Auto Allure Reflex wet look wax - review, 2nd car added

Bought a pot for my wife for her birthday - that's love that is

Smells very nice and used it on her car today.

It's a hard wax, so different than I've used before. Used a wo-wo foam applicator I had to apply, used a dry applicator go apply.

Car washed etc as normal...

Goes on well and I found it easy to use, the only difficulty I had (and suspect user error / inexperience with this type of wax) was judging had I got some on the foam applicator / had I got enough on the applicator. As soon as you start to apply to the car, went on very slick and the smell coming off the car was very nice.

Instructions say to leave to haze around 5 mins, well the sun came out again as I started to apply, so had a bit of a play - some panals left 5 mins, some less and some more. Buffed off easy whichever way I did it - I'd probably say the wax on and after a short period off was the easiest, but not sure if this allows the wax time to cure ?

Finished the car and went over it again with another clean microfibre cloth, it felt so smooth, slippery and you could 'feel' the car had been coated.

Not done a water / beading test yet - car was too nice - will pop some photos up and when (not if) it rains, will add one of the beading...

Wife very pleased with the results, it's added a nice depth of shine to the car and has made the flecks really pop in the paint.

2nd car / review added

So had a further play with the wax on my car this afternoon - glacier silver, so not as easy to get a deep shine / gloss as with dark car...

Did it slightly different this time, thought I'd try waxing the whole car, before buffing off rather than a couple of panels like yesterday, which is more like I'm used to doing and I wanted to see if it made it any more difficult to remove...

Easier to apply the wax today as I was more confident with knowing I had wax on the applicator pad and applied a nice thin coat to the car.

Once applied to the whole of the car, proceeded to buff off, no issues at all in buffing off, I would say on the vertical panels it seemed easier to buff off ?
In some respects, potentially easier to buff off today than yesterday, but that maybe due to slightly over applying or not waiting quite long enough (although it was hot) before buffing yesterday on wife's car.

Left a lovely, glossy, soft (?) feeling to the car, very impressed with the results on both cars and certainly recommend - oh and it still smells lovely

And cleaned my exhaust tips nicely

Looking good Andy.

I'm just trying out a few of AA's products and found the Luxallure shampoo really really nice.

I have this wax coming this week as it was 50% off so I'll look to use and review it.

Quick question though, how come you don't just upload the pics to your post's so that they are actually embedded in the post instead of having to click on the links within the post?

Cheers bud

Yes the Luxallure shampoo is wonderful. Hope you like the wax - feel free to add your review / photos on here.

Tried on my first review to get the pictures to go in the right place and to upload / embed, but just couldn't get them to go in the right place / do this via PC ? If I look on the PC I have to click on the link, but if I look on the iPad, then they show up fine (although not in right place).

Not sure what I'm doing wrong....

Try IMGUR.
Easy to use and it embeds the pics straight to the post as per my Luxallure review here http://www.detailingworld.co.uk/foru...d.php?t=396486

I'm still learning Imgur but one point that was mentioned to me is that when you copy the BB code then if you add a lower case L before the .jpg (presume this is for large size image) then it will resize the image to the right size for your posts.
