The only reason I am writing this review about Wright's Coal Tar Soap is due to the fact that my daft husband has gone and bought a pack of four, telling me it was a great soap and that he used to use it al the time when he was small. I really detest this soap with a passion. It is actually meant to be suitable for everyday use and for all the family and for all skin types. It is also mildly antiseptic but I hate the smell with a passion and so much so, that I simply refuse to use it in my home. It is, I suppose a traditional family soap which has been around for generations, but it reminds me of the smell of TCP and hospitals and also of my grandmother as she used to have this sap n the bathroom when i was very small. The smell is strong and it lingers on your skin for ages after you have used it and it really makes me feel quite sick. I have refused to let my husband even open a pack, let alone use any in my bathroom or shower room. I have packed it up and put it out for the charity collection on Bank Holiday weekend. I would never recommend this as the smell is so awful and when I used to use it I also found it really quite harsh and drying on my skin. This is most certainly not a soap which i would ever choose to buy for myself and I would give it a very wide berth. Not recommended.
