Buffy launched in 2017, and sells comforters, pillows, sheet sets, and a mattress protector. The company commonly manufactures products using fibers made from eucalyptus, hemp, and recycled plastic. All Buffy products are also vegan and cruelty-free.

Buffy manufactures two comforters: the Buffy Breeze and the Buffy Cloud. The Cloud is the company’s flagship comforter, previously called the Buffy. Both comforters are available in the same size options, but their materials and prices differ. The Buffy Breeze Comforter, which we’ll focus on, is the more expensive comforter option.

The Buffy Breeze Comforter costs more than the Buffy Cloud because the Breeze is filled with natural fibers. The Breeze contains eucalyptus-derived fill, compared to the Cloud’s recycled PET fill. Both comforter covers are made with lyocell derived from eucalyptus.

We’ll cover everything you need to know about the Buffy Breeze to determine if this is the right comforter for you. We’ll examine the Breeze’s materials, construction, pricing, performance, and trial period.

Buffy Breeze Comforter Review Breakdown

The Buffy Breeze is a suitable option for customers seeking a soft, plant-based comforter. The comforter’s cover and fill are both derived from eucalyptus. It’s vegan and cruelty-free, meaning it does not contain animal products (such as down), or products tested on animals.

We’ll focus on the Buffy Breeze Comforter, but also include information about the company’s flagship comforter model, the Cloud. The Cloud feels similar to the Breeze and comes in the same size options. In contrast to the Breeze, the Cloud is filled with recycled synthetic fill. As a result, it has a lower price-point and is slightly less breathable than the Breeze.

Materials and Construction

Both the Buffy Breeze and Buffy Cloud comforters are available in the same three size options. They also share the same shell type: eucalyptus-derived lyocell. The fill material is the only difference between the two comforter models, although both fill types are soft and considered down alternatives.

The Buffy Breeze contains an all-natural fill, compared to the Buffy Cloud’s synthetic fill. The synthetic fill in the Cloud Comforter is made from recycled plastic.

Although they contain different fills, both comforters feel similarly soft. That said, the Breeze’s eucalyptus-based fill is more breathable than the Cloud’s synthetic fill.

Product Size Options Fill Material Shell Material
Buffy Breeze Comforter Twin/Twin XL, Full/Queen, or King/California King Eucalyptus-Based Fiber Fill Lyocell from Eucalyptus
Buffy Cloud Comforter Twin/Twin XL, Full/Queen, or King/California King Recycled PET Fill Lyocell from Eucalyptus

Prices and Sizing

The Buffy Breeze Comforter costs more than the Buffy Cloud Comforter. This price difference is a result of different fill materials. Eucalyptus-derived fiber fills the Breeze, while recycled PET fills the Cloud. All-natural fibers generally cost more to obtain and process than synthetic fibers.

All-natural fibers also tend to be more breathable than synthetic fibers. As a result, the Breeze Comforter may be a better option for those who tend to sleep hot or who live in warmer climates. The Cloud may be a better option for budget-minded shoppers.

Product Price
Buffy Breeze Comforter Twin/Twin XL: $179
Full/Queen: $219
King/California King: $259
Buffy Cloud Comforter Twin/Twin XL: $129
Full/Queen: $159
King/California King: $199

Comforter Performance Ratings

We’ll focus exclusively on the performance of the Buffy Breeze Comforter here.

Overall, sleepers rate the Buffy Breeze Comforter positively. The all-natural comforter feels light and ultrasoft. When given proper care, the Breeze should hold up well over time. It can flatten a bit with use, however, so sleepers may be required to fluff it from time to time to maintain its shape.

The eucalyptus-derived materials that make up the Breeze give it advanced breathability. As a result, the Breeze excels at maintaining temperature neutrality throughout the night. Hot sleepers tend to find that they don’t overheat under the Breeze like they might under other comforters.

Buffy recommends dry cleaning the Breeze Comforter. To protect the comforter shell and avoid frequent washings, using a duvet cover with the comforter is recommended. Instead of washing the comforter regularly, sleepers can instead wash the cover.

Comforter Performance

Quality of Fill

Because of its eucalyptus-derived fill, the Breeze feels soft and breathable. The natural fill is highly durable, and the comfort should hold up well over time. If sleepers find the fill clumping together or flattening, fluffing up the comforter should help return it to its original shape and loft.

Quality of Shell

The Breeze’s shell is made of eucalyptus-based lyocell, which makes it breathable. The plant-based shell is designed to resist dust mites, mold, and other allergens. It’s also soft to the touch, though purchasers may want to use a duvet cover to protect the comforter and extend its lifespan.

Softness

Sleepers using the Buffy Breeze enjoy a fluffy, ultrasoft feel. Although it is a down alternative comforter, the Breeze is also relatively lightweight. It doesn’t feel as heavy as other comforters on the market.

Temperature Control

The Buffy Breeze Comforter excels at staying temperature neutral throughout the night. Its plant-based fiber fill and lyocell shell make the Breeze Comforter highly breathable. This comforter works exceptionally well for people who tend to sleep hot and those who live in warm climates.

Durability

When given proper care, the Buffy Breeze Comforter should last for many years. The comforter should only be dry cleaned, however. If a customer machine or hand washes the Breeze, it could impact the comforter’s durability. Using a duvet cover with the Breeze Comforter may help extend its lifespan.

Care and Cleaning

Buffy recommends dry cleaning as the preferred cleaning method for the Buffy Breeze. Sleepers may risk damaging the comforter if they put it in a washing machine or dryer, or if they wash it by hand.

The best way to protect the Buffy Breeze is to use a duvet cover with it. A duvet cover helps keep the comforter from becoming dirty, so it won’t require cleaning as frequently. It also protects against normal wear and tear.
