JK it’s just emerald-colored face oil. Sunday Riley U.F.O. Ultra-Clarifying Face Oil
Sorry, I have been MIA the whole last month. But, now i am back with a new post !!
Where do i even begin? This is an oil meant to battle acne, blemishes and blackheads. It has 1.5% salicylic acid, tea tree oil and black cumin seed oil to help fight acne without over-drying. It also has licorice root and hexyresorcinol, both natural ingredients to brighten dull skin. The former (a natural antibacterial as well) also gives the oil a nice, pleasant, clean fragrance. Kudos!
Wait a second. An oil that fights acne? Isn’t that counter-intuitive, you ask? 😉 I thought so too. But looking more into oils, I’ve found that to combat oil, you have to use oil. No wonder cleansing oils have become so popular in the past few years. I was definitely skeptical at first having had breakouts with other oils in the past.
This was the complete opposite. Instead of feeling like it sat on top of my skin, it soaked in immediately, replenishing it of the moisture I just washed off with my cleanser.😁 More so, I felt like it was purifying my skin in an absolute instant. For someone with combination skin, this was a complete solution. For dry areas, U.F.O. gave it some added hydration. For acne-prone oily areas, it counteracted in the most pleasant ways. But with someone whose skin develops lots of blackheads (I have extremely small pores so oil gets trapped, it’s SUPER annoying!), I don’t see that U.F.O. actually cleared them like it said it would. I’ve tested the product for a good two months now and can definitely conclude better skin. But those alien blackheads? Yeah, still there. 😓
Yes, this is a fortune. At $80 for a small 1 oz bottle, this isn’t for the feint of heart. But if you’re saving up for a solid product that will help with blemishes while hydrating your skin, this is definitely something I would recommend. An added bonus is that this product will instantly make your bathroom more swaggy.😎😇
