No, but one persons greasiness may be another persons shine. Since I have joined this community I have marveled at the 'dipped in liquid glass' look of some of the shells. I now have that on just about all of my shells and none of them feel tacky to the touch or leave any residue on my hand when I touch them.
I almost returned my shell walnut Dalton's because of the dullness of the shell. I ultimately decided to keep them because any shell boot outside of color 8 is difficult to come across. I spent considerable time brushing and brushing and brushing. They got a little better but I still didn't love the look. After 10 minutes with saphir cream I am absolutely ecstatic about how they look and am hoping for inclimate weather so I can wear them.
Personal preference I'm sure but I am quite pleased with the results.
