Thanks to influenster and Ole Henriksen, I had the pleasure of trying out the Ole Henriksen Balance set. [I received these complimentary for testing purposes.] The set came with a cleanser, toner, and moisturizer, the basic skincare essentials. The Balance set is meant to balance out the skin and control excess oils without stripping the skin of its natural glow.
You guys know I live for a glow but I do have normal to oily skin, so this sounded perfect for me. After one week of using this set, I fell in love! These products have peppermint and eucalyptus, so they give your skin a new cool and fresh feeling. I feel like I’m going to love these even more in the summer months.
Find Your Balance™ Oil Control Cleanser $25 A pore-purifying cleanser with powerful AHAs to reduce excess oil and unclog pores, without stripping skin.
Balancing Force™ Oil Control Toner $26 – An oil-absorbing, mattifying moisturizer that minimizes the look of pores and delivers perfect hydration for balanced, healthy-looking skin.
Counter Balance™ Oil Control Hydrator $34 – A lightweight, mattifying hydrator with potent active botanicals and powerful AHAs to reduce oil and minimize the appearance of pores, and improve the wear of foundation.
As you will notice from the excerpts from Sephora’s website above, the products are made with Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHA)- glycolic and lactic acid and Beta Hydroxy Acid – salicylic acid. AHAs and BHAs are great for exfoliating and refining pores and texture.
The simple packaging and ingredients, mattifying properties, refreshing feeling and affordable price point all make these products winners for me. They’re perfect for those of us who have oily skin but hate the stripping feeling other oil control products leave. Check these out the next you’re in Sephora.
