Umbra 12 oz. Penguin Soap Pump is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 38.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor design The item looks pretty, however, it functions poorly. The soap leaks when attempting to replace it. The refill compartment is sealed shut and I cannot replace the soap. I would like a refund.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Too Expensive, bad quality I purchased the silver one and I love the design. But like some of the other reviewers, mine leaks on the inside and at the spout. Because it leaks on the inside it gets very slippery and I have a difficult time opening when I need to refill it. Since I have to refill it frequently because the soap spills every time I pump it and spills all over the body of the pump, I'm losing money having to buy soap more often. In addition, the spout has also rusted. This item is too expensive to be worth the money. Don't waste your time and money. So disappointed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very disappointing I bought 6 of these - 2 have stopped pumping, 2 have rusted even though they are used everyday.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Design Works as expected. The material is a bit cheap looking, but the modern design compensates for it. Did not experience any problems with refilling as mentioned in some reviews. I don't fill it all the way, not sure if that makes a difference.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bad quality I bought 2 but both of them are broken. Rusted inside and the top fall apart.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product I bought two of these pumps over 3 years ago and they are fabulous. The only reason I need to replace one of them is because I foolishly tried to wash it in the dishwasher which slightly bent the 'straw' piece so that I have to press the pump many times to get enough shampoo out. I use mine for shampoo and conditioner. I have a very humid bathroom and have not had any of the rusting issues that others have mentioned. Could not recommend highly enough. Just sorry to see that the white is no longer available.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great for a while I have had two penguin dispensers for 17 months. They have been great until I needed to refill one of them. It was rusted inside, hard to open, broke when I did open it, and has leaked soap all over my counter. The dispensers are cute and work well at first, but not a good long-term purchase.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great until it has to be refilled This product was great until I had to refill it. It's hard to unscrew and often detaches, which makes it useless. I've bought two of these and I'm sad to see this become a trend.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Quite disappointed Loved the Penguin Soap Pump UNTIL the internal ring keeping the pump connected to the soap holder rusted and now the whole pump is basically useless as it doesn't stay together and there is rust in the bottom. Hoped it would last longer than just over a year. Really disappointed as I liked it until it broke.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for use with arthritic hands I was having trouble with other soap dispensers because of arthritis in my hands. This dispenser works perfectly and no pain trying to get the soap out.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from love it! I use one in the kitchen and one in the bathroom, they dont take up much space and are easy to refill.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Clever Design Best soap dispenser. Easy to use, doesn't drip onto the counter. Liked it so much bought 2- one for the kitchen and one for the bathroom.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Better looking than the original container This looks great by the kitchen sink for the dishwashing soap. Like the brush nickel finish.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cutie and practical! In search of many different soap dispensers, I found the one I love the most! This Umbra product is very cute and so different from other traditional hourglass soap dispensers. Although it seems quite pricey for just a soap dispenser initially, the exterior looks chic and it does make the whole kitchen setting look more artistic. I treated it more like a great display rather than simply a soap dispenser. In addition to its pleasant artistry, it also puts soap dispenser into practical usage. I found that I'm actually able to control the amount of dish detergent being used since it tends to use up less than 1/3 of how I randomly poured out detergent from a bottle. I highly recommend this product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally! After going through at least a dozen soap dispensers, finally found the perfect one for my dish soap and hand soap. It does not leak onto the counter after use, and it dispenses just the right amount of soap with one pump. Love these little cuties.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Looks good but impossible to open to refill This soap dispenser looks very sharp but opening it to refill it is very difficult. I know it can be done but every time I have a hard time figuring out how to open it. I see the "Unlock" symbol with an arrow pointing to the left but this time it just will not open no matter what I try. I have tried pushing the bottom in a little and then turning it, or not pushing the bottom in, nothing is working. Frustrating. I've had it too long to return it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love these. I use these in the shower to hold shampoo and conditioner. Since there isn't ,teal on the bottom there isn't any rust issue. The brushed nickel looks so elegant and pretty.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Silver soap pump Matches well with my new kitchen sink and faucets, also looks good in the bathrooms. I may get two more! Wish it worked as a foaming dispenser.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Don't buy the white one Love the look. Great for kids - doesn't tip over easily, but wouldn't recommend the white pump. I recently bought one white pump and 2 black pumps. Have had them for a month and a half. The black ones seem to work fine and I love using them. When it was time to refill the white one, I couldn't unscrew the bottom. When I did, the top section with the pump came off with the container and now won't go back on. So I can't secure and close the pump anymore. I loved the design, so I bought another one, thinking that one was just a fluke, but today I tried to refill the pump again and the same thing happened. Very disappointed!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Coolest Design We purchased 2 and ended up getting a 3rd. They hold so much soap, easy to clean and look amazing.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from functional + stylish Bought the stainless one - looks great and feels solid. No leaking problems and I bought 3 - only down side is sometimes after you press and get soap a little remains on the spout after taking your hands away.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Leaky I bought this product almost a year ago. It looks cool and I like the clear strip on the side so I can see when my soap is getting low. However, the black looks dirty with one splash of water on it and anytime I use it, it leaks afterwards. Would not purchase this again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from No problems here I have had this soap pump since August 2011 and have never had a problem with the pump leaking. Overall, it works great and looks very unique!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Cute I love the look of it, and although the bottom of the first one I got was stuck and broke the first time I tried to open it, I took it back to the store and they replaced it and the new one is great. You can see how much is in it through the little window.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well made .... will last - great style! Looks a little bigger than at the store... more imposing at the kitchen sink... but it's cool because it looks good.

Community Q&A

I was going to refill my dispenser and it would not unscrew. I've had this same one for two years and have refilled it many times. What went wrong?

Asked by: organizationobsession
Try using more force when unscrewing the pump and if it still does not unscrew please email us at
