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 scrub has a pleasant smell and is easy to apply to the face. It melts into the skin quickly and washes off cleanly. It is a bit abrasive, so it's not for those with sensitive skin. It makes your skin feel very clean and refreshed. Be sure to use moisturizer afterwards, though.

Modern Friction is playing Nature's game at it's finest with the balanced gentle dermabrasion of this cleanser. Light and basic, the initial experience with this product was wonderful. Definitely seems like it may need to make a repeat appearance in my routine.

I love that this product is all natural, and that it has rice in it for exfoliating. This product met all of my expectations, and I bought it at the Origins store. The packaging is clean and simple, and bottle last forever. I would recommend this to others 100%!

Origins Out Of Trouble™ 10 Minute Mask To Rescue Problem Skin face wash left my face dryer than usual . It did not meet my expectations. I had to use extra moisture for my face to start feeling normal again. I wouldn't buy this product again but I would try another cleanser from this brand .

Oh this is so good! It really irritates the eyes if you accidentally get it in there but it really leaves your skin super soft and it smells so yummy and citrusy. I have and will be buying it again.

I love this product! I see an immediate difference after using it - my skin feels softer, brighter, and clearer. I didn't expect much of this product but I am so happy I bought it and tried it. I will continue to buy and recommend all of you to do the same!

I love this product! I use it once a week and I immediately notice a difference in my skin. Since I have sensitive skin I dampen my face first per the directions on the bottle and it has never irritated, instead leaving my skin nice and smooth. I would definitely recommend!

This is the most amazing face wash I've used to date. It is great for oily skin because it cleans without stripping the moisture away from your skin. I first tried it in store with a mini facial and have not veered away from it since. It's a holy grail!

Such a great exfoliator! This is such a comfortable exfoliation that didn't irritate my skin. I think it can be used by many skin types because it feels gentle. The price is a good value in my opinion for the quality of the product. Definitely a must try! Everyone needs to exfoliate! :)

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.
