Origin Superior Coolmax® Latex Pillow - The Ultimate Plush Pillow

When it comes to our precious sleep, we make sure we have a comfortable environment where we could lay our head and sleep through the night, waking up the next day feeling fresh and energized.  Truth to be told, there are certain percentage of people who does not have quality sleep due to a few factors, namely temperature n the room, bad sleeping posture, mattress (too soft or too hard), flatten pillows.

Today, let's talk about pillows.

The rule of thumb for pillows is that we have to change them every one or two years for the obvious reasons; dirt, oil, sweat and drool can be absorbed and stained the pillow which may cause you to have allergic reaction like swollen eyes and sinus.  Washing the whole pillow may get rid of these but there is only so many years a pillow can support you.

Pillows are not meant to last forever.

Some of us spend a hefty amount on a pillow that promise us a sturdy, fluffy pillow and endless good night sleep, only to have a flatten pillow a few months later.  Rather than ditching these pillow for a new one, we tends to live with it probably because you paid a price for it and not willing to spend another bomb on another pillow within the year. 

By saving those money, we compromised our beauty sleep, restful nights and have to endure the aches and pain from that flatten pillow that does not provide the require support to our head and neck.

What if there is a pillow that you can get your money worth plus letting you sleep like a baby without any aches and pains every day for at least a year?

Best in Singapore sends over a Origin Superior Coolmax® Latex Pillow for me to test the product, so read on and see what is our verdict.

The Sleep Test
The Origin Superior Coolmax® Latex Pillow has denser material thus has a little bit of weight, it feels spongy and sturdy too.  I didn't air nor sun the pillow when I received it and took it to use straight from the box.  I regretted coz there is a faint latex smell and it got stronger when I turn to sleep by my side.  Don't worry, the smell is not toxic, since I am still here writing this post.  

The thickness of the pillow feels just right, the latex foam moulds the shape of my head giving me the right support, aligning my head and neck at a comfortable level, not giving stress to my neck and shoulders.

I sleep on the pillow without any pillowcase just to have a feel of the pillow cover that is threaded with Tencal fabric.  It does feel soft and definitely did not cause any uncomfortable scratchy feeling to my face or neck.  I like that the pillow cover can be removed for washing, this minimize the dust, dirt and odour being trapped and lingering on the cover and later transferred to the pillow.  This further reduce the risk of having any allergy reaction caused by these allergen.

Since I sleeps with the AC on, I couldn't test the cooling effect by the Coolmax® cooling gel but I read from other's reviews that it helps the dissipate heat from the pillow.

Incidentally I had been suffering from neck aches, shoulder aches and soreness  on my lower back for the past week.  These were directly or indirectly caused by a few things -  carrying a overloaded backpack, sleeping posture and pillow that got shifted off my head while I was sleeping. I was still nursing these aches and pains with essential oil and ointment but they weren't showing sign of going away any sooner.

A night with the latex pillow and the next day my neck and should aches were gone!  Not bluffing nor telling lies, you guys know that I will not ever do that.  

My lower back still feels sore though but that is another issue that needs to be solved in another way.

So, it is true that a good support pillow put lesser strain on the head and neck while we sleep and enabling us to have good quality sleep whole night through.

Our Conclusion
The Origin Superior Coolmax® Latex Pillow @ SGD129 (Original price SGD159) is as what the website claimed - it is the ultimate plush pillow that I think every one should have on their bed so that we all can finally enjoy good quality sleep!
