Silk contains 16 amino acid, and absorbs less moisture from your skin
and hair than other materials like cotton. This means your skin retains
more moisture, leaving it soft and helping reduce wrinkle lines. It also
keeps your hair looking healthy and shiny. This silk pillowcase is the
best kept beauty secret of Hollywood Celebrities!!
Average Price: $79.99
I have always wanted to try a proper silk pillowcase since beauty experts often say you'll wake up looking better than with your plain old cotton pillow case. The theory is that as we sleep (and in my case toss and turn), it causes wrinkles and breakage in your hair. I'd love to sleep perfectly still on my back but it's not going to happen.
These pillow cases are made with Mulberry silk, which is obtained from the cocoons of mulberry silkworms kept in captivity. It's a pretty expensive and luxurious material. I was very lucky to get mine for free from the brand because I yelped out loud when I saw the price. But now that I think of those silkworms working so hard to make this for me, I can appreciate why the price is what it is.
The packaging is beautiful. It comes in a nice box, tied with a ribbon. As for the texture it is not slippery like I imagined it would be. It feels a bit more coarse than I thought it would, but it is very comfortable to sleep on. I have very sensitive skin and it doesn't bother my face at all. In fact I have noticed in the mornings that I have less of a crease on my forehead than I normally do. I actually really like this pillowcase. I always invest in high thread count cotton but this is a step above.
I think this would make a really thoughtful gift for someone or a nice treat for yourself if you're feeling generous.
