The Baratine will offer more protection, though it is not a finish, only a preparatory treatment.

Creosote substitutes had the fungicide/insecticides removed some years ago and are no longer the treatment they once were. Consider them more like a cheap oil finish.

with the Barratine, it would be better to apply it (remembering to thoroughly soak end grain and anything in contact with the ground) and once thoroughly dry to apply some kind of secondary finish over the top, which will help it to shed water. Belts and braces, especially with pallet wood which likely to be susceptible to degradation pretty quickly otherwise.

Decking oil is a cheap alternative , Keeps all my fencing in good condition and soaks in well.
