Tuesday’s Honest Reviews – Yardley – Bar Soap

Brokedown Vanity - Review - Yardley - Bar Soap

For our Post today, it will be a review on the Yardley London Oatmeal & Almond Bar Soap.

I don’t use bar soap often, I know I’ve talked about it on here before, and how I haven’t used it on my whole body since I was a kid. I do use it on my hands in a bind. I do however constantly use it on my feet, they are less finicky than the rest of my body, and I find the bar really is easier to use for that area of my body. The only other bar that ever made it on the blog was in a review I did really early on this year; Review – Rock Spa – Bar Soap.

Cost – $1.25CAD to $3.79CAD

Size – 120g/4.25 oz

My Thoughts

With having eczema, as well as sensitive skin, tones of skin allergies and whatever else thrown in, products for my body must do certain things. I have found over the years, if I was going to use a bar soap anywhere, something with oatmeal was often a safe bet.

I tried this soap out once, and instantly fell in love. My feet are often in a horrid condition nowadays, and I always seem to have plasticine or some other random bits of something stuck to them. I probably wear socks about 40 times a year(or less if I can get away with it). I do often walk out on the property with no footwear either.

I use to take the utmost care of them, even with my bad foot habits, but it went out of the wayside when I could no longer reach my feet during my pregnancies. I just never got back into the habits I had before.

This soap has actual granules that help with the scrubbing process, which is perfect for my feet. It really does help keep them somewhat maintained now, and I grab these soaps whenever I find them, which doesn’t seem to be so easy anymore.

The soap leaves my feet smelling wonderful, and gets them rather soft. I don’t react to the product in any negative fashion, skin wise. It also helps keep them from being overly dry in the summer, winter and with all my swimming.


Yes,I try to grab multiples when I see them, where ever I find them. They use to be easier to find, but are getting a bit harder now.

This is a safe for my family product, and I am able to use it on all my kids.

As long as it is out there, this will be a staple in my household and I will always have some around.

I have picked up a few extra while out and about, and will be giving them away in my beauty giveaway, which will be happening in the coming months.

‘Til Tomorrow

    1. I use to get a handcrafted soap very similar to this one, and actually stumbled upon it when trying to find something a bit easier to access(as the shop for the handcrafted ones was hours away, and no online presence).

      I still get the other one when I am off traveling near the shop, but this soap is a bit more handy.

      I hope your experience with them goes well!

  1. This sounds really great!
    I’ve never seen this over here (which is odd since this is a British brand), but I will try to find it.

    I’ve never been a fan of soap until I discovered a sulphur soap a few months ago. It changed my life (I too have eczema, dry and sensitive skin, so I feel your pain).

    1. I saw that posts, and saved it, to remind me to look for something similar over here. I vaguely recall seeing something that might have been like that at this one store I sometimes go to.

      Bar soap is hardly ever on my radar, so I didn’t really think much of it at the time.

      Worth it to go check the ingredients though.
