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.

Modern Friction
Sampled

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

Dermabrasion
Sampled

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.

Burning... I mean boring

I have been using a prescription dermatology product and my skin is dry and flakey. I was excited to get rid of the dead skin with this new gentle dermabrasion. The good news is my skin wasn't irritated by the product, but if you got this near your eyes, or god forbid in your eyes you'll want to throw this sample right in the garbage. Whatever they use as the exfoliator feels like chunky pieces in a sea of lotion and I am not a big fan of that. I prefer a finer exfoliation. I wouldn't recommend this to anyone.

Burning
Sampled

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.
