Modern Friction Nature's Gentle Dermabrasion

Item #: 2307177 Size: 4.2 oz

Sand-blasting skin with coarse, chemical crystals? How painfully passé. Here's age-smoothing exfoliation without irritation. Skin-refining rice starch, cushioned in cream, shows real affinity for rapidly removing sluggish cells, uneven patches and signs of skin damage and discolorations. Lemon oil kick starts the process of illumination.

Another age-sweeping action: skin-menacing molecules are mopped up. All while aloe keeps skin calm and comfy. There's no ouch, extra steps or other complications. No redness or flaking follows. The before-and-afters are amazing. Signs of fine lines and size of pores appear to shrink in size. Skin looks perfectly polished, smooth and luminous. The perk-me-up aromas of bergamot and peppermint help you look on the bright side.

    Comments about Origins Modern Friction Nature's Gentle Dermabrasion:

    I have sensitive, dry, and sadly: acne prone skin. Any irritation breaks me out, and during my time of month, it's even worse. Before I apply this, I spray Origin's mask primer to damp my skin just a bit. The slightly damp skin allows for easier and gentler scrubbing. I usually scrub for an entire minute and rinse as well as possible. It is a bit hard to rinse so I sometimes take it off in the shower. My skin is left super clean, not irritated, nor overly dry.

    Comments about Origins Modern Friction Nature's Gentle Dermabrasion:

    I bought this because I wanted something to improve the appearance of my skin. And it worked wonders for my textured skin. It made my skin completely smooth and glowing. I have oily skin with big pores, so this stuff is just amazing. Follow up with the balancing tonic water!

    Comments about Origins Modern Friction Nature's Gentle Dermabrasion:

    This is a great GENTLE microdermabrasion face scrub. I was hoping for something with smaller granule sizes that really got down in there, but I find that this works very well. Hopefully in the future Origins will come out with a finer microdermabrasion paste, but until then, this is great!

        Comments about Origins Modern Friction Nature's Gentle Dermabrasion:

        After using a number of excellent Origins products over the years I was Very surprised by this one. Feels like using a $5 discount store scrub. Feels rough but doesn't seem to exfoliatate. The particles are not fine enough to make any impact. Would have sent back but I got it as part of a special offer so not worth it. Very disappointing product.

          The scent was the best characteristic about this product. The quality of exfolation was just ok for me.

              When I first walked into origins they want to give me a facial. They walked me through what my cleaning regimen would be and started to clean off my make up. When she use the modern friction on my face, she started on one side to show me the difference after using the exfoliating cream and left the other side of my face unscrubbed. This by far is the best part of my regimen and I look forward to using it on Mondays and Fridays! A.K.A Modern Friction (MF to remember when to use the exfoliating cream)

                    I Loveee this product , it is very gentle, you would have to be super sensitive not to like it. It does not rip,scrap or tare your skin like most exfoliates. Leaves skin smooth and more vibrant. How ppl get this product in their eyes is beyond me. You should not use any product that close to your eyes. Eyes should be closed when rinsing. If used properly you will get amazing results. This product and the charcoal mask are a perfect pair.

                          When I got a sample of this I was beyond excited to give it a go! It smells amazing the instant you open the tube and it looks like a gentle exfoliant. However, this is definitely not something you'd want to use on sensitive skin. I have fairly sensitive skin that is quickly irritated so I wasn't very surprised when this wash turned my face red and stinged a bit. I wish there were a gentler formula because I would totally love it. This would be fantastic for people with really tough skin.

                                My skin has been flaky lately and I used this scrub and it didn't quite work so well. It seemed like it would because it was thick and grainy when I took it out of the container. When I started to scrub its like all the grain spread out and the small pieces did not get to exfoliate so well. My skin was still flaky after so I think I will try another scrub.

                                      I have sensitive skin and some dark spots that have really bothered me and I've tried multiple products but they always irritated my face and didn't help at all. This product was perfect for my skin, it exfoliates but is gentle on the skin. I also use an exfoliating brush with it and it has transformed my face! My face looks fresh, my dark spots have dramatically lightened up and my skin doesn't look dull anymore!
