Sleep. We all want more of it, right? We crave it all day long, daydreaming about it while we slave away in front of our computers. And then we finally, finally slink under the covers and shut our eyes… only to be, UGH, too hot. So then, we ditch our duvets and grab a throw blanket and we’re freaking freezing. Sleep shouldn’t be this complicated! And yet it is.
This was my nightly routine for the past few years, until Buffy came into my life. Who is Buffy, you ask? Well, she’s a cloud-like, fluffier-than-comprehensible comforter, that’s who she is. And she’s racked up — as of today — 11,092 reviews from consumers calling her everything from “heavenly” to the “absolute softest and coziest comforter ever!!!”
These aren’t your standard reviews, y’all. The people who have tried Buffy out — because that’s what you do, you don’t pay for it until you’ve actually kept for it 30 days — are off-the-charts raving about their experiences, and her ability to keep you just-the-right-amount warm in a way that’s working for those who live in both freezing and sweltering climates.
So, I tried one. After clicking “start my free trial,” four business days later Buffy arrived in a vacuum-sealed bag housed in a slim cardboard box. (Like mattresses and rugs and couches, comforters now come in a box!)
Right out of the box, Buffy is cool to touch. She’s not lumpy like some of her down competitors, and her outer shell fabric is legit soft-as-butter. At night, she’s just as the reviewers claimed, ultra-breathable. I was not too hot, not too cold, I was juuuuust right. And one more detail I never knew I cared about — Buffy is quiet! I never realized that my last duvet insert was noisy, but apparently it was because in addition to being fluffy as a cloud, Buffy is silent.
More to like: Our girl is also totes eco-friendly. That’s right, Buffy’s inner fill isn’t cotton or down or a chemical-rife polyester, but rather is comprised of fibers spun from recycled plastic bottles that are, for those of you who are certainly asking, BPA- and phthalate-free. Those fibers are then air blown, creating the cloud-like experience that all the reviewers are going on about. Plus, the aforementioned outer shell is made from the sustainably-sourced pulp of Australian eucalyptus trees. (Nerdy note: Eucalyptus naturally repels mold, mildew, dust mites, and other microbes or pathogens, which can accumulate in traditional comforters!)
In terms of downsides, there aren’t many. Unfortunately, the blanket can only be spot-cleaned, so there’s that. But after a few nights of sleeping with Buffy “naked,” I put her inside a duvet cover to keep her nice and neat.
What’s really helping me sleep better, however is the fact that so far Buffy has saved 2.5 million bottles from ending up in oceans and landfills. What’s better than that? Well, a great night’s sleep. But luckily we can have both, thanks to Buffy. Shop her below.
