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

The Orgins Modern Friction Nature's Gentle Dermabrasion is great for cleaning the skin and leaves it feeling and looking refreshed. It is a great exfoliator, a little definitely goes a long way. The scrub is very gentle and smells great.

This is a great cleanser for someone looking to gently exfoliate the skin at the same time. The cleanser is effective and doesn't leave my skin feeling dry and patchy after. It also does not leave a residue after rinsing it off. A little goes a long way so a bottle will last you a long time. I'd recommend it to friends and family.

A gentle scrub for sensitive skin. After I used this product I immediately saw results. This left my face feeling really dewy smooth and glowing. I bought it at Sephora. I would absolutely buy it again.

Best scrub out there. It's not too rough but some how does a better job than any other exfoliator I've tried. Even my boyfriend who hates putting anything on his face steals it every time he sleeps over.

It’s a little too rough for my sensitive skin. It doesn’t lather well. It’s hard because you’re supposed to put it on dry skin and let it stay on for a little while. My skin does feel smooth afterwards but I can’t use this every week. More like every other week.

I love this product. My skin feels so refreshed and like it had a very deep clean to it. I found it works better with more water. But overall loved it and would definitely get again. Would recommend.

By far the best exfoliant I've try on my skin. It has a clean citrus scent and works to both cleanse and exfoliate. Afterward, my skin feels so smooth and soft. It's now part of my regular skin routine!

I’ve never been big into exfoliating my skin, but I do it twice a week now. This is the only product I will use for that. It’s extremely gentle, has a subtle but nice smell to it, and it leaves my skin feeling fresh and smooth. 10/10.

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.
