In 1969, man landed on the moon. In 2009, Sunday Riley landed on the beauty scene, with a bright blue, celestial sleeping night oil called Luna. Since then, the brand has become a cult success, leaving behind a legacy of lunar-themed products.

From U.F.O Ultra-Clarifying Acne Treatment Face Oil to Blue Moon Clean Rinse Cleansing Balm, the brand’s moonlight skincare rituals promise to work as you sleep. There’s even a Space Race Kit which fights acne, oil and pores, while its cult star, Good Genes, skyrocketed to the top with its brightening, plumping properties.

Now the next gen of astronomical beauty arrives, with A+ High-Dose Retinoid Serum landing at Mecca Cosmetica this month. An advanced-strength retinoid serum that delivers a 6.5 per cent solution of stabilised retinoid blends and botanicals, it targets ageing and improves the appearance of congested and UV-damaged skin. Basically, it’s out of this world.
