Hi, friends. You know what's the worst? Waking up in the middle of the night because you're sweating from a hot comforter. No one enjoys this.
One day I was scrolling through Facebook and saw an ad for a "cooling comforter" from a company called Buffy. Excuse me, what??
It's kind of a steep price ($150) for my cheap self, so I reached out to Buffy and they gave me one to try. It's worth noting, though, that customers get a "30-day free trial" and can always return it before then to avoid the cost.
So what even makes this "cool" and comfy? It's made from eucalyptus trees instead of cotton.
The comforter is environmentally friendly and cruelty-free, so I guess buying this makes you a better person? Tbh this didn't sway me to want it, but it's a nice benefit.
So I finally got mine in the mail and I was PUMPED to try it out. I had very high hopes.
First things first, this thing is SO EFFING COMFORTABLE. I can't even really explain it, it's just like a cloud.
On night one, it was very comfortable, but not all that cooling. But to be fair, I am in NYC and my AC was broken. So there was no cool air circulating in my apartment in the first place.
When I finally got my AC fixed, I had a completely different experience.
I. DID. NOT. SWEAT. And I had my first great night of rest in weeks.
I shared the blanket with my boyfriend and we both slept very comfortably. Our combined body heat didn't seem to affect us.
The one thing that bums me out is that you technically COULD put a duvet cover on it, but then it kind of cancels out the whole cooling thing.
Bonus: My cat loves this comforter. She cuddles in it by herself, which is not normal. Nala stans.
So, is it worth trying? I say YES. But definitely read all the reviews online first before purchasing.
