I grew up using Pears Transparent Soap, sadly this was reformulated. However, I had bought the hype and started to use SLS facial washes as a young adult. In the early part of this millennium, I started using Luxury soaps with shea butter and almond oil. I still use them to this day. Some time ago I read an article on the Sharpologist recommending Glycerine soap as a part of the shave routine. I purchased a Glycerine soap from Waitrose, probably made by Droyts. This gives an excellent face feel afterwards when used alone and not a part of shaving. I have also used it today as a part of my shaving routine. I am definitely going to add glycerine soap to my facial regimen and an order from Droyts is on the agenda.
