    I recently got hold of a couple of bottles on a trip to Italy and realised afterwarfs that I'm not absolutely sure how to use it (and what for if I'm honest). I have both shell and calf shoes. Thanks.

    I use it to clean and condition calfskin shoes. It's a nice alternative to Saphir Renovateur.

    Quick update on the Crema Alpina. WOW!!! Great on calf yes but I also tried a thin rubbed coating on my Vass cigar shells, left them for an hour and then a quick buff with a soft cloth. They look incredible, I'm shocked. I don't plan on doing this often but as a yearly treatment I think it might appropriate. See below for yourselves ( sorry no before photo as I didnt expect much change)
