Yes, the leather looks way too shiny after these treatments and nowhere close to OEM. Now granted improvements are marked but it does not get the look many desire.

Everything is indeed somewhat abrasive, but that doesn't mean it's ok to use a Magic Eraser to clean leather nor a sanding disk to wash a car.
That's basically a false dilemma. A much better analogy might be magic eraser vs. a gentle pad on an orbital with a super fine polish. Both are technically abrasive. If both are used infrequently there is probably nothing wrong with either.
