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.
Watch the video below to get a more in-depth review of the Buffy Breeze.
|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|
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.
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.
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.
|Buffy Breeze Comforter||Twin/Twin XL: $179
King/California King: $259
|Buffy Cloud Comforter||Twin/Twin XL: $129
King/California King: $199
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.
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.
The Buffy Breeze Comforter is available online from the Buffy website. Buffy ships the Breeze Comforter to the U.S. and Canada, but not internationally.
Other online retailers, such as Amazon and Bed, Bath, and Beyond, also sell the Buffy Breeze.
Buffy offers free shipping to the U.S., including Hawaii and Alaska. They also ship to Canada, but shipping fees apply. Currently, Buffy does not ship anywhere internationally beyond the U.S. and Canada. Orders typically ship the next business day.
Most Buffy orders ship via FedEx or UPS. FedEx and UPS ground shipments generally take 1 to 5 business days to arrive once shipped.
Buffy orders shipped to P.O. boxes take up to 10 business days to arrive because they ship via the U.S. Postal Service. Orders to Canada may take up to two weeks to arrive.
Buffy comforters come with a 7-night free sleep trial period. During this time, Buffy puts a hold on the customer’s cards for the cost of the product, but does not complete a full transaction. Customers may sleep with the Breeze Comforter for up to 7 nights before deciding if they want to keep it or return it. If they decide to return the comforter within this period, the pending charge is removed within 1 to 2 days.
Buffy comforters also come with a 30-day return period. During this period, customers may initiate a free return by emailing the company.
The difference between the regular return period and the free trial is the nature of the charge on the card. After the free trial ends, the customer is charged. If a customer initiates a return after they have been charged, they’ll receive a refund 7 to 10 days after returning the comforter.
Buffy covers manufacturing defects after the 30-day return period on a case-by-case basis.
Customers should email Buffy if issues arise after the return period.
Damages that are not covered include those from normal wear and tear, cosmetic flaws, burns, stains, and tears caused by the customer.
