This cooling mattress pad is worth every cent! I've been stuck with a memory foam mattress for years. I hated it because it retained and reflected so much heat that it was like an oven. This has been a lifesaver. I'm sleeping so much better and not waking up as much because I'm not boiling hot! You know how nice it is when you crawl in to clean, fresh sheets in the summer and they're nice and cool? That's what this mattress pad is like, only it stays that way! It does get a little warmer after several hours, but it doesn't retain and reflect the heat. And all you have to do is shift a little bit and voila! You have a new cool spot. Probably the best thing about this is that my husband likes it, too. He's usually freezing in bed and I'm usually baking. This pad actually works for both of us. I have tried products in the past that were too cold at first- hubby couldn't tolerate them. Worse, they would get really hot later on and then I wasn't happy. The Comfort Memories Blue Bubble Gel Mattress pad solved all of those issues. Thanks to it, I sleep almost the whole night through! I love it, love it, love it!
I usually do not complain even if my order is unfortunate. However, this product is expensive and It just not working. I have been sleeping on the pad for three days and I wake up a few times during the night because it is hot as hell. The pad cumulates the hit from my body and I feel like I am sleeping on a hot surface. Some buyers mention that you can move when It get too warm but I have no place to move to. In fact, some people do not move when they sleep. If you move it means you do not sleep. Because of this think twice before you buy it.

I purchased this gel mattress pad to offset the heat of my memory foam mattress. Although it's very cool when I first get into bed, I still wake up with horrible night sweats and have a terrible nights sleep. I did see that others had the same problem, even after purchasing this but I was desperate for a good nights sleep so I purchased it hoping that it would work. If you are looking into purchasing this product to control the heat of your memory foam mattress, I would not recommend it. I've been researching other solutions and I'm going to try purchasing a cotton quilt to put under my fitted sheet, I've read that it can contain moisture and heat. The top solution I've seen is a wool mattress topper, but that's very expensive and after purchasing this gel, I don't have the money for another expensive solution that "may" work. Maybe if I put this gel topper over the cotton quilt I will have better results but this gel topper alone was unfortunately not enough to get the job done. I thought that for the price I was paying, I would get better results but was sadly mistaken.
The mattress pad has helped me be able to sleep at night. It has cooled my memory foam down.I am not using AC yet and I hope when I do it will cool the pad more.I am just a hot tamale! I do like the way it is made with a cover you can unzip to launder.I would just suggest that the company make it out of 100% cotton instead of poly.
I gave this as a gift to my brother and his wife because their memory foam mattress was so hot in the summer that they were having to sleep on an air mattress in the living room. I have not slept on this product myself, but I can report that, after 4 weeks, the air mattress is deflated and back in the closet. They are quite satisfied.
I LOVE my new gel mattress pad!! When I bought my memory foam mattress I was unaware that it would be so warm during the summer. Since I'm now living in Texas it was even warmer. Being a woman who is in menopause I'm so glad to find that there are gel mattress pads. It makes a BIG difference! I'm quite pleased & sleeping well . . . & cooler! Thanx!!!
