A lot of people complain about the shampoo bars not fitting into the tin (especially when it's new) and the shampoo bar getting stuck inside the bar when it dries. Fortunately, I was quick to figure out solutions for both problems!
1. When your shampoo bar is new, don't force it in the tin. Just put in as much as you can. And don't bother putting the cap on. Once the shampoo bar shrinks after at least 3 uses, it should fit nicely in the tin anyway.
2. After using the shampoo bar and it's all wet, place the shampoo bar in the cap (the smaller, thinner tin) to dry. Because this tin is thinner, it'll be easier to take out the shampoo bar when it gets stuck rather than placing it in the actual tin to dry and it's hard to fork out because the thickness of the tin and shampoo bar are too similar.

I think you can go on without this tin if you can find a substitute container to put your shampoo bar in - honestly, I think a small Tupperware will suffice. But I bought the tin anyway because I was overseas when I bought my shampoo bar and didn't have easy access to my own containers! Plus, the tin was cheaper in South East Asia than it would've been if I had bought it in Australia, so I rationalised buying it through this reasoning. Plus, this tin won't require repurchasing anyway unless it actually becomes broken, so I decided to buy the tins anyway because it's something I can reuse no matter how many shampoo bars I buy from Lush.

These used to be free with 2 shampoo bars, but l think that offer is long gone. My tins have lasted about 7 years with careful use. When l used solid shampoo l used to lean the wet shampoo bar on the edge of the tin then lay flat once dry. However, my bestest use is as a travel container for cotton rounds - a perfect fit that will hold about 13! Enjoy!

I didn't buy this tin anyway.... I bought the 'new' shampoo bar from lush and they recommended me to buy this tin as it could keep the bar dry and easier for travelling. I just thought it's not worth to buy a tin for almost 4 bucks. When I got back home, I put my bar in the lush mask container. The black plastic one. It fits perfectly!!! I saw there are so many people saying that the bar sticked on the tin and couldn't get it out. This didn't happen on the mask container because it is much wider than the tin. However, the bottom part is just the size of the bar! It will also be a little sticky when you put the bar inside when it is wet. But you can get it out easily because only the bottom part but not the whole bar got sticked. Try it!!!!

It stores the shampoo but it sticks when you put it in wet. As others said here, it defeats the purpose. I have to put the shampoo bar in then flip it upside down so it lays on the lid, so it doesn't stick. It would be nice if I didn't need to do that.

I have three of these and I only use them out of the shower. You can't put the shampoo in whiles its wet otherwise it sticks and ruins the shampoo. Which to me defeats the purpose. I only use them in traces so the pucks don't get crushed or flake off in my bag.

This tin works fine if you purchase a small, round plastic soap holder with those little suction cups to use with it (you can find them at Walmart in the hardware section or the hardware store). The width of those little holders is exactly that of this tin & the shampoo bars. I let the shampoo dry on the plastic soap holder (which due to the suction cups elevates the soap & it dries without making a mess), then I store the soap in the tin on top of the soap holder (it's thin so it fits in the tin with the soap). Zero issues. I like the solid shampoos to wash my dog with, they make him smell good, and with the tin I can store the soap for ages since I don't bath my doggie too often.

I read reviews on the tin before purchasing. I punched holes in the bottom of mine with a screwdriver for water and moisture to drain and it works like a charm.

I don't understand why people are complaining about the bars getting stuck. What did you think would happen?
You put a wet bar of soapy stuff into a snug fitting tin, yeah, it's going to stick. That's just common sense, isn't it?

I knew that would happen before I even used the bar for the first time, so instead when the bar is wet, I put the bar into the tin lid instead and leave it to dry. It still sticks, but because the lid is shallow it's simple to just pop it out. I only use the base when I'm going travelling and the bar is already dry.

I don't know if I just got a fluke tin or something, as no one else seems to be complaining about this, but this thing is impossible to open if you put the lid on tight! Seriously, I've found myself wrestling with it for several minutes, or stepping out of the shower to try and pry it open with a knife. I have to keep one side of it semi-opened. Also, my bar, which is getting pretty worn down, has now decided to soften and stick inside the tin and I don't think it wants to come back out. It'd get stuck before but nothing a few solid whacks wouldn't fix!

I do like the idea because I think you do need somewhere to keep those shampoo bars, but it just occurred to me that the little pots you get the fresh facemasks in might be a better place to store them...at least those are openable...will investigate that!

I got this free when I bought 2 shampoo bars on my last trip to LUSH. I completely believe that if you give this product a bad review, it is the user, not the tin. I put my wet shampoo bar in the well and leave the cover off overnight. The next day I simply replace the cover until the next time I shower. I have never had a problem with my shampoo bar getting stuck.
