You have the right idea, Try armorall,  thats a link to a company that sells it but you may want to buy it from your local car spears shop. I like this stuff. If you put plenty on, avoiding the electronic bits like clocks etc. Then use a damp microfibre to dull it down according to your liking. However colors and coatings won't go on the the future. Professional Smart Repair people hate this stuff, it can be removed using a soapy cleaner but its difficult to get all of it off for repairs. Anyway I don't usually recommend DIY  recoloring products as these are best left to the professionals.
