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 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.

Odd texture
Sampled

This product was baffling - in between a heavy lotion and an exfoliator. I felt it useless for purposes of exfoliating or smoothing out my skin, the beads were weighed down by the heavy base.

Origins is a good brand but nothing special
Sampled

I like other Origins products but this isn't anything special. It is also not that great at leaving a nice feel on my skin. Maybe it needs more moisturizing properties to balance it out?

Just ok...
Sampled

This product is just ok... I have nothing blatantly negative to say about it- except that it is outrageously overpriced in my opinion. It has a nice texture although I found it to be a bit too gentle and the smell is fairly unappealing. This, combined with its price= no buy in my book.

Way Too Gentle
Sampled

In my opinion, the 5 beads that were in my sample do not count towards any sort of exfoliation. This product was way too gentle and just felt like lotion on my face rather than an exfoliation.

Not Impressed for a Orgins product
Sampled

Not impressed for a Orgins product. Thought it would work better. It was too grainy and hard to rinse off. Didn't seem effective.

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

Not for me
Sampled

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.
