When it comes to buying appliances and choosing furniture, many of us make it a point to do research and even compare price points. Are you the type of homeowner who visits showrooms and stores just to test the product before actually buying it? You are not alone! However, aside from being meticulous when it comes to big pieces, we should also be careful when shopping for essential furnishings like pillows. Since we use these pieces on a daily basis, it’s important that we have the right set at home. Do you often wake up with a stiff neck or an early bout with allergies? Your pillows might be part of the problem.

If you’re ready to make a change and invest in the right one, visit Gourdo’s and enjoy a comfy feast! The store recently introduced the Sleepcare Pillow Buffet, a campaign that promotes the various pillows they have on shelves. Whether you’re looking for a hotel-quality piece or a fluffy companion that can help you sleep better, the store has it. To help you make a choice, here are seven pillows worth checking out:

Anti-Dust Mite, Anti-Bacterial Pillow

Your pillows can be a breeding ground for bacteria. If you don't air it out or change the covers regularly, it can cause rashes and allergies.

The Sleepcare Pillow—available in King, Queen, and Kids sizes—has polyester fiber filling that's specially treated to kill dust mites and bacteria. Opt for this hypoallergenic must-have to keep the bedroom safe as well as prevent the spreading of air-transmitted disease and the development of respiratory problems.

The Sleepcare Pillow is available in different sizes: King (P800), Queen (P625), and Kids (P450)

Aromatherapy Pillow

Do you often find yourself tossing and turning at night? If you find it hard to get some sleep, you might need a scent boost! Ergonomically shaped and available in five variants, the Aromatherapy Pillow also gives anti-microbial and hypoallergenic protection. Get the rest you need, improve your well-being, and relish the scent of Lavender and Rose. The store will soon add Jasmie, Plumeria, and White Ginger to the collection.

Hotel Atelier Pillow

Have you always wanted one of those hotel-quality pillows that you only get to enjoy during trips? Indulge in unparalleled comfort with the Hotel Atelier pillow. Hypoallergenic and with a 200 thread count, it's the best reward after a long day at work.

Hotel Pillow

Meanwhile, those looking for the ultimate luxurious treat can count on the Hotel Pillow with a 300 thread count. Similar to the Hotel Atelier Pillow, it's designed to relieve pressure points. These two are soft to the touch but durable to last for years.

Memory Comfort Pillow

Over time, our pillows seem to lose its form and become flat. With the Memory Comfort Pillow, you are assured of a cushy feel and an ideal neck support with its contour shape. It also has a memory foam filling that adjusts to your head's weight and temperature. The best thing about this pillow is it helps maintain the correct alignment of your spine and neck, while reducing sleep apnea and snoring.

Memory Gel Pillow

In a country like ours, it's sometimes inevitable to wake up sweating and feeling hot. To give you utmost comfort as you enjoy your deep slumber, the Memory Gel Pillow has gel-infused memory foam that reduces thermal contact thereby improving airflow and reducing heat. Non-toxic and hypoallergenic, this must-have also has an ergonomic contour that offers head and neck support as the memory foam maximizes pressure distribution evenly.

Professional Pillow

According to industry expert Quentin Chan, we have to support the spine in two different ways when sleeping—on the back and on the side. The customizable Professional Pillow offers the right support for the head and neck. It features two sides at different neck lengths, allowing you to choose the side that fits perfectly against your neck and shoulder area.

The Professional Pillow comes with an occipital pad—a removable piece that allows you to adjust your neck at the right angle so your muscles can relax. Make sure you check out the pillow selector in the store before heading to the cashier. It measures the thickness of the pillow you need when sleeping on your side or on your back to ensure comfort and ease.

The Professional Pillow is available in different sizes (from 3" to 5" thickness), P3, 500

The Sleepcare Pillow Buffet is available at Sleepcare stores in Alabang Town Center and Glorietta; Gourdo's in Uptown Mall, The Fort, SM Megamall Mega Fashion Hall, Trinoma, Greenbelt, Gateway Mall, Robinsons Magnolia, and The Promenade; and Living Well at The Podium, and SM Mall of Asia and SM Aura Premier.
