Home is where the heart is. Whether that is your own body, your bedroom, or your planet, Brentwood Home‘s products cater to the wellbeing of all the places you call home. Their impressive commitment to using healthy and ethically-sourced materials, all inspired by the love for the natural world and our home in California leaves no doubt in the consumer’s mind that their purchases are beneficial for the health of the planet.

Our Scouts were given the opportunity to test the supplementary claim. They tested the Brentwood Home’s products to see how they fit into their lifestyle to make their homes more sustainable as well as how their comfort and functionality improve their health. Here’s what they had to say… (SPOILER ALERT: it’s really good!)

At Brightly, we take our mission to ensure all of the brands and products we recommend to you are ethical and sustainable, and we love involving our community in the process. Want to join the next product swap? Join our Scouts program!

   Product I Reviewed:

    Oceano Wedge Pillow

   

    

   Star Rating: ★★★★☆


"The size and shape are great. Fits well on many sized beds. It’s firm, but not hard. I like that you can flip it around to use it at multiple angles depending on where you’re sitting and what you’re doing. I also like that the cover is made from Tencel, which has both soft and sustainable. The muted colors are simple enough for my decor and would likely work for many households, but it would have been ideal to either select the cover color or have a completely solid option. I like that all their other products seem to be made from naturally occurring materials and are vetted as low-VOC. ( Volatile organic compounds)"

    Crystal Cove Yoga Bolster

   

    

   Star Rating: ★★★★★


"I have never owned a yoga pillow, but this is a fabulous first for me! I love that this pillow is so firm compared to standard pillows because it allows me to keep my posture when using it. The soft exterior case of the pillow is removable, which makes it easy to clean! I also really like the handles on each side of the pillow which makes it easy to pick up and place down on the floor. The packaging protected it from potential moisture, but perhaps if the plastic was a recycled/reused material, that would be better! "

    Crystal Cove Yoga Bolster

   

    

   Star Rating: ★★★★☆


"Typically bolsters are filled with a thick pillow-y material, but Brentwood’s is filled with buckwheat hulls. I think this is unique and definitely gives it a form-fitting quality. I love the fabric and design! It’s soft, durable cotton with stitching that makes the pillow look like a million clouds. For a bolster, it certainly does the job! I tried a heart opener with it and felt like it formed perfectly to my body, allowing for a comfortable stretch. I wish it was lighter so I could bring outside of my home for meditation or yoga practice."

" This is my first wedge pillow, but it is amazing! It has a very soft cover and is large enough to be multi-functional."
