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 product is amazing!!!! Especially for oily or combination skin. I use this once a week and and my face feels softer, smoother, and it takes the dead skin off of your face so It doesn't clog your pores. I highly recommend buying this product.

I love Origins because it is never tested on animals and is fantastic for sensitive skin like mine. I use the dermabrasion once a week to remove dead skin and it leaves my skin feeling baby skin smooth and refreshed. I would recommend all Origins products.

I love this... the only cleanser/scrub that I've tried that actually CLEAR OUT my black heads... it was so amazing to see them clear after trying other products that claim to do so... I use it once a week, on clean dry skin, and add a little bit of water to ease it up if it feels too harsh with just the scrub. The times I forget to use this, i break out in my T-zone, so this is definitely a mainstay for me

This is my ultimate favorite exfoliator. I'm obsessed with the texture and the results. It works best when applying on slightly damp skin almost dry it really works to remove all dead skin. My skin feels baby soft after using this. I recommend this to everyone its gently enough for any skin type

This is my go to exfoliation wash. I had an origins employee try it on me and I have loved it since! I take it every time I travel. It's a great value I've had it for a considerable time. Maybe if it was less thick? I have to water it down to wash.

the texture of this product is suuuuuper thick. it took a bit getting used to at first - you need to add some water to get it to spread on your skin. it exfoliates thoroughly while still being gentle on your skin. i love how clean my face feels after using this.

This is a great product, the exfoliating bits in it are not too rough, but are abrasive enough to get the dead skin off and leave your skin feeling really smooth. I have the travel size and it came with me to London recently, it was perfect for clearing out the dry skin after the plane ride. Definitely going to repurchase!

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.
