Guess who is now the owner of a JuveRest sleep wrinkle pillow? After talking about buying one since last year, I finally went ahead and did it. And although I said I would wait 30 days before writing a review, I have decided to do a night by night JuveRest sleep wrinkle pillow review instead.
I have decided to do a JuveRest sleep wrinkle pillow review on a night by night basis because I have so much to say about my first night of use, I didn’t want to wait to write a review after 30 nights of use.
My JuveRest sleep wrinkle pillow arrived yesterday. I won’t say I was excited necessarily. After all, it’s just a pillow; but I was happy that it had arrived because I was anxious to get re-started on my mission to train myself to sleep on my back in the hope that back sleeping will help me slow down the aging process and improve my appearance from the damage over the last several years of not being able to sleep at night.
Here are some pictures that I took before opening the box to unveil the pillow that was, according to the JuveRest website, designed by a board-certified plastic surgeon. The pillow that, again according to the JuveRest website, “is an easy-to-use, non-invasive wrinkle solution that minimizes facial wrinkles caused by compression from pillow contact during sleep”.
Nice packaging right? I was definitely impressed with the packaging of the Juverest sleep wrinkle pillow. But beyond that I have to be completely honest with you. This pillow is not worth $160. It is highway robbery. Now, let me explain that I am not commenting on what the pillow can and cannot do because I’ve just received it and have only used it for one night. My comment about the pillow now being worth $160 is entirely based on the quality of the product.
I was significantly underwhelmed once I opened the blue box and removed the pillow. In fact, I was more than underwhelmed. I was appalled. Because I immediately recognized that what I had removed from the box was by no stretch of the imagination a $160 product.
The JuveRest sleep wrinkle pillow is basically just a sponge that is cut out in a design to facilitate the purpose it is designed to serve. There is nothing about the pillow I received that makes it worth the $160 price tag in my opinion.
Now, I will admit that a huge part of what made the pillow look shoddy was the case in which it came; but that doesn’t change the reality that there’s nothing about this pillow that, again in my personal opinion, makes it worthy of the $160 price tag with which it comes.
And here’s the part of my JuveRest sleep wrinkle pillow review that I really wanted to talk about. When I was reviewing other people’s reviews about this pillow, one of the main complaints that I came across was that the pillow has a bad smell. I was hoping not to have the same experience, but my JuveRest Pillow smelled like it had been sitting in a dank warehouse for a long time. It doesn’t really make sense to me that a brand new pillow would have such an old smell. And it isn’t a slight smell by any means. It’s pretty strong; but at least it did not trigger a headache like strong unpleasant smells tend to do.
Despite the smell, I tried out the pillow last night. It wasn’t particularly comfortable; but I made it through the night using it, and I have to say that as far as back sleeping goes, I did find it useful. And that is the purpose for which I purchased the pillow. The only way I was able to use it was by sleeping on my back. It was too uncomfortable sleeping on my side so anytime I turned on my side and fell asleep it didn’t take long before I woke up from being too uncomfortable. And each time that I woke up I settled back on my back to use the back sleeping part of the pillow. So I slept mostly on my back last night, which is a good thing. That’s why I bought the pillow, so if it actually helps with that beyond my first night’s trial, I imagine I can overlook all the other things. I’ve sprayed it down with Lysol disinfecting spray in the hope that it will smell a little less bad tonight.
But I’ll be honest with you, I was seriously thinking about packing up the pillow and returning it today because of the price. I really think that the pillow is way over priced and I would never recommend anyone to spend that kind of money on it. The packaging makes it look like you’re getting something of high quality but what’s inside the box really doesn’t have a quality of luxury to it.
I’m not sure on what basis the makers of the JuveRest sleep wrinkle pillow determined to set the pillow at such a high price point. I don’t want to accuse them of intentionally trying to mislead the consumer, but I definitely think they have taken a very basic product and created hype around it, packaged it to make it look like a high quality product and priced it accordingly. It’s upsetting to me because I definitely cannot afford to spend $160 on a pillow, but I did spend $160 on this pillow because I fell for the story and the packaging.
I’m not saying in the long run the JuveRest pillow might not help me. It did definitely help me to sleep on my back last night and that’s why I bought it. Because I do believe that sleeping on my back helps me look better in the morning.
For now I will close my night one JuveRest sleep wrinkle pillow review by saying, if you are thinking about purchasing a beauty pillow, spend some time doing your research to make sure you buy the right pillow for you. The JuveRest people claim on their website that the JuveRest sleep wrinkle pillow is “THE BEST INVESTMENT FOR LONG-TERM SKIN CARE”. That is quite a claim. As a new owner I cannot agree or disagree. It seems unlikely that a pillow could ever be the best investment for long term skin care; but who knows? Maybe in 30 days I will write my final JuveRest sleep wrinkle pillow review, and in it, I will be singing the praises of this product.
