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

- "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 found this oil to be interesting. I’ve never seen salicylic acid in an oil before. When I used it everyday, my skin broke out more (maybe it was “purging”). I use it less regularly now and probably won’t repurchase again.
The oil had a really strong smell that I feel like most people wouldn’t like, I did like that they made an oil specifically designed for oily acne prone skin. I didn’t feel it cleared up my skin so I would not repurchase it
So good! It drys down super quickly and feels great on the skin. Totally cleared up my skin which has been a huge struggle and this has really helped. Really expensive but this size bottle will probably last you a lifetime
I love this oil so much. I received a trial size from sephora and I really want to purchase the full size. I used it a few nights a week before bed and it felt hydrating but also helped to fight my acne. I would recommend.
This is a life saver! I have always suffered from acne and finally found something that works. It is definitely fading my existing scars and i haven’t seen many bumps since I started using this! I will keep on buying this!
Interesting dry oil that smells incredible to assist with blackheads and acne. I felt like my skin was clarified but didn’t get a huge result in my pores or texture although I do get that my texture isn’t necessarily acne caused
I got this product for when my hormonal acne acts up. I get huge under the skin cystic acne spots around my chin and lower cheeks. This was supposed to help clear those out but I didn’t notice a difference after using it.
Review for: SUNDAY RILEY U.F.O. Ultra-Clarifying Face Oil 0.5 oz/ 15 mL more...
This didn’t do much in the way of skin clearing for me. I️ prefer the Luna oil. UFO has a very pungent smell, and I️ actually retuned the product after a while bc for what I️ paid it wasn’t working. I️ do like the brand.
Definitely a less harsh sal. Acid option that is a nice light oil! It definitely helps clear up congestion, although not overnight. Purchased from Sephora as a part of the UFO kit with the mask and toner, would recommend!
