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.

Solutions for:
- Acne and blemishes
- Blackheads
- Pores

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:
- Parabens
- Sulfates
- Phthalates

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 invested in the larger size in this, and i couldn’t be happier. i use this at night after cleansing and toning but before moisturizing. it does have an interesting smell, but you get used to it. i have really noticed less congestion in my pores and overall nicer looking skin!

I purchased this product in hopes of clearing my skin of blemishes only to find out it didn’t do much. The oil didn’t help feminism their appearance but it didn’t break my skin out either. I find the smell fine to deal with and I used it early enough before bed for it to go away by the time I hit the pillows. Was hoping more from this product since my friends have hyped it up quite a bit before I decided to purchase. Extra stars for not being irritating and having a nice package but that’s about all the oil has going for it.

I like this product but didn't see huge results, this feels a little more like a dry oil to me too, I know it's for oily skin but still felt a little too dry on my face, I'm not sure it's worth the price tag, and the smell is something you eventually get used to, but on the plus side I didn't have any new breakouts whilst using, but it didn't really get rid of my existing ones either.

This huge bottle is something I’ve been using for over six months and still looks brand new. You certainly get your moneys worth with this one. It works as well as it claims and the only thing I would say I don’t like about is hat it smells really strong like a herb for pizza. Otherwise I have noticed my skin cleared up and is maintained since starting using this nightly

I have been using this for about 2 months. I use it before I go to bed with the good genes. I have always suffered from blackheads and this combination has shrunken my pores and made so many of them disappear. I've tried so many products and had regular microdermabrasion but nothing worked until this combo! Definitely recommend. I am oily and I love using oils on my face. Sometimes you've got to fight fire with fire.

Holy grail for people with acne prone skin. Even works for cystic acne. My boyfriend has had adult acne since I met him so I got this for him and his skin has never looked better. It’s amazing and cleared his skin fully within two weeks but had a noticeable difference overnight. It shrinks any pimples that are currently visible and shrinks pores as well.

This is an amazing serum! I get hormonal acne on my chin and I tried everything to help with my blemishes and nothing worked but within a week of using this my chin cleared up considerably! It was shocking how quickly my skin cleared up. Yes it does have a strange scent to it but to me the product has such a positive effect that the smell is worth it.

As always, a super product which does exactly as they say it will. The product is very soft and smooth on the skin. I would recommend it to other people. Suits my sensitive skin. The light fluid sinks in and last all day long, without being oily or sticky or irritating my skin. After buying and trying many other products, I keep coming back to it.

At first I didn't believe the hype then I tried it and love it but it was until I got a huge blemish just on the tip of my nose that made look like a witch that I became a true fan since it got rid of it in 2 days. It is simply so good! It that dries out pimples without irritating or drying the skin you don't want to bother. I love it!

Does this leave your skin feeling more oily afterwards? I tried the SUNDAY RILEY Luna Sleeping Night Oil and it just sat on top of my skin and made me break out more. Hoping this won't do the same.
