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 my favorite

Not a big fan of this product as I don't like that it's very sticky and hard to remove from face & hands. Plus I don't like the smell. I recommend if you're going to use this product use it in the shower

Too creamy and burns eyes
Sampled

I found this product way to creamy for a dermabrasion. I believe dermabrasions and exfoliates should be a little more grittier. I found that it left a film behind too. It also burned my eyes and kinda strung. If you're looking for a gentle exfoliator I guess this would be ok but overall I just thought it was a creamy cleanser with little chunks of hard stuff.

It's not a bad product. It's just not a product I would use. Not something I would spend my money on

Wanted to love it but just didn't
Sampled

I love this brand and I love exfoliators, so I thought I'd love this product, too. Unfortunately, the exfoliating grains are too big, making it rough on my skin, and there aren't really enough grains to go around, which made it hard to feel like I was doing much of anything. To make it worse, I thought it was hard to rinse off. Wish it had been love but it just wasn't.

Not for sensitive skin
Sampled

Not sure if it was the peppermint or the lemon or something else, but this gave me a mildly burning feeling. From what I understand about skincare this contains some ingredients that are known not to be good for skin.

First, let me start by saying that I'm an exfoliator guru. I know when to do it, how, and generally have My Thang worked out to keep blackheads at bay. So keeping that in mind, I was so underwhelmed with this scrub! It's way too gentle for me; it felt like a facewash (albeit a thick one) with a few granules of something in it. And then the smell was really off-putting. I'd place it as tobacco leaves and citrus. And...despite being "gentle," it left my skin dry. Womp womp. Would not buy.

And it burns, burns, burns...
Sampled

May be good for gentle daily cleansing, but my experience is that the rice starch balls up as soon as it hits my face. It doesn't seem to exfoliate much, and it feels pasty on my skin. I would have given this a better review except for this: if you get any of this in or near your eyes, may all the gods in all the pantheons in all the world have mercy on you.

Ouch
Sampled

I have sensitive skin, so this really wasn't for me. Too harsh for my face. The word abrasion scares me to begin with.

Smells gross and dried out my skin

This has an odd smell and left my skin extremely dry. Wouldn't recommend it.

Very oily
Sampled

This was a very oily formula and did not have much grit to it. If you have dry, sensitive skin, this may work well. For oily acne prone skin, it just made me feel like I had to wash the overly moisturizing film off my face.
