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
I absolutely love this face oil. It keeps my breakouts at a minimum without drying out my already-dry skin. It is an expensive oil, but I think it is worth it, since a little goes a long way. I will repurchase.
Okay yes it stinks terribly, but it works! I have super oily skin but this oil actually somehow REMOVES the oil on my face! It’s so good but soooo expensive, but it really does a great job of helping keep your skin balanced
The only acne treatment that does not dry my dry skin out more. I have overall clear skin with maybe one zit forming every month. Since starting using this, the zits never develop into red pimples or anything that needs to be popped. When I see one forming I apply this directly to the zit and of course a light layer on the rest of my face. I have been using this daily for 6 months and actually afraid to see if my skin would break out more if I stopped using it. So it’s good as prevention and treatment for me. :-)
Don’t look at the price tag! Just buy it! I have had hormonal acne most of my life and this, this clears it all! How? Don’t ask me! Just buy it and see for yourself! 100/10 would recommend to any and everyone
Great for anyone with acne oily skin. It goes on like an oil but then it dries down. It help me with a lot of my acne and blackheads I prefer to use it at night. You can use it after toner and before moisture
This stuff smells TERRIBLE. I’ve only used it twice and I had to wash it off after a mateer of minutes both times because it smells so strongly it made me sick. I have no idea if it works but I would not recommend this product. Save your money.

I love love love this product, it completely dries out my cystic acne and prevents new ones on my skin, It works like magic, when I use at night by morning the acne is cleared and my face is clearer than ever!
This was recommended to me at Sephora as a spot treatment and it is amazing! I also love the color. I have had nothing but stellar experiences with all of her products, and this one was super cool to look at!
this product is definitely in the pricey side so i was hesitant to buy it. however i truly feel that it has helped improve my skin texture. i also know that a lot of people complain about the smell of the oil but i don’t find that it bothers me

One of the best products on the market for acne. Also can help with keratosis pilaris when used in small doses. Doesn’t overdry skin because the salicylic acid is housed in oil. Worth using despite the scent.
