Leather Care..what am I doing wrong?

I used the Leatherique 2 bottle kit exactly as described. The rejuvinator oil that was supposed to "lift away the dirt". then the conditioner. I was not overwhelmed with the results, either by the cleaning process, or by the supposed suppleness. I then repeated two additional times, used a soft bristle brush assuming that would make a difference. left the car indirectly in sun with windows closed to heat up the process. I am still not thrilled. Am I better off with a cream or different product? I doing something wrong? This is a 1997 S420 with 72,000 miles.

I just used Leatherique myself and it is not a one time affair if you have older leather that's not been maintained. I thought my leather was pretty clean (its cream coloured to boot) until the first time I used Leatherique. I was actually a bit horrified at what came up after it has been sitting for a bit. I cleaned it with the pristine clean - okay it looked a little better and the leather was a bit softer. Followed up the following weekend with another round of conditioning and cleaning- looked even better and the leather was a bit more softer. Leatherique does recommend 2-3 sessions so I will follow up with a third session.
I have notice a definite improvement in the colour and softness of the leather. I could be wrong here but I don't think the leather, at least in the older mercedes, is that soft to begin with.
