Review: Origins Modern Friction

This is the best exfoliator ever! I have been using this Modern Friction 
since Origins launched this product, about 6-7 years ago! During these years
I also tried other exfoliators/face scrubs from other brands, but I always 
come back to Origins' Modern Friction! It's the best!

4.2 oz/125 ml $37.50

When this product was first introduced, it was in a jar container which I 
did not like at all. Thankfully they changed the package to a tube!  

The ingredients used in this product are very natural and gentle, 
which is great for my thin, dry and sensitive skin. Unlike other
facial scrubs that use chemical crystals/beads, Origins Modern Friction 
is very gentle as it uses very sticky rice starch which helps to remove
dead skin that cause dullness. It also has a very fresh yet gentle peppermint
smell that is very relaxing.

As most people know about Origins, their products are formulated with 
natural and certified organic ingredients and 100% natural essential oils. 
More importantly, Origins products are formulated WITHOUT parabens, 
phthalates, propylene glycol, mineral oil, PABA, petrolatum, paraffin, 
DEA, and animal ingredients. (source from

Key ingredients:
 Rice Starch: This ancient Japanese beauty secret 
has the power to lift skin-dulling debris.

Lemon Oil: A purifier and aromatic essential oil, it kick-starts the 
exfoliation process and provides antioxidant properties. 

Vitamin C

Aloe: Known as "nature's first aid kit," it hydrates, 
softens, soothes, and nourishes the skin. 

Peppermint: Provides cooling and relaxing effects on the skin.

How to use: 2-3 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. Follow with appropriate tonic. (

Depends on my skin condition, normally I use this 1-2 times a week.
As this may sounds pricey, 4,2oz/125ml for $37.50, but you only need a tiny 
amount each time you use, a little goes a long way. This tube last for super 
long, 9-12 months depends on how often you use it.

Natural ingredients are great as we don't want to feed our skin with chemicals,
but what this product really sells me is it's gentleness as well as the radiant, 
luminous and brighten skin after using it! Seriously, it's that amazing. My skin
was so smooth, soft and luminous after just one use, and it did not give me 
that dry face feeling at all, love it!

DISCLAIMER: I paid for this product with my own money. I am not being paid or endorsed by any company for the products used/shown/mentioned. All thoughts expressed are my honest opinion.
