TikTok has the undeniable power to make beauty products go viral, selling out items like lip-shaped K-beauty masks and rainbow body butter in recent months. But perhaps one of the most popular beauty products on TikTok is an oil-control roller that keeps going viral — and selling out.

TikTok can’t get enough of Revlon’s Oil-Absorbing Volcanic Roller, thanks to its oil-control capabilities. The roller is made of volcanic stone, which absorbs excess oil on the skin without disturbing your makeup. It’s the same concept as blotting papers, but since it can be used again and again, the easy-to-clean roller creates less waste in the long run.

To use the stone, simply roll it on your face where shine and oil are present. The results are instant, as seen in a viral TikTok by user @looksbylexington. The TikTok seems to be a major reason behind the rollers’ incredible popularity, gaining more 1.5 million likes on the platform.

In the clip, @looksbylexington says, “It literally gets rid of all the shine, and it doesn’t mess with your makeup at all. What the heck!”

To clean the roller, you simply twist the top open, remove the stone and wash it with warm water and face wash. After drying overnight, it’s as good as new.

There’s a lot to love about this roller that more than a million people “like” on TikTok. Plus, you have to admit, cleaning your face with volcanic rock is pretty badass.
