They also cracked terribly, after only few uses.
I do prefer my soaps, but I just wanted to test them out as I haven't used shop bought soap in ages.

They are not handmade. I have tried them before and yeah totally agree they are terrible. I bought 4 bars this time last year and 3 are still sitting in my bathroom cabinet. The other has maybe 3/4 left of the bar as every time I use it even just for hand washing I'm reaching for the lotion soon after.
