This is our favourite soap It had been my soap of choice since I was a boy. 50 odd years I have been using Pears Soap. It smells really nice. Another thing in the long list of stuff I found out about as a child Colgate tooth paste is another. Kit kits, Mars Bars, Scotch Pies All still favourites after almost 6 decades Do you have a favorite soap? How about things you first discovered as a child?

That is my favorite soap as well, though I have to order it here online. Rare you would find it in a store here. Maybe Walgreens has it sometimes or the Dollar Tree at times. I started using Pears when I was a teen years ago in England. Mars Bars..my favorite..but not the kind you get here, only the ones over there, not the same here, they are total rubbish. Well as a child here..I remember the detangler for our hair we used to get...it was nice, cant get it anymore. It was made by Johnson and Johnsons.

What is an American Mars Bar? Pears is a classic little piece of luxury.

I use Colgate toothpaste. Do not use bar soap. Prefer liquid soap. Actually use Softsoap soothing aloe vera soap. Not sure if that's the exact name.

@JimBo452020 I use the advanced whitening one. Can’t say it whitens my teeth that much but perhaps that’s because I only brush once a day.

I have very few limits on soap and I love soap so much I buy any and all kinds. I don't buy black soap anymore due to it ruining my bath clothes.

I remember loving this soap as a child. I still like it but I think the one I buy is cheaper. But maybe it's time to lash out. And we still buy Colgate toothpaste.

I used pink dove soap for many years. I also used Lowila, for my sensitive facial skin. I've wondered about Pears soap, we should try it some time soon. I swear by Crest toothpaste. My favorite candy bar was the Heath Bar. Now, I try not to eat very much candy, I'm diabetic. I use to enjoy Hostess fruit pies.

I have seen pear soap in the store, not sure I ever tried it. I always liked mallow cups as a kid, and still do, but they are kind of hard to find. A store here sells them but I am not paying 1.29 for something that used to cost a nickel. I don't think so!

I don't have a favorite soap. I have used many over the years. One scent I love though is Dial Marula Oil in the body wash. They have it in a soap bar form, but I can't find it anywhere. I still love Kit Kats. I used to use Crest toothpaste for most of my life then I switched to Colgate about two years ago.

Oh I use a L'Oréal Body Wash and Pears Soap. I use the Pears Soap mostly because the smell is one which my wife's really really likes. I first noticed how turned on she got when I used Pears Soap 24 years ago when we first met. When I didn't use it She still got turned on but not to the same level lol. So it is hard Not to use it

A lot of the things that I use now either didn't exist when I was a kid, or they were not accessible to me then for one reason or another.

I’ve never heard of that soap here in the US but it reminds me of a bar form of original Dial soap. It’s very interesting they have been making the same soap for that long. I don’t usually care for bar soaps unless they are the handmade frou-frou ones with natural ingredients, like herbs, goats milk, coconut, flower petals, honey, etc. I consider them a small way of treating myself.
