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 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.1
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.1
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.1
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.1
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.1
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.1
I really felt I got a better clean with bar soap then this to tell ya the truth2
Not impressed for a Orgins product. Thought it would work better. It was too grainy and hard to rinse off. Didn't seem effective.2
It was ok. Didn't seem to make a big difference, but I only used it once...2
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.2
