I know that I’ve mentioned it a number of times over the last few years – but I have been buying (and LOVING) the satin pillow slips from Dear Deer for quite some time now. Since before Hubby ever even came on the scene! Now, you will NEVER see our bed made without each of us having one of our pillows covered in smooth satin.
I owned 3 sets of these gorgeous pillow slips – my very first was a pink shade (I don’t think it was the Blush, as it was more of a soft, cotton candy in my opinion, and I know that Dear Deer did offer different shades of pink at some point) which I sadly had to let go over the holidays. We did a big clean out and I was really trying to be ruthless. Sadly the edges had become very frayed, but I’ve owned them for many MANY years and have used them to death. Other than my beautiful pink set, I own the charcoal and the fawn, both beautiful colours.
Then, at the end of last year I had a surprise arrive on my desk from Dear Deer! A beautifully curated, superbly thought out press drop that included a number of goodies. This beautiful drop announced that the brand has become PETA approved as well as being proudly vegan! Included in this beautiful box of wonder were 2 brand new pillow slips in the shade cream, a beautiful pearly off-white that has me yearning to rest my head and snooze whenever I see them on my bed.
I was lucky enough that my darling Luna – my fur child, the apple of my eye and princess of our house – was actually featured on the Dear Deer newsletter announcing their PETA approval. With good reason, as this pooch is quite taken by these pillow slips. She sleeps on our bed still (we have a king-size, extra length bed, and somehow this greyhound takes over more than half the bed, while Nick and I are left with the rest to share), and when she sees the chance, she’ll sidle up to one side and snuggle on our pillows. But always the satin-covered ones!
So – why satin you may ask?
There are a long string of benefits to sleeping on satin. So many, in fact, that you’ll be wondering why you’ve been sleeping on anything else!
♥ It maintains the moisture balance in your skin
♥ It helps minimise facial wrinkles and puffiness (be gone, dreaded sleep lines!)
♥ It doesn’t absorb your fancy face lotions and potions (we work hard for these, so yay!)
♥ It’s anti-ageing
♥ It’s soothing on skin post treatments or procedures
♥ It’s much gentler on lashes and lash extensions (even my lovely lash tech told me this)
♥ It helps prevent hair loss, damage or split ends
♥ It prevents frizzy or dry hair (I especially notice this when I’m away and sleep on regular pillow slips – my hair feels frizzier and more fragile)
♥ If you go for blowouts at the hair salon often, it’ll keep them looking and feeling fresh for longer
♥ It’s much gentler on hair extensions and braids
♥ Doctors suggest satin for patients undergoing chemo or radiotherapy as their skin becomes much more sensitive
♥ It’s hypoallergenic
♥ You feel so fancy and extra, you imagine waking up as a Hollywood starlet!
