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 product has genuinely cleared my acne (or at least did for a while!) when I began using this, it took a week to get one pimple. ONE in a week!! Usually i get several a day! My acne has started up more recently but this has been a great way to keep it in check, it’s totally worth the price!
Amazing product. I'm not fond of the licorice scent but it help me get control over my breakouts. I started using this product just in time for winter and it helped with the excessive dryness that unusually get around that time of year. With this product a little bit goes a long way.
This product is amazing! I have suffered from acne for over 10 years and have tried all sorts of products such as Paula's choice and Proactiv. I purchased this for the first time a month ago at Sephora.com. It doesn't dry out my skin, is effective at preventing new acne, and is full of skin loving nutrients. As a new Sunday Riley user, I wish I would have found her products sooner!
Helped my skin to clear up without drying my skin thanks to the oil that the salicylic acid is suspended in. I don't really enjoy the scent because it is very herby and pungent but I am willing to look past that because of the effectiveness of this product. Would definitely recommend!
I have been using this product for the past couple months now and have absolutely fallen in love! I purchased a smaller sized bottle from Sephora and a little really goes a long way. The formula seems to have really helped clear up most of my blemishes after a short time, impressive!
I like this product so far! It seems to keep my skin both very clear and moisturizer. However, I haven't been using the product long enough for me to attribute everything to this one product, but so far it seems to be fulfilling the claims. And it doesn't irritate my sensitive skin!
I recently started using this oil, In order to see any results I feel like I'd have to test it out for a few months to see the long term benifits. On the other hand I think short term it helps pull out pimples faster. The smell is earthy but not to bad, and it's not all that oily
I wanted to like this so bad. I've heard great things about it and the description fits my oily, acne prone screen. Unfortunately, I couldn't get passed the smell. It smells like chemicals, herbs, licorice and I just couldn't do it. I returned it. And it is also super expensive!
A MUST HAVE!!!! Oh my god, i have gone through 3 of these bottles and it is my holy grail. It gets rid of my clogged comedones, it brightens, and it just does the trick. It smells amazing, and it doesn't leave a greasy feeling, it dries pretty quick. I recommend this product 1000% if you have clogged pores, or problematic skin!
I just started using this and I love it!!! It's a dry oil so it seeps into your skin and does not leave any residue. I have oily skin and it does not irritate or clog my pores. I have seen such a huge difference with my hormonal breakouts!!!! Game changer in my skin routine
