Say Goodnight to Nightsweats + Migraines with
the PolarGel Cool Pillow Mat


When I started to have nightsweats in 2006, there was nothing that could keep me cool at night short of a floor fan blowing right on me.  Had I had the PolarGel Cool Pillow Mat, I might have been much more comfortable.  

I don’t know how this product works, I only know that when I lay my head on my pillow at night, my face is cool.  It’s just that easy.  I’m not hot.  I don’t have nightsweats.  It’s a miracle.

I place my PolarGel Cool Pillow Mat on my pillow and secure it with the two enclosed elastic straps.  Then I place them both in the pillow case.  That’s all there is to it.  

It’s nothing like the CHILLOW Pillow Cooling Pad, which you have to fill with water.  You don’t have to worry about leaks in your bed.  

The PolarGel Cool Pillow Mat stays cool for about 3 hours after you lay down.  While it has 3 sections of PolarGel, it was my impression that once a section got warm, it never did cool off again.  There were some nights that I had to pull it out of my pillow because it was too warm.

I did find that the elastic straps that are meant to hold the PolarGel Cool Pillow Mat in place did so from end to end on the pillow, but that it still would roll around to the bottom of the long edge of my pillow, so that, if I woke up in the middle of the night, I would have to readjust it.

I really love the premise of the PolarGel Cool Pillow Mat.  It would be great for short-term cooling for falling asleep or for people dealing with a migraine headache.  No worrying about dealing with ice packs, melting ice, and condensation running down your face.

I would really love to see it have a longer lasting effect.  If you don’t wake up at night, then this will probably work for you.  I’m not totally writing this product off, because it really does help make falling asleep much easier.  And, perhaps the answer is to buy two and swap them when you wake in the middle of the night.  I really is an answer to the menopausal woman’s prayers.

What do you do to combat nightsweats or migraines?
