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 has been a staple in my skincare routine for about 8 months and there is no way I could live without it at this point. Don’t be scared by the price tag. The .5 sized bottle lasts me around 6 months. I recommend this to every person I know that may have trouble with acne on occasion.
My nose has never looked better! The blackheads are nowhere to be found and my pores got snatched just like my weave. The results make this worth the price in all honesty! Absolutely in love with this oil!
Honestly I didn’t use this product long enough to see a difference in my face. The smell is horrific and I can’t describe it. It’s worked wonders on my friends faces, but I couldn’t get past the smell. Request a sample at Sephora before buying
This is based on a first impression since I only tried this briefly while staying with a friend, but I really enjoyed this oil. I used it at night since I have very oily skin, but it did not make me feel over-moisturized or extra oily and felt very nice on the skin!
I prefer the Luna oil over this one but this is a close second for me. The smell isn’t as good but the oil itself works just as great. I love the same eye dropper applicator. It’s very comfortable on the skin. I would say it’s worth the price.
This product is the best face oil I’ve ever used. I have acne prone skin and this helped stop breakouts. It’s also very nourishing and leaves your skin feeling like you went to the spa. I will definitely buy this product again when I run out!
I use this oil every single night. Ever since I have put this oil into my skincare routine.. I am in love!! My acne is disappearing over night! I have never had skin that feels so smooth and hydrated before in my life! I would 100% recommend!
This is one of the higher brands that I've tried and I was skeptical that it would work but glad I did. First time I've used this brand. It really helped my skin to clear up, wasn't over drying. I would definitely recommend and repurchase it.
I received a sample size of this product at the Sunday Riley popup shop. The consistency of the product is good but it has a really strong smell. The smell was not good and I ended up washing the product off of my face because it was so bad.
This oil is amazing for oily acne prone skin. I mix it with any moisturizer and i know it’s helping my acne and pores whether it’s at night or during the day. I have repurchased this oil time and time again. I love it. A little goes along way
