Ok….. I’m always honest with you, and in that light, I have to tell you I was skeptical when Bedsure said they wanted to send me a pillow and weighted blanket to try out for a couple of weeks and then evaluate.
Let’s start with the pillow:
I have always been a goose-down-pillow girl and wasn’t very optimistic I would like this Bio-Zero Pillow; and frankly, the only reason I agreed to try it was because I remembered a passing conversation I had with a plastic surgeon when I was visiting my daughter, Tiffany, a couple years ago in LA. We had decided to go spend the day in Beverly Hills…
We ran into a gentleman and got chatting about this-and-that. I asked him what he did for a living and he said he was a facial plastic surgeon. We then had the MOST INTERESTING conversation! He told me how most “models” train themselves to sleep on their backs because it dramatically helps in reducing wrinkles often created in our faces while sleeping on our stomachs or sides. Well, I’m a stomach sleeper, and sure enough, when I was talking to my dermatologist one time she said, “Oh, you must sleep on the right side of your face because you have deeper wrinkles (and a little more sag) there!! UGH!!!! I remembered the conversation with the plastic surgeon but for YEARS I have been unable to train myself to sleep on my back!! I just am not good at it!!
I think my problem has been my pillow! With a goose-down pillow, I feel like I “sink” to the mattress when I try to sleep on my back. When I tried the Bio-Zero Contour Pillow I felt like it cradled my head and supported my neck!! For the first time I could remember, I fell asleep on my back and didn’t wake up an hour later only to switch back to my stomach! The Bio-Zero Contour Pillow can be used in two ways. You can have low-contour or high-contour. I prefer using the pillow side with the high-contour. It’s like it conforms to MY body shape!
When I went to California again a few weeks ago to help my same daughter, Tiffany, decorate her newly-wed apartment, my husband, Steve, stole the pillow from my side of the bed and decided to try it too! Let’s just say, we now fight over who gets to use it!!
And… it has really helped with his occasional “allergy” SNORING!! Yay!!
With the 20% OFF code BIOZJENH, it’s a MUST-TRY!
If I was skeptical about the pillow, I was even more skeptical about the weighted blanket!! You probably don’t know this about me, but I am slightly claustrophobic…. OK, maybe a little more than slightly! I DO NOT like feeling confined in or under anything!! So, before trying it, I read multiple articles on “Why Weighted Blankets” and “Do Weighted Blankets Really Work?” I know you can’t believe everything you read, but the stuff I read on “deep touch pressure stimulation” had me very intrigued, so I decided to face my fears and try it… giggle!
In all honesty, I really liked the weighted blanket! I wouldn’t use the word “love,” but; when the family started passing it around to try, I became even more “sold!” Did you know weighted blankets simulate how a parent swaddles a baby to sleep? It helps ground your body while giving you the feeling of being hugged or cuddled. Bedsure’s Weighted Blanket is filled with High-Density Non-Toxic and Orderless Glass Beads. It has a unique 7-layer construction that ensures sleepers experience maximum softness without feeling the beads. It is also covered in 100% cotton, which allows breathability to keep you from getting too hot.
So, here’s my conclusion on the blanket:
If you have been thinking about getting a weighted blanket, I definitely recommend this one!! It is not too heavy (15 pounds) and if the research is correct, you are going to be getting a better night’s sleep!! Bedsure also offers wonderful customer service and they stand by their products. If you aren’t satisfied with your pillow or blanket, they offer a 30-day money back guarantee!!
I want to say thank you to Bedsure for allowing me to test out their Bio- Zero Contour Pillow and Weighted Blanket!
