While Chemist Direct isn’t a particularly new site is certainly is new to me. I was offered a £50 voucher to use on the site, in order to have a good play, experience the order and delivery service and so that I could effectively report back what I really thought of the site. Despite being given the voucher to use Chemist Direct have had no say in my review and so this review is based purely on my own findings.
What is Chemist Direct?
Chemist Direct is as the name suggests an online chemist shop which provides products for your health needs (including prescriptions), toiletries and more. There are plenty of these online chemist shops around these days however what I find different about Chemist Direct is the moneysaving angle.
The site has a dedicated page for way to save you time and money. Perhaps my favourite part of the site, other than the well stocked clearance areas are the bulk buys. With four of us in the house we go through things like shampoo, conditioner, shower gel etc a lot quicker than I would like! I was able to purchase bulk packs of some of my favourite brands at a discount and of course am also now enjoying not having to constantly keep an eye on whether we need to add more to the weekly shop.
How Far Does £50 Go?
Further than I expected. Thanks to clearance items, bulk buys and having a wide range of items, both top brands and otherwise to choose from I was able to stock up on shampoo, conditioner, shaving items for Roy, baby wipes, toothbrushes and toothpaste, mouthwash, two jars of my Ponds Cold Cream cleanser, three Pantene hair mousses (I can’t leave the house without looking like a microphone without these!) and more.
My delivery was with me within a couple of days and I was kept informed via email of when it was dispatched etc. I was pleased to see that while the items were properly boxed etc that there wasn’t any wasted packaging. This is a pet hate of mine!
Would I Use Chemist Direct Again
Yes I would. I’ve bookmarked it and have a few bits in the basket as I’m building up a monthly order. Again the bulk buys really have been a bonus, from a convenience and a budget point of view and with these and the clearance items being refreshed regularly updated it’s good to see new items popping up to help you save.
I do get emails from Chemist Direct (as I signed up) with offer and what not however can’t say that there’s an excessive amount which is always a bonus.
I can’t fault the service, in fact I have already recommended it to friends and family which I wouldn’t do if I wasn’t 100% happy. If you want to know anything else about my experience drop me a line in the comment box or perhaps ask Chemist Direct via Twitter who are more than happy to help.
