REVIEW and GIVEAWAY: Technogel Pillows - Better Nights Mean Better Days


Technogel® Pillows: The Soft Side of Life



Everyone in this world needs a good night's sleep.  No one can function without some sound sleep.  One element to help this is a good pillow to cushion one's head.  When the pillow is uncomfortable, one will just toss and turn all night long.  I should know.  Last year I had to get a new feather pillow to replace my old one.  I found some nice fluffy down pillows.  For a while they seemed to be fine, then it hit me.  I woke up with terrible neck pain.  For over two weeks, I had neck pain.  I realized that the culprit was mostly likely my new pillow.  I brought my old pillow back out, since I saved it, but I have been having trouble with neck pain for a few months now.  I started searching for a better, more technologically advanced pillow that will adapt with my body.


This is when I found Technogel® Sleeping Anatomic Pillow from Technogel and Dr. Scholl's.  "The Technogel® pillow is made in Italy with particular care and attention to details, uses high technical and innovative materials that allow for a high comfort performance."  These pillows are made of a Technogel® layer and high quality memory foam base. 

The difference between the Technogel® pillow and just a regular memory foam pillow is the gel layer on the top of the pillow.

"Technogel is an unique “soft solid” material, that joins together the 3D deformation of a fluid and the memory’ shape of a solid.  It’s a completely non-toxic and stable polyurethane substance (made without using oils or platicizers), at first developed for the medical field and now used in a wide range of applications, always exploiting the comfort added value it can provide." -From Technogel

 This is the one thing that really drew my attention to Technogel® pillows.  I wanted something that would be the perfect sleeping partner for me.  While I still had my down pillow, I was constantly waking up having to move it around and fluff it up. Not anymore.  I get a much more restful night's sleep.  Technogel® is ergonomically supportive for the proper alignment of my head and neck.  I am so happy about that, and with no neck pain to wake up with.


Another great feature to the Technogel® pillow is that it has the ability to cool you down.    I live in a desert, and it gets so hot here in the summertime.  It never seems to cool off at night.  The Technogel® pillow is designed to lower skin temperature.  It offers a pleasant cool feeling because the gel layer disperses the heat.   I find that I do get a better night's rest with the cooling effect.

The Technogel® pillow is hypoallergenic.  It comes covered in a 100% cotton jersey cover.  There is also another washable cover to go over that which is much more suited for wintertime to keep the pillow a warmer place for your head.

Since Technogel has no volatile agents, it won't break apart over time because of it's durability.  It won't harden or lose any of its elastic and mechanical properties.  This is one pillow that is going to last.

I did pass this pillow around to everyone in the house to try for a few night's each.  We are all side sleepers in the house, so it was a pretty good fit for most of us.  Everyone liked how it cradled their heads and kept them feeling cool all night.  The Anatomic pillow is 4.5" high, and it was just perfect for us.  My husband and my largest son had to put about an inch of padding underneath the pillow so that it would be high enough for them. Since they are big men, I guess they would be more suited for the Deluxe Pillow which is 5.5" high.   Here is a link on how to select the Technogel pillow that would be right for you.

I highly recommend getting a Technogel pillow because better nights means better days.
