@jsh139 This style pillow is great for a side sleeper. I’ve got one just like this without the gel. In the picture above, Santa’s actually sleeping on the side-sleeper side of the pillow. The larger bump is to help support your neck. A back sleeper is supposedly more more comfortable on the tapered end.
I believe I found this on Amazon. The one review said…
" I followed the instructions and plugged it into my computer, laid my head on it and before I knew it my hair was a raging inferno. I would not recommend this product for anyone who does not have a USB port built into their head."
Since I use blutooth rather than USB ports, I’m gonna pass.
As a blonde person with long flowing hair, what I rest my head on is very important to me. Recently while camping I had a disaster with my tent and was wandering in the woods when I came upon a cabin. As it was getting late I let myself in and looked for a place to rest. The first room had some bamboo covered shredded memory foam filled pillows, and they were far to hard… so I made my way to the next room where they had bamboo covered shredded memory foam filled pillows that were just a bit too soft after I un-bunched the shredded memory foam bits. I made my way into the last room I found one of these Contour Rest 3-in-1 Insta Cool Standard Gel Pillow and they were just right!!!
The next morning I was arrested for trespass but before they took me away, one of the large burly legal residents of the cabin told me about these wonderful Beautyko pillows, thanks again your hairy saint!!!
In for 4 in king and of course I got VMP it’s the cool way to ship.
Meh, IKEA pillows, $5.99, comfortable and replace them often so as not to give the dust mites, or any other critters that crawl in there, a chance. Washable in hot water, too, just in case you’re a mite masochist.
My wife bought one of these from bed bath and beyond. (I keep wanting to call it linens and things though.) it wasn’t $40… $40 would be a hell of a sale from them. I just hope it’s about the same quality as her pillow is awesome! I’m currently still using a bamboo from round 1 which works but takes a bit to arrange nightly.
I really want to buy this to replace my 20 year old memory foam pillow but I bought those petrified bamboo ones a while back. I can’t keep buying pillows so I threw the rocks in the dryer with wool dryer balls to pummel them into submission. It seems to have worked as it’s about 50% softer. I’ll take on nap on it later to confirm.
In for two but might be a big mistake. After ordering I realized how small they are (19in x 11in) compared to a standard pillow (20in x 26in) and read these not so cool reviews: https://www.groupon.com/deals/gg-contour-rest-3-in-1-insta-cool-gel-pillow
Of course I only sleep on the edge of my pillow so size may not matter in this (pillow) case. I’m not going to lose any sleep over them.
Then there is this review:
Jun 4th, 2014
It’s too big for my arms. It said and looked like it was going to be tight and then stretch over your arm and compress it. However, it was way too big. I could fit both my arms in it and still had room left over. I’m going to throw my sewing machine at it and see if that doesn’t make it smaller.
Okay, so I absolutely love this thing. That gel layer really does make the back of your head stay totally cool. With this pillow, I can actually sleep very comfortably on my back. I don’t have to side sleep almost all the time now. I did wind up side sleeping on it inadvertently a time or two, and it was still okay for that, but if I really feel the need to side sleep, I tent to shove it aside and go for my regular goose feather pillow. But most of the times I’ve slept since getting this thing, I’ve just slept on it lying on my back.
