Are you a pillow flipper? Always looking for the “cool” side of your pillow? I can’t sleep when I am hot and I was constantly flipping my pillow over to try to find the “cool” side so I could get comfortable to fall asleep. I saw someone mention the Polar Pillow and I had to try it myself. The Polar Pillow is a unique pillow that is filled with a liquid cooling gel. It doesn’t require batteries or anything special to cool. It takes the coolness from the air and releases it on your skin when you put your head on it. It stays cool for up to 2 hours but if you put the special included Turbo-Cooling Pack inside it will stay cool all night.
I don’t always put the Turbo-Cooling Pack inside my Polar Pillow. I keep it in the freezer for when I really want to cool my pillow down but sometimes I just use my Polar Pillow on it’s own and it is still pretty cool. It took a little getting used to as the Polar Pillow doesn’t feel like a regular pillow. It is smaller than a standard size pillow but can fit inside a standard pillow case with the ends tucked in. It weighs 12 pounds from the cooling gel which is what I really had to get used to. It is firm but malleable so it conforms to your head’s shape. I’ve always slept on multiple pillows so I put my Polar Pillow on top of my regular old pillow but I find the Polar Pillow comfortable itself. When I first tried it I described it to my husband as a mini waterbed for my head because of the way my head comfortably fit into the pillow and moved with the cooling gel inside.
It is much easier to fall asleep now that I am using my Polar Pillow. I use it with a pillowcase to keep it clean and I can feel the cooling effect within about 10 seconds of laying my head down. One tip that I noticed is that after I take out the Turbo-Cooling Pack I wipe the inside of the Polar Pillow out because sometimes it gets a little moist inside from the condensation of the Turbo-Cooling Pack when it is frozen. Once you get off of the Polar Pillow it takes about 20 minutes for it to cool off again which is great when I wake up in the middle of the night so I can have it cool down and get me back to sleep again. If you like sleeping on a cool pillow and/or have trouble falling asleep this just might be the pillow for you.
