My daughter had her 16th birthday in the summer holidays and I wanted to make it extra special for her. I recently became aware that sleeping on silk can supposedly be really great for your hair. I was therefore delighted to get the opportunity of reviewing a This is Silk half silk tie pillowcase. This is not a full pillowcase but has the side of the pillowcase that you sleep on. My daughter chose to have a pink one, but this is also available in tempest grey and natural white. I think that all of the colours look wonderful and I would find it hard to choose a colour if choosing myself. I would be tempted to buy a couple of different colours, probably tempest grey and pink.
The product arrived quickly in perfect condition. My daughter is delighted with it and she uses it a lot. To explain, she has beautiful wavy hair and I think that this product is really helping her keep her hair in great condition. It also does not take up much room so would be perfect for taking away on a short break or to a sleepover at a friend’s house.
On the This is Silk website it says ‘Our silk has been chosen for its ability to soften skin and smoothe hair as well as its thick lustre and the quality of the fabric.’ I would agree with these claims. In fact I really want a silk pillow cover myself. One of the things I love most about the product is how versatile it is. You can tie it in different ways to use it on different types of pillow. I think that this would be fantastic used tied around a travel pillow on a plane, train or coach journey, especially in a situation where you are heading to a work meeting or social event.
This pillow case is 75cm x 50cm and has 4 ties on the back which are how the pillow case is secured to a pillow. The website has the following information on it about the pillow case:
- It helps with fine lines and sleep creases on your face
- It is perfect for teenagers or for travelling
- It helps your facial serums work harder at night
- It is machine washable
- Incredibly soft and lustrous skin for delicate facial skin
- It calms frizz and prevents unmanageable bedhead
- It is free of harmful dyes and products which makes it particularly good for sensitive skin, Oekotex certified
- It comes packaged in an organza bag
I would agree that it is perfect for teenagers or for travelling. I do also like that it is free of harmful dyes and products. I think that the fact it comes in an organza bag makes it perfect to give straight to someone as a gift.
Our reviewers have been fortunate enough to review several This is Silk products. You can read the reviews here.
I would recommend this product as well as This is Silk as a brand to others. I think that this product and so many others on their website would make a fantastic Birthday, ‘Just because’ or Christmas gift. I think that the RRP of £25.99 represents excellent value because of how much my daughter loved the product, its quality and its usefulness.
This product can be purchased from the This Is Silk website here.
