autoglym bodywork shampoo

For the last 30 years i have been using autoglym products. Today was my second time using bodywork shampoo (purple square logo) and i found that was grabby as the wash mitt glided across the paint and it left a slight film on the paint.The car was not especially dirty and it has a good layer of Gardx (which i applied myself a moth ago). I am just wondering did any other users find this or was it just me. I also found the same issue the first time i used it
regards

Exactly the opposite for me , since the first time I tried it probably a year ago now I have not really found anything better , very slick under the wash pad and rinses away easy.

I use both Bodywork Shampoo & Conditioner (Green Square) and Bodywork Shampoo (Purple square) and they both feel plenty slippy under mitt to me.

The only difference to me is that plain Bodywork Shampoo (Purple square) is much foamier and also takes more rinsing off, as it doesn't have any rinse aids.

Ditto, no problem and was impressed with it.
