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 was talked into making a big Origins kit purchase to help with my flaking skin. It hasn't helped. I do really enjoy the products, smell, and feel. They are easy and the experience is positive. They just didn't help with what I was told they'd help with.

I love Modern Friction! I use this product about once or twice a week to get rid of any dead skin. It always leaves my skin soft and refreshed. The bottle lasts forever, so it is totally worth the cost. I would recommend this product for all skin types.

Absolutely adore this product! It heats as you massage it into the skin and leaves your skin feeling flawless after it's used! Like a perfect at home microdermabrasion for those who can't afford to splurge and have one done, highly recommend this product!

Highly abrasive exfoliant. Easy to dispense the product. However, it irritated my skin leaving it red. I had high hopes for this, as it had such good reviews but was ultimately left disappointed. Stick to chemical exfoliants, they're better for your skin.

I expected more from this product. I am oily, and acne prone. It failed to deliver the results I was looking for. I am used to getting high grade glycolic peels, so for someone just starting out, or doesn't have problem skin, this would be ideal for them.

This is all natural which is nice but it burns the crap out of my face!!! I have sensitive skin and I've never had something irritate me so much before. It was pretty crazy. A least it was just a sample size I had and didn't spend for the full size.

A wonderful product! Small scrubbing sand within the face wash will help you to exfoliate while still feeling environmentally conscious. Unlike a lot of its counter parts, this exfoliating face wash doesn't have large plastic beads that will clog up your drain or get into the sewer so aquatic animals will eat them. It exfoliates without hurting your skin, having sensitive skin it is the perfect fit for 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.
