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

If it's friction that you want, look no further. This scrub definitely has some power. It easily scrubs away dead skin and leaves you face feeling squeaky clean. Luckily for my sensitive skin, this exfoliator is gentle enough to avoid irritation.

Origins is great at keeping it simple. Modern Friction is a wonderful exfoliate that is gentle enough to use daily. I tend to use this about 3 times a week to prep my skin for a mask. I don't love the smell of this wash, but it isn't super over powering and goes away quickly once finished

I LOVE this face wash. My face always feels clean after using it and I love the way the rice feels. I definitely break out a lot less because it cleans so well. It is a pricey product, however I do believe it is worth it as it lasts a good amount of time. Will definitely keep buying!

Love using this sparingly to manage my oily skin. The small beads clean my skin of gooky oil and keep me from having breakout. Don't use too much or it can leave your skin rashy.

I love this product!! I try to use it twice a week ( Monday & Friday) and it does an amazing job and keeping my skin feeling soft and fresh. One large bottle should be about a 3
month supply if using twice a week.

I love that this exfoliate is effective and deep cleaning, but not overly abrasive or harsh. It leaves skin feeling soft and really helps with clogged pores. I noticed an immediate difference in both the look & feel of my skin. Would recommend!

I absolutely love this product. The grainy texture of it feels oddly very satisfying and it exfoliates perfectly. I noticed results after just one use. I am not a fan of the scent of this, but I can look passed it because I love the performance.

Love the product. I had been using it from over a year and I just can't stop buying it. I think the price is fair for this product. It's very effective and I see the difference in my skin. I recommended for other who have acne problems like me!

Best exfoliating product I've ever used! I have re purchased this a ton over the past 10 years! It is so effective at getting off dead skin and really scrubbing your face. Pricey- but a little goes a long way and it is well worth the money!

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.
