The other day, I had the pleasure of meeting at my friend’s work, they are the manufacturers of these Better than Down memory foam down pillows.
I’ve actually been looking for some new pillows, some down pillows. Why I still haven’t spent any money on them? Let’s just say I am just lazy and also frugal, I don’t want to spend too much money on expensive down pillows. Even though I love them, I don’t want to end up spending a lot because I will need at least 2 or 3 of them. I still use these Keetsa memory foam neck pillows, which are great but really, I wanted more “down” feel to my pillows like staying at a 5-star hotel.
To my surprise, my visit to my friend’s work ended up that I got to review these Brookstone BioSense memory foam down pillows. They told me that these sell like hotcakes at the Brookstone retail stores.
Well, I tried them, and you know what, they are the “best” down pillows I’ve tried. I have to emphasize “down” because even though they are not technically 100% down, it feels like one. In fact, it feel like 2 or 3 down pillows put into one pillow.
The secret? I found out.
As you can see in the above image, the core of the pillow is actually memory foam with drilled/slotted holes (that help air flow through) while the outer casing consists of “down”. This one is the “Neck Pillow”, you can get it on Amazon for $69.95.
Here, I took a short video while I tried it out:
Sadly, I wasn’t able to talk my friend into getting me a free sample but definitely I will be buying them on Amazon or haggling my friend for the next 3 months.
There’s actually 3 different models of these new Brookstone BioSense memory foam down pillows.
The one pictured above is a “Shoulder” pillow that let you easily sleep on your side. I am a side-sleeping addict, you know I can even remember sleeping like that in my mother’s womb. This one is actually my favorite, you can get this on Amazon for $69.95. If you are a side-sleeping addict like me, I *highly* recommend this, I really love this pillow.
Here’s a video of the neck pillow:
For those of you who enjoy “traditional” down pillows, I recommend this “classic” Better than down pillow, which is just a regular pillow shape, available on Amazon for $69.95.
