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

- "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 started using the ufo oil in hopes of clearing my acne but it just didn’t work for me. I don’t even have sensitive skin but my face became very red and irritating while I used this. I would not recommend this to anyone especially since it is so expensive.
I bought this to help with hormonal acne. I do feel it has helped my acne without drying my skin. Which can be an issue for me. The only downside is that I don’t really like the smell of it but I would buy again because it was effective!
This is an absolute HOLY GRAIL product for my skin! I have been dealing with hormonal breakouts for the past year and this is the only product that has helped me. My skin looks flawless now! This is now a permanent staple in my skincare routine!
This product is so amazing for your skin! I do see that it is very pricey, but for skin care it’s always worth spending a little more. This made my skin so clear and smooth, and smelt amazing! I’ll be running back to Sephora as soon as I run out
This is like 911 for acne! A dry oil that can be used all over or in spots ( how I use) yo target those problem areas and deliver results, okay! I got this as a part of a set and I absolutely love! I will definitely repurchase when I’m out but a little goes a long way !
It’s strange to think of an oil as clarifying but this one definitely is. I like to use this 1-2 times a week, as overuse can lead to breakouts because this is still an oil. With correct usage it hydrates the skin while clarifying and doesn’t feel greasy. It sinks in fast and when you wake up your skin looks more radiant and plump.

I truly thought nothing would cure my stubborn adult acne. I tried a million products, switched birth controls, and I kept getting acne that would last for days. Enter Sunday Riley. I am going make up free during the day, my black heads are gone, my acne is gone, my skin is glowing, hydrated and gorgeous. I use the Sunday Riley Night Oil at night & the UFO in the morning before my make up. I am so thankful for this product!
Purchased at: ULTA
My mom was using this and I borrowed it when I was watching the house. I noticed results in the first night after I slept and I want to purchase this for my own personal at home use as soon as I can!
