"Modern Friction" vs "Buffy Body Butter"

Recently I was in Origins picking up my usual skin care products.  The lady that helped me was like a regional director or something so I asked her what type of body scrub she would suggest for shower use to exfoliate the skin.  She suggested "Modern Friction for the Body".  Now you know how much I love Origins skin care products and you know how much I love Lush Cosmetics body products soooooo I put it to the test.  I used the "Modern Friction for the Body" twice a week for 2 weeks to see if I would like it and if I noticed a difference in my skin.

Here's what I liked:
- Not a heavy fragrance
- Exfoliated the skin
- I only needed a small amount and the size of the tube is large (6.7 oz)

Here's what I didn't like:
- $35.00
- Left my skin feeling dry
- The exfoliation beads were everywhere and hard to rinse away

Compared to my Lush Cosmetics "Buffy Body Butter"
Here is what I Liked:
- Not a heavy fragrance
- Exfoliated the skin
- The bar is easy to use and doesn't require a wash cloth
- Moisturizes the skin
- Easy to rinse off
- $11.95/small bar $22/large bar

Here is what I didn't like:
- Leaves the shower/tub slipper
- Leaves the shower/tub with a greasy film
- I only get about 3-4 uses out of the small bar

In the end I will stick with my "Buffy Body Butter" just because I like the way my skin feels after using it and I love it more than I do the "Modern Friction for the Body".
