Chamberlain's Leather Care Liniment No. 1 {Review} #ad

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.
I love the smell and feel of leather. Whether it's a pair of shoes, a jacket, a purse, or my home office chair, I know that with proper care, it's something I can enjoy for years. The only thing that's not so great about leather, in my opinion, is that I can't just toss it in the laundry when it needs cleaning.

Recently, I tried a new cleaning and conditioning product for leather. Chamberlain's Leather Care Liniment No. 1 comes in an 8 oz bottle that reminds me of a drinking flask. The product is a water-based and can be used as a cleaner and conditioner. It comes with an applicator pad, sort of a sponge covered in soft white fabric. It is easy to use: pour a little on the applicator and rub into leather. As recommended, first I cleaned the leather with a damp cloth. The liniment was rather watery in consistency, so I had to be careful not to pour too much onto the applicator. I was a little surprised to see extra dirt on the applicator after I used it - clearly, a wipe with a damp cloth does not remove everything I think it does.

The last step was to buff gently after a brief drying time. I did as instructed, then left it alone for a while. The liniment left my leather looking nice and "refreshed", without the shiny oily residue that I've noticed with some other products. There is a pleasant almond-y scent that disappears after a few hours. The one thing I did not like was the slightly sticky feeling of the leather in some places - perhaps I used too much? Time will tell.

Chamberlain's Leather Care Liniment No. 1 is made from natural oils and conditioners and can be used on leather clothing, bags, auto interiors, furniture and more. You can find it online at, along with other leather-pampering products. Check out their blog for some handy leather care tips.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

    Both of my girls ride and we have an abundance of saddles, girths, boots, etc. that all need to be cared for. I'd love to try this!

    I have some leather items that I need to take care of and this leather ointment sounds very good. I need to get some and see how it works on my leather jacket and purse.

    I have never heard of this product but would like to try it out. I like that it's made of natural oils but a little afraid to try if it might leave items sticky in places.
