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 product is great to exfoliate the face. Leaves skin soft and moisturized feel also. It has microparticles that exfoliate without harming the skin. It has an herbal scent that I love.

I didn't really like this product. The exfoliator pieces were too large and the cleanser left my skin feeling oily. This didn't work for me at all. The scent wasn't great either.

A fairly good exfoliant, not too gritty and I enjoy the lemon-y citrus scent. My skin feels super clean and smooth after use and ready for a bevy of nighttime skincare products.

This is a great exfoliator. It has a lemony scent that's so refreshing. The thick texture makes it great to apply leave on for a few then rub. Was super happy with this product.

This is THE must have facial scrub that leaves the skin feeling brand new! The exfoliation is too perfect and it doesn't dry out the skin at all. It can even be used daily. One of my Holy Grail products.

It is different to use a dry scrub but it is worth it. Really gets the dead skin off. Leaves the skin looking even and soft and I only had to use it twice a week which is great. Would recommend to anyone looking to freshen up their skin.

This product is ok. It is very gentle, which I had mixed feelings about. It didn't hurt or dry my skin out but I didn't think it was intense enough to fully exfoliate. Would be great for sensitive skin.

Almost as good as getting a facial. This is definitely one of my favorite items from origins. I like the way it works, you can also use it with a clarisonic brush as well.

Gentle exfoliator, not too gritty with creamy texture. Leaves skin very soft after use. Best if used about twice a week. A little on the pricier side but don't need to use too much product each time

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.
