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 truly enjoy the formula and feeling or this product. It's feels so refreshing on the skin and as you scrub you feel these little grains just exfoliating your skin and getting rid of the dirt and dead skin. I recommend this product to anyone that suffers from textured skin and scars. It was helped me so much!

Here we have a lovely face scrub that is so great for when you need a pick me up facial wise. You apply a small amount and gently rub on a slightly moist face. Then slowly add water and massage into face and then lightly rinse off and pat dry. It’s like a mini facial at home! I keep this handy at all times.

This was the first high end scrub I ever purchased and I was very pleased with the results. It helped clear my skin, made a smoother base for makeup, all without irritating my skin in the slightest. I feel like it’s a bit overpriced but I would probably purchase it again on sale.

Use this regularly. Wish it would go a little further. Seems like you use more than necessary to cover face, neck and décolleté area. It’s very gentle and has a low foam which is nice. Would recommend.

This product came with an amazing face brush! I was hesitant at first due to having super sensitive skin, prone to acne, but this product was great! I used it once to twice weekly to clear my pores of makeup and excessive oils. I would recommend this product as it leaves the skin super soft and not irritated.

This is a gentle yet powerful exfoliator. I have very sensitive skin and it doesn't irritate. I suggest starting slow, once a week then slowly moving into no more than exfoliating 3 times per week. I also love the price point of Origins products.

Modern Friction is a gentle scrub that can almost be used daily.  However, it's a bit pricey to use that often.  I've used it off and on when there's a special but actually some lower priced products, such as St. Ives work just as well.

This is one of my fav exfoliators. Work it on a dry face unless you are sensitive and then wet your face . Once you wash off, your face is so smooth and soft. It works amazing! This can be used once or twice a week. And it literally last forever.

MY FAVORITE GENTLE, YET EFFECTIVE EXFOLIATING CLEANSER! The BEST! If you have not tried it, you MUST! It is a gentle to moderate exfoliating cleanser which I’ve purchased 3xs now. One lasts me about a year with twice a week use. AWESOME PRODUCT

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.
