If you have oily skin, read this

Oily skin, speaking from experience, is a bit of a blessing and a curse. Oily skin is beneficial in the sense that ageing and wrinkles, down the road, are diminished if one has oily skin because the skin is typically quite hydrated. Oily skin can be a real pain in the ass in the sense that, oftentimes, your face looks as though it could be used to cook bacon when met with flash photography.

Nowadays, there is a multitude of cosmetic and skin care products designed to help combat oily skin. There are cleansers, toners, primers and setting sprays that claim to keep the oil floodgates closed when applied to the skin, but, unfortunately, a lot of the time, these products don’t do much to control oil production.

Recently, I came across an oil-reducing product via Amazon that had stellar reviews. Called the Oil-Absorbing Volcanic Roller by Revlon, its description is as follows from Revlon’s website: “Combat shine with ease thanks to this oil-absorbing face roller made from real volcanic stone. Just pop the cap and this compact shine buster is ready to roll, for on-the-go touch-ups, anytime, anywhere. Best of all? It’s reusable!”

To use this puppy, “Remove the cap, then gently roll the volcanic stone over your T-zone (across your forehead and down your nose), or anywhere you have excess oil. To clean, twist the locking ring around the stone clockwise to unlock, then remove the volcanic stone. Wash with warm water and your favorite gentle cleanser. Rinse and allow it to air-dry overnight before you lock it back in again.”

I can confirm that this thing does exactly what it claims to do, and it absolutely does reduce the amount of oil on the skin without disturbing your makeup. It’s super affordable, effective, and compact so you can throw it in your bag or coat pocket. What more can an oily gal ask for?
