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

Bergamot and Peppermint, smell so earthy and soothing just like a spa. One of the most gentle exfoliators I have ever tried. Doesnt feel like you're rubbing sand on your skin. With the active ingredient of rice, helps remove skin patches and discoloration. Lemon Oil illuminates and aloe calming the skin. Although it says it for dry skin, I have oily skin and I love it.

I gave Origins Modern Friction 3 Stars because i didn't love it, but i also didn't hate it. It was one of those products where you use it 2 or 3 times and a slight difference, so it gets you excited about future results, and then... A few months later, you still have the SAME results from a few months ago. Maybe its just MY skin(oily/combo). The results hit a plateau after my 3rd use of it. I dont know. NOT a horrible product though

My favorite face wash of all time! I love how frothy it gets and it really does scrub your face without damaging the skin. There is lots of natural moisturizer in the scrub it leaves your skin fresh and clean. I like washing my make up off with a cheap face wash and then using this one after. It calms my skin! This is also a great face wash for my husband to use as well. Faithful user of this face wash for life!

I really like this product as it thoroughly scrubs and cleans and gets rid of dead skin cells without being overly harsh. However, it can really sting your eyes--make sure to keep it away from the eye area when exfoliating and fully rinse it off with your eyes closed as to prevent inflammation.

This is a great product because it leaves my skin feeling very smooth and it does not irritate my skin. I have fairly sensitive skin and the rice-starch (exfoliator) is well distributed throughout the cream that it isn't too rough on the skin. I really like the smell of the scrub and would recommend it to anyone who has very sensitive skin.

Completely in love with the smell of this product! It seriously smells like heaven. I'm a huge fan of Origins products but that shouldn't hinder you from trying their products. Love how this made my skin super soft and my face kept its natural moisture. Would buy loads of this whenever I get the opportunity to!

This was a super gentle but effective exfoliant. I have dry skin especially in my t-zone where my pores get clogged. I only had a sample size but I felt as if this did a good job of clearing my pores and could probably be used more than twice a week without being abrasive.

I was invited by Influenster to attend Origins #myperfectworld launch party. I got a mini facial at the store and loved how my skin felt after this product was used. It's perfect blend of Rice Starch, Lemon Oil, Aloe & Peppermint is guaranteed to leave your skin perfectly polished, smooth, and luminous. Totally recommend this product!!

Wow I love this product so much.  I bought a mini size that came in a trio and this was the first to empty.  I used to have pretty bad acne and I swear this fixed my face forever.  I used it as directed until I finished the bottle.  That was years ago and my skin has never been better.  After that, I never had huge breakouts.  I would recommend this product to anybody and everybody.

WOndeerful product!! I loved this for the time being. A very natural product with immediate results results. It's a light-medium weight product that does I believe suds up pretty good. It's has little piece of exfoliant that feels great against the face of you've been feeling clogged up. Would deft purchase this item again especial since it was super expensive.

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.
