This year, we are very fortunate to have 3 holidays planned. I firmly believe that Holidays are fantastic memory making opportunities for my children, and I will always work hard to ensure we have at least 1 holiday a year. 1 of our holidays this year we have already had, back in April when we went to Cornwall and I really wish I knew then what I know now.
What I know now is that there is a fantastic online company called Chemist Direct. It's a website where you can purchase all of your holiday essentials. From Suncream to antiseptic cream, they have it all!
I placed an order for all of our holiday essentials, for the fantastic price of £50.57p this is what arrived
It was all very well packaged and nothing was damaged or broken. What I really loved about ordering from Chemist Direct is that they do branded AND own branded things. So for me, things like paracetamol and ibroprofen (both adult and child versions) I am happy to buy non branded. The children's ibroprofen is just £1.05, which is a huge saving on what I would pay for the branded version. When it comes to vitamins I always purchase Bassetts soft and Chewy vitamins, as they are the only ones Millie will eat. They cost just £2.05 which is a great price.
Suncream is obviously a summer holiday essential and sadly, I only have to look at the sun and I turn the shade of a tomato. So it is always top of the list of essential purchases. Chemist Direct sell this Riemann once a day sun protection. Which claims to give 10 hours sun protection and is very water resistant. It cost £11.99 and whilst that is more than I would usually pay for sun protection, if it does what it claims to, it will be worth every penny.
I was very impressed with the selection of product available, some products are usually behind the chemist counter products so I had to answer a questionnaire to ensure that I needed those products. The website was easy to follow and even after I had ordered I was kept upto date with the order status via emails.
I think we are now set for our summer holiday to Dorset, some things may even last us for our Autumn holiday to Paris.
What do you think, would you order your holiday essentials online?
