These airy pillows are infused with cooling gel, and they're down to $21 each

If you're a hot sleeper, this ventilated, supportive two-pack may be just what you need to stop the sweat, fans say.

When you finally get to put your head on your pillow at night, you want to feel comfortable, supported and cool — especially in the sweltering summer months. If you run hot when you sleep, you already know that cooling bedding can make a world of a difference, and these Pharmedoc Cooling Memory Foam Pillows are a shopper favorite that's marked down during Amazon's 4th of July sale.

C'mon — it has "cooling" right in the name, and look at all that ventilation. Can't you just feel the breeze?

Why is this a good deal? 💰

Getting a good night's sleep is priceless, but quality pillows can cost a pretty penny. That said, this two-piece set is on sale for less than we've seen many single pillows going for. The pair is at its lowest price since early May, just in time for July's sticky evenings.

Why do I need this? 🤔

Pharmedoc's pillow set is designed to keep you cool and comfortable while you snooze. For starters, each cushion is made from memory foam that cradles your head and neck without losing its shape. Holes allow air to pass through, cooling off your pillow — and your noggin — in the process. They're even infused with a special cooling gel to help keep you from overheating during the night. Another nice perk: removable, machine-washable covers.

What reviewers say 💬

More than 4,300 Amazon shoppers have given this cooling pillow set a five-star review — here's to minimizing your slumber-time schvitzing!

Pros 👍

"I've probably purchased 50-plus different pillows, looking for one that was just right, and this one checked off all the correct boxes for me!" said this fan. "Unlike a 'regular' pillow, when your head sinks into it, it rebounds back to its original shape without having to shake and pound it back to a shape that is somewhat comfortable for you. ... I've only had this pillow for a few days now but it really does keep my noggin cool! My head would usually sweat most nights with regular pillows, winter or summer, it didn't matter ... not a single bead of sweat so far."

One five-star shopper called this the "best pillow." They added, "I have had a terrible time finding the right pillow. They are either too hard or they squish down by morning, and either way, I wake up with neck, back and jaw pain. This pillow is great. I love it!"

Another happy slumberer raved about its cooling capabilities. "I love that the pillow is keeping my head/neck cool," they wrote. "With regular pillows, my head/neck area would be hot throughout the evening."

"I decided to purchase this foam pillow before Christmas and have had absolutely wonderful sleeping experiences for the past six months," one more satisfied shopper explained. "It's hard enough to provide sufficient neck support and comfort in general, plus [it] hasn't lost its shape."

Cons 👎

A few shoppers also mentioned that these aren't as soft as they had hoped. "I wish this pillow was just a tad less firm," a reviewer admitted. "It still supports my head and neck better than other pillows I've used, including other memory foam pillows." (Keep scrolling for another option if you're into a more traditional feel.)

One shopper said wished she could super-size these pillows. "I only wish these pillows were available in king size," they wrote.

These pillows are specially designed to help keep the spine in alignment for side and back sleepers.

Memory foam isn't for everyone, but that doesn't mean you have to sweat it out at night. Amazon shoppers adore this two-pack of down alternative moisture-wicking pillows, and just check out that discount:

"These pillows are great for proper head and neck alignment and plump up beautifully after opening from being vacuum sealed," raved one satisfied sleeper. "Soft, but not too soft, and breathable."
