You must’ve heard countless of times how important it is to polish and nourish your beauty sleep and get plentiful of long and lasting rest. But, what happens when your beauty sleep becomes everything but beauty-enhancing? Some people sleep on their backs, some on their stomachs, while some sleep on their sides.
People who sleep with their face on the pillow often end up waking up with sleep wrinkles that can eventually grow to become permanent if persistent enough.
Sleep & Glow company came up with a revolutionary solution and in this article, we’ll compile our sleep and glow pillow review.
What is Sleep & Glow Pillow?
Back sleepers have a rather easy time when sleeping on their back. However, with an average head weight being over 11lbs, many people experience waking up tired and wrinkly from sleeping with their faces facing the pillow.
Sleep & Glow has one mission, and that is to minimize the occurrence of sleep wrinkles and invented several products that can help achieve that. One of them is the Sleep & Glow Pillow.
Essentially, by its shape as well as all of its other features, Sleep & Glow pillow is extremely different compared to other pillows. Unlike standard pillows, it consists of different zones that are capable of taking the entire weight of the head and preserve its original shape.
When the head sleeps on a standard pillow, regardless of the material, the skin gets twisted and squished. After about eight hours of sleep, the shape of the face may change completely.
On some occasions, the skin may even become swollen and after some time, the wrinkles will begin forming.
Sleep & Glow pillow aims to change the condition of sleep wrinkles that eventually can affect the daily wrinkles we get by aging and changing expressions.
Another name for it is an “anti-aging” pillow because it puts less strain on your face compared to the traditional pillows every home has. In this review, you’ll learn everything about this pillow and how it can preserve your youth.
Design And Construction
Sleep & Glow Pillow looks rather bizarre. It’s different for all different kinds of neck and posture-enhancing pillows. Its futuristic look not only looks different compared to everything else you’ve seen in the past, but you’ll also wonder how to get used to it and have a healthy sleep as a result of its shape.
The delivery time for the pillow is rather quick, and once you open the package, you’ll be greeted with a large, plushy H-shaped pillow, turned to the side. As you can see, it consists of different zones that conform to your shape of the head, but more about that later.
What’s important is that the first impression of it, seeing its design will likely make you wonder how can you ever grow to sleep on it? Don’t worry, you will.
The pillow in itself looks attractive and feminine. It is available in only one dimension – 22 x 15 x 5-inches, which may not suit everyone based on their height, sleeping position and shape, and size of their head.
However, the materials of the Sleep & Glow Pillow, not only conform to your head’s shape, but they also adapt in a way that every next time you’ll sleep on it feels more natural.
The pillow consists of multiple zones that each work in a way of solving a certain orthopedic problem. That said, while this pillow was designed with the mind of getting rid of the wrinkles and other beauty-compromising issues, it also involved orthopedic experts working on it, to make it appropriate for different sleeping positions and to be beneficial towards spine and posture, unlike some other pillows.
Sleep & Glow Pillow Zones
As mentioned above, the revolutionary and future-proof pillow that aims to change the entire sleeping culture and invent some new technologies to preserve our night-time health and youth.
You must be baffled by the weird side letter H shapes, and below, we’ll explain what each one of them means.
1. Face Cradle For Sleeping On Your Side
The first and most important of the six zones this pillow has is intended for side sleepers, for both of the sides.
The cutouts of each side of the pillow are meant to cradle and conform to the shape of your face as you sleep on their side. It naturally hugs your face, keeping it natural, and you won’t have to worry about the pillow getting too hot.
Cosmetics experts worked on it very hard to make it approachable even for people with sensitive faces, and because your face won’t be squished unlike with standard pillows, you won’t have to worry about wrinkles or other irritations on your face.
2. Zone for head positioning
Next to the zone for side sleepers, there is a small zone for head positioning. It’s intended for both types of sleepers because it conforms to the shape of your head as soon as you touch the pillow, keeping it in one place.
If you’re one of those people who feel irritated when you feel as if you’re slipping off your pillow, this feature is great for keeping your head in a stable position. Additionally, it reduces the strain, pressure, and tension from the head, allowing you to relax your facial muscles and fall asleep swiftly.
3. Head-Cradle For Sleeping On Your Back
Even though this pillow comes in handy towards people who preferably sleep on their sides and stomach, there is still a cutout for the back of the head for people who occasionally turn on their back and want to experience the comfort of sleeping on their back and natural neck and spine alignment.
This zone promotes sleeping on the back and extends it in the process because there is a small narrow area acting like depression in the middle of the pillow.
That said, you won’t be feeling exhausted from the back as the pillow encourages you to stay on your back without experiencing the consequences of sleeping on the back with little to no effort.
4. Upper Head Support
The upper head support bolster is thicker compared to the lower one. That way you’ll also be able to make a difference between which part should be facing upwards and which one downwards.
A lot of people make this mistake when getting the pillow for the first time, but if you give it a good look, you’ll notice the extra-thickness towards the top where you can put your head at a slight incline.
