I had a friend once who’s favorite saying was, “Cooler than the other side of the pillow”. Anyone who’s woke to flip their pillow in the middle of the night can understand the sentiment. Living in 30+ year old New England house with no central a/c I find myself doing just that every summer. When I was told there is a pillow that will stay cool all night, it was hard to believe. But I was pleasantly surprised.
A revolution in cool, the Hydraluxe Cooling Gel Pillow sleeps cooler and stays cool longer than any other pillow, thanks to its cool layer of Hydraluxe gel fused onto Memory Foam.
The Hydraluxe Cooling Gel Pillow is the best of two worlds: supportive memory foam to shape to the contours of your head so you rest comfortably and gel infused bubbles (or waves) that resist warmth and retain a cool, refreshing feel long into the night. When I say cool I don’t mean just ‘not hot’ – it’s a totally new experience. My first night of sleeping with the Hydraluxe pillow was interesting. When I first put my head down to sleep the cool didn’t come within seconds. It is more of a slow cooling that comes from the pillow slowly – similar to wrapping a medical cooling pack in a thick cloth. Within a few minutes my head was surrounded with a soothing, relaxing coolness that was just right: not too cold or too fast. When I’d wake in the middle of the night I could tell the pillow was still cool and shifting my head seemed to reactivate it even more.
Since I’ve been reviewing this pillow for several months I’ve had the opportunity to use it while suffering from a head cold and several headaches. In both situations, the constant cool of the Hydraluxe Pillow helped soothe my aches (and fevers) and help me get a more restful sleep.
If you’ve never used a memory foam pillow before, it will take one or two nights to get use to it. It’s not ‘fluffy’ like a traditional pillow, but it’s softer than a down pillow. It can be odd to feel your head “sinking” into the pillow, but after a few nights you will notice that it creates a cradle for your head – resulting in your muscles being able to relax instead of support your head and that means less stiffness in your neck.
