Is there a better feeling than slipping into fresh bedding, completely blissful right? But after doing some research, I discovered that while 73% of us change our bedding weekly, our pillowcases can have up to 17,000 times more bacteria than the average toilet seats. As well as sounding nasty, it can also wreak havoc on our skin and irritate any allergies we may have. Near fear, let me introduce you to KOVRD.
KOVRD pillowslips are the luxurious alternative to constant bedding washing, by developing super soft disposable pillow slips that go on top of your regular pillow case to used for up to 4 nights, with the option of adding yummy essential oils to the slip for a dreamy nights sleep if desired. Oils include delicious eucalyptus and tea tree to target skin concerns like acne and blemishes, chamomile and ylang ylang to soothe plus lemon and peppermint to clarify. By using motion-release technology, the natural essential oils slowly releases on your pillow slip through the night as you move, easing you into a restful sleep and helping to enhance your skin’s condition. Um, added bonus – it smells amazing!
KOVRD came to be as one of the co-founder Greer was having skin problems (think redness, blemishes etc), and her dermatologist recommended that she change her pillow slip every day to help reduce the amount of bacteria that her face was being exposed to – voila KOVRD was born! As we are in the midst of summer, it has been very refreshing to swap pillowcases every few nights, which I’m positive has assisted with reducing blemishes and breakouts, and also feels nicer on the skin. I found that my skin didn’t ‘stick’ to my pillowcase as it often can with some pillowcases, as these one felt like my skin was able to breathe properly due to fabric – if that makes sense? I also enjoyed the scent of the pillowslips as I was drifting off to sleep and waking up nice and fresh.
As KOVRD are redefining beauty sleep, I can completely vouch how practical these slips are, even my husband commented that he ‘quite likes the scented pillowslips!’ – bonus!
