I usually sleep with 2-3 pillows. I think it feels terrible to sleep with just one! Anyone else feel that way, as well? I’ve been sleeping this way for years and years (as long as I can remember, actually). I’ve always thought that it was a more comfortable way to sleep, and so I have resisted changing that.
But Tim believes it is one of the reasons that my neck always hurts. I chalk my neck pain up to just getting older. But if I really think about it, I’ve had neck pain for probably 5 years or so. Hmmm….
In addition to my neck pain, I sometimes deal with getting hot while sleeping. We use down comforters, which are SOOO comfortable. But here in the South, temperatures can fluctuate and it can get warm at the drop of a hat. For example, last weekend a warm front came through and we had 2 days where temperatures were in the 70s.
But guess what? I slept like a baby rather than waking up sweating and hot. It’s all because of a new pillow I’m using (just one pillow, not three!). And you guys. I am in love. Big time. As in, I want to marry this pillow.
Comfort Revolution has a Hydraluxe Cooling Bed Pillow that combines memory foam and a refreshing gel layer that helps keep your head and neck nice and cool. If you ever deal with night sweats, this pillow will make them ancient history!
I’ve never slept on any sort of memory foam before. Basically the pillow cradles your head to give you great support. It feels nothing short of amazing. And as for the cooling gel, I was actually worried that it would feel uncomfortable this time of year. Would it leave me feeling cold? Because I don’t want to feel cold at night! But no, that was not my experience at all. It felt nice and cool, but not cold. It made me feel very relaxed and comfortable.
Tim also really likes the pillow. I usually wake up a few hours before him every day to start my work day. I have noticed that he makes use of my new Comfort Revolution pillow between my wake up time and his wake up time. Honestly, I don’t blame him Just look at the difference between our two pillows! His pillow is lumpy and the cotton inside isn’t evenly distributed.
The Hydraluxe Pillow by Comfort Revolution is a bit of an investment, costing $79.99 for a standard pillow (though it is currently on mega sale for $43 on Amazon! Eee!). I’m not one to spend a lot of money on much of anything. But after sleeping on this pillow for a week, I can say with confidence that I will NEVER be going back to cheap, crappy pillows. I have already put my old pillows in a donation pile and I am going to save up to get another one of these pillows for Tim. He deserves to get as good of a night’s sleep as I am currently getting.
Did I mention that my neck pain is greatly reduced? I don’t think 5 years of neck pain will disappear overnight, but I have noticed a significant improvement, which makes me SOOO happy!
I also think this would be a great pillow for anyone who lives in warmer climates. My in-laws live in the desert in Southern California. They should most definitely have this pillow. I actually think they should consider getting the Gel Pad for the entire bed. What an amazing difference that would make for sleep when the temperature is consistently in the 90s or higher, even at night!
I highly HIGHLY recommend this pillow for anyone who has trouble being comfortable at night, either due to being hot at night or due to having terrible pillows. It makes such a huge difference in how you feel throughout the day if you have had a great night of sleep. Between Layah starting to sleep through the night and replacing my pillow heap with this one, I feel like a different person.
