Rated 5 out of 5 by from great addition to the bathroom I needed a solution for my cotton balls, one that looked professional, but also was functional and not time consuming. These are great.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from nice but noisy I bought the smaller jar for q-tips as I wanted glass material and liked the silver top. However, the clang sound every time you remove the lid is so annoying to me. Maybe I'm too picky, but I hate unnecessary noise. These would be better if they were quieter, otherwise I do recommend if you don't mind the ringing ding sound.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Medium more like small Ordered items online & disappointed with size. Medium is more like small, especially for price. Lid rattles when open & close, prefer inner rubber liner

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Small and Medium I have the small and medium apothecary jars. I used to use them in the bathroom to hold cotton balls and q-tips. They worked fine there but I found that they got dirty easily, took up a little too much space, and I didn't care for the clanking sound of the lids. I replaced these with the 2-section acrylic canister, which i absolutely love. I have since moved these jars to my makeup drawer, which is in my bedroom, not bathroom. I use the medium to hold lipsticks and the small for q-tips. I keep the lids off and really like using these jars for this purpose.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Glad I Purchased These I absolutely love these. It's a cute and clean way to store my Q-Tips and cotton rounds. I love being able to store them on the counter where i can easily get to them when i need them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great purchase! I purchased these to store cotton balls, q-tips, and cotton pads in for my bathroom. These look great! They don't look cheap being that they are glass with a nice stainless steel top. And they are a great price! Definitely recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Buy This product is easy and looks great. I've used them in the locker rooms at the fitness center I work at. They hold cottom supplies very well and look classy because they are glass, not plastic.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly Recommend! These three jars are perfect for countertop storage. Plus they provide easy access and are easy to clean. What's not to love!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent!!! These are fantastic and at an amazing price! Found similar products elsewhere for as much as $40/each yet the quality was far less than these. I had been in the search for a simple apothecary jar for the bathroom counter top but only found ones cheaply constructed. The craftsmanship of these is exceptional! These have simple/clean lines and will fit with most any decor. Strongly recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Bathroom Holders These little jars are perfect for our Q-Tips and bobby pins in the bathroom. Keeps them organized, available, and clean for use! AND they are a creative look on the counter with the different contents showing through.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks nice and functional too! These apothecary jars are just perfect for my daughter's vanity. I searched everywhere before finding these (there is no store in our area). They look nice and hold her cotton swabs and cotton balls. I wish there was a store nearby so I could buy more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent addition to my bathroom! Stainless steel lids... sturdy, clear glass.... These space-saving apothecary jars are sleek, stylish and functional. They're modern, but have a vintage vibe about 'em, too. My only, minor complaint is that the large jar, isn't all that large. Perhaps the Container Store will introduce an extra large one, someday soon. Finally, skip trips to other stores and websites. I tried a lot of other places, first, before I found these beauties at the Container Store. Enjoy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love I love these Apothecary jars. I bought 2 but then had to go back to get the 3rd jar. They are so cheap & look great!
Date published: 2012-03-21
Rated 5 out of 5 by from durable and pretty These containers are just lovely. They are pretty and just modern enough to add some edge. They seem like they would be easily breakable, but having dropped the small one twice and daily use for all of them, there are no cracks, chips or scratches. I don't like the sound it makes when opening and closing it, but that's a very minor complaint.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sleek bathroom accessories I was so happy to find these jars for my bathroom. They are sleek enough to have out on the counter all the time. I store cotton balls and make-up remover pads in them and they look wonderful. I don't like a lot of clutter on my counters. These jars have a very nice design that I am not ashamed to have out all the time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Perfect Apothecary Jar I bought the small and medium jars for q-tips and cotton balls. The are absolutely perfect. The lid is easy to take on and off and also easy to clean. They are not only functional, but look fantastic. You could use them to store anything and not have to sacrifice on looks.
Date published: 2012-02-17
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great, but slippery! I bought the small and medium to hold qtips and cotton balls. I put them on my marble vanity top... and they were slipping around all over the place. I could just see my cat playing a little air hockey with them. So, I modified them a little bit. I stuck some Sugru (flexible silicon putty) to the bottoms of the jars and now they stay put on my marble counter and look beautiful. I suppose you could use those little sticky dots, but the counter gets wet, so Sugru fit my purpose perfectly. NOW I love them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pretty and Utile I was very pleasantly surprised when my Apothecary Jars arrived. They were of better quality and held more than I expected. They fit well in my bathroom and look great.
Date published: 2012-01-29
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better even than expected! These are even better than I had expected! I bought one of each - large for cotton balls, medium for cotton swabs, and I haven't quite decided what will go in the small one (I think maybe for either hair elastics or band-aids). The weight and thickness of the glass and tops was more than I expected; they seem quite sturdy. They are also larger than I expected - the small one will quite easily hold cotton swabs (I had expected it would be too small for them). For the quality and design I think these are very well priced.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Little Jars I ordered these for holding Q-tips and cotton balls on my bath counter top. They look excellent. The one thing I would have liked more is the thickness of the glass. These are thicker than others I have seen, but still thin. When you buy them keep in mind that they will not take a lot of abuse without breaking.

Are lids polished or brushed?

Are the lids a polished stainless steel or more of a brushed look? The picture looks more brushed than polished which I prefer, but I can't tell for certain.

As we settle into summer, with all the fun happening around us, sometimes the house "business" gets pushed off a bit. Who can blame us, right? Vacations to enjoy, kids at home to entertain.

With the right products and just a little time - you can brighten up some of those boring areas with some quick 30-minute makeovers that won't seem like a chore.
