PolarPillow :: sleep cool {giveaway}


When talking about how warm or cold I sleep at night I always reference my personal space heater, aka my husband.  I will go to bed cold, knowing that I will wake up within a couple hours overheated and needing to adjust my pillow to a cooler spot.  While I've gotten used to it, this has not been conducive to a good night's sleep.

A couple weeks ago I was asked if I'd like to test out the PolarPillow.  I'd never heard of them before, but I figured a pillow that could stay cool and possibly help me sleep better was definitely worth trying.  I can honestly say that since I started using my PolarPillow I have slept more comfortably and with less interruption every night.  Ahhh... restful sleep makes me happy. :)

If you're curious how the PolarPillow works the "PolarPillow's endothermic gel technology uses the coolness of ambient room temperature to dissipate body heat."

Um, yeah...  So I don't really understand their well-worded scientific explanation, but I do know that the PolarPillow really does work.  Within seconds of laying my head down on the blue side of my PolarPillow I can feel the cooling gel getting colder and will wake up hours later to a still cold pillow.

A couple things that I found nice to know about my PolarPillow: 1) it's surprisingly heavy due to the 200 ounces of cooling gel (go figure); 2) it fits a standard pillow case; 3) you wanna use a pillow case because the PolarPillow is spot clean or hand wash only. If you want to know more of the scientific workings of the PolarPillow I suggest checking out their FAQs and Technology page.
