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've used origins masks and moisturizers before, but this was my first time using an exfoliater from them. It felt like my skin was burning, and my face was very warm for awhile after using it. And even though I didn't have it near my eyes, it made my eyes sting too. This product did not get along with my skin.

Too harsh for my skin
Sampled

I love Origins products, but this dermabrasion is just to harsh on my sensitive skin. Not matter how lightly I rub it, my face is always left red. Any other additional products, I put on to my skin that day seems to increase the agitation, even if they would normally not bother my skin.

Not very exfoliating
Sampled

There aren't enough scrubbing beads and the bits they do have aren't very rough. Doesn't exfoliate at all and it doesn't rinse of cleanly. Smells good but it isn't very effective.

not a fan
Sampled

I'm not expert, but based on what my dermatologist had told me, I don't feel like this product is good for my skin. The fact that it's made by Origins makes you think it is, but I have been told by my dermatologist not to use exfoliators with large chunks in them. When I read that the tube said "natures microdermabrasion" I thought it would be a micro-bead exfoliator, which is the only kind I've been advised to use. But it was definitely not. It reminded me of St. Ives apricot scrub, which I used for years and recently stopped because I heard it's horrible for you 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.

It was ok. Didn't seem to make a big difference, but I only used it once...

Not for me

The exfoliating bits (sugar,salt, not sure) were huge and far between. If they were smaller and more of them I would have liked this more.

It doesn't do anything, hard to rinse off
Sampled

This product smells good but has no exfoliating power whatsoever. It is thick and requires a lot of water to smooth on and rinse off. It didn't do anything. I am surprised that it has so many good reviews.

Tacky & Even More Tacky
Sampled

The formula of this cleanser exfoliator is super thick, it barely moves to be spread across your face. It says that it is a gentle dermabrasion but for me personally it is way to gentle, I felt like because the formula is so thick and that it barely moves that I would be missing places on my face to cleanse and exfoliate. Once I rinsed the product off I felt like there was a film still left of my face of left over product. I honestly don't think I will ever use this product unless I seriously was in a pinch and rain out of other products that I currently have.

I do enjoy scrubs. But didn't notice anything great about this one like many others. Same ol' scrub as many.
