There is a fine line between having a radiant and glowing complexion, or skin becoming greasy or oily.

So if, like us, you've recently caught a glimpse of your reflection on a Zoom call and wondered how to get rid of the unwanted shine, we've found the answer.

Revlon's Volcanic Stone Oil-Absorbing Roller went viral on TikTok in 2020 after Tiktoker @looksbylexington posted a video of the affordable (and little well-known) £12 beauty gadget.

Her video has racked up 1.5 million likes, with thousands of men and women purchasing the oil-control roller to try it for themselves and posting similar positive reaction videos onto the platform.

In fact, the product proved so popular it has sold out numerous times in the US and only recently became available in the UK, where it's now available to shop on Amazon.

Why we rate it

The Revlon Volcanic Stone Oil-Absorbing Roller is fitted with a volcanic stone, which glides across the skin to absorb any oil from your face.

It is ideal when on the go, as it is compact enough to fit in your bag and is gentle on the skin.

Plus the roller can be used on clean skin or after products have been applied.

It is reusable and washable, all you have to do is unlock the volcanic roller from the main handle and rinse in warm soapy water.

The roller is now finally available to buy in the UK, and costs £12.22 on Amazon.

What the reviews say

As well as being a viral sensation, the Revlon Volcanic Stone Oil-Absorbing Roller has also received over 11,000 glowing reviews from shoppers.

  • "Finally they were back in stock so bought one for me and one for my mum. We both love them and we’re shocked at how well they actually work. Very happy."

  • "Perfect size for travelling with, it honestly does the job in getting rid of excess oils on the skin, although have not tried it with make-up on."

  • "I'm surprised by how well it works. My skin is super super oily. It's really light and [I'm] amazed by the difference. The oil obviously comes back, but I can definitely tell a difference after using it."

  • "No shame that this was something I saw on TikTok and just had to try. I have always had oily skin with or without make-up so I am amazed at how well this works. Perfect size and I love that you just purchase it once and can keep washing it. Love it!"

  • "I love this little rollerball. It's easy to clean and dries fast. I still find myself reaching for oil blotting papers throughout the day because if you have excessively oily skin you have to wash the ball between each use, but I like to use it as a 'first blot' in my morning make-up routine right before I apply my pressed powder, it really absorbs everything and creates a great base."
