For the past year my sleep quality has declined drastically. I mean I was never a great sleeper but for some reason I got to a point where I was waking up at least 5 or 6 times during the night. Everyone around me insisted it was my screen time or food consumption or even the mercury retrograde. I couldn’t tell you what it was but I knew it definitely wasn’t any of those things!
Earlier this month I was contacted by Formtastic and asked if I wanted to join the sleep revolution. By this point I was willing to try anything and so I signed myself up. Formtastic very kindly sent me one of their bamboo memory foam pillows out and here are my honest thoughts.
My pillow arrived in it’s very own carry case. I’ll be honest, the first impression were looking VERY good and I knew right away that I was going to love this brand! I love the idea of having a case so much, it just makes sense to have one incase you’re ever travelling and need a good pillow/nights sleep. So naturally, I was eagerly anticipating putting the pillow to use.
Once I opened up the case, I noticed a short, informative booklet which tells you everything you need, including just how best to use the pillow.
If like me, you’ve never used a memory foam pillow then this comes in extremely handy because I was just looking at the weird shaped pillow like ‘ok what now?’. Whether you sleep on your side, front or back, Formtastic have a recommendation for you.
Traditional pillows cause problems such as neck cricks, spinal issues, headaches and migraines (It’s got me thinking whether my pillows could be triggering my migraines now!), and can also be a nightmare for allergy sufferers. The groundbreaking design of these memory foam pillows eliminates these because they cradle your head and neck with it’s shape, aligning your spine, facilitating optimal blood circulation, and providing the support to relieve pressure, relax and rejuvenate.
The design components are also revolutionary as the micro-engineered contours know your body as well as you do, with the bamboo memory foam supporting you in exactly the right places. The special Formtastic Airflow tech puts a stop to the stuffy, sweaty feel of traditional pillows, creating a steady air circulation across your skin.
I slept like a baby the first night I used it but the sceptic in me put it down to the fact that I was exhausted. I kept a log so that I would remember how well I slept and it turns out I slept incredibly well the next night, and the next and the next. I mean, at what point does it stop being coincidence!
I have a long neck (that I’m very grateful for) and I didn’t realise that it wasn’t being supported. I love pillows that fluffy so I used to pile a few up high and although it felt great to sleep on initially, they didn’t stay piled up throughout the night. I have only just now realised that the reason I was waking up throughout the night was actually to adjust my pillows.
With the Formtastic pillow this just isn’t happening anymore and I’m sleeping through the night.
I waited almost a whole month before I wrote up this review so that I could be completely honest about it. During this time, I slept without my pillow for just two nights and I really felt the difference. It’s made a huge impact on my sleep and without sounding too dramatic, it’s changed my life!
I love a good guarantee. It shows that the brand really believe in themselves and what they’re doing. Formtastic offer customers a 100 sleeps guarantee where if you’re not satisfied, you can return it any time for a no-quibbles full refund.
When I’ve talked to people about how much I love this pillow. I’m met with excitement which quickly fades to being disappointed because memory foam pillows are generally very highly priced. Luckily I’m able to perk everyone right up again because the Formtastic pillow is just £29.87.
The pillow can be purchased directly through Amazon and if you have Prime, it will arrive the next day!
