Review | Sunday Riley Luna Sleeping Night Oil

Luna 1

I have been so excited to bring this review to you of the Sunday Riley Luna Sleeping Night Oil.

I received this small sample (about 5ml) in my Space NK 25 days of advent beauty and I have been using this very sparingly and still have over half left but I want to tell you what I think of this magic little potion.

Claims (from the Space NK Website)

A next-generation retinoid oil to reduce pore size, improve appearance of damaged skin and help fight wrinkles.

With an advance retinol complex, Luna helps reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles while simultaneously correcting damage caused by the sun, time, and pollution. Use this oil before bed to notice firmer, clearer skin by morning. Trans-retinol ester fights the look of fine lines, wrinkles, and loss of skin elasticity while an essential oil complex calms and soothes skin. Cold pressed avocado, chia, and Concord grape seed oils sink into skin for quick absorption of actives while boosting radiance.

Luna 2


The packaging for this sample is a little glass bottle with a pipette but I do know the bigger size is a lovely square bottle with thicker glass.


In the evening, following your main cleanse and second cleanse, after serum and if you want, moisturiser, add two or three drops to the palm of your hands, rub them together and smooth over your face. Sleep.


This is a typical light oil…it’s not greasy at all and sinks in to skin really quickly.


I am not going to lie, the scent of this product is not my favourite. It’s very herbally however it’s subtle enough to not linger for too long so I can bear it. If you’re sensitive to strong scents you have had a warning. Maybe try to get to a Space NK to smell it.

Luna 3


Yes, it’s Blue! This unique oil is blue in colour. It’s a deep navy blue. This doesn’t translate on to your face once applied and it doesn’t stain (if you’re sparing with the product). I love that about it. Makes it so appealing.


This is where this get’s exciting. As you may be aware I am in love with over night face serums, creams, gels and oils and this is like a little miracle worker.

My skin feels so incredible and plump and soft and just revitalised, even when my dog Rupert wakes me up at 3am (most nights at the moment, grrr!) I still wake up to amazingly soft skin. AND THE BEST THING. You just sleep through it’s magical skin wonders.

Waking up after using the Sunday Riley Luna Sleeping Night oil feels like you have had a facial in your sleep, without the cost and the embarrassment of snoring on the table.

I believe there is something in the herbalness that really aids sleep too, which is why I feel like I sleep better.

Plus, Luna, what a lovely name, it reminds me of a character from Harry Potter.

Final thoughts

I will definitely be buying a full size of the Luna Sleeping Night Oil, even at the princely sum of £85 because of two reasons, it’s AMAZING and this tiny sample has lasted such a long time meaning a full size bottle will probably last me a year!

    This sounds like such a fantastic night oil, and I really like that it contains a Retinol complex. It’s so odd that it is blue, I wonder what ingredient causes the blue color, but I bet it is a pretty oil, lol. It seems to have great results for you and I wouldn’t mind giving it a go x

    My wife has been trying loads of different skin oils and things like that recently… I may have to get some of this for her to try… The whole sleeping through it bit would really make her happy, haha.

    It sounds like a product that really works, but I don’t know if I could get past the scent of it.

    I love that it is blue! I think I would need to smell it if I was considering purchasing it because if I paid that much for something then didn’t like the smell my boyfriend would kill me lol x

    I’ve heard so much about this. Not tried this before but so tempted! x

    This sounds too good to be true :), but like you I do love my serums. I have not tried a night oil before, but this sounds like a great product, and although a high price as you say you only use a tiny bit so over a year will probably work out cheaper than the cheaper ranges. Am definitely going to look into this x

    Sounds like an oil to have. I am moved to wanting to check it out

    It’s great to hear that the night oil is actually not oily at all after you apply it on your face and it doesn’t stain your pillow case. It’s even better that it actually works and leaves your skin soft and beautiful.

    I am so giving this a go! I love everything about it! Looks fantastic – will let you know how I get on x

    I’m not getting any younger and I really need to improve my skincare routine – seems like the easiest way to start is with a night cream or this night oil which sounds even more nourishing than all the creams and serums I’ve been hearing about.

    This was great, thank you! Now I need a sleeping oil in my life.

  13. March 17, 2017 / 9:09 am

    That’s such an interesting sleep oil. I’ve used overnight masks but not oils. I wonder if you can buy sample sizes of this to try out x

  14. March 17, 2017 / 9:14 am

    wow £85, but if a product does good I always see it as worth the price xo

    I need a miracle cure for my skin! It’s so dull at the moment. I find my tone of my skin is so uneven too! #LeahXLUD

    Ha can you imagine if the dark blue did colour the face! I like the sound of this, im just not sure I am ready to pay all that money x

  19. March 18, 2017 / 6:51 pm

    Apart from the smell this sounds like a good night oil and I love that you said it feels like getting a facial overnight x

  20. March 19, 2017 / 1:16 pm

    Wow! This truly does sound like a miracle potion! I have never tried it before but am very tempted to give it a go as your skin truly did look amazing when I saw you last week xxd
