How many did you give this treatment to?

If not too many, and remembering that pencil erasers (which we call rubbers in the UK) are often open textured when new, but get that shiny covering with age and use, I suggest you try handling them a lot, and the grease from human skin seems to do the job.

Rub them all over when you're clean, but really sweaty! Embarassed  Laughing

I suppose you could try hand cream.

As both of you are informed about Auburn, I am sorry but I needed to ask. I have two Auburn foxes, the white looks the normal we can see in the Internet, the black is mirrored. Is it normal regarding Auburn figures?

The shininess is not unusual. Is it still as flexible as the other one? If so then it's just surface patina from being handled. Brand new from package ones have a smooth surface but aren't really shiny. They pick up the shine from being handled. If it is harder, then someone may have coated it with something like a gloss finish. I wouldn't consider it a problem either way unless it bothers you. If it does try scrubbing it lightly with a toothbrush, that should break down the gloss surface a bit.
