“I’m not ashamed to say I saw this on TikTok and just had to try,” wrote one shopper. “I’ve always had oily skin, with or without makeup. I’m amazed how well it works! It’s the perfect size and I love that you can only buy it once and keep washing. I love it!”

The story goes on

“I saw this on TikTok and had to try it out! It’s small and portable and fits snugly in my makeup bag. I have a combination with oily skin and I usually use it at lunchtime to delve into and it does the job.” Another wrote, “It’s easy to clean (I use my detergent to wash it) and dries quickly. Instead of using a facial blotter or two, I can run this over my face and get the job done. Less that way wasteful. “

Some buyers complained that if they used the roller too often while wearing makeup, part of the product would be removed. Others have recommended saving blotting papers if you have very oily skin to protect yourself from washing the roller after each use.

“I bought [the Volcanic Roller] after seeing it on TikTok for both my roommate and myself. I really like that it’s less wasteful [than blotting papers]. If you are super oily I can’t say this is the best because once you’ve rolled the ball around and it absorbs the oil, you need to clean it, “remarked one buyer.” I’ll say it works very well (how amazingly well) and is easy to clean, but unfortunately not a complete replacement. “


Revlon’s Volcanic Oil Absorbing Roller is an affordable beauty hack that can help improve the look of your skin if you have lightly oily or combination skin and need a pick-me-up at lunchtime. At $ 16, this is a low risk investment if you’re looking for something to add to your morning skin regimen or keep handy in your makeup bag and don’t like the thought of buying multiple packs of blotting paper.
