NalgeneÂ® Snap Closure Leakproof Vials
I use the vial for diabetic test strips and lancets when I have used them. When it's full, I empty it in the trash. Saves running back and forth, and is especially useful for traveling. I wouldn't recommend this style for liquids, though, since cap has to be pulled off, and it's unclear that a liquid wouldn't leak, especially on airplanes.

Multiple Extraordinary Uses
Have used all sizes of these for "years." I use a label maker to identify each container# I keep creams/lotions in their regular containers to stay fresh & uncontaminated, and load the different products into these containers# Thus, I can have multiple products in such a small space with makeups, first-aid kits, medicines, etc# I have kept liquids for months with no spills or drying out# I have NEVER had one to crack or pop open# They clean perfectly if you want to reuse for a different product# I've even used them to sort coins by size and easy to see# Tums/Rolaids fit perfectly to have in a purse or bedside and take up so little space# Topical creams from larger tubes are safe in these# Small items in a sewing kit, especially needles, are dry and safe# Great for sorting buttons# I've also used the leakproof, screw=type jars with great success. But, these products have extended the life of my many, varied products and items for a very long time. With these, you can travel with just about anything you use at home, and slide them into small plastic zipper cases. Easy to go through TSA; easy to see what you have; easy to see what you need to replenish; easy to use at any time; and, all this at so little cost. I guarantee you will love these products. I have not found a limitation other than larger items that limit their use.

Great for traveling with products
I love using these for creams and other face/body products that I use sparingly, like eye mousturizer or hair serum. They don't leak and take up even less space than most travel-sized products you can buy off the shelves. I even travel with these in my purse and most usually get through security just fine.
I wouldn't use these with very viscous products, like contact solution or anything, but most creams and gels are fine.

Great For Medication
I bought 7 of the size vials (.6 oz. size) to store my daily morning pills and supplements. They are the perfect size and stay perfectly closed while traveling. Since, I have bought over 20 vials for other various storage needs because they were such a great price for exceptional quality!
