I have read some differing opinions on blogs about the online company Chemist Direct. So when they asked if I would be interested in £50 credit for their site I thought it was the perfect chance for me to see for myself if they were worth purchasing from.
As we are off on our holidays in a few weeks time I thought it was the perfect opportunity to get some summer essentials. I have heard good things about the P20 range so thought I would give this a try. I also got some travel sized products so that my suitcase isn't weighted down and some razor blades for my husband - who says I don't know how to spoil him!
The site was easy to use with drop down menus. The prices? Well to be brutally honest they were disappointing. I would usually buy toiletries along with my food shop at Tesco. Having had a quick look at Tesco online groceries, most of the products could be purchased from there, and were often cheaper. Whilst the sun creams had a better individual price on Chemist Direct, the offers on Tesco would have bought them down to a lower cost. I did like that I could buy travel sized products from Chemist Direct, which would not have been available using my normal shop.
So in short, the ordering process with Chemist Direct was simple. There is free delivery for orders over £40. All the products I ordered were in stock and delivery was by courier in a couple of days. The only downside is that I didn't feel that the prices for the items I ordered was particularly competitive and this would stop me from ordering in the future. It may well be that they have some good deals on certain items and worth a look if you are planning a big toiletry shop.
