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 was an okay cleanser just did not live up to its claims. I used this before my wedding with a Clarisonic and just did not see the results I was looking for. I got rid of both the cleanser and the Clarisonic.

I used it few times and it felt like it was pretty concentrated and active on my skin. It deep cleaned the pores and gave that light “resurfacing” effects. I think I would enjoy using it every or ever other week

After trying this product, you will never exfoliate the same way again! As advertised, this is a gentle exfoliant, however, it does not fall short of digging deep into clogged, dirty pores and cleaning them out. A definite recommend!

This origins cleanser had a modern friction version. I absolutely adore their checks and balances cleanser so I knew I had to try this! This exfoliates and gives a perfect luminous skin. It contains aloe and lemon oil as part of ingredients. It have helped my skin to get away from redness and flakiness. I highly recommend pairing with the checks and balances cleanser and you will see your skin illuminating!

Origins does it again, great product gentle but does the work it needs as a cleanser. Always meeting my expectation. I used this in a sample pack and would buy again. A little of product goes a long way.

This is a great exfoliant for the skin , I recommend to only use it once a week since the beads are a little harsh but it’s a overall great product if you’re looking for a nice deep cleaning of the skin

This product is okay I wouldn’t repurchase again just because I didn’t feel it did much for my skin. It was a very light exfoliation which was nice as some are to harsh for my skin but I didn’t notice a difference when using it and not.

Although the particles are slightly larger that Philosophy’s exfoliating cleanser, I like the gentle tingling sensation. It is invigorating when using in the morning or after an exercise session.

Origins Modern Friction™ Nature's Gentle Dermabrasion I have this in blackberry and vanilla and it's super creamy and goes on smooth. It's very hydrating and leaves skin soft. I recommend this lotion.

Great stuff when you need a physical exfoliant. Isn’t overly harsh. Leaves skin feeling fresh, clean, and smooth as a baby’s bottom. I’d keep use to once a week or you will see some irritation.

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.
