I mean even if a few thousand people are buying a gel mattress does this mean it is a good quality gel mattress?

The company says the mattress is rolled and packed in the box so it can be easily taken out of the box. The company claims 96% of the customer base keeps the mattresses. If you are not happy with the mattress contact the company freely and they will help you to resolve your issue.

Feedback: The customer says they struggled on a spring mattress for two years the mattress dug into their hips and knees and their pressure points felt like they were on fire. She would get up not wake up because she would not be able to sleep. Then she bought this mattress and she has slept through the night and she has not tossed and turned. She is a side sleeper but she moves all over the place. She looks forward to sleeping through the night on this new mattress. She bought her 8-year-old a mattress as well. The customer rated the mattress 5-stars. The customer writes this is the best mattress she has ever owned and slept on.

This customer says she really likes the mattress. It is not too soft and it is not too firm for the client it is just right. She is glad she did not buy the $900.00 dollar mattress and the customer rated the mattress 5-stars. It would have been nice if the customer would have written more detail about why she liked the mattress so much. She rated the mattress 5-stars and this means she really liked the mattress but beyond the price, she does not detail why she loves the mattress so much. This review will not help to sell mattresses because it just not have enough selling points in it to convince a customer to buy the mattress.

Best Gel Mattress

The customer says it is a win-win deal for her and her husband. She has fibromyalgia (this is not a fun condition. It is a chronic disorder that causes body-wide musculoskeletal pain, fatigue and it makes specialized areas of and legs when she woke up in the morning. the body tender) and the husband has back pain. Both are average-sized people. The wife suffered from numbness in her arms and legs. This numbness she would wake up with every morning she decided it was time to get a new mattress.

The wife thoroughly researched new mattresses online and she read the many, many reviews written about mattresses. This process she conducted before they actually when shopping for a new mattress. The customer could not find a 12″ thick mattress so they settled on this one. They bought a 2″ topper and a cover which are both helping tremendously. The couple decided to sleep on the softer side of the mattress which is not too soft and it is not too firm. The mattress is just right on the firmness level. The mattress is not hot because the wife has hot flashes and she would know if the mattress was causing heat. The customer does not sink into the mattress and she has no problem getting out of this mattress in the morning. The customer is also sensitive to smell and she says the mattress does not smell at all. The mattress was reasonably priced as well.

The customer says since she has been sleeping on this mattress the numbness in the legs and shoulders has disappeared and she never expected the new mattress to be able to alleviate this problem. The customer rated the mattress 5-stars.

The customer researched the mattress before she bought the mattress. She said it came quickly and in good condition. The customer slept on the firm side the first two nights she owned the mattress. She flipped the mattress over to the softer side and she has never looked back. She loves this mattress and she is so happy she bought the mattress. The only regret she has is that she did not buy the mattress sooner. She rated the mattress 5-stars. This may be a mattress that is flippable and it can be slept on both sides.

Revel Hybrid Cool Mattress (Cal King), Featuring All Climate Cooling Gel Memory Foam and LiftTex Alternative Latex (20 year warranty)

q? encoding=UTF8&ASIN=B07CXXHK1F&Format= SL250 &ID=AsinImage&MarketPlace=US&ServiceVersion=20070822&WS=1&tag=balancemebeau 20&language=en US - Best Gel Mattress Reviewsir?t=balancemebeau 20&language=en US&l=li3&o=1&a=B07CXXHK1F - Best Gel Mattress Reviews

Benefits and Uses: The mattress is constructed of 3 layers. The first layer is gel foam that will keep the mattress cool and it is 3″ thick. The second layer is 2″ latex foam that has ideal airflow through it. The third layer is a 7″ durabase foam that will last a long time. The mattress will maintain an even cool temperature and it will resist external temperature changes. If it is winter time it will not harden and if it is summertime it will not soften. It keeps its basic form all year round. The middle layer will support and keep the spine aligned and supported. The mattress offers extreme comfort, convenience, and quality at a fraction of the cost of other comparable mattresses. The mattress is very reasonably priced. It is made in the United States and the company offers a 20-year warranty on the mattress. Which is a good warranty to have on the mattress? The mattress is vacuum-packed and shipped right to you and it is easy to remove from the shipping box and to set it up.

Feedback: The customer says the mattress came in a compact-sized box and she needed a friend to help her carry it up 6 flights of stairs. The mattress was easy to take out of the box and to set up. The customer likes the mattress and it expanded to its original size fairly quickly. The customer writes the mattress emitted no odor.

This is a very broad and generic review. The customer says they love the bed and they wake up pain-free. For the first time ever they wake up pain-free and they feel like they were sleeping on a cloud. The customer also rated the mattress 5-stars. This is all good and the customer really liked the mattress but the person details hardly any of the reasons why the mattress is so good. It always helps to detail as many if not all the reasons why you like the mattress so much and how it as help you sleep better. You see you need to detail as much information as you can to convince people to buy the mattress. People who are looking to purchase a mattress are looking for a better quality mattress. They may be waking up every morning in chronic pain because the old mattress is wearing out. Or maybe their old mattress is too soft and they feel like they are sinking into the Grand Canyon when they lay on the old mattress.

