Does anyone have experience of using these products from LLT ?

There seems to be two distinct camps on the detailing forums. One advocating conditioners such as Gliptone the other saying they (conditioners) are ineffective, harmful even and promoting cleaners and protectants such as LLT products.

I have not heard of that, interesting. When I was in the RR club he had lectures from leather experts, and the grease from hands etc was considered to be the most harmful, I know that leather has moved on a long way since then,but I wish I knew what was the best thing to use,if anything

Have you spoken to your re-trimmer about the sort of product they would recommend? Leather needs 'feeding' failure to do this will result in cracking, stretching, distortion and eventual breakdown - long after you have sold your car though. I would suggest avoiding the 'snake oil' products that lay claim to doing everything needed instead check out Pittard's even calling them might just be worthwhile although they are not an automotive leather supplier they do have a good reputation in the leather trade as a tanner, supplier and technical support.

Trimmer uses Meguires Gold for a matt finish or Autoglym for a sheen finish. I have used Gliptone in the past, great smell and it doesn't change the finish.

Personally I would stick with what you know, certainly on that excellent new interior.
