Analysis Details

Fail Rating Trend

  • 27%
  • Created over 4 days

We counted 33 reviews for this product over the span of 1,072 days, an average of 0.0 reviews per day. If these reviews were created randomly, there would be a 99.9% chance that we would see 1 or fewer reviews on any given day.

However, we see the following 4 days exceeding this threshold:In total, we found that 9 reviews were created on just 4 days. The reviews on these high volume days have rated this product an average of 9.1 while reviews from other days have rated this product an average of 6.2. Based on our statistical modeling, the discrepancy in average rating between these two groups is significant enough to believe that the difference is not due to random chance, and may indicate that there are unnatural reviews.

Brand Repeaters

Warn Sample Reviews

3 of the 33 total reviews for this product mentioned the word "sample" within their review. While we could not find a statistically significant difference between the average rating of reviews that mentioned the word "sample" and those that did not, the presences of any reviews that mention the word "sample" indicates that there may be more, since not all reviewers will disclose that they used a sample within their review.

Pass Deleted Reviews
  • 0
  • Reviews have been deleted
We have not discovered any deleted reviews for this product.

There are a few limitations to keep in mind regarding the Deleted Reviews test:
  1. We don't have a magic ability to collect every single deleted review; we can only identify reviews as deleted if we collect them on one date and then notice they are no longer visible on a subsequent date.
  2. We have no information on reviews that were never published in the first place.
  3. We also don't know why these reviews were removed. It could be action from the platform, personal decision by the review author, part of an entire account closure, even some data error on our part, etc.
