Forget blotting papers — Revlon's $9 facial tool makes 'oil magically vanish'

In case you missed it: There's no longer any need to pack blotting papers in your purse or freak out if you forget your compact. Those days are done. There's a new on-the-go solution to shiny, oily zones, and it's taken the internet by storm. Revlon’s Oil-Absorbing Volcanic Roller is the clever little tool about to change your life. With more than 36,000 five-star reviews, it’s a favorite among Amazon shoppers and it can be yours (on sale!) for $9.

A serious improvement on blotting papers, this compact roller is made of volcanic stone that soaks up oil without messing up your makeup.

Why is it a good deal?

You don't have to go to a department store to pay a bundle on skincare products. A trip to the drugstore will do that just fine. So at only $9, you're scoring a deal on a product that'll make your skin look great and cost almost the same as a tube of lipstick.

Why do I need this?

Wouldn't you rather have a simple, small, reusable anti-shine tool than tiny wads of paper littering the bottom of your handbag? And as far as upkeep? The stone is washable — just twist to remove — so you can refresh the effects anytime you want.

Using the same engineering as a roll-on deodorant, this brilliant facial tool is a dream. Just roll it over your T-zone, and watch the shine disappear. The action end of the roller is made of natural volcanic rock — and it does more than absorb oil. It also gently massages your face.

What reviewers say:

Says one happy customer: “This rolling device is like pure magic. Or voodoo?!” You simply roll it around your oily areas and BOOM the oil magically vanishes into the ball, never to be seen again!”

“I was skeptical when I ordered this, but it works and works well!” wrote another thrilled customer. “I have very oily skin and use it often throughout the week. Simple as rolling it on your skin. It feels good too, it's cool and smooth. It's also very easy to wash. Buying a second one to keep in the car.”

"I love it!" raved a third. "This thing is amazing. It can absorb off all the oils from your skin. It seems to work forever. I usually wash it every few days but I have not had it ever get to the point where it won't work. I just wish maybe it was bigger but it's also great to have it small cause you can take it with you in your purse. If you are on the fence about this, jump off. It's worth it!"

And a final of the 36,000+ fans: "Saw this a thousand times and finally decided to order, and man oh man, am I glad I did. It’s small, making it the perfect on-the-go item. I love it because It doesn’t take off my makeup but gives the most perfect matte look. Bye-bye greasy forehead...." And hello, Revlon Oil-Absorbing Volcanic Roller. Grab it while you can for just 9 bucks!

An updated answer to blotting papers, this roller is made of volcanic stone that soaks up excess oil instantly without messing up your makeup.

"I use the product around my eyes every morning," a happy shopper said. "No odor that I notice. Works great diminishing the bags and dark circles. Best of all the tube lasts me months when used as suggested. Feels great if kept cold in the fridge."
