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

Loved this product and what it did for my skin. Haven't used it in a long time, but would definitely go back to it along with other products in the Origins line.

It’s a really good exfoliant. It’s just a bit too abrasive so I only use it about once a week. Nice packaging. I would recommend this but be careful if you have highly sensitive skin.

I wanted to love this product, but unfortunately, I can not give it more than three stars. The rice beads, while natural, are large and gritty. I didn't feel like they did much as far as face polishing, The cleanser also stung my eyes, even after I rinsed my face. If i touched my face and accidentally touched my eye area (it happens in the slower, where I mostly used this), they stung for a bit. I used it as a body scrub a couple times and liked it for that, but I would not buy this again,

It's so rare for me to find a salon like product for at home usage! I found Origins Modern Friction Nature's Gentle Dermabrasion finally a product equal to salon quality results! Its an absolutely amazing product it does exactly what it says and leaves your skin feeling renewed and looking youthful and fresh:)! I would highly suggest but only use once or twice a week and it's and exfoliant so be careful not to scrub to hard snd use a great Origins moisturizer to go along:)!

Origins Modern Friction™ Nature's Gentle Dermabrasion is a wonderful at home exfoliation product. I first tried this back in high school (like many Origins products) and it worked amazingly on my young, oily, acne prone teenage skin. Now, even as an adult I still go to this when I need to slough off the dead skin after a long few days. I live in Florida, so sweat and grime become commonplace on my skin and if I don't do some good deep down cleansing and exfoliate, my skin would be a MESS. It's not too rough, as some exfoliants can be, and is gentle enough to use every few days. Be sure to use your toner, serum and moisturizer afterwards!

Everyone should be well aware that microbeads pose a threat to the environment because it's made out of plastic and doesn't resolve. With that in mind, I LOVE origin's modern friction because it exfoliates my skin without using microbeads. Modern friction uses rice instead of microbeads so not only it's safe for the environment but it leaves my skin smooth like butter and gets rid of all of the impurities out of my pores. What more can I say other than two thumbs up?

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.
