The Review Process: How We Shortlist the Products

The process of shortlisting sleep products and related products is a challenging task. There are so many choices, brands, styles, prices that it can be overwhelming to find the right one.

But, we’ve done the hard work for you!

Our experts take the time to research the best suppliers, find any potential issues with quality or price and then hand-pick what we think are the highest quality items available at that time. They will help guide your purchase as you decide on which products are right for you!

Here’s a sneak peek of the process the products have to go through in order to get a spot in our lists of best ones.

  • Tried and Tested: We get the products, we try them on, we test them in suitable environments, and we share the results with you. Sometimes, we get the products for free from the sellers or brands, and sometimes we purchase them to check if they stand true to their claims.
  • Window Shopping: We also go to stores and check out the size and design of the products to observe and compare what they claim to deliver without actually buying them.
  • Third-Party Reviews: Sometimes, the brand owners share the products with third-party reviewers who can test the products in much better environments, like testing mattresses for several nights, or spilling water on a waterproof topper. This simply helps us to test products to their limits.
  • Online Digging: Whenever we are unable to get the products in our hands, we dig through the internet, from the brand websites to e-commerce stores and even online reviewing platforms, to fetch genuine reviews from real people to bring you the most honest feedback of the products.

Moreover, all general information, including health-related advice and precautions, is thoroughly sourced from credible websites and certified practitioners.
