Silk perfect pillow case review

For years, people have raved about the hydrating and anti-ageing benefits of silk, so when I was given a Silk perfect pillow case, I couldn't wait to put those claims to the test:

SilkPerfect cases are machine washable and have silk on one side and cotton on the other, to prevent the pillow from slipping during the night. I personally would have preferred silk on both sides, but at £25 for 2 pillow cases, they are very competitively priced.

Compared to my usual cotton case, the fabric was so much smoother and it had a nice cooling sensation as well. I thought it was a pleasure to use and felt truly luxurious.

Since using it, the results have been quite subtle, but my skin seems less dehydrated and prone to dry patches and my hair a little smoother and easier to comb through.

Because the results were quite subtle, I wasn't 100% convinced at first, however when I temporarily switched back to cotton pillowcases, there was a noticeable difference in the condition of my skin and hair. Since then I've always slept on a silk pillowcase and I'm hopful that long term, it'll help to keep the wrinkles at bay!

Have you tried Silk pillow cases? What luxury items do you like to treat yourself to?

  1. Great review, I've read in the past that silk pillow cases are better for your hair and skin. That's amazing that you noticed a difference when you switched back to a cotton one. x

  11. Great post! I remember an old Cosmopolitan had an interview thing of Beyonce, where she said that she loved her silk pillow cases... And when she didn't have one, she would dress her pillow with a silk nightie!

    I love your blog, girl- new follower here ;)

  12. Rachel - It just felt less dehydrated when I used the silk, and that was what convinced me to switch pillowcases x

    cbsg5861- Thank you. I had no idea Beyonce was a silk fan, it's pretty cool that she uses a silk nightie when she doesn't have one x
