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.

Not a true "exfoliator"
Purchased

I found this "exfoliator" to be more of a slightly gritty paste rather than a sloughing exfoliator. I like my scrubs to have a super fine grit to them in a creamy base. This feels like I was putting oatmeal on my face. It doesn't smell very good, either.

Not what I expected

This product was the third of its kind that I've tried, and was a bit disappointed since I've enjoyed other products from this brand in the past. This dermabrasion scrub felt too thick and gooey, and because of that I felt like it was more difficult to really scrub it into my skin. I also felt like it left somewhat of a "film" on my skin afterwards.

Effective but HARSH

I was surprised by how harsh this product was given how gentle the other origins products I use are. I have combination skin that is super sensitive, and this really hurt my face. The exfoliating beads are huge and my whole face turned red after using this and felt very raw. I do not recommend this for people with very sensitive skin.

Good exfoliation

This worked well to exfoliate my skin however I have combination skin and it did cause my face to breakout. I think this product would work better for someone with dry skin.

Origins Modern Friction
Purchased

Looking for a good exfoliant that doesn't have the microbeads that are bad for the environment. This one doesn't have as much scrubbiness as I hoped for. And it is a little drying.

Nice cleanser, odd texture
Purchased

I understand that rice is a primary ingredient, but I can't get over how odd it feels and smells. The function of the cleanser is really good though. And it gently exfoliates, which is very important for anyone with sensitive skin. If you can get over the texture and smell, it's a great product.

Great product

I wouldn't use this everyday, but this is a great product for one a week. I tried it as a sample first from Orgins. I would do that at the store and come back here and buy it. See if it is for you.

Love this product!
Purchased

I have always loved Origins products. The smell is wonderful. This product works. My pores looked clean after use. If you have dry skin, make sure to use a good moisturizer because I did experience some dryness. Overall, great product.

Just wonderful!

I just purchased this product based on my need for a new exfoliater and the product reviews. I like it because it has a wonderful gritty texture that really does smooth out your entire face and it smells good too. I also think the price point is fair for the product

Great for everyday use

I love this scrub for everyday use. The results are pretty short term but it does brighten and even skin tone so I guess I can't complain. Mild enough for everyday use, although I usually average every other day.
