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) £12.99 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 is finally back in stock in Boots in the UK.

Why we rate it

The secret to the success of the Revlon Volcanic Stone Oil-Absorbing Roller is the volcanic stone in the roller which glides across the skin to absorb any oil from your face.

This gentle-on-your-skin gem is ideal for when you're on the go, as it's compact enough to fit into your handbag.

The roller can be used on clean skin or even after you've applied makeup - it won't mess with any of your carefully applied products.

And it feels so good to use, too - it's almost like a mini face massage. It's also environmentally friendly - no need for single-use blotting paper.

It's simple to use - remove the cap then gently glide over your T-Zone and any other areas with excess oil.

It is reusable and washable, all you have to do is unlock the volcanic roller from the main handle and rinse it in warm, soapy water. Then rinse it off with clear water and allow it to air dry overnight.
