I wanted to share my new favorite thing with you guys! It is the PolarGel Cool Pillow Mat. I love this so much I’m getting a second one for my Husband (so we can stop arguing over who gets to use it).
I’m sure many of you have had to flip your pillow over during the night to get to the cool spot. The problem I have with this is that I use a special neck pillow which has a particular contour you are suppose to use when sleeping. So if I were to flip the pillow over that contour is all messed up and I usually wake up with a stiff neck.
This Gel pillow literally cools you off – I’m not even kidding. When I first saw the product I was intrigued – thinking you would first need to put it in the fridge or something like that to get it cold. I couldn’t have been more wrong (although you can put it in there if you want). I was honestly shocked at how well it worked after just pulling it out of the box. At first I touched it briefly and though – ok I don’t see how this is cooling. Then I just placed my hand on the gel (for longer than a few seconds like I had originally done) and it literally felt like I was touching something that had been in the fridge for hours.
I was so shocked at how well it worked I called my husband over and had him try it – this was a mistake because he then wanted to use it and I only had one. So we cut a deal – he could use it before we went to bed but I would use it during the night because my pillow made it difficult to just ‘flip’ over without giving me a neck ache the next day.
All you have to do it just slide this in your pillowcase and that’s its. It has a gel-like feeling – which is exactly what you would expect given the name and it kept me cool all night. I will say it personally took me a day or two to get used to (I was so use to my particular pillow – I am literally the most picky pillow person ever – I take my pillow on trips with me because I love it so much). Now I don’t go a night without this Gel pillow on the pillow.
I would highly recommend it! You can find the PolarGel Cool Pillow Mat here.
