I recently made a small investment in a silk pillow case and wanted to share the joys of it with you. Spoiler alert- it’s like sleeping on cloud 9.
I, like many of you, have read my fair share of blog posts about the benefits of having a silk pillowcase. And I’m sure, again like many of you, I have ummed and arred about the price and whether or not it is worth it. So I’m here to settle that argument. In short, yes, it absolutely is!
I invested in my little slice of heaven recently whilst on a visit to John Lewis. I was simply killing time and actually taking in everything in the store, rather then my usual heat seeking missile style, whereby I enter the store on a mission to acquire something very specific. I’m like a shopping ninja. In and out. No mess, no fuss. But luckily not on this day. I was ambling around, somewhat enjoying the freedom to peruse when this flash of soft pink caught my eye.
A pretty pink silk pillowcase delightfully packaged, stretched out on the shelf as if to ask me to buy it. I’m all for fate so I obliged. It was like a flash of inspiration and one that I haven’t regretted for one moment ever since.
Back at base camp, I have unwrapped and indulged in my new found comfort. It is utterly delightful. Everything you imagine and more. I can honestly say I don’t believe that I have ever slept in silk before, and now I am left asking myself, “why on earth not?” Honestly folks, we spend a large proportion of our lives looking at our eyelids, so why not do it in comfort.
The silk pillowcases come in a variety of colours. If you have watched my Youtube video about my spring interior update, you’ll know I have been working towards a specific colour palette in my bedroom recently. Happily good old JL sell a pretty pink silk pillow slip in the most perfect and complimentary shade.
It looks adorable on my bed and I’m not gonna lie, theres definitely an element of princess-ness about it. My 6 year old niece was entirely enamoured with it when she visited last weekend having grown up on a healthy diet of disney princesses. Great endorsement, kudos points to me.
So does it live up to the hype? Absolutely. Just 2 weeks ownership and I am a convert.
I happily awake in the morning now, ‘sans’ map of the world etched onto my face.You know the sort of lines I mean, great gorges in the flesh that look like you’ve gone a few rounds with a grizzly bear during the night. Delightful! But no longer an issue thankfully thanks to my new silky friend.
Hair is notably less frizzy, which lets face it, is a struggle any man, woman and child can do without in the mornings.
The pillow case is also surprisingly robust. I was a little worried that my night creams and hair masks might stain it, but so far so good. The pillow slip is as pristine as the day I brought it.
Caring for your silk pillow case is simple too, it can be washed on a low delicate cycle or hand washed, it’ entirely up to you. I allow mine to air dry but you can always pop it in the drier on a cool setting.
Aside from the many beauty benefits of a silk pillow case, I’ve simply never slept more comfortably. A good nights sleep is worth its weight in gold.
