I use this for hot flushes at night. This pillow is really helpful in helping you to get off to sleep. It does lose its cooling effect after about 4 hours, but I just take it out of the pillow case when it starts to absorb the heat from my head. It's also good to keep it in the fridge for ad hoc uses at other times of the day, especially during hot weather.
This cool pillow is amazing especially with the hot summer we’re having, brilliant at night to sleep on (from the fridge not tried it yet straight from the freezer to sleep on ) helps me to sleep a lot better especially straight after chemo, also I sometimes my legs ach & swell a little so I’ve used the pillow from the freezer to help with this too Right now couldn’t be with out it
This cooling gel pillow is wonderful. It helps to alleviate the constant heat I experience from chemo. I wish it remained cooler for longer periods of time, but lasts long enough for me to fall asleep. The plus is that it re-" cools" rather quickly when placed on the freezer.
Fantastic product, worked a treat to cool my head. Wish it lasted longer. Another one I think :)
The pillow gets me off to sleep and I get about 4 hours uninterrupted until the flushes wake me up. I have to move the pillow about to find the cool area as the heat from my head heats up the pillow. I purchased this to help with the menopause hot flushes. I also take a hot water bottle with cold water into bed for my feet. I am willing to try anything to get some rest. Could do with one to carry about during the day as well.
This is a great mat that fits nicely under pillow case but the cooling comes through nicely.

I bought the gel o cooling pad for burns from radiotherapy. It was exactly what I needed. An excellent size, keeps cool for a long time. It's wipeable & easy to manipulate to reach all areas. I've slept much better with the relief this provides.
I had breast cancer in 2004, for which I had mastectomy, Chemo and radiotherapy. Since then I have always had hot flushes particularly at night. I have used several types of cool pillows but this has proved very effective. No fussing about just in the fridge and ready to use. Love it.
It took a while to get used to, but have had four nights now where I have had between 6 to 8 hours sleep, without waking up, plus no night sweat early in the morning. I would recommend these to anybody who suffers from lack of sleep, hot flushes and night sweats.
Only had s chance to use it once but found it very comfortable!
I am on the waiting list to have Cervical (Neck) 3/4 disc removed in a few weeks time. I have never had headaches - pretty much free all my life. The disc is putting pressure on my spinal cord. I am purchasing this cooling mat with the hope that I can stop using two cotton flannels on my pillow which gets very wet. I will return to give the result of my experiment- the reviews have made it sound like just what I need .Thank you very much.Alison
My husband suffers with Parkinson's, he suffers from a burning feeling mainly his head and has trouble sleeping bc of it, I'm hoping this will help, I JUST ordered it, but will follow up after he try's it.
Bought this for a friend as she was having hot flushes at night so was not getting any sleep glad to say it works she now gets a good night's sleep one very happy lady
I bought two of these, one each for my husband and me. He hasn't had a look in! I have had severe night sweats since the age of 35. I am now 62 and they show no sign of abating. Now I have these I can swap them over during the night to keep my horrendous temperature down. More comfortable than I have been in years! Wonderful.
I would never be with out my pillow.
I love mine, use it every night, pop it in the fridge every 3 nights or so & it's really cold. Highly recommend.
I have been using this for over a year now and cant sleep without it
