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

Sunday Riley U.F.O. Ultra-Clarifying Face Oil
- "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 oil is great, it is fast absorbing and very effective. The smell takes getting used to but the effects definitely trump the scent. While this has salicylic acid I feel like my skin is still very nourished or overly greasy. It's definitely pricey but I think it's worth the cost.
I use this oil everyday!! For someone you suffers from adult ance this product along with my skin care routine has my skin looking and feeling the best it's ever looked! This oil is light weight easy smooth over skin!! I'm just in love!!!!!
I recently finished my small bottle of this that came in a set, so I repurchased the full-size today. It's $80, but it's that good! I suspect it will last me around 9 months if using the proper amount - a little goes a long way!! Such a great balance of oils to offset the drying effects of the salicylic acid. Also has tea tree oil which is a bonus for acne!! Love!
this is so amazing!! for one, it smells amazing. when i got this, i was honestly worried that it would leave a green tint to my face because i only wear concealer, not foundation. it didn’t do that at all. it made my skin feel softer than anything i’ve ever used before. it made my concealer go on flawlessly. i can’t get enough of this oil.
This stuff is amazing! It goes on smoothly and dries quickly. I have really oily skin and it has the perfect ratio of drying oil to moisturizing so I don't get dry patchy spots. The only thing I don't like is the smell. It's almost peppery.
this is my holy grail. I thought I had decent skin before I used it, boy was I wrong. this made me glow. my skin literally looked so good, my pores were smaller and my blackheads couldn't be seen anymore. I didn't think it helped my fine lines until I stopped using it and realized how bad they really were. I would repurchase this 100%
I hated this. If you are someone who is very sensitive to smells walk away now. I have always said I would do anything to get rid of my acne but omg it was not worth it. I never bought the full size only the sample. As far as working... it worked for the short time I used it but once I stopped it was hell. I don't recommend this.
This is so good for clearing up facial blemishes. I have used a few times and it seems less effective every time I use it. It has an unpleasant smell, but it leaves the skin feeling smooth and plump. I would definitely add this into your daily beauty routine and combine with drinking more water and being more active for the best results
This oil takes away all of my makeup, it's pricey but I really think it's worth it. I love the scent even tho it bothers my boyfriend it's minty I love this especially at night before my cleanser because my skin feels really clean but really hydrated and I have oily skin soooooo I stayed away from oils but they're really your friend.
Used it for awhile but didnt really like it! Its gentle on the skin but i cannot stand the scent packaging is a little scary cuz once you drop it your dead. Lol. But its made for a reason. I wish they can lower the price. Cuz most of the people who suffers from acne are teenagers and teenagers dont have that money to buy this product.
