I bought this product based on the reviews of the acne prone cleansing bar but could only find the original formula at target. It was so cheap like 3 bars for a few bucks. I must say it takes of makeup amazingly. As soon as the bar touched my face I saw makeup coming off. The smell is definitly disgusting- that's the only downside. But if you can work past the smell then it's a great product. I've only used this once but sl far I am impressed. Hopefully it doesn't break me out. Will repurchase buy probably in the acne form. Definitly worth a try for the price.

Yuk!!! This smells awful, like milk that's beginning to go off. It leaves a filmy residue that is incredibly difficult to wash off and it turns to mush really quickly. I was going to use it to handwash clothes with but decided to bin it instead. Back to Pears soap I go.

The positives of this product are that it's cheap and doesn't irritate sensitive skin.

It is, however, drying and doesn't smell great. I also found that I would get mild rashes at my hairline whereever I didn't rinse away all of the soap residue. I pass over all bar soaps now because of this - they tend to be more difficult to rinse away completely without using exorbitant amounts of water.

I use this soap as part of my daily cleansing routine ever since I started getting compliments of my skin when I first started using it.

I have extremely oily skin that tends to get tight and dry simultaneously; Sounds weird but it's possible. I have dry sking coated with oil.

This soap has been my aid in this problem for the most part and it works its magic best during the winter months when my skin is gettin it's most dry.

I canít stress enough that this simple glycerin formula has kept my skin smooth, cleansed and hydrated without over activating my oil glands.

I pick out the non-fragrance version; and it smells well.. like glycerine soaps.

I preffer this over anyother cleanser. works well for me.

My biggest peeve about this product would definitely have to be the smell. The only way to describe it is wet dog mixed with baby spit up, or maybe a vanilla latte gone sour. For me, this factor was big enough to knock off two lippes- I literally had to breathe through my mouth only when using this, the smell was so horrible to me. All that aside, this is a pretty good basic cleaner- I think just a solidified version or their liquid cleanser. The packaging doesn't really make sense to me either, just because it seems like a bar would be more prone to germs and bacteria than a liquid that's sealed in a bottle. It is cheaper than the liquid form, though, and might last longer, so if you're pinching pennies right now I might suggest this as a good alternative.

I have used the one for acne-prone skin, the original one and the one with fragrance. I really love all theses bars and the original one is my favorite! I used to spend $20-$30 on my cleansers, since I always believed that cleansers are the key products to keep my skin healthy. When I first used this cleansing bar, I found that I was totally an idiot! I couldn't believe that I had spent $26 on a wash powder while a $3 cleansing could give me the same result! I just got 3 for about $4.50 @ Target this afternoon and I was exited! Definitely keep using it!

I think this a great bar cleanser if you don't have very acne-prone skin. It does do a nice job of removing makeup and cleasing your face. However, if your skin is acne prone, as mine is, I would suggest the Neutrogena bar for acne prone skin. I would cease buying this product only if my skin miraculously becomes free of acne.

This product dries my skin, but it cleans well. I won't ever purchase cause it really dries my skin. But living in mile hi city, dry skin is what you get, so I dunno.

This soap is great for everyday maintenance on my oily skin. I was using it everyday for about a year until i started discovering the world of handmade complexion soaps and i couldn't help but dive in! I do keep a bar of this around at all times tho, just in case.

I am reviewing the "Original" formula of this product.

I bought this soap because lately I've been having a reaction to Dove soap (no idea why). And I heard that glycerin soap usually has less ingredients so it's less irritating. Apparently, that's not all together true...

Here's why I hate this soap:
- THE SMELL! I really cannot tolerate the smell of this. It smells rot...
- It leaves a (stinky) film on my skin
- It really dries out my skin

Thankfully, it melts really fast (which is usually a bad thing, but I want to use this up fast).

IMO, Pears is a much better glycerin soap than this product.
