Origins scrub

I recently tested a sample of Modern Friction, Natures Gentle Dermabrasion from Origins Origins Modern Friction Scrub Review. This is an interesting scrub that would likely work well for people who want a milder scrub. I normally use Loreal Refinish microdermabrasion scrub once or twice each week. That works fine for me, but I imagine it could be a bit harsh on sensitive skin. The Origins product is much milder. In fact it is likely too mild for my tastes, although it works just fine. I just like to feel like I have done some serious exfoliation.
The scrub has a wonderful mint scent, assuming that one likes mint. If you are not a mint lover, this product probably isn’t for you. It provides a mild and fairly smooth exfoliation. My skin felt soft after using it, and not irritated in any manner. My one complaint about it is that without adding a bit of water, it goes on feeling fairly pasty and does not spread well across the skin. But adding water makes it lather quite a bit, so if more than just a tad is added, it lathers so much that it does not feel like it is scrubbing well. So a word of warning with this product: Use just a bit of water on your skin to scrub and add more to lather it up before washing it off.

  1. I’m wondering if they added mint to this to give the illusion of cleaning and exfoliation more than it really does. That’s a big reason why they use mostly mint in toothpaste rather than other flavors. That’s a big reason for sudsing agents as well.

    Just wondering – how are you liking Olay’s Definity by now? I’m using Neutrogena’s microdermabrasion system and Definity right now.

  2. Kylee: It could be. Origins also has a whole mint skin care line. I will have to write something up on Definity. I am actually planning a series on melasma treatment, so it fits with that. But I will write up a mini review of it.
