Get a Better Nights Sleep with the N:Rem Sleep System

First off let me apologise for the lack of images, my new camera arrived a day after the N:Rem mattress was picked up.

I love my bed, I spend a lot of time in it, it's usually my happy place. As a Spoonie, I'm in my bedroom more often than anywhere else in the house. So, when the fabulous Elise from N:Rem Sleep System messaged me and asked if I would like to trial the comfort tablets, I was more than willing.* Who doesn't want a better nights sleep? My sleep pattern is up the wall, I suffer from insomnia on top of the pain of my chronic illnesses. We have a bed that is less than a year old with a memory foam mattress that I am really happy with but I still decided to give the comfort tablets a shot. 

I was sent two boxes, (as my boyfriend suffers with back pain) each containing five foam, interchangeable tablets. Each tablet is 12 cm thick and comes in a variety of sizes, from single to super-kingsize. The tablets are all different colours and densities which are used to add comfort to your sleep. There are two Super Soft tablets, a Soft, Medium and Firm, which can be arranged in any order for personal preference. As I suffer with Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome and Fibromyalgia, the location of my pain changes all the time. However, I set my foam tablets up to help with lower back pain; there is a leaflet with the trial to help setting up the tablets, as well as information online and over the phone advice. 
It is suggested that the Super Soft tablet is placed under the particularly painful area. I chose Super Soft > Firm > Super Soft > Soft > Medium during my trial and didn't change the order, although could have with ease. 

Our current mattress was bought to benefit me so I was especially pleased that the Comfort Changing Topper could be altered on either side and my boyfriend didn't have to sleep on a mattress that was only good for my achy body and not his. Unfortunately, due to our current living arrangements, our bedroom is pretty small and up against a wall so the both toppers would not fit on our double bed without hanging over. I ended up using the trial and my boyfriend's tablets stayed in the box (I did offer to swap but he wanted me to try it because he's a star).
As soon as the foam tablets were placed on top of my bed, I lay down, sighed and instantly fell in love. The comfort was incredible and the different densities were not noticeable at all, it was just sheer luxury.
I can't regulate my body temperature correctly so found the foam tablets very hot, I ended up sleeping badly with no duvet and getting cold in my joints, albeit on a cloud. When the mattress topper is purchased it comes with a coolmax cover which would have aided in a better nights sleep for me. My memory foam mattress has a coolmax cover so I'm aware of how great they are. 
After a few nights of 'breaking in' the Sleep System, I really liked it. I can't unequivocally say that I slept better but I woke up less stiff in my back and neck. I think if my bed was older and causing me problems I'd buy the N:Rem Comfort Changing Topper without blinking.
The Comfort Changing Topper costs £199 - Single, £299 - Double, £299 - King, £399 - Super-King. N:Rem also have finance options available from £1 per night.
You can trial the Comfort Topper for ten nights at £10. If you're not satisfied, N:Rem will refund you. If you're interested in a new mattress, I highly recommend the trial. Find out more here.
* Disclaimer: I was sent the N:Rem trial to test for two weeks, free of charge in exchange for an honest review. I received no payment for this post and all opinions are 100% my own.


  1. The n:rem comfort topper is brilliant. I found the same as you during the trial-- the foam tablets were really warm (I struggle with regulating my temp too)-- but like you say it's not an issue with the actual topper. The coolmax cover is fab :) My mattress is much older and had crap support so I purchased the topper. It's made such a difference. I no longer wake up so stiff and sore and it makes my bed so comfy.


    1. That's fab. If I needed a new mattress, I'd definitely get one x

  2. How have I never heard of this? My back every now and then plays up and it feels like the only thing that helps is a hot water bottle! This sounds so good, I definitely need to try it!

    1. It's really good, I recommend you have a go of the trial, for sure x

  3. This sounds a pretty good idea for testing Sarah. People don't realise how hard it is to sleep with pain and insomnia, a huuuuge vicious circle, even though I have a fab memory foam mattress. Not heard of these so great post

    1. I'd never heard of them either, they're so comfortable. Highly recommend the trial x
