I have used Pears' Bar Soap ever since my mother had used it. (Since I can remember!) There would always be a bar of Pear's Soap to hand, no matter where you were in the house!
My mother would never be without her Pears' Soap and would not use any other soap!
Pear's Soap has been used for years as I discovered. And I can see why. The soap retails around £1 or so and you get a lot of use from it. The soap does not foam up dramatically but it does clean your hands amazingly well! Squeaky clean hands is what you will get from this product that's for sure!! You can use the soap on your face and body, although I found it can be drying if used too much on the face. I must say too that this soap is FOREVER slipping from my hands ! It gets soooo slippery!!! It looks amber in colour and has a fresh soft Pear scent too. The soap has a translucent look to it also. It looks like a block of amber!

The main reason I personally LOVED this soap is that this is the ONLY soap I have found to get rid of fake tan from my hands!! For all those self tan lovers, you will NEVER have orange hands again!!! Liquid soaps do not get off fake tan off no matter how much you try ! There is always a slight tan left on your hands. This soap gets every inch of fake tan off your hands. It is great for cleaning your make up brushes too! Even rubbing the soap on a stained garment helps to get the stain out! I've found that this soap can be used for so many things because it WORKS.

Earlier this year though, my mother asked me to buy her a bar of the soap whilst I was out, and when I brought it back I heard my mother ranting on about the soap and how the packaging and formula didn't seem to be the same?

And it is true, the Soap has been re formulated with now triple the amount of ingredients then before. The smell is slightly different (more of an antiseptic smell), and the colour not as bright. There has been huge up roar about the huge change with the Soap. I've heard that it is now more 'economical' too. It does still clean you the same way though.

Have the manufacturer's done the right thing? Well I'm sure they knew that not everybody would be entirely happy with the new re formed soap. Who likes change?? But at the same time, there is still nothing quite like this soap on the market that I have seen or tried. If sales of the new soap have stayed the same or increased then I very much doubt that the manufacturers will bring back the old Pears' Soap.

I would still highly recommend this soap. It is hypo-allergenic too so everybody can use it. Even those with highly sensitive skin.
Try this soap if you haven't already. You'll be cleaner then clean!!
Summary: Although now slightly different, still a great buy.

It's a shame they messed with the original formula (not that I would be tempted away from Lush anyway!)
