Modern Friction by Origins

I haven't use an exfoliating scrub in years, I rely on my Paula's Choice BHA which provides a daily gentle exfoliation.

I received this product as a christmas present from a dear friend of mine and know that this is a bestseller for Origins and have won quite a few reader awards.

On the Origins website, this is described as more of a buffing paste than a scrub. It had the following description:

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. 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 lines and size of pores appear to shrink. Skin looks perfectly polished, smooth and luminous. And the perk-me-up aromas of Bergamot and Peppermint help you look on the bright side.

My first impression when I open the jar was the creaminess of the scrub and the rice starch being really fine. This was good as a scrub need to have really tiny particles so that it isn't too harsh on the skin.

After using it, I think it is a good product. The creaminess was really like a paste and allows you to massage the rice starch beads into the skin without hurting it. I find my skin looking a lot smoother and luminous.

Yummy stuff for the skin.

Luv ~ Very creamy so that it can be massaged into the skin gently causing less harm to the skin. The rice starch was really tiny beads giving a gentle exfoliation and lemon oil helps to brighten the skin up.
Don't Luv ~ No
