The ChillingQ Pillow from Zamat is a very cooling product that will stop you from struggling during hot nights – no more hot flushes with this pillow. But how cooling can a pillow actually be? Well, we put it to the test and tested it out to see if it is going to leave you feeling fresh night after night. Take a look at the rest of our ChillingQ Pillow review to find out what we thought about it.

This pillow has a unique design compared to most other pillows available on the market. From the shape to the filling, it is different to what you might expect. However, it may end up being the right pillow for you and can change your sleep experience.

Who is this product for?

The ChillingQ Pillow is for anyone and all sleepers, no matter your sleep position. There’s a removable insert that makes it more suitable for front and back sleepers, or you can keep it in if you sleep on your side. This pillow is especially designed for those who get hot during the night as it is instantly cooling and it will help you to stay cool.

In short, it’s suitable for:

What do we use this product for?

The main purpose of the ChillingQ Pillow is to keep hot sleepers cool and reduce the chance of sweating while you’re sleeping. In turn, it keeps you comfortable and gives you an undisturbed sleep. The structure of the pillow also helps with aligning your spine.

So, it can be used for:

Features you should know about the ChillingQ Pillow

There are a few features to this pillow that make it unique with its design and cooling properties. The features of this pillow are certainly worth mentioning as they are different to other products I have trialled and it's impressive with what they achieve with simple features.

Foam cooling pad

This is the gel inside the pillow that is used to keep you cool. The cooling pad is the most important feature of the pillow – it's what gives it its name. The purpose of the foam pad is to stop you from having hot flushes and keep you cooler through the night. It gives an instant cooling sensation so you can almost immediately cool down.


While this may seem like a random button on the pillow with no real purpose (as I did to begin with). It then became clear that it is used to keep the pillowcase in place. Not only that, it's in that place to allow your head to be cradled by the pillow and supported from all angles. It means you can sink deeper into the pillow and feel as much of the coolness as possible.

Removable foam

It allows you to change the height of the pillow for a higher or lower loft depending on how you sleep. I found that there was a noticeable difference between keeping the foam insert and removing it. If you want a softer feel pillow then you can take it out, but those wanting something a bit firmer can put the foam back.

After trying it out, I would recommend taking out the memory foam piece for front and back sleepers to make it a lower loft. Those who are side sleepers are more likely to want to keep it in. To be honest, the design can be a little confusing when you first use it but there is a manual included which will definitely help.

Review of the ChillingQ Pillow


The ChillingQ Pillow has a very clever design in many ways. Firstly, the adjustable inserts are really useful to suit everyone's sleep position (as mentioned above). Secondly, the curved edges of the pillow create the perfect space for your shoulder to rest – particularly for those who sleep on their side. The ergonomic design is then continued into the centre of the pillow where you'll find a groove. This is the ideal shape for you to place your head and feel it cocoon for a cosy feel. No matter your sleep position, you'll experience the same feeling.

Now, on to the smaller details. I liked the button fastening in the centre of the ChillingQ Pillow because it's great for keeping the cover in place. At first, I was a little confused by it but then its purpose became clearer. Using the blue button is their way of reinforcing the design that allows your head to sink down and feel cocooned from every angle. It's a good detail to ensure you feel all the benefits of the cooling pad too.

Lastly, we loved the packaging of the pillow. The pillow comes vacuum-packed into a small box. It's also wrapped in the user manual so you can clearly see how to get started with the product and immediately become aware of how it works. The manual includes specifications, design features, instructions, warranty, care instructions, what's included and contact information. Everything you could possibly need is very obviously given to you. You'll be left with no confusion afterwards.

What we like about the ChillingQ Pillow

There's a lot to like about this pillow but it might not be to everyone's taste. However, we have picked out the things that we liked the most to give you a better idea of the product and our experience with it.

What we didn’t like about the ChillingQ Pillow


A lot of the dislikes of this pillow come down to personal preferences. All-in-all it's a great product with many great features, but it can't be suitable for everyone. Here are a few things we found that could be deal-breakers:

  • First up is the zipper. The pillow comes with a zipper on the front which is quite unusual. Not only that, it also makes it difficult to remove when needed. The zip placement isn't the only issue for removing the cover. It is also made difficult as it is very tight fitting to the actual pillow. I found that it is doable but will take a bit of a squeeze to do it.
  • Personally, as someone who gets cold most of the time, a pillow that is instantly cooling is a bit much for me. However, I can imagine it is amazing for those who sleep hot. This pillow isn't temperature regulating so it isn't working with your body temperature throughout the night.

