Allswell Cool Touch Mattress Topper review
A cheap solution to top off your mattress and sleep.
I’ve been interested in buying a new mattress for some time now, but the financial commitment and possibility of making the wrong choice stopped me. So I welcomed the opportunity to test the CoolTouch Memory Foam Mattress Topper.
It seemed like it could be an economical way to enhance my mattress without having to buy a new one. Did it do the trick? Read on and see.
Allswell sent me a free mattress topper so I could try it out. I slept on it before giving this review, and you can rest assured you’re getting my honest, unbiased opinion.

Unpacking the topper
The topper comes folded inside of a medium-size box. Fortunately, unpacking is very straightforward: Take it out of the box, unfold and place it on top of your mattress. Easy!
It doesn’t look very pretty or comfortable. Actually, it looks like thick, bendable styrofoam. I wasn’t sure if it’d be an upgrade to our standard mattress, but the key to this product is in the feel — which is awesome. Although it doesn’t look like a standard mattress topper, it’s oh so comfy, and that’s what matters.
One month in
In terms of comfort, I noticed a huge difference with the topper on my old mattress. I also noticed how cool I stayed throughout the night. The topper has a “cooling graphite” feature that claims to transfer excess heat from the body, and it definitely seems to work!
On the downside, I had to buy king-size sheets to cover the topper and my mattress. Queen-size sheets don’t fit over it.
If you’re looking to improve your sleep quality without having to buy a whole new mattress, a mattress topper could be a great solution. And the Cool Touch is a great choice for cool, comfy sleep — for cheap!
Would you recommend this mattress to a friend?
Yes! It’s a low financial commitment relative to the value it delivers.
