Nattys has always given me very good results I'm sure I only paid £16
Have used DODO purple on black paint which was just as good but didn't last as long Small pots are available for £6 ota

Macc70 I was talking bout Wax-planet waxes being 30quid not Poorboys. I know that one is cheaper.

You also have a point with the sample sizes. They are cheap and the OP can benefit from a longer lasting wax for a smaller price point.

Perhaps the BH DSW is the longest lasting and best priced option TBH but I could also recommend Collinite waxes (476, 845) and Finish kare waxes (1000p and 2865).

Nattys was the first real wax I used and was very forgiving

I have just run out of dodo juice supernatural wax.
Thought I would give the car a top up as winter is comming. I used BH double speed as I already had some in stock, fearing the worst. A £15 wax vs a £60 wax.
Double speed looks way better in my eyes. Even Mrs Devilman said how hood the car was looking.
Will compare to contact 121 and evolution 2 over the month or so.

Agreed, was surprised by how difficult it was to remove.

Almost certainly over applied. However thin you think you've done it, do it thinner :-)

BH DS is a great cheap product BUT... if you want to spend sub £10 can i give a shout out for Armour All Shield... more of a sealant but its cheap as hell and easy to use! Ive become more of a snob now i must admit but when my little detailing wings were not allowing me to flee the nest yet this was okay!

Possibly, I was that used to the Farecla Supergloss Paste Wax application - leaving it for 15-20 mins and wiping off was incredibly easy. Even if it was over applied, it was still very easy to get off.

I left the Bilt Hamber on around the same length and I probably did over apply.

Just goes to show that some waxes require a much different approach than another.

Have recently started with detailing.
Poor boys were recommended for a beginner and I tried natty blue. I found it easy to use and gives a good finish.
Thought I would try something different so ordered infinity dark wax £10 + p&p, half price on a black Friday deal.
Had a quick wash and wax today and as the dark came in Sat post I used both and found the dark wax just as easy to use. I have done different bits of the car with different waxes to see if there was much difference in performance.
