Carr & Day & Martin
Belvoir Leather Balsam
Tack Room

For Sale on eBay

Manufacturer: Carr & Day & Martin
Model: Belvoir Leather Balsam
Category: Tack Room

Purchase: I purchased this item for approximately $16 at Equine Affaire in Massachusetts, along with Belvoir Leather C;leaner. I was on the hunt for my first saddle and needed things to look after it when I found it (which I did, two months later.)

Likes: I like this item because it really conditions the leather and leaves it having a soft shine. I used this on both sides of the leather whenever possible, and within days my saddle was broken in, soft, and supple. Also, the Leather Balsam has a nice beeswax scent. It isn't overpowering or strong, but it does make your saddle smell nice. Oh, and my dad restored his old, cracking leather jacket with this. Belvoir Leather Balsam also comes with a sponge. Finally, this product is a good buy because he store I bought it from provided me with a short booklet on how to care for leather. It also told what to do if your leather becomes dry or cracked, or any other condition.

Dislikes: This product, like all oils, darkens your leather. It takes a few minutes to soak in, and yo really have to be careful to keep the pressure even otherwise you get dark patches. Other than that, I have no complaints.

Quality: The product is of a high quality. The container holds up to being dropped, and the sponge is soft and supple.

Summary: This stuff works well. It smells nice, and really conditions your leather, no matter what its condition is. The only downside is that it darkens your leather (which can be a good thing sometimes, but...)
