Ole was inspired to dedicate his life to cosmetic chemistry after seeing his own oily “problem” skin transform with proper care. He created this mattifying hydrator to address the common fear that moisturizing already oily skin may cause additional breakouts.
This hydrator features OLEHENRIKSEN’s Green Fusion Complex™, a proprietary blend of potent active botanicals—green tea, eucalyptus, algae (kelp) and Irish moss extracts—with natural antiseptic properties to help absorb excess oil and refine pores.
Counter Balance Oil Control Hydrator is noncomedogenic.Counter Balance™ Oil Control Hydrator is rated out of 5 by 60.Rated 4 out of 5 by jjkk3 from Exceeded my expectations I’m so glad I got a chance to see this product. My skin is very oily acne prone skin and let me just tell you, the oils on my face have reduced tremendously. It doesn’t fully eliminate the shine but it is like a nice glow now. It’s very lightweight. One down side there isn’t much product for the price in my opinion but it works so I can’t complain!Date published: 2018-12-13Rated 5 out of 5 by Frktinaschmidt from Pure love There is no Woords - its pure love for my skin❤️ @frktinaschmidtDate published: 2018-11-10Rated 5 out of 5 by Tiff1165 from Amazing face lotion for oily skin Perfect face lotion for oily, congested skin!! I love the lightweight texture, the scent of tea tree oil and the fact that this lotion helped me with my acne. Since it has glycolic acid as well, this lotion also helps with texture. The results are smooth, clear, hydrated skin.Date published: 2018-11-10Rated 5 out of 5 by yellowcoatt from loveee All Ole Henriksen products are Gods sends. So i don’t even need to tell you about this product. My T-zone gets super oily and this def keeps it in check while feeling hydrating. Loveee it! @yellowcoattDate published: 2018-11-10Rated 5 out of 5 by melpo_m from Yesss I love olegsnriksen products but particularly this range. I have acne prone skin and it’s really hard to find products that are not too oily neither too dry. Definitely recommended to people with combo to oily skin. FYI check the scrub from this range too. You will thank me. IG:melpo_Date published: 2018-11-10Rated 5 out of 5 by Azizaj from Must have in your skin care routine I actually love this whole line! I just repurchased this a second time. I love the tingly feeling, because it’s soothing and I can tell the product is work. I have oily skin, so this is key in my skin care routine. I can’t live without it now! The majority of my skin care is Ole Henriksen products and my skin has never looked better- I get so many compliments :) and have loved sharing with others the products I’m loving!
