Customer Reviews

Very impressed with the service I received.Rapid delivery and all fragile items arrived intact. Lovely packaging. Scented paper and little samples were a really lovely touch.


Couldn't recommend this pharmacy more. Emie is so helpful and friendly. She went above and beyond for me when I had awful break outs on my skin. I would highly recommend talking to her if you suffer with acne or any skin issues.
