Shopping for summer with Chemist Direct - Review!!

In case you don't know what Chemist Direct is....It is the UK's number 1 online retailer of pharmacy medications, specialist skincare products, everyday essential toiletries, vitamins, supplements and they even stock a dedicated range of products to keep your pets happy and healthy. By shopping with them you can browse a larger range than your average High Street pharmacy whilst still being able to fulfil prescriptions via their team of GPhC registered pharmacists and all from the convenience of your own home.

Earlier on in the year I tried out Chemist Direct for the first time....They recently got back in touch and asked if I would like to do some shopping for summer....Of course!!

I found some fantastic offers in the summer sale and I managed to snag myself quite a few.....

Mainly for myself I bought....

I have never been able to get away with using fake tan creams but the spray on one is the way forward for me....I have lovely tanned looking legs....hehehe

For the kids I bought....

Spray on Suncream which I have used on the kids and it is fantastic....Much easier than cream you have to rub in....I was sure to stock up on plasters too....The kids have the 6 weeks playing outside during the summer holidays and we always go through plenty and Becky wanted to remove the hair from her legs....I don't want her shaving them so Veet it is.

Just for Becky I bought....

Teeth things....We have finally got the date that she is getting her braces and I know she will be brushing her teeth more than usual so it's nice to have a head start on the supplies we need.....I also saw some deodorant especially for teens which I haven't seen before which seems like a great idea.

Piksters were voted Number 1 "most used/recommended" interdental brush. Just like a normal toothbrush, you can wash the bristles out under running water and re-use your brush. It will last up to 2 weeks per brush, depending on how hard you use it and how much you bend the wire. Patients often comment on how much more durable they are than other they have tried.

Keep It Kind Missy Girls Teen Roll-On Deodorant - A deodorant designed for teenage girls with natural ingredients and long lasting protection.

I ordered on the Wednesday and my box of goodies arrived on the Saturday.....There were no issues with my order and everything was there and packaged well....

I think there are some great bargains to be had but also some things seem overpriced.....For example the Piksters Interdental Brushes are £2.39 at Chemist Direct but I saw them in Poundland earlier in the week obviously for £1. 

I did have another fantastic experience using Chemist Direct and would recommend the site....
Family Fever
I was given a voucher to purchase these products....This did not influence my opinion. This is my honest review.


  1. A great haul! I'm fascinated by what everyone's getting in their Chemist Direct orders, it gives a great insight to their world, so many different ideas and choices. Could be an intriguing psychological experiment, we could get the all nation involved... Hope the braces fitting goes well x

    1. Thank you! I love seeing what everyone choose too...It is interesting x

  2. A nice and easy to use site then, with plenty to choose from x

  3. What a great selection Kim, I got Grotbags some of the deodorant too and it smells quite nice, not overpowering. I love some of the bargains they have. I hope your daughter copes well with the braces x

    1. The deodorant is great isn't it....Perfect for young girls!
      Thank you!

  4. They do seem to offer some fantastic deals. I found it a little bit hit and miss with the delivery, unfortunately. Otherwise, would be flawless.

    1. Such a shame the delivery wasn't too good.....

  5. You got some fab bargains there! I love getting new toiletries, so would be in my element receiving all this!

    1. I love getting things like this too....hehehe

  6. What a great, seems like there is lots of choice which is good.

  7. That's quite a haul you've got there. Summer is sorted, now all we need is some sun. I'm really pleased to hear they got your order to you quickly. My experience wasn't so great unfortunately

  8. Ohh I've got my review to do! You got loads, I love the Banana Boat aloe vera spray, it is so good!! Feels lovely and cool after sun.


    1. I know...I did so well. Everything was at great prices though.
      Thank you!

  9. What a haul! There seems to be plenty of choice there

  10. I didn't really know this existed but really good to see it has some bargains. I could do my whole changing bag shop from here!

    1. Ohh it would be fab for things for a changing bag....

  11. It's fascinating to see your haul. Now I want to go back and get some of your stuff. That Keep it Kind range for teens is very good but I didn't spot it on the site when I did my order - must go back and have another look.

  12. What a detailed review! Need to be shopping for my son's Hayfever and other bits and bobs inspired by your haul of course ;)
