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'm a big fan of exfoliating--so much so that I constantly have to hold myself back from over-exfoliating. But this stuff is borderline painful and in my opinion it smells awful. I don't think anyone needs anything this harsh for their poor face.

I absolutely LOVED this for an exfoliator! It feels wonderful on the skin and my face felt like a baby when I rinsed it off! I didn't have any reactions or breakouts afterwards either ! Would hands down recommend and would definitely repurchase !

I love this exfoliator! It work great for me! I really enjoy exfoliating and getting my skin super soft. This wasn't too harsh for my very sensitive/dry skin. The packaging is very simple and not a concern. I would definitely recommend this item!

I'm on my 4th tube of this incredible "microderm" in a tube.
I use this as my main exfoliating product. It doesn't irritate, but does remove impurities with ease.
Your face will feel refreshed and squeaky clean. Can't recommend enough! ♡ sBm

My skin always feels soft after using this, always removes the dry skin I deal with! The scent is a little earthy but I don’t mind it at all. I really love origins as a brand!

I really like most of Origins’ products. However, I wish the microdermabrasion part was a bit more “micro”. This scrub was too coarse and the actual exfoliant was very sparse, making me feel more like I was rubbing sand on my face rather than getting a good microdermabrasion cleanse!

Do you want soft baby skin? Modern Friction leaves my face feeling so smooth for days! It's great for most skin types as long as you know how to use it. Use with water for a more sensitive application. You only need a pea size amount too! Kinda hard to squeeze out of the tube though...

This is a super great product for those with sensitive skin. It's gentle enough that you, hopefully won't experience irritation but still get those dead skin cells off. I do think people who are overly into exfoliating,  or whose skin can handle massive amounts may not be impressed. But the packaging is nicer than a bottle sof it doesn't waste product and i's easy to get the product out.

This cleanser works really well in exfoliating your skin. I heard of some people complaining that it is a little rough on sensitive skin however I can’t see hat happening. I feel like it’s a gentle exfoliating product but that’s just me.

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.
