Angelwax Enigma

Price Β£23.95

What Car? says...

Rated 3 out of 5

Angelwax stands out from the rest thanks to its delicious smell, and at a fairly reasonable price. It only needs to be left for a couple of minutes before removing and delivers brilliant results, but it's expensive considering the great value options it's up against.

Mothers Synthetic Wax

Price Β£11.73

What Car? says...

Rated 3 out of 5

This is a very wet wax which makes it easy to apply and take off. You get decent results with good protection and impressive water beading, and there's also Synthetic Paste Wax available if you want a harder wax from the same brand.

Collinite Insulator Wax

Price Β£16.95

What Car? says...

Rated 4 out of 5

Wetter product than the other Collinite on test but it's very difficult to get out of the tub you buy it in. Once you do it's a very nice consistency and requires minimal effort to remove. It's a heavy duty product suitable even for industrial use.
