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
This with the Martian mattifying toner is a dream!! I know this is expensive but it is totally worth it! It has changed my skin already and I've only been using it for a few weeks, consistency is key! I love the smell of it and my face feels so smooth when I'm done using this product. This product will last awhile as well because you only need a few drops for your whole face. Try it you will not be disappointed!
I have very acne prone skin, my worst break outs are around my mouth and my jaw line, they're really hard to cover up. I've been used no oils are moisturizers because I have very dry skin, so a oil that also clears break out is really helpful. I don't think my acne is going to dye down but this green oil help it heal faster. My marks are fading a bit more and the dry skin around the acne is going away much faster.
I noticed some change in my skin when I first started using this but nothing too dramatic to make me feel like it justifies the price. I personally don't feel like this worked that great for me. The scent was strong at first but you get past it after a few uses. I liked the bottling and the dropper. Made it easier to handle the product. Over all I feel like it's hit or miss. Unfortunately it was a miss for me.
Sunday Riley is one of my favorite skincare brands. I currently use the U.F.O oil in my pm skincare routine and it is amazing. My skin has never looked better. The herbal scent takes a little while to get used to but it dissipates quickly. Although the initial cost is quite high, the amount of product you receive will last for a while. I purchased mine last summer and the bottle is still 3/4 full (with once daily use).
I love using this serum if either my skin is breaking out or is about to. This works wonders especially paired with the Sunday Riley Martian Toner. I love using it at night and the next morning the redness is gone or the breakouts have been minimized. The only downside is the scent, smells strongly like patchouli. Best way to use this as with any oil serum is to use one or two drops and press it into the skin.
I really don’t know how I feel about this and really want to try it again. I got the tiny sample from Sephora so I only used it for about a month. It did seem like it worked to help clear my breakouts but at the same time it was really unpleasant to put oil on my oily face, it felt so greasy and like it was just gonna make me even more oily. Also it’s pretty hard to apply, not sure the best method for application?
To me this face oil is just ok. The smell is pretty bad so if you are sensitive I would stay away. For what you are getting I also think the price is quite high but nevertheless thought this would be my new holy grail face oil . It didn't change my skin drastically or even noticeably treat or prevent breakouts ... but it worked and didn't break my skin out further. I recommend using at night due to the smell.
I love Sunday Riley products so far, they're definitely an investment, but they're worth every penny!! Most salicylic acid products are super drying, however the oil is super moisturizing and dry!! It's super weird, because it's not oily but not drying, I love using it underneath makeup to smooth out any texture too!!!
Cleared up my Acne!! I have the most sensitive skin ever, and this product cleared up every breakout. I bought it at sephora! It is expensive, but a bottle of the oil lasts a year for you. My skin has never been clearer. Only 2-3 drops are needed, sometimes I will add it to my foundation.
