Features of LUCID 10″ Inch Gel Memory Foam Mattress

Foam Layer

If you’re not familiar with the term, a “gel” mattress might raise some questions: What is it?, How can it help me?, Is it any good? and the like. Let’s clear out every concern right off the bat. A “gel” or “gel-infused” mattress is a fairly new addition to the market and generally refers to any mattress which encloses a combination of gel and traditional memory foam. The LUCID 10″ Gel Memory Foam Mattress is made of two layers, combining 2,5 inches of such gel-infused, ventilated memory foam along with a 7.5-inch high-density foam base for great support with a medium-firm feel.

The mattress is CertiPUR-US-certified, which ensures that the mattress has undergone strict independent tests for safety of environmental stewardship. As a result, you can expect for the mattress to be free of ozone-depleting substances, such as prohibited phthalates, mercury, CFCS, PBDEs, formaldehyde and any other such pernicious substances.

With regard to the mattress’ durability, you can rest assured that only the best of materials are used for its production. The TENCEL blend fabric (10% TENCEL lyocell – 90% polyester), for example, creates an air layer at the top of the mattress which is soft and breathable, while all other auxiliary materials are bound to relieve your pressure points and create a restful sleeping environment.

How it Feels

User satisfaction score
80 %

A non-breathable mattress is something no one should experience during their lifetime. Basically, if the mattress does not breathe, it means it’ll most likely overheat in the night and wake you up in a sweat. If you do not let it cool down for a while, you won’t be able to go back to sleep that easily. Luckily, the temperature-regulating and moisture-controlling TENCEL blend fabric cover creates a very comfortable air layer, which instantly gets rid of the overheating issue found in most low-end mattresses. This mattress is firm all the way around, but you’ll feel that it becomes softer when sitting on the edge rather than lying down because the built-in memory foam reacts to the concentration of weight. The mattress is not necessarily squeaky, but if you’re of considerable weight, you’ll feel that the mattress is in fact quite noisy. The construction of this mattress makes for long-lasting and more resilient foam which stands the unforgiving test of time. It’s built in such a way that motion transfer is kept to a minimum, so if two persons are sharing the bed at the same time, you shouldn’t experience any kind of problem whatsoever.

Overall Sleep Experience

User satisfaction score
80 %

In order to determine the overall sleeping quality that you’re going to have with this mattress, it suffices to look at a few key aspects. For instance, the gel-infused memory foam accurately captures and distributes heat throughout the mattress in order to regulate temperature. The same memory foam layer ensures that the mattress will cradle your body and align your spine to relieve pressure points, thus considerably enhance your sleeping experience. Reviews suggest that this mattress excels in this matter.

The part that concerns most of you is, obviously, how much cash you’ll have to pull out of your pocket to buy this excellent mattress. The short answer is… not that much at all. Most department stores put it up for sale for less than $200, which is a great deal, considering the quality of materials and accreditation it has received until now. In contrast with it, you can also buy the Arctic Dreams’ 10″ Cooling Gel Mattress in the same price range, which works on the same cutting-edge “gel infusion” technology, but with slight dissimilarities here and there.

The fact that the mattress doesn’t overheat is ideal for a restful night’s sleep. Good price. Good quality. Recommended.
Comfortable, and suitable for people on a budget. It doesn’t get better than this.
Lucid 10-inch memory foam mattress is cheap and comfortable, and is mostly suitable for those who haven’t had the chance of experimenting other memory foam mattresses in the past. For less than $200, this is a great first stepping stone.

The Good and The Bad

This mattress offers great value for the price you pay, so much so that they guarantee it by providing you with a 25-year warranty which covers any manufacturing defect (except for the ones covered above) that should appear in this generous space of time.

On the other side of the coin, the fact that the warranty has so many strict requirements could make the warranty claim process quite difficult, but this should be expected considering the aforementioned 25-year period. Furthermore, given the nature of both foam layers, this mattress might not be suitable for side sleepers, although it generally shouldn’t present that much of a problem at all.

The very same nature of the mattress causes what we usually refer to as “off gassing” which is noticeable with most memory foam mattresses out there, including this one. Nowadays, this is becoming less and less of a problem though, in contrast with memory foam mattresses from a couple of years back, which would give off toxic smell for a few months at least.

Shipping, Warranty & Trial Period

As with most mattresses out there, the LUCID 10 Inch Gel Memory Foam Mattress comes vacuum-sealed and rolled in a box. In order to avoid unnecessary injuries and complications, you must follow a few basic tips:

  • Take the mattress to the room where it is going to be used;
  • Carefully remove the box and its protective wrapping;
  • Once the mattress starts expanding, allow 72 hours for it to attain its final size.

Technically speaking, you can use the mattress as soon as it stops expanding, but in order to get the best out of your acquisition, we recommend you allow it to expand to its final size for the best sleeping experience.

Additionally, the mattress benefits from a very generous 25-year warranty, but any defects found to have been caused by time or the customer won’t be covered. A few examples:

  • Normal wear and tear process;
  • Stains;
  • Misuse and improper maintenance;
  • Any kind of unauthorized alterations;
  • Damage caused by shipping.

In what concerns the trial period, there’s not one available per se, but if the mattress does not suit your needs, you can normally return it within 30 days at no additional cost, beside the shipping cost which you will have to cover.
