This is a 3 inch thick block of gel infused memory foam. Most memory foam toppers available these days are infused with gel to reduce heat retention. Having gel infused into the foam also offer other advantages like better support and longevity. This topper has a density of 3.1 pounds per cubic foot and weighs approximately 25 pounds when shipped (Queen size). It is available standard size; Full, Twin, Queen, King and California King.
Memory foam absorbs body heat but is not so good at dissipating that heat, so as a result the topper gets hot. Beautyrest memory foam mattress topper is infused with gel to improve its heat dissipation. When heated the gel material turns to liquid state, this transformation enables it to absorb large amounts of heat (‘large’ considering the amount of body heat absorbed by the topper which could be 2-5 degrees). Gel is also good at transferring that heat absorbed to the next layer of gel particles, this helps in the successive transfer of heat from the top of the topper to its open textured sides and finally to the atmosphere. So unlike regular memory foam this product by Beautyrest doesn’t have any heat retention problems.
This is a 3.1 pound dense memory foam and offers adequate body support. You will sink into the foam but it will support all your body areas well. This topper is not too firm or soft, it offers a medium level of comfort and works well for a person of average build.

Packaging and more
Like all memory foam toppers this product too is compressed and vacuum sealed. The company recommends that you unwrap it within 72 hours to maximise foam expansion. It will take 48 hours for the foam to full expand, according to the manual, but most customers had it in full size way before that time. The foam has a mild odour and will take a few days of airing out to completely get rid of it.
It comes with a 5 year limited warranty. A moisture proof cover also comes free with this product, it is not actually water proof but ‘moisture proof’. It effectively reduces pressure points, regular use of this topper reduces most back, neck and shoulder pains.
