Cuddle Cool from Telebrands says their contoured pillow is engineered to keep you cool as you sleep. They state it’s filled with gel-infused memory foam and it will pull the heat away from you, eliminating the night sweats. On top of that, they promise Cuddle Cool Pillow will contour to your head allowing for a deeper sleep and will keep its shape night after night.
How Cuddle Cool Pillow Works
Cuddle Cool looks like a standard double-humped contour pillow sold by a variety of different manufacturers. There is only one firmness, but it comes in sizes Queen or King. Cuddle Cool says its secret to both its cuddliness and its coolness is the gel-infused memory foam. First it will cushion your head, perfectly conforming to its shape. Then, they say the ventilated memory foam will draw the heat away from your head and into the gel, dissipating the heat. Finally, they promise you won’t wake up in the morning with a sore or stiff neck.
What is Memory Foam?
Memory foam is truly a “space age product” as it was invented by NASA in the 1960s to help keep their astronauts comfy on their long trips. It crossed over into the consumer market first with Tempurpedic mattresses being the first. The notable thing about memory foam was that it reacts with heat, and then contours to the shape of the body or head. The bad news was that it was also known to retain heat and sometime emit a chemical odor.
Over the years, new generations of memory foam products have attempted to deal with these problems. Some companies tout a plant-based foam that is more cushiony and eco-friendly. Cuddle Cool Pillow appears to be using what is known as gel-infused memory foam. Proponents of this type of foam claim it absorb and dissipate heat more effectively. However, some feel gel-infused memory foam tends to still hold heat and not be as springy as the other foams.
Cuddle Cool Pillow Cost:
$39.98 for 1 Queen and $49.98 for King (listed as $29.99 or $39.99 plus $9.98 S&H, respectively). Cuddle Cool Pillow lists a 60-day money back guarantee, minus any shipping and handling.
But we want to note that Telebrands’ doesn’t allow returns of intimate apparel or consumable items (meaning things that you use up); instead they offer a free replacement. We were wondering if Cuddle Cool Pillow was eligible for a refund if used. However, customer service could provide no further information.
Bottom Line: Is Cuddle Cool a Good Pillow?
First of all, everyone has different needs when it comes to getting some shut-eye. If you’re one of the estimated 63% that sleep on their side, you’re going to need a different type of pillow than back (14%) or stomach (16%). Side sleepers tend to need a firmer pillow than the others. Some people love memory foam, while others love goose down. But, again, it’s up to you.
We should make you aware that Telebrands currently has an F rating from the BBB, due to 1438 complaints in the last 3 years (as of Feb 2015).
