Sweaty sleeper? These top-rated cooling memory foam pillows are down to $18 a pop

What is it?

If you tend to run hot when you sleep, we think we've found your new best friends: Pharmedoc Cooling Memory Foam Pillows. These breathable head cushions are filled with holes to improve airflow, so they won't trap your body heat and cause those pores to start pouring sweat. Here's to minimizing your slumber-time schvitzing! Oh, and heads up: Amazon is running a sale on this popular set — just $36 for two cushy pillows ($18 each).

C'mon — it has 'cooling' right in its name and a bunch of holes in it. Can't you just feel the ventilation?

Why is it a good deal?

Getting a good night's sleep is priceless, but a quality pillow can cost a pretty penny. That said, this two-piece set is on sale for less than we've seen many single pillows going for. The pair is often sold for around $40, but its current price of $36 is the lowest we've ever seen it drop. (It wasn't even this low during Prime Day!) Sweet dreams, indeed!

Why do I need this?

The Pharmedoc pillow set is packed with elements to help keep you cool and comfortable while you snooze. For starters, each pillow is crafted from memory foam that helps provide impressive support that cradles your head and neck in bed. Plus, there are ventilation holes to allow air to pass through, cooling off your pillow, and your noggin, in the process. Also, each one is even infused with a special cooling gel to help keep it — and you — from overheating during the night.

Because it's created from a block of memory foam, the Pharmedoc cooling pillow won't easily lose its shape like other pillows do. Another nice perk: It has a removable and machine-washable cover.

What reviewers say

More than 3,200 Amazon shoppers have given this pillow set a perfect review. One five-star shopper called it the "best pillow." They added, "I have had a terrible time finding the right pillow. They are either too hard or they squish down by morning, and either way I wake up with neck, back and jaw pain. This pillow is great. I love it!"

A fellow happy slumberer raved about its cooling capabilities. "I love that the pillow is keeping my head/neck cool," they wrote. "With regular pillows, my head/neck area would be hot throughout the evening."

"Makes me excited to go to bed again," wrote a final fan. "It's truly amazing how much difference a good pillow makes. This pillow won't become flat over time, it's supportive, yet soft as well. The only issue I had with the pillow is the initial smell, but that's to be expected with memory foam. I took off the cover it came in and let it air out for about 48 hours, and it was good to go after that." (If you'd rather not deal with that initial memory foam smell, here's another highly rated pair on sale!)

Snag your own cooling memory foam pillows for a steal while you still can!

The Pharmedoc pillow is specially designed to help keep the spine in alignment for side and back sleepers.
