Which Sunday Riley oil is right for you?

Like puppies in a pet shop window, you’d be forgiven for believing you need EVERY Sunday Riley Face Oil – but, (sad) truth is they all do different things for different skin types, so find out which is right for you…

If skin is acne-prone you need {U.F.O.}

Brimming with pore-purifying salicylic acid, antibacterial tea tree, invigorating black cumin and calming milk thistle, this otherworldly offering is ideal if you’re prone to breakouts, excess oil or monthly ‘wobbles’. An exfoliating oil (trust us, it’s a thing!), this refines skin’s texture (preventing congestion while diminishing dark spots and scars) while soothing any redness and reducing inflammation to leave your face feeling soft and looking luminous. It’s essential for quelling rebellions (we mean that in a strictly non Star Wars way)…

If dullness is your bugbear you need {C.E.O. Glow}

The clue’s in the title… A powerhouse cocktail of brightening, dark spot-diminishing and luminosity-boosting botanical actives, {C.E.O. Glow} works to quickly recapture your radiance. Brimming with vitamin C (in the guise of THD Ascorbate) alongside turmeric and soothing evening primrose oil, this nourishing blend works to lessen brown patches, fade blemish scars and revitalise when things are looking lacklustre. Perfect for putting a ‘zing’ in cells’ steps, this stimulates skin and works hard to help fortify barrier function – shielding your face from free radical damage while swiftly restoring long-lost uniformity. Say “Hello, Glow!”

If your skin is normal/combination you need {Juno}

Basically… this covers almost every skin care base. Whether you’re looking a bit lacklustre or your complexion is betraying signs of stress, Juno’s radiance-enhancing cocktail of nourishing extracts will swiftly transform your skin’s fortunes. Rich in brightening, antioxidant vitamin C to protect from the ageing effects of free radicals, alongside resilience-enhancing fatty acids (omegas 3, 6 and 9), this conditioning elixir helps to replenish and revitalise, for skin that positively glows with health.

If you’re worried about signs of ageing you need {Luna}

With a beautiful, deep blue hue, this night oil absorbs almost instantly when pressed into newly-cleansed skin before bed. Rich in retinol and anti-inflammatory blue tansy extract, this elixir helps to combat signs of stress and encourage repair – enhancing cellular regeneration so you wake up looking dewy-skinned and youthful. The ultimate foil for dullness and fatigue, this plumps, revitalises and reduces depth of wrinkles… in fact, it might be quicker to list what this doesn’t do. It’s a gorgeous night treatment for anyone who’s hoping to prevent development of creases or ‘undo’ existing damage.