This upper bolster is especially beneficial to the health of your head because it keeps your head at a slight incline, preventing the blood from entering your brain in excess amounts and preventing headaches and head swelling first thing in the morning. It can work both for people on their backs and their sides.
5. Neck support
The lower horizontal end of the pillow features a neck support bolster that conforms to the size and shape of your neck, creating a firm and posture-enhancing connection between your neck and spine regardless of the sleeping position.
This layer is extremely important, and while it’s less thick compared to the upper side, it promotes a healthy neck position, especially because that encourages proper blood flow and lymphatic fluids. That said, in the morning, you should wake up completely rested and refreshed, without potential morning headaches and numbness which are a frequent occurrence when sleeping on a standard pillow.
6. Shoulder cradle
The shoulder cradle is located at the lower half of the pillow, beneath its surface and it’s there so that your shoulders will be aligned with your neck and head.
Your shoulders will now embrace a firm sleeping surface instead of squishy and plush pillows which can often corrupt the positioning and make you sleep misaligned with your neck and spine. This layer will promote the healthy sleeping position of all sides, and also contribute to waking up without discomfort and headache.
It’s also important to feature that the higher bolster is for the upper side of the pillow, while the neck bolster is lower in thickness because it’s important to highlight that shoulders too need to feel relaxed when you wake up.
The anatomic shape of this future-proof pillow wouldn’t be complete without the high-end materials which ensure it stands against the most competitive pillows. Initially, it’s important to note that this pillow was patented in the USA, Europe, and Japan, and made in Europe, using hand-crafting and top-notch materials that ensure safety and comfort, alongside the Safety-approved materials.
The Sleep & Glow Pillow uses a high-quality memory foam with gel-infused beads that ensure that the memory foam doesn’t only conform and hug your head to sleep, it will also feel necessarily cool and breezy for you to sleep comfortably without turning too much.
That’s extremely important because the traditional and standard pillows tend to get extremely hot, causing rashes and sweating. You won’t have to worry about that with this magnificent pillow.
The memory foam completely adapts to the shape of your head, whether it’s smaller or bigger in terms of shape. More importantly, after sleeping on it for an extended time, it will completely adjust to you, hugging you to sleep every night.
So far, you can choose between two types of cover fabrics. Tencel and Natural Silk. Both fabrics for the pillowcases are extremely soft and comfortable, even more so compared to the cotton silk.
The impeccable quality will have positive benefits for your sleep, and keep your head relaxed with its cooling features. Additionally, the high-quality material doesn’t absorb cremes or moisture, so you can use the pillow in combination with sleeping cremes such as Deep Sleep Body Cocoon.
While explaining technical specifications in terms of materials, design, and construction really helps shape our review, it’s the quality that matters. In terms of quality, it’s unprecedented.
Sleep and Glow Pillow will preserve your night time beauty, and won’t cause any kind of swelling, night wrinkles or worsening of expressional wrinkles. It feels like sleeping on an extremely soft and cushy cloud that while keeping your youth also preserves the health of your spine and posture.
In addition to the safety and quality standards, this pillow comes with 3 years warranty. It’s no secret that memory foam may sink at times, but with the high-quality foam provided by Sleep & Glow, that shouldn’t happen.
Additionally, given that experimenting with different shapes of the pillow isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, Sleep & Glow Pillow will deliver with a 30-night trial and return policy, meaning you can test the pillow for 30 days before you can determine whether its quality is for you or not.
Lastly, for everyone who is a side sleeper and afraid of getting their face smashed, this pillow is the real deal.
6 zones for flawless resting experience – Each of the zones were designed to accommodate certain sleeping position and ailment. For some it’s sleeping on their sides, for others, it’s sleeping on their back, posture problems, and others.
- Puffiness reduction – Getting your face squished while sleeping on your side or stomach often leads to morning puffiness, you don’t have to worry about that with this pillow.
- Approved By Cosmeticians and Ortophedics – This pillow was built to reduce puffiness, provide anti-aging experience by eliminating wrinkles, and even provide proper skincare. Orthopedics ensured that the shape of the pillow will be healthy for those with back and shoulder problems. It can even protect eyelash extensions.
- Hypoallergenic – The pillow is equipped with Silver Ions which prevent bacteria, fungi, and other allergens and microbes from getting on the sleeping surface and compromising your sleep. The pillow also promotes deep sleep.
- Sleep trial – If you’re unsure about the quality of this pillow, you should take a sleep trial that lasts 30 days.
Drawbacks: Even though this pillow is truly futuristic, some of its features aren’t for everyone.
The first drawback is that it only comes in one size, so despite the flexible memory foam, the pillow may appear too big or too small for some people.
Another drawback we would like to point out is that it may take some time to get used to its weird-looking, yet highly-effective shape.
If sleeping on the side and stomach has been a pain for you and your face, this pillow will definitely solve your problems. It does have a steep learning curve when it comes to getting used to it, but it’s worthy by all the cosmetic and orthopedic standards.
