I was tossin' and turnin'... turnin' and tossin'... tossin' and turnin' all night...
Old song... true story. Both Mike and I tend to toss and turn at night. It's a constant battle with the pillows, too. In the heat of the Southeast Georgia night, we're constantly flipping the pillows to get to the "cool" side. Frankly, we're fighting the pillows more than sleeping. From May to October -- the battle rages on.
That's why I was so excited to receive two Select Comfort In Balance Pillow Protectors for review.
It didn't take long at all to appreciate the new In Balance Pillow Protectors. In fact, it only took one night. Even though Mike and I both wear our hair short, we both have thick hair and it gets so darn hot on our pillows.
But not with the In Balance Pillow Protectors. They kept us cool and we weren't constantly flipping and turning the pillows to find the "cool spot". Literally, what a welcome relief!
I'm convinced. I had a much better sleep experience than I've had in many a long night. Mike, too. The heat absorption process of these pillow protectors is amazing and it works. I'm satisfied.
No. I'm gratified. As someone who sufferd with chronic insomnia for years, I am greatful for any product that helps me get a good night's rest.
Select Comfort is famous for it's extensive research and product development. They really do care about their customers health and well-being. That's important to me.
Select Comfort has created the In Balance Pillow Protector:
No more flipping, looking for the 'cool spot' - this protector can maintain a cooler sensation. Our classic-style pillow protector features Outlast®* (*Outlast is a trademark of Outlast Technologies, Inc.) temperature balancing material, designed to reduce the temperature swings that can cause restless nights.
Outlast® material absorbs excess heat as it's created and releases it as needed. So there's no need to flip your pillow-it stays just the right temperature all night long. 300-thread-count 100% cotton. Zippered closure. Hypoallergenic; perfect for allergy sensitive individuals.
So... what is Outlast® Technology? Sleep Number bed products incorporating Outlast® Technology continuously interact with the unique microclimate of the human body and the environment to moderate temperature from being too hot or too cold.
The human body naturally sweats to cool the skin, reducing the ability of bedding, clothing and footwear to keep the body dry and comfortable. Outlast® Technology, conversely, keeps individuals more comfortable by absorbing body heat when too much is created, thereby diminishing the amount of moisture the body creates. Here are a few more examples of features and benefits of Outlast® Technology:
Features & Benefits:
*Balances temperature = Increases comfort
*Feels cool, fresh to touch = Reduces sweat
*Absorbs excess heat = Limits overheating
*Stores heat = Keeps you cool
*Releases heat = Keeps you warm
Not Too Hot, Not Too Cold®... Just Right!
