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.
