  • The Details

    Finally, oily skin meets its matte. Developed as the product Ole wishes he had during his own struggle with oily skin, this lightweight, mattifying hydrator gives oily and combination skin types the essential moisture they crave. Oily skin needs hydration, too, to look its healthy best.

    This innovative moisturizer is powered by Green Fusion Complex™, a proprietary blend of potent active botanicals—green tea, eucalyptus, algae (kelp) and Irish moss extracts—with natural antiseptic properties. Combined with neem seed oil and powerful alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs), it helps keep pores clear and skin matte all day long while maintaining optimal hydration and a healthy balance.

    This groundbreaking formula also significantly improves the wear of foundation for up to 8 hours, making makeup meltdown a thing of the past. The complexion is soft, smooth and refreshed with a healthy-looking, matte Ole Glow™!

  • Inspiration

    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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from PERFECT I received this moisturizer as a sample with another purchase, and I was immediately obsessed. If I put it on under makeup, my skin looks flawless. Plus, it really does control oil!!!! After a long day at work my face is not oily at all. I just ran out of my sample and had to go back to my other moisturizers, and didn't realize how much of a difference there is. I'm buying the biggest bottle of it and getting it shipped asap. I'm gonna get all my friends hooked on this too. Thank you for such an amazing product!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It was ok I discovered the Olehenrikson line thru a makeup Facebook group where they were ranting and raving about the truth serum and the banana eye creme. So i purchased the truth serum and im hooked, stuff was amazing. Decided i then needed to try the banana eye creme and counter balance oil control moisturizer popped up. Im super greasy and that means you need to moisturize. this made sense and so i purchased it. When i recieved it i took a shower that night and used the truth serum banana, eye creme and instead of my trusty laneige water sleeping mask, replaced it with this. It has a nice smell, went on smoothly without any leftover residue, and sank right into my skin immediately. well went about my day and chased my 10month okd around. Sat in the sun, went for a walk, and did some grocery shopping. By the end of the day i was greasy enough to have a shine but not where when i wiped it i could fry up an egg. So i decided to give it a few more trys during that week and by the end of the day, pretty much the same result. So it helped contain a bit but not enough to where id purchase this one again. Although this didnt work for me i will continue to faithfully purchase the truth serum!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lightweight soothing moisturizer- very happy I've been using this moisturizer for over six months now (a little has gone a long way!) and am very please with my skin. This moisturizer is lightweight and feel water-based, not thick and creamy like other moisturizers that tend to clog my pores. The fragrance is slightly minty and calming, reminds me of relaxing at a spa. Definitely recommend for those seeking something soothing for their normal skin type.
