Pharmacy Geoff

I need to get some more RetinA, but all the listings on eBay have disappeared (again). I don't have a prescription obviously.

Have read about Pharmacy Geoff - can anyone vouch for them please? Worried about putting credit card details in and getting scammed.

I do worry about the authenticness of product - certainly stuff I have used in the past (from Thailand) was the real stuff.

If anyone can help, or point me in the direction of somewhere else to buy it, that would be much appreciated. TIA

Thanks - they are sister companies.

Is this fishy that to pay, credit card details and name/address required as normal but they also ask for D.O.B?

Gah. If only I knew someone inSpain who could post me some!

I get my retin a from pharmacy geoff. I've never had a problem.

Agreed the dob thing concerned me but I put a fake one in and it's never rejected my purchases. I assumed it was to cover their arses against people under 18 ordering.

Thanks Mint - it never occurred time to use a fake one!

Do you use retinA too? So, it's genuine? Thanks

In Thailand at the moment. BAck end of August. Can get some! I buy it in Boots when I come on business.

Mr Penny - thank you for the offer. How much is a tube please? Tretinoin 0.05% is what I am looking for.

Went to get some from that online place and the cc options are only VISA, no MasterCard, so I can't buy......

No prob but not back until late August! Hubby is pharmacist and he says it is OK. cant remember how much as buy it with other stuff but can let you know if you PM? Is this it??

wickedfairy Mon 03-Jul-17 07:01:38

Thank you - yes, that's exactly the stuff!
Can't figure out how to pm you on my phone - once kids at school, I will log on and pm you via pc.

Thanks again

I get retina from pharmacy Geoff, have done for a couple of years, never any problems.

I use Pharmacy Geoff too. Never had any problems.

wickedfairy Mon 03-Jul-17 15:13:25

Thanks - good to know there have been no problems. I assume you both have Visa cards and not MasterCard?

hello all and mrpenny.
apologies if i have come late to the thread, however aftr much research i have decided to try this product in 0.025% as a newbie im assuming its the best to start of with.

after placing an order with geoffs pharamacy i rec several email confirmations which i thought was odd, then in the past hour i hav rec a email stating my order was unable to be accepted due to technical reasons therefore b wire transfer is required! feeeeling a little dubious now.

would it be possible to purchase this cream from yourself mrpenny? if not any other places u would recommend?

Do you get charged customs ordering through Pharmacy Geoff?

Hi all just to let you know I ordered from Pharmacy Geoff, United pharmacy and sunshine Pharma and they are all the same company and they all asked for my credit card details only to then immediately send an email saying credit card system is down please make wire transfer to Bulgaria or pay via bit coin! So they are definitely purposely taking people’s CC details knowing they will then ask for a bank transfer and now they have your card details at their disposal. So be careful .
