It’s a hot girl summer – and unfortunately, that also means hot, sweaty nights (and not in a sexy way).
When I lived in Seattle, I had a very warm, down-filled comforter, which was perfect for Seattle’s cold six-month-long winters. But once I moved to California in June, that comforter made my bed into a sweaty death trap!
Thankfully, Buffy offered to send me their new temperature-regulating Breeze comforter to review.

Sleeping Sustainably with Buffy
Over the past few years, I’ve put a lot of thought into how different parts of my lifestyle impact the environment…but truthfully, I hadn’t thought much about how and where I sleep. That changed when I discovered Buffy!
Buffy‘s comforters, bedding, and pillows are made with sustainable materials, such as recycled water bottles and eucalyptus, which takes less water and land to grow than cotton. Because they don’t use down, they’re also cruelty-free and vegan.
Putting Buffy’s Breeze Comforter to the Test!
Buffy’s Breeze comforter is made from 100% eucalyptus, which is a) temperature-regulating, b) breathable, and c) cruelty-free.
softness & feel:
My first impression was that the comforter was unexpectedly heavy; I’ve been used to the lightness of down. I love my blankets to have some weight because that makes me feel super cozy and tucked in at night. Plus, some doctors recommend weighted blankets for anxiety and better sleep (don’t take my word for this, though!).
This comforter is soft and plush, although more dense compared to the airiness of down. The eucalyptus fabric has a smooth feel, like rayon (which, technically, it is). I put a cotton duvet cover on it to protect it while I sleep, but the bare comforter would feel nice against skin and probably temperature regulate better without the cotton (but your girl doesn’t want to splurge on a new duvet right now).
An added bonus of the smooth eucalyptus rayon is that the comforter is very quiet. No rustling to disturb your beauty sleep, either!
Most importantly, I haven’t woken up in a sweat to throw my Buffy Breeze off the bed! Summer night temps here have been hovering around 60 degrees Fahrenheit, although I would guess that my apartment is closer to 70 degrees inside – that annoying temperature range where sleeping without blankets gets chilly but sleeping with a traditional comforter gets too hot. The Breeze comforter does a great job of keeping me a cozy temperature all night.
This review is seconded by the boyfriend, who used to wake up all the time complaining that he barely slept because it was too hot. Since we’ve been using our Buffy Breeze, he’s had zero complaints. Compared to our down comforter, he says, “It’s cooler. I like it,” …which pretty much sums up my entire review.
