Get to Know Sunday Riley Skincare

I have been hearing about this skincare line called Sunday Riley for the past year now. Tons of celebrities and influencers are using the Sunday Riley Luna Sleeping Oil. So, when I saw it on my recent trip to Sephora I knew I had to try it.

A Little About Sunday Riley

The brand Sunday Riley launched in 2009. Barneys was the first store to carry the line. Even though it was being sold in Barneys, the brand did not have a big budget for advertising. Instead of letting themselves stay small, they did something else I find really interesting — they decided to turn to social media in order to get their products into the hands of social influencers who would try their products and then help advertise. It worked!

Sunday Riley is an actual person and a cosmetic chemist. She studied chemistry at the University of Texas. She worked in cosmetic labs to help bridge the gap because there was miscommunication between scientists and marketing companies.

I stopped using retinol some time ago because I hated my skin looking red and flaky. Sunday Riley says that retinol products, “while effective at reducing signs of sun damage and acne scarring, can also cause dryness and flakiness. However, by using a gentle (yet equally effective) retinol ester in a highly moisturizing oil base in combination with a soothing essential oil blend, the same results can be achieved without any of the typical irritation associated with retinol.”

This is why Luna Sleeping Oil works so well!


My Favorite Sunday Riley Products

Luna Sleeping Oil

The Luna Sleeping oil is a soothing retinol that works without the awful red and peeling side effects that you might get from using other retinols. The Luna Sleeping Oil is a blue color but goes on clear. It gets its blue color from an anti-inflammatory ingredient called blue tansy oil. This incredible product also contains retinol ester helps fight the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and loss of skin elasticity. It also has German chamomile and avocado seed oil. Luna is clinically proven to improve the appearance of fine lines, radiance, and skin smoothness in as little as four weeks.

I’m so happy that I found Sunday Riley’s Luna Sleeping Oil because it’s less harsh on my skin. Every morning when I wake up I notice that my skin is smoother and brighter. The results are definitely more gradual. It does a good job moisturizing and hydrating as well as turning over thousands of cells.

“Luna Sleeping Night Oil is my personal ‘holy grail,’ must-have product. It instantly calms and smooths my skin and I see results overnight in my fine lines and wrinkles. I’m a mother of three, I work full time, and I don’t get as much sleep and exercise as I should. Luna is my secret weapon to keep people from knowing that!”—Sunday Riley
