Silk pillowcases - worth it?

Just that, really! Do they really help with bed hair and creased face first thing?

I'm quite tempted by a set I've seen with accompanying silk eye mask, although that may be overkill Grin

Oh the glamour!

Definitely - silk pillow case plus matching eye mask here. Not a single face crease and beautifully smooth hair every morning.

Yes absolutely I love mine. I buy from ebay direct from Vietnam. I've just ordered some darker ones as my hair dye ruins the white ones I buy and I can't wash with anything too harsh.
Soft, smooth tangle free hair and no pillow creases on the face.

Silk or satin?

I have satin pillowcases that I used every night. We both have them, DH and I. I also have a satin eye mask. I must say I have never really noticed creases on my face anyway but I have curly hair and the pillowcase definitely helps keep frizz at bay.

I have an eye mask but I end up taking it off in my sleep.

I have had satin but they're too shiny for me, felt my pillow slipping too much.

I always use silk pillowcases. I just love them. They feel so lovely on my skin. And when I'm sleeping alone, I also wear a silk eye mask and a silk hair wrap. I'm a little obsessed!!! Definitely recommend though. I get mine from Ebay from an American seller. Best quality and good prices.

I also have a silk filled duvet plus silk duvet cover but it constantly slides off the bed as I'm a bit of a nightime wriggler.Blush I used to live in Asia so I'm addicted to silk and have quite a lot of silk I bought when I was there.

I love mine, it doesn't absorb all of my face creams and I wake up feeling like my skin has actually absorbed the stuff I put on. Plus it stays feeling cool to the touch, bliss!

Definitely worth the investment! Mine are from Lilysilk

They really help stop my curly hair getting too tangled and frizzy overnight. I use these ones, the underside is cotton so they're not too slippy:

I've been meaning to try these for ages, I've just ordered the Jasmine Silk ones with the cotton underside, thank you.
