So I may buy mink oil someday I think and use the conditioner on top of the mink oil.
I understand both do. However, some users on here suggest they do not make the boots water resistant only help the boots. See above posts about using Obenauf LP. That seems to be the best option for preserving the life of the leather. Not just on this thread, or this website, on several websites.
