Before and after: Ashlei’s skin looked oily after wearing makeup for eight hours while rubbing the gadget over her face as it absorbed the oil from her skin, giving her a smooth, airbrushed complexion
She was shocked when she rubbed the gadget over her face as it absorbed the oil from her skin, leaving her with a smooth, airbrushed complexion.
Many people in the comments said they were eager to get their hands on the gadget after seeing Ashlei’s impressive results.
“Girl, I watched your video this morning, drove an hour to my nearest pharmacy, and packed the last one. I can’t wait to be oil free,” one woman wrote.
“When I say I sprinted to Amazon, ma’am, I’m not kidding,” said another.
Ashlei has gained a loyal following of over 38,000 followers for her makeup transformations and helpful beauty tips
Another video Ashlei uses the ‘volcanic’ beauty stick on her bare skin to see if she can achieve the same matte finish.
“Now this has also just been cleaned so we’ll try and because my complexion is oily it’s good to see – plus it’s very humid, it’s 90 percent humidity now,” she said in the clip.

The makeup artist explained that while there was “a slight difference” with bare skin, the results were better with makeup.
Ashlei has gained a loyal following of over 38,000 followers for her makeup transformations and helpful beauty tips.
Revlon’s oil absorbing facial roller is made from a real volcanic stone and can be used on clear skin or your finished face without ruining your makeup.
It can be reused and cleaned just like a makeup brush with warm water and cleanser.
The gadget has caused a stir online since American beauty influencer ‘Looks by Lexington’ put him in a TikTok video, which opened when she bemoaned her “really oily” skin to her 2.7 million followers.
With the camera close to her, the San Diego social media star gently rubbed the rollerball over her forehead and seemed surprised when the oily shimmer that glistened above her right eyebrow disappeared instantly.
“It literally takes all the shine off and it doesn’t mess with your makeup at all,” she says in the clip. ‘What the heck, this is crazy, I’m obsessed. Wow!’
The video, which has been viewed by 8.4 million people since it was shared, caused a nationwide sale in the US.

Revlon marketing manager Carmen Coulter said the incredible response to the product in the US prompted the brand to launch it in Australia and other countries.
She wrote Lexington’s TikTok video for much of its commercial success.
“There is no doubt that social media has played a part in the success… in the US and as a result we have had many customers locally asking for the roller since they saw the video on TikTok,” said Ms. Coulter. news.com.au.
