I have to admit, I like traveling but I hate flying, especially those long flights. I don’t have the luxury to fly first class or even business class. Being cooped up for hours in a small seat that barely reclines is pretty tough on your body. I have a hard time sleeping on a bed, let alone on an airplane’s tiny seat. If I was lucky to be traveling with my husband, I might be able to use his shoulder for a little support. But even then, I often have to wake up and move around due to sore neck.
I’ve bought several travel pillows but none of them was really all that comfortable. When my last one broke, I’ve been on the look out for something different. I was ecstatic when I received an email from Cabeau that offered me samples to try out.
Cabeau was founded in 2009 by David and Kyna Sternlight and named after their son. The company makes creative and innovative travel accessories and has won numerous awards, including TGA “Buzz Award”, Dr. Toy’s “Best Vacation Product” and “Best Pick” awards. Its goal is to transform coach travel into first class comfort.

The Memory Foam Evolution Pillow is by far the most comfortable travel pillow I have ever used. Unlike most travel pillows which are leveled and sit on your neck with little support, the raised middle design cradles your jaw. The memory is soft and responsive and provides great support without make your neck stiff. On my red-eye flight, I was able to actually fall asleep and wake up without a sore neck! It also comes with a pair of earplugs which really help block the cabinet noise. It has a media pouch for your cell phone, adjustable sliding toggles to keep it in place and washable velour cover. The compact travel bag make is easily to carry.
The Midnight Magic Sleep Mask is also great. I am the type that needs the space to be pretty dark in order to sleep. I rarely take naps during the day for that reason. Most masks often leave marks on the face or the gap between nose and eyes allows the light to peek through. The Midnight Magic Sleep Mask is soft with an adjustable nose bridge so it’s completely dark. The inner rounded eye liners provide spaces between the mask and your eyes so you don’t have to worry about getting raccoon eyes when you remove it after your nap. This is huge for us ladies as we often have eye makeup on. This also comes with a pair of earplugs. The elastic free straps make it comfortable to wear and stay in place.
