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 was really excited to use this product, since many people praised this oil as the only product to be able to clear their skin. I used almost half of this oil, and saw zero improvement in my skin. On the contrary, I got more blackheads on my nose (my nose is usually clear). It did not help me with my acne or blemishes. It did feel nice on the skin though. It was very hydrating and smelled pleasant (smelled very natural and healthy). I am sad that this didn’t do anything for me, but it’s not a bad product by any means.
I’ve tried the Luna sleeping oil so there was no doubt I wasn’t going to try this one. It literally saved my skin from breakouts I had especially during that time of the month for most ladies that struggle with a few flare ups. I mainly used this on the spots I needed and not all over my face. The color dye it has does go away once you massage it right into the skin and it still has that earthy smell to it that takes some time to get used to it. By the next day or or so you can see blemishes diminish and oh my is that so satisfying.
UFO is a product I really wanted to live without because it's so expensive. But after a trial, and watching my face magically clear up after a week, I went and bought the full size. Zero regrets because this stuff works. Unlike most acne treatments, this uses natural oils to infiltrate and clean out your pores without drying or irritation. The only "downside" is that it has a strong earthy smell. To me, this isn't a downside because I love the smell, but I can see why some might not like it.
I have acne-prone skin (even as an adult grrrrrr) so I was weary about using an oil on it but honestly I will never go back to another drying acne treatment cream, I will stick with UFO! Sunday Riley products are worth all your money and last a long time as well. UFO does NOT make your face oily or heavy, it basically disappears 15 min after you put it on and goes well under moisturizers or even mixed with makeup. I've noticed a huge difference in my skin using his and Sunday Riley's Good Genes and I can't recommend them enough.
I’ve only used this for three days and I’m already SHOOK! My skin has a ton of uneven texture, whiteheads and blackheads which is mainly why I bought this stuff. I also had a hormonal breakout when I first started using this on my chin. The next day my giant pimple that was camping out on my chin nearly disappeared and now, on day three my skin is noticeably smoother and has less texture. Also, most people complain about the smell but to me it literally smells like starbursts (waxy/fruity) this stuff is pricey but well worth it!
I love this stuff, from the name,look, and overall design of the package. I think it smells great it has a woodsy type smell. My wife and I started using this a while back to help clear up blemishes. It has tea tree which helps calm irritated skin and also has 1.5% sal acid which is great for fighting acne!
This oil is magical. First off I wanted to say I was skeptical on the claims because there was a lot! After trying a sample at my nearby Sephora, I was hooked. This is a great clarifying product. It reduces the appearance of pores and acne scars with salicylic acid, while helping the appearance of lines and wrinkles. The smell is strong at first but it goes away instantly. I use this every other night and I'm obsessed!
Currently using this oil every night and have not seen a difference. I was hoping it would help keep my face clear (more for maintenance) as well as minimize breakouts during that time of the month. During my time of the month I felt like I broke out worse than before. For how pricey this item is, I would say its a pass. My skin is on the oily side, so I don't know if dry skin will have better results. I know other people who have had great success with this product so I think this is a product that either works for you or it doesn't.
Lord Jesus himself sent down this oil for ladies like myself that have face demons raining on their parade. This oil is so hydrating, and fights blemishes day and night. I can't express enough how great this has been for my under chin cystic acne. It's expensive but a little goes a long way. I will be buying it again but it'll be a while because one dropper covers my face and neck. Smells a little herb like but it doesn't bother me since I just wear it at night. Also for heavy breakout days it goes great under foundation :)
