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

Feels great, smells great! I tried this in a small pack as an add on and I am really glad I did. I will purchase this again. Even with sensitive skin this felt light and gentle!

This stuff works really well and is great, but very boring. Every other brand I like has something similar, and most of them do a little more, or at least don't smell like glue.

Super gentle and you can control how harsh you want this to be by adding water to it and applying to the skin. Doesn't have a heavy fragrance and a little goes a long way. One tube has lasted over a year for me with twice weekly use!

I was hoping that it would leave me skin feeling very exfoliated but I found the beads were not plentiful. In my opinion, it is not an exfoliator. It does cleanse though.

This is the best exfoliator I've tried. Seriously. A little comes a long way! I got it as a value pack at sephora and I will buy the full size one. My face feels extra refreshed after using it.

This is a good, fine exfoliater and would be really great for super sensitive- dry skin. However, I don't really feel the benefits of this exfoliater and feel that it really doesn't make a difference. This is a pass for me

This is one of my favorite products by origins, makes you feel so fresh and clean after you've washed your face! It has a very earthy/healthy smell to it which honestly smells incredible. Takes away dead skin and leaves your skin feeling amazing smooth!

My new Holy Grail product! I LOVE this scrub. I use it twice a week and what a difference it has made in my skin. It has far exceeded my expectations. I look forward to using it, although it is a bit pricey, but I will re-purchase. I highly recommend!

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.
