When I was initially asked to review the Silk Perfect pillow case, I was a little dubious if the truth be known. Lets be honest, who doesnt want the luxury of sleeping on a silk pillowcase but the sales "blurb" seemed a little too good to be true. Here is a little extract for you ...
"The skin tends to become more sensitive during pregnancy, not only due to higher hormone levels, but because it has become more stretched and delicate.This feeling of sensitivity can leave mums to be feeling uncomfortable making sleep difficult.
Like a glass of water for your skin, you will wake feeling cooled, revived and regenerated ready to take on the challenges of pregnancy!
SilkPerfect Luxury Silk Pillowcases are expertly designed to improve your quality of sleep. By dramatically cooling the face throughout the night SilkPerfect helps to regulate your temperature allowing you to relax and fall asleep more easily"
I love my sleep (who doesnt) and with claims of being able to wake up without a "bed head", I needed to try this product. So after the sample arrived, I couldnt wait to put it on my pillow and go to bed (I dont need much of an excuse to go to sleep these days). My other half was a little perturbed that he didnt have one to trial but this did not stop me from kissing him goodnight and snuggling into the cool pillowcase.
The moment I awoke, I jumped out of bed to look in the mirror (well as fast as my pregnant body would allow) and I have to admit that I looked a little less like Maculey Culkin from Home Alone and more like me! Its a running joke in our house that I wake up with my hair sticking out in all directions but after sleeping on the pillow, I was surprisingly "normal" looking!!
The next evening was particularly warm and I had thrown the covers off (and onto my long suffering other half) but despite the heat, my head was genuinely cooler. In addition to this, due to my(alledged and unproven) incessant snoring I am usually propped up on a number of pillows but the cotton back of the Silk Pillow prevented it from slipping down.
I feel like I want to update you on the new benefits I find with the pillow each day but I suspect that the best way for you to find out, is to try it. Like me, you maybe more than pleasantly surprised!!
