Here’s a balancing skincare line!
I’ve been a huge advocate for great skincare. I will continue to say this over and over again: “with great skin, comes great makeup!” Taking care of our very own skin is essential to getting the most flawless makeup application. Being a professional makeup artist, I know that in order for me to achieve the best look on a client, I must always prep the skin with the proper skincare my client needs.
I have had the opportunity to try the Ole Henriksen “Balance It All” Skincare Line compliments of Influenster and I’ve had a few weeks to test it on my oily/combination skin. Let me just say that I’m pretty obsessed with my new skincare products. Keep reading to learn more about the products I got to try.
The Ole Henriksen Find Your Balance™ Oil Control Cleanser ($25.00 USD) is a pore-purifying cleanser with powerful AHAs to reduce excess oil and unclog pores without stripping skin. This cleanser is great for oily/combination skin.
MY THOUGHTS: I personally underestimated this cleanser. I love the eucalyptus/peppermint scent infused in the formula and how frothy it becomes when mixed with water. I use this cleanser in the morning to give my skin a quick pick-me-up because I love to start my morning with the fresh aroma of mint!
The Ole Henriksen Balancing Force™ Oil Control Toner ($26.00 USD) is a pore-refining toner with salicylic, glycolic, and lactic acids to remove excess oil, clarify, and freshen the complexion without stripping skin. This toner is great for all skin types.
MY THOUGHTS: I don’t know about you but I love toners that make my skin feel tingly and fresh. What I love about this specific toner is that my skin feels minty and fresh without the burning sensation. I also love that it doesn’t feel like it stripped my skin of all of the moisture. This toner is something I will purchase for myself when I run out.
The Ole Henriksen Counter Balance™ Oil Control Hydrator ($34.00 USD) is 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. This moisturizer is great for all skin types.
MY THOUGHTS: Overall, this is a great lightweight moisturizer. I love the eucalyptus/peppermint scent and I love that it absorbs into my skin quickly. Is it my favorite moisturizer? NO. Although I have an oily/combination skin, I love when my skin feels hydrated with a layer of moisture from my skincare (maybe I would have loved the Moisture Creme instead of the hydrator).
I love using all of the products together (cleanser + toner + hydrator) because that’s when it’s the most effective when it comes to controlling my oil throughout the day. I feel like you can’t have one without the other in my opinion. But overall, they are all great products!
