A Review on Kiwi Leather Lotion
One of the best parts of designer handbags and accessories is the luxurious leathers they come in. And of course with high quality leather, comes high maitenance. But the good news is that there are plenty of great leather products out there that will help prevent any damage to your bags, including Kiwi Leather Lotion. For specific product information, here is the official description of what this formula is all about:
KIWI Leather Lotion is formulated to gently clean as it replenishes the oils for all finished leathers. After use, KIWI Leather Lotion leaves behind a soft lustre. KIWI Leather Lotion keeps leather articles looking new longer, and helps prevent leather from dying and cracking.
So, does Kiwi’s product really live up to what it says? Well, the other day I picked up a bottle from my local Wal-Mart. I decided that I would give it a try on the cow hide of my LV Speedy, with the intention of conditioning and darkening the leather handles and trim. At first I was a bit nervous to try it because there is no going back if it were to mess up my bag. With that said, I decided to test a spot on the inside of my bag because it really wouldn’t matter if something “went wrong” since no one sees the interior. I put a small drop on a peper towel, and worked it gently into the leather. The tester came out so well, that I felt confident enough to do ALL of the leather. So I did.
And what were the results? The leather is amazing after using this. It darkened to a nice honey shade, and any little cracks or wrinkles are completely hydrated now. I was able to acheive what I wanted, which was a darker patina and conditioned leather. And I couldn’t be more satisfied with this product. I am even going to use it on my other leather bags because I know they will turn out great!
