Holistic SilkSilk Pillowcase Cream<p>The sumptuously smooth surface of Holistic Silk's hypoallergenic Silk Pillowcase with lavender offers a bounty of beauty benefits – from the youth-boosting to the mane-maintaining. While cotton is an absorbent fibre, silk doesn't soak up the precious moisture and oils from your face and hair as you sleep – hence your night creams get the opportunity to do what they’re supposed to and your skin is protected. As sleep is a crucial time of rest and repair, the clever case also helps to prevent your complexion from developing ‘sleep creases’, which, in turn, can prevent lines from deepening. The surface of the pillow is also decadently soft, which prevents hair from snagging and in turn, protects against split ends, breakage and tangles for a longer lasting blow dry and princess-worthy shine.</p>HOL001 Cream5 stars, based on7 reviews80.00Cult BeautyNew
Naturally dyed and hypoallergenic, these protective, age-defying silk pillowcases are not only beautifully smooth, they also help to slow down the onset of fine lines and wrinkles. The beautiful (seemingly ageless!) Catherine Zeta Jones and Selma Hayek are amongst the cohort of reported fans of these ultra-covetable cases – what better advertisement do you need? Dust and house mites don't like to live in silk, so these are brilliant for those who suffer from allergies too and, if you’re a fan of a good blow dry, these even help to maintain your mane as you slumber. A product that helps keep us beautiful without ANY effort at all? We’ll have one in every colour, thanks.

How to use
Lay your head on the pillow and fall asleep. Machine Washable on very gentle wash, but hand washing does extend the life of the pillowcase.
A well made pillow case, washes well, seems a little more long lasting than other brands I have purchased, so well worth the money spent.
Very shiny and smooth!
I love this pillow - it really stops my damaged hair from getting too tangled at night. It's quite shiny, and the cream version almost looks gold, so if you like that, it's even better!
Princess without a pea
Since I first heard that sleeping on silk helps preserve one's youthful complexion I've tried a couple of different brands and they didn't last long in the rough and tumble of my life.
I don't have time to handwash my pillowcases, so even though it's not recommended I put them in the washing machine on a cool wash (I do the same for my cashmere and it's fine!) and the Holistic silk ones have stood the test of time they are nice and thick. They have a satin finish, so feel very soft on your cheeks.
I notice the difference in facial creasing when I've slept somewhere that doesn't have a silk pillowcase (hotels etc) so I feel that this really works on me. Plus now sleeping on anything else feels like roughing it.
Not worth it
I do not actually see a difference in the mornings. However, the pillow case is comfy and I'll keep it because I have a pillow that fits the size.
I think it's too pricey and you pay for the fancy packaging it comes in. It's also way smaller than a normal pillow, so you might have to get a smaller pillow for the case...
Fewer wrinkles than my mother
I wouldn't have paid £40 for a pillow case on my own, but my daughter gave me this one about 3 years ago. I agree with Joanna that it could be a little bigger - it doesn't quite fit my pillow which is itself on the small side.
But I have slept on it for nearly 1000 nights (I take it with me whenever I go away), and I have worn it out! And am therefore buying a new one for myself. It is absolutely lovely to sleep on, being soft and smooth and I never wake up with extra wrinkles. Plus I know it does my hair good as well. All in all, a seriously good investment.
Reviews comments..I had been reading and hearing about how wonderful silk pillowcases are and felt like it was time to give it ago. The benefits I wanted it for were
Great for your hair and doesn't cause it to go frizzy or static-y while you sleep
Doesn't tug at your skin so it won't cause pre-mature wrinkling
Given that I'm a side sleeper, I frequently wake up with creases running down the side of my face. Pretty embarrassing too, sometimes they end up pretty deep and I show up at my job an hour after waking up with a crease on my cheek.
How else do silk pillowcases claim to be of help?
Repels dust mites
Non-absorbent material will not soak up your expensive skin care
Prevents snagging of hair
The pillowcase arrived (I bought it in white) with a sachet of dried lavender flowers to promote sleep (which I didn't use).
Small on size
The size is 67cm x 45cm (not listed on site), and was a little small for my pillow. The underside is sort of stretched with my pillow threatening to bust out. Well, it hasn't. I just sleep on the top side and that's fine.
I also use my regular pillow protector under the case, so if I took that out it won't be so bulky inside the silk case.
