Ole Henriksen Balance Skincare Review

PR samples from Ole Henriksen. All opinions are my own.

I was kindly sent products from the new Ole Henriksen Balance Control line from Influesnter to test. The new Balance line contains oil-controlling skincare essentials to mattify, reduce the look of pores, and balance the complexion, without leaving skin feeling stripped. I have mentioned a few times here and on Instagram that my skin is going through some changes and I’ve experiencing breakouts and oiliness that I haven’t seen since I was a teenager.


Find Your Balance™ Oil Control Cleanser is a lightweight, lathering cleanser with a deep purifying action to help unclog and purify pores. This has a pretty strong minty smell which I actually really liked. It also had a cooling effect which felt nice on my skin. It lathers really well and it did a great job at removing the products I had on my face.


Balancing Force™ Oil Control Toner is a concentrated facial astringent that removes excess oil and refines pores, refreshing and invigorating the complexion. This contains witch hazel which definitely helps to keep the oil at bay! After use, my skin instantly feels fresh and clean. It clears up the oils without leaving my skin feeling dry which is definitely nice.


Counter Balance™ Oil Control Hydrator is an innovative lightweight moisturizer that helps keep pores clear while maintaining optimal hydration and a healthy balance. One of the most difficult things for me to find is a good moisturizer that provides hydration without leaving my skin greasy and oily. I think this is the one! It is super lightweight and goes on smoothly, but it also mattifies and helps to prevent oil throughout the day. This is supposed to also act as a primer helping foundation to last up to 8 hours. I haven’t tested this yet, but fingers crossed it works!

Have you tried any of these products from the new Ole Henriksen line?
