Send personal check to All Day Chemist. Is it safe?

Hello again. Well, have given up on Medsmex. So you gals who use ADC, do you trust them with a personal check?

I am way to lazy to wait in line at the Post Office to get a money order, but will if I have to!

No I would not send a personal check. Send a money order. Most grocery stores offer them for sale, you can purchase them at the customer service desk just like you do at the post office.

I sent a personal check last year when I placed an order and never had any problems.

Wal-Mart also sells money orders.

I have sent a personal check two times in the past with no problems whatsoever. They even give you a five dollar discount for using a check, I think. I am getting ready to place another order soon and will send a check again.

I get my allergy medicine from them and also the Careprost, 4% Hydroquinone, and Tretinoin Gel (Retin-A).

You do have to sign when the items are delivered by the USPS.

I love this board. Well, I do know I need Retin A .050. I used Renova at Medsmex but can use retin a with moisturizer, also getting allergy meds while I'm at it. Might as well use that $25.00 shipping fee.

I may see what other meds are available on it I take and try to save $$.

I always use a personal check for ADC never had any problems.

Tell me, when using All Day Chemist, do you need to supply them with a prescription for the Retin A or any other meds you have ordered? Also, do they take Paypal or is it just check or M.O. and if so, has anybody used Paypal or credit card?

bettes1296071865.69146 PostsRegistered 11/6/2010

Patticakes, As I understand it you can use MO, credit card or personal check. That is what I have read on site.

You do not need a prescription for Retin A. At the bottom of the order, after you have created an account, they'll ask you to check some medical questions, and the name of your doctor. Don't check anything. Just go to the bottom and hit checkout.

I am going to put in my first order, and the gals on this board have helped me through it.

PAYPAL anyone? I didn't see where that can be used, THAT would be great!

Croemer (a regular on the Boards) always uses personal checks and has never had a problem. I use my Amex. ADC does not accept PayPal.

You really are not suppose to use most moisturizers with your Retin A. You can use a plain one with no additives....something like Cereva ( sp?)Crud....can't spell it. But there are 2 plain ones available almost everywhere....I just can't remember the name of the other one.

Then I don't blame you for moving on.

Alldaychemist is a very reputable company. I've been buying the majority of my meds and other products from them for 7 years.

You will have no issues what so ever with Alldaychemist.

It's too bad Medmex has allienated many of their customers. I emailed them 2 weeks ago to tell them how disappointed I was with the way they've been treating customers and they responded to my email very quickly.

Why can't they do that for their customers, I don't know.

I'm done with Medsmex too. I'm going to call Keith and John at Alldaychemist and ask them to find a source for Renova so we can get it from them in the future. They know me well enough and I feel they will make an effort to help us find a reliable source for Renova through them.

In the mean while, just take into account that their Retin-A comes in 20 gram tubes compared to the 40 grams Medsmex used to carry. The price is better per tube but the shipping is higher. It all evens out in the end.

You have nothing to worry about with Alldaychemist. I've been paying with my Visa for many years and have never had an issue.

I just got an order from ADC, this isn't the first order, and this may be a coincidence, but the day after I ordered this time, my spam folder is inundated with viagra ads.

redsnapper1296226485.53316 PostsRegistered 10/6/2004

I was "shopping around" at ADC contemplating an order. I've never ordered anything from them before...or from any other on-line pharmacy. I got as far as the checkout process and then I chickened-out. Now I have a gazillion ads for Viagra and other similar products in my email. In fact, I had 4 of them this morning which had to be deleted/blocked.

Needless to say, I am hesitant to place an order now...

You can buy Renova from pharmamundi and its an online pharmacy. Many of the makeupalley members use it without any problems ( I've never used them ). My suggestion is to talk or post any questions to them about pharmamundi. They do take online credit cards. Personally, I don't feel comfortable using personal checks and giving out that information. Money orders can be purchased at several places.

FYI, I couldn't use Retin-A today, because it is too harsh for normal and dry skin types. If your skin is on the oily side, you may use Retin-A and be fine, but becareful on the level when beginning. I started using Retin-A ( the prescription ) years ago from a dermatologist. Derms instruct on how to use these type products. In the past, I have failed to disclose same information.

