You see that face? That’s the face of a woman living out a lifelong dream. It has always been my goal to find a pillow that stays cool at night. I had heard of people putting their traditional pillows in the refrigerator. I have to tell you, as icky as it sounds to have your pillow next to your sauerkraut and cottage cheese, I considered it. I like the cool side of the pillow, what can I say? You can imagine how psyched I was when Chili Technology asked me to review their Chili Cloud Gel Pillow. I imagined it would be like the other side of the pillow for Peter Griffin
I have this thing where I can’t sit in a seat someone else just sat in. I hate residual butt heat. At my last job the guys in one area knew this. So, when they saw me coming they would all run and fill the seats before I came in the room. Some would even proudly announce how much gas they had produced in their seat so I would be sure to know how warm they had left that particular chair for me. Gross.
I also can’t stand to have my head get too hot at night which meant I was a frequent pillow flipper.
I even had a fancy Tempur-Pedic-like pillow from Brookstone for the past few years that my Mother-In-Law bought me for Christmas. The Chili Cloud Gel Pillow had a big pillow case to fill because I really liked the support of the foam in the Brookstone one. It had a satin side and I liked how the satin made my head feel a little cooler, but I still found myself turning it instead of flipping it.
I was skeptical, but the Chili Pillow has not disappointed me. It has a gel panel that keeps your head and face noticably cool. It’s a really neat technology. Check it out here. The foam-like material it’s made from is amazing, ya’ll! It is very supportive and doesn’t lose shape. I HATE bunching up hotel pillows or doubling up old traditional pillows. Again, I was coming off a fancy pillow, so this one had to deliver in supportiveness and it did!
The one thing I would change about the Chili Pillow is the size of the gel pad. I wish it extended all the way to the edge of the pillow, that way my neck and shoulders would feel cool all the time too. Plus, my head rarely stays in the middle of the pillow. Call me a pregnant princess, but I really want complete comfort as I am gestating and sleeping at the same time.
The Chili Cloud Gel Pillow would be awesome for any pregnant woman, or anyone fussy about their temperature at night. Have any of you ever used a pillow like this? Would you? Have you tried others before? Would this kind of thing appeal to you? Let me know and I’ll tell Chili Technology what you think.
