Lately it has been many sleepless nights for me thanks to a not so great pillow. I often deal with neck pain and migraines, at times the migraines are so severe that no matter what I do I can’t get comfortable and my pillow seems to make it worse than offer comfort. I decided to seek out the perfect pillow for me, I know that there must be one out there that is just right and will help me get some much needed rest. I spend many hours at night tossing and turning, flipping my pillow this way and that only for it to be uncomfortable, flat, unsupportive and just no good. I need to find something that offers good support of my neck and head, something that is comfortable without being too firm or too soft, something that will help me sleep and help when I have a horrible migraine.
I have purchased many new pillows, pillows that once were a favorite that are now too firm, pillows that friends highly recommend that end up tossed in the floor as I reach for my usual one, pillows that just don’t work at all and make me feel frustrated at ever finding one and getting some rest. I was delighted when given the opportunity to review a couple of pillows from SmartSilk.
The SmartSilk Pillow offers you a delightful sleeping experience with our luxurious blend of all natural and luxurious material. We begin with the cozy silk-filled liner that smoothly borders the entire pillow. The all-natural soft cotton outer shell then encases our unique all natural polyester micro gel fiber filling providing you with a very comfy combination for a relaxing night’s sleep.
In addition, The SmartSilk Shield Advantage offers you a proven barrier against allergens, dust mites and pet dander that live on most down and synthetic pillows. The SmartSilk Pillow has been certified asthma & allergy friendly, ensuring you a cleaner and uninterrupted sleep each night.
I was thrilled to find out about the SmartSilk Shield Advantage; with both Abby and myself suffering from allergies it was especially nice to discover pillows that are certified asthma and allergy friendly! A huge plus is that SmartSilk not only offers pillows but also mattress pads, duvet/comforters, complete bedding sets and even crib bedding!
The day they arrived I was a big shocked at the size of the box, there was no way two pillows were in that package! Inside I found two pillows tightly sealed up. I quickly opened them as they immediately started to fluff and form into very comfy looking pillows! Abby took an immediate liking to them and ran off with one to lounge in the floor. I decided hubby and I both would try one out since SmartSilk so generously sent two pillows for my review.
While the SmartSilk Pillows are indeed soft and comfortable, it is unfortunately not the pillow for me. When I tried to sleep with it, the pillow just didn’t feel comfortable to me. It didn’t offer the support I prefer and need and I just could not get comfortable with it. However, although it wasn’t right for me, hubby actually sleep well with his and informed me he liked the pillow. Abby of course approves and has actually fallen asleep on mine numerous times. This pillow is just right for her! Since I do like how soft it is, I decided to give it another try. This time as the pillow I curl up to and hug. My arms tend to cramp and spaz at times and I like to have a pillow to hold. I blame this “comfort” from when I was pregnant and become use to curling up with my body pillow. The SmartSilk pillow was just perfect to curl up with! It was just right to hold and half lay on without getting in the way and definitely very comfortable. Although it didn’t turn out to be the pillow I was searching for to replace mine, it did turn out to be a great pillow for everyone in my family! I definitely would recommend the SmartSilk Pillow, especially to those that do suffer from allergies and asthma. It’s a great pillow and worth trying out.
*since I first wrote this blog post, the SmartSilk Pillow has become Abby’s bed pillow. She was finally ready for her “big girl” pillow and since she loved the SmartSilk one so much and since it’s so allergy and asthma friendly I couldn’t think of a better pillow for her. She has slept better since getting her pillow, she has even claimed the second one for when she wants to lounge on the couch. Looks like the SmartSilk pillow is the perfect pillow for her!
