Pears Transparent Soap is especially made to take care of even the most delicate skin. Each bar is prepared by a unique process of molding and matured until it reaches pure transparency.

Pears is a 200 year old brand.

For some reason, all the stores seem to be selling this at only 39p, but it shows up at 40p online.

Yes.

Leave your skin very dry

I like it, and very cheeeeeap! Much better - ta

They changed the recipe. That's why it's cheap. And vile too.

How much is it normally? And yes I found my skin quite dry after use. Nice smell though

It's 35p each in Wilkinson in store. Found in the Leicester store today, big red price label on shelf edge.

Always found Pears in Wilkinsons (& Morrisons) to be the smaller, thin bar/box (<100g) version sold at a similar price to the usual (125g?) one sold most other places. Not as good as it used to be due to formula change but better for me than any other soap I've tried.

Hot, but never use "bars of soap" anymore, serious question really, but who does now? Would rather refill a dispenser, good price for those who do though!

The two are different products, AFAIK bar soap is saponified fat i.e. fat + strong alkali, e.g. palm oil + NaOH (lye)
So it is made how how soaps have been made since forever.

Gel soaps are based on sodium laurel sulphate, which is a more convoluted manufacturing process than normal soap and is a 'better' cleaner, but harsher. e.g. car cleaner, fairy liquid, hand soap, the different products use more/less of that ingredient to determine how 'harsh' it is, plus added scents etc.

If I'm wrong, feel free to correct.

I prefer bar soaps like Knights Castille, 4 or 5 bars for a quid.

This stuff is the world's oldest registered product, I read that when visiting Port Sunlight. Thanks OP

Ah, Pears! The racist soap!

Wasn't having a go, just seriously wondering, now more folk have showers, less seem to be using soap? thanks for info though!

Love this soap. I stocked up a few months ago when it was on offer in Superdrug. It certainly was not as cheap as 39p though! Have some heat!

I won't embed it, since it's kinda offensive. But Pears Soap created a series of adverts in the 19th century that said the soap could make black people white...
