A while ago while shopping for soap I came across a 4 pack of Fairy soap for 99p in one of our local shops. I haven't used Fairy soap since I was a kid but at that price decided to give it a try.
The bars are 100g each and not especially wide but quite deep and curved into a slight C shape which makes them very easy to hold onto and the convex curve fits very well into the hand while the concave side slides over arms and legs very well. They are in fact perfectly shaped, particularly if you don't have very large hands. They are light green in colour and have the word Fairy stamped on top.
The scent took me right back to my childhood and when I read the packet it did indeed boast they still use the original fragrance, although difficult to convey in words this fragrance is fresh but mild.
I'm mostly a soap and water kind of girl, sometimes I have facial cleansing foams etc but usually it's just soap and water so I used this all over, including my face.
What I found was the soap is easy to lather, very mild and didn't leave my skin tight although it was squeaky clean. That's a very good result for me as some soaps are a bit harsh on the face, but not this one.
The bar has lasted my partner and I a couple of weeks so far and is holding its shape well without lots of soft, melted goo finding its way onto the sink.
A very good result, smells nice, fits the hands well, lasts well, costs very little and does the job without being harsh. Thoroughly recommended.
Fairy Hand Soap is one of the best soaps around and always has been. I first started using it when I had my first baby - it was recommended by the midwife in my maternity unit and was included in a free mother's starter pack that was handed to each new mum as she left the unit.
As it says on the wrapper, Fairy Hand Soap is pure and gentle and kind enough for the youngest newest skin. Fairy have not altered the original fragrance either, so it still reminds me of when my babies were small.
Fairy Hand Soap is pale green and comes in a light green wrapper which still carries the familiar baby logo that first introduced it to the nation in 1966. I usually buy the soap in multi-packs from supermarkets and pharmacies such as Superdrug and Boots. My last purchase was for four 100gm bars of Fairy Original which cost £1.99, so that works out at 50p per bar. It is dearer than many own-brand soaps but is so much kinder to the skin so I think it is well worth the extra cost. It can also be purchased individually but the bars cost slightly more this way. I would also recommend Fairy Extra Care soap which is white and also comes in multi-packs. The multi-packs for both kinds of soap comprise 4 bars which will be either 125gm bars or 4 100gm. The 100gm bar are easier to use if you have small hands.
I love Fairy for all the reasons I have given plus it is not messy to use like some soaps which leave a lot of soapy residue in sinks and baths.
There are plenty of soaps on the market to choose from, and i must admit i do usually buy liquid hand soap, but my 4 year old loves to play with soap in the sink, so i decided to try the Fairy hand soap.
Firstly we could not stop smelling it! it has a beautiful smell to it, and it leaves your hands feeling really soft and clean and of course smelling wonderfull.
I do usually opt for cheap bars of soap as we go through them quickly,but will definately be purchasing Fairy again!!
