Life-changing Product From 2018

Friday, February 22, 2019

Hello, everyone!

I would say 2018 was by far, the worst period my skin had ever been. I was testing all these products and suddenly I didn't know which products doing what, and I guess my skin couldn't tolerate it anymore. I was breaking out constantly, and I had acne and tiny bumps all over my forehead. My skin was a constant mess, and I just kept on searching for the right products to use. That's when I realized that my skin was tired from using all these different products, and it definitely needed a break. That's also when I discovered this product, U.F.O Ultra Clarifying Facial Oil by Sunday Riley.

In 2018, I was still following that trendy 10-steps Korean Skincare Routine because I was so obsessed with having a glass skin that was all over the internet. I wouldn't say that it was a bad routine, but I guess it was too much for me. I was following that routine from the beginning of 2017, and my skin was doing perfect. However though, sometimes we just have to listen to our skin in order for it to be bomb AF. So, I started to listen to my skin and used my skincare products accordingly. 

After finding the right moisturizer to use, I thought about finding an exfoliant skincare product because my skin was so congested. I've tried Glow Tonic by Pixi (read the review here,) but it didn't do much to my skin. That's when I decided to get this product; a more powerful exfoliant.

I mean, just look at the description at the back of the bottle. "Supercharged with 1,5% Salicylic Acid, this fast-acting, quick-drying medicated oil clears acne and blackhead-counting buildup and debris from congested pores for smoother, blemish-free skin." Just by reading at this, I felt like this product have saved my skin already! It contains 1,5% Salicylic Acid, tea tree oil and black cumin seed oil to help clear out acne and blemishes. And not only that it will clear out your skin, it also will hydrate your skin as it contains milk thistle and cucumber seed oil. You can read the full ingredients here

It comes in a glass bottle with a dropper. Just a standard packaging for a facial oil/serum, nothing special except for the beautiful, green emerald color of the oil. The thing that I really wanted to point out first is that, this facial oil smells really bad. Forgive me for not being able to describe a smell, but I honestly think that it smells disgusting (oops!), and it made me wanna throw up every time I used it. The smell also linger on your skin for about 10-15 minutes after application, so, just be prepared for it. But, not too worry about the smell, because this product works like a miracle overnight!

The consistency is very runny, a little bit goes along the way, and it does absorb very quickly into the skin. I only need 2 drops to cover my whole face. And yes, this is a no-joke product because it retails for US$40 for just 15mL. It ain't for a fainted-heart. Do I think this is expensive? Yes, in fact, very expensive. But, do I think this is worth it? Well, it truly hurts me and my bank account, but unfortunately, like I've said before, this is a no-joke product. It worth every penny of it. Whenever I have acne, especially a stubborn acne that doesn't go away within 3 days with a topical acne medication, I'll slather this U.F.O oil into my skin. What about tiny bumps? gone. Pimple? gone. And as a girl who has a combination skin with a really oily nose, although this oil didn't clear out ALL my blackheads, but it definitely helped getting rid of it. I used to have a severe blackheads on my nose that is really visible, but it's way better and under-control now. This is truly a life-saver for me whenever my skin is acting up.

The Final Verdict
I believe that everyone that has an oily/combination skin, and/ acne-prone skin, need to get this product immediately on their hand! It will clear out your skin, while simultaneously hydrate it. I usually don't put on any moisturizer before using this facial oil because I feel like it is moisturizing enough, and I don't wanna look like a grease ball. I also don't overuse this product simply because it's powerful. I don't want to over exfoliate or overdo my skin because I believe that's one of the reason why I kept on breaking out last year. I use this product just when I feel like I needed to or when my skin needs a little bit pick me up from all the environmental stressors. Hence, I use this facial oil 1-2 times a week, but not more than 3 times.

Rate: 4/5. I would really love to give it 5/5, but the smell of it really bothers me, as well as the expensive price it is.

Repurchase? Yes.

Have you guys tried any product from Sunday Riley? I really wanted to try their Good Genes!

  1. This seems like an amazing product. So great it helped your skin recover. I would definitely tolarate bad smell in a product that works. I use fish oil for skin burns and while it smells bad, it is such an amazing product.
