Description

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

PRODUCT HIGHLIGHTS
  • "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 love this product. There was one point where I was using this every single day because it’s so good. I’ve purchased two bottles already. It really helps to keep my acne prone skin clear and looking good.

This oil is great for oily skin that is also acne and prone. It’s true that oil combats oil. This one is great because it’s safe for oilier skin. However, the smell isn’t great 🤐

I didn't really have any luck with this clarifying oil. I have combo, acne prone 39 year old skin and this just felt like most facial oils...didn't really hydrate but made my face look oily and pretty sure what caused me to break out a li

Amazing product. I use this on nights when my face feels like it's about to breakout. Compared to other salicylic acid products, I feel it is less drying/stripping on my skin.

This is my Hail Mary for my hormonal acne. I never had acne as a teenager but as I’ve gotten older I break out terribly before my period. This product has been amazing for it!

I use this everyday and it has changed my skin for the better! I don’t think I will ever use another oil on my face ever. It’s gentle and makes my face look and feel younger.

I can see how this doesn't work for everyone: it smells weird, it's expensive, and the active ingredient is just salicylic acid. BUT! Let me tell you some of my pros/cons and why I decided to buy the Luna sleeping oil instead. 

I got a sample of the UFO from Sephora because I had some closed comedones on my face and some whiteheads that were peeking out. I had heard a lot of good things about Sunday Riley and tbh everyone else was obsessed with this so I tried it. 

The pros:
- It felt like it zapped away my whiteheads without drying the rest of my skin out
- It did feel like my skin was slightly resurfaced so the closed comedones started to go away
- It didn't feel very drying

The cons:
- For this price I want it to do more than just zap zits, and I didn't feel like there was a greater change in the quality of my skin
- It smells really herbal, like I can smell it even as I'm falling asleep. 
- I can only put it on at night because I felt like my sunscreen couldn't stick to my skin like it usually does with this on. 

Overall, if acne is a concern of yours and you can afford the price, the UFO was really great and a non-harsh way of drying out zits and clearing some congestion.
