  • Inspiration

    Over the years at his spa, Ole saw clients with oily skin who were afraid to use moisturizers and made the common mistake of over-treating their skin. Knowing that hydration is essential to skincare, he created this crème to ensure that oily skin receives essential hydration without fear of breakouts.

    Counter Balance Mattifying Moisture Crème is noncomedogenic.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointing! I purchased this moisturizer to help with my super oily skin. I was completely shocked when I noticed an extreme amount of oil around my nose and forehead hours after using it. Super disappointed to say the least.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The absolute best face moisturizer for tricky skin This is the stuff of miracles. I have always had tricky skin prone to breakouts. I'm also very pale, so any blemish is a real stand out. I've tried many sensitive skin products, high tech and super natural, prescription, beauty counter and drug store, and I was beyond stunned by how freakishly amazing this stuff is. Pimples are now very rare, friends coo over my dewy and perfect complexion, and I will go after Ole Henriksen hard if they ever drop this product or change the formula.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Satisfactory I am not happy with this product as I was with the Oil control Gel creme. This product made my skin dull and extra oily. Major breakouts and small rashes (no allergy) noticed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite of. All. Time. Seriously. I look forward to washing my face at night just to put this crepe on. Love how it doesn’t take forever to settle in, and leaves a refreshing feeling on my skin and really keeps it from getting dry. I first purchased on Sephora, but they’ve stopped carrying it in stores but just glad I could find it here!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Too heavy for my oily skin While this is a great moisturizer and doesn't feel oily when applied, it did not reduce the oiliness of my skin. When I tried it in the morning, my face was overly greasy by mid-day. I use it at night after washing my face, but took heavy for daytime use.
