This Beauty Sleep Pillow Finally Got Me to Sleep Through the Night
For the past three years, I've struggled with sleep issues. I've tried everything from no phone or TV an hour before bed, to sleep gummies, meditation and yes, counting sheep—nothing seemed to work.
I realized that in addition to not being able to fall asleep, I always woke up with a sore neck or shoulder, which I usually shrugged off as the result of a hard workout or trying to learn a TikTok dance (lol). I love my bed, and I've always been drawn to super soft, full, squishy pillows—the ones full of feathers that cause the pillow to rise up on both sides when your head sinks into it. Getting comfortable was never my issue, or so I thought. For years, I sank into my pillow each night, only to not get a wink of sleep.
Then one day, I stumbled across the Sleep & Glow pillow while shopping for silk pillowcases, and instantly I was intrigued—so I got one. And let's just say, I got a whole lot more than beauty sleep.
Sleep & Glow pillow is a firm pillow made from natural fabrics, including 100% Tencel and natural silk, which, they boast, don't absorb your skincare products and reduce hair breakage. The pillow has a structured design that encourages you to sleep on your back and also helps maintain more youthful-looking skin, fight puffiness, and, my biggest concern, gets you into a super deep sleep. At this point, I was down to try anything to get some shut-eye.
When I first got this pillow, I was anxious because it was so firm and I'd never slept on something as taut and un-fluffy. For me, the firmness did take some getting used to. I didn't sleep any more than usual the first few nights, and contemplated going back to my fluffy down feather pillow on several occasions. However, after reading the testimonials, I decided to stick with it—and boy am I glad I did.
After a week of using the Sleep & Glow pillow, not only did I fall and stay asleep, but all of the back and shoulder aches I'd woke up with suddenly vanished. And, I was sleeping on my back instead of my sides, which isn't only great for your health, it's good for your skin, too. Flash forward almost a year later and I still swear by this pillow. My hair has less breakage and I don't wake up with lines on my face or chest from sleeping on my side. And most importantly, I get deep sleep and wake up feeling so refreshed and ready to take on the day.
Even though the Sleep & Glow pillow is an investment at $165, it's 100% worth it if you struggle with sleep issues. And, they offer a 30-night trial so you can test it and return it if it doesn't work for you. Sleep is crucial for brain function and learning, and I can honestly say I function so much better after a night of sleep with my Sleep & Glow!
