Origins Modern Friction, 4oz/125mL
Recently, I started to pay more attention to the organic skincare because of the formulation without parabens. After doing some research, I have my eyes on Origins skincare.
Here is the first product review from Origins skincare line.
How to use: Two to three times a week, scoop onto fingertips and massage over dry, clean skin in circular motions. For sensitive skin, massage over damp skin. Add a splash of water and work into a gentle lather. Rinse well. Follow with appropriate tonic.
I found that it's a very good exfoliator. After use, my skin becomes so smooth, radiant and soft!! The sales representative showed me a tip: Leave the scrub over the skin for few minutes before massaging over the skin would provide better results. PLEASE remember that DO NOT LET THE SCRUB LEAVE ON THE SKIN FOR TOO LONG. I found that this formulation is quite concentrated. I can feel the burning sensation after leaving the scrub on skin for few minutes. For sensitive skin, I recommend that you massage over damp skin without leaving on the skin. The results are outstanding.
Modern Friction™ claims to deliver all the amazing age-erasing benefits of dermabrasion such as:
* Improving texture and reducing fine lines
Comment: I don't have fine lines on my face, so I can't comment on the impact on the fine line. The texture of the skin is definitely improved in terms of radiant, smoothness
* Minimizing signs of photo-damage
(seems to brighten up my skin and fades the freckles)
* Evening out skin tone
(yes, even the skin tone)
* Restoring your skin with a youthful glow
(yes, brightens up the skin) I found that the first use of Modern Friction already provides better results than the Shiseido brightening cleanser, toner and emulsion that I used previously.)
Moisturizing mask (or very moisturizing cream)to be used afterward is highly recommended because this scrub tends to dry out the skin a bit.
