When you go 3-D, every line and wrinkle has depth, so why not fill that in a bit for smoother skin? Needles and fillers can be daunting (not to mention expensive!) so the BIZ was definitely up for trying the dr. Brandt® Needles No More 3-D Filler Mask ($95). The tag line for this mask is “Don’t let gravity be your destiny” and we are all for fighting gravity!! We were also particularly interested in the terrific dr. Brandt® #plumpupthevolume campaign, which fosters a national dialogue concerning issues of mental health and well-being and provides insight and support to individuals and families affected by mood disorders.
On top of all that, we have a fantastic giveaway for 3 subscribers!
Lisa’s Side: dr. Brandt® Needles No More 3-D Filler Mask is a lovely leave on mask that has some great ingredients, including hyaluronic acid, peptides and something called Adipofill’in™ Complex. This creamy mask comes with a really nice synthetic application brush that I now use with all of my masks – it’s really terrific. Some nights I look in the mirror and I think, wow, gravity is definitely taking a toll…so I smooth on this mask and then leave it on overnight. It makes my skin feel a little tighter thanks to the polymethyl methacrylate (which is a film-forming agent) and immediately makes my wrinkles less noticeable. The shea butter is definitely soothing as well. In the morning, my skin is smoother, plumped, and younger looking.
It does have a very light fragrance due to the lavender extract, but it’s soft and dissipates quickly. I use the dr. Brandt® Needles No More 3-D Filler Mask once a week to make me feel pampered and plumped…and to make living in 3-D a whole lot more pleasant! (Be sure to check out the #FACEFWD Fall Issue for more great dr. Brandt® news).
While dr. Brandt® Needles No More 3-D Filler Mask is called a mask, it’s nothing like the masks that I normally write about. This is more of a treatment than a mask. I have a sample size of it, the same that 3 people will win, and I use it nightly. This has become an integral part of my nightime routine. The goal of dr. Brandt® Needles No More 3-D Filler Mask is to revolumize, reshape and fill.
The deluxe sample size doesn’t come with the brush or the 3-D glasses but it comes with all the wonderful ingredients that make this treatment a success. I apply it with my fingers, starting at my chin and moving upwards. It’s recommended to then pat more onto areas with fine lines and wrinkles. I leave this on for a minimum of 15 minutes (longer is better) before I apply my moisturizer/night cream.
This creamy mask adds extra moisture to my skin and works while I’m asleep. The fragrance is only noticeable when I first apply it but then within seconds it dissipates. I’ve got a fussy nose and there is nothing to bother it or keep me awake. I’m thrilled to have discovered this tool to help me #plumpupthevolume.
THE DR. BRANDT FOUNDATION
After Dr. Brandt passed away the brand wanted to preserve the legacy he created. There is now The Dr. Brandt Foundation, a nonprofit organization established in partnership with The Miami Foundation. The Foundation’s first campaign, #plumpupthevolume, has been created to foster a national dialogue concerning issues of mental health and well-being, and provide insight and support to individuals affected by mood disorders, and their families.
The sad news is that one person dies by suicide in the U.S. every 13 minutes leading to more than 40,000 deaths a year. The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP) focuses on promoting awareness, prevention, understanding and hope to reverse this upward trend. To save lives the Dr. Brandt Foundation will aid its efforts in research, education and advocacy. In keeping with the long-held interests of Dr. Brandt, the Foundation will also provide support in the following areas: organizations that work with young artists to enhance their skills and passion for the arts, research of skin diseases, and the Humane Society.
JOIN IN THE FIGHT! Take part in the dr. Brandt® #plumpupthevolume campaign that will began on January 8th, 2016. This nationwide movement is a call-to-action platform that invites Instagrammers everywhere to share their enthusiasm for life and positive thoughts that can motivate others.
IT’S EASY TO JOIN: Take a photo or video of yourself holding a sign that reads “#plumpupthevolume”, tag or follow @drbrandt and post it on Instagram using the same hashtag. Then challenge friends and followers to do the same. For every person that accepts your challenge, dr. brandt skincare® will donate $1 dollar to the Dr. Brandt Foundation. The hashtag #plumpupthevolume calls on all Americans to ‘turn up the volume’ on issues around emotional health and well-being, and sheds new light on their causes, effects and treatments — offering both hope and help to those in need.
