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 received this dermabrasion in a gift set at Christmas. I was so excited to give it a try. It is very effective yet very gentle. It left my skin feeling very smooth. When you first apply it, it feels a little thick but it washes off great. I also noticed a small tingle sensation while washing but nothing to be alarmed about. I did not notice any sand like particles but my face did feel super refreshed afterwards. I would buy this product in the future.

This product exfoliates my skin very nicely. I have extremely sensitive skin so I can't use harsh exfoliates. But this product takes the dead skin away and leaves my skin feeling smooth and clean. And I will totally buy this product again! And it's at an amazing price point as well!

do not waste your money. the only good thing about this is that it smells good. it does not work. there are not enough granular beads in it to do any type of decent exfoliation on your skin. and i feel like granular exfoliation will be a thing of the past. i will not purchase agin.

I recently got a sample of this product. Since I have sensitive skin I didn't wanted to buy it before trying it. I was very impressed with house gentle this was on my skin, smells fresh and leaves my skin very soft. So I got a big bottle! This is my go to at least 2 times a week

This is one of my absolute favorite exfoliators!  It incredibly effective!  It is pretty gentle too. I have purchased this several times and I will use this forever!  A little goes a long way so it lasts a long time. It is reasonably priced for the amount of product you get. Love it!

I like the gentleness of this i use it as an exfoliater because my skin is really sensitive and it works very well. I've used it multiple times and have continued to re buy it. i think it's very effective. i would definitely recommend it to someone looking for a product like this.

I like that you can essentially set it to the strength you want your exfoliation to be. If it is too harsh on dry skin, rubbing it in on to wet skin is still gentle yet effective. The only reason I took one star away is because of the added fragrance which some people could potentially find irritating

I love this product!! It's my go for exfoliating. I bought mine at Origins, and it was amazing!! I love how it makes my skin feel after. I use it twice a week, and my skin is glowing. I always buy this product when I use it all. It's one of the few products I buy religiously..

I absolutely love how the scrub it's made out of rice. I am a repeat user. I loved it so much on the free facial that I purchased it. It was not harsh at all. It's a bit on the expensive side for the amount of product that comes in it. However, you do not need to use it everyday. Twice a week will do which makes the price ok.

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.
