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
SAVIOR for acne prone skin. Apply a little before going to bed to cleansed skin and see blemishes diminishing over night. Would clear my skin in a few days, especially great if you have an event to attend and want clear skin. Helped with oiliness of my skin as well. Keeps it moisturized and hydrated.
I cannot live without this product. The scent is pretty strong but after a while you get used to it and i kinda like the scent now. It also has made my skin significantly less oily over time. This product is pretty expensive but i would say it’s worth it!

I got a sample of this oil and was really excited to try it out because my skin was breaking out really bad and I heard that it was amazing. At first I thought I started seeing results but then my face started breaking out again, so I stopped using it.

I use this face oil at night in my T-zone area as this is where I have all my acne problems. Then i use the Sunday Riley Luna night oil. This has definitely helped with the sebum/whatever this stuff is on my face that aren’t blackheads issues I have :)
Got this as a tester. Not sure if it’s good yet but I think it’s making my skin purge becauseI have a couple new break outs. The smell is herbal and the oil itself is enough hydration for my skin. I will post an update review when i’m through with it.
My go-to miracle product for my acne prone skin. I have used so so so many products for acne over the years, as I am in my late 20s and still experiencing breakouts, and this oil has been by far the most effective. It is pricey, but worth every penny.
Let me start by saying topical acne products fail to work for me 99% of the time. However this stuff is amazing! It really cleared my skin, and when I stopped using for a few days my skin started to break out again. Lasts a long time. Really worth it!
Purchased at: Sephora
Purchased in hopes that it would help with acne. The smell didn’t bother me, in the past I have applied straight tea tree oil to my skin and this didn’t smell that bad. I didn’t notice a difference in my acne however, my skin was very soft after it absorbed. This was very expensive and i will probably try to find a cheaper alternative once my bottle is gone.
I bought this from Sephora after watching KathleenLights video and I was worried about spending so much on an oil but it was actually bigger than I thought and you literally only need a small drop. This will last me for a while!! Definitely worth the price!!!
