A good non-shiny leather cleaner?

Anyone have recommendations for a good leather cleaner and protectant that doesn't leave a nasty shine? I've looked at products from AMMO and The Chemical Guys, but I'm hesitant to spend the money as I've had zero experience with either product. I've used off the shelf cleaners and protectants before on my V70R's full leather interior, but they all left a slick finish which I can't stand.

I'm a fan of Griots, it's not shiny and I've been using them for over 15years.

This stuff is amazing!

Best find I have made for maintenance. There are better choices if you need conditioning.

Colourlock has good leather care products and I recommend their brush with whatever cleaner you choose. Carpro Inside is powerful if you have tough stains or dye transfer on light leather. Can also be diluted for milder cleaning. I always give seats a final wipe with a damp microfiber to remove any cleaning residue and leave the finish looking factory matte. If you like to dress your leather I recommend carpro perl diluted 1:5, matte finish as long as you dont over apply and level any high spots and allow a couple hours to cure. For very light soiling I will just give the interior a wipe down the ONR at the standard dilution. Meguirs quick interior detailer is good for light soiling, leaves no residue behind and is cheap at any parts store.

This topic has been discussed at length on many VAG forums and Leatherique seems to be the popular vote when it come to leather care. It may be considered more of a conditioner/rejuvenator vs a cleaner but regardless.....great results.

^^^ We've tried just about everything on the market - Griots has done okay - but nothing has ever topped leatherique - we even used it to clean the 'leatherette' in the Jetta wagen and it's about 150% better than before just because of how well it picks up the grime. Does have some shine right off - but that dulls on down and the leather feels amazing.

My vote is Chemical Guys, this stuff is amazing and it seems to last forever, only takes a bit to clean and condition an entire leather interior.
