Review - Chemist Direct

When the lovely people at Chemist Direct got in touch and asked me if I was interested in doing a review I couldn't wait to get choosing products.

Chemist Direct is an online chemist that is delivered directly to your door.  They are a GPhC registered and regulated pharmacy. They offer well known, loved brands and products at competitive prices. Your order is delivered for free, in the UK, if your total is over £40. Sometimes it can be a little embarrassing going to the chemist so to have an online option is great! Chemist direct also have an online doctor section which I can imagine will be very useful for some people although I didn't try this service out.

When looking for products I found the website very easy to use. All the departments are broken down into helpful sections, you can also search for a product at the top.

I had a £50 voucher to spend and this is what I got for the money.

As you can see I got quite a lot and  am very happy with the items. Below are a list of the items plus what I paid.

Plasters 53p
Hand and Surface Sanitiser £1.50
Handwash £1.00
Herbal Essences Shampoo £1.79
Herbal Essences Conditioner £1.66
Garnier bb cream £6.99
Dentinox teething gel £2.09
First Aid Cream £1.39
Snufflebabe £1.98
Rainbow coloured plasters 59p
L'Oreal Gradual Tan £5.29
Banana Boat Baby Lotion SPR50 x2 £5.99 Buy one get one free offer
Carmex £2.36
Simple night cream £4.49
Wet ones £1

Oral B Toothbrushes £1
Right Guard £1
Right Guard women £1
Colgate toothpaste £1
Heat defence £2.49
Simple wipes £2.99
Calpol £2.99

All together I saved over £25 on the RRP of the above products. My total was £51.07. When paying for additional £1.07 I chose to pay with Paypal. I got charged £2.25 instead of £1.07. I was refunded the difference 6 days later when my parcel was sent.

As for delivery times... I ordered late Friday night. I got an email the following Tuesday saying one item was out of stock and it would be in stock Friday. I then got an email on Thursday saying my order was due for delivery Friday. So it took exactly a week to come. I wish that there online stock was more correct. When I ordered all my items were in stock so I was disappointed to receive the out of stock email. The items came in a brown box with chemist direct tape. The fragile items were wrapped in bubble wrap and the other items were placed on top.

Overall I had an ok experience. Every problem that occurred was sorted out by Chemist Direct and they corrected there own mistake. I love the items and I love that I saved over £25! Amazing value!

Have you purchased from Chemist Direct?
