The Smushion Cushion Review & Giveaway!

I suffer from chronic pain in more than one spot, like many people do. Anything that helps me feel more comfortable, I'm all over. The Smushion Cushion is one of those things. I had to have it for review. I saw lots of lovely things on Plow & Hearth,  but I was set on this beautiful product. So simple of an idea, yet so amazing in execution.

I have an iron and granite coffee table. I didn't pick it out, it was handed down to me. I would have never picked it out, because it is the most painful thing to rest your legs on. I hate the design and really need to have it replaced eventually. For now, the Smushion Cushion has made it comfortable to put my feet up again. It keeps my forelegs and ankles from being dug into by the pointy marble and metal top and edge. My feet and legs sink into it like a dream. The stock pic is a bit deceiving, as you do sink in a lot more than the pic conveys. Below is a more accurate display.

The Smushion Cushion is unique in that it's no ordinary pillow. This pillow slash portable ottoman is made of memory foam and very thick. You feel nothing between you and this when you are using it. What's also unique is that it has a remote control holder as you can see in the pic.Do you see that uncomfortable metal edge I was talking about?

The Smushion Cushion has many uses. 
  • To give your lumbar spine a break, to give you an ergonomic position when sitting
  • Foot rest
  • arm rest 
  • head rest
  • upper back rest
  • laptop or book rest
  • plate of food rest 
  • It's small enough you can carry it with you anywhere, such as on an airplane
It gets better though. How?  It's machine washable! Just unzip the pillow from it's case. There are few things better than an easily cleaned product that you use a lot and thus get dirty a lot. I am in love with this product in every way and highly recommend you get one for yourself ! It's well worth it's $29.95 price tag.

I'm excited to say that I get to give you a chance to win one of your own right now as part of my Valentines Day "I love me" pampering event! 
Good luck!

I was provided with this product for the purpose of review and was not compensated for my contribution. My opinion may differ from yours.

  3. I like the idea of using it for a book prop!

  5. Very comfortable looking!

  6. Never heard of these company, Love the review xo

  7. I Love this....my husband is a chronic pain patient due mostly to a failed back surgery. As a result, he cant sit or sleep with his legs flat and has to have something stuffed under them to prop his knees up which right now means a pillow or two under his knees. In addition to using this for a foot rest on our coffee table like you are, he would also use it to put under his knees to keep them propped up. I think this would really be a great product for my husband and think he would really like it. I'd use it as a head rest too....thank you for the great review! Dh_jax@yahoo.com
