Research & Product Review Methodology— How We Curate The Best Products
There’s a lot of stuff out there; some would say too much. If you have been buying many items that you don’t especially need and, in some instances, don’t even especially like, you know the feeling.
At Luxe Digital, we take our product selection and product recommendations seriously. We research and audit thousands of products from all over the globe, test hundreds of the cream of the luxury crop and narrow those down to the very, very best for you.
Luxe Digital is a well-informed and regularly updated digital destination to discover, explore and be inspired. We believe in shopping better and are here to help you purchase that little more consciously.
We are promoting an entirely new luxury shopping mindset—beyond bling. Instead, we are refining luxury shopping into an experience that puts sustainability, intention, and timelessness at the forefront of your shopping habits. This means choosing carefully considered pieces that are well crafted, high quality, and timeless. Pieces that will bring a smile to your face for many years to come.
Fewer, better. Our ethos is as simple as that.
We cast an attentive eye over the future of luxury; and when we unearth better brands that have us head-over-heels, we can’t wait to share them with you so you can experience their goodness for yourself.
For us, conscious, elevated living brings us back down to Earth.
Whether keeping an artisan tradition alive, focusing on plastic-free practices, or profit-sharing with local communities (or all of the above, ideally) the new age of luxury brands is a welcome transformation.
The spotlight is on, and it leaves no room for secrets.
Join us for luxury, reimagined.
How do we select brands?
As luxury insiders, at Luxe Digital, we are constantly scouring the luxury landscape for the finest options on the market. We feature a diverse suite of lifestyle and luxury brands, products and experiences, all exclusively hand-picked by the Luxe Digital team.
So how exactly does a product makes its way to our site?
First thing first: we thoroughly audit and diligently research every product, regardless of a brand’s reputation. Why is this important?
We want to support brands that, like us, value honesty, authenticity, and genuinely do what they say they do. No matter whether they are the Rolexes of the luxury world or new emerging brands.
Our core values
We at Luxe Digital explore and test a lot of luxury and lifestyle products on the regular. And there are a few things that get us going. One: exceptional craftsmanship. Second: made to last. Third: money well spent.
These core values are at the core of our consideration phase for all the product reviews.
- Timelessness—in style and durability
- Good value, and even better values
How we test the products
Once we have independently selected the products from brands and retailers we trust, we move to the next step: testing.
Now, it’s time to get our hands on the products: In some cases, brands provide us with products on loan or on a permanent basis. In other cases, we purchase the products via regular retail channels.
Whether a newly launched product, or a highly rated bestseller, we test products in real-life situations–not in a lab–meaning we use them regularly in our own homes and offices in the same way as you would. Why? Because this way, we get a real sense of how the products perform and genuinely understand how they fit into people’s daily lives.
Our exhaustive hands-on tests for luxury products allow us to present informed, actionable product recommendations for our readers.
How well does the product perform? Does the product offer the features and functionality that we expect and want? We analyze quantitative data that help us evaluate how well a product performs against the manufacturer’s claims but also allow us (and you) to compare like for like.
We understand no product is ever 100% perfect for everyone. So for our roundups and best-in-class lists, we evaluate and select our “best of” winners across a wide spectrum of prices and a set of performance criteria that vary by product type (think durability, functionality, design, and more).
However, the ultimate question we ask with every product reviewed, rated, and ranked is whether or not the product deserves your attention. In short: Is it money well spent?
Why you can trust us
Supported by an international network of luxury experts and insiders (not to mention our sister company is an award-winning luxury digital agency with a coveted list of luxury clients), members of our team know the ins and outs of the luxury industry and what to look for when it comes to value and quality.
We obsessively research products, interview industry experts, use information and data from multiple reliable sources, run extensive in-house product testings, and analyze people’s reviews from leading online retail sites to gauge product users’ likes and dislikes. This thoughtful process of curation and real-world product testing ensures accuracy and ultimately gives you trustworthy product recommendations.
