After exfoliating, hydrate and help fade lines and wrinkles with ORIGINS Starting Over™ moisturizer.

ORIGINS

Birchbox Breakdown

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.

How to Use

Two to three times a week, scoop onto fingertips and massage over dry, clean skin in circular motions. For sensitive skin, massage over damp skin. Add a splash of water and work into a gentle lather. Rinse well.

Please contact Customer Service (877) 487-7272 for ingredients.

Perfect for Sensitive Skin

Ive been using this so long, I remember when it was in a tub instead of a tube. I prefer the tube so much because it is so easy to get the product out. This is such a gentle exfoliator and it smells so good!

Gentle, Versatile Facial Exfoliation

Origin's Modern Friction is effective dermabrasion that leaves skin feeling silky smooth when used three or so times a week. And a little goes a long way. Apply three or four pea-sized drops to clean, dry skin on the chin, cheeks, and forehead. Use fingers to massage the scrub into the skin. Wet fingers a little and slowly work into a mild lather, making sure to avoid the eye area since this product can really sting. Then wash away thoroughly. You'll need to follow with a good moisturizer to soothe skin and replenish the lost natural oil and moisture, but this is very fine and very effective.

Very Good Exfoliation

Love this product! I love exfoliating and this really does an excellent job and feels like you just got a microderm abrasion. I do not have sensitive skin so I do not need to worry about over exfoliation but you can really feel a nice tingle after using the product. I like it on dry skin best but can use on wet for more sensitive skin.

Origins Modern Friction
Purchased

Looking for a good exfoliant that doesn't have the microbeads that are bad for the environment. This one doesn't have as much scrubbiness as I hoped for. And it is a little drying.

Incredibly softening and moisturizing

I have never found a manual exfoliant this moisturizing! I am so excited about how incredibly soft and plump my face feels after each use.

MY FAVORITE SCRUB

I bought this with a gift card, based on the rave reviews and it did not disappoint! It smells great, very moisturizing and gives a great scrub at the same time (without being too abrasive). I actually leave mine on like a mask for about 10 minutes; my skin feels fresh and soft afterwards!


I did receive the Vasanti BrightenUp! scrub as a sample, which was great but I still went back to my 'Origins' (see what I did there!)
