I got this a month ago. I only just tried using it today for a vacation trip. the silicone bottle feels very good and durable. One of the three bottles leaked air and liquid. On further inspection, the silicone lip had a small fragment still attached similar to being tongue tied (where the lingual frenulum is still attached to the bottom of the tongue) preventing the silicon from wrapping completely around the plastic throat piece so when the cap was screwed on, that area did hot have a good seal. Carefully using an x-acto knife to detach one side then just pinching and pulling off the piece, the silicone lip was able to now completely cover the plastic throat piece, creating a solid seal ( fortunately there were no injuries since I am flying out tomorrow for vacation). The small blue container is very, very small, probably only useful for storing contacts.

I bought these specifically for my homemade toothpaste, and these make it so handy. The squeeze bottles are very soft to the touch and have a wider mouth, which makes filling them easier. The squirt top is not a tiny pinprick hole but an X-shape opening, which makes for easier dispensing of my homeopathic toothpaste. The two tiny pots would be great for homemade lip balm or under-eye cream or the like.
These bottles are great! I bought them after reading many mixed reviews about how well they hold up. I did notice that the little travel bags they come in do fall apart almost immediately, but I really wasn't buying them for the bags. The bottles are absolutely wonderful and didn't leak even once!
The only big issue I did have was that I attempted to put my moroccan oil into one of the bottles and it totally warped. I didn't have a problem with any of the other bottles, so I'd guess this particular material isn't meant to hold oil (it kind of seemed as though it just absorbed a bunch of it and ballooned up). As long as you're not planning to use these for any type of oil, you should be set!
I travel extensively, and on more than one occasion my travel bottles have leaked into my travel kit. I suspect that part of the problem is the difference in cabin pressure at altitude may force the liquid out, but I can't be sure of that. Regardless, in order to contain any leakage, I have had to resort to packing my travel bottles inside their own plastic bag. I am hoping that using these bottles may eliminate that. I have used them on two trips now (8 flights, 26,000 miles) and nothing has leaked. Getting back to what I said earlier about the cabin air pressure, these bottles are flexible, and permit you to get out nearly all the air, so there is little, if any air pressure to force out the liquid. I may still keep them inside separate plastic bags for a while longer, but am hoping that these may eliminate the leakage problem entirely.
I needed some extra bottles and containers to carry my many essences and serums on a recent trip. This stuff is expensive and I didn't want to risk a single drop leaking out. These are awesome. No leaks and squeezing them doesn't make them crack like plastic bottles can. Worth every penny.
I took this when I traveled abroad to Europe for two weeks, and it worked perfectly for my needs. I was able to fit enough toner and face wash in these bottles to last me the entire trip. They are definitely leakproof! I always have trouble with leaking bottles when I travel but these bottles did not leak at all I was pleasantly surprised! They definitely live up to the hype and saves the potential headache that comes with leaking bottles. The bottles are so soft and easy to squeeze liquids out. The tiny little jars that I used for hair oil were useful as well. I did not know how much I needed these travel bottles until I traveled with them and saw how much more convenient they were than bringing full sized bottles of each product that I needed. These save a lot of space for traveling, and they solve the issue of leakage.
Awesome travel containers. I have tried so many travel containers and before this, they all leaked all over my stuff. These didn't leak at all, even when I put them in my checked back on the plane. The small screw cap containers leaked a little onto the inner top, but didn't get outside of the screw cap and was contained. Would definitely buy again.
Great set of travel bottles. The little plastic bag they come in just goes in the trash however. Get something cute for yourself and don't bother with the cheap bag. These bottles are worth it!! I was a little worried in the beginning about leakage because..we have all been there..Opening our bag to see half a container everywhere! As a flight attendant this is my worst nightmare and I am super paranoid even putting plastic wrap under the lids with other bottles. However these bottles are incredible!!! I have been using them for a while now as I like to pack small and not bring big bottles and even pouring liquid toner in these, they don't leak! I would purchase 10x over and recommend these to all my coworkers and friends. I also adore how they are silicone so you can squeeze out every last ounce of product unlike the hard plastic bags.

I travel a lot and have depended on the no leak bottles from the container store for years. Those are good but these are so much better. I love that they are 3oz for carry on purposes. The hole to fill them with product is large and easy to fill. The very best part is that they are soft which makes them easy to squeeze and get the product out. I have pretty bad RA and my hands can work these bottles with no pain. They didn’t leak at all. Overall excellent
I've taken these on about five trips so far. They've endured air pressure and altitude changes from flying and have spent quality time in a hot car. Not even a hint of a leak so far - I love it. These are soft, durable, and seal well. They were easy to fill, as the mouths are relatively wide. They dispense well, although I've yet to test them on something with an extremely thin consistency. So far, I've filled them with lotion, shampoo, conditioner, sunscreen, and hair gel. Would buy again
These travel bottles deserve 10 stars!! Very high quality, I love the color of the silicone bottles, very easily filled & functional. The sticker labels included are pretty neat as well. They stick perfect onto the white plastic part on the lid
