Sunday Riley UFO Acne Treatment Face Oil 

Sunday Riley skincare products are cult favorites with huge followings. Unfortunately, they’re also really expensive so these are the types of products I always secretly hope won’t work with my skin so that I’m not tempted to buy them. That was actually true for the first few products I tried, but I have sadly fallen in love with the Sunday Riley UFO Ultra-Clarifying Acne Treatment Face Oil. This oil retails at Sephora and similar retailers for $40 for half of an ounce. That’s right. Half of an ounce.

First, I will issue a warning. This product smells BAD. It’s very overpowering and kind of smells like rancid oregano. Whenever I use it, I immediately have to moisturize with my Dr. Jart+ Tiger Grass Cream so that it can cover up the scent. However, this product works so well and has really helped my acne. Thankfully, you can use just a little bit and it will cover your whole face. The applicator is an eyedropper, and you probably only need half of the dropper or less to cover the whole face. It’s very easy to work into the skin, and it’s not a very harsh product so it won’t dry out the skin. In fact, since it’s an oil, it’s pretty moisturizing all on its own.

This serum is jam-packed with amazing skincare ingredients. In this product, the main ingredient for fighting acne is salicylic acid, but it also contains gems such as tea tree oil, black cumin seed oil (both of which fight acne), and licorice (which is good for brightening complexion). To nourish the skin and combat dryness, it also includes cucumber seed oil, chamomile, and neroli. Overall, I’ve been ridiculously impressed with this product, and I’m glad that, at least compared to other Sunday Riley products, it’s not the most expensive.

  1. I got my first Sunday by Riley product recently in my January Allure beauty box. It’s a Vitamin C serum called “C.E.O. Rapid Flash Brightening Serum.” I’ve been loving it! It seems to instantly brighten my skin, and the citrusy smell is fantastic. The only problem is that it retails for $85! So I hope I don’t fall TOO in love with it…
