Branche Pillow Slips

Sleeping Beauty

Branché silk charmeuse pillow case in gold

We all know how important it is to get enough beauty sleep (no amount of eye cream can cover up all those late nights), but waking up with a sheet-creased face and rumpled, knotted hair is not our idea of a good morning. Branché pillow cases banish these bedtime conundrums and look good doing it. Made entirely of silk, these dreamy pillow cases come in colors like silver, blush and gold. Branché recently upped the softness factor with the use of a new premium silk, and we found the texture to be more irresistible than ever.

Not only do these slick cases feel fabulous, they go to work while you're sleeping to provide beauty benefits. The ultra-smooth silk charmeuse surface helps prevent wrinkles by minimizing the pulling of skin (goodbye, creases). And because hair glides easily over the pillow case, pesky tangles are kept away and your hairstyle remains intact, reducing the need for oh-so tedious styling. In addition to preventing knots, Branché claims that hair also benefits from silk amino acids that restore elasticity and shine.

Let's see here…crease-free skin; smooth shiny hair; and a scrumptiously soft feeling against your face. Is it time for bed yet?

Price: ranges from $55-$104, depending on the size of your case.
