If your car is less than ~3 years old or ~30,000 miles, you don't need leather conditioner. Most leather comes with a topcoat (think like a clear coat) to protect the leather and seal in the dye. Conditioner does absolutely nothing, except maybe UV protection, and will sit on the surface and attract dirt, dust, etc. which then acts like sand paper... Easiest way to tell if your topcoat is worn down is if rubbing the cleaned leather with a damp white cloth transfers dye to the cloth.
New leather only needs to be kept clean, and if you want to go above and beyond, use a friction reducer that also essentially replenishes the topcoat for a brief period of time.
Exactly! All this leather conditioner crap is bs on a new car, your leather is clear coated and that junk does nothing. What does your owners manual say to use to clean your leather? A damp cloth and that a leather conditioner is not required to maintain original condition.
I used Lexol #2 Conditioner a few times. It does a nice job, but is a pita to remove after application. Directions say to wipe surfaces clean with microfiber cloth after application, only problem is the cloth constantly sticks to the leather, and rolls over on itself, making product removal and buffing a patience testing exercise. Do the others your guys mention above have this issue?
