Through all of my experimentation I think it is largely an overrated concept.

I have a leather couch. I've conditioned it many times with Bick 4. It is always more trouble than its worth.I had to verify on my Amazon purchase list. Same 16oz Bick4 container since 2016 (Sept.), and I have about 1/3 of the bottle left. Talk about spot conditioning .
My brushes on the other hand look like Sasquatch brushed his teeth with them from the overuse.
Ive heard moisturizing is good for the skin, but goodness me this here seems a rather messy undertaking.Nah, they make a spray version for larger applications. I spray it all over myself and then flip, flop, and squirm all over the couch while watching Netflix. Quite a workout.
I'm not sure about the Lexol. Meaning, my results have been unsatisfactory. Anytime I have used the Lexol there was always a residue on the surface which resulted in a cloudy appearance. Even when I used next to nothing.Nothing wrong with Lexol.
I've used Lexol for many years and I have never experienced any residue. The Bick4 does leave a slight wax residue esp. if it is overused. But any neutral shoe cream will do the same. Of all the conditioners out there Bick4 comes the closest to living up to its claims that it will not darken leather...in my experience.I'm not sure about the Lexol.

I've never had that happen with the Bick. Even my father's preferred Venetian shoe cream yields better results for me. That old man of mines has been using that stuff for what seems like decades on his shoes. Oddly, without shoe cream or wax, and the VSC his shoes still look solid . Has me thinking, I overpay for my shoe care products.
In any case, I'd agree with @j ingevaldsson, shoe cream (partial towards Burgols) and minimal spot usage of conditioner seems to produce effective long-term positive results.
