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

This exfoliator is great it's not harsh on the skin at all and doesn't leave my skin feeling tight and dry, like most exfoliators and face cleansers do. It is great if you have sensitive skin.

Love this exfoliator it's perfect for dry skins since it gentle and doesn't strip the skin of moisture you can buy it at sephora and I would recommend using it 1-2 times a week depending on your skins dryness and sensitivity

I love this stuff. It is gentle as it claims. It has a different texture that I've never seen in other exfoliants. It's not to harsh to where you feel like you will scrub your face off but it's not to "light" to where you feel like it doesn't do anything. I actually feel like my face is refreshed after using this.

This is such a fantastic and gentle exfoliator. Gentle but totally effective! It has a very pleasant scent and makes my skin feel so soft after I use it. And it's gentle enough for every day use. Try it out! You won't be disappointed!

This exfoliater is not my favorite. I would say this is best for people with sensitive skin. I like a for lack of a better word harsher exfoliater, I don't feel like my skin feels much different after I use this product.

Origins modern friction is my all time favorite exfoliator. The particles are micro, and round, making it effective without leaving tiny tears on your skins surface.

My face is so so smooth after and I love the quality of the products for the price. It makes my skin feel nice and clean and is just the right amount of exfoliation.

The best exfoliating face wash hands down. A little goes a long way so it's definitely a product that lasts! The smell is great and it leaves your skin perfectly clean and soft. Origins offers free little samples but once you try it, you're going to get hooked!

I swear by Origins Modern Friction! It's a mild smell, so I like that it's not over powered perfume. I use it like once a week and it leaves my skin soft and free on the dry skin patches! Definitely worth giving it a try.

My favorite exfoliator! I use this twice a week and it immediately eliminates dry patches or dullness. It's a dense, concentrated formula with both mechanical and chemical exfoliators, so you only need a little bit.

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.
