Anyone here use a silk pillowcase? Any recommendations? Do they really work for your face and hair? Must be machine washable (laundry bag okay) as I'm not about that hand wash life.

Yes my wife got us some at Nordstrom. I tried to tell her the best thing for face treatment for men was to sleep on a brick or smooth rock instead of a pillow. She got 2 silk pillowcases and now I am a big fan 😅 (the only disadvantage is I can’t strike a match on my chin any more, too soft)

Ps machine wash delicate and hang dry is fine

Ask your Black women friends where they got theirs. You can find them cheaper than Nordstrom’s for sure. There are a lot of black owned businesses on Etsy, IG, etc that sell them.

Also there’s satin vs silk, not all satin is made of silk, which is what will give you maximum softness and moisture retention. Satin is fine, but silk is best.

You might want to be careful if you have oily/acne prone skin, it could cause those oils to sit on your face more and cause breakouts. If you experience this purchase enough to swap them every couple nights or so.

Huh interesting. Never even heard of silk pillow cases till this post but I might have to snag one now

Lilysilk for the pillowcases - and highly recommend them. Huge improvement in my hair (no noticeable differences in my face).

BROOKLINEN makes 100% mulberry silk pillowcases. Decent price, but they have pretty great Black Friday sales if you can wait for that.

It has helped me, my hair is thin & straight and it doesn’t wake up all crazy. Coarser fibers frictions against your hair as you sleep/move around.

I used one for a while but didn’t notice a difference.

I love my silk pillowcases. Used to buy a few at a time from department stores in Asia - way cheaper & excellent quality. I also put mine in a laundry bag & then just hang dry

Costco online has them too

The Slip Silk pillowcase is fantastic, and also 25% off at Anthropologie right now.

Moms, what do you do with your children‘s creative output? I.e. pictures they have drawn, arts and crafts projects, etc.? I find it hard to throw things away and am keeping too many things. With 4 children, this is a problem (mess). What‘s your policy? E.g. do you keep things for a month and then decide what to keep and what to throw away? Do you discuss with them or just quietly let things disappear?
