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

- "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

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 more...
I do like this oil. I have recently been using it as a spot treatment rather than a full facial oil. It does an okay job at clearing bigger breakouts but doesn’t seem to get them all. I will continue using as a spot treatment but have been loving the Lapis Oil as a constant clarifier in my routine.
This oil is so amazing! A lot of reviews complain about the scent of it but I think it smells wonderful. It’s non greasy and dries fairly quickly. The oil does linger on your fingertips so if you plan to use your computer or phone right after that might be a problem. My face has been smoother and brighter after using.
Purchased at: Sephora
I heard good reviews about this oil but was hesitant on actually purchasing it because it is so pricey. Let me just say, if you are contemplating this JUST GO AHEAD AND BUY IT! You will not regret this! I personally like the way this smells, almost like a tea tree oil. It is a pretty strong scent so if you are sensitive to smells, you may want to be cautious. As for the effect of this project, I would use a drop on my forehead and each cheek after washing my face. I would have some bumps under the skin or some redness from acne and in the morning they would be almost gone! I couldn’t believe it! I now know why everyone raves about it. I am almost out of my bottle and I will definitely be repurchasing this!
I absolutely love this oil. It keeps my face hydrated and seems to help control my acne well. I put it on at night after my face is washed & leave it on until the morning. I like that the oil absorbs into my skin really well and doesn’t just sit on the surface. I also like that it doesn’t clog my pores, and it helps control my natural oil production. The only I don’t enjoy is how expensive it is.
The smell is horrible. But if you can get past that, the results are completely worth it. This serum does exactly what it claims to, and I’ve noticed a drastic difference in my skin. It does have a hefty price tag, but as soon as I stop using it, I can see my skin gradually returning to its acne prone, dull self.
I am obsessed!!!! This oil is absolutely the best acne oil I have ever tried. When I’m about to approach that time of the month, I usually start having break outs and this oil (not exaggerating) minimizes the breakout completely. It is a little expensive, but it is worth it and I will repurchase. Note: I do suffer from cystic acne.
This is one of the newer additions to my skin care routine. I don’t use this oil every day normally only around the time when I get my period since that’s when my face tends to break out. This product feels great and I use it in conjunction with the Murad acne spot treatment and it works great to clear my skin!
I really, really wanted to hate this product because of its price, but after I got it as a deluxe sample at Sephora and used it for about a month (a little goes a LONG way!), I had to go and buy a full-sized bottle. I use it every night when I’m having breakouts, and a couple nights a week otherwise. It really does clear my skin quickly, and minimizes the looks of my pores. I like that it’s moisturizing; when you first put it on it does feel very greasy (which is why I don’t like wearing it under makeup even though it says you can), but when I wake up in the morning my skin feels soft and there’s no greasy feel. I will warn you that it’s got a strong tea tree type smell, but it does fade pretty quickly. Overall it’s definitely worth the price.
This has changed my life! I have been dealing with acne for almost 10 years and have spent so much money and time trying to find something to get rid of my acne, but nothing would work for me. I have sensitive, combo skin, so i’m super oily in my T zone, but I get super dry when a product irritates my skin in the slightest. Not only has this nearly cleared up all of my acne, it has severely decreased my oily-ness. I was hesitant to spend $80 on a bottle of facial oil, but I got a sample i store, and in just 2 days I could start to see my acne clear up! It is the best money I have ever spent on skincare and cannot live without it.
