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.

I used to put my lush shampoo bars in this but ended up getting the same result as everyone else- i couldn't get it out once it had dried inside the tin. Very difficult to get it out after that. However I now use it to keep my babyface cleanser in which is perfect! It means the babyface won't melt all over my other toiletries and is just great for travelling!

Lemonjump is totally right, you cannot get the bars out if you put them in when they are wet and they dry inside the tin, they just dont pop out, and not worth it, free or not, i like lemonjumps idea to put sd cards and small things in like medication or jewellery or change, whatever, or if you are a crafter then little beads. I use them to melt and mix my own lip balm!

got it free for buying two shampoo bars at once. And the biggest problem is that there's no way you can get your bars out once you put them in it!!! but I can still use it for other stuff that I have, like my SD cards, those small things that I might lose.

I hate these tins. DO NOT put your shampoo bar in it if you ever want to get it out. I did it ONCE to my squeaky green and it is still stuck in it, I have to scrap chunks out of the tin with my nails in order to use it now.

LUSH always has a deal: Buy two shampoo bars & get a shampoo tin for free. What a deal! I've never paid for a tin, always get the free deal. I own two shampoo tins, I use one tin for 2 shampoo bars. I keep NEW! in the deeper part & I keep my Godiva in the lid. Works perfect so the drippage stays controlled. Do not put a wet shampoo bar in the tin & close the lid UNLESS it has been used quite a bit & has shrunk in size. It will most likely get stuck & you'll end up smashing the bar in order to get it out. You can use this tin to store toner tabs, cleanser, babyface, or to actually store a shampoo puck while traveling.
I have stopped using Lush haircare. It was too drying for my scalp. I do love the idea of solid shampoo & conditioners though & the scents are so amazing. The hair products do have SLS which I've learned can be drying to the scalp. I've been using the Rainforest line from The Body Shop since late summer & liking it so far.

I looooove the shampoo bar tins !!
I use them for my Babyface cleanser and Sweet Japanese girl cleanser mostly... and if it happens to be put in wet by accident, it's sooo simple to take out. Just squeeze the jar a little while holding upside down and it pops right out !! I love these.... they are fantastic for travel and re-useable !!

Good for travel but NEVER put a puck in wet if you ever want to get it out again.

F***** S****** B*******!!!!!!!!!!!!%#&%*&@$*^@$*
I hate this product. After purchasing two bars at once, I got a free tin. I was delighted when i first tried my ultimate shine bar because it's totally amazing! So, I thought nothing of it when I put my bar inside of the tin after it's first use. Well, now i can't get it out! GREAT! It's mess-ups like this that make me not take lush seriously as a company... they really seem to be quite stupid in certain departments.

Great idea, but unfortunately the shampoo bar won't fit in the tin- until after a few uses. This tin should be about 15% bigger. I got it for free when I ordered 2 Squeaky Green bars, so can't complain about the price. I imagine the tin could be used for other products- like solid face cleansers, soap chunks and similar. It's made of light metal, very portable and won't break during travel-

I've received many of these with my LUSH purchases, since I buy two shampoo bars at a time, so you get a tin free. They are a very good idea for storage of shampoo bars in the shower. The only bad thing is that they need to be a little bit bigger, as a new shampoo bar won't fit into the tin until it has been used a few times.

AWFUL! I actually paid for these (I got 2!) as I thought they were a great idea. I cannot for the life of me get the tins open when I need to and when I finally prize them open (after much swearing) I can't take the shampoo bar out. Useless.

I love this tin. I do not use it for shampoo bars as I have a soap dish on suction cups that keeps it dry in the shower. I use this for massage bars as I cut them into thirds and store the rest in the fridge. I love that it clicks shut and stays secure. I get them free when I purchase shampoo bars so they are good value!

I have no choice but to get this for my shampoo pucks, they should make it where its easier to remove our puck shampoo bar out of that container, i have to dig out my puck from this tin, and end up smashing the sides of my puck shampoo bar, and half of it is smeared and left on the bottom of the tin, Im thinking of using the body butter tin's but that will take up my shower rack, I hope they improve either the puck bar where it doesnt stick to the tin or remake the tin for these puck shampoos.
