Comfort Revolution Cool Hydraluxe Bed Pillow
Nothing helps a budding scholar retain what they’ve learned more than a good night’s sleep. Hours of cramming are wasted if you’re too tired to really understand the information you need to absorb and let us not forget that exhausted students (like zombies) have notoriously bad test taking skills. That’s why we set out to find the best pillow at the best value for our back to school essentials guide. We’re pleased to say that we think we’ve found it in the Comfort Revolution Cool Hydraluxe Bed Pillow.
The Comfort Revolution Cool Hydraluxe Bed Pillow is, at its core, a memory foam pillow. Traditionally, these pillows, while ergonomic and very comfortable, retained heat and could make for some very hot nights. I’ve always liked memory foam pillows but it is definitely a trade-off. Comfort revolution has figured out the problem by using a special memory foam and cover that enhance breath ability and keep the pillow cool. They’ve also taken pillow design one step further by incorporating a surface layer of gel that provides an extra level of cooling and comfort. After a couple nights with the Comfort Revolution, I’ve gotten rid of my more expensive name brand memory foam pillow and have converted exclusively to the Comfort Revolution Cool Hydraluxe. For those with allergies, have no fear the pillow is hypoallergenic.
The only drawback, which I hesitate to mention since the pillow is otherwise fantastic, is that it does have a strong odor out of the box. The odor dissipates within a day or two but you might not want to use it the first night you open it. I powered through night one and by the second night it wasn’t noticeable.
Where to get it
We think the Comfort Revolution Cool Hydraluxe pillow makes a great gift for someone headed off to college or might make a great and unique addition to a care package as the semester wears on. You can buy the pillow direct from Comfort Revolution for $79.99, though if you look around you might be able to find it for less. Walmart is currently selling it for around $55. Granted, the Comfort Revolution is more expensive than a traditional fill pillow but honestly, is there any other product you spend more hours of your life using than your pillow? This is not the place to skimp! Comfort Revolution also makes mattresses and mattress toppers, we haven’t tried them yet but the pillow has definitely piqued our interest.
