Silk has been known to be one of the best materials to sleep on for many years. However, it hasn’t really taken center stage until recently. With the beauty and bedding industry reviving this amazing material in a fashionable way making silk accessories one of the hottest trends in beauty sleep.

Good Side Silk Pillowcase
First we have to talk about the colors these pillowcases come in! These stunning colors like terracotta, sage, blush, even the chartreuse are just so fun and incredibly on trend right now. The perfect way to make your bedroom really pop. This silk pillow case comes in a standard size and has a classic envelope style closure. This means you don’t have to worry about any bulky or scratchy zippers to make you uncomfortable. Instead these pillowcases are soft and smooth at any angle. The high quality silk is hypoallergenic which is great news for all out allergy sufferers out there.
We love how silk this silk is. It really does a great job at eliminating friction so you can move and snuggle up with your pillow without any concern or pillow wrinkles or messing up your blowout. From natural curls, to pin straight hair, the Good Side silk pillowcase does a great job at allowing your style to stay without causing crazy tangles or bedhead. A great option for anyone who takes their beauty sleep seriously.
Good Side Silk Sleep Mask
Good Side’s silk sleep mask has a simply and effective design. It is a great sleep mask, the silk is so soft on your skin. While silk is often talked about for the lack of friction that can cause wrinkles, there are some other great reasons why it is so ideal for sleep masks.
Silk is hypoallergenic, and breathable. Having a breathable material on your eyes is so important. If you have a cover on your eyes and face for hours on end, it could be terrible for the health of your eyes and skin. Thankfully the silk is nice and breathable which helps to avoid breakouts and allow your skin and eyes to breath.
The back of the mask is made with a stretchy thick band. This helps your mask to stay on comfortably without any scratchy velcro or thin band. The thickness of the band is great for added comfort as well.
The Good Side Scrunchies
We would like to argue that the scrunchies are the most fun silk product from Good Side! These scrunchies come in all the fun colors as the sleep masks and pillowcases, which makes them ideal for mixing and matching for yourself or for gift sets. They also come in three different size options for you to choose from.
The first is their Jumbo scrunchie. This is going to be your super trendy Heathers/80s style throwback scrunchie. It is super big and looks so fun whenever you wear it in your hair or on your wrist.
The next size down is their Classic Scrunchie. The name says it all, this is your classic scrunchie size that gives you that fluffy scrunchie look without being as dramatic as the Jumbo.
Finally, we come to their smallest size which is the Mini Scrunchie. This is perfect for anyone who prefers a hair tie over a scrunchie but really wants the added protection from breakage. What we love most of all is that the mini comes in a three pack!
Silk can be such an incredible material to use for your pillowcase, hair ties, and more. However, it can require a bit more care and attention than other materials like cotton, satin, or polyester. It isn’t anything overly fussy. However, if you are investing in a quality silk product it is important that you know how to take care of it properly in order to make sure it lasts.
You can machine wash your pillowcase if you use a cold gentle cycle. However, it is recommended that hand washing is best for all Good Side silk products for best results. Using cold water and a gentle PH neutral detergent is the ideal way to wash your silk.
To dry they recommend laying flat to air dry. Do not tumble dry as it can cause the silk to shrink. Avoiding direct sunlight will prevent the colors from fading. While using an iron or steamer on low heat can bring back luster and prevent wrinkles. This may seem like a lot to remember at first but it becomes very simple after you do it once.
There is no doubt that real silk is an investment. There are a lot of polyester based satin products out there that are cheap, but simply do not supply the same comfort and quality. When it comes to compared value of the price of the Good Side silk products compared to comparable items on the market, these prices are right on point.
Some of their smaller items like like their masks and scrunchies are even a bit cheaper than competitors. The great thing about Good Side is that they have awesome collections where you can save some cash when you buy multiple items. Orders over $100 ships for free and we think the quality of their products absolutely makes the price worth every penny.

The Good Side Silk Accessories – Our Experience:
I had the pleasure of getting to test out a Good Side Silk Pillowcase and Good Side Silk Sleep Mask. The first thing I noticed was how luxury the unboxing felt. It was truly like opening a present with a quality box and beautiful tissue paper. Making the Good Side sets ideal for gift giving.
Of course right after unboxing I was stunned by the incredible softness of the Good Side silk pillowcase and eye mask are made of. They are oh so silky smooth and soft to the touch. Good Side sent me a matching peach sleep mask and pillowcase set and it is absolutely stunning. The color looks just as vibrant and beautiful as the photos on the website.
Starting with the eye mask, it was so soft on the eyes, face, and hair. I personally have an average to small size head and the mask was slightly loose but stayed put throughout the night. This is great news for anyone with an average to larger head or a lot of hair. This will fit comfortably and without becoming too tight on the face. The elastic is nice and stretchy making it all the more comfortable.
The silk pillowcase however is the star of the show. This is a super soft pillowcase that was incredibly comfortable to sleep on. Waking up the next day, my hair looks great and not like bedhead at all. My style is held and no frizz to be found. I love the envelope closure for this pillow case as it does not have any bulky zippers that I have seen on other silk pillowcases. However, you may find your pillow tries to escape every once and a while.
The Good Side Collection – Final Thoughts:
Overall, I would highly recommend the entire line of Good Side Silk sleep and hair products to anyone. These are quality silk products that are silky smooth and high quality. I also really love that they have taken measure to make sure the customer knows about the ethical features of their brand. They use eco-friendly dyes, and have third party monitors that insure the factories are being ethically ran. Which allows you to rest easy knowing you are sleeping on a product that is made mindfully in order to not damage the planet or the people living on it. Good Side is absolutely a good buy.
