┬áby InLoveWithHomeDecor Buy the lotion and re-use bottle
So I don't actually own the Pure and Good Hand Soap instead I bought the Pure and Good lotion (in the same bottle). I did this because I was able to get the lotion on sale for ten dollars and I was able to reuse the bottle for soap. I'd read reviews here that the soap bottle is not refillable but you should know the lotion bottle is! Beautiful bottle.

┬áby aspensnows Reusable, but Leaking
I just moved into my first solo apartment and wanted a little something extra nice and different in the kitchen. Have always loved going to a friends or family and finding an unusual scent not commonly found at the grocery store or Target. So I was excited to receive this! I ordered the Lemon Tarragon, and the scent is fantastic--zesty, fresh and earthy, and the feel of the soap is smooth without being tacky and clinging to the skin. As other reviewers have commented, the bottle is lovely with a vintage touch; it looks fab on my kitchen countertop. HOWEVER, when returning to the kitchen the next day, I found a puddle of soap had oozed down from the pump top to rest on the cylinder base. It has been doing this ever since. So I clean it off, and it oozes more. What a waste. Aside from being wasteful, it turns into this oxidized-like turquoise color. Dirty-looking/Not attractive. So disappointed. I am hoping to find a replacement in store and get a fair exchange.
Overall, I've not seen anyone else complain about this...so must be a fluke in the bottle I received. I do love this soap and the presentation. Just keep an eye on it and go for an immediate return if the same thing starts to happen. It won't get better, no matter how much you play with it to resolve the leak!
Also, to hopefully dispel some confusion--the bottle can be unscrewed and refilled. Just not with the same soap, as Anthro doesn't sell refill containers. You just end up having to buy these guys new over, and over...Hopefully that will change:)

I bought this primarily because I wanted a really nice looking and functional soap dispenser that I could reuse--I think I almost would've bought it empty or just poured out the soap if I didn't like it--but the scent is really nice, too. The lemon tarragon scent is very refreshing and not overpowering. The glass has a very nice weight to it and the pump has a slightly antiqued look. It looks and feels very vintage, like an old school glass Coca-Cola bottle. I got several houseguest compliments at Thanksgiving. I've had it only a month so I can't comment yet as to the longevity of the pump, but I hope it will last.
One caveat as to size -- this bottle is very large, both very tall and very wide! This particular size would work better next to a kitchen sink or on a very large vanity. I wound up buying the two-pack of two smaller bottles, one of soap and one of lotion, as that bottle fits much better on my small pedestal sink.
