I love this scrub! This is the only scrub which doesn't make my acne-prone skin break out - it's totally worth it.

I'm almost finishing up my second tube of this and I love it! I have sensitive oily acne prone skin with lots of hyperpigmentation and this really helps smoothen out my skin. It feels a little harsh if you only have a thin layer..you're recommended to put a thick layer on..and that's the downside..it's not cheap! would repurchase though

Used alone, this was too harsh for me. but I've since found a use for it - mixed in with Origins Never A Dull Moment face polish, it gives me a gentle yet effective scrub and doesn't irritate my sensitive skin. Word of caution though, be careful not to get any of this product in your eyes, it stings real bad!

SUPER gentle exfoliant. The "exfoliating" particles in this are random and scarce. It lathers rather nicely, it smells pleasant too, and it softens the face, but if you have very dry patches of skin and you're looking for real exfolation and 'dermabrasion', this might not make the cut for you.

Love this! Non-irritating even for sensitive skin, and contains large coarse beads which effortlessly take away dead skin. This exfoliant gets the job done and the tube lasts forever, is hygienic and mess free.

I really like this exfoliator, I usually wash my face and remove all makeup and then dry it off with a towel. I like using this product when my face is semi-dry and really work it into my skin (I don't have sensitive skin and I do have a few dry patches/dry T-zone) so I need to remove all of the dead skin. Anyway, once the product is worked in I add water a little at a time, this helps turn it into a milky consistency and I exfoiate for a few more minutes after that.

The results after are great! my skin feels amazingly soft and clean and then I put Origins Clear improvement, Drink up intensive or Aesops Parsley seed mask depending on how my skin is doing and what I need. I really enjoy this product and it's definitely a part of my face routine.

I think this is a nice exfoliator. Probably one of my favorites, in fact. It's a viscous pasty sort of texture. It's so thick it's kind of hard to squeeze out of the tube. The scrubbing granules aren't super fine or grainy, they're right somewhere in between and as you scrub they seem to almost disappear. This scrub leaves the skin smooth and even, helping scrub off dry flakes without being drying. It's not as good as my favorite scrub, the Aveeno Skin Brightening Scrub, but it's definitely very effective. I use this two times a week, as I think any more would be too much for my skin but I can see people with less sensitive skin or oilier skin using it more often. I do have one issue though. Sometimes it stings like heck on the skin and if you get it in the eye, it burns like heck! But all in all, I say this is a great scrub and I recommend it.

Surprisingly this does feel like you had dermabrasion without any of the pain. This scrub goes on your face like a soft gummy cream. The large chunks don't bother me because they're more like soft rounded eraser bits that rub all over your face. Add more water as needed to build up a better lather and the chunks will disappear. After you're done, your face will be noticeably brighter, smoother, and everything you put on afterwards will feel more tingly, like your pores are wide open and everything you put on is just sinking into your face. I wouldn't use this more than twice a week though because it does feel like you just gently stripped off a layer of your skin afterwards. But if you're looking for an effective exfoliator, this one is pretty good. I just want to note that I have very dry sensitive skin and I've had no bad reactions to this scrub.

The first time I bought modern friction was when it was still in the round plastic jars. They now come in the tubes but I feel like there are less beads in the new packaging. I tried Boots' micro derm abrasion but found it to be too rough and scratchy for my face. I have combination skin and l like how mild Modern Friction feels on my skin. My complexion seems to brighten up a bit after I use this. Exfoliating is great for your skin but too much can be bad for it so I only use use this about once every 2 weeks. This is ok as the price has gone up since I first started using it.
