Fight Wrinkles As You Sleep: Sleep & Glow Pillow Review
Do you have sleep wrinkles? Let’s talk about my three favourite things anti-aging, beauty and sleep. I’ve spoken before about the importance of sleep when it comes to beauty and anti-aging. Sleep is by far the number one thing you need to be on top of if you want to take care of your health. It’s essential, that’s why it’s important to consider certain aspects that often get overlooked when it comes to sleep – like your pillow!
In this post, I will be reviewing the Sleep & Glow pillow from Omnia. An anti-aging pillow that claims to help prevent and fight against sleep wrinkles, all while giving you a deeper sleep! Sounds too good to be true, keep reading to find out more about this unique beauty pillow.
What is the Sleep & Glow Pillow?
The Sleep & Glow pillow is a patented pillow, made in collaboration with orthopaedist and cosmetologist. The design ensures a physiologically correct body and neck position during sleep. The pillow itself is made from memory foam and adjusts to the unique shape of your face, neck and shoulders. This takes time, so it’s important that you continually use the pillow for a minimum of 3 to 4-weeks before you actually start to experience the results.
The pillow is designed with a cradle for the face for sleeping on your side and one for the head when sleeping on your back. It also provides a cradle for your shoulder, neck support and designed to keep your head and your spine in alignment while you sleep. This design makes it’s perfect for sleeping on your side, or your back! The pillow also contains silver ions that have bacteriostatic, anti-viral and anti-fungal effects – bonus!
Benefits of Using the Sleep & Glow Pillow
According to Sleep & Glow here’s the benefits you’ll get from using the pillow for a minimum of 3-weeks:
- Younger Looking Skin – helps fight against the formation of sleep wrinkles
- Reduces Puffiness – helps fight morning puffiness via unique pillow design
- Deeper Sleep – the pillows anatomical shape provides you with ultimate comfort while sleeping, ensures you’re body position is physiologically correct while sleeping
- Natural Fabrics – made from 100% Tencel or natural silk, which will not absorb moisture and creams, reduces hair breakage and tangling and has a breathable, cooling effect.
Younger Looking Skin – Exactly What are Sleep Wrinkles?
Sleep wrinkles can occur from the simple act of sleeping. Pressure from the weight of the head can transfer to the skin of the face, folding it into these pressure areas. Overtime, sleep can result in repetitive skin compression that can worsen, especially for the delicate skin around the eyes and lips. Sleep wrinkles can be vertical, but may also be horizontal, particularly around the eyes. Sleeping can also cause more pressure on expression wrinkles – the wrinkles that result from muscular contraction, such as forehead lines and crows feet around the eyes.
I’m sure you’re more than familiar with the common solutions for wrinkles – my personal favourite Botox and fillers! These two will take care of most wrinkles – but not permanently! They’re both a good short-term solution. While Botox will last about 3-months, fillers will last a minimum of 6-months. Botox can relax tight muscles; fillers fill wrinkle lines with hyaluronic acid. These two work great, but when we sleep, the extra pressure can further reduce the length of time these solutions last.
For example, after injection, filler can be pushed out of the areas they’re injected, reducing the amount in the injected area and pushing it to other areas. Reducing effectiveness and the desired plump look!
Taking supplements such as collagen can also help. Collagen can help provide the building blocks for the structure of our skin, which can help reduce and prevent fine lines and wrinkles, while also increasing the softness and suppleness of the skin. There are also other anti-aging supplements that can help – go here!
In addition, using a good pillowcase can help minimize sleep wrinkles. Silk, satin or super soft, high thread count cotton can also help reduce friction between the skin and the pillow. In addition to these preventative measures, adding the right pillow will also help.

My Personal Experience with the Sleep & Glow Pillow
I have been using the Sleep & Glow pillow for 4-weeks, and I have to say I have a lot of positive things to say about using the pillow. I have used microfibre pillows in the past, but I found that they were either a bit too soft, or a bit too hard, and didn’t have the right design to fit my head. This pillow is definitely made for a woman. It’s smaller, and the cradle areas conformed to my head properly, especially after using for 1-month.
I’m a side sleeper, so I especially liked that I could sleep on my side comfortably with this pillow. I have Botox, fillers and threads in my face. Threads are not the most comfortable thing to have in your face, not to mention, you really shouldn’t sleep on your face when you get them done. They need time to heal, not something you want to put pressure on or have move around. The side face cradle allows me to sleep on my side comfortably without added pressure.
The other bonus for me, I have a few neck and spine alignment issues, from years of overtraining from fitness and stress! I’m waking up well rested, with less pain and less headaches than I have in the past.
I also have noticed I have less face puffiness, particularly around the eyes. This could be from a better quality sleep, overall but also from the sheer comfort of the pillow!
Pricey But Worth Every Penny
Now let’s talk price, this pillow is not cheap. It’s definitely premium and has premium value too. For the price tag of 200 USD, you’re not just getting any pillow; you’re getting a pillow that conforms to you personally. It’s not an off-the-shelf pillow, this pillow will form to your head and neck and support your unique body alignment; plus give you some amazing anti-aging benefits!
If you’re like me, willing to spend your money on botox, fillers, facials, and high-end beauty products to help reduce fine lines and wrinkles, then seriously consider trying out this pillow. It’s actually a small price to pay in comparison to what you can spend on other products, plus it will help sustain your other beauty habits!
