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 30,000 five-star reviews, it’s a favorite among Amazon shoppers and it can be yours (on sale!) for $11, thanks to a pre-Black Friday event happening right now (it's called Amazon's Holiday Beauty Haul, and it's fabulous).

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

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.

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!”

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.

“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.”

And one more of the 30,000+ raves: "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 11 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.
