Never use Armor All!

A lot of people here use 303 on their vinyl tops and interior leather. I has a lot of protectants that help prevent the leather or vinyl form drying out and getting sun damaged. 303 won't give that glossy shine to anything.

I use Murphy's Oil Soap on everything. It does not protect, but it gives the leather a wet shine for months and makes my vinyl top look new for weeks.

I use Meguiars leather wipes and my leather looks great.

303 is not meant for making an "almost wet" looking shine like this guy wants on his leather. 303 does preserve vinyl and leather for an eternity, I've used it for nearly 20 years.

Sven is right, if your stuff is already dull, faded, or worn out then you'll need to re-create the shine that's missing by applying your pick of products over and over again.

i also use murphy's oil soap and it works wonders! Leaves my vinyl top looking shiny between washes :)

I use blue magic leather cleaner and conditioner. I apply it once every 2 weeks. about once every week in the winter. (my leather always has been super super dry).
NEVER use armor all! when you stop using it, whatever you put it on will start falling apart (personal experience).
