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

  • "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 bought this product in order to hydrate my skin while clearing breakouts. I get bumps on my cheeks and chin a lot, but have normal skin so I didn't want a product that was drying. This works beautifully! My skin feels super soft and moisturizer and I've only been using it for 3 days. The spots have started to go away, so after more use I'm positive it will clear it completely! I love that the product has tea tree oil! I used tea tree as a teenager and it gave me the best skin ever, so I was thrilled to find a product with tea tree oil again. I only use this oil at night though because the smell is unpleasant to me, but it works so well I want to continue using it!

This product was a waste of money to me. I had extremely high expectations for any of the Sunday Riley products (since they cost an arm and a leg). I used this oil for about a week and my skin just couldn't take it anymore. This was my first time using oils, and with my skin type, I thought that it wouldn't be right for me.. turns out I was right. I have dehydrated, oily skin, and this product did not absorb into my skin at all. It just sat on my face. They say to fight oil with oils right? I actually had an extremely bad acne breakout due to this product.. probably one of the worst breakouts I have ever had.

My skin has cleared up since then. Judging from the other reviews on this product, it seems like it has a holy grail for some people. I do still have the product so I might test it in the future, but for now, it will remain sitting on my vanity.

For anyone worried about putting oil on acne prone skin.... this is a lifesaver! The way i love to use it is over Luna piling the evening and then top it with good genes and then CEO brightening serum. Works like magic

I have severe acne, so this didn’t really clear my acne up completely. BUT, It smells so nice and it’s so gentle on your skin. I’ll definitely be using it again.

I love this stuff so much it was working wonders for me; although it was a dinky size for their rewards. It makes me think what I full size would do; too pricey.

This is a holy grail product for me. I’ve had acne ranging from mild to severe and everywhere in between since I was 12. When I was a teenager I could use stuff like proactiv or what have you, but now at 25 I find that pretty much all acne products dry me out horribly, which only worsens the situation. I am so glad I finally gave ufo a try. It doesn’t dry me out at all and when I put it on at night, my skin the next morning is visibly brightened and all bumps have gone down either partially or completely. I haven’t had a real breakout since I started using it, only hints of beginning bumps that quickly disappeared. The scent is bizarre and strong, but definitely worth it in my opinion

I absolutely love this product! I have extremely oily, acne prone skin, and out of nowhere my acne started to become as bad as it was in my teens. I started having really painful hormonal cystic acne. I had tried everything on the market and even changed my diet. Nothing seemed to work until I tried Sunday Riley products. I use this UFO oil in the morning before putting on makeup and at night before bed. I love that this product is an oil because I haven’t had to use moisturizer in the morning. A lot of people complain about the smell, but I really don’t mind it at all. I have been through two bottles already and this is one of my holy grail skincare products now! This product truly saved my skin! Sunday Riley U.F.O. Ultra-Clarifying Face Oil

Does this leave your skin feeling more oily afterwards? I tried the Sunday Riley Luna Sleeping Night Oil and it just sat on top of my skin and made me break out more. Hoping this won't do the same.
