    Yardley of London products have seemingly suffered from the perception that they are not new or trendy. They were your grandma's bath and body products, after all. But here's the secret: Grandma knew best.Sadly, these bar soaps, among other offerings by Yardley of London, are increasingly difficult to find. Yardley of London soaps come in all varieties, with Lavender being only one of a very popular line that includes, if you can find it, a super moisturizing oatmeal/almond formula. Unfortunately, like the Yardley of London Oatmeal & Almond body lotion that Drugstore.com once carried, this imported brand is an endangered product line. The solution? Speak a good word about these fantastic products to your friends, coworkers and family so that demand in the US will surge for these competitively priced products. At a time when the economy is tanking and bath and body stores offering steep prices for increasingly limited and frequently discontinued products, Yardley of London is the real deal. So for those of you "in the know" who want to see this brand continue to thrive in the US market, why not put together a Yardley of London gift basket? The company needs to see its sales pick up, but because it doesn't advertise the public is missing out. That's where word-of-mouth comes in to play. Your word. To your friends. To your coworkers. To your family. And tell 'em you found it on Drugstore.com! Now I should warn readers that there is a smaller, cheaper version of Yardley of London soaps prevalent at [...]. Those bar soaps, which come clad in a wrapper instead of a artfully designed box, are a poor representation of the brand's overall quality. Thankfully, what Drugstore.com is selling isn't that. This is a full bath-size triple-milled soap that will lather beautifully and smell like authentic lavender. Equally important, these bar soaps use genuine bar soap ingredients. Why is this important? Because the problem with other brands is that they are increasingly infused with water and dissolve much more quickly. With competing bath soap brands, you literally don't get as much for your money. By contrast, the difference with Yardley of London soap is a difference you can feel. The bar is denser and firmer to the touch because it is packed solid. If you compare it to competing brands more commonly seen in stores today, you will also notice that Yardley of London's full-size bar soap is much less sticky. The other brands are sticky because they are adding ingredients billed as moisturizers, but in quantities not agreeable to soap formulations. The result is that you spend just as much time scrubbing the gummy residue buildup off the bath bar tray or your shower and bath walls. For the same reason, those newer formulations dissolve faster too. This Yardley of London soap also stands apart because it is just as suitable as a hand soap as it is for a bath soap. Try washing your hands with other bath soap brands and watch how fast your jewelry becomes clouded with soap residue. The same buildup is being deposited on your skin in the shower. No matter what the costly television advertisements tell you about those brands, that's simply not clean! Yardley of London triple milled soap is done the right way. The company, which was founded originally to serve the needs of the monarchy in England, haven't messed with a time-tested formulation and it shows. While the other brands are infused with messy non-soap ingredients and unnatural scents and chemical moisturizers, Yardley of London offers a real value for the money. Buy this soap up in bulk folks, lest Drugstore.com drop this fine product. Those of us who love Yardley of London soap and the brand in general do not need to see such a historical brand of high quality and reasonable pricing disappear from the US market for lack of awareness on the part of generations of new shoppers who are under the false impression they must frequent pricey mall boutiques to find bath and body products that feel, smell and work exceptionally well. It is going to take word-of-mouth advertising and a vote with the pocketbook here on Drugstore.com to ensure that Yardley of London remains on the market for years to come.

    NOT the Same

    This is not the same Yardley OLD English Lavender. It doesn't smell like real lavender anymore. It smells very artificial. It doesn't even feel the same anymore.

        I like the consistency and the smell. It's a really nice product. And it also works well dry and in your drawers to lightly scent clothing.

                People are really missing out on this soap. I love essential oils, especially lavender. It doesn't dry your skin and leaves you feeling so clean. And lather, lather, lather everywhere. The freshest clean you will experience. Never a fake smell or feeling of clean.

                  I have switched back to bar soap to use at my bathroom sinks. Yardley English Lavendar smells wonderful, lathers easily, and moisturizes nicely. I also use this in the shower. It's a great soap!
