Sunday Riley: UFO Ultra-Clarifying Face Oil


If you struggle with acne and have sensitive skin, you must try this oil! I honestly wish I knew of it much sooner.

When stress or hormonal acne starts popping up on my face or chest, I use this oil both in the AM and PM before I put on my moisturizer. It absorbs pretty quickly and doesn’t leave a residue. My acne is literally gone within a 24 hour period after application. It’s main ingredient is salicylic acid, which dissolves keratin plugs (a pore clogging debris on the skin), and regulates skin cells.

The only negative is that it smells pretty strongly of licorice. If you can get past that, it may be exactly the acne fighting product that you’ve been looking for.

What is Salicylic Acid?

It’s a beta hydroxy acid (BHA) and a go-to ingredient for helping with acne due to its exfoliating and anti-inflammatory properties. It helps remove dead skin cells and pore clogging debris from the skin. It’s also known for improving the thickness of your skin and collagen production.

How To Use

Can be used in the AM or PM. After you cleanse, massage the oil into your face as needed. I use this product after a serum and before my moisturizer.
