I have used this “cosmetic bag” as a slip in iPhone case to throw in my purse. It keeps it from getting scratched and dirty, and easily found in a purse that is often a jumbled mess. I don’t zip it shut, so it’s quick to grab the phone when needed. L this is absolutely the best protection for the new phones with large, protruding camera lenses!
I have this same style that I purchased over 10 years ago and it is still in perfect shape. I use it as a wallet, it's very light and takes up very little room. I needed a second wallet to carry in my purse (long story) so I immediately bought another one of these.
I use it for pens, pencils, bandaids, sweetener, emery board etc. very cute and strong.
