Sand-blasting skin with coarse, chemical crystals? How painfully passé. Here's age-smoothing exfoliation without irritation. Skin-refining Rice Starch, cushioned in cream, shows real affinity for rapidly removing sluggish cells, uneven patches and signs of skin damage and discolorations. Lemon Oil kick starts the process of illumination. Another age-sweeping action: skin-menacing molecules are mopped up. All while Aloe keeps skin calm and comfy. There's no ouch, extra steps or other complications. No redness or flaking follows. The before-and-afters are amazing. Signs of fine lines and size of pores appear to shrink in size. Skin looks perfectly polished, smooth and luminous. And the perk-me-up aromas of Bergamot and Peppermint help you look on the bright side.

  • "I LOVE just about all things Origins, but Modern Friction is definitely one of my MUST HAVE products. I love that it is gentle enough to use on sensitive skin. For a milder exfoliation experience you can use water and for a more abrasive exfoliation apply the product to dry skin. This stuff is amazing. It deeply cleanses the skin and sloughs off dead skin cells; revealing new and refreshed skin. It does not irritate or dry the skin, however, it can irritate the heck out of your sure to keep them closed." in 188 reviews

I love this exfoliator! I find when my skin is getting a little clogged or gunky- I automatically reach for this stuff! It smells great (very citrusy), and doesn't burn at all when you put it on. I find that it clears out my pores magnificently, but I will often only see results the morning following my exfoliating process. HOWEVER- I wouldn't say this product is "gentle". I have sensitive- very dry skin and would only use this product once-twice a week MAX. Always follow up with plenty of moisturizer!

It’s a very nice cleanser. I use this one and have also used the cleanser in the orange squeeze tube and very much enjoy them both. Great at taking off excess/stubborn makeup as well as exfoliating my dead skin off

This product is amazing! It is the perfect exfoliator. It is so gentle on your skin and leaves your skin feeling so amazing! I just love this product. Compared to other brands, this exfoliator not only works well but doesn't irritate your skin, which is amazing. I also think that it is reasonably affordable as well. If you're looking for a gentle exfoliating cleanser, I would recommend this one.

This is amazing! I used it a few times a week and i loved it. Made my skin brighter and helped to lighten my scars. I loved the packaging and the price was reasonable as well. Originally it had come in a tub but then the packaging changed to a tube which i was super happy about. It is gentle for sensitive skin and left my skin feeling bright and clean. Amazing and definitely recommend.

The texture of this is creamy. It creates a great creamy lather with amazing exfoliating beads.

My skin feels super smooth after using this. Origins never fails to impress me with their products!

This exfoliator is not as gritty as ones I'll usually use, but I must say, I enjoy that sometimes. I really like it, I love the feel and scent of it. I use it when I'm not really looking for a intense scrub.

While it a little pricey - it’s worth it! It’s amazing, my skin has never felt so good. It feels instantly smooth, clean and moisturized after I use it. I received a sample size at Sephora and was hooked.

I have extremely rough skin on my cheeks. I love the checks and balances cleanser by origins, I'm looking for a good exfoliator. Does this show good results?

I received this sample from sephora. I'm confused about what this is. Is it a cleanser, a serum, a moisturizer or a mask? Also, I have dry, sensitive, acne-prone skin. Should I even try this? Microdermabrasion in the name makes me think good for my acne, bad for my sensitive skin. But since I'm not even sure what this is, maybe someone can help.
