I've had my black pebbled Rockie since August 2012. Although it has not been worn a lot, it was beginning to look a little tired. Actually, it always had a little bit of a patina-like finish. I have now treated my Rockie two nights in a row with Apple conditioner. The bag just sucked this stuff up. Seriously, I'm super happy with the results and I highly recommend. The leather looks so lovely now. Thoughts I'd share this good news with everyone.
