- 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 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 don’t know where to start with this review. I’m just so in awe with this product. The pricing for this oil is definitely not expensive in my opinion (considering everything that it does for you) and it definitely has helped control my acne and hydrate my face. My face has never felt so clean, smooth, and fresh thanks to this product. I definitely recommend this oil to those of you that are unsure about this product. Only negative thing I have to say about this product is that the smell is awful. However, you will get used to it,just like I have, and appreciate this product.
I have pretty nice skin but always have the random patches of pimples here and there. I decided to use this as a spot treatment, so I've been using it for the past few weeks after getting a sample from sephora. However, I am almost 100% sure that it broke me out MORE. I noticed every time I put the oil on a pimple, I would see that pimple go away eventually but a few days later I would wake up with MORE pimples. Today, after using it before bed for like ... 3 weeks. I noticed that I have so many pimples on my forehead. I have not had this many pimples since high school. This is a definite NO for me.
I love this oil. I use it in conjunction with the Martian toner and my skin has never looked better. It has cleared up blackheads that nothing else has ever been able to do. The oils help balance out the salicylic acid so that it isn't drying. It absorbs nicely into the skin and you only need a couple of drops so this will last a long time. Although it is pricey it's a great investment
Review for: SUNDAY RILEY U.F.O. Ultra-Clarifying Face Oil 0.5 oz/ 15 mL more...
I cannot live without this product! It jerked my skin clear and free of congestion. Without stripping my skin or leaving dryness. The scent is a bit unpleasant and it is pricey. However, this is product is truly worth it!
Rarely have I ever come across something that produces results so quickly but this is one of those magical products. Pores? Smaller, but not tiny. The oiliness on my face? Has drastically minimized. The skin around my hair line which once broke out so easily is becoming clearer. The existing bumps from before are fading. The price is quite expensive but if the results continue to be top notch, I'll keep buying it.
I have tired a sample of this face oil and will now be purchasing the full bottle. This product was great at moisturizing my skin without upping the oily feeling. This oil and the entire Sunday Riley line is available at Sephora and I would recommend for those looking for a product that will work well with oily skin. This product exceeded my expectations and was a great find!
I LOVE this face oil! Face oils are super necessary in a skin care regimen (even if you have oily skin, you just have to find the right one). Unfortunately most of the oils break me out BADLY. But so far the Sunday Riley ones have been great! This was my first one that I tried and it was GREAT! I purchased a different one this time but I will buy this one too again because I want them both! The cumin scent is very strong but I like it and it's very nostalgic for me because of a food I grew up with lol (fellow Middle Eastern ladies, it smells like Ful Madammas! :D )
I have combination skin, definitely very very oily in the t-zone area in the warmer months. I decided to give this a try and I'm so glad I did. I use this with the Martian toner. The combination is a perfect match! I even mix a drop of this into foundations sometimes. I find this helps to clear my breakouts up very fast and it helps to keep me from breaking out. My skin did purge from this for a couple of weeks and I find If I go a few days in between uses then I will purge again. I will repurchase but it seems like the bottle is going to last a long time.
So far this is the only oil that doesn’t make me break out. The salicylic oil acts like a great spot treatment and the oil is an extra boost of hydration. Worth it.
