Best pillow ever!
I love my SmartSilk pillow. I finally had a good night's sleep. So comfortable. Best purchase I ever made.
Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Fire retardents found
Got a pair of these as gifts. Seemed really nice to the touch. After using them for a week, I couldn't breathe. I was all stuffed up in the morning. Since I'm in the chemical industry and since this is the only thing that changed to cause my problems, I took them to my work and had them checked out by ripping one apart. In the middle of this pillow is foam which is covered in PBDE's (polybrominated diphenyl ethers) which are highly toxic chemicals that disrupt your hormones in your body, cause lung conditions such as COPD and can make you infertile. As such, PBDE's are banned in Europe from all manufactured products.
I strongly advise against using these products as they cause a serious health risk, especially developing children.

This claim is unsubstantiated. These pillows are made in Canada and contain Polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDE's) which are banned in Canada. Why are they adding a fire retardant to the core of a pillow?

I haven't bought one and don't plan on buying one. Just stop and think about it, if you haven't slept through the night, how will a pillow change the quality of your sleep? They are scammers, taking your money. You can but a better quality pillow for $25.00.

1 month & no order!
Placed an expensive order of over $700 of products through getsmartsilk.com on 3/26, and as of 4/21 still have not received my order. Their website says 48-hour shipping. They emailed me a generic receipt with nothing other than the items I ordered and an order no., no company address or logo or customer service number to call, strange.
After searching out a phone number on their website, I came across an online order update page, I input my order number which then told me it was non-existent, so I called them and they couldn't find my order at first, but after some time on hold they found it. They said, “Oh, no one reached out to you? There is a delay, we'll send it out shortly.” Strange, I did not receive any email or phone call from them regarding this so I kind of felt like they were making that up. Well that was 4/8/16, 2 weeks ago.
I called again a week later on 4/15/16 and again was told that my order will ship shortly. Again, a week later on 4/21/16, and still no Smartsilk. This is crazy. I'd leave a product review if I could get my products so I am leaving an order experience review which I give ZERO stars. I will call my credit card company if this ends up being a scam.
