Buffy Comforter Review

The Buffy Comforter is the latest bedding product to hit your Facebook feed. This comforter is made with natural eucalyptus. The claim is that having the threads made with eucalyptus makes them more resistant to bacteria, mildew and mites. The Buffy comforter is machine washable which is a huge plus as it allows you to keep your bedding clean and fresh without having to go to the dry cleaner.

I bought a king size Buffy and here are my findings.

Ordering the Buffy Comforter

Right now the only place to order a Buffy is through their website. Shipping was fast and arrived in about 5 days.  You have the option to try before you buy. This means they will place a hold on your credit card where the charge is pending. If you decide you don’t like it, you can return it and Buffy will not charge the card. The other option is that you can pay up front but still have the option to return it for a full refund. I chose the latter.

Unboxing Your Buffy

Like many online brands, the unboxing of the product is a fun experience. Your comforter will arrive in a box like this.

Here’s what the inside of the box looks like.

As you can see you get a free sleep mask that smells like lavender.

My Buffy Findings

The Buffy comforter feels like a polyesters comforter. It is light and silky smooth. The Buffy isn’t too thick either. One drawback of polyester is that they trap heat and don’t breathe causing you to sweat. However this comforter is 70% lyocell which is a natural material made from the wood pulp of eucalyptus trees.  The other 30% is a material developed by scientists called 37.5 technology which is volcanic materials that are infused in the yarns to make the comforter more breathable.

The technology is called 37.5 because that’s your body’s ideal core temperature.

Here’s a picture of the comforter out of the packaging.

As you can see, it isn’t too thick.

Construction of the Buffy Comforter

Here’s the label tag that was on the comforter. As you can see the inside is made with 10% lyocell. Lyocell is according to Wikipedia,  “a form of rayon which consists of cellulose fibre made from dissolving pulp (bleached wood pulp) using dry jet-wet spinning”

Buffy Comforter MatrialsHow does the Buffy Feel?

I was impressed with my first night using the Buffy. It was still soft and light after washing. I really appreciate that it is machine washable. It definitely sleeps cooler than a polyester comforter and is easier to care for than a down comforter.

Although the comforter was good at temperature regulation, you can still overheat a little bit in it. What I do like about it though is that you don’t need to layer up. Just a top sheet and the Buffy are enough to keep you warm throughout the night.

My Buffy Update

I have been sleeping on my Buffy for over a week now and I really enjoy how soft and light it is. Some comforters are just too thick and some even make noise. This one is quiet and easy to move around at night.

This comforter isn’t exactly cheap. At $190 for a king size it is certainly an investment but that’s also why they have a 30 night trial period. If you currently sleep on a  polyester or even down comforter and find it too hot or sweaty, the Buffy is a unique comforter that may provide the relief you are looking for.

If you are looking for a Buffy alternative, you may want to take a look at the Bien Living duvet insert. The fill is 50% Lyocell and 50% hollow siliconized hypoallergenic fiber. And, it only costs $69.99 for a king size.

  1. Hi there I just wrote an honest review about my experience ordering a Buffy and they took it down off their site immediately. Here it is, I want people to be informed:

    “This was the most complex and dissatisfying experience I’ve had shopping online recently. Everywhere on the site it is touted that you can ” try the Buffy for 30 nights” and if you’re not satisfied, return it.

    You have to search deep to read all the fine print that your trial is not actually 30 nights but triggers the day you order it, which in my case arrived 9 days after I ordered it. I thought my return date was the 19th but instead it was the 10th and suddenly I find that the charge on my account has gone through 9 days before I would have expected it. When I email to request a refund I’m told to call them and they’ll arrange a return and refund no problem, but in fact when I finally get to speak to someone today, “we’re sorry it’s out of the return date.”

    Also beware that “your card won’t get charged until after the 30 days when you decide to keep it” actually means the funds will be taken out of your account immediately, for about 5 days I think– a “hold” put on them to make sure you’re covered. So watch out for that surprise.

    All this is in teeny writing in between all of the “risk-free, 30 night trial” and “we won’t charge you until after the 30 days” language.

    I would have thought a company like this first goal would be to make a customer happy and be lenient when it’s so easy to misunderstand all the false advertising.

    So now I’m stuck with a $160 comforter that I find too hot for me for all-season, and the person on the phone was quite rude and honestly just didn’t care. They just care about keeping my $. What a sour experience.

    I am not one to ever write negative reviews, in fact I typically only ever write positive ones, but this whole experience has been frustrating enough that I find it my only recourse and hope to save other people from the same misunderstandings off the bat.”

    1. I thought there policy on the return time was really clear and I’m not a fine print person. But I understand that’s frustrating—sorry that was your experience. The blanket is quite nice I think! I’m on day 2.

    2. Just file a chargeback. If it says free 30 day trial you get 30 days to try it. You can’t try something you have not received yet.

    3. I just experienced the your 30 days starts now without even receiving the product. I canceled ASAP and stated that is not good business practice and that I want the full 30 trial.

    4. Thank you so much for this honest review. I was about to try the 30 day trial. After reading your experience I defiantly won’t be ordering one! Thank you for taking the time to warn the rest of us!

    5. Did they just change this on the website?

      I was just on it and it stayed clearly that the trial date starts at the time of the order and that a hold would be put on the card. No fine print. Clear as day.

  2. Thank you!!! I just ordered one and was not prepared to pay for it yet and I am freaking out! Good to know the money comes back in 5 or so days.

  3. I noticed you were excited it’s machine washable (especially your king size, I would imagine). The Buffy FAQs state this:

    “Buffy can be spot cleaned in the case of an accidental spill.

    We recommend that you dry clean your Buffy to keep it in tip-top shape. Buffy is only machine washable in a large industrial washing machine. Smaller washing machines may damage your Buffy.”

    Have you actually washed yours yet? If so, are you one of the few people who actually own an industrial washing machine?

    The reason I ask is, I am looking for a lightweight down alternative comforter that is not going to get all lumpy and bumpy after I wash it, and I’m not down with paying the cost to dry clean a king sized comforter as routinely as I want it cleaned. I don’t want to add the additional weight of a duvet or comforter cover since I love my quilt on top of the comforter.

    Thanks in advance!

    1. I washed my Buffy in a regular high-efficiency washing machine and didn’t have a problem. I suppose if you have an older washing machine with an agitator that may cause issues.

  4. Does it fit in a duvet cover? I have kids and pets, a white comforter with no protective cover just won’t do! Lol

  5. I love my Buffy. I knew after the first night I was going to keep it. I love the feel of my Buffy and so will not use a duvet cover. I keep it covered with another comforter during the day. Then just remove the second comforter when I sleep. I spent 150.00 for my Queen buffy. If I need to clean it I will take it to the dry cleaners.
