Product Review - The Buff

By Ozhene @papaver
I received an email some weeks ago now asking me if I would like to trial a Buff.  I knew what a Buff was because of a previous conversation with some gardening friends some months previously, but other than a quick browse around the website at that point I had not gone any further.  So when the email arrived I had another browse around the website and thought it was something I would like to try.
Then there was the tricky part, I had not realised how tricky this next part would be.  I had to choose which one.  This was not easy, there is a Buff for everyone, but what kind of Buff person am I?  Then I saw the one that called to me, the one that made me smile, it was the  JD Time to Nest Buff  from the Julie Dodsworth Collection.

It is a very pretty Buff, it is also very useful.  It became, very quickly, a constant companion as it packs away very small and weighs virtually nothing. It is, above all, practical.  One day I was out garden visiting and whilst it has been really warm recently an unexpected cloud covered the sun and it was suddenly not as warm as it was.  I had no coat or jumper as it was meant to be a warm day, but there was now a chill.  Out came the Buff and I wore it as an impromtu scarf, it provided just that bit of chill-defense I needed.  
A week or so later and the heat has really kicked in, we are suddenly having that elusive thing called a summer.  On a hot sweaty day in the garden the Buff is very good for mopping a sweaty brow; and yes, the Buff is very washable.
Product Review - The Buff The website gives different examples of what a Buff can be used for and it is truly a very versatile thing.  I have worn mine a time or two as a head-scarf to keep the sun off my head when I have wandered out leaving my sun hat behind.  I have also been using it as a hair band as I am currently growing out my fringe and it is perfect for keeping my hair out of my eyes when I am working in the garden.

I really like this buff, it is one of those simple yet brilliant ideas.  You can use it in so many different ways and it looks good. I am now thinking of buying a couple as Christmas presents for people who I know would love one (is it too soon for the C word??).
So what kind of Buff person are you?
(and can I have a nod of thanks for not making any double entendre buff jokes)
