Pros:Lathers well, doesn't leave film on skin, lasts and doesn't break apart
Cons:Smells kind of plain
The Bottom Line: I was really impressed with this soap and highly recommend it. It's a great deal and it gets your skin clean without drying it.
I've been a loyal Dove user for years, but every once in awhile I'll test out another bar soap if I get a good deal or if it's appealing for some other reason. Recently, Walgreens had some sort of store coupon where Jergens soap was around $2 for 8 bars.

Until this time, I didn't even know Jergens made bar soap, but I have always had good results from their lotions and self-tanners. I was afraid I wouldn't like it and and would wind up with seven leftover bars of soap I hated, but I decided to give it a shot.
I have been really surprised at just how good this soap is. It has a great lather, doesn't feel slimy or leave a film on my skin like some cheaper soaps, and seems to get my skin really clean. Most soaps besides Dove leave me feeling less than 100% clean, but this one certainly doesn't. And while it's not that moisturizing, it doesn't dry my skin out.
The soap bars are about your average size and are rectangular — not too big, not too small. They're white, and they have only a faint smell. Honestly, the only way I know to describe the scent is "soapy." It's not really floral or fruity or anything, it just smells like soap. So if you're a fan of fancy-smelling soaps, this probably isn't your thing.
Jergens soap lasts a little longer than your average soap. I love that it doesn't crumble or break apart as you get to the end of it; it usually stays in one piece until the bitter end, so you don't waste part of it when it escapes down the drain.
Overall, I've been incredibly pleased and surprised by this soap, and I will definitely be buying it again. I don't know if I like it quite as good as some of Dove's soaps, but for that cheap a price, I'll keep buying it.
Price and availability: This soap is really affordable, usually around $2-3 for an 8-bar pack. It doesn't seem to be available in all drugstores and mass merchandise stores, but I know you can usually find it at Walgreens.
