Birchbox Breakdown

Although it's green in color and bears the name U.F.O., this dry oil contains effective acne-fighting ingredients that are anything but alien. 1.5% salicylic acid, tea tree oil, and black cumin seed oil clear out congested pores, blackheads, and zits, while hexylresorcinol and licorice brighten old scars and even out skin tone. It might seem counterintuitive to put oil on acne, but because it absorbs quickly, it's suitable for all skin types, even oily and sensitive complexions. And to avoid the power of these clearing ingredients drying skin out, milk thistle, cucumber seed oil, chamomile, and neroli add nourishment and help soothe.

How to Use

Can be used day or night. After cleansing, massage on skin as needed. If desired, mix 3–4 drops into foundation before application to give hydrating, acne-fighting power to your makeup routine.

Completely changed the texture of my skin!

I’ve had pretty bad acne for most of my life and still struggle with a handful of spots. After using this oil my skin became a lot smoother and my face did not break out as much! The texture around my cheeks has gotten way better and I continue to use this oil everyday. Smell is a little odd at first, but now I’m totally used to it and it doesn’t bother me!

Nectar from the Acne Gods

If you have medium to oily skin, this stuff will be your godsend. I've suffered from acne for years, been to dermatologists, and used some serious cleansers to try to get rid of it. In combination with my regular skincare routine, this oil fits in amazingly. It is very drying, so people with dry skin may want a more mild oil instead. I used it once a day in the morning over my toner and under my moisturizer. I'm now down to using it every other day as my acne has cleared up.
Not sure how this would work on cystic acne.

This product has saved my skin

This product is a miracle. Over the course of the past month, it has completely reversed the texture of my skin and reduced the frequency of my breakouts. I have been struggling with acne for the past ~6 months and haven't been able to find a product that works in combination with the medicated creams my dermatologist has prescribed, but this has been the holy grail. The smell is off-putting at first, but I honestly look past it for the quality of the product. This is the first facial oil I've ever used that has helped to REDUCE my breakouts, and in combination with my acne medication, it has helped to calm down my skin while providing the necessary moisture needed to combat the drying affect of my medicated cream. I will never stop buying this.

Gentle & effective

Amazing for my bumpy, acneic skin. Be careful if you experience or are prone to dryness-- this did dry patches on my nose and forehead, ironically those are my oiliest spots naturally. Easily manageable and worth the results!

Great oil and really calms/controls my breakouts

Great oil, interesting smell and is one of the few oils that keeps my skin under control. The oil doesn't absorb quickly so I wait a bit before going to bed. Interesting smell which could be off putting but the results keep me coming back(plus good genes). I'm not re-purchasing until I get a regular size bottle of Luna oil and compare the difference. I've read that retinol will control breakouts and reduce wrinkles so that could be better.
