Renovateur has the same effect although more slightly so. It is said to moisturize, protect and renew.
It does the renewing part by removing some excess polish so even though it is protecting and moisturizing I wouldn't put it on brand new shoes before wearing. My tip is to just make sure you don't expose new shoes to inclement weather until they're polished a couple of times (with regular cream polish that is).
But since it is more experience-based than fact-based this discussion could go on forever and this probably belongs in a regular shoe care thread, so let's get back to the regular museum calf discussion. :)
