Pros: Subtle, soothing, moisturizing, non-greasy, and most importantly, non-waxy. This is a perfect product, IMHO.
Cons: NONE! (other than it occasionally being hard to find!)
I have used Neutrogena Lip Moisturizer for over 7 years now, and at one point could no longer find it in stores, at which time I almost panicked. (as much as one can panic over not finding one of their staple beauty products.) This is one of those "can't live without" products, no matter what time of year. It immediately soothes, and the hidden benefit that I have noticed is that it seems to be preventing "lip lines" from forming as I age (a natural aging phenomenon). A long ago smoker, and in my early fifties now, I was quite paranoid about developing those.. and at the first sight of them beginning, I attacked - with this lip balm! It seems to have stopped them in their tracks, and that was years ago. For that reason alone, I am grateful. I use it liberally, and often. Put simply, I LOVE THIS PRODUCT. It works okay under lipstick.. but I usually put it on to moisturize, then wipe off excess before putting on lipstick.
Equally good for men too I would think, other than the very slight shine, which goes away fairly soon.
I have about 6 of them going at once (in various parts of my house, office, and car!) It is as much a staple in my life as toothpaste or face moisturizer. (Of note: for many years prior to using this, I used a VERY expensive Christian Dior lip balm that could only be purchased in France. Since I could no longer make trips to France just for lip balm, I was forced to look around. I thought nothing would ever be a good enough replacement, and after trying many different products, alas, this one is.) And at $7 vs. $40 (not including airfare and a devalued dollar)? A real bargain too.
