If you’re looking for the Fountain of Youth, it is between the sheets.
You probably already know this — but your body repairs itself and recovers while you sleep. And all of that recovery and repair can impact how you look. Hence, the phrase “beauty sleep”.
But it’s not just sleep alone — it’s restful sleep that can make your complexion bright, your wrinkles fade, and your eyes perkier. However, the foundation of beauty sleep — your mattress — tends to get ignored.
The last time I bought a mattress was almost 10 years ago, so I was well overdue for a replacement. Things have changed dramatically in the last decade when it comes to mattresses. My previous mattress was huge, heavy, and extremely awkward. The process was long and arduous. I spent an entire weekend lying on mattresses in showrooms throughout Central Ohio. Then I ordered my mattress and painstakingly waited two weeks for it to arrive during a 5-hour window. It was insane to lug it up the steps and the whole process is probably why I waited another decade to get something new.
I have always taken for granted that mattresses and mattress-buying experiences would always be the same, but the Layla mattress is here to prove me wrong.
First of all, I spent about 10 minutes choosing my king-sized Layla mattress. It arrived at my door within a few days, and it was literally AT MY DOOR. The box was about chest height and weighed a little less than 100 lbs. I easily pushed it through the front door and up the stairs to my bedroom. From the moment I opened the box, my mattress magically unfolded like Aladdin’s carpet and expanded before my eyes. And it was soft. Like a dreamy-little-cloud-of-happiness soft.
Secondly, the mattress itself is not your grandma’s mattress. They’ve infused technology and design to make the mattress the ultimate vessel for a good night’s sleep. Here are a few things that make them different:
- Two firmness levels: One side is softer, the other side is firmer. Just remove the cover, flip it over, and voila! You’ve got a whole new mattress density.
- Copper: I had to read that twice too, but yes — copper. The top layer of memory foam on this mattress is infused with copper. Copper helps you experience a cooler, more productive sleep.
- ThermoGEL: Layla uses food-based ThermoGEL technology to keep your body cool while you sleep.
I spent a few nights on each side of the mattress and ultimately chose the soft side. I’ve noticed a lot less tossing-and-turning than I have experienced in the past. And my kids absolutely love snuggling in bed with us at night, my two-year old daughter even commented that she noticed a difference in comfort!
Someone is REALLY enjoying Mom’s new Layla!
The other amazing benefit is one that you will feel in your heart. Besides giving you a good night’s sleep, Layla has a social mission to help others less fortunate to get a good night’s sleep, too. They’ve partnered with a homeless shelter, so that when you purchase a Layla mattress, they give the opportunity for someone in need to sleep on a bed that night.
A comfortable mattress with a social mission qualifies as a win-win in my book!
