Cor Blimey: Does this $125 Soap Work Wonders?

When I read about Cor, a silver-infused bar of soap, I was intrigued. Not only does a $125 bar of soap seem like the ultimate screw-you to poor people, it's also the most expensive bar of soap I've ever heard of. But Cor promises amazing results, with the bar lasting about six to nine months. That's $20 or less a month, which isn't too steep.

Cor uses nano-silver to fight bacteria, collagen to hydrate, chitosan to absorb oil, and a few other ingredients to make it different from Dove. These ingredients are said to work together to even out skin tone, minimize wrinkles, replenish collagen, and deliver UV protection — all in a single bar of soap. I tried a sample size of Cor ($12) to see if it could live up to its promises. To find out whether it did,


Before, during, and immediately after Fashion Week, I used Cor as my sole cleanser. It's a bit unusual in the sense that you have to lather it up, leave the lather on your face, and then rinse it. I definitely felt a tingle while the lather was on, and the soap didn't dry out my face. Buuuuut... I didn't see facial fireworks. I still fought pimples, I didn't get an amazing glow, and I didn't have a collagen-fueled epiphany. (FYI: Topical collagen can't replace the collagen your body has lost.) So, is this soap worth $125? I think you know.

*snorts*- I wouldn't pay that much for a GOLD plated soap! I mean, where do you draw the line? With a price like that for a gimmicky have got to be joking!

whatever, i know if i had the money to burn and just felt like buying it, then i would. But i don't think its so damn miraculous and la mer-like that it constitutes that price tag

I know this sounds foolish, but I would actually buy something like that. I enjoy spoiling myself a little bit. This bar of soap also lasts a little while to. I dont see why people are making such a big deal over its price tag, I mean, celabraties purchase extremely pricey dresses only to wear them once. Really, calm down.

Thanks, thoroughlymodern. One of my good buddies and I talk in bad Brit slang all of the time. It's all "'Ello" this and "guv" that.

Bella, I love your cockney in the title! Also, "the ultimate screw-you to poor people." So great.

That reminds me of Fight Club, when he sells his fat soap back to the rich people.

I think that's an obnoxious price for soap.

Erm... I think I'll buy cheaper stuff that actually works. Because $125 for a bar of soap is some ridiculous shiznit.

Nano Cyclic is better like the other commenter said. I paid around $70 for mine because my friend swore on it and they also gave me a bunch of samples for buying two. I actually sometimes skimp on the applying, and when I'm in a rush, I don't spend the advised 2 minutes waiting for my skin to soak up the particles. I think it showed some results but I might of just tried to convince myself that it worked for spending that much money. Skin is kind of a big issue with me and some people spend hundreds on makeup so I figured why not. So far, the bar has lasted around 6 months and I still have a good amount left.

woah... 125 is wayy too much to plunk down on one bar of soap, and i prefer the liquidy cleansers over bars of soap anyday.

Nano Cyclic is a LOT cheaper. I bought samples and it didn't work on my face, but some people on my skincare forum found if they washed under their arms with it....they didn't need deodorant after a while. Something about colloidial silver.

you can get plasters (band-aids) with silver in them as they help to regenerate the skin, so maybe there is some truth in this super-expensive soap. I think I'd be willing to give it a go.

In theory it should work but I don't think soap warrants a $125 price tag. It's not like a night cream you apply and let it soak into your skin.
