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.

Solutions for:
- Acne and blemishes
- Blackheads
- Pores

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:
- Parabens
- Sulfates
- Phthalates

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’m a big fan of Sunday Riley’s oils. This one has quite a strong raisin m-like smell but the benefits outweigh that. It’s great for treating breakouts without over drying them. It absorbs quickly and leaves my skin feeling soft and comfortable.

I have some pore visibility issues and breakouts that are not normal for me, so I started incorporating this into my routine. I alternate nights using this and the Luna night oil. I think that they work well together in reducing my breakouts and keeping my skin in good condition!

I love this oil so much and I have heard a lot of complaints about the smell but I love it. I love the earthy smell very much. I use this oil at night when my skin is breaking out and it really helps balance my skin out. It is a pricy item but I really recommend it more than ever!

Since I had fell in love with the Luna oil, I bought the set that came with the toner and mask. This set is also amazing! The toner is so good and gentle which I love. Only negative thing about it is the smell but it does go away after.

This product is great, at first I was questioning it because it did cause a bit of skin purging which I’ve never experienced before but that’s because it really work! You must use this consistently but the results are amazing I use this before bed and wake up with amazing skin

This oil is light and absorbs really quickly. It seems to suck the redness out of blemishes and helps to keep my pores from clogging without drying my skin out. If you are looking for a facial oil for skin that tends to get texture and blackheads, this is a really great choice!

I had a sample of this from Sephora and it lasted me FOREVER because I used it just as a spot treatment when I had a breakout and it literally disappeared overnight every time I reached for this stuff. I never thought adding more oil to acne would clear it up but this stuff changed the game. I've actually never bought it because the sample lasted me so long that I never needed to but trust me it is well worth the price point if you're someone prone to breakouts.

Best oil for oily acne prone skin! Helped so much with the little bumps and blackheads! It’s so gentle and has a small amount of salicylic acid to help prevent breakouts and help with current breakouts while moisturizing your skin!

This product has been amazing to my skin for about a year now. It was slow at first to clear up my acne but after consistent use my skin has been pimple free for a good percentage of the time and the amount of oil my skin produces has been reduced. Make sure to use no more than 3 drops of this this and just press it on to the skin.

Does this leave your skin feeling more oily afterwards? I tried the SUNDAY RILEY Luna Sleeping Night Oil and it just sat on top of my skin and made me break out more. Hoping this won't do the same.
