    Default CHANel bag pocket turned dry and matte!

    Hello, I would like to have the back pocket of my black chanel lambskin bag restored. I put on some oil with wax on it to buff off some scratches. This turned out to be a big mistake since it turned matte and lost all of its shine. I then tried to restore the bag by putting on leather conditioner, oil and tried redying it because I thought it would help. The dye turned out to be a bluish black which didn't match the rest of the bag, so I tried to get the dye out by scrubbing the bag with a toothbrush and some mild face cleanser, a lot of color came out and I was afraid that I might have rubbed some of its original color out since it started to turn kind of light. I stopped and let it dry, and then tried to put on a different kind of black leather conditioner, which didn't help either. I am now left with a shiny chanel bag, that has a matte back pocket and I don't know what to do. Can you help me by giving my instruction.
