    I was extremely skeptical about this product. I purchased a cheap sectional and it was in rough condition. After the first coat of Espresso, I realized I might have made a mistake.. let me be the one to say.. TRUST THE PROCESS. A ragged old sectional is now beautiful and looks new. Attached are a photo before, a photo before the conditioner, and a photo after the conditioner. I really could not recommend this product more.. AND it got to my home in two days!

    Bought a leather chair with some wear and went on line to find a way to restore it. Found your products at half the price of others, along with confidence-inspiring videos. The results speak for themselves. Had so much fun I ordered a set for my brother in law to restore a badly worn family heirloom. Again, almost magical results. Highly recommended.

    I ordered and used the product in Espresso. Made a huge difference and blended well on my chocolate colored leather couch and chair. I did not order the clear coat, but need to do so as the color looks a bit dull when dry. I think adding clear all over will bring back the luster look. I have not noticed it rubbing off on clothes but the areas where it was applied were on the top of the back vertical cushions which are low touch areas. The reason I needed the product is because our puppy kept getting up on the top for naps and suddenly the areas where he would lay were an orange color.
    Reply from lesandre:
    Thanks for the good word. First try buffing the refinished areas with a dry rag to polish. If more luster is needed, try mixing Clear with color (a glaze) and use for a more subdued luster and blending, as Clear alone will dry with a glossy finish.
    Espresso as final product!

    I love your product! It's so easy and fun to see the results. I used a combination of Camel and Cognac on a couch and I decided to try them separately on this chair and ottoman. I ended up going with the Espresso and love the finished product!

    I was sceptical at first wondering if this work work on a used pleather ottoman that had hidden white water marks covered up with something. Followed the simple instructions and two coats restored to like new. Very impressive! I used the conditioner to seal it and match the somewhat glossy finish. Buy this product.
    Expresso WOW!

    Excellent product. Three light coats of Espresso very well covered the worn area on my favorite leather recliner. The sealer/conditioner brought the sheen back to match the remainder of the chair. Glad I found your site!

    I am very pleased with the product. I have never done anything like this so I watched the videos and read the instructions. I think it turned out great especially since I’m not a professional. Honestly, I think I could do better I just don’t want to take the time. This is for a family room in our basement. This is 3 coats of espresso and 2 or 3 coats of conditioning sealer. It cost around $120 for both couches and I have quite a bit of product left.

    Picked up two orange colored leather pieces (couch/sofa) at a thrift store, dyed them espresso color, they look amazing, everyone that sees them can't believe the transition. It took three coats (a 16 and 8oz bottle) to complete the job. I watched every video on Youtube I could find and was not sure how things were going to turn out, but finally took a chance, it was totally worth it. Now we are looking for another leather piece to restore. Super happy with the product.

    Not bad. I found all the preparation work a bit drying to the leather. My current leather recliners had a lot of highs and lows with a mixture of colors. I probably should have purchased more than one color to maintain the modeling effect I had before I did the treatment. This product came out more of a solid color (could be user error, but I watched all of the videos and read the instructions) which honestly I am not a huge fan of. That said, the seat part of my chair really needed some attention and it looks amazing (if you didn't see the original condition). I have tried more thicker products from a big online retailer. Last week, I did one chair in each product and am interested in seeing which one lasts longer. The other brand lasted a few months before needing touching up...it is too early to really assess the longevity, but I have my fingers crossed.
    Reply from lesandre:
    Alcohol can be drying but is necessary to strip off all the slime of life (conditioners, body oil, last night's Chinese takeout). Our colors are very pigment-rich, which is why you can color change with them. Check out this article and video demonstrating mottling / distressing techniques. We also offer an evaluation service to ensure the best results for customers. This $10 cost is redeemable with a purchase of product. Curious to know if the other product is a urethane or acrylic. The urethane may initially be more durable but may prove to be a bigger mess down the road.

    I have to admit, I was skeptical I would find any product to save our tufted leather ottoman. With nothing to lose, and after a bit of research, I thankfully stumbled across Rub N Restore.

    In total I spent about 3 hours restoring our worn out friend, and when I asked my wife to see the results, she didn’t believe it was the same piece of furniture!

    Absolutely amazing product and I am now a true believer.

I’ve never bothered to write a company I bought anything from before but I am just pleased on how my chairs turned out I thought you should know. The service was great too!

    Used on a top grain leather sofa of the non-absorbent variety. Easy to mix colors and blend clear finish for desired tone and sheen. I was matching a dull-satin-not-quite-matte-ish. Easier than I thought it would be. Could be because the instructions provided were great. All the info you need.

    If you're thinking "well I'm not good at this type of stuff".... Doesn't matter. Its pretty forgiving Just buy it. I'm reasonably certain you wouldn't regret it.

    Let me start by saying I never leave reviews... I found this product by doing a search on Google. Our leather set was 14 years old and as you can see by the pictures it looked every bit its age! Still, I was extremely skeptical and terrified I would ruin our furniture. However, After reading the reviews and seeing the pictures I decided to give it a shot. What I found after using this product still amazes me! I bought the 16 ounce bottle in Espresso and the clean and prep. I have about 1/4 of the bottle left! So glad I took a leap of faith!!!

    One other comment... when I called the company to ask a question an actual person picked up on the 3rd ring and answered all of my questions thoroughly and gave me the confidence to begin my project. A million thanks!!!

    I purchased this chair from Crate and Barrel almost 15 years ago. It was originally a caramel brown but got very faded and worn over the years. I tried a leather conditioner but it didn't make much of a difference. So glad I found rub n restore. I love the rich chocolate brown color - I used espresso - 2 coats, with a bit of the clear coat. It took me about 2 hours. Huge transformation.

    I was skeptical upon reading reviews and when I purchased this product as it sounded way too good to be true. Our couch is 20 years old and besides the blue color that we hate, is in fantastic shape. They just don’t make couches like this anymore. The leather is such high quality and after seeing our friends fork over upwards of 10k for a new leather couch only for it to wear and break down within a few years, we knew we had to give this a shot. I would recommend to anyone in our position. If you love your couch but are tired of the color, this is the product to buy.

    Not able to offer a review as haven't used the products yet. However, I would like to warn anyone who lives in the UK and who orders these products that there is a massive VAT bill to pay upon delivery. I had not expected it and would not have bought these products had I known how expensive this extra bill would be. The one star is for the UK VAT bill not the, as yet unused, products.

    We are sorry to hear of this, which is why our shipping info page encourages international customers to check with their country's customs office to determine how much may be assessed. Despite this expense, we're certain you'll find the investment well worth the final result and ultimately less costly than reupholstery or replacement.
