Review: #OleGlow by Ole Henriksen

As someone who struggles with oily skin, controlling the unwanted shine in my t-zone has been an ongoing battle. After cycling through multiple drugstore face washes and toners, I decided to give the Balance collection by Ole Henriksen a go. Consisting of a cleanser, toner, and moisturizer this collection promises to mattify skin and unclog pores without stripping or irritating skin. One mention of oil control and I was in. After using this skin routine for over a month, I can honestly say it has made a difference to my skin.

As far as my everyday routine for class, I tend to skip the face makeup and stick to mascara in order to let my skin breath. While my skin feels healthier without any foundation, I feel more aware of the oil and blemishes occurring in my t-zone. I started using the Balance collection in the mornings to see if I could diminish the amount of oil on my skin throughout the school day. A quick wash with the Find Your Balance Oil Control Cleanser and a swipe of Balance Force Oil Control Toner and I was ready for the day. Being skeptical at first, I was pleasantly surprised to find that this product combination truly did keep my skin matte and oil free throughout the day. As I continued to use these products throughout the month, I also found an improvement with blemishes thanks to the salicylic acid within the ingredients. The products also include neem seed oil, eucalyptus, and rosehip fruit extract to help balance skin and diminish oil. I don't usually find myself reaching for a moisturizer in my skin routine, but did enjoy using the Counter Balance Oil Control Hydrator before applying face makeup to control shine and increase the wear of my makeup.

Overall, I recommend this product to anyone looking to diminish oil from their skin while seeking to maintain a healthy glow. This range of products has proven a great addition to my morning skin routine and helps my skin glow instead of shine.

Thank you to Ole Henriksen for providing me with these products to share my thoughts on.
