Silk Pillowcase?

21 replies

WineGetsMeThroughIt · 05/05/2021 22:24

Can anyone recommend a good quality silk pillowcase that stops your face from creasing up by the time the morning rolls around? I wake up with such deep pillowcase creasing ok my face now that they can take up to an hour to fade away 🤦🏼‍♀️

Is it possible to get a good quality double sided one for less than £40?

Watching with interest, hoping a silk pillowcase will help me avoid the crispy hair bird's nest every morning

I found that a silk pillow case didn’t make any difference to me, but a silk eye mask has. I usually wake up with two diagonal lines cutting through my eyebrows, but they have pretty much gone since I started wearing the mask (just a cheap one from Amazon)

I think slip does them

I have satin pillow cases

I bought one from amazon. It's great for my hair, no more bed hair. I sleep on my front /face, no more crease marks on the side of my face!

I have a lovely one from John Lewis, it was £45 though

Silkytots. They do a few different patterns and are quite reasonable at £45. There's a option to sign up to their newsletter which will get you a discount code or freebie.

DH and I have one each, I got a mate one for Xmas, and she in turn got her mum one, so it's safe to say they're pretty good quality!

I have lilysilk pillowcases, they're lovely and reasonably priced (c£29), I have eczema and these are much better for my skin.

I use an eBay store direct from Vietnam. SpiritsofVietnam. Double sided 25 momme silk pillowcase with a zip. Usually cost around £20. Excellent quality.

I tried Satin but they were too slippery and I kept falling off the pillow.

wingsnthat · 05/05/2021 23:18

This happens? I can honestly say I have never experienced this with any pillowcase

I have the expensive slip silk pillowcases. I can’t say whether they are worth the cost yet but they look good, feel comfortable and wash well so I can’t complain. I think my hair is less tangled in the morning. I don’t think it’s made any difference to my face though but I never experienced creasing to begin with

Jas1985 · 05/05/2021 23:19

I have a silk one from a company called onlycurls. It was £40 but it’s lovely quality, washes well and their customer service is great. It doesn’t have that shiny slippery feeling you get on cheaper satin ones either

I have a slip one that I gave to my mum. I bought a much cheaper one from Amazon and it's amazing. It doesn't do much for my face but my hair is less static and out of control in the morning

Lily silk

KeyboardWorriers · 05/05/2021 23:42

I bought some from John Lewis to help with my hair. They have definitely reduced /eliminated morning face creases too

cardoon · 06/05/2021 00:11

ZIMASILK is my favourite one from amazon £23'ish

Mrstwiddle · 06/05/2021 01:50

John Lewis, I picked up a new one on eBay for £30 and it is definitely worth it. On a cotton pillowcase, face creases the next day can last hours for me!

Mrstwiddle · 06/05/2021 01:51

Haven’t noticed a huge difference to hair though.

Grohlsguitar · 06/05/2021 01:55

I buy satin ones on Amazon and really like them. I'd like silk even more, but it's not cruelty free.

ToManderleyAgain · 06/05/2021 05:05

I had one from John Lewis that I ruined by accidentally putting it through a hot wash and then the tumble drier. It’s now falling apart. If you have form for this type of behaviour then I wouldn’t get a spendy version!

I used one from Morton Mulberry Silk and they are amazing. Haven't tried them from anywhere else but would highly recommend trying one.

Here are the ones I bought:
