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 absolutely love this product and it's one of my favorites. I use it twice a week and it works great. I even love the name! It's very effective but it can be very costly. Other then that an absolute must get.

This is a must-have in my skincare routine. The price is excellent since you get so much product and the bottle lasts so long! I would definitely purchase again and I wouldn't change a thing about the product.

Hands down my favorite exfoliating face wash I've ever owned. It always leaves me feeling life I've scrubbed the grime and ick off my face but it's still gentle at the same time. And it smells good too!

I received a sample size of this in a beauty box. I can't remember which one. I didn't get to use it enough to fully rate it. However, it did leave my skin smooth, soft, and help

I have very sensitive and acne-prone skin. This product did not cause any acne and was gentle enough for daily use. It truly took off the top layer of skin leaving a smooth, clean face. The scent and consistency was pleasant and natural.

Great exfoliating product! Not harsh so perfect if you have sensitive skin. You don't need a lot of product to get a good result, so I think it's a great value! Give it a try!

Love this as an exfoliator! Smells super good and fresh and really makes your face smooth! I only have a sample of it but I’m planning on buying the full size when I run out.

This is a great exfoliator. Apply to a dry face and rub, then add some water to make it froth. I use this twice a week, and it keeps my blackheads at bay and my skin glowing without ever being harsh.

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.
