Lashing out with codeai eyelash regeneration

A lifetime of an eyelash hair is just 150-200 days, then it comes out. I also learned that mascaras, make-up removers, eyelash extensions and eyelash curlers (I like to call it the eyelash guillotine) are daily aggressors and can harm your lashes. So, I decided to try a new product called code.ai (www.codeai.com) for two weeks to make my lashes longer, stronger, thicker and more beautiful, since they claim you can start to see results in just two weeks. You do not need a prescription or have to buy it from a medical aesthetician like you have to do with Latisse.

First, I tried to take a picture of my lashes for a before shot like in the weight loss ads, but it wasn't very easy to do. I ended up having to take it through the mirror. Then, I learned to use the "macro" setting on my camera, which made a big difference in picking up the detail of my lashes. My lashes are decent to begin with, I don't have extremely long lashes, but they are fairly nice, especially when I make them darker with mascara.

Anyway, to apply code.ai it's like putting on eyeliner. First you dip the brush applicator in the tube filled with clear liquid, start at the corner of your eye and sweep it across to the outer corner, glazing the base of your lashes. As directed on the box, I did this almost every morning and evening to my upper and lower lashes. I liked that it claims to be non-irritating and infact I did NOT experience any irritation, burning or harmful side effects. My lashes just felt wet on for a bit of time after applying. I managed to get a decent gob into my actual eyeball once due to accidently moving my head abrumptly, which just made my eyes water, but thankfully it didn't hurt.

The first week I thought I saw a difference, but I wasn't sure if that was because I was actually paying attention to my lashes for a change. By the second week though, I definitely noticed that my lashes were indeed thicker and a little longer. I especially saw a difference on my bottom lashes, which seemed to really take off under the use of code.ai. Normally, I never noticed my bottom lashes, but now you can (photo below does not do them justice). I was afraid that my lashes might feel plastic-like or strange after using the serum, but they did not feel any different than normal.

Here are some of my attempted before and after shots (with no mascara on) of my experience:

Apparently, code.ai works by using lipo-peptides to boost a cell's natural productivity levels to promote natural, healthy growth. Luckily, their lash extend serum ($115) and brow boosting shaper ($75) have the most peptides on the market. Also, according to their materials code.ai's proprietary Myriplex formula stimulates cell replication and drops 20 years off a lash cell's age. Thus, I now have child eyelashes, lol ;)

I would have liked to of tried code.ai last year before my wedding along with when I did Crest white strips and got a facial three weeks before the big date. I'm still going to continue beyond my initial two week test and recommend it to any brides. For more eyelash and brow beauty tips you can follow @code_ai on twitter!

  2. I have been using code.ai for 4 weeks and for the first time in my over waxed, over plucked eyebrow world I am seeing new growth. My lashes are longer, thicker and fuller now too. Product is amazing...everyone should have code.ai in their daily routine.

  3. I read somewhere that the extra growth results in darker hair right at the lash line? Or something like that? Did you notice any side effects? I have wimpy eyelashes and have been so tempted.

  4. Wandering Chopsticks - no nothing. I was nervous too, but as i said they look and feel the same, just thicker and longer. Plus, code.ai is "Hypoallergenic" according to their site.

  6. I have been using codeai for the past couple of months. I am 70 and my eyelashes were skimpy at best. I am thrilled with the results. My skimpy lashes are fuller, longer and thicker. Friends are noticing and I am telling them it is totally codeai. I love the product and will continue to pass the word.

  7. I have been using Code.ai for the past several months. I love it! My eyelashes are longer than they have ever been and I dont have to put on as much mascara. I also really love the eyelash primer that they make. It comes in a tinted brown color, so it really makes your lashes visible and when you apply the mascara on top-WOW! your eyes and lashes are gorgeous! A definate winner!

  9. I have been using code.ai for the last several weeks and I have definitely noticed a difference in my lashes and brows! My brow waxing technician asked me what I was doing because my brows were starting to fill in toward the ends of my brows and were darker.
    My lashes are really thick right now as well! I would recommend & it last a long time. NO redness or burning either like others.
