LUSH: 13 Soap (Unlucky for Dirt) Handmade Soap

Lush 13 Soap (Unlucky for Dirt) is an interesting soap.  Here is the description from Lush:
Our beautiful rose and oregano soap gets its name from a 1931 Hollywood film about a soap company; the son advertised a soap that didn't exist and demand was so high, the dad had to make it. Sounds like typical LUSH, except for the advertising part. Sue and Dawn from the UK had been asked by nurses for an oregano soap because they'd heard that oregano kills bacteria. This lovely soap has been like gold dust; we adore its translucent loveliness, its herbal scent and its very effective cleansing properties.

Pros - Creates a light lather, very mild scent (not overpowering), chemical free.

Cons - Melts quickly, soap didn't seem to last through too many showers or baths, have to order online if there is not a store near you, expensive.

Overall, I recommend this soap for someone who is sensitive to chemicals or is interested in going green with their bathroom products.   I think many products at Lush can be hit or miss but for the most part, this soap is OK.  I only wish it didn't melt so quickly so that it would last longer than it did for me.
