What is the best car wax 2018?

This wax, imported from Japan, has quite a soft consistency so is easy to work into the paint. It does come with an applicator but it isn’t the best quality. It dries very quickly and requires some extra elbow grease to remove, but it's a very strong product and lasts for a long time - up to 12 months, according to the manufacturer.

This product is quite a tough, hard wax, which means it’s not as smooth to apply as some others, but the results are good. It comes in a small 30ml tub or bigger 100ml version but you really don’t need a lot of the product. There's also a Supernatural Hybrid product available, which is not as high quality as this product but is a bit cheaper.

Bilt Hamber Auto Wash is our favourite car shampoo, and its car wax product is also excellent. It’s difficult to actually get hold of the product – your best bet will be finding it online - but it comes with a good quality cloth and applicator, and is great value. Easy to apply and remove with good water beading, it's a top product.

Simoniz Original Wax

What is the best car wax 2018?

This hard wax is easy to apply and leaves a nice shine with excellent water beading. It doesn't need to be left to dry, so can be wiped off once it's been worked into the paint. Simoniz says it will protect your car for up to 12 months and you'll only need to use it once or twice a year. In practise you'll need to use it more than that, but even still it's staggering value for money.

Hardwax by name, hard wax by nature. You hardly need any product but it leaves great results. Black Diamond have a big range of waxes and this is one of their best. It retains its gloss for around 8-10 months according to the manufacturer, and water beads off it very well.

The price for this product might look expensive, but it includes some useful kit. Along with the actual wax, you get two applicators and a cloth, and they’re all excellent quality. The wax itself is easy to apply and remove. It’s durable and offers an added depth of shine as well as great protection. It’s a tried and tested name and product, and if your budget can stretch to it it's worth the price.

You only need a small amount of product, and it's easy to apply and remove. It doesn’t leave behind any unwanted residue, and just needs a light wipe. Collinite is well known in the industry with a good reputation.
