The Old Navy does not fail to surprise me. I bought some of my favorite clothing items from the retailer, which included my recent obsession: a matching set is so good that I’m sure it will sell. But sometimes I find items that I never expected. Incidentally: my new favorite pillow case (!) From the retailer, and yes, I was shocked to find the bedding Any Kind to old navy like you.
Insert satin pillowcase ($ 10, basically $ 20) designed with 100 percent polyester satin. I ordered two creams – one for me and one for my fianc – and we immediately replaced them with our former cotton pillows that we used over the years (yes). Curious about whether we liked them? Keep reading for my honest review of affordable search. (Spoiler alert: you probably need one too.)
What I like about this Pillowcase
For starters, everything from the smooth satin texture to the envelope-style opening seems luxurious about this pillow case. For the uninitiated, the latter means that instead of being open on both sides, the pillow is inserted in the center, giving it a smoother look. (This is very convenient if your pillow is prone to slipping off your pillow case, which my partner and I have dealt with before buying these pillows.)
What is worth noting about this Pillowcase
If you are new to the world of satin pillows, here’s what you need to know: Satin (and silk, which is completely different, FYI) is softer on skin and hair than cotton. This presumably prevents creases (and thus, I say) Similarly, satin helps your strands retain moisture because it dries less than cotton. You know more, don’t you?
After studying this pillow review, I noticed that some people mentioned that they noticed that their hair became extra stable after using it, but both me and my fianc can prove that we did not have that problem. In fact, I feel like my hair looks better nowadays (probably because satin is resisting friction-causing-freezing).
Another important note is that you need to be extra careful when washing your satin pillow. According to the brand’s instructions, you need to cool and wash the machine to preserve the fine fabric and keep it shiny.
Would I recommend this pillow?
Absolutely! To my surprise, you can probably find a cheap satin pillow on Amazon, but I can’t guarantee that they will be as high quality as these, sleeping like a baby on them last week. And have you seen other colors they come in? I’m a neutral enthusiast, but there’s no denying that both the “Pink Twister” and “Navy” colors are stunning.
Lastly, if you want to match your snooze game, you might want to consider the brand’s satin pillowcase and slip mask set ($ 20, $ 26). Perhaps this is obvious, but you can’t go wrong with either option.
