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
This product broke me out. It was not good for my skin. The fragrance of this was horrible. I figured this oil would help clear up blemishes but it did the opposite

Ive only used this once so far so I have to be neutral in My review. So far so good though, no adverse effects. You can never go wrong with Sunday Riley products.
I used my Sephora points to get a sample of this acne treatment oil that had such great reviews on their website. The packaging is very nice and couldn't get over how beautiful the green color oil. However, it was so difficult to use with the scent itself. I only put this oil on the lower parts of my face and layered a little over my nose where I have blackheads. After a few days I could definitely notice the difference around my nose and the smoothness of my skin there. Amazing oil but it's highly priced and that smell.
Great oil for overnight use helps tones up my face! Wouldn't use during the day as it can leave a slightly oily residue but great for an evening skin care routine
I'm obsessed with this stuff. I have oily, acne-prone skin and I have repurchased this product twice now. My acne is minimized, my pores are minimized, and my skin tone is more even.
Best oil ever!! I have acne prone skin + oily skin + sensitive skin and this just works miracles!!!!! The most amazing oil and I can assure you that it’s worth it I don’t even care about the smell, it works and leaves my skin looking flawless!!
Review for: Sunday Riley U.F.O. Ultra-Clarifying Face Oil 1 oz, SUNDAY RILEY U.F.O. Ultra-Clarifying Face Oil 0.5 oz/ 15 mL, Other more...
This product is my #1 must have product for those suffering from blocked pores, combo skin, dry skin, and/or acne-prone skin. I love to use it alone or mixed in with other products so it will go further (moisturizer, foundation, or mixed w/coconut oil & tea tree oil for a homemade acne blend to aid in the dryness associated with drying masks). It works well under masks (like Sunday Riley's Saturn mask). This product has helped in controlling my overly oily t-zone, lightening acne scars, minimizing dryness on my cheeks and lessening fine lines on my upper forehead... A little goes a long way! Worth the (somewhat high) price, it's a great investment. Definitely recommend!!! Love the whole Space Race line!
