Technogel Review & Giveaway!

About a month ago I was reading Food, Fitness, and Family and learned about Technogel pillows because Madeline was doing a review and giveaway at the time. I had been hearing a ton of great things about these pillows through other FitFluential bloggers I follow and I even participated in a Twitter chat to learn more. Surprisingly, I ended up winning the Technogel pillow from Madeline’s blog! After Madeline put me in contact with Technogel to give them my contact information, they told me that I could give away a pillow to a lucky reader if I wanted. I thought that was so nice of them because it gave me the opportunity to “pay it forward” if I ended up liking the pillow I won! I was very excited to try it out.
Thankfully, I didn’t have to wait long. The box was at my doorstep about two days later! I quickly ripped open the packaging and started lounging on the couch with my new pillow! I was told it might take a couple days to get used to it as the pillow has a layer of gel, but I had no problems with it at all. It felt so nice!
There are so many wonderful things to say about this pillow, I don’t even know where to begin! Technogel has six different pillow options – Classic, Anatomic, Deluxe, Contour and two Travel pillows. I chose the Anatomic pillow since I sleep on my back and side. Because of the gel and memory foam layers, the pillow adapts to you. This decreases pressure in certain areas which is great if you happen to have any neck, back or shoulder injuries or pain. In addition, Technogel is part of the Dr. Scholl’s family. You know – the same company that makes those awesome shoe inserts and those catchy commercials? Even better? The materials that make up Technogel pillows are also used to make bicycle seat covers for guys like Lance Armstrong that are cycling for hours at a time! You’re probably thinking this pillow sounds like sleeping on a heavenly cloud now, no?!

I don’t really have any neck, shoulder or back pain, but this girl does love her sleep! The first few days after receiving this pillow, I was falling into such deep sleeps that I was sleeping straight through my alarm. I had to tweet Technogel and blame them for making me late for work! ;o) I also love the fact that the pillows have a cooling effect because of the gel. I can’t tell you how awesome this is right now as the air conditioning unit in my house is currently broken – yes, in Atlanta where it is already hitting the mid-80’s! Plus, my room is at the front of the house and for some reason it is always the coldest in the winter and the hottest in the summer. Now, I never have to flip my pillow over to the “cool side” ever again!
As I mentioned, Technogel is allowing me to pay it forward and share the love! I will be using Rafflecopter to select a winner of this contest. There seems to be some confusion.
