    Absolutely my favorite!!
    I tried Tobacco at first, but it was a bit too dark & reddish for me. I put on Cognac instead all over my leather sectional and it is amazing!! I have two dogs and it is holding up fabulously. I love it!

    Incredible products it really does work!
    Amazing product! It has delayed the inevitable for an additional 4 years on our 22 year old leather sofa and chairs. My wife wasn't happy when I did the first repair because she wanted new furniture but she even said, the furniture looks so much better. I took a lot of jokes from my kids about painting the furniture but none of the color rubs off on your clothes like everyone said it would. It still looks great but the leather has thinned to a point that I couldn't keep up with the dogs nails so we just ordered a new leather couch and chairs.

Unfortunately it won't be delivered for another 4 or 5 months so I'm ordering one more time this miracle product. I told my wife we might be able to sell the furniture for more than we paid for it when I get done with my last restoration. The team at RubNRestore are also very helpful with color selection and tips and trick to restore your furniture. Placing my order now :)

    I purchased the 8oz cognac, 4 oz tobacco, and 4 oz sealer to refinish a beautiful but older Bernhardt sofa that my daughter gave my dad. After procrastinating for a couple months🤦🏼‍♀️, I tackled what I thought would be a hard job, even though I watched all the videos. To my delight, 2 hours later, the sofa looks great! I even did a few repairs on cat scratches as recommended, but in the end, the Rubnrestore camouflages them perfectly. I’m currently waiting for everything to dry well, then will add a 2nd coat to just a few of the more worn areas. Can’t believe how simple this process is!

    Thank you!
    This was an excellent product for restoring my leather sofa. I am Beyond happy with it. There is no other product that can match up with your company. I’m am thinking about doing the whole sofa in the Cognac color. It’s such a beautiful color.
    I’m happy that I found you. Thanks for saving my sofa.

    I’m am so impressed with this product. I received it yesterday and couldn’t wait to apply it to my sofa. I tried everything to hide the spot and nothing worked out until I found this product, I didn’t do the whole sofa because I only ordered the 2oz to cover a stain I messed up. I then applied it to both arms of my sofa. I’m loving this two tone look. This product is amazing

    EXCEPTIONAL
    I complimented you after the 1st time I used your product (Slate), and I just wanted to compliment you again. I believe this is the 3rd color (Cognac) that I've used. I may end up using a slightly lighter color on this project (Camel) after all, but that is independent of the quality & ease of use of the product . . . EXCEPTIONAL!

    Its everything it claims
    I am a researcher so I looked into all the ways to diy a leather couch restore. Im so glad I chose this product. It was truly “easy” (definitely time and elbow grease but so straight forward) and I am still amazed at the results! I have a brand new couch! And I’m thrilled to have this in standby for the inevitable kid touch ups.

    Would use this product again!
    This stuff is just amazing! When moving into my first home, I was given some old, dark purple leather couches. Of course I took them (they were free!), but I honestly thought they were ugly. I did a little research and found this product from Rub and Restore. I was nervous to order because of the price and because I had no idea how the couches would turn out. Well, they turned out BEAUTIFUL! It took 4 coats on each coat (an hour a coat/couch). The couches are a pretty brown (a much more modern look).

    Wine to Cognac!
    I read all the reviews, and while nervous, decided to go for it! I could not be happier with the updated look of my pair of leather chairs that went from an outdated wine color to a trendy cognac color. My biggest critics, the kids, loved the transformation! Great customer service too!

    I only had to use one coat of the cognac base color to make my couch look new again and it was so easy to apply. I am truly amazed.

    Amazing!
    Amazing product! I used rub n’ restore on a recliner that was old and faded. I’m so glad we didn’t get rid of the chair and took a chance to restore it. It worked wonderfully!

    Color did not match. Customer Sevice was not helpful.
    Reply from lesandre:
    Colors may have the same name but vary among manufacturers. Our Cognac is described as a golden butterscotch. We offer a myriad of services to help in selecting color. We also have a generous exchange policy (try exchanging open paint with Home Depot and see how that customer service suits you). We also promptly responded to your email with this information and never received a reply. Perhaps it went to spam. Customers who leave negative reviews rather than try to troubleshoot are not suited to DIY projects such as these.

    Treat it like PAINT
    It does a great job, but I think it was a HUGE mistake to use a sponge. I am an artist and have a lot of experience with paints and painting. The sponge soaked up too much product, dried on the sponge, and no matter how quickly I worked it just was bad. I even had a water spray bottle to mist it but I wasted a great deal of product, which should have been on my chair instead of my sponge. With that said, I will say the paint is a highly pigmented water base paint. When I purchased this, my impression was to RUB it on, like you would with shoe polish.

With that said, I will say the paint is a highly pigmented water base paint. When I purchased this, my impression was to RUB it on, like you would with shoe polish. I think it is much better to use a foam brush, keep several on hand because it will dry on it no matter how fast you work, although the spray bottle helped. I felt it would have turned out better if I had originally applied it like a thin paint, done small areas at a time, soak the foam brush every 15 minutes, and do several thin layers. You don't need to rub this on, you need to paint it on. I have severe carpal tunnel, so if you have this, or arthritis, then you best work in small batches with a foam brush. I even used an actual paint brush to paint around the brass tacs. It is a great product, but treat it like a paint, rather than like a leather polish that you rub into leather.

    Works well
    I just finished first try, noticed imperfections will do again. As it claims, leather doesn’t feel dry.. darker than expected.. really liked original color however this does cover up all the stains..will keep going.. also forgot to order glaze.. this is without the clear Prep& Finish

    Great product
    Product worked excellent!! Only prob was I ran out and had to order another bottle to finish a couple more coats. I ordered the 8oz bottle originally and probably need another 2oz to finish. But I am ok with ordering another due to the amazing finish on my chair!!

    Cognac
    I attempted to go from a dark color to light, and overall I’m very impressed. It took me about 4 coats. I bought the 8 oz bottle and there’s about 1/3 leftover, which will be useful if it needs a touch up eventually.
