      Ok, so here's the scoop: this product can give you microdermabrasion like results, if you use it properly. You don't need to use much--about three pea-sized drops, one for the chin area, one for the cheeks, and one for the forehead. Do this after cleansing, preferably out of the shower. Massage the exfoliant into the skin, distribute evenly over face and neck, then add a splash of hot water and really work it into a lather. The rice granules will exfoliate, but the true exfoliation comes from the lemon oil in the cream itself. Work to really massage the lather into the skin for about a minute or two, then rinse off with several splashes of warm water, continuing to work the lather. The texture of your skin will be vastly improved if you use the product in this way. Don't do it in the shower and don't use excess product. It is VERY concentrated. If used as described above, it is one of the best exfoliants on the market, guaranteed. You'll see brightening, a firmer, smoother skin surface, and the subsequent skincare products used will sink in like a dream.

      Tried this in-store when they gave me a mini-facial and I liked it a lot, it felt nice and cooling. Just got it in the mail today and I was really excited to try it out, and when I did, I felt this horrible burning sensation on my skin near my lips and nose. My skin isn't the type to be sensitive, so I don't know what happened. Will be returning this product.

      My favorite face scrub

      By 

      from California

      Comments about Origins Modern Friction™ Nature s Gentle Dermabrasion:

      Modern Friction was the very first Origins product I tried. I was completely out of my usual scrub then and wasn't able to buy it for some reason. I happened to be at the mall, and walked in thinking of buying a scrub. The nice associate not only gave me information about this scrub, she told me overall benefits etc. :) I've been a fan ever since. :)

      If you are going to a dr for microdermabrasion, STOP! This is amazing I've suffered from years of cystic acne and scarring from licking at my face, this made my face so smooth and glowing!! Won't ever use anything else!

      excellent product

      By 

      from Punta Gorda, FL

      Comments about Origins Modern Friction™ Nature s Gentle Dermabrasion:

      I am 65 and have been using this product for over 5 years. I have always been blessed with good skin, but I also try to care for it with a good cleaning, but not a harsh cleaning. I use this product in the shower after I have finished using the Checks and Balances wash, so my face is wet when I apply. NEVER has it irritated my skin. I use it 2-3 times a week, and am pleased with it's performance. My skin feels fresh and thoroughly clean afterwards without feeling dried out. Finally, an exfoliator that thoroughly cleans without irritating my skin.

      Must find online directions

      By 

      from San Diego

      Comments about Origins Modern Friction™ Nature s Gentle Dermabrasion:

      ORIGINS: Could you update the package to include directions on the back? I was sent this as a gift with my large order and was told by my sales rep it was okay to use with a little water if needed, but no weather instructions. After it caused problems with my skin I learned online it should be used only on dry skin, only use a little bit, and only a couple of times a week. Instructions right on the bottle would have been helpful. I'm going to change my use now, but not sure how it will work out which is why I only gave three stars. The jury is out.

      Make Sure to Apply to DRY Skin!

      By 

      from Asheville, NC

      Comments about Origins Modern Friction™ Nature s Gentle Dermabrasion:

      More than once, I had received samples of this product in the past and was just not impressed. It rinsed off too quickly, didn't exfoliate as well as store bought brands, etc. I gave up and went back to my previous drug store exfoliator. Fast forward to a month ago when I chatted with Origins via their website and found out this should be applied to DRY skin. Game. Changer. I correctly used what was left of my last sample and immediately bought the larger size of this item. Applying dry makes a HUGE difference and my skin thanks me for learning this. Instead of exfoliating daily with the harsh drug store scrub and still looking dull, I'm able to use this twice a week and get even better results. I adore this and can't see ever switching back.

      BURNING

      By 

      from New-York, NY

      Comments about Origins Modern Friction™ Nature s Gentle Dermabrasion:

      I love Origins and use lots of their products so when I received this as a gift I was very eager to try. Right after a few seconds I started feeling this burning sensation in my skin. This exfoliator did leave my skin clean and soft afterwards even though it was red for a while but I couldn't get rid of itchy burning sensation for a few hours after use. I must say I never thought of my skin as being sensitive and have never had such a reaction to any product but this one. I would love to like it but it just won't work for me. Be aware if you are about to try this for the first time, it might just irritate your skin. And surely keep it away from your mouth and eyes.

      I purchased at the store and works wonders on my face! But, then decided to try on my hands and even my little brown spots diminished, wow! Just love it!

      from Guam

      Comments about Origins Modern Friction™ Nature s Gentle Dermabrasion:

      My skin is sensitive- but just like everyone else, sensitivity levels differ. I don't have a major problem with acne, but when using the wrong products, my skin gets really red and dry. Not this this product! Received this product as a gift and loved it ever since. I use about half-a-dime size with each wash and do it routinely three nights a week and LOVE the way my face feels after each use. It just feels lighter and brighter. I pair it with the Drink Up Intensive - Overnight Mask and my skin feel so lovely in the morning.

      Not for me

      By 

      from Pittsburgh, PA

      Comments about Origins Modern Friction™ Nature s Gentle Dermabrasion:

      Let me start by saying I love Origins products and normally they work really well for me. This product is definitely an exception to that. I have very sensitive skin so I was a little hesitant to use this but I recevied this in a gift set so I figured I might as well give it a try. The morning after use, my face was extremely broken out. I had little red bumps all over and 2/3 very large pimples. My face is normally clear with the occasional breakout here and there. I could not believe this made my skin freak out as much as I did. If you have sensitive skin, I recommend trying this on a weekend in case your skin does not react well.

      Definitely a Favorite

      Comments about Origins Modern Friction™ Nature s Gentle Dermabrasion:

      If you have sensitive skin, but need to lightly resurface your skin, this is an amazing product. The grit is very fine and the product is gentle on your skin as advertised. This has become a skincare staple of mine over the years and it hasn't changed. Great Formula, please don't ever retire it!
