Like most people, I stocked my first apartment post-college with affordable items: Amazon Basics kitchen pans, a funhouse mirror from the 99 cent store (IYKYK) and a sheet set that cost about as much as a large oat milk latte.
So, when I signed a lease with my boyfriend for our very first apartment a few years later, I knew I wanted to elevate our home goods game. The first thing to go? Those cheap pillowcases caked in years of sweat and product buildup that no power wash could fix. This is where the slip Pure Silk pillowcase comes in.
I had obviously heard that sleeping with a silk pillowcase has anti-aging benefits (more on that down below), but I wasn't prepared for how much joy this specific little piece of pure silk would bring me.

So, why am I pushing a silk pillowcase that's nearly $100 for a single one when it's not on sale? Well, the silk fibers of the pillowcase are significantly less absorbent and cause less friction than standard cotton pillowcases. The silk fibers help to keep your skin's moisture balance in check and your delicate hair detangled. Think about it: We (allegedly) spend eight hours on our pillowcases every night. Shouldn't they at least be doing something for us?
Even if the above beauty benefits didn't exist, I would still be a silk pillowcase evangelist — thanks to the instant shot of serotonin I get every time I rest my head to sleep. Not only does it look super fancy, but it also looks like I actually have my life together. Every morning when my alarm goes off, I swear the slip silk pillowcases whisper in my ear, "You got this, Sarah. Go get 'em." "Thank you, and I love you," I whisper back.
If you want a little more luxe in your life — or need to replace the pillowcase from when you were young, dumb and broke — I really cannot recommend this pillowcase enough.
