I think I would just leave the door to this antique medicine cabinet open all of the time.
This transparent glass is great. I think it would be kind of funny if it were composed completely of pink Pepto Bismol or Blue Maalox bottles.
Here's a nice traditional look. I bet people snoop through these a lot.
A take on lining up one's "dolls" - various bathsalts and aromatherapy crystals make a great composition in these small jars.
If you're a Sephora junkie with a Prescriptives or Kiehl's collection, it looks fine out in the open when well composed.
Again, pretty and uniform bottles are dandy in open shelves. Just make sure you keep them from getting covered in lint and dust, like that bowl of shell-shaped soaps my grandmother kept on the back of the commode for 20+ years.
These ornate mirror does a great job of hiding the medicine cabinet. Side Note: Isn't it wonderful that it is the one over-the-top element in the room, while everything else is simple? That's how to do it!
Oversized apothocary jars filled with just one type of item each are attractive in the bathroom. If someone can get to the Q-tips this easily, they have no excuse for opening up the medicine cabinet.
These are two of my vintage medicine cabinets. In case you are wondering, my sink base is an antique icebox. Weird, I know!
Vintage tins and mason jars are great for creating little displays inside. My latest addition is this rusty old Ex-Lax tin that has its price, 5 cents, printed on it.