Did Keli13 give all that information about caution, or is she too preoccupied playing derm/pharmacist/skincare extraordinaire?

Just another FYI...someone messed their face up using, Dr. Gross Alpha Beta peel pads. Another recommendation from a beauty board member. That's not even a prescibed product! Boy, I would be looking for someone that would mess my face up.

Good luck.

I wasn't asked that info and there are more than enough threads here stating how to use prescription retinoids. I don't need to add to them.

By the way I have 3 years of pharmacy school under my belt at UWM Madison WI. I just never finished or went back, for personal reasons. Not that it's any of your business.

I also have a brother and a sister who are pharmacists.

I can see why you messed you face up. You obviously don't know your own skin.

I personally don't think I've hurt anyone here giving my advice. Especially regarding buying from ADC. I'm not the only one here who's been buying from them for a while now.

If your skin is so sensitive maybe you should see a derm.

Hi Keli,

There was no need for that post to you. You have always been helpful to anyone here looking for advice on retin A and renova. I read your posts for a long time and because of you, I am using Renova., and I thank you for that.

You answered what bettes asked. You have helped many here, don't let a crab apple bother you!!

My sisters are going on a cruise to Mexico in Feb. I will be asking them to pick me up more renova!!

Good luck bettes!!

Uhhh...where did I write where I messed up my face? Would you care to read that again with less emotion? I wrote where "someone" had messed up their face with ill advice. That advice to them came from Lyn in MI. She recommended the Dr. Gross Alpha Peels to them. If possible, I will search for that thread. She ( Lyn ) is too self absorbed to even offer an apology or regrets to this persons anguish. By the way, my skin looks nice due to Renova, NIA24 and a few other products. I still caution anyone thinking about using advanced skincare.

Once again - think about the advice you are givingWink.

Here is my search and thread is titled...Dr Dennis Gross Peel and read poster, ditzier comment.

click on ditzier name and read the thread titled...LYN IN MI./Dr.Gross Pads.

Think about it the advice you are givingWink.

Lyn recommended peels to someone and it is HER fault that it didn't work for someone?

People are going to have different side affects to things and not everything is going to work for everyone, might even cause irritations. How the heck is that Lyn's fault? Why should she apologize to anyone? Did Lyn hold that "someone" down with a gun and force them to try this stuff?

I am a Renova fan. If I recommended it to someone and their skin got irritated, there is no way I would feel I owed anyone an apology.

Keli has always tried to answer questions about retin a and renova. The OP asked about checks. Should Keli have talked about side affects or answered the question? I think if she had talked about any side affects, you would be whining about that too.

Sounds like you are jealous that Keli is a kind and well respected poster who is always willing to share her knowledge with her fellow posters. .

Who are you, Keli's mother? That is mature of you to call someone a crab apple. Please don't throw up the jealousy card, you don't know what you're talking about.

You can buy pre-paid Visa cards at Walmart and other places, perfect for using at questionable sites.

Ordered 5 units of CareProst and rcvd yesterday (in nine days!).

Question; how do you all store the extras? Do you refrigerate or just store in closet/cabinet?

roscoemydog1296345157.95157 PostsRegistered 1/28/2011

sapphire, where do you buy renova or is it retin a?

smhr, where do you get the nia? will it help with acne blemishes?

to call a helpful poster a troll is *mean* *undignified* *jealousy*

Keli does not push her opinions on anyone. She responds to posters who ask questions. She has been nothing but kind and helpful to me and many other posters. I thank her for guiding me thru the Retin A process and ADC. Thank goodness for poster like her and many others here.

Yes I have used checks when purchasing from ADC for several years without a problem. Be sure and write your order number on the check then email ADC with your check and order number so it will start processing right away.

I'm done with Medsmex too. I'm going to call Keith and John at Alldaychemist and ask them to find a source for Renova so we can get it from them in the future. They know me well enough and I feel they will make an effort to help us find a reliable source for Renova through them.

Thank You! I hope they do. I've been mixing my retin a with Cerave cream this winter, but I'd love to be able to get renova from them.

And maybe a group discount on prozac, given some of these replies Wink
