I used this for the first time yesterday and am very pleased so far. I have purchased (and returned) both the Personal Microderm and Nubrilliance systems and find this far superior.

The Personal Microderm system uses abrasive discs and suction - while I do think it's effective, it's also potentially more damaging and seems less safe for home use. If you stay on one spot too long, you could literally create an open and raw area. While all machines of this type pose some risk of irritation, it's far harder to control the results with the Personal Microdermabrasion system than Timepeel, in my opinion.

Nubrilliance has a similar idea to Timepeel, but Timepeel executed it better. The main difference is the tip - Timepeel supplies just one, but it can be used all over the face. Nubrilliance provides 3 tips - one for the face/larger areas in both medium and coarse grits, and a small tip meant for the nose and other small areas. Be warned - the small tip does not create enough suction to work properly - it is a design flaw.

Back to Timepeel. The one tip they supply works for the whole face and provides good suction everywhere. The filter assembly makes more sense than the one on Nubrilliance and the suction is so effective, it actually removed blackheads - I was astonished at the results in my nose area.

As with all machines of this type, will get better results over time, but I do believe I see a difference after just one treatment.

Lastly, I must remark on one of the other reviewer's comments - at twice a week usage (the maximum they recommend), they enclose enough filters for months of use so I don't know where the $100 per month figure is coming from for supplies. The tip will eventually need to be replaced, and new filters purchased, but I think that cost estimate is way off. Bottom line, I think this is the best machine of its type, In this price range, on the market.

I like the machine, but you should understand it does turn out to be quite expensive. Read the fine print ~ it will cost $100 every 3 months to replace the filters and ~ AHEM ~ so-called "diamond tip". Diamond dust? MAYBE. Anyway ~ it works fine. I use it every day and do notice a little ~ No, not a magical , fabulous, miraculous improvement ~ just a little one. Have been using this every day for the past month on the lowest setting, and I think I see a little improvement. Perhaps the lowest setting is too low, though ~ think I'll increase it. Please don't expect this to take care of your scars, deep wrinkles or sun-damaged areas. Nonsense. This is a tube with a rough edge and a little suction. Get real with that. It can exfoliate. Nothing more. You will not "lose years" off your face. I like it, and I use it, but would not have bought it if I had known how little it actually does and how much it was going to cost me every 3 months for replacement materials.

THIS IS THE FIRST DIAMOND MICRODERMABRASION HOME MACHINE! The company that makes "Derma Princess" should be sued for lying to all potential buyers, including on their youtube video because theirs is NOT the first Diamond Microdermabrasion Home Machine. "TIMEPEEL" is the one and the very first to be invented and brought out onto the market. Timepeel has also had years of research put into it and the company that makes Timepeel already cater for the professional salons in this field so they know exactly what is what and how safe to make it etc. You can seriously damage and scar your skin with microdermabrasion so I wouldnt touch any other copies with a barge pole! I have researched thoroughly into all these various machines, gadgets and creams. For god's sake do not use Derma Princess, or the CrystalLift one either as its highly toxic with its oxide alluminium crystals and the same goes for all the creams - highly toxic. I have been using Timepeel and it is extremely effective, just as effective as salon treatments, in fact even more so in my opinion because it is far less evasive (therefore you can use it more often if desired) yet still just as effective, plus you are in complete control and it takes hardly any time to do it at all. In fact less time than in a salon! Plus less time of the before and after care procedure. I had so much sunbed/sun damage and lines and deep wrinkles from stress and traumas and Im not kidding in just one quick session of my Timepeel I lost years off my face, plus a small keloid scar from a blackhead almost went completely just from the 1st time! Forget any other copies or remake gadgets. Never go with someone who lies for a start. Stick with Timepeel and go to their website first if you dont believe me and see what they have to say. Look at the reviews on Google. I would also shop around price-wise. Timepeel's official website may have it cheaper and one of their deals on. As we are on such a topic, I highly recommend the Safetox in addition to this, though I would choose Timepeel as priority without a doubt. Then with regards to creams etc for gods sake dont de-age yourself by putting chemicals on, especially after using microdermabrasion (or any other time) which all mainstream products are made from including all the expensive designer ones. Even some Organic ones are laced with chemicals. The purest is Raw Gaia ([...]) - their products are completely raw, vegan, organic and absolutely amazing. Very reasonably priced and my god it all lasts a very long time so great value for your money. Lastly, I highly recommend Natalia Rose's book "Detox For Women" - the title does it insufficient justice in a way as you will never go hungry, it is catered for meat eaters, vegetarians and vegans and really de-ages you amongst rapid weightloss, mood balance, good sleep etc. Plus she has a strong emphasis on cooked as well as raw food. She is at the absolute forefront of the science of nutrition etc and is always keeping ahead with it all. I even had Colonics the other day and found she was great but her nutritional advice was dangerously from the dark ages from when she did her training some years ago so thank god for Natalia Rose's book and info on everything, really. This book should be every woman's bible! You cannot rely on just a machine and a good skincare product. It has to be all 3 creating the ultimate perfect synergy! So back to the machine bit? Stay safe and go with Timepeel. Love and light to you all x

What more can I say; they shipped me a device that was not put together well and arrived broken. The manufacturer promised full return of product and failed to deliver. Amazon did allow me to return the machine. Too much money, too flimsy of a machine, and poor poor quality.

The Timepeel worked very well for about a dozen uses. The suction then stopped working well. I am so mad that such an expensive machine doesn't work well! I don't know how this can be fixed. I see that this is a common problem with other Timepeel users. In that case, it is a big ripoff and waste of my hard-earned money. Don't bother...

I got this machine few day back through Amazon. It is not worth the price. There was no manual inside and all labels were in Chinese. Did not notice any change after first use. Honestly it is not worth even $50/-. Big rip off.

I was very disappointed in this $315 item. It was cheaply made and the documentation is a xeroxed piece of paper that you can hardly read without a magnifying glass. Written by someone who does not know English very well. I gave myself one treatment, and it was not even close to the microdermabrasion you get in a salon. I have returned it and will try the NuBrilliance. This is the first time I have relied on Amazon reviewers and found them to be misleading, IMHO. The seller has issued a credit quickiy through Amazon and I didn't have to pay for return shipping. That's why I gave it 2 stars instead of just 1.

Would have given it 5 stars if I didn't find out (as I went to write review) that it is about $60.00 cheaper by another distributer on Amazon. I like they way it works, but it is obviously over priced by these guys.

I have been using timepeel for last two months. Before purchasing the product I read some reviews about timepeel. Many of the people using timepeel use it daily, but it's not something that should be used daily. Infact, in the very booklet itself, it's clearly mentioned that although timepeel can be used once or twice a week, people with sensitive skin should use it once in 2-3 weeks. I don't have sensitive skin but still I use it once in 2-3 weeks because excessive microdermabrasion may result in thickening the texture of the skin. Peeling effect works best when peeling is followed by proper facial massage with moisturisers. Same is true for this product also. It smoothens the fine lines and all, but please don't expect a miraculous effect. If you use the product according to the guidelines shown in the instruction manual, I think it will be safer. Personally, I like it because the dead skins when removed brings about a shine in the face. I used to do facial in the parlour once a month and now I do it at home, thanks to timepeel.
