I received the Ole Henriksen Balance VoxBox, courtesy of Influenster, a couple of weeks ago and I was pretty excited. This box featured Ole Henriksen's new Balance skincare line that is geared toward oily skin but without stripping. I made a little video explaining the box; check it out and check out my mini reviews below.
The cleanser is pearly in appearance and has a gel-like consistency. I removed my makeup with an oil before cleansing. I used a pea-sized amount of the cleanser on damp skin-the lather was sort of milky and creamy. The scent is herbal and slightly medicinal but not overpowering in my opinion. Afterwards, my skin felt clean, cool, refreshed and not stripped.
The toner has a herbally scent similar to the cleanser
And left my skin quite matte. I also felt a slight cooling sensation but no tingle or irritation.
This product is pretty lightweight and absorbs quickly. It left my skin fairly soft and matte. I used abou two pumps which was just enough. And of the three products, the hydrator seems to have the mildest scent, though still somewhat herbal.
Overall I thought the line worked well. The products were pretty effective while still being gentle and non-stripping. I didn't experience any breakouts or irritation. My skin is currently combination so I've been trying the line just once a day, otherwise it would be too drying. Once summer hits, and my skin gets oilier, I can use it more.
These products were sent to me for reviewing purposes-opinions are all my own.
