Cool Nights With Polar Pillow {Sponsored Review} @polarpillow

Introducing Polar Pillow! I don’t know about you, but I hate going to bed and not being able to get comfortable because I’m too hot. And how many of you keep turning your pillow over, and over, and over…to keep it cool? Well, now with Polar Pillow, I don’t have to worry about that anymore…and neither do you!
When we first got our Polar Pillows, my husband and I couldn’t wait to go to sleep that night and try them out! We were so excited! We first received them when we were having that horrid heat wave that no AC was a match for! Anything that would cool us down so that we could have a restful sleep felt like a good idea to us!

Anyone who receives this pillow might notice is that it is quite a bit heavier than the average pillow. The reason for this is that it contains 12 pounds of specialized cooling gel. So, do NOT have a pillow fight with one of these pillows! I can definitely tell you that the cooling gel in this pillow works! When you first lay on the pillow, you can’t instantly feel cooling, but within seconds the pillow was cool and so was I.

Not only does this pillow cool you down so that you can sleep better, but the website also claims that it “Helps soothe headaches, hot flashes, night sweats, fevers and skin irritations.” Also, according to scientists, when the brain is cooled people tend to fall asleep faster. From my personal experience, I have been using my pillow for approximately 2 weeks now and I can not recall having a single headache – and I do know that I have slept much better. I used to only be able to sleep about 5 hours a night – now I get 7 or 8. :)

I also like to put my arm under the pillow when I sleep. So my arm and my head both stay super cool. The website states that the pillow stays cool for about 2 hours, but in my experience, if the Polar Pillow starts getting warm, I just move my head to a different part of the pillow and it is cool again…and that only happens maybe twice a night if that – so I feel like the pillow stays cool for much longer than 2 hours. Overall, I really feel like the Polar Pillow is a great find!

    The heat always affects my husband. I think these pillows will help him to get a good night’s rest.

  12. Pamela Halligan says:

    Wow! After reading your review, I so want ome of these pillows. I can relate to turning my current pillow over and over throughout the night, searching for a cool spot. There’s just something about a cool pillow. Plus, the Polar Pillow helps relieve headaches?! – Sold! Thanks for the review. I had never heard of this pillow before your post.

  13. I need new pillows and this is one I’m going to check into.

  14. I’m not a flipper; I’m a scruncher! Girlfriend is a flipper, and I’ll have all the blankets, and she’s still complaining about being hot!

  15. Wow! A cooling pillow! I definitely need one of these! Thanks so much!

  16. Thanks so much for the tip. I hate a hot pillow. I’m forever moving my face to the very edge of the pillow to avoid the heat. This looks like the solution! Bless you!

  17. Terri Betz says:

    Wow! I had no idea there was a pillow like this available! My Son lives in Phoenix, AZ now! He was born & raised in Washington state and it’s so hot there …this would be a super gift for him! :) Thanks for letting us all know about this!

  18. I get so hot at nice and these are so nice in keeping your face cool! I need one of these! Thanks for the great review!

  19. Jenny Stanek says:

    Oh wow, how nice would THIS be during this disgustingly hot summer? I would love one of these for me and my husband. Although my kids are the super-hot sweaty ones, they might need them more than I do!

    • Earlier this summer our AC stopped working and I would sleep with those blue ice packs in my pillow. They are TOO cold, though. I am glad I heard about Polar Pillow! Way better, lol!


  20. I like the pillow fight comment! I constantly turn my pillow over and over again,so it sounds like something I’d like to try.

  21. Georgiana says:

    Love the idea of a cooling pillow filled with gel! This would definitely help me sleep! Thanks so much!

  22. Tracy Awalt Juliano says:

    Isn’t that everyone’s dream (no pun intended)… to find the perfect pillow? The Polar Pillow sounds amazing. I have issues with chronic migraines, so I’m really curious to know if something like this would help. By the way, your “So, do NOT have a pillow fight with one of these pillows!” completely cracked me up. Great (albeit, slightly cruel) visual!

  23. Margot C says:

    What a brilliant idea! What took them so long or is it just me taking so long to find out about this?


    I love my pillows need, im always hot at night and these sound like something I would try

  25. Laura Miller says:

    Thanks for this review! I will be looking into getting one…my husband works nights and sleeps during the day, I’m always looking for anything that can help him get a better quality sleep!

  26. I have a lot of pillows on my bed, not just because I use them, but many are just one I tried and they weren’t right. I would LOVE to try this pillow!!! Night sweats because of this warm weather, YES. My A/C is apparently too small , it never seems to get my room as cold as I would love it at night.

  27. Christy Maurer says:

    I’ll be sure not to have a pillow fight with this lol. This sounds like something that would really help me. I get headaches a lot and would love it if this pillow would help with that. Also I am getting to the point where I’m hot at night (never been that way) so this would really be beneficial!

  28. Tiffany O. says:

    I would love to have one of these pillows. I have pain all the time in my neck from being on my feet for 12 hour shifts as a nurse in the ER. This is a great giveaway!!

  29. Chrystal D says:

    I’d love one of these, I hate trying to sleep when I have a headache!

  30. Christine Waddell says:

    Omigosh, I would love one or two or more of these!!!! I hate hot pillows. I am constantly flipping mine during the night.

  31. Sherry Compton says:

    Interesting. I’ve tried using satin versus cotton versus mixed pillow sheets to try to help me stay cool at night. This sounds like it would be worth a try.

  32. Patricia mohl says:

    Thanks this product would keep me cool with my on set pre-menapause

  33. christy r. says:

    Wow ! The thermal imaging says it all ! This would be perfect for someone approaching menopause. (Not that I know anyone like that – AHEM, COUGH,COUGH )

  34. i totally need this — i get so hot at night.

  35. it sounds so awesome

  36. Debbie Welchert says:

    Wow I would love to have this pillow for my hot flashes. It sounds and looks so comfortable. This would beat having to spray myself down with cool water to cool off at night.

  37. These sound totally amazing and I would LOVE to win one to try it!

  38. Marti Parks says:

    I could have used one of these years ago. Who knew? I have to have one of these. Thank you for the info. :)

  39. Stacey Cockrell says:

    I want one! :)

  40. Lori Williams says:

    I MUST have this pillow! Peri-menopause rears it’s ugly head at night, and this would be a godsend for that.

  41. Christa Krebs says:

    Oh wow, I want this pillow so bad!! Hubby has always complained about how much $$ I spend on our pillows, but he never complains about how comfy they are when he goes to sleep! But they are getting old and worn out. It is past time to replace them and I would love to give these pillows a try!

  42. christina schmidt says:

    Thanks so much for this awesome review! My hubby and I have a tempurpedic bed and it gets SOOOOOO hot at night! Hopefully this pillow will help us cool off a bit

  43. Kelley Roach says:

    looks comfy!

  44. amy marantino says:

    this is a great idea. i think that my dog would like it as much as me though.

  45. This looks perfect for me because I am always too hot at bedtime

  46. Nina Kimwa says:

    Nice! It is for summer time, so I don’t need to worry about skin irritation at night time!

  47. kathy pease says:

    this sounds sweet i have night sweats im not sure if menopause is setting in or its because of my lyme disease but this sounds like it would make a comfortable nights sleep

  48. This sounds like it would be a real help for my migraines!

  49. Danielle Ring says:

    My husband totally needs this!!

  50. Jennifer Peaslee says:

    This pillow looks amazing! I love the ‘cooling’ feature because I have long hair and my neck sweats at night. I want one!!!!

  51. This would be so perfect for my husband.
