  1. Just curious. I know that some people in the Balenciaga forum swear by it, but I haven't heard it mentioned here. Do you think it would work? It's much more easily accessible for me than Apple leather conditioner, but I don't want to ruin my bags.
     
  2. I would NOT recommend it for Marc Jacobs bags.
    They use a unique vegetable tanning process and some
    leather conditioners actually darken the color of the leather,
    especially along the corners and piping.

    Lubriderm is highly concentrated in oils. :nogood:
     
  3. This idea sends up red flags for me! If you're really looking for conditioner, apple guard is cheap and effective. I started using it due to the recommendations on this board and it really does its job.
     
  4. I agree with the rest of the posters. Apple conditioner is hands down the most tested brand on MJ. One girl even posted about how her Coach conditioner turned a white bag yellowish, so I'd be careful about what I put on my soft calf bags!
     
  5. I need to find my Apple Guard conditioner! It's in my house somewhere. Yikes.
     
  6. I haven't heard of anyone using Lubriderm on MJs.... I've used it on my bbags and have had great results, but have always used Apple Garde on my MJs. I always thought Lubriderm was preferred for bbags because it thickens up the leather a bit and helps clear out veins.... MJ doesn't have any veins or thinning or dulling of the leather, so I wouldn't have thought to use it on soft calf bags. I think Apple Garde is better for MJ overall, since it's made specifically for leather. MJ leather is durable and doesn't seem to need Lubriderm.

    if anyone is brave enough to try, let me know how it works out!
     
  7. Fair enough! I won't do it, I was just curious. I have a bottle of that kind of Lubriderm in my house already. :biggrin:

    Thanks, y'all!
     
  8. i've never even used lubriderm on my bbags. i would be way too scared to use it on my mj bags because of the oils.
