Rating: Nice product. Product arrived on time. Nothing was damaged. The canister were not damaged.
So far, I'm very pleased with their products and deliver services. I purchased the rose water and I didn't have any issues. I'm very sensitive to a lot of products and I'm very careful as to what I put on and in my body.
I get a allergy shoot monthly and I have been getting the shots now for 5 years. We are not always nice to the environment as an result we pay the cost.
Rating: I love these tins. I have used products from other companies, but these are much higher quality. They have been the only containers that I could find for my sugar scrub product that actually don't leak oil out of the sides. I use the 5 oz container for the sugar scrub. I use the 1 oz container for a herbal salve that I make. I have a 2 oz glass jar (from Amazon) that I used but wanted a 1 oz size, so I took a chance on this product and I love it. The 1 oz was actually the 1st one that I bought and then I bought the 5 oz to try that out. I plan to buy the 2 oz next and stop using the glass jars. These tins look very high end/classy. I use them mainly for oil products, but did make a baby butt cream salve that has a little witch hazel in it and I've not seen any sign of rust. They are coated, apparently, so that shouldn't be a problem. I very highly recommend these tins!!
Rating: I love these containers!! I'd been buying a similar product from another vendor for over a year, but they very difficult to open (the lid came down very low and there was little space to grip the bottom while twisting the lid) and they sometimes came scuffed up - but THESE are WONDERFUL!! They came wrapped individual in plastic and each one (I bought 30) is just perfect (I'd seen a review below where they were dented) - no dents, no scuffs- very nicely secured in a box. I am so happy I bought these!!

Rating: I use this container for salt scrubs and body butters. I like the industrial look of the ridged screw top and this design facilitates easy opening. The matte finish gives it a professional, retail ready look. My customers appreciate that aluminum is a recyclable material. Some reviewers have noted dents, but my orders of canisters arrived dent-free. I plan to continue using ND's aluminum canisters for my product line.

Rating: Great for creams and mud mask packaging. I use the 60ml. PERFECT size and it is great the lid doesn't pop off. It just twists. Easy to find labels as well.

Rating: These 3 oz Aluminum Canisters (With Screw Top Lid) are excellent for my smaller shaving soaps. The quality and packaging were great and delivery was super-fast. Thank you!
Rating: These worked well for us. Both times we ordered a few of these, the canisters were not padded when shipped and sustained significant damage. I called the first time there was damage but after this second time, when almost every tin had dents, I will not order these again. We just don't have time to return them due to our retail demand- but it makes our product look in poor condition.
New Directions Aromatics Response:
We are very sorry for the fact that your canisters arrived dented, we will investigate our warehouse operations to see what we can do to improve how we pack the canisters so that they arrive in good condition.
Rating: These containers are not as heavy as some others you can buy, but they are very nice if you don't want a real weighty container. The lids stay screwed on nicely; I have had problems with other tins from another supplier regarding this. I have had no problems with denting, so far. I use them for lip balm and also for an herbal balm.
By:Julie, Watertown, New York Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 18-Sep-2009
Rating: Very disappointed in these. I got them in the 1/2 size to use as mini creme blush sample holders for my customers. First off, they look a bit cheap thanks to the notched border around the lid and the low tinny sheen. And they feel flimsy with almost no weight to it, I could have been holding a bit of paper. To top it off at least half the containers in the package were dented, most on the bottom, but some on the lids, and so I couldn't use them in the way that I had intended, so that's a loss I have to absorb since I had to basically throw them out. The two larger 3.3 and 5oz containers that I ordered alongside the 1/2oz ones weren't dented but they too looked cheap and felt flimsy. I specifically got them because of the screw on tops and because they were cheaper than the ones I usually purchase, I guess there was a reason. They don't looked like the weighty polished aluminum canisters that I'm used to, containers that I've been getting on Ebay of all places, go figure. Won't be repurchasing them here. This so far has been my only disappointing NDA purchase.

Rating: I ordered these for the first time in the 2 oz size for my body balm and I just LOVE them. The finished product is so cute and professional looking....I am thinking of trying the other sizes for some of my other products too!
I will definitely be ordering more of these on my next order!

Rating: Very handy for scrubs! *Wish I knew where the aluminum came from. Is it recycled?* Thanks!

Rating: I love the 1/2 oz. canister! Perfect for lip balms! But where did they go? Haven't been able to get them for over a month!

Rating: I just love these cannisters! They are great for balms, butters, and creams. They coordinate very well with the aluminum bottles, too. ND has great products at competitive prices.
By:Terri, Atlanta, Georgia Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 06-Aug-2009
Rating: This cannister is perfect for my body butter because of the screw-on lid, no risk of the lip slipping of and have product everywhere. Practical and trendy, Thank you.
By:Erin, Oshawa, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
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!
By:Elizabeth, Scarborough, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
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.
By:Mike, Toronto, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: These containers stack well and with the variety of sizes they can be used for just about anything!
By:Mike, Victoria, British Columbia Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: I really love these containers! I only wish they came in 1 1/2 oz!
By:Crystal, Blackie, Alberta Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: I bought the 5 oz. size, and it turned out to be my favorite container for body butter. I found that three of these can fit into a small flat rate shipping box.
By:Brook, Alameda, California Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 18-Feb-2010
Rating: I really like these for my body balms. And they are easy to wash and reuse.
By:Shirleen, Penetanguishene, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: I love the look and feel of these tins. The screw on lid is fantastic and the set is very light for shipping.
Wonderful for butters, masks, etc.
By:Stephanie, Sewell, New Jersey Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 11-May-2009
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!
By:Heather, Windsor, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
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.
By:Terry, Toronto, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: For Christmas, I gave all the ladies lip balms using the 1/2 oz size, and they were perfect. Great presentation -- everyone loved the packaging, and didn't know it was "homemade".
By:Laura, Lakeville, Massachusetts Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 22-Mar-2009
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.
By:Carmelie, Orleans, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
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!
By:Marlene, Seeley's Bay, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
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.
By:Allison, Hamilton, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
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 !
