As part of the superb silent night wellbeing collection, the Copper Infused pillow is one of the best pillows for under £20 that we've found. Not only is it fairly cost effective, but it also  promotes a tranquil and restorative night's sleep.

The premium cover is infused with copper, providing beauty benefits with a higher copper content than other pillows on the market.

The copper has natural antibacterial properties which can reduce skin irritations from allergens, warns off dust mites, and bacteria. A cleaner pillow can prevent and repair breakouts and the copper helps keep your skin healthier too. Notably, using a copper pillow has been demonstrated to decrease wrinkles and boost collagen production, contributing to anti-aging effects which is a fantastic development.
