Reader Review of the Day: Origins Modern Friction

If you like the effects of microdermabrasion, but you want something gentler than crystals, this could be the item for you. Origins Modern Friction dermabrasion scrub ($37) uses rice starch to scrub away dead skin. Reader smoy1004 digs the smell, but wishes it were less pricey.

An Origins sales girl suckered me into purchasing this, but I can't say that it was a bad purchase! It smells soft and wonderful. Although I don't agree that it makes your skin look like porcelain, it does do a great job of gently exfoliating your face. Product also lasts a long time. I have combination skin with mild acne, and this product doesn't exacerbate the situation . . . even if it doesn't help it. I take one star away for hefty price tag and not doing much for my perpetually clogged pores.

I have tried a TON of at-home microderm products and this is one of my favorites. Super gentle and would be great for all skin types. Relatively speaking, the price is great - it lasts forever because you should only be using it 1-2x per week. A more powerful, but abrasive alternative: Philosophy The Microdelivery Peel ($60).
