Rating: Love the look of these tins!! I bought the 15 ml as well as the 250 ml canisters.
The 15 ml are perfect for samples and lip balms. The 250 ml are great for body butters. The only problem is they scratch and dent very easily, which makes it a less attractive look when selling them with products. I'd buy the 15 ml again but not the 250 ml :(
Rating: These are amazing!! First of all, a huge thank you to new directions for taking such time and care with their packaging. Each tin came individually wrapped in plastic and there was no sign of dents anywhere. The lids screw on and off really easily and the 15ml tins will be perfect for my solid perfumes.
Rating: I purchased these tins in all sizes except 15ml and am sold! I use them for my balm which sometimes melts due to its high coconut oil content and I needed ones that would contain the mess. They haven't leaked for me or customers yet as long as they open them right side up to make sure the contents haven't melted. I like that I have uniform packaging for all my product sizes at affordable prices. Out of 120 tins ordered I received 1 dented so I didn't mind that. I dropped others a few times and each time expected them to have dented but they didn't. I have been careful when transporting them though because of reviews I saw about denting so me taking extra care might be part of why they haven't dented!
Rating: I used the 150ml canisters for my handmade cp shaving soap. Just the right size and I love that they have a screw on lid which makes them usable for more applications. A good percentage of my sales in summer come from cottagers so they are much more confident putting something in their suitcase that has a screw on lid. Thinking of using these for my eczema salve also, and I am sure I will find many more uses for them.

Rating: I've re-ordered the 15 ml canisters three times, as they are the perfect size for lip balms. Although I see other reviews that talk about denting, I've never found the canisters to be that fragile. I take my balms to craft fairs, and they travel well. I also ship lip balms all over Canada and the USA via the post office and I've never had a customer comment that the tins were dented. These are just great little tins.

Rating: Hey I love the idea of these. Has anyone tried using them for a sugar scrub? Would the aluminum rust or errode in the shower? Are they leak proof?
Rating: I use the 15 & 30ml tins, and they are awesome - I love the screw top lids! I hope they get those sizes back in stock soon.

Rating: I use the 30ml, 60ml and 150ml canisters and they are the best for my homemade butters, lip balms and specialty creams! I've noticed though I can no longer order the 30 & 60ml sizes, so sad!!!! Hopefully they will come back into stock.
Rating: Like many of the previous reviews, I find these containers to be just right for my intended use, the 15ml for lip balms, and the 150ml for body butters. A professional solution to packaging my homemade products.
Rating: I am very happy with these containers. I ordered the small ones for the cuticle balm i made, and they turned out lovely. Was a little tricky finding labels to fit on them but finally got some at Staples. Great product.!
Rating: I love these to put my lotion bars in! They look really sharp and professional!

Rating: This is a perfect size for various creams I make such as baby rash cream and sunscreen. It's not huge, but the creams go such a long ways that it's just the right size. Makes it look so professional too!
Rating: I also love the canisters and use the largest format for my body dusting powder. However, I do restrict my use of them for well-packed mail orders only as they are far too easily dented in retail and/or craft sale situations.
Rating: Great size for lotion the 60 ML a pretty nice affordable package for the lotions.

Rating: Love the 15ml for lip balm! Customers have found that they do dent easily, but it's not enough of a problem to make me stop ordering them. I've also found that Avery 08293 labels fit perfectly on the 15ml lids :)
Rating: I love these, I use them for lip balms and what`s great is that the lid doesn`t open easily so there`s no worries of it opening in your bag, pockets, etc.. (of course I do not recommend putting home made lip balms in your pockets because they melt) I would like to see a 10ml one, I think it would be PERFECT for lip balms, just the right size!

Rating: I am buying some in my next order... all I need now is a 5ml size please! I can't wait to see/try them!
Rating: Love these! They are perfect for lip balms ( especially the 15 ml size!) they come packaged well so they don't scratch and the lids have excellent grip. Super easy to use and my customers love them!
Rating: These are perfect for use with lipbalm. They are easy to open even if your hands are wet and/or slippery. They are however very fragile. They scratch and dent easily, so what ever you do, don't drop them! Other then that, I love them very much.
Rating: I really love these containers! I only wish they came in 1 1/2 oz!

Rating: I've been asking for a product like this in the yearly survey, and NDA came through! Thank-you!
The 15mL size is perfect for holding samples, or making travel-sized versions of my product. And no worries about it falling open in someone's purse or backpack and making a big mess. Thank-you again, NDA!
Rating: Thank goodness for New Directions! These canisters with screw on lids included are perfect and exactly what I have been looking for. There is a lid liner in each lid too. Each canister is thoughtfully packed in its own little baggie to prevent scratching - I will reuse this when selling my products to the customer. I found the lid easy to grab & turn even wet or slippery hands.

Rating: I love this aluminum canister, very light and fit perfectly my products; plus the lids come with it, so no need to have to spend time looking for the best lids. You have to handle it very carefully to avoid bendings and scratching though, (which is very understandable, you can't have it all) other than that I love it.
Rating: Hi. I would like to say, first, how well New Directions packs everything. Each tin is in it's own little individual baggy so it can't get scratched. Very thoughtful and impressive. My customers have already commented on how much easier it is to get into the screw on lid. My labels fit and look great on the 60ml size. Keep up the excellent work! Thanks!

Rating: Cute, classy and chic, I also love the twist-off top and the little ridges around the top that make it easy to twist open and shut tightly.
Rating: This cannister is absolutely perfect because of the screw-on lid. The lid slides off the seamless ones too easily and customers end up with oily product in places it shouldn't be. I've been searching for a very long time for this type of metal container to put my salves in, so thank you !
