Remember my post a few years back when I reviewed the ever so comfy Sleepbear mattress? I was kindly sent this pair or Sleepbear latex pillows for me (and Shaun) to try out and tell you what we think of them!
I purposely didn’t write a post for a couple of months as I really wanted to experience how it was switching from the usual hollowfibre pillows to these natural talalay latex pillows.
Shaun has asthma so it is important the pillows and bedding in our home are anti-allergenic and kept clean. Feather duvets and pillows are out of the question! Did you know that 10% of the weight of your ordinary two-year-old pillow is dead skin, dust mites and their droppings?? This can not only affect your skin but also your health and breathing.
I was extremely happy to give the Sleepbear pillows a go. Not only they are anti-allergenic, they are also sustainable and Polartex® protected. Not to mention turns out they are extremely comfortable too.
I cannot stress enough how important it is to get a good night sleep. It is hard to switch off at night and fall asleep (thinking too much, planning things, worrying…). I am also a bad sleeper and tend to wake up in the middle of the night. I am not saying this is a miracle pillow, because let’s be honest your sleep patterns consist of so many things. However, I must say I do find it easier to drift off at night and have a full night sleep without interruptions.
When I opened the box there was no plastic in sight – the packaging was environmentally friendly reusable drawstring bag. The pillows looked a ‘normal’ size and I thought, one pillow is never going to be enough. Is it going to be comfortable as I I usually sleep on 2 pillows and Shaun uses 3!!! I wanted to give the Sleepbear pillow a chance. I decided to get rid of the old pillows and only use the Sleepbear pillow from now on. The Sleepbear pillow is totally different and it took me a few days to adjust to it. At first it did feel a little strange, the pillow is super comfy but it has a different texture to your “normal” pillow.
We have been sleeping on these for over two months and I must say we both love it! I am finding it easier to drift off to sleep and honestly one pillow is enough for me. It is hard to explain in words. The pillow is quite firm, but once you put your head on it, it feels like you are on a cloud!
I am looking forward to seeing the long term effects that these pillows will have on our wellbeing. Especially for Shaun!
As you can see Coco loves them too!! #pugbear
