A few weeks ago I was asked to do a product review on the Chillow – the As Seen On TV cooling pillow. Well… it’s been cold. Like stupid cold. No, not Minnesota cold, but really cold for Florida. So keeping “cool” has not been a problem… until last night.
If you have been around a while you may remember I had to have a hysterectomy a few years ago. Not to get too TMI here but we left one ovary so I didnt go on HRT thinking I would be fine. But every once in a while I get a hot flash that make me feel like my hair is going to actually ignite.
Last night was one of those times.
You know a hot flash is bad when it wakes you out of a dead sleep. Anyways, somewhere in the neighborhood of 2am I got up and stumbled in to my office and grabbed my Chillow. I had already activated it when I received it (thankfully, because that takes a few hours) and had it sitting on my other desk – thinking it was too cold at night to worry about needing cooling. Boy was I wrong. I took my new found best friend back to bed with me and proceeded to snuggle it like a teddybear. It felt amazing.
The Chillow is amazing for hot flashes – or “personal summers” as I like to call them – but it is also great for back aches, sore feet, headaches, fevers, and body aches from the flu. The Chillow pulls heat from your body and absorbs it into the foam. Its non gel, latex and phthalate free, and portable – so you can easily take it anywhere.
I think the Chillow is awesome and plan to get another one for the girls so they can have their own. Midge was already trying to steal mine this morning. You can get your own Chillow from local stores with the “As Seen On TV” section, or order online to get two for the price of one!
Personally… I hope they make one body pillow size.
