Another Lexol user here. You might need a couple treatments of the conditioner if its been a while.

KR Leather

I use Lexol,
A couple of things you should know about your leather
1. KR leather is not sealed. So it will absorb what you put on it. Lareit and Harley leather is sealed, and is there for stain resistant.

2. Make sure you use a test area

3. You must wait for your leather to dry before making a dession. Depending on weather this could take a while.

4. The best way I found to use Lexon is to rub it in with my hand. This gets it deeper into the leather. Do a small area, then lightly dry that section and move on.

5. You could have to do it more then once to bring out the color of the leather

One thing I found that Totally wrecks havoc on the seats is sweat.
I never wear shorts to much in the summer, but when I did, the sweat from my legs discolored the leather. Made it a very dark color, only where my legs were.
Now, when I look at other peoples trucks , and see the dark color of the seats, it kinda gross' me out.
By the way...cleaning the seats again with a weak, mild soap/water mix, will remove the stains. Then after the seats dry off, I put on the Latex gloves, and use my hands to apply the "KingRanch" conditioner. This way, you don't scratch the seats with your finger nails, and the conditioner goes into the seats, not your hands. (And I love the way it smells)

I have been using Bick 4 . It is usually right next to the Lexon at places such as Cavenders . "Bick 4" seems to conditon the leather , without changing the color or appearence of my seats. All scratches are easily removed and the leather feel's like silk when I am finished. I have never tried Lexon which seems to be the most popular simply because currently there is no reason too.
