FACE + HAIR | SILK SLIP™ BEAUTY PILLOWCASE

Posted by on

IS YOUR PILLOWCASE AGING YOU?

  

NOTHING HAUNTS US LIKE THE THINGS WE DIDN'T BUY

This is my #1 product. I have never purchased a beauty product that has been useful and I look forward to every evening! It's silk. Part of designing your world is your surroundings. It's trite to say a product will make you feel beautiful, but this really does. Part of life is surrounding your home, your sanctuary, with materials that inspire you to feel your best. It says you deserve this because I am worth it ;) The different colors and patterns allow you to express your intuitive design. 

It protects you from wrinkles. It's fine luxury caressing and kissing your face. Your face doesn't slide off as satin does, it's just purrfect... ahhh :) Your hair shines, doesn't knot, and you don't get bedhead. I used to sleep on a silk scarf, learning so many beauty gems from my Japanese grandma. When I found out Slip made high-quality pillowcases at a reasonable price ($85), "I'm sold." When it comes to your body, saving up for quality is good motivation. They come in all colors and cool limited edition patterns. My current favorite is the Slip Zebra sold exclusively at Bloomingdales. 

 

You can find them on sale during April, it went as low as $66 for a standard queen size. If you purchase it directly from the Slip website, they offer promo codes for signing up.  

LET'S GET TO THE POINT 

What it is |
A standard queen-size pillowcase made of the highest grade mulberry silk for the ultimate beauty sleep.

What it is formulated to do | 
Traditional pillowcases don’t slip, and over time, this causes damage to delicate facial skin and hair. Cotton scratches and tugs on skin and grabs and twists hair, resulting in visible premature stretching, sleep creases, damaged hair, and bedhead by morning. Slip™ silk is so gentle, it allows skin and hair to glide across the surface—protecting and hydrating skin, reducing split ends, and ensuring a longer-lasting blowout. Made using a trade secret production method developed over 10 years, Slip silk pillowcases provide the ultimate combination of shine, thickness, softness, and durability.


What else you need to know |
Slip™ silk is natural, hypoallergenic, dust mite-resistant, and allows skin to breathe, unlike synthetic satin (polyester) which sweats, essentially negating the benefits. It does not contain toxic dyes and is recommended by dermatologists, plastic surgeons, hairdressers, and beauty experts.


Cotton is very absorbent. It can hold up to 27 times its own weight in water and it draws moisture away from your skin and hair. When you sleep on silk, delicate facial skin is more hydrated in the morning and hair becomes healthier over time. Cotton pillowcases also cause sleep creases, which go away later that day but can cause fine lines and wrinkles over time.

 

The better you care for your Slip™ pillowcase

THE BETTER IT WILL CARE FOR YOU

The product label says you can machine wash on a gentle cycle, cool setting (under 30° C) in a care bag inside out, using a mild detergent. If you want your silk case to last longer, hand wash it. Add water to a bowl, pour a little bit of white vinegar and hand wash it in the bowl. Let it sit for 20 minutes. Rinse your silk thoroughly through running cool water. Lay a clean bath towel down, lay the silk on top, lay another bath towel on top. This will prevent it from looking wrinkled. Let it air dry. Your pillowcase will look like new and stay durable for longer.
