ORIGINS Modern Friction™ Nature's gentle dermabrasion

We never used to look forward to scrubbing, but all that changed when we found this natural exfoliating cleanser. It keeps skin looking fresh and smooth without the irritation of other sloughs. The star ingredient is rice starch, which binds with water molecules to banish dirt and dead skin.

I really disliked this product. I feel like the granules provided pretty weak exfoliation and that there weren't enough of them to really scrub my face.

Bad reaction
Sampled

First time I used it my face broke out with little red bumps, redness and itchy. Too bad because I wanted to like this

False claims!
Sampled

There is nothing "gentle" about this exfoliant. Origins advertises it as if it is made for sensitive skin, but two of the main ingredients (lemon oil and peppermint oil) are MASSIVE skin irritants, especially after you just rubbed your face raw with rice starch! Unimpressed by the ingredients panel.

I find this product to be far too abrasive for my skin. I've tried it a few times. I like the body version far better

I was excited to use this product. I have pretty sensitive skin and my face was red and rashy for days after using.

Not effective
Sampled

The exfoliating particles were too large, and there were few of them. When I rinsed it off, my face felt a little slimy, almost. I did not care for this product at all. I have normal skin with an oily t-zone.

Filmy, stings, and turns my skin red
Sampled

I used it on my face, big mistake. It smelled delicious and the dermabrasion was not too bad. Not gentle though. But then, when I washed it off, it stung my eyes quite sharply. I rinsed and rinsed and rinsed and still feel like I have a film on my face. I usually like Origin products. But this one dried out my skin and hurt!

Horrible
Sampled

Full of irritating ingredients. I knew I shouldn't have put this on my face. After one try my face was extremely irritated, red, and swollen. There is nothing gentle about this product, in fact, it's dangerously harsh.
