There's no way to outright prevent oil from accumulating on the skin (as some is a skin necessity), but there are helpful tools that can help reduce some of that shine. Oil can be beneficial—it helps reduce the appearance of wrinkles and moisturizes the skin—but when it gets to be too much, shoppers are turning to an under-$10 product for a more matte-looking face.
Once a viral TikTok sensation, Revlon's Oil-Absorbing Volcanic Face Roller remains a popular option among Amazon shoppers, and it's racked up nearly 15,000 five-star ratings. The product absorbs excess oil as you move it across your face. Although it's similar in purpose to single-use blotting papers, this roller is an eco-friendly alternative, as it can be cleaned and reused.
For those wondering where it gets its name from, Revlon confirms that the roller is made of volcanic stone that absorbs oil from the skin. Safe for use on the face, the roller is meant to be pressed lightly against the oilest areas of your skin.
To buy: $10; amazon.com.
Fans of the roller were "legitimately shocked' by the results, and some even fell in love after the first use. "You simply roll it around your oily areas, and boom, the oil magically vanishes into the ball never to be seen again," wrote one shopper.
"Nothing else I've used has helped for more than mere minutes. This works for hours," according to a reviewer with combination skin. "After using this, I don't have to keep wiping oil off the nose pads of my glasses every few minutes."
Another person who took the roller for a test run wrote, "I don't know what sort of sorcery this is, but this thing totally works, and it's freaking me out… It sucked that oil right up. I cannot believe I have been wasting money on blotting paper when this was out there and reusable."
With its $10 price tag and status as certified viral sensation, this oil-absorbing face roller is one product you've got to test, especially if you deal with oily skin. Head to Amazon now to try what shoppers call a "must-have" for yourself.
