Question Seeking feedback on Leather Conditioners

I have been researching various leather conditioning products on the internet recently. I have been using Leather Therapy Restorer & Conditioner. However, I recently used it on a new (used) dressage saddle that I just purchased and found that it left the leather with a tacky & cloudy finish. It seems that two very popular leather conditioners these days are Leather Honey Leather Conditioner and Antares Leather Conditioner. Has anyone had any experience, positive or negative, with these two products for conditioning and softening leather horse tack? I could only find the Antares product at SmartPak.com and they have the product on back order. The website indicates that they don't expect another shipment until mid-March of 2013. So, if you recommend that product, I would appreciate knowing if there are any other sources of purchase other than SmartPak. Thanks!

I second the Effax. Very effective. I prefer the Passier Lederbalsam over it though, because I just prefer the smell. I think the two perform about equally, I just like the aromatherapy effect I get while applying the Lederbalsam. With both the Effax and Lederbalsam, I? Rub it in with my fingertips and hands, then let it sit for 24 hours before wiping off the excess and buffing it out. The leather tends to be a little tacky for the first ride, then it's good.
