Our Mission

Consumer Tested Reports aims to provide all the necessary information about various types of consumer products to help consumers make smart decisions. Nowadays, many marketing claims in ads are misleading and overhyped, leading consumers to waste money. We want to put a stop to this and protect consumers’ interests. That’s why we’ve established a lab to test and research popular consumer products online.

We provide reports to consumers that reveal the truth. We recommend which products work and which don’t, helping consumers spend their money wisely.

How We Test and Rate Products

Our team looks at two main questions: Is this product good for you, and if yes, who should get it? We’ll also let you know if there’s a better option and why. We dig into user reviews to add more insights to help you decide.

Our reviewers spend quality time with each product, seeing how well it fits its intended users. For example, we’ll jog with a fitness tracker, use a LED mask for weeks, or try out a neck massager ourselves to see how effective it is.

You can learn more about how we test on our “How We Test” page.
