We’re where you shop before you shop.

We are a team of editors dedicated to helping you digest the enormous e-commerce landscape. We’re regular people, just like you, but it's our job to test products in our daily lives so you don’t have to hope your online purchases perform as intended upon delivery. We spend our days (and nights) scrutinizing, swiping, sipping, and sleeping on new releases and best sellers so your hard-earned money is spent on items we've put through the wringer. From the buzzy to the mundane, we’ll tell you what’s worth their money and what you're better off removing from your cart.


Real reviews for regular people.

We don’t use an algorithm or software to choose the products — they’re all hand-picked, researched, and tested by us. Our team of expert editors spends more than 400 hours per week researching products by:

  • conducting hands-on testing
  • interviewing industry professionals, such as dermatologists and physical therapists
  • studying market research
  • digging through the depths of Instagram, Kickstarter, and press releases to be the first to uncover a groundbreaking new product
  • reviewing consumer feedback and scouring customer reviews


We know way too much about way too much.

bestproductscom verticals

We cover products across 10 different verticals — tech, beauty, fitness, parenting, home, food, appliances, lifestyle… you name it, we cover it! We research, we test, and we recommend the items we'd buy ourselves (and we often do). If you can't find it on BestProducts.com, then we haven’t done our job.

We outline all the best options within a category

  • We offer product comparisons so our readers can make well-informed purchase decisions that meet their target needs and budget.
  • We know not every purchase needs to be a splurge, so we include a budget option for every round-up we produce.

We test new products and write in-depth reviews

  • Our editors spend days — sometimes weeks — calling in products and performing hands-on tests.
  • We often shoot products in-house to give consumers a unique glimpse — and even offer a first, exclusive look — at newly released gadgets.


I Tried It

We put hundreds of products through the ringer in the real world (not in labs!) during our everyday lives. In our I Tried It series, we’re highlighting the products that absolutely blew us away and either live up to or surpass their claims.

Hype Meter

We’ve all seen products that tend to show up everywhere — subway ads, plastered all over Instagram, endorsed by this or that celebrity. We’ve taken on the challenge to test these products to decide: Do they live up to the hype?
