Sunday Riley U.F.O Ultra-Clarifying Face Oil

Hey guys!
So you probably won’t know, but I suffer from oily, acne prone skin and everything seems to break me out, which really sucks! I’ve been using the Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Concentrate for a couple of years now but fancied a change so started hunting online to try and find something that would focus more on clearing my skin. Everywhere I looked I noticed Sunday Riley products keep popping up. I did some research and decided to splurge on their new U.F.O Ultra-Clarifying Face Oil from Space NK.

U.F.O contains 1.5% Salicylic Acid, and is designed to help fight acne and clear congested pores. It contains a number of beneficial plant oils to calm, rehydrate and protect skin, including cucumber seed oil, jojoba oil, pomegranate oil and flax seed oil. 

The oil, which retails at £68, comes in a chic glass bottle and has a dropper dispenser. It’s a bright alien green colour (which I love) and has a really strong herbal scent, which you’ll either love or hate, but I kind of like it. It goes onto the skin really nicely and absorbs pretty fast.

At first I was a bit worried that it would irritate my skin because it has such a strong scent, however I was really pleasantly surprised. I’ve been applying 3 drops of this to my freshly cleansed face every night and I noticed a massive difference after only a couple of days. My skin started to clear up (yey), my red acne scars started to fade and my skin kind of had a glow to it. I’ve even had complements from people telling me how much better my skin looks which feels absolutely amazing!

I feel a lot more confident now to go out without makeup on, which to me is great because normally I have full foundation on wherever I go! Now I know it’s quite a pricey product and I don’t normally splurge on skincare, however personally I think it’s worth paying because of how well it works with my skin. To me, U.F.O really is an out-of-this-world product and I would really recommend it to others who also suffer from acne prone skin.

If you know of any fab skincare products to try let me know in the comments and I hope you enjoyed this post :)

SFX Glass Wound

Hi guys,
Ever since I started college, I’ve been playing around with loads of fx makeup and I’m obsessed. There’s something so satisfying about covering yourself in fake blood haha trust me, try it!
Since I’m pretty new to this, I sometimes find it hard to think of ideas, so I’m always checking instagram. That’s probably my favourite place to get inspiration because it’s full of incredible artists, my two favs being Powdah and Raniratt (deffo check them out)!
