Review | Origins Modern Friction

What They Say | "Sand-blasting skin with coarse, chemical crystals? How painfully passe. Here's age-smoothing exfoliation without irritation. Skin-refining Rice Starch cushioned in cream, rapidly removes sluggish cells, uneven patches and signs of skin damage and discolourations. Lemon Oil kick starts the process of illumination. Vitamin C mops up skin-menacing free radicals.
There's no ouch, extra steps or other complications. No redness or flaking follows. Signs of lines and size of pores appear to shrink. With Origins Modern Friction™, skin looks perfectly polished, smooth and luminous."

What I Say | This is a sample size product I received with a previous order. It's a 15ml tube, which is the perfect size to try before you buy. I'm always a bit wary trying new skin products so these little samples are perfect for me!
I squeeze a small amount onto my fingers and gently massage it all over my face. I then rinse it off with warm water and I'm left with lovely smooth, clean feeling skin. You can apply this to dry skin but I prefer dampening my face first as I feel it applies better.
Modern Friction is a microdermabrasion exfoliator that's very thick and creamy in texture. It contains rice starch to refine the skin and lemon oil to brightenIt contains tiny beads for exfoliating and gives just enough scrub without being too harsh on the skin but at the same time it definitely feels like it's working at getting rid of all the dirt and grime. I use this once, sometimes twice a week and I have noticed a difference in my skin. It is quite pricey but as you only need a small amount at one time, I think you can justify it. 
I would say this product is suitable for all skin types as it's quite gentle and isn't drying.
If you're a blonde like me, be very careful when using it around your eye area. I know it says it on the majority of face products but this product burns like crazy if you get it near or around your eyes! Don't say I didn't warn you ;).
Oh and this is also one of Origins best sellers!
