Origins Modern Friction Review

Over the Easter holidays I had a bit of a disaster with my Picasa Web Albums and somehow managed to delete all the photos off my blog from the beginning of March all the way back to when my blog started in November! I'm absolutely gutted and really annoyed at myself but working hard to get lots of new posts up to fill the blank spaces! Onwards and upwards.

Origins Modern Friction

Back in January I was invited for a free facial at the Origins counter in House of Fraser and since then I have fallen in love with their products! The Modern Friction scrub became a favourite but at the time I was trying to save money so bought the Perfect World cleanser instead. Luckily for me the lovely people over at Origins Head Office sent me Modern Friction as a thank you for posting about my facial - I thought this was a lovely gesture as many companies don't often send out thank you's and I wasn't expecting it at all!

Origins Modern Friction

Modern Friction is a gentle dermabrasion scrub that gets rid of dead skin cells and smooths out the skin to leave it luminous! As with all Origins products the ingredients are 100% natural - this one is made with rice starch to refine the skin and lemon oil to brighten. I absolutely love this face scrub. I used to use a scrub on my face daily but realised it was much too harsh so now use a gentle cleanser and this exfoliant once or twice a week and I've noticed a real difference in my skin. My skin is so much softer after using it, pores are reduced and I look fresh and awake!

The scrub has quite a thick texture, more like a paste than a gel. You just massage a small amount over dry skin (or if you have sensitive skin dampen your face first or else it can be a little harsh) then splash a little water on your face and it transforms into a creamy lather. I imagine this to be similar to the Dermalogica Microfoliant if anyone has tried that.

I can't recommend this enough to anyone! A 125ml bottle costs £31 from House of Fraser - at first I was a little put off by the price but I can say that it is definitely worth it. As with all high quality products a little goes a long way and you really don't need to use a lot of it, a small amount covers your whole face. And I only use this weekly so used as a treat every now and then a bottle will last you a long time.

Have you tried Origins products? What do you think of them?