The person may be looking to buy another new mattress because the mattress they just bought is not working out for them. For whatever reason, they need to buy a new mattress they need to know that this mattress they are looking to purchase will not give them the same problems the current mattress is giving them. The person who wrote the above review needs to detail all the reasons why they love the mattress so much. The person who is looking to purchase the mattress may find the very reason in a review that would cause them to buy the mattress. Without any pertinent information written in a review, it will not help to sell the mattress.

This review definitely cannot be relied on this customer was given this mattress for free and of course, they are going to write a 5-star positive review. The customer is a vine reviewer on Amazon Because of the reviewer’s ranking they were invited into the vine program. Amazon will invite this person to write a review and receive a free product donated by the vendor. In this case, the reviewer received a free twin-size mattress. The customer says the mattress is so comfy and the customer and her husbands are hot sleepers. But they are able to sleep together on this twin-size mattress with no problem. The customer says they finished all the projects in the bedroom and they set down the bed frame. They put this bed in the guest room and the customer was very upset they did this. She says they will buy a bigger size mattress of the same kind and put it in their bedroom. What else is the customer going to write but a raving 5-star review about a mattress they received for free. Are they going to write a blistering, negative one-star review? I would put no stock in this review because it is obviously a biased review.

Here we go again another review written by a vine member on Amazon. The customer says they are a vine member and they have replaced every mattress in the house through the vine program. This means that they received free mattresses because they are a member of the vine program. They say this is the best mattress of all the mattresses they received. It is firm and soft but not too soft. It is a very comfortable mattress and it is not squishy like the customer was afraid it would be. The mattress is very forgiving and absorbs pressure from the part of the body that may have too much weight put on it.

The customer has been sleeping on the mattress for two weeks and it is still a wonderful mattress to sleep on. The customer undoubtedly rated the mattress 5-stars but getting all the mattresses for free what else is the customer supposed to rate the mattress. Also, what else are they going to write but a raving review when they receive the mattress for free. I put no stock in these types of mattresses because they are biased and they are not objective at all. People in the vine programs should not be allowed to write reviews because they are not going to be objective or honest reviews. A person will say good things about a mattress when they get it for free. It seems like the company is using these positive reviews to tout their mattresses and manipulate people into buying the mattress it is not fair.

Feedback: One problem with this mattress is an expensive mattress compared to some of the other mattresses. The customer suffers from Chronic Fatigue or Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (These are the same names for the same condition. The person who has this condition suffers from chronic fatigue and other long term medical disabilities.) The customer is a young man who weighs 230 lbs. and he has been bedridden and housebound for years. He does not have a lot of money because he cannot work and he has no family support.

Gel Mattress Reviews

Feedback: The mattress has had over 2,000 reviews written about it so this is a famous mattress on the market. The customer battles with rheumatoid arthritis (This is a disease that causes inflammation of the joints and the fingers, wrists, and hands become deformed from the inflammation. The inflammation will cause these parts of the body to bend and twist) She says her body is in chronic pain but when she sleeps on this mattress it makes the body feel better. She even sleeps on the sore parts of the body. She wakes up at 7:30 am and she feels like she has slept in until 11:00 a.m. She rates the mattress 5-stars.

LUCID 10 Inch Gel Memory Foam Mattress – Dual-Layered – CertiPUR-US Certified – 10-Year Warranty – Queen

q? encoding=UTF8&ASIN=B00474X5DO&Format= SL250 &ID=AsinImage&MarketPlace=US&ServiceVersion=20070822&WS=1&tag=balancemebeau 20&language=en US - Best Gel Mattress Reviewsir?t=balancemebeau 20&language=en US&l=li3&o=1&a=B00474X5DO - Best Gel Mattress Reviews

Benefits and Uses: The mattress has a gel foam top layer that is 2.5 inches thick and it has a layer of base foam that is 7.5 inches thick. It will contour to the body and it will relieve pressure points helping you to have a night’s sleep free of pain.

Feedback: This mattress had over 5,000 reviews written about it so it has been on the market for a while. The customer rated the mattress 2-stars because it never expanded back to full-size. The cover was too loose and baggy so the customer returned the mattress and Amazon took care of the customer. The customer says Amazon has good customer service. This problem sounds like the manufacturer had made a defective mattress. This should not reflect on the quality of the company’s mattresses because one was defective.


The article has covered some of the best gel foam mattresses on the market. Some of the mattresses received thousands of reviews and others received a handful of mattresses. But do not let the thousands of reviews on some mattresses or the lack of reviews on other mattresses influence your decision to buy or not to buy that specific mattress.
