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 is OMG!!! I have super bad dry, red patches on my cheeks. I was so scared of trying new products but the guy from Origins assured me that after trying this, I will be back. He was so right! I loved it and bought another one. My skin cleared up after 2, just 2 uses. This is now a staple.

This is a great weekly facial scrub for my combination acne prone skin! I can't use it more than once or twice a week without irritation. I love how smooth and clear my skin looks after I use this product.

This is my favorite exfoliator. I have very sensitive skin and the 'grit' in this feels great on my skin. It doesn't leave me blotchy and red like others I have tried. The scent is very light and refreshing.

I absolutely love this exfoliator! It smells amazing, leaves my skin so, so soft. You can apply it to dry skin or wet skin if you've got sensitive skin. I really recommend it if you've got dry or oily skin.

It is a must item. I used it once a week. It exfoliates nicely and very gentle on skin. My skin doesn't feel dull anymore. It is worth the money. It also gave even tone to my skin. I highly recommend it.

This stuff is so good!!! I got it in my ipsy or birchbox, so I only got a small sample that lasted about two uses, but this stuff worked wonders!! I have very dry skin and after use, my skin was so soft!

This is my favorite scrub! The only one I use now. It's light enough and gentle to use every day, but will scrub off the yucky stuff. I use this right after I wash with checks and balances face wash.

I’ve tried several brands to compare and this brand is definitely the best microbrasion wash. The tube it comes in now is much better than the jar that was previously used. Your skin will immediately feel softer and smoother after use.

I don't really feel like this is a freak exfoliator. The particle sizes are weird not the fine grit I like from apricot or sugar exfoliators. It also burns really bad if you get too close to your eyes

One of my favorite face scrubs. This uses little rice kernels which would seem to be too harsh but it's really gentle and my face feels very clean and soft afterwards. It is kind of pricey though.

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.
