Superdrug

AdvantagesCheaper than Boots, variety of products

DisadvantagesRude staff, long queues

"Superdrug sell cosmetics, hair/skincare products, deodorants, magazines and food, although the choice for the last two won't suit everyone, unless you're addicted to Heat, OK, Vanilla Coke and Walkers crisps! Some stores also do photo-processing, but I have never used this service, so I can't comment on them! I have noticed a 2-for-1 offer on Kodak film though. PRODUCTS: When it comes to make-up, they stock the usual brands, like Maybelline, ..." Read review

a caterer to all budgets!

Advantagesrange of products and services, offers, vouchers, cosmetics counters always stocked well

Disadvantagesnot always too clean in store, some ruder assistants

"Superdrug is a drugstore catering to all your personal hygiene and cosmetics needs, and includes their own pharmacy and perfume counters. Its logo is bright pink in scrawly handwriting and a star at the end-I think this is to do with the younger customer in mind! Its stores can be seen in cities throughout the UK. It is quite a popular shop and I think the reason is their constant offers such as 30% off or 3 for 2, etc. They recently had a 10% off ..." Read review

What's super about it?

AdvantagesAverage prices.

DisadvantagesEverything else!

"...I personally don't really find Superdrug as good as Boots to shop in - however, I must apologise now if I upset you in any way if you like this shop as this is my own opinion! In my own opinion, I feel that Superdrug and Boots compared together can be comparable to Morrisons and Aldi (with Superdrug being similar to Aldi!). It appears to me that my local Superdrug stores are trying to remain a functional shopping experience whilst trying to look ..." Read review

Anything you could ever need for your bathroom or make-up bag.

AdvantagesGreat choice, great prices, friendly & helpful staff.

DisadvantagesNone.

"...my experiences of shopping at Superdrug in Harlow, Essex. Superdrug specialises in selling toiletries & medicines and our own is located in the Harvey Centre which is just two minutes away from our local Boots store and I seem to spend a lot of time between the two stores comparing offers and trying to help my sister find the cheapest baby toiletries. The store is very large and sells make-up, haircare products, skincare products, medicines ..." Read review

Cheap Chic

AdvantagesQuick to pick up on new trends and cheap enough to experiment, Quality products

DisadvantagesQueues occasionally during busy periods

"...with Max Factor, Maybelline etc.), Superdrug have bitten the bullet and gone for high fashion and, often, high-tech formulas. They pick up trends very quickly and offer a wide range of products at prices that teens and students can also afford. I'm not sure how they manage it for the price - it just shows how much profit the other brands are making. They offer lots of different ranges of beauty products - Evening Primrose, Vitamin E, Aloe Vera, ..." Read review

Superdrug

AdvantagesShop aisles are well presented

Disadvantagesnone

"==Introduction== I have been shopping at Superdrug for many many years, possibly more than 10 years. In this review, I will report about the layout of Superdrug in Russell Square (London) and the customer service of Superdrug. The Russell Square (London) branch of Superdrug is ideally situated in Bloomsbury and there is Holland and Barnet, Waitrose, Nando's, Office Shop, River Island situated nearby. It is also near Great Ormond Street Hospital. ..." Read review

Super Shop - Superdrug!

AdvantagesGood buys, student discount, loyalty card, clean and well stocked, large choice.

DisadvantagesNothing I can think of.

"My local Superdrug has been around as long as I can remember. It has been one of those shops which has grown with me as I've progressed in life. As a teenager I remember browsing the various make-ups, trying out the testers and longing for a vast array of a huge make up selection. Then when I started getting silly spots I would look at the various spot treatments and preventions. Fast forward a little and I was going on nights out, earning my own ..." Read review

Super Cheap

AdvantagesCheap Prices

Disadvantagesstaff can be unsure about things

"Superdrug is a well known store throughout Britain. People say it is a cheaper version of the very popular and quite expensive Boots. Superdrug sell the same same sort of products as Boots and I feel that those two shops are competing against each other. Superdrug has one advantage to Boots because the prices in Superdrug are a bit cheaper. They seem to knock most prices down and it is very rarely that you will find something more expensive than ..."

A kite and a Pregnancy test kit

AdvantagesLow cost branded products

DisadvantagesStores can be small and staff unknowledgable

"...feel compelled to write about Superdrug as it seems that I am going through their doors in favour of Boots more and more these days as the product ranges are so competitively priced and the weekly bargains just seem to get better and better. Today’s bargain was two 475ml tubs of Vitamin E cream, special offer two for £3, superb bargain! The cream, which I shall review later, is marvellous and well worth the money. I ventured in there last week ..." Read review

so dirty you have to wipe your feet on the way out

Advantagesreasonable prices

Disadvantagesquite dirty

"...want to be nasty about superdrug as they do sell a lot of items much, much cheaper than say Boots, but the store near me really is appalling, so i am going to. The layout - When have you ever been in a Superdrug store and been able to find the product you want easily within a minute or two?. Probably never. The layout is soooo dosey. You have bubble baths with headache tablets, shampoo with condoms, hair-dyes next to the sandwich cabinet, i mean ..." Read review

Cheap and cheerful

AdvantagesWide range and good prices

DisadvantagesSome stores look a little out of date

"...They also have their own Superdrug brand which generally offer large bottles/packages of products at prices that are unbelievably cheap and on the whole the products are of good quality. I've tried many of Superdrug's own shampoos and conditioners for example - often only 99p for a large bottle - and they certainly do the job as well as any branded or designer product. They have a wide range of cosmetics, toiletries and medicines - most offering ..." Read review

Superdrug Stores

AdvantagesIts my place of work

DisadvantagesI have to work there all the time!!!

"...the quality of service in Superdrug is excellent. (Probably because me and all my friends work there!) I work in the Aberdeen branch in the Trinity Centre and I absolutely love the freindsly atmosphere you get there. Everyone is confident enough to talk to the customers and there is never a dull face in the place. We are a store that is never understaffed and the managers act like they are on an equal level with the sales advisors. Everyone therefore ..." Read review

In this case small is best

Advantagescheaper than Boots, lots of choice

Disadvantagesnone that I know of

"Husband's auntie from the States came to stay last week and I noticed that the contents of her travel bag with her toiletries rather put mine to shame. I decided that it was time to give mine an overhaul. My old bag contained a manky toothbrush, toothpaste and cotton wool. I tended to put all other stuff in my suitcase. Well, not anymore. I took a trip into town and found so many nice little sized products that fit nicely into a travel bag. I went ..." Read review

Superdrugs super

AdvantagesCheap branded products

Disadvantages1980's decor

"Superdrug is basically a bit like boots. Superdrug however seem to seel their products at lower prices. There are a lot of their own brand products that you will find scattered around the stores and a lot of 2for 1 or 3 for 2 offers available. The store is generally a very good store, with lots of items in stock at low prices. However, the only problem I have found is the tills. There are not very many in a lot of the stores I have been into. ..." Read review
