Leather water damage, am I about to make a big mistake?

Sorry guys, I know there are topics about this but none of them really comfort me.

My friend did some laundry and found his drier wasn't working after he washed them so he called me up and ask to use my drier. Of course I did and I made the mistake of letting him put it in the back seats since my trunk was pretty full already. It took about two hours to get to my place since we grabbed something to eat and when I saw my seats they were wet! Also my seat had two light scratches on it from the hamper. I read to immediately dried and condition the leather, which I did with the Texas heat and about 15mins of a hair dryer (the leather got really hot and I felt it wasnt the best for it). Then used Bick4 leather conditioner. It still looks like this and I cant the leather to match anymore (I have tried rewetting he seat with a damp rag and ring it). I'm about to just let it sit over night, is this the wrong thing to do?

Please help, thank you!


Also two very light scratches I can barely capture, I already picked up some black shoe polish from amazon.
