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

This really stung my eyes, and was incredible harsh on my dry skin! I actually received a sample lately and tried again, but it was no hope! A real shame as I usually love Origins' masks and other products.

I liked this product but I didn't love it as much as I thought I would. It went on easily and left my skin feeling smooth but then it got really dry. I think it's just the wrong formula for my skin. If you have combination skin rather than dry skin I think it would be different.

Really Great. This product is super effective, yet gentle enough for sensitive skin. Top Tip: do not use this in the shower. the product works best if you use if after cleaning your face and then rinse off at the sink.

I used used up three jars of Glamglow before discovering this in a bundle pack I got from Sephora. It smells great, and you can use it on dry or damp skin. I use this sparingly because the results are so great that I don't have to use it more than once every one or two weeks. It can be a little harsh on my sensitive skin if I use it too often. Favorite exfoliator right now!

This is a great facial cleanser! I got it in a sample set, and slowly it has become my favourite exfoliating cleanser! It leaves my skin feeling sooo soft and clean especially after days where I have been working hard or have been outdoors all day. I'm thinking of buying the full size, cause it is really good!

My go to for an exfoliant ! Has a really fresh smell. I only use a small amount ( a little goes a long way) and because my skin is slightly sensitised I mix it with water. Slugs away the dead skin, helps with blackheads and makes my skin look brighter! Have been using for years would definitely recommend!

I tried this and still try it when I can however i felt like it was too rough on my skin. the packaging was great but it was too rough on my face and felt like i was disappointed. i was a first time user and probably will not buy it again due to the harshness.

This is a great, powerful scrub. The rice is an interesting addition. Be very, very careful that you do not get any of this product in your eye! It burns like a mf. Leaves my face feeling fresh.

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.
