Good Gear editors research and test every product featured in our reviews and guides so we can provide you with sincere recommendations from a personal perspective. Our review process includes hands-on testing, expert opinions, relevant studies, and extensive research of third-party verifications, certifications, accreditations, and awards.

We’re not regurgitating PR talking points from a brand, and we’re not testing products in a lab. We test wellness products and technologies in our own homes, on our own bodies, in our everyday lives, and over time.

Our hands-on approach allows us to evaluate emerging wellness products and technologies across different performance factors, and provide our readers with accurate, data-based recommendations that are contextual to their everyday lives. We also include our personal tips for selecting and maintaining the products we feature so you’ll have the insider scoop on how to make things work for you and last for good. 

Our Business Model

We’re an independently-owned, women-led media brand on a sincere mission to support you in your care of yourself and your community. Our work is primarily reader-supported through affiliate links. If a reader clicks on a link on our site and purchases a product from one of our affiliate partners, we may receive a commission. However, if a reader returns the product, the commission is rescinded. We never promote inferior products based on current or future affiliate companies requests and only endorse products we think our readers will actually use and love.
