    Renovator tends to take off more polish than other conditioners I have used. I would imagine that applying a little bit of black polish would be the answer. I would think it would be best to use wax rather than cream.

    A massive thank you to Stefan and Skomaker Dagestad here in Norway which offer above and beyond customer service. If I now only can manage to make a decision on leather color and type a pair of Galways MTO will be ordered next.

    I wouldn't class it as a conditioner, it's far too strong a product to routinely use on leather with any kind of manmade patina as it will act as a cleaning agent.

    It's even more pronounced an effect on some polished leathers, as in corrected ones, and can actually strip off the colour wholesale and with very little effort.

    There's been a few discussions on this in the shoe care thread and there are more informed voices there than me. But I know from my own experience that renovateur should be used very sparingly and more as a cleaning agent than a conditioner.

    Yeah, I once was an Renovator junky myself. However not long after swearing by it, I pretty quickly started using something else. The amount of polish it removed wasn't the only issue. It truly seemed to leave my shoes noticeably drier. This was particularly noticeable on my cordovan shoes.

    +1 Renovateur left my shell shoes dry as well. I started using the Neutral Cordovan cream instead.

    I bought some Saphir Neutral cream polish (for calf) to use on my calf shoes instead of Renovateur. I still haven't tried it. Will that condition enough to not have to use a separate conditioner? If it doesn't...I'm not quite sure what the purpose of it is! haha.

    One thing it can be fantastic for is when you want to do a quick restoration job on old shoes, although always test somewhere outta site first...acts very much like a super-strength neutral shoe cream in some ways...
