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
I won this product in a giveaway, but this opinion is my own! I love facial oils and I think this one is pretty good. The one thing I don’t really care for is the scent, but after awhile it fades away. I have dry skin so acne isn’t really an issue for me, but I do like to use it on spots that may pop up and it works pretty well for me when I use this product that way
I have acne prone skin that is combination and tends to be on the more dry side when I am treating a breakout. This oil from Sunday Riley is a lifesaver. It hydrates my skin, calms redness, fights inflammation and gets rid of even the deepest underground pimples. This is a staple in my skincare routine.
For the price, I really wanted this product to do what it said it would. The scent was very strong and kind of turned me off. I did notice that I was not as oily in my T-Zone while using this product!
Warning: a purge period accompanies the first week of use. My skin didn’t get “worse” because I already had zits but, I had a constant stream of healing and new breakouts for a week before it began to clear. It isn’t a miracle product for me because I haven’t repurchased. However, it was nice to have as backup in my arsenal just in case I had a super bad skin week.
Love it! Non irritating and hydrating. Now it is an oil so it will make you oily so I use it at night and I do feel it helps with my breakouts without drying out my skin. Highly recommend it
I’m still in the process of testing this out by I fear it may be causing my sensitive skin to breakout- not just purge. It’s worked really well for my sister in combination with the Martian toner- her pores look practically non existent. Wish I was so lucky! Maybe I can find something cheaper that will work for me though bc the price point on this is quite hefty.
This product changed my life. I know that’s a major statement to make but it did. I was so broken out and would get the worst black heads and my skin was always oily so it made it worse. when I started using this oil, within a week I saw a difference. I’ve been using this for 2 years now and it is honestly never leaving my vanity. it’s part of my nightly routine.
This is the Sunday Riley product that everyone should have in their vanity. It is pricey, but if you’re like me and you don’t get breakouts often then you can get away with getting the smaller size. I use it as a spot treatment on all the different kinds of acne I get (hi, Cystic) and it calms them down overnight. The best part is that it is an oil so it does not dry out my already dry skin.
