Who doesn’t love a pair of real leather, soft, comfy shoes, leather jacket or hand bag? I bet most of us do. Leather products are still perceived as luxury and who doesn’t love a little bit of luxury? But in order to fully enjoy our beautiful posh and luxurious leather items we actually have to care of them – clothes, shoes, accessories or even your leather chair or sofa, they all need love and attention from time to time. Keeping them clean and well-conditioned will assure that they look perfect for far longer.
I personally adore leather, especially when it comes to my shoes… but hey I just love all shoes… full stop.
Anyway… I was given a bundle of Chambers leather care product to test ride. Chambers leather care range is packed with natural wholesome ingredients. They do not use silicone or other synthetic additives; the ingredients are natural and are of the highest, cosmetic grade. They may not be the cheapest ones on the block but they are for sure the most natural ones.
I was actually a little cheeky when it came to testing my Chambers leather care product; I enrolled the help of my dad… I have to admit it was a brilliant move. Dad (who exhibits mild OCD tendencies) spent almost the entire day “playing” with his new toys and cleaning all the leather items he could get his hands on… oh well I am just glad I could provide him with all that entertainment 🙂
The selection of Chambers leather care product was as follows:
- Chambers Natural Foaming Leather Cleaner
- Chambers Leather Balsam which can be purchase in unscented, vanilla and lavender
- Chambers Boots Waterproofer
Brilliant and easy to use cleaner which according to my dad “actually works and removes stains with ease”. The results are visible immediately and it leaves any surface clean, shiny and soft. Dad used it on their sofas and noticed there was a slight problem with stickiness… evidently the sofa didn’t dry out as quick as expected (which knowing dad most likely means now, this instance) but as it ended up no one performed any test on the back of the sofa as is clearly advised on the packaging… well you live and learn every day. Despite the slight delay with the sofa being ready for use again dad was very pleased with the results and will definitely use it again… and again… and then almost certainly again.
I picked my balsam in the unscented version as I wasn’t sure what would we use it for. I didn’t really want Marks bike leathers to smell of lavender (despite all the potential for lolz)… but seriously I personally wouldn’t mind it but I am not so sure Mark would be happy about this fragrant addition. So… balm… just like foaming cleaner it is easy to use and extremely effective. The formula based on beeswax and coconut oil absorbs very quickly making the whole process of application a pure pleasure. It gives a lovely sheen to your leather and plenty of additional softness.
This is by far my Dads favourite product. He had so much fun using it that he even waterproofed his slippers and then splashed some water on them to test the effect. The waterproofer looks like an old school shoe polish and you actually apply it in exactly the same way; the only difference is you need a source of heat to make it work (a hairdryer works just fine). So you clean your shoes, then condition them and finally pop some waterproofer on them and ta-da you have 100% totally water proof shoes… the water drops bounce of them just like on a good Gore-Tex jacket for example or even our Bunks’ coat.
In all honesty I think that Chambers have created a fantastic selection of products. Not only are they 100% natural but also work just as they state on the packaging, a refreshing change imho.
