Comparing products in a review?

I personally try to refrain from mentioning another product in a review, i think reviews should be about the product alone but if it is an expensive product and there are cheaper but just as good altrenatives out there i would mention this but not the actual product :)

Hi Coraire,
Both ways are acceptable.
However your approach of focusing on the product and only use comparisons to valid a point seems very sensible.

Tip#1: When posting in the Bargain & Deals section of the Forums and if available, please add a competition or offer end date in the title of your thread.
For example: E:20.05.12, Ren Neroli and Grapefruit Body Cream ?24 Free Travel Size Samples.

Yeah that's kinda what I've been thinking, but at the same time I was worried that reviews are meant to be just focussed on the product itself. I always feel slightly bad when I'm reviewing a product and then go... but actually I prefer this instead xD

But yeah, especially when you have products designed to do the same thing but vary in price a lot it helps out to work out of the value for money more ^^

Hi Coraire

I happily referenec other products in my reviews, naming ones that I think are better or cheaper. My opinion is that if it's relevant it's useful. Lists and so on are a bit dull so I try to keep the references to only a few but overall I think it's worth doing.

Equally useful is to review or list (if it's not there) the products that you reference in reviews.

Wasn't really sure where to ask this, hope it's ok here?

When reviewing something I usually try and focus just on the product itself, however I feel sometimes it's easier to explain and for other people to get a better idea of the product when it's compared to other products in similar & different price ranges etc.

But I was wondering people's general opinions? Do you prefer a review that only focusses on that specific product, or do you prefer things that make comparisons to similar products that you've possibly already tried?
