You hear so much crap about ArmourAll that it's hard to know what's true. However, what I was told about it (& it's ilk - Kitten at least makes something virtually the same as do others) was that it draws oils out of the plastic to a degree, while leaving a wee bit behind on the surface. So if you continually use it, you'll be leaving some on the surface & it won't dry out (& crack etc), but if you use it a lot & then stop it's worse than if you'd never used it.
Of course, that all smells like "conspiracy theory" stuff, but it does fit with what I've seen happen when friends got their first new cars & were all excited & cleaning them every weekend ... and as time went by they lost interest & stopped using the ArmourAll (& copies) so regularly.
