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 was a staple in my skincare routine for a while. I really like it for exfoliating and for keeping my skin bright and clear. I plan on repurchasing soon because I miss having it in my routine. Try it out!

This is great to use once a week or every other week when your skin needs a little something extra to make it look amazing! A little goes a long way and the large tube of this has lasted me for nearly a year!

Super effective, gentle microdermabrasion. The packaging is cohesive and keeps the product nice and moist throughout frequent usage. I would recommend this to people who have sensitive skin and cannot use scrubs.

This is a very gentle exfoliator for your face. It's not harsh and doesn't feel like sandpaper against he face. It is a little too gentle for me though. I bought it from origins at a Macy's. It's great though.

I love this exfoliator. It's extremely gently even when I use it with my Clara sonic. Used it about 1-2 times a week whenever my skin needed a little bit of an extra cleanse. Was non drying for my combo skin and the smell of almonds was lovely.

I LOVE this product. You start off using it dry and it really exfoliates the skin. If you add a little bit of water afterwards, it foams up like a cleanser. My skin looks great afterwards and feels baby soft.

I love that this product is all natural, even the exfoliation grains, but its not very exfoliating. And when I spend that much on an exfoliating product, I expect to get more out of it than just a cleanser.

Very nice gentle exfoliater. I had received a small travel sized bottle from Macy's so I'm not sure about the price. It was efficient and effective and it did smell nice. I would possibly buy the full size.

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.
