Effax Leather Balsam is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 142.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the feeling Great consistency, does not leave a sticky residue.
Date published: 2021-01-05
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everything I needed at an affordable price! I bought this product for students to utilize after cleaning lesson tack. The high quality balm at an economical price point can’t be beat! Will definitely be getting again.
Date published: 2020-09-12
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome, strong smell This is the first leather product I’ve used that I feel really absorbs into and conditions the leather. I use it on my field boots and my new saddle to help break it in. A little goes a surprisingly long way. I really like this product. The only thing is the smell is quite strong, but not unpleasant. My new saddle smells like this product instead of leather now, and my hands smell like it for a day after using it. Would give it 4 stars because of the strength of the smell, but I like the product so much I still give it 5 stars.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best cleaner! This cleans and conditions my tack really well. It smells good as well and no gross residue is left behind
Date published: 2020-03-11
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product First started using this, when my saddle filter recommended it. Love the smell of the product. Keeps my tack conditioned and looking good.
Date published: 2020-02-17
Rated 5 out of 5 by from On par with expensive conditioners I got this to replace the not so easily accessible CWD or Antares conditioner that I always run out of, and I'm happy that I gave it a try! It really conditions my tack nicely and it leaves a nice finish. I will continue to buy this vs the more expensive stuff.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Effax Leather Balsam Great product! Makes my leather soft and supple and not greasy! Love this balm!!!!
Date published: 2019-12-25
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite Conditioner This is by far my favorite conditioner. Doesn't leave a film and leaves the saddle feeling adequately conditioned. Will continue to purchase along with the Leather Combi and Glycerine!
Date published: 2019-12-08
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Productb I use this on tack and on my leather tall boots! It works wonders towards cleaning and suppling the leather. It can get a little greasy on your hands, but it’s annoying enough that I wouldn’t get this again. Will definitely be buying more!
Date published: 2019-11-19
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great! if I'm being honest, the tack at my barn kinda sucks. they have some stuff there for us to clean our tack but its not the best. I finally decided to buy my own cleaner and conditioner and this is definently much much better than what I was using before. it shined my saddle so well I hardly recognised it! I also used this on my bridle but I wouldnt recomend using this on the reins because it made them considerably more slippery, even though I let it soak in overnight. I would recomend this to anyone who wants some extra protection and shine on their tack, it's perfect for shows too!
Date published: 2019-11-18
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great! Shines leather right up and leaves it nice and conditioned. Smells good too!
Date published: 2019-11-03
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very easy to put on! I used this on my tall boots and it shined them up nicely and brought them back to life. Absolutely love this product! Super easy to apply, I just used a soft towel and rubbed it into my boots.
Date published: 2019-08-21
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best I only use this on my saddle. It’s a great product
Date published: 2019-08-16
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works beautifully! I'm super bad about Cleaning my tack because I have sooo much... Spent 17 hours on a rainy day cleaning 4 saddles, 6 pairs of boots and a huge tote full of bridles and everything came out so soft! It took half of the large size but it worked beautifully!
Date published: 2019-05-10
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the softness it adds to my leather I have really loved how the Effax Leather Balsam has added softness and flexibility back to my tack. I clean my tack regularly and began added this after I clean, and together it has brought my tack back to that nice new feeling (yet softer!). I will buy this again.
Date published: 2018-10-25
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love Effax makes the best cleaning and conditioning products ever. Not only does it smell lovely, but it leave tack buttery soft without leaving any gross residue. I’m an Effax user for life!
Date published: 2018-10-19
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great! I've been using this conditioner for close to 10 years. It works great and doesn't leave your tack greasy.
Date published: 2018-09-11
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best The best leather cream ever. Love the smell, love the feel. Be sure to buff after it dries or it can get tacky. ( sometimes a good thing)
Date published: 2018-07-04
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product Love this product. Keeps tack supple and no stickiness. Recommend highly.
Date published: 2018-06-22
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product for leather care. I love this stuff. I was given a sample just over a year ago. A little goes a long way! I have used it on saddles, purses, shoes just about everything. It works really well and smells great. I picked up a used (and tired) Stubben at a consignment sale. With a good dose of this Effax, that Stubben has been restored and has become my favorite saddle. This is easy enough to use that I was able to literally put a final polish on my daughters boots as I walked and she rode to the show ring. A great product.
Date published: 2018-06-05
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful conditioner Love this conditioner for my saddle, bridle, halters, boots, etc. Smells wonderful, makes my hands soft, and makes my tack feel amazing.
Date published: 2018-06-01
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite leather conditioner I’ve been using effax for close to a year; it really brings stiff leather back to life!
Date published: 2018-05-22
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing product! I put this leather balsam on my half chaps and my saddle. It kept me on and sticking to my saddle during my mares bucking fits! I’ll definitely buy more of this!
Date published: 2018-05-01
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Softens and conditions I have used this product for years. Easy to use never greasy.
Date published: 2018-03-03
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great stuff Have been using this conditioner for years. Absolutely love how it keeps my leather in like new condition and water resistant. It doesn’t make the leather “slimy” as long as you don’t use too much, a little goes a long way!
Date published: 2018-02-26
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Won't use anything else I've been using Leder Balsam for years, and while I often try new products, I always come back to it. It's the only thing I will put on my (very expensive) saddles, and I use it on anything leather. It rehabs sad looking leather really well, and leaves things soft, pliable, and it smells great too!
Date published: 2018-01-31
Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite saddle oil! I've tried a lot of conditioners on my beloved Devoucoux, but this is my favorite! It's light enough to fully absorb and not leave a residue, but thick enough to leave it nice and grippy!
Date published: 2017-12-20
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic stuff I've used the Effax balm for years on my tack. Keeps the leather soft, overcomes stiffness (for less used tack) and has a great fragrance and feel. I put it on with a tack sponge then work it in with my fingers. Feels great on tack and hands! My first pot has lasted for years.
Date published: 2017-11-18
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great conditioner for the price I've been using this product for manyyy years and love it. It's very nourishing to the leather and leaves a nice sheen. Can leave a sticky feeling to the leather if applied too thickly or not left to soak in long enough so if that's something you don't like, stay away. The smell is average for a product like this. I've tried many high end conditioners that cost over double this product and I believe they work the same. I keep buying more of this product because it's that good!
Date published: 2017-11-14
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite leather cleaning product It's the only product my riders use on all their schooling and show tack.
