Sunday Riley Luna- Worth The Money?

When I first heard everyone talking about Sunday Riley Luna Sleeping Night Oil I was pretty sure I would never think it was worth it’s rather high price tag but now that I have been using it for a while my view has changed a little.

If you somehow missed this product being everywhere earlier this year, it is an overnight retinol oil which is designed to improve appearance of damaged skin, reduce pore size and help fight wrinkle but since I’m not too good with the science-y bit, check out Caroline Hirons post for far more information.

Since I mentioned the price in the title I think it’s best we address that first, it’s £85. One of the most expensive skincare items that I own but I’ve been using it daily and I have seen such a huge difference in my skin.

I was expecting it to be quite harsh as everyone always spoke about instant results and although I too experience such results, it was still very gentle. Since the first time I used it I noticed my skin feeling smoother and healthier. It’s blue in colour which comes from the blue Tansy flower and is added for it’s anti-inflammatory and skin soothing properties but I apply it in the evening just before bed and massage it into the skin until I look slightly less smurf-like. Although it is expensive I only use a drop a day and it has been lasting me quite a while.

I’ve had good skin (by my standard) ever since I started using this, I have been waking up with a more even complexion and I love it. Yes, it’s expensive but it’s kind of worth it if you can afford it.
The best overnight treatment I’ve ever tried, even at £85.

    I've wanted this for ages now but I do feel that it is on the pricier scale. I love products that actually works and results are visible so this just sounds so good. I've been using my Estee Lauder night repair but I feel that i need a change in products and try something new.

    Great review. Have a lovely day ♥

    Sadly can't justify the price on this. I've been using the body shop one for a while now, but not too big of a fan. Time to find something new that is maybe a little more budget friendly I think.

    I've been using this since it's release, for around 6 months, not every night – but a few times a week at least – and I think it a fabulous product. It was the first retinol product I ever used and found it super gentle in that it does not dry my skin out but also very effective. I wouldn't have bothered about this type of product if I was early-mid 20's but being early 30's I though it was about time to try a retinol treatment. I've since started using a few other retinols, but this one is the least drying of all x

    The price tag definitely hurts with this one, and as someone with clear skin I just feel like I wouldn't see enough of a result. However, it is still something I would love to try!

    Yes, it is pricey but it really works without all of the usual retinol side effects. The blue color is due to the blue tansy in the product.I use it every night and haven't had problems with dryness or peeling. During the day I wear Good Genes. I love Sunday Riley because they are effective.

    Sounds amazing. A combination of natural oils and retinoids – because of the latter I understand why it shouldn't be used in the morning.
    I stick to hyaluronic acids recently, both in their pure form, and in a mixture of acid and natural oils, and flowers extracts. These are bio cosmetics, hence no parabens inside, and a quarter of the Sunday Riley oil price.
    But it's definitely worth checking it out, if only possible, and test on oneself, since each skin may react differently:))

    I got a sample for this a few weeks ago and I wanted to love it so badly, but it did absolutely nothing for my skin. I tried to apply it so many different ways just to get some sort of reaction, but nope nothing. I guess I should be happy though with that price tag, haha!