Zamat's customer service and company information

Delivery – There's free shipping on this pillow so you won't need to worry about any surprising extra costs. You can expect your pillow to arrive within 6-10 days in the UK – no waiting around for weeks for it to come.

Payment – The usual payments are available on Zamat, as well as the option to pay with PayPal, Blik or split payments with a Klarna account. Using Klarna will reduce the initial payment and split it into four smaller payments.

Online customer service – Online there is a help centre full of FAQs and useful information. You can browse their articles on the products or policies to find what you're looking for. If not, there's a Contact Us form you can fill out with your question. Zamat's team are fairly quick to get back to you so you will have your answer in no time!

Check the alternatives to the ChillingQ Pillow

If the idea of the ChillingQ Pillow isn't quite what you're looking for, we have picked another option that may be better suited to you. Someone who isn't a hot sleeper probably won't enjoy this one as much as those who are. So, if that's you, then take a look at our alternative cooling pillow.

Emma Premium Pillow

We have picked out the Emma Premium Pillow as our alternative to the ChillingQ. It's another cooling pillow, thanks to its cooling layer inside. The difference is, this foam layer is temperature-regulating so it will work with your body heat to keep you comfortable.

A similarity between the two is it's adjustable. There are a few layers inside that can be removed or left in to change the loft of the pillow and suit your sleeping position. Both of them use memory foam as the filling and both have a removable cover that can be machine washed.

Is the ChillingQ Pillow eco-friendly or sustainable?

While it isn't the most eco-friendly pillow or uses completely sustainable materials, it is still better than some of the other options on the market.

This pillow uses bio-based memory foam which is a lot better for the environment and ticks the sustainability box. It also has a pillowcase made partly from bamboo fibre. So, it's a good effort from them and could be worse, but improvements could be made.

How did we test the product? 

Now we'd like to discuss exactly how we test our products. After all, how can you trust our opinion on quality pillows if you don't know how we got there? On a basic level, all the products we review go through these three tests:

  • Visual inspection
  • Hands-on inspection
  • Measured tests

And when it comes to the ChillingQ Pillow, in particular, these are the exact tests conducted to gauge its quality:

  • Looked for any visual details e.g. the packaging
  • Trialled different sleep positions
  • Spent time lying on the pillow to see how it adjusted, retained shape and tested the success of the key features
  • Directly compared to other pillows

Overall impressions of the product after the testing


While testing the pillow, I found that there was slight off-gassing when I initially opened the product but this is definitely very minimal in comparison to other memory foam products. I have tried out other memory foam pillows which give off a stronger smell that takes longer to air out.

Off-gassing aside, this is THE most cooling pillow I have ever tested. Many other alternatives tend to stay cool for a short period and then wear off. However, this one had a lasting coolness to it. The only downside to this is that it isn't temperature regulating. Where most pillows cool you down when needed and then remain neutral, this one just stays cool for a long time. It's a great pillow for the Summer when every night is a lot warmer or for those who are hot sleepers and consistently hot throughout the night. We wouldn't recommend it for those who sleep cold night after night.

FAQs about your ChillingQ Pillow

In case we missed out on any important questions or you couldn't find what you're looking for, we have put together a few of the questions and answers you should know before buying. If there's anything else we have forgotten to mention then leave us a comment below and we'll get back to you.

Can I use other pillowcases instead of ZAMAT pillowcases?

Yes, you can. However, we wouldn't recommend it to get the full benefits of the pillow. One unique thing about this pillow is the groove in the centre for your head. This won't work as well with your own pillowcase because it won't fit snugly.

How cool is the ChillingQ Pillow?

Zamat says “This innovative pillow is designed to be cooler by 50 degrees Fahrenheit compared to a regular pillow.”

What is the purpose of the blue dot?

It is used to create a concave that provides support for your neck and encourages spinal alignment. It also increases the breathability of the pillow.
