Our Editorial Process
At Sleep Junkie, our editorial process goes beyond just proofreading for grammar and spelling errors. We submit our content to our expert review board, who vet it for medical accuracy and ensure that it’s free of bias or misinformation. This process guarantees that we only present the most current and reliable information on sleep-related topics.
In addition to our own assessments, we diligently read through customer reviews and gather feedback from verified product owners to present a balanced and comprehensive view of each product. Our commitment to transparency and objectivity ensures that our readers receive the most accurate and reliable information possible.
Our testing methodology at Sleep Junkie is comprehensive and involves multiple layers of evaluation to ensure the most accurate and useful reviews for our readers.
Led by Kristina Hindes, our Certified Sleep Coach, the process begins with physically testing mattresses, where Kristina’s expertise in sleep science and product knowledge plays a crucial role. She leads the assessment of motion isolation, temperature neutrality, and overall comfort, bringing her professional insights into the mix.
In addition to Kristina’s expert evaluation, we incorporate feedback from a diverse group of consumer product testers. These testers include side, back, stomach, and combination sleepers of various body types, ensuring that our reviews cater to all sleepers regardless of weight or sleep position. Their real-world experiences add a valuable dimension to our reviews, reflecting a wide range of user needs and preferences.
We also consider feedback from brand reviews, medical experts, influencers, and users to offer a well-rounded view of each product. This multifaceted approach helps readers make more informed decisions by providing perspectives from different angles.
Our Expert Review Board, which includes Kristina and other sleep professionals, then reviews the test results to ensure their accuracy and relevance to the latest sleep information. They scrutinize the findings, adding a layer of professional validation to our testing process.
Moreover, we compare the test results of the reviewed products with their competitors, highlighting unique features and aspects that set them apart. This comparative analysis is crucial in identifying what makes each product stand out in the market.
At Sleep Junkie, we are committed to staying current. We periodically update our reviews and re-test products if there are significant changes in product design, and features, or if new models are released. Kristina and our team of consumer product testers play a pivotal role in these updates, ensuring that our reviews always reflect the latest in sleep science and product innovation.
