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'm always on the lookout for a gentle, but effective exfoliator. Origins Modern Friction Nature's Gentle Dermabrasion is one of my faves to use a couple times per week. Definitely gentle enough to use on this sensitive face!!

I love how smooth this made my skin feel! I mistakenly used it daily and ended up with a rash, I consulted with an Origins Employee and was advised to use it about 3 times a week! The results are amazing! Highly recommend!

This is one of my favorite cleaners/scrub i use. I typically use 2x a week. It leave skin feeling soft and clear and revives the color and over all appearance of skin.

This is ok for me. It smells a bit weird, very earthy and natural. I never found that it did amazing things for my skin. Personally I prefer charcoal cleansers better.

The grit of the exfoliation is too rough for sensitive skin. That's the great thing about Origins; they give samples of their products in the store. I give it 3 stars because it felt like it worked, just too strong for me.

I only used this once but i loved it. it wasn't rough and left my skin really soft. the only reason I'm giving it a B is because i haven't been using it for too long!

I received a sample of this product in my ipsy subscription. Although I don’t like the scent, it definitely exfoliates nicely and leaves skin very smooth. This product could improve scent but other than that, it’s pretty great.

It has exfoliating scrubbers but they aren't rough and harsh like others are. It smells good and lasts a while for me. It's a little expensive but totally worth it.

Hands down the best scrub for physical exfoliation. I've been using it for 10 years, I always repurchase, it makes your skin so smooth. But do not get this in or around your eye area! It will burn

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.
