As my girlfriends can attest, I have always had a penchant for satin/silken materials. Beginning with a hideous purple satin quilt given to me by my first boyfriend, I got used to sleeping with a material that keeps the body warm but has cold refreshing spots as well. I dragged that blanket to college and it became a sorority wide joke. I won’t even repulse you with the scarce number of times I washed the blanket as I was on a college budget. Post college, the infamous blanket took up residence in my first apartment. I even think it might have scared away the booty calls. I did not care as my blankie loved me unconditionally. My first acting client I ever signed somehow heard about the blanket; She must have been in collusion with my roommate. For my birthday, she gifted me with a brand new hot pink satin blanket. I was touched and closed my eyes as I let my roommate remove the tattered purple blanket from the premises.
Years later, I became engaged to Husband. I enlisted my ten besties as bridesmaids and for thank you gifts, I surpised them with matching personalized champagne colored satin blankets. I swear, I could have kept the blanket maker in business forever. (if you are reading this RR, please start making blankets again….)
Ten years later, I am married with kids and I get a weekly blow dry. Hair texture changed dramatically after pregnancy and I simply have no control over my hair. I always read that sleeping on silk pillowcases was like a nightly facial and the best life preserver for blow drys. I spent months researching these magic pillow cases but was never satisfied with the ones I tried.
Until BEAUTY SILKZ…..Two brilliant girls researched and invented the best silk pillow case I have ever used. Did they recover my purple blanket from some dark abyss and cut it into pillowcases? Pretty damn close! After much effort, the girls created a pillowcase made of 100% silk charmeuse which is the “best kept beauty secret in the world.” Comprised of natural proteins and essential amino acids and a natural cellular albumen (whatever that is), the skin and hair is magically nourished. The pillow case does not absorb moisture or night creams. ”Instead, it acts as a natural barrier hydrating skin and hair while you sleep, unlike cotton, which absorbs moisture. You wake up with a smoother, more radiant skin and softer hair.” Additionally, it prevents hair breakage and thinning. Finally, the case is affordable ($19.99), hypoallergenic, machine washable, and does not slip around the bed because one side is made of cotton.
Intrigued? I was! I have been sleeping on this pillow case for the last month and I am hooked. Clearly, I was onto something back in the 80′s with my satin blanket. www.beautysilkz.com
