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

Nice product but a bit too abrasive on the skin. I have oily skin and found this was so aggressive it made my skin oilier. Has a nice mild scent and definitely exfoliates, but is way too harsh for frequent use.

Ive used a sample of this twice and I don't think it does much as far as exfoliating. The microbeads are in there but they don`t do too much. I also don`t really like the smell.

I really love this microdermbbrashion! i have sensitive skin so I am often weary of exfoliates and other products like such. However, this is very gentle but also does what you need it to. Highly recommend.

Great for exfoliating the face, but i wouldn´t recommend it for people with sensitive skin, its a little bit harsh, but after you wash it off your skins feels very refreshed, also not good for dry skin

It work ok with a brush but on its on with just your fingers or a cotton pad it isn't the greatest. Seems as though there aren't enough exfoliating particles to create the necessary friction.

I love origins products. This exfoliator leaves my skin smooth and bright! It even helped diminish some of my old scars and blemishes. It works fantastic with the Clarisonic. And with this scrub, a little goes a long way!

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.
