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 nlavithi from BEST SKINCARE BRAND EVER!!!! I discovered the Ole Henriksen brand a few months ago and since then I never stoped buying their products! I tried most of their products and I loved them ALL!!! My favorite skincare brand!! My skin has improved very much during the last few months. Thank you Ole!!! love you <3Date published: 2019-04-13Rated 5 out of 5 by Rosie95 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.Date published: 2019-03-08Rated 5 out of 5 by cat97 from Perfect moisturizer! The balance collection has seriously changed my life! I have never gotten so many compliments on my skin! I have always struggled with acne and the face wash and hydrator have worked so well. Highly recommend!Date published: 2019-01-03Rated 4 out of 5 by EBeaty from I love this serum! This is light weight but checks the box in the moisturizing category at the same time! I love the smell! Minty and fresh! I don’t give reviews very often. It has taken me a long time to find a moisturizer and oil controller for my face. I have combination skin that is extremely acne prone with cysts. This product has become a favorite of mine and that is saying a lot since I have tried so many!Date published: 2018-12-19Rated 5 out of 5 by Esiankiki from The freshest I have an oily T-zone, but at the same time my skin tends to be dry, especially in the nose-mouth area, and especially in winter. This toner helps containing the oiliness without drying my skin. The smell is amazing and it leaves a nice refreshing feeling.Date published: 2018-12-17Rated 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: 2018-11-10
