I'm an amateur aromatherapist (read: I like good smelly things that make me happy) and had been searching for a way to put my concoctions in something a bit more safe than, "Ooh! Here's an empty glass jar!"
That being said, know that I wasn't looking for anything fancy.
My factors in deciding on these were as follows: I got the Cobalt because they were prettier than the brown. I didn't really know for what size I was looking The price was right Any negative feedback didn't faze me what-so-ever.
The only drawback of these bottles is the less-than-efficient dropper. Does it get every last drop? Nope. Does it get enough for me to be satisfied with my purchase? Oh, yes.
In terms of for what I wanted, I got it. If you're looking for something that holds your potions without spilling or spoiling, these are for you. If you're looking for something fancy that is lab grade, it's probably not for you. -ahem, correction- IF you're a high school biology teacher like me and want to know if these are "lab grade", the answer is, "How much do you trust your students to follow directions and what is the allowed margin of error?"
I'd buy these again in a heartbeat. This purchase has been great.
The bottles are well made - no sharp edges anywhere, and the glass droppers had no chips. The dropper doesn't go all the way to the bottom - BUT, tilt it a bit and you can get it all. I use these for tinctures and homeopathic remedies, for which the glass dropper is essential. They are reasonably priced, were shipped promptly, and well-packed. These are an okay bottle, which will do an okay job, for a small amount of money. Caps do not drip and secure tightly. approx. 60 ml to neck on a fill. Blue bottle will help prevent sun damage. These are not lab grade bottles. *After a few days own using and filling all bottles I have added a star and will say that they have preformed perfectly.
I was a little weary when purchasing these because of past experiences ordering sealed sterile glass vials, or glass droppers like this. So, while a good chunk of my review will be on their shipping process, I figured many other people would have the same concern about ordering glass bottles through the mail.
Simply put, in this case did an incredible job packaging these up. Not one of those occasions where the skimp and scrap to save a few more cents on packaging. I'll add a picture below to give an idea, but they did a great job because none of the glass bottles are touching each other. Each glass vial is wrapped separately from the other, than the bundle of 6 is wrapped up a few times. It keeps them securely in place, and protected from each other. On top of that, they filled the top, bottom, and sides of box with those air cushion bags, so the glass bottles wouldn't even be able to shake around in the box. Perfect.
As for the glass bottles themselves, they are just as described. All the droppers on mine work perfectly. Only complaint I possibly could have is the droppers don't have any kind of measurements on them. For my purposes, it would be great to have milliliters marked so I could accurately measure out the proper mg/ml for the stored chemical. Not a big deal, I'll just have to make a mark myself. Would highly recommend these to anyone.
These bottles came packaged very securely in bubble wrap. Beautiful cobalt blue bottles are perfect for tinctures. Long dropper gets the last bit at the bottom. Unlike other reviews I think the amount of draw of the dropper is great. If you need more then simply squeeze the bulb, turn the dropper up, then release the bulb and squeeze it again in this position, place dropper back in the bottle and release it. You'll get well over 1/2 of the dropper full. Excellent quality product!
This is my 2nd order of these Great Bottles!! I was kinda hesitant because of some peoples comments on the Dropper. The problem is, this is a Larger Bottle than what is pictured for the "Main Picture" when you are searching. The Dropper can only pull up a certain amount because the Black Bulb is Not a Giant Bulb. So you only get what the bulb can pull up and if you really Squeeze it, you can pull up about half of whatever Liquid you have inside that you are using it for. So the Glass Dropper is longer and almost reaches the bottom, but you can only pull the liquid half way up the Glass Tube/Dropper. This is what some people don't like. They work great, but Technically for their size they should have a Larger Bulb. But for the Price, you can't beat it anywhere! $10 bucks for a 12 pack!! Highly Recommended!!
These droppers are working out great for my homemade tinctures and eardrops. The cost was very reasonable so I was concerned about the quality but they are just fine. They were wrapped tightly in bubble wrap and all arrived ok. They are beautiful!
First time I ordered these they came with droppers that were pointed and they didn't work great, but they worked. This time I thought I ordered the same product but I guess they changed it to a dropper with a round bottom. The droppers are terrible, they hardly suck any liquid up and you have to try several times to get just a little. Do not recommend.
