Product review

So, after acknowledging my past struggles with insomnia, I have become the sort of person that doles out sagely advice on how you can get a good night's sleep 😄 A sleep "guru" if you will 😂

But in all seriousness, I am doing much better in the shut-eye department folks. Presently, I get around six hours of restful sleep every night and even though that is still less than ideal, it just about works for me and I really can't complain. 

So, if you think sleep is all about switching off your mind and body for a couple of hours then think again! While you are sleeping, your body is hard at work cleaning up the mess you’ve made during the day. Your systems are busy flushing out toxins, replacing cells, repairing damaged tissues and restoring your energy supply.

There is plenty of research out there to show that poor sleep has immediate negative effects on your hormones, exercise performance, and brain function. It is also linked to weight gain and increase disease risk in both adults and children. 

Given today’s increasingly demanding workload, many people take their work home with them, either physically or metaphorically. Overthinking by dwelling on problems and thinking about things one has no control over, overstimulation by electronic gadgets, overscheduling in the name of productivity (guilty! 🙋) and different kinds of stresses are some of the major factors that have contributed to the overall decline in sleep quantity and quality. 

A few things that helped me personally to improve my sleep quality is to exercise everyday (usually early mornings or afternoons), avoid caffeine late in the day, have an early dinner, maintain a consistent bedtime and rising schedule, avoid using electronic gadgets just before bed and to get a comfortable mattress, pillow and bedding.

As a general rule, bed pillows need to be replaced after 18 months. I'm sure not many of us follow that right? And although most people do understand the importance of investing in a good mattress, not as much thought is given to pillows. But if you think about it, your pillow gets used about 7-8 hours a night (which amounts to more than 2,500 hours a year!) so, like your mattress, your pillow is an investment in high-quality sleep, which pays dividends across your waking life. 

The good folks at Best In Singapore recently sent me a Origin Superior Coolmax Latex Pillow for the purpose of review.

The pillow arrived in great packaging and way sooner than I expected!



I unboxed it and discovered it to be soft and fluffy yet dense and quite firm.


The pillow comes with a luxuriously soft pillow cover but I recommend that you put another one of your own pillow cover over it to protect it.



This is the ultimate plush pillow that cradles your head. The Origin Superior Coolmax Latex Pillow offers a responsive Latex foam support and is completed with a removable Tencel fabric pillow cover hat is easy to clean and suitable for machine wash.

The Latex material of the pillow will mould accordingly to the shape of your head giving you the perfect level of sleep support. 

The high-quality Latex material the pillow is made of is also perfect for people with dust allergy. Latex is extremely durable with hypoallergenic properties that have lesser dust, bacteria or mould issues.

Benefits of Natural Latex:

  • A denser material, it moulds to the shape of your head to give you better support
  • Hypoallergenic
  • Impression-resistant, it will hold its shape for many years while still retaining its softness

Benefits of Tencel Fabric:

Tencel fabric is known for its natural comfort, environmentally responsible production process and being softer as compared to cotton. It is hypoallergenic, lightweight, and extremely ideal for hot weather climates like what we experience in Singapore. 

Features:

  • Pillow Dimensions – 65cm x 40cm x 13cm
  • Material: Natural Latex + Coolmax Cooling Gel
  • Removable Tencel Fabric Pillow Cover

This pillow is a product of Germany, comes with a two year warranty and delivery is super quick!

If you are still not sure, you can opt for the 30-Night Trial. The company has a money-back guarantee with no questions asked policy which is great 😊

You may find the pillow a bit pricey but remember that you are paying for good-quality. The original price is $159.00 but it has now been slashed to $129.00

My verdict: 
This is good quality product that will keep you supported and cool throughout your sleep.

While sleeping at night, I am used to lighter and thinner pillows to get that sinking-in feeling and to be able to re-shape and move my pillow with me as I rest, so this pillow felt a tad too firm and bouncy for me. To be fair, it will probably take a little getting used to. That being said, I found it perfect to lean against while propped up in bed reading, watching TV and blogging which I spend a LOT of time doing. I absolutely love how wonderfully supportive it is and it doesn't feel hot at all. I love it! My husband also felt the same way so now we are kind of taking turns using it in the evenings and on weekends 😊

Thank you Best In Singapore for sending me this pillow!
