Shhh Silk Travel Size Silk Pillow Review: Your New Go-To Travel Essential

I’ll admit this travel item seemed a little unnecessary at first, but once I tried a silk pillowcase at home, I knew I had to have a travel-sized version. So I tried the Shhh Silk Travel Size Silk Pillow. Here’s how it went.

Shhh Silk Travel Size Silk Pillow Review:

Price and Where to Buy: $149 on Shhh Silk’s website.

Shhh Silk Travel Size Silk Pillow Rates:

  • Usefulness: 9/10. Silk is naturally hypoallergenic, so it’s a great travel pillow for anyone with sensitive skin. There are also other benefits to sleeping on silk: The fabric keeps your skin cooler and it leaves your hair nice and smooth (goodbye, frizz) in the morning. I sometimes even take the full-size pillowcase and use it on hotel pillows during a trip.
  • Value: 7/10. While silk travel pillows are on the more expensive side, this one is comparable to other silk pillowcases on the market.
  • Portability: 10/10. The travel pillow comes with a handy drawstring carry case that has its own zippered compartment. If you’re traveling with just the pillowcase, it packs completely flat.
  • Durability: 9/10. You can machine wash the pillowcase on a gentle, warm cycle. The fabric is high-quality, 100 percent silk.
  • Cool Factor: 10/10. Now that I’ve tried it, I prefer sleeping on silk over cotton. Plus, Shhh Silk has two chic marble patterns that are pretty stylish.

Final Verdict: If you’re looking to travel with a little luxury and you like your beauty rest, then consider treating yourself to a silk travel pillow or silk pillowcase. It makes a huge difference.
