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
Even though it is not part of the Korean 10 step skin care routine, I add my Sunday Riley UFO Oil at the end. I have adult acne prone skin and this oil has helped me tremendously. The only con is the smell, but for what it does for me, I can handle it.
This stuff is freaking amazing!! I usually put on a thick layer on my face after cleansing. The next morning my face feels extremely smooth. I heard this breaks a lot of people out before it actually starts to clear the skin. I would recommend using it every other day or two days if that occurs. Otherwise i highly recommend!
Hands down, this is THE BEST product I own in my arsenal or skincare products. I have tried so many other serums and my sensitive, combination, prone to dryness (you get the idea) responds best to UFO. Is it pricey? Yes. Will it last a long time? Absolutely! Since I started using UFO my skin glows and has become so smooth.
GREAT ACNE PRODUCT WITH SALICYLIC ACID. Have dry or sensitive skin and have had issues with salicylic being too strong? Here's your answer. No peeling or irritation when using this miracle oil on your skin. The best and fasting working product I've ever used to treat acne.
This oil saved my face during the transition from winter season to spring. I was having some serious breakouts and scarring when they'd pass. UFO has helped to reduce the appearance of the acne scars while minimizing the appearance of large pores. Definitely a must have if you have acne prone skin or need blackhead prevention.
I've only been using oil for a few weeks and I still get break outs but that'll always happen. I bought this because a Sephora employee recommended this and it has pretty good reviews. It does a good job of hydrating my skin but I can only use this at night since it is that hydrating, even though it says it's a dry oil.
I thank Sunday Riley every day of my life for creating this product. This is the first oil that i use that doesn't clog my pores. The oily texture combined with salacyric acid clears my skin and fades scars. I wasn't expecting any less from this brand, the new Martian face mask is a great addition to your routine as well.
I am obsessed with this product! Sunday Riley can do no wrong (except being on the pricey side). I struggled with adult acne and this helps tremendously with keeping breakouts at bay. The only complaint I have is the scent but it works so well I can easily get over it! Great for my oily skin too. It absorbs so quickly.
Review for: Sunday Riley U.F.O. Ultra-Clarifying Face Oil 1 oz, SUNDAY RILEY U.F.O. Ultra-Clarifying Face Oil 0.5 oz/ 15 mL more...
I really like this stuff to wear at night. It’s a nice absorbable oil that doesn’t sit on top of my oily skin. I like to wear this after a long day of makeup. Anytime I wear makeup I tend to break out and this is supposed to make you break out, but it’s only clearing your pores to make your face super smooth and perfect!
I absolutely love this oil! I know people are weary because of the smell but I think it's relaxing almost. I have been using this for over a month, just a few drops at night. You really don't need that much. I also LOVE mixing this with my cover fx drops! Highly recommend to anyone. COVER FX CUSTOM COVER DROPS
