I love the cooling, easy-to-use slanted metal applicator tip- simply press down the button atop of the dispenser and apply the product to your lips & area around the lips; massage into the applied area(s) and you're ready for bed! I love that it's non-irritating, even with my super-sensitive skin and doesn't burn, sting, or have an icky scent or texture. It easily absorbs into the lips and has a light minty taste : ) I've seen a noticeable improvement in the fine lines around my mouth, in addition to an improvement in the elasticity, texture, & smoothness of my lips- with their overall healthy being noticeably better as well! This is one that I highly recommend!
