Hey y’all! Guess what today is? It’s my birthday! Unfortunately, I can’t say that I’m doing anything fun or exciting. Honestly, I’m probably at work as you are reading this. But I’ll make up for it over the weekend. It’ll likely include some antique shopping and sushi – 2 of my favorite things! So many people told me that after 40, you start having aches and pains. I hate to say it, but they were right. I’ve noticed that each year after turning 40, I add to my list of aches. But I didn’t come on here to complain. I’m here to share a mattress review on the Lucid Hybrid that has helped me get a good night’s sleep, despite the aches and pains!
It’s so hard to pick out a new mattress, right!? Especially if you are ordering it online and you don’t get to try it out on the showroom floor. The mattresses in a box that are delivered to your doorstep are the trend these days. But how do you know which one is the best?
If you’ve been around for a bit, you know that my husband recently had his 3rd back surgery and we have struggled to find a mattress that he could get a full night’s sleep on. He usually gets up several times a night due to pain. Because of this, he started doing lots of research and reading lots of reviews. His mattress review research led him to Lucid Mattresses time and time again.

I reached out to Lucid Mattress to see if they would be willing to do a collaboration and to my delight, they were! Although I was given this mattress in exchange for social media posts, I want you to know that this mattress review is comprised of my honest thoughts and all opinions are my own. I would never recommend something to my readers that I would not purchase myself. You peeps are like my family and I want the best for you!
I decided on the Lucid 12” bamboo charcoal and aloe vera hybrid in a king size.
Our previous mattress was a gel foam that I paid twice as much for. I’m a side sleeper and honestly, I was never able to get comfortable on that mattress. It was very firm and every time I would turn over during the night, it would take too long to conform back to my body and it would wake me up because I couldn’t get comfortable.
Mattress Review: Lucid Hybrid
Comfort is top priority when I’m looking for a mattress! And the Lucid Hybrid has really measured up. It’s hybrid design provides support while also providing the plushness that I desire in a mattress. It has really helped with my neck and shoulder pain, thus allowing me to get a better night’s sleep.
The Lucid Hybrid mattress is budget friendly! To get a king size mattress for less than $500, plus free shipping, is pretty affordable compared to the prices you’d find in a big box furniture store.
Most memory foam mattresses have a strong chemical smell when you open them from the packaging. We purchased one for my son’s room recently and the strong odor lingered for almost a week. There was absolutely no odor from the Lucid Hybrid when we opened it. We even slept on it the first night (even though it’s recommend to let it fully “inflate” for 24-48 hours) and we never smelled anything.
I’ll be honest, I’ve noticed that I have been sleeping hotter since we’ve had this mattress. I’m not sure if it’s the mattress or the new alternative down comforter that we started using the same night that we slept on the new mattress. I need to try my old comforter again to compare and see if I can figure out where the heat is coming from, but I’ve yet to do that. I have read that memory foam mattresses tend to sleep a little warmer. If you are a hot sleeper, you may want to consider the Lucid Latex Hybrid, as it sleeps cooler.
Overall, my husband and I are very pleased with the Lucid Hybrid mattress and it is definitely something we would purchase for ourselves and recommend to our friends and family. I hope this mattress review was helpful if you are in the market for a new mattress. If you have any specific questions, please feel free to reach out to me!
Also, if you’ve been around a bit, you probably noticed that we have a new bed and headboard. Y’all!!! This has been one of my most favorite DIYs yet and I can’t wait to share it with you all! I’ll have a DIY for the bed frame, headboard, and bed skirt coming soon, so stay tuned!
Thanks for stopping by! Be blessed friends!! xoxo

Happy Birthday 🎈🎂🎉 Heather. I hope you had a wonderful day. You had some gorgeous weather also! Sorry I’m a day late, some of my emails keep going into the junk mail and I can’t figure out why.. ugh!! We have been looking for a new mattress, our Temperpedic is 13 years old 😬🤦🏻♀️…. I agree with you, after 40, it’s aches all over the body. I am glad there are Chiropractors and Massage Therapists, haha.
Thanks so much, sweet friend!!! It was a great day! My chiropractor has a massage therapist in his office (and the insurance covers it!). 🙂
