Honest Review: Memory Foam PIllow

Hi there! My name is Aly, and today I’m going to be talking about my experiences with insomnia and how a special memory foam pillow helped.

Being a mum, I tend to suffer from stress and anxiety. It got so bad at one point that it eventually led to insomnia. I couldn’t sleep properly and I became irritable and cranky all of the time. It affected not only how I felt, but how I was acting towards my friends and family.

One day, when my sister was visiting me, she made a really good point. She told me, “your pillow is awful! No wonder you’re so miserable.” Everything seemed to click and I realized that I needed an upgrade.

I did some Googling and found a brand that is committed to providing a therapeutic and rejuvenating experience with all of its products, including their memory foam pillow. I’m talking about kalmkoala™!

Why kalmkoala™?

So, you’re asking why I chose kalmkoala™ over countless other brands of memory foam pillows out there? Well, the number one reason is what the brand stands for. A lot of their products are eco-friendly since they use bamboo, which is a renewable resource.

I was also drawn to this brand because of the many positive reviews it was getting for being comfortable and sustainable. Being someone who appreciates our planet and wants to make a positive impact, I thought that this would be the right decision.

Kalm PIllow

The Kalm Pillow has a really cool feature that has really helped me a lot: it is 100% customisable. I don’t just mean aesthetically––the Kalm Pillow contains 100% microfibre shredded memory foam that you can remove to adjust the height and firmness of the pillow.

 This means anyone––regardless of how soft or hard they enjoy their pillow, or even in what position they sleep in––can enjoy the comfort of a memory foam Pillow.

First Impressions

Before I go on to talk about the actual memory foam pillow, I just wanted to say how excited I was to see the shipment arrive in just a few days. Normally I’d be sitting at my laptop or on my phone, watching the shipment info update slowly. It was nice to see kalmkoala™ deliver (literally) on their promise.

I unpackaged my Kalm Pillow and played around with the filling for a bit until it felt just right. Then, it was time to test it out. As soon as I put my head on the pillow, I felt so zen and relaxed. The memory foam fit perfectly in the curve of my neck.

It was so relaxing, that I didn’t even realize when I fell asleep. That night, I had one of the most restful and relaxing sleeps I’ve had in a long time.

The Results

After using the Kalm Pillow the first night, I felt groggy, but not in a bad way. It was more in the sense that my body was just so loose and relaxed, like I finally rested after working hard for so long.

As the days went on, I only felt rejuvenated and rested. I saw my energy levels rise and found myself being more enjoyable to be around. People were complimenting me about my renewed joyfulness. 

I didn’t think that a pillow would be able to impact me so much, but it’s incredible how much our bodies seem to betray us if not taken care of properly. I realized that I needed to listen to my body and look after it.

Final Thoughts

Overall, I am incredibly happy with the purchase of the Kalm Pillow. I’m no longer as stressed and anxious as I used to be, because I look forward to resting at night. My insomnia has improved significantly and I am able to sleep for the majority of the night again.

If you’re also like me, a student who’s finding themselves stressed and anxious, then I recommend trying a new memory foam pillow. You might surprise yourself with the results.
