header = {'User-Agent': 'Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; WOW64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/83.0.4103.61 Safari/537.36'}
#create a url list to scrape data from all pages
url_list = []
for i in range(1,26):
  url_list.append('https://www.walmart.com/browse/personal-care/hand-soap/1005862_1001719?page=' + str(i))

Output:

#Create empty list to store the data
item_names = []
price_list = []
item_ratings = []
item_reviews = []
for url in url_list:
  result = requests.get(url)
  bsobj = soup(result.content,'lxml')
  
  product_name = bsobj.findAll('div',{'class':'search-result-product-title gridview'})
  product_rating = bsobj.findAll('span',{'class':'seo-avg-rating'})
  product_reviews = bsobj.findAll('span',{'class':'stars-reviews-count'})
  product_price = bsobj.findAll('span',{'class':'price display-inline-block arrange-fit price price-main'})
  for names,rating,reviews,price in zip(product_name,product_rating,product_reviews,product_price):
    item_names.append(names.a.span.text.strip())
    item_ratings.append(rating.text)
    item_reviews.append(reviews.text.replace('ratings',''))
    price_list.append(price.findAll('span',{'class':'visuallyhidden'})[0].text)

# creating a dataframe 
import pandas as pd
df = pd.DataFrame({'Product_Name':item_names, 'Price':price_list, 'Rating':item_ratings,'No_Of_Reviews':item_reviews}, columns=['Product_Name', 'Price', 'Rating', 'No_Of_Reviews'])
