.
Really helps with clearing up my blackhead and acne. Expensive but for me it's worth it to have clear sling finally. I purchased mine at Sephora in the mall. I have sensitive skin and it doesn't seem to irratate mine in the 4 months I've been using it
