The Chillmax Pillow pad is a slim, blue gel-filled pad that will turn your ordinary warm pillow into a comfortable, cool one. You can either place this pad on top of a standard pillow or slide it into your pillowcase in order to remain cool at night. Unlike with some other pillow pads, you won't have to fill this one with water or chill it in the refrigerator or freezer before use. You'll also be able to wrap it around your neck or any other body part that's in need of some chilling.
The cost of Chillmax Pillow is $19.99 plus $6.95 shipping. The special TV offer allows you to receive a second Chillmax Pillow at the discounted price of only $6.95 for a total price of $33.89.

This pillow pad works by virtue of cool-gel technology. The gel within each one responds to pressure, so as soon as it detects pressure being put on it from your head or some other body part, it'll begin to cool down. As it cools down, it'll cool you down, too, or keep you cool if your body's already at a comfortably cool temperature. Pressure will always be enough to activate this gel's cooling qualities, so you'll never have to freeze or refrigerate it.
Each Chillmax Pillow pad comes in a bright shade a royal blue, a shade that not only looks attractive but makes one think of coolness.
All of these pillow pads are about the same size as a standard pillow, so any of them will rest comfortably on top of one. You'll also be able to slide yours into any standard-sized pillowcase without feeling like you're jamming it in. As a result, you won't have to stick to using your pillow pad with just one pillow or a select group of pillows.
On a related note, each of these pillow pads can be rolled up, making each one portable. Therefore, you'll be able to bring yours with you to a variety of places, such as your cottage, a friend's house or a hotel. As long as the pillows there are of a standard size, your pad won't be too large or too small to use with them. If you're only traveling a short distance to your new destination, you may even choose to walk with your pillow pad instead of transporting it in your vehicle.
Aside from being used as a tool to cool your pillow, your Chillmax Pillow pad will double as an ice pack that'll help you soothe an overly warm or sore neck, back or knee. You'll also be able to use it as a footrest for hot, sore feet—as soon as it detects pressure from your feet, it'll start the cooling process. Just as it can be rolled up, your pad can be bent in various directions, and it'll return to its original shape and size after you unfold it.
This pillow pad contains only gel, not water, so unless you take a pair of scissors or some equally sharp object to it, it won't leak. That means you'll be able to use it as a cushion in your vehicle or for exercise or meditation without worrying about it leaking all over your car, your floor or your furniture.
If you sweat while sleeping on a warm pillow, you might end up sweating all over that pillow and perhaps creating visible stains, depending on the pillow's shade. Fortunately, if you add a Chillmax Pillow pad to the outside of your pillow, it'll probably keep you cool enough that you won't sweat. In the event that you do end up sweating, the pad will soak up your sweat instead. Then you'll be able to quickly wipe the pad with a damp cloth in the morning instead of putting it in the washing machine.
Each pillow pad is made of soft, flexible material, so if you enjoy sleeping on a soft pillow, adding one of these pads to your pillow each night won't diminish your comfort level at all.
Naturally, when you're cool and comfortable while sleeping instead of feeling hot and sticky, you'll get a better sleep. You'll then wake up with more energy to start the day instead of wanting to press the snooze button 10 times. You also won't keep yourself up while you turn your pillow over and over to try and find a cool spot, or while you readjust a fan that's nearby.
If you sleep with a partner and tend to argue with them about how hot or cold the room should be, that'll be a thing of the past with your Chillmax. The person's who's usually too hot can put this pad on their pillow and immediately feel cool, while the person who enjoys a warmer temperature can go without one of these pads. Plus, if both of you ever feel too hot, getting a second Chillmax Pillow pad is an option.
It would be helpful if a deluxe size of this pillow pad could be made available, for people who'd prefer it to cover their entire extra-large pillow or body pillow. With a body-sized one, you'd be able to cool your entire body even more quickly, since you wouldn't have to wait for the coolness to be transferred from your head to the rest of you.
It's unlikely that this pillow pad could end up being ripped, but it's in the realm of possibility, especially if a dog or cat were to knead it with sharp claws. If your pillow pad were to rip, the gel inside would ooze out of it, and without the gel, it'd be virtually useless to you (except as maybe a seat cushion).
The Chillmax Pillow pad comes in just one shade of blue, and while this shade is attractive, some users might prefer a pillow pad in a different shade or one with a funky design. A child or teen, in particular, might be bored with basic bright blue.
If your Chillmax Pillow pad happens to get dirty, don't run it through the washing machine, as this could damage it and cause the gel inside to come out. Don't submerge it completely in water when you're hand-washing it, either—just use a damp cloth. You must also refrain from putting it in the dryer, as it could get damaged or change size due to the dryer's heat.
As mentioned, a pet's claws could puncture one of these pillow pads, so you should never let your cat or dog use one as a bed. Even if a pillowcase is covering your pillow pad, your pet shouldn't be sleeping on it, as their claws could still reach the pad. To keep a cat or dog cool on hot days, it's best to obtain a pad that's been specifically designed for pets.
