SV Best of Show vs. SV Crystal Rock - Worth the extra?

I have no first hand experience of either.

I am looking at the 50ml pots; BoS seems to be £68 and CR is £249

Is the CR worth the extra over BoS in terms of gloss and depth? I'm not too bothered about how long it lasts (I know CR is 6-12 months per layer and BoS is 3 months per layer, if im not mistaken).

Has anyone got experience of both?

Sunny

Forget crystal rock it's way way overpriced for what it is. Utopia is probably the best sv wax but you can't get that in sample sizes as far as I'm aware. I haven't used bos but blueberry on here rates it so that's good enough me.

Not used Crystal Rock, but am must say I prefer my Best of Show over my pot of Mystery so wouldn't personally be tempted to go higher than BOS in there hierarchy.

Okay, thanks for the advice guys! I'm a very lean user of wax anyway, and would take forever to use a 200ml pot. I'll stick to BoS

Thanks for the advice!

Had both over the years CR isn't even close to being worth the extra over BOS

Utopia is the one to get and you can now get it in 50ml sizes (scandic shine).

Is there much difference between any of them?

+1 I prefer Onyx easier to use than BoS , Onyx gives warmer finish with nice clarity. BoS gives more reflection more gloss but maybe amplify any defects in paint like orangepeel .
