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 for me

This is a cream-based scrub with a sprinkling of tiny scrubbing particles. It isn't suitable as a facial scrub for me because the particles are too scratchy and it stings my face. I've tried using it as a body scrub but the particles are too small and too far apart to be effective over a larger surface area. It isn't moisturizing after rinsing, either. I vastly prefer other scrubs to this one.

Let me start by saying I LOVE exfoliating my face, so when this came in my Birchbox, I was sooo excited!!
Well, much to my disappointment, this product didn't exfoliate one bit. So sad. I like my exfoliators to actually do just that, exfoliate. To top it off, it left my face feeling greasy, I actually had to wash my face again.

I normally love Origins but I feel they missed the mark on this one. First of all it felt more like a moisturizer or soap than a dermabrasion product as there were very few "beads" or whatever they're called in the product. The texture/consistency was way off- way too creamy to provide any good dermabrasion in my opinion. I didn't like smell either.

It is hard to get the product off your face after rubbing it on your face. The smell is not bad but like for a product to have a nice smell.

Really wish the samples were larger so you can get more than one use out of them.

Didn't like it. At all. Smells and feels like cheap soap with sand mixed in it.

I felt that for a dermabrasion, it was really disappointing. It's 'gentleness' seemed contradictory to the word dermabrasion

Not effective exfoliation, difficult to rinse off, just seems poor in actual quality.

So sticky!
Sampled

The this product was like trying to spread honey on your skin. It was thick and sticky. I didn't leave it on very long and it was starting to burn so I washed it off. This made my skin so irritated and red. Good thing I didn't have to go anywhere the night I used it. Probably not going to use it again.
