Personally, I thought I was getting a different pillow that what arrived. I have a memory foam pillow with a gel layer on it that I bought at Costco for $35 (they sell the pink, green or purpler version here on Overstock for a lot more!). I like the pillow as it supports my head and aligns my spine so I wake up most mornings headache free. The gel layer keeps me cool too. However I worry that the gel cells could leak somehow. I'm not sure if they can, it's just something I've thought about. So when I found this pillow, with the gel infused with the foam, I thought it would be perfect. I was wrong! It was hard but did, to a point, shape to my head. Not what I expected and mainly felt very stiff. Also my pillow on the inside was white, rather than the blue marble so I'm not sold that I even had the right pillow. I had really high hopes for this pillow, but it fell flat all the way around. If you like firm pillows, and I mean firm, then you might light this pillow but order it knowing what you're getting. Maybe go to a department store or a mattress store and check one out in person before you order one online. Needless to say, I didn't even sleep one night on it. I tried it for about 30 minutes but it didn't get any better and I returned it the next day. It was in my home less than 24 hours. Perhaps if I'd given it a couple of night's I'd have a different review, but those 30 minutes I had were enough.
