Bamboo Countertop Essentials
Perfect set for me
My bathroom is all white and I have beautiful wooden floors throughout my apartment. The bamboo sets adorns my bathroom beautifully.

Soapdish holds up!
We purchased this soap dish 3 years ago for use in our shower. For 3 years it regularly got soaked during each shower and it has held up nicely. Only this past couple months did the wood finally start to show some wear (little swelling and some darkening). It was still functionally good, but being a visual perfectionist I decided to replace it last week. Because it held up so well, I bought the same exact one again.

Attractive but poorly-made and a bad idea
I have used these items for two months at the time of writing this review.
I love how they look. But they are poorly-designed and not well made.
Too many nooks and crannies for objects that will be sitting in a bathroom, with water and soap frequently running over them. I scrub out that soap dish every single day, and I still can't get out all the gunk that accumulates in the cracks.
The soap-pump dispenser stopped working, gummed up, and rusted all over itself after a month. I threw it out.
Overall, these looked nice at first, but were a waste of money. I will replace them with similar items that are smooth and seamless, made of glass or plastic.

A little rust
I got this set minus the bar soap holder. The bamboo part of the containers is really nice looking and a decent quality. I think some other material should be used in place of the metal though. The soap dispenser got rusted so I threw that part out and have continued to just use the base. The toothbrush holder has been fine though. I used the container with the lid for cotton rounds. The lid seems to attract a lot of dust but maybe it's just my house. Fits perfectly on the tchotchke shelves and display cubes.
