Review: Sleep Cool With Casper’s Snow Technology Foam Pillow

I’m thrown myself under the bus once in the story I wrote about Casper’s Hyperlite Sheets and I’m about to do it again. Alongside the sheets I’ve had since elementary school, I’m also using some of the same pillows I’ve had since I was a wee tot, too.

Shame me. I deserve it.

Seriously though, the pillows on my bed are old as hell, but I’ve always thought they were doing their job just fine. Sleepless nights were regular, that was just the way I slept. I didn’t even take into consideration that my pillows could have been the problem for long nights staring at the ceiling to pass the hours until the sun rose.

That was until I recently let myself get a couple of new ones after my go-to since childhood started ripping from all ends.

Now, I think there’s a solid chance I own the best pillow of all time: Casper’s Foam Pillow with Snow Technology.

At a Glance:

  • Standard and king sizes
  • Casper’s most supportive pillow
  • Cooling properties
  • Super soft
  • 30-night risk-free trial

Why Buy a $139 Pillow?

Believe me when I say it, I’m absolutely not the kind of person to let myself splurge on something like a pillow. As I said, I’ve been using the same pillows for the past 15 years. If there’s no need to replace something, I’m simply not going to — especially when that price point makes my eyes open a little wider.

But, ever since I got the chance to try out Casper’s Hyperlite Sheets, something hit me like a brick wall: why would I not want the best night’s sleep I could possibly get? As per the National Library of Medicine, we spend one-third of our entire lives asleep. Why settle for anything less than the best of it affects that much of our life?

I’m typically a hot sleeper. If I wake up in the middle of the night, I’m pulling off every blanket on my body and flipping the pillow to the other side. When I read that this pillow was built with “Snow Technology”, I had no idea what that meant, but I was intrigued as can be. Upon reading further, this pillow seemed to be ideal for those of us that are hot sleepers.

That’s why I went ahead and said yes to the Casper Foam Pillow with Snow Technology. The $139 price tag was exceptionally daunting, but if it was anything like the sheets, I knew it was going to be more than worth it.


Why Is It Great For Hot Sleepers?

The cool side of the pillow? Both sides when it comes to Snow Technology.

For those of us suffering from nighttime overheating, Casper built this pillow with HeatDelete™ Bands alongside a cool-to-the-touch exterior layer that fights to snatch heat away from your head and neck.

In addition, this pillow also uses Casper’s AirScape™ foam, a luxuriously comfortable foam that ensures air stays circulating throughout the pillow as you sleep so you can stay cool all night long.

That said, the entire pillow is built to keep you both cool and comfortable at the same time no matter which side you’re using for 12+ hours of cool sleep.

Waking up sweaty? Well, not anymore. This is easily one of the best, if not the best cooling pillows for hot sleepers.


Am I Really Sleeping Better?

In short, absolutely. I’d borderline convinced myself I was living out The Princess and the Pea for months now, assuming my two-year-old mattress was the issue behind my sleep problems. But, I was completely wrong. It was the fact that I wasn’t using Casper. The sheets I mentioned tied together with this pillow have changed the way I sleep drastically.

Even if I wake up in the middle of the night (which does happen often, I mean, I live in New York City), I will go back to sleep seconds after because I’m so damn cozy. My head is propped in a way I haven’t experienced prior, the pillow is clearly not retaining any of the heat my head gives off and the three layers of supportive foam tossed inside is inevitably helping my neck and back support like no other.

It feels silly that a pillow can do so much for one night’s sleep, but at the same time, it doesn’t feel silly at all. The silliest thing of all is just how long it took me to realize how much my pillows affect my sleeping.

The Verdict: Splurge

Let me just cut to the chase here, if you’re a hot sleeper, you should purchase this pillow.

As someone who has constantly woken up sweating to death in discomfort the past few years with uncomfortable pillows, it’s safe to say that this pillow has changed my life. I couldn’t give it a better review.

So Should You Buy It?

Stupid question. Yes.

As mentioned, you spend one-third of your life in bed. Splurge on your bed. Make sure you’re having the comfiest night’s sleep you could possibly imagine. You deserve it.
