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 the way it left my skin feeling new and fresh without feeling like I had used an extremely abrasive chemical. I could see a brighter skin tone to my face. It just made my skin look renewed without any of the damage that other dermabrasion products can some times leave behind.

I really like how this product leaves my skin feeling so smooth afterwards! I use it maybe 2-3 times a week but make sure you moisturizer well afterwards. My skin is combination, kinda oily but dry and my skin is really dry after using this product.

I adore this. It is such a gentle exfoliator but really does the job. It smells great and makes any dullness improve and makes you just glow. However if it gets in your eyes it burns horribly so be careful. But it's so worth the price tag!

I love Origins products. I bought this product from Sephora and I love it. This face wash exfoliates your skin without it being too abrasive. My face always feels a lot cleaner than with other products and it isn't too drying either.

Super gentle exfoliator that leaves my face feeling smooth and refreshed. I have been using it for a few weeks now and I am extremely happy with the results so far. My face feels less dry and flaky during these colorado winter months.

This is a good product , its gentle and work great at exfoliating. It is really pricey for the amount you get so I suggest trying to get it on sale or in a gift set. It works best on dry skin and feels like a gentle cleanser on wet skin.

I love this product. It exfoliates my skin without taking off too much and leaving me dry. It leaves my skin feeling firm, yet flexible. After using his product, I apply a moisturizer to lock in the moisture and my skin looks so fresh.

A gentle exfoliator. I have combination-dry sensitive skin in the winter, and after using this product my skin was smooth and not dried out.

I appreciate when products are low/not scented--and this has a very light scent. I use it once a week and has been working beautifully.

I absolutely love this! It leaves my skin feeling so rejuvenated and I love the smell of it. It's gentle enough to avoid drying out your skin when used on a regular basis. Of course the natural products of Origins are always great.

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.
