This is the second most effective lip product I've ever used for chapped lips, the first being original burts bees Chapstick. The consistency is more silky and lightweight, but it somehow really lasts on the lips, and I'm prone to licking my lip stuff off. The scent is very minimal, slight minty lime that disappears seconds after applying. No burning or cooling sensation. The clear, thinner gel does leave a bit of shine if you use a lot, but it's not too noticeable. Men and women can use this effective and wonderful product. I do wish the price was a bit less, but I will probably buy it again in the future. It's great for someone who suffers with year round, severely chapped lips. Use this every day before bed and you'll feel the difference.
