My birthday is this week. I am feeling great about turning 35… but I am definitely noticing some… um… changes.
Fine lines and age spots are more noticeable. I made an appointment for botox about 6 months ago, but as the day approached I realized I was so freaking terrified that I canceled it. That’s not to say I will NEVER get botox… but I am way too chicken right now.
In the meantime, I have beefed up up my beauty routine. I’ve been trying to remember to put on eye cream and moisturizer. I got a Retin-A prescription since my dermatologist said it was good for collagen production… but every time I use it my face peels off. (I know people say just wait it out and it gets better… blah blah)
So when JuveRest offered to send me a anti-aging pillow, I was super excited. I know the way I sleep has to cause at least some of my face wrinkles. I am a side sleeper… and I know I smush my face up while I sleep. I have never been able to sleep face up. My husband does and I have always said to him he is so lucky that he can sleep that way, since it prevents him from getting wrinkles. So this pillow is made to encourage you to stay in a back sleeping position, and also has special cut outs even for side sleepers like me.
The pillow is a super soft and made of a foam material. I had read that the pillow takes some getting used to, but I didn’t find that to be the case. I thought it was really comfortable to sleep on in the face up position. For the first time ever I can fall asleep on my back! It’s crazy!
The side position however, felt a little weird in the beginning. It’s hard to get your face in the groove just right. Now if I turn on my side I don’t worry about the positioning, I just find the most comfortable spot.
The pillow costs about $180, which sounds like a lot. But in my opinion, a pillow is a good place to splurge since you sleep on it every single night, and a sucky pillow means a sucky night’s sleep. The last pillow I bought was a memory foam one that cost $120 and I’ve had it FOREVER! So I am going to continue using my JuveRest since it is comfy, and if it gives me less wrinkles in the long run… that will just be a bonus! (all the pics in this post were sent to me by JuveRest, since I thought a picture of myself “fake sleeping” on a pillow would just be weird)

JuveRest sent me a complementary pillow to facilitate this review, but you know all opinions are my own… and I DON’T mess around when it comes to a good night’s sleep!
