I haven't started having HOT FLASHES yet, but I've heard they are horrible and I know that they will be coming someday! But I do know what it's like to have a hard time going to sleep because I'm hot...and last summer was an exceptionally hot summer for me and the kids and sleeping in a hothouse is NO BUENO! This summer should be cooler, but it's still hard to sleep when you're HOT and can't cool down. So anything that will help save me money (electricity bill) and also make us comfortable, cool and give us a good night's sleep are things I want to learn more about!

When the Carex Pillow Cool arrived, I was curious how this was really going to work. It requires no refrigeration, no water, and should stay flat on the floor or your pillow while you rest or sleep.
Yet it's suppose to help COOL your body temperature down...
The first night it came, I tried it out first! It was fairly warm in my room and I laid this on top of my pillow and tried to go to sleep. It did cool me down...but I honestly, I couldn't get comfortable "SLEEPING" on it. I prefer my nice, soft, snuggly pillow. Because it's like laying on a mat (of sorts), I couldn't snuggle my head in and relax. So after I was good and cooled down, I just removed it and went to sleep! That worked for me!
However, our oldest daughter, who sleeps on the top bunk in the girl's room, always complains she's warm at night time (even when I've been running the air conditioner). So she tried this out and SHE LOVED IT! In fact, it cooled her right down and I didn't hear from her until morning!
She loved it! She's adopted it as her own and I will probably never have the chance to "TRY" to sleep with it again, because it TOTALLY works for her! But honestly, I'm okay with that! If the kids sleep good, that means that I will sleep better too!
This pillow would also be wonderful for cooling down after a workout...I can visual a HOT YOGA class or the warm down to a kickboxing class. And yes, once those hot flashes start hitting me...I'll be using this Pillow Cool to stay comfortable and get through them...
CLICK HERE to learn more about this product! It really does, what they claim it does! And it's large enough to cover (for the most part) a bed pillow...for you to sleep on at night! The Pillow Cool, could bring you a nice cool, summer's night sleep!
