Quick detailer/drying aid

Hi guys,

I had a search but couldn't find anything to answer my question. I've been away from DW for 4 years :-o so I'm a little out of the game.

I've been using turtle wax ice synthetic spray detailer as drying aid when washing and been happy with it. I've come to replace my last bottle and found it is no longer for sale.
I see turtle wax have an ice spray detailer now but can't tell if the same product with a slightly different name and new packaging.

Otherwise what's a good alternative?

Thanks

Optimum No Rinse diluted to QD strength makes a great rinse aid.

also just launched Britemax Remax is a spray sealant but is quick to work with like a QD and can be used sparingly on a wet car.

I've got AG Aqua Wax which has worked very well as a drying aid, recently got some BSD which I've also mixed 50/50 with the Aqua wax and it works really well and gives a lovely gloss

I Have in my kit as we speak

Meguiar’s® Synthetic X-Press
Sonax BSD
AA Glitter Hydrophobic
AA Radiant Detail Spray
AA Show Finish Quick Detailer
Car Plan super Gloss

Hard to pick a fav but i do show love for the Synthetic X-Press, no grab, easy on no buff and gloss is good

Thanks all. Looking at the suggestions a lot of them seem more like waxes or sealants rather than more of a QD or drying aid. Doing some research I've been considering the following

Megs last touch
CG after wash
CG synthetic quick detailer

Anyone got any experience of them?

Thanks

Megs last touch is only one i use , diluted 10:1 drying aid .Neat for a wipe over and leaves a brill gloss. Like most QD easy to apply and buff off
